  • Lifetime warranty as long as you own the mattress
  • Affordable quality mattress with excellent trial period

Highlights

  • Casper is one of the early market leaders in the foam mattress space and offers a good universal mattress for the average sleeper.
  • Casper has crafted a memory foam mattress that is breathable and promotes airflow, so you won’t get that hot, sinking feeling that you would with traditional memory foams.
  • The Casper team is continually refining its design based on customer feedback and sleep tests; so buying a Casper today doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the same one from a couple years ago. Casper’s latest innovation – Zoned Support – is a new foam system that contours high-pressure areas like your hips, shoulders, and core to provide relief and support where it’s needed most.
  • The Nectar mattress has a pretty happy (and well-rested) fan base – they have overwhelmingly positive reviews and fewer than 3% of customers end up returning their Nectar mattress.
  • Its proprietary cover is specifically designed to keep out dust mites – which is good because this mattress should last you a while.
  • Nectar is so confident that they make the best mattress for the price that they offer a lifetime warranty and trial period that lasts an entire year.
