What Makes it Different From Other Mattresses

Nectar is so confident that they make the best mattress for the price that they offer a lifetime warranty and trial period that lasts an entire year.

The Nectar is made with five layers of foam and comes in at 11” thick. On average, we tend to see 3-4 layers and 9”-10” thick with other mattresses in this category. It’s also on the lower end when it comes to price.

Nectar does offer a white glove service where they will come remove your old mattress and set your new Nectar up for you. Fees vary but you can expect this to cost around $170.

A Look Inside

The Nectar has five layers of premium foam that promote air circulation and offer support and appropriate weight distribution.

  1. cooling cover: promotes air circulation and is bed bug resistant
  2. quilted gel memory foam: provide air flow and contours your body
  3. gel memory foam: delivers weight distribution and pressure relief
  4. adaptive hi-core memory foam: supports the body
  5. breathing base layer: serves as a stable foundation

The Finer Print


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.


The Nectar mattress comes with a limited warranty for as long as you own the mattress. You can read more about the warranty policy here.


The Nectar arrives compressed and rolled in a cylinder shaped case. You will simply unwrap the mattress, unroll it on your foundation, and wait for it to expand. You can watch this video to see how it’s done.


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.

Return Policy

You will receive a full refund within the first year of getting your Nectar if you decide it’s not for you. (Yes, you read that right – a whole year.) Nectar will come pick up the mattress at no cost.

Mattress Reviews: What Nectar Customers Have to Say

After months of research into a new mattress an intro to nectar popped up. I took several weeks comparing my choices to nectar and with help from their customer service (2 thumbs up for them) I chose nectar. I have no regrets. My husband and I have the best night’s sleep, the mattress is plush and extremely comfortable and stays cool throughout the night.”

I’ve owned the Nectar Mattress for about 8 months now and it’s the best purchase I’ve made for my back‚ The last few mattresses I’ve used sleep well for about 5.5-6hrs and then the backache would kick in and I knew it was time to get up. With Nectar, I simply don’t want to get up!! I sleep the whole night. I’ve actually changed my sleeping habits, go to bed earlier to get more rest and wake up rejuvenated. To some this all may sound cliche and I think it does to me also, but I honestly have to say that this mattress has made a difference in the way I sleep and wake each morning. Best of all, they have a 365 day guarantee, if you don’t like it, return it.”

I was very hesitant to buy a mattress without trying it out first, but I did a lot of research and decided to take the risk. I tried several different styles of memory foam mattresses in stores and I’d say this falls right in the middle. It’s not too hard, and not too soft. I sink in just enough to feel supported, but not so much that it’s difficult to move. It took me about two weeks to adjust to it. I was stiff in different places, but after a month, I sleep much more soundly, I wake up less in the middle of the night, and I’m not sore in the morning. I am very pleased with our purchase.”
