What to Watch Out For

  • The GhostBed Luxe may have an odor upon unboxing. This should go away within a few days, but it’s best to let it air out before putting sheets on it.
  • It may take up to 30 nights to get used to sleeping on your new GhostBed Luxe mattress – particularly if your previous mattress was a traditional innerspring mattress.

Customer Reviews on the GhostBed Luxe

My new mattress is great! I was worried that the material would make a pocket that would be difficult to turn out of (I move around a lot when I sleep), but after the first night I knew it wouldn’t be a problem. The Ghost mattress is a great buy for sleepers of any type! Katherine B.
Best sleep I’ve ever had! So glad I made the switch to Ghostbed. Michael L.
This is our first foam bed and we are pleased. Easy entry and exit, you don't have to climb out of a hole. Seems cool enough and feels well made. Company was easy to deal with and had everything within 5 days of ordering. Edward Y.

GhostBed Luxe FAQs

How does the 101-night trial work?

GhostBed offers a 101-night sleep trial to every customer. If you decide the GhostBed Luxe mattress isn’t right for you, you can contact customer support to schedule a return and receive a full refund. GhostBed asks that you allow 30 night before deciding to return your mattress. Also note that the sleep trial is only available for purchases directly through GhostBed, not other retailers. While the GhostBed Luxe is available for returns and refunds, the adjustable base offered by GhostBed is not included in this policy.

Is the GhostBed Luxe free of chemicals?

All of the materials in the GhostBed Luxe are CertiPUR-US certified, meaning they meet the most rigorous standards in the industry for safety and construction.

Does the GhostBed Luxe have a break-in period?

Once you unbox your GhostBed Luxe, it may take up to 24 hours to expand to its full size and adjust to your room’s temperature. You can sleep on it immediately, though it is advised to allow some time for expansion and odor dissipation. Your body may take some time to adjust to the materials of a new mattress. Allow 30 nights to fully adjust.
