How to buy the right mattress

The J.D. Power survey can give you great insights into choosing the right mattress. However, don’t stop there. The more you research mattresses and the companies that sell them, the more likely you are to make a good choice.

For example, you might want to choose a mattress store with a liberal return policy. As we have reported:

“Buy from a store that offers ‘comfort returns,’ meaning that you can return the mattress if you’re unhappy for any reason, though you may need to pay a fee. Before buying, understand exactly what a warranty covers and how the return policy works.”

Whatever you do, don’t cut corners when buying a mattress. You will sleep on the mattress every night, and your physical and emotional well-being depend on getting proper rest. So, price should not be the sole factor when choosing a mattress.
