12 Reasons You Should buy a Mattress-In-A-Box Mattress

  • Blog
  • September 20, 2019

Despite the recent popularity in mattress-in-a-box companies, I still hear customers ask the same question every day in my store: Are mattress-in-a-box mattresses the same quality as a traditional mattress at Bob’s? The answer is yes.

I know this is a big concern of customers, especially since we all spend a large portion of our day sleeping. I get it. You want to know that you’re getting a high-quality, comfortable mattress and not sacrificing either of those traits because the mattress is shipped in a box.

Well, rest assured, dear friend. I’ve been doing this mattress-in-a-box thing LONG before the other guys and can honestly say that the quality of mattress-in-a-box mattresses is just as good as traditional mattresses. Plus, they’re super fun to set up.

Check out these twelve reasons why you should purchase a mattress-in-a-box. And don’t worry. If you still have questions about how the whole mattress-in-a-box thing works, feel free to stop by my Sleep Center at your nearest Bob’s Discount Furniture and my friendly associates will answer all of your questions.

1. Memory Foam that Stands the Test of Time

NASA might have invented Memory Foam, but Bob’s brought it down to Earth for everyone to enjoy. And we didn’t just start selling mattress-in-a-box mattresses yesterday when this craze became super popular. No, siree Bob! I’ve been doing this mattress-in-a-box thing since 2003, way before any of these other companies were some idea written down on a napkin. That’s over 16 years of experience and knowledge that has led us to create the best quality and most affordable mattress-in-a-box mattresses on the market. 

These comfy mattresses stand the test of time with their quality construction and world-famous Bob-O-Pedic Memory Foam. The thousands of five-star reviews show that my customers love their Bob-O-Pedic mattress-in-a-box mattresses. Heck, my Bob-O-Pedic Memory Foam mattresses are so popular, one even appeared in a novel! Speaking of novels, I’m just putting the finishing touches on my latest novel, “The History of Memory Foam Mattresses.” This one is sure to be a real page-turner!

2. Mattresses for Your Lifestyle

There’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all mattress. We all have different sleep preferences and tendencies, so it’s important to find a mattress that fits your needs. I mean, we do spend a big portion of our life sleeping, so it only benefits us to find a mattress that is going to give us the best possible sleep. That’s why I created a variety of mattress choices. Take a look and find the perfect mattress for you.

Hybrid Mattress

The perfect blend of comfort and support. The Hybrid mattress features Bob-O-Pedic Memory Foam plus a coil system for conformance.

Plush Mattress

If a super comfy mattress is your top priority, then go with a plush mattress. You’ll get all the comfort and support of the standard mattresses plus an extra layer of foam on the top. I recommend a plush mattress for side sleepers since it contours to your body.

Firm Mattress

The firm mattress is ideal for the sleeper that enjoys a lot of support and doesn’t like to feel like they are sinking into their mattress. Plus, you can still enjoy all the cool features that the other mattresses have to offer. For example, my Bob-O-Pedic Signature queen firm mattress features temperature regulation, odor control, pressure relief and layers of Bob-O-Pedic Gel Memory Foam and Bob-O-Pedic Quick Response Memory Foam. 

Dual Mattress

Are you and your partner having trouble deciding on plush or a firm mattress? Do you really enjoy the plush feel, but your partner wants a firm mattress? Well, the dual mattress is the perfect compromise something you won’t find at most mattress retailers. My dual mattresses feature plush on one side and firm on the other so both parties are happy. Sorry, I can’t help you decide which restaurant to pick!

3. High-Quality Mattresses

At Bob’s, mattress-in-a-box mattresses are the same quality as mattresses that don’t ship in a box and offer the same features. I believe everyone should have access to quality mattresses and furniture that doesn’t break their budget. This philosophy is one of the founding principles that led me to open my very first Bob’s Discount Furniture back in 1991. There’s no need to overpay for a fancy brand-name label mattress when you can purchase a comparable mattress from Bob’s and save a boatload of cash. A mattress is something you should feel comfortable sleeping on, not tossing and turning at night because you paid too much money.

All of my mattresses are built with quality materials and feature my everyday low price. Check out my Stardust Queen Plush mattress, for example. This mattress features a quilted knit cover and a layer of antimicrobial safeguard fiber that helps create a breathable sleep surface. There’s also comfort foam and Bob-O-Pedic Gel Memory Foam for pressure relief. Finally, a foam-encased individually wrapped coil system provides maximum support.

But don’t just take my word for it. Check out these five-star reviews from my other customers:

At first I didn’t expect much from the mattress, its just a mattress right. WRONG! It has made me sleep easier. I have a deep lower back dip and because of that arch i have back problems. So far no aches and pain in the morning.

This is an excellent bed for leg and back pain. A couple of my friends have the same bed and love it. Not to hard and not to soft. Just right.

4. Bob’s Discount on Mattress-In-A-Box Mattresses

You can save a lot of money! Get Bob’s Discount on mattress-in-a-box mattresses so you can sleep easy knowing that you didn’t overpay for a new mattress. There’s no need to pay for a fancy brand name label when you can have a comparable mattress from Bob’s without the inflated price tag.

5. A Mattress Warranty You Won’t Lose Sleep Over

I stand by the quality of my mattresses, which is why my warranties are better than the majority of my competitors. Warranties on my mattresses range from 1-year to 20-year non-prorated. In some cases, my warranties cover twice the amount of time as my competitors.

Let’s play a little game I like to call “Dare to Compare!”

My Signature Bob-O-Pedic Gel Queen Mattress vs. the Tempur-Pedic Tempur-Adapt: Both have cool-to-the-touch covers and foam technology. My Signature mattress is 13.5 inches thick compared to their 11 inches and has a 20-year warranty compared to their 10-year warranty. And we haven’t even mentioned price yet.

6. Comfort Replacement Policy

I want you to be completely satisfied with your mattress purchase, so I created my Comfort Replacement Policy. In the unlikely event that your mattress has a factory defect, we will replace it during the stated manufacturer’s warranty period. 

It’s common to experience an adjustment period with your new mattress. I recommend giving it at least 30 days to get a good feel. If you’re not satisfied with your new mattress, just contact my Customer Care Center at 860-474-1000 or 800-569-1284.

You can arrange for a one-time re-selection of the mattress only within 90 days of the original receipt day. You will only be responsible for any difference in the cost between the original and the re-selected mattress as well as the delivery charge. Mismatched bedding purchased from the Outlet is not eligible for a one-time re-selection.

 7. Try Before You Buy

Just because the mattress is shipped in a box doesn’t mean you can’t try it out in an actual store. Yes, we have those and they’re all across the country—121 of them! So feel free to stop by your nearest Bob’s and take a test nap. No, really. I know how important it is to find a mattress that suits your needs and I want you to be comfortable with the purchase. I also understand that shopping for a mattress can be a little confusing with all the different ads out there. 

According to a recent story by CNBC, there are 175 online mattress companies. No wonder it can be confusing to tell the difference between mattresses! My associates are more than happy to answer all of your questions and find the mattress that best fits you. 

8. No-Haggle Transaction

When you purchase a mattress-in-a-box mattress online, or any item online, you don’t have to worry about haggling the price. What you see online is the price you’re going to pay. And that’s just Bob’s philosophy anyway for everything I offer. From mattresses to sofas to dining room sets, bedroom sets, etc… I offer my everyday low price on all of our products. So the price you see on the first Sunday of the month is the same you’ll see on the second Wednesday and the third Friday.

I’m proud to offer one everyday low price, 365 days a year. It’s all part of Bob’s Discount. My team and I work hard the entire year to negotiate the best prices on mattresses and furniture and then we pass the savings onto you in the form of Bob’s Discount.

9. Shipping Included With Some Mattresses

A select group of my mattress-in-a-box mattresses has shipping included in the price. It’s like the cherry on top of the sundae. Plus, it saves you from having to do extra math, and I don’t know about you, but math was not my strongest subject! All of my mattresses that have shipping included feature direct shipping from the manufacturer.

10. Delivered to Your Door Almost Anywhere in the Country!

Everyone has a friend with a truck, but there are only so many times you can ask that guy for help. Good news for the truck guy, my mattress-in-a-box mattresses ship directly to your front door via FedEx. This saves you time from having to schedule delivery.

11. Mattress Takeaway with BOBtastic Delivery

If you order a mattress-in-a-box with other items such as a bedroom set and have them all delivered via BOBtastic White Glove Delivery Experience, the delivery team will remove your old mattress and/or foundation. Again, the guy with the truck will thank us for this one. 

As long as your mattress and foundation are in sanitary condition, the delivery team will remove them. This service is not available for mattresses and foundations that ship via FedEx or BOBtastic Threshold Delivery.

12. Fun to Set Up

Set up for your mattress-in-a-box mattress is fun and only takes a few minutes | Bob's Discount Furniture
Setting up your mattress-in-a-box mattress is fun and only takes a few minutes

Here’s my favorite part: the setup. It’s easy to do and also super fun. I just love watching the mattress expand from its compressed state to a full-size mattress! You’ll be surprised how long the initial expansion takes. It’s just a matter of a few minutes before you start to see your new mattress expanding.

I consider myself the luckiest spokespuppet ever because I get to talk about the thing I love the most everyday – furniture! Tufted headboards, rustic finishes, the difference between a sofa and a couch (yes, there is a difference)… I could go on and on. Oh, I just love furniture and I’m SO excited that I have this blog to share my passion with you! It may take me a little longer to create posts – have you ever tried typing with clay hands – but I look forward to talking furniture with you!
