If you’re shopping around for a budget mattress, you’ve probably taken a look at the options available on Amazon. You may have even noticed that Amazon offers their own brand mattress, the Amazon Rivet.
You can learn all about it in our in-depth Amazon Rivet mattress review. We’ll walk you through how it scored in our proprietary mattress testing system and give you all the insider information you should know before purchasing.
- The Rivet offers three layers of comforting and supportive foam to help you drift off into peaceful and restorative sleep.
- The top layer of LURAcor alt latex foam seamlessly responds to your body’s movements during the night helping you stay asleep. It also works to provide relief at your pressure points and keep your spine aligned throughout the night.
- Less expensive than most memory foam mattresses, the Rivet is a great option for those on a tight budget.
The Amazon Rivet mattress is a budget-friendly bed-in-a-box that you can buy directly from Amazon. Its medium feel appeals to most sleepers. With three layers of supportive and pressure-relieving foam, the Rivet is a good choice for people on a tighter budget looking for a cheaper mattress.
What Makes the Amazon Rivet Different?
The Rivet’s cover fabric is woven with Celliant, a patented mineral blend that increases the delivery of oxygen to your cells for recovery, making this a great option for active people or sleepers with pain.
Sold by the major online retailer, Amazon, where you can opt for two-day shipping which is much quicker delivery than most mattress retailers with around 7 to 10-day delivery windows.

What to Watch Out For
- The return process for the Amazon Rivet is very difficult. To return this product, you must call customer support. Otherwise, if you go through the automated process (which Amazon makes very easy do you don’t have to call), they will send you a UPS return label and expect you to have the mattress picked up. The problem is if you have unboxed your mattress this is impossible because you won’t be able to get it back in the box. However, if you call and tell them you have a mattress to return they don’t require you to ship it back.
- Be aware that your Rivet mattress may have a mild scent when you unbox it – this is normal and should go away within a few hours.
- The Rivet takes longer to puff up than other mattress options when unboxing. It may take a few hours for your Rivet to fully take its form.
- It can take up to 30 nights to get used to sleeping on your Rivet mattress – particularly if your previous mattress was a traditional innerspring mattress.
- The Rivet is currently only available in sizes full, queen and king.

⭐Total Score for the Amazon Rivet⭐
See how the Rivet performed in our mattress tests to help you determine if this could be the mattress for you.
Unboxing the Mattress
It took us exactly a minute and a half to unbox the Amazon Rivet mattress. This mattress was light and easy to maneuver. However, it did no decompress immediately. It took a couple hours to take its full shape. There was a lot of wrapping and the mattress had a pretty potent odor. Take a look at the video below!
Testing Motion Transfer
While our sleep subjects were testing motion transfer on the Rivet they couldn’t even tell when their partner got on and off the bed. So for the first part of our motion transfer test, they gave the Amazon Rivet a 9.
Then, we evaluated motion transfer by performing the wine test. That wine was only a little shakey, so we gave it an 8 out of 10. Take a look at the video below!
Mapping Pressure Relief
When our sleep subjects were on the Amazon Rivet mattress, we saw only a minimal amount of pressure in their shoulders. So for a total pressure relief score, the Rivet received an 8.75 out of 10.
Spine Alignment Check
While on the Amazon Rivet mattress we saw a dip in the lower back of each sleep subject. This indicates poor core support of the mattress model. Take a look below.
“The bed is great. My wife and I both experience deeper sleep. I’ve been having dreams like I haven’t had in years. The bed is nice that you are less disturbed by movement in the bed given the foam. It has a slight firm feel.” – Weston
“I don’t know what specifics I can provide but this mattress is simply the most comfortable bed I’ve ever slept in. Not owned. Slept in. High end hotels included. When you lay down on this mattress, it cradles your body so there is absolutely no pressure points anywhere.” – Darren C.
“I bought this mattress to replace my previous of about 8 years. I have back pain, and this is my first foam mattress. In using this for just over a week, I can tell a difference in the morning with less back pain and stiffness. I thought the features along with the price point make this a great buy. We were looking at spending over $2k at a store, and am glad we didn’t! I’ll have to follow up after more time goes by, but so far we are quite happy.” – Adam K.
