GhostBed Company Information

Couple sitting on the Ghostbed mattress

You’re probably wondering why these mattresses are called “GhostBeds.” Well, the founder, Marc Werner, used to be afraid of ghosts hiding under his bed, hence the name. But in 2001, he got tired of painful sleep after three neck surgeries and decided to create his own mattress.

GhostBed is made in the US and is sold direct-to-customer, allowing them to keep prices low. Their mission is “to produce and deliver the highest possible quality for a bigger, better and more affordable mattress,” and today they still meet it.

Mattress Sizes

Every GhostBed model is available in Twin through California King. See the table below for model dimensions.

GhostBed Twin XL 38″ x 80″
GhostBed Full 54″ x 75″

Shipping

Shipping is free for US residents in the continental US. If you live in Alaska or Hawaii, the cost is $600. Regardless, your GhostBed should arrive at your door in 3-5 days.

FAQs

Where can I purchase a GhostBed mattress?

GhostBeds are available for purchase on GhostBed’s website. Select models can be purchased through Amazon.

How does the trial period work?

Your 101-day trial starts the day your mattress is delivered. From then, you have 101 nights to sleep on it and decide if the mattress is right for you. If you would like to return the mattress, contact the GhostBed customer support team within your trial period window, and they will walk you through the process. Please allow at least a 30 night break-in period before initiating a return. A representative will arrange for your mattress to be picked up donated to a local charity.

Do GhostBeds Need to be Flipped?

Nope! You should never flip the GhostBed because the comfort layers are on the top side. To increase the lifespan of your GhostBed, rotate the mattress 180 degree or head-to-toe every 6 months.
