|Mattress Advisor Score:||8.6/10|
In this review, we’ll walk you through everything you need to know about the Nectar mattress, including how it scored in our Mattress Advisor test. We’ll also give you an overview of the benefits Nectar provides to its customers – like a whole year to see if you want to keep the mattress! Read on to learn why the Nectar mattress is such a great value.
Here’s how the Nectar mattress scored on different tests and evaluations. Each score is a rating out of 10 points. The total score is a weighted average that incorporates all of the functional and performance characteristics of the mattress. We break down the scores so you can see how the Nectar mattress performed on specific tests and evaluations.
How quickly the mattress ships to your home. (Free shipping = better score!)
The length of time offered to help you decide if you want to keep the mattress.
Ease of return process including refund policy and how the mattress is removed from your home.
Length of mattress warranty and what is covered.
How easy it is to set up the mattress and move it.
How well the mattress performs at isolating motion.
The level of support offered on the edges of the mattress.
How well the mattress relieves pressure, particularly around the hips, shoulders, and thighs.
How well the mattress helps keep your spine in proper alignment while you’re sleeping.
How well the mattress adjusts to different movements or sleeping positions throughout the night.
How well the mattress promotes airflow and breathability, or offers special cooling properties.
Quality and durability of materials, structural support, and expected lifespan of the mattress.
How helpful and responsive the customer service team is.
A measure of social mission, community involvement and charitable giving/partnerships.
Take a look at our Nectar mattress review and see how it performed in our testing to help you determine if this could be the mattress for you.
Note: At the time of our testing, we spoke with customers who were experiencing a 2-4 week waiting period for their mattress to be delivered. We have since confirmed that Nectar switched their supplier and is now shipping mattresses the same day that orders are placed. We also learned more about Nectar’s new giving programs, which increased their social mission score. Additionally, the price for a queen mattress is now $699.
The first couple of things that set Nectar apart from other mattresses are the trial period and warranty. Nectar certainly beats out competition by offering a full calendar year to try out their mattress and a warranty that lasts as long as you own the mattress. And as we mentioned in the highlights, only 3% of customers end up returning the mattress within that trial period. Typically, we see trial periods around 100 days and warranties that last for 10 years or so.
When evaluating the mattress itself, Nectar scored well on things like motion isolation, pressure relief, and responsiveness. These are all really important factors to consider when choosing your mattress – particularly if you share the bed with someone or tend to change positions throughout the night.

Take a look at how the Nectar mattress compares to other popular brands
From the day that your Nectar mattress is delivered, you will have 365 nights, or a full year, to decide if the mattress is right for you. If you’re not sleeping great on the Nectar for any reason and decide to return it, you’ll simply contact Nectar’s customer support team and they will walk you through the return process. A Nectar representative will arrange for your mattress to be picked up from your home and donated to a local charity in need. You won’t need to worry about putting your mattress back in the box or taking it anywhere special.
It does – in fact, all mattresses do! It can take up to 30 days to fully break in your new mattress. During this time, your body will get used to the new mattress feel and the mattress will have time to fully take shape and provide all the benefits it was designed to offer.
Great sleep is in reach no matter your financial situation! If you prefer to pay for your Nectar mattress over a period of time, you can opt for 6 months of low, interest-free payments through Affirm. Simply select this option at checkout. No credit check is required and you can apply by using a bank account, credit or debit card and proving a source of income.
The Nectar ships free in the lower 48 states and should arrive at your door within 2-5 business days. Nectar also offers a white glove service where someone will come to remove your old mattress and set up your new one for ~$170, but price may vary.
Nectar is designed to be used on one side only, meaning you shouldn’t flip the mattress.
If you refer a friend to Nectar, your friends will receive $125 off their mattress plus two free pillows, and you will receive a $50 Amazon gift card after they complete their purchase.
All the foams in the Nectar mattresses are CertiPUR-US® certified, meaning they meet some of the most rigorous standards for emissions, content, performance, and durability.
Nectar’s cover can be unzipped completely and spot cleaned with mild detergent. It’s recommended that you use a water resistant mattress cover to protect your Nectar mattress.
