TUFT & NEEDLE Original Mattress

 Tuft & Needle Mattress

The T&N Original Mattress tops our list of most budget-friendly mattresses. This model pioneered the proprietary T&N Adaptive Foam that was designed to suit all sleeping positions. It is medium-firm (6.5/10 on the firmness scale), which is comfortable for most people. The foam feels contouring and responsive. It’s also infused with gel and graphite, both of which wick away body heat. This model earned consistently high marks for pressure relief and spinal alignment.

  • Type: All-foam mattress
  • Specifics: 2 layers, 10”
  • Price Range: $350-$750
  • Best For: Stomach sleepers, back sleepers, budget shoppers

Tuft & Needle Mint Mattress

The T&N Mint Mattress is the highest rated of the collection, according to both customers and our lab testers. It’s an enhanced version of the original mattress, and earned higher scores for cooling, spinal alignment, and responsiveness. T&N says that this model has 30% more graphite in the comfort layer, plus extra cooling ceramic gel beads in the transition layer, both of which help to wick away heat. Additionally, all 3 foam layers, including the support layer, are made of breathable open cell polyfoam.

  • Type: All-foam mattress
  • Specifics: 3 layers, 12”
  • Price Range: $595-$1,145

Learn All About the Tuft & Needle Company

Tuft & Needle started when JT Marino and Daehee Park decided to quit their Silicon Valley jobs and design one mattress for every kind of sleeper. As engineers, they researched everything they could about how mattresses work, and eventually partnered with a team of chemists to develop their signature Adaptive Foam.

After launching in 2014, Tuft & Needle grew exponentially, and was accredited by the Better Business Bureau (BBB) in 2017. In 2018, they merged with Serta Simmons Bedding. They design and produce all of their mattresses in the USA. Currently, T&N offers the 3 mattress models in this comparison, plus a suite of sleep products like pillows, sheets, and bed frames.

Financing

T&N has partnered with Affirm to provide financing to their customers. At checkout, choose the financing option, and you may be approved for 3, 6, or 12 month loan repayment periods. All interest is included in the loan total given to you right when you’re approved. If you need to return or cancel your order, the full refund (minus interest) will be processed through Affirm within 3-10 business days.

Shipping and Delivery

Standard shipping on all T&N products is free, except in Alaska or Hawaii. Fees to Alaska or Hawaii are $30-$80 for small or medium sized products and $150-$200 for mattresses.

Items are delivered within 3-7 business days (7-10 days for AK or HI). You’ll get a delivery estimate at checkout. T&N delivers through FedEx ground, so they can’t schedule specific delivery days, but they can delay shipments.

If you order multiple items, they’ll ship separately and be delivered to your doorstep. Mattresses are compressed, rolled, and boxed. You may notice a little bit of off-gassing after unboxing your mattress, but it should be gone after a few hours in a well ventilated room.

Trial Period and Warranty

T&N thinks you’ll love their products, but understands that you may change your mind. They give you a 100-night sleep trial to test out their mattress. You can return the mattress during the trial period for a full refund (minus shipping costs).

If you want to try a different mattress, you can exchange your original model for a new one. T&N will charge (or refund) you the difference between the costs of the two mattresses. You only get one return or exchange per household each year, and you won’t get another trial period.

Once the sleep trial ends, your 10-year warranty begins. It covers manufacturing defects, specifically sagging, body impressions deeper than 0.75”, cracks in the foam, and cover defects. If you think you qualify for a repair or replacement mattress, email support@tn.com.
