Worst mattress I have ever purchased.

By Karla K., Houston, TX, Verified Reviewer

We were not happy with our new Sleep Number mattress because the softness of the mattress is not distributed evenly causing discomfort. This was true for both sides of the mattress. Both my husband and I had the same experience. Because of this, I called Sleep Number, requested return, had mattress picked up, received credit for less than what was owed to me, called back to request owed refund and agent was extremely rude. I suggested she get another agent to assist me and she proceeded to disconnect my call. All of this after waiting 22 minutes on hold for an agent, common practice when calling Sleep Number for a return. I know because I called 3 times and was made to hold each time. Please be aware that the Sleep Number trial requires you to pay $430.00, little fact they do not advertise.

Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

A review 6 years in the making

By Colene R., Missouri, Verified Reviewer

Sleep Number beds are pretty good BUT...there are a few things you need to know before you make the purchase.

First, if you like a firm mattress, Sleep Number is great because you can keep it firm over time. Second, if you like a firm mattress and your co-sleeper likes squishy, well, you've seen the ads. That stuff you probably figured out.

Here's what you may not know: Sleep Number with no foam on top is hard as a rock no matter how low you set your number. So, be prepared to add a mattress topper. The good news here is that if you bought the thin Sleep Number, like I did, sheets will still fit over it. The bad news is that you are going to struggle finding one that doesn't make you sweat and you'll need to replace it every 3 years or so. There are models that have a thick foam top and that's supposed to eliminate the need for a separate topper. But, foam compacts over time so if you get that model, you are right back into the short lifespan of a standard mattress.

Finally, Sleep Number beds will need to have parts replaced. You're going to need new air bags, hoses, and a pump. It will happen a lot sooner than the advertising leads you to believe. And, while you wait for these parts to arrive on your doorstep, you're going to be sleeping on your couch. So, you may fall in love with your Sleep Number the first week you sleep on it but be aware that you are going to spend about $200 every other year on parts. We've had ours for 6 years. We've spent $800 on two mattress toppers, one replacement air bag and a replacement pump. Warranty? Yes. That's with the warranty.

Do not buy!

By Rachel S., Garner, NC, Verified Reviewer

We spent a fortune on the mattress, base, sheets, pillows, etc.

After sleeping on it, my husband had an allergic reaction to the materials which caused welts all over his body.

We obviously couldn't keep this.

I called customer service to schedule a return and after being on the phone for almost an hour was told I couldn't return the base, the sheets, pillows, and mattress topper. The only thing they would take back was the mattress itself, but still charged me another $199 to pick it up.

I am disgusted that a company that is supposed to be top of the line has such terrible policies. I spent a small fortune on this, and they won't refund me until seven days after pick up, which is a month away.

I will never purchase anything here again, and will warn off friends and family. My neighbor was going to buy one this week, but after telling them my horror story, they have decided against it.

Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Like the bed but not the buying experience.

By David B., Missouri, Verified Reviewer

The i10 bed has great features, and worth the extra money for the foot lift and other extra benefits. Plenty of luxury, comfort, and flexibility. We "mostly" love it. One issue for us is the very wide "gap" between the bed and headboard, so our pillows slip and fall in between, quite often.

Separately, I must report that our buying experience was poor. Our salesperson was inexperienced; it took three hours to "check out," and among other issues, he couldn’t process a credit card, but promised to do so the next morning, when a store manager would be present that knows how to use the system. But wait, it gets much worse...

The Assistant Manager called the next morning but reneged on the pricing that the salesman the night before had agreed to. In addition, the salesman had forgotten to give us the instructions we needed for pre-delivery, and therefore, we had to have the installers come, twice. We previously didn’t know that we needed a frame to connect the bed to the bed board, so we had to first buy one and have the installers come out again.

The bed is very nice but be sure that the store’s "top manager" is present (inside the store) before you even get started. In this case, once we came back and met personally with the head-manager, some of the problems got fixed, and he made an effort to make good on some of the issues.

Never buy from Sleep Number

By Kelly Pressler, Virginia, Verified Reviewer

To make a long story short, we wanted a Cal King four poster bed frame and a Sleep Number mattress to go into the bed. We ordered the mattress in December 2017 and it was delivered and set up on the 22nd (the setup took less than 10 minutes). We did not have the bed frame yet, we didn't find one we liked for a month or two and then it took a while to get it.

We finally had our new Cal King four post bed delivered on April 8th, 2018. We set the bed up and it looked great, we then tried to put the mattress on the bed, well, it didn't fit. It was too wide and it was too short for the bed frame. We naturally thought it was the bed frame, well, it wasn't. In December, when we went to the Tysons Corner Sleep Number store in Virginia, requested if a Cal King P6 mattress was an option, we were told yes, so we paid for it then and there. The salespeople were a little perplexed at the Cal King requested but assured us that we could get it, it might just take a little longer. So instead of ordering a Cal King they ordered just a King, and it is not obvious by all the order codes on the paperwork what we ordered, so we didn't catch it.

When the mattress was delivered and set up, there is no tag that says what size mattress you have, so we didn't catch it there either. We did catch it when we tried to put a King mattress on a Cal King bed frame, but customer service says it's past the first 100 days so they will not fix the problem.

We recommend anyone doing business with Sleep Number to check what you order and have the salesperson write specifically what you order in plain English on the order form because they will sell you something in stock vs. what you want if they think you won't notice or don't know any better.

One last thought. My wife had issues with sales and customer service; she felt like they were treating her like she was dumb and didn't know anything, I also witness this when I talked to them. It might be isolated, but worth mentioning. Our Sleep Number customer number is 1013881647.

The best experience I had with Sleep Number

By Jeanette Pritchard, Michigan, Verified Reviewer

I went to a Sleep Number store, and it was a great experience. I got a new pillow to try out and to give my opinion on my pillow, and I slept so good and it helped my neck, and my husband is going to get the bed for my birthday.

Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

It is not TRULY returnable

By Brandon Moran, California, Verified Reviewer

We gave the bed an honest try, but didn't end up liking it. It caused neck pain for my wife no matter what setting we used, and it never ended up feeling comfortable.

Lo and behold, we come to learn that the "adjustable base" is not returnable (!). We are out over $4000 on the process, counting delivery and return fees. Quite the incredible scam they have going. Be careful.

Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Terrible company, incompetent staff, overpriced mattress.

By Karen , CA

Sleep Number is one of the worst companies my spouse and I have ever dealt with. The mattresses are overpriced air mattresses and the personnel is incompetent. First off, they had our phone number incorrect from when we placed the order so we received an email telling us that they tried scheduling the delivery of the mattress but could not get ahold of us. We called and corrected the number and finally had the mattress delivered.

The drivers couldn’t find our condo (even though there is a map at the front showing exactly where each unit is in the complex). It was installed and the delivery men were nice enough. But from the first night we slept on the mattress we knew we wanted to return it. The next day we called to return the bed and were told we had to wait 30 days. Nowhere on the contract or print information we were given does it say that you have to wait 30 days to make a return.

Second what they don’t tell you is that you will not be refunded the close to $179.99 you were charged for delivery and installation AND that you will have to pay another $179.99 to have it removed or you may ship it back yourself for about $120 with their shipping labels. So, we waited the 30 days and called back to return the bed. We were then told that their system was being upgraded and that they couldn’t process the return and they had no idea when the system would be up and running. We were told they would call us back when it was up or that we could call back at some point.

Eventually a couple weeks later we called back and the system was up (but no one called us first to inform us) and we got our return initiated. This is when we find out that we were going to get charged for both the initial delivery and for the removal of the mattress. Now we had to wait for the deliver/removal department to call us to schedule our appointment to pick up the mattress. The person on the phone who processed the return asked for contact phone number (this is important for later). We figured it’d be easier if we just paid the extra money and have them pick it up. Well they didn’t call us and it’d been a couple of weeks so we call them instead and we are told that their system is down and that nothing can be scheduled until it’s up and running. So we wait again for them to call us. Eventually we get an email stating that they tried calling us and couldn’t get ahold of us and that we should call them to make the appointment for pick up.

When we call them we find out that they had our phone number incorrect, AGAIN, even though the person who processed the return confirmed a contact phone number with me. Okay, so we schedule our appointment and we get a window between 8am-12pm. The day of the appointment, just to be on the safe side we call early in the morning to confirm the delivery people have our correct phone number because they are supposed to call us when they are close by. Well, the person on the phone looks up the phone number they have on record and you guessed it, it’s incorrect, AGAIN. So the person updates it in the system. Mind you this person was pretty rude. We ask her how the delivery people will know about the correct phone number and she dismisses our concern and says they will get the info. So as soon as we hang up with her, we call back to confirm. This person is nicer and says that the delivery people receive a text message with the information.

Okay so we wait, and wait, and it’s 11:45am and we haven’t heard from anyone. So we call back and ask what the delay is. The customer service person tells us that the delivery people are running behind but that we will still get our mattress picked up at some point. So we wait again. It’s 1:30pm and we haven’t heard anything. We call customer service again and the person tells us same thing the previous person did, that they are running behind. This time we tell the person that we were told this already earlier and that we were not planning on spending the whole day at home waiting for the mattress to be picked up, if he can somehow find out when they will come.

The person finally says, let me call the delivery people. When he gets back on the phone he says, “I’m so sorry but they tried to pick up the mattress earlier and they couldn’t get ahold of you nor could they find your unit so they left and continued on their route and now they are done for the day.” Excuse me?! We called them multiple times during the morning to correct our phone number, to ensure that we would have the mattress picked up that day and now we are told that there’s nothing to be done. The customer service person was very sorry and said that the delivery people couldn’t get ahold of us because they had the incorrect phone number. We called on several occasions to get that corrected. Apparently the delivery people are supposed to call the company when they cannot get ahold of the customer, but these people did not. So we waited for 6 hours at home just to be told “sorry.”

To make things worse, we were moving at that time and needed to be rid of the mattress ASAP. But we were told that their next available appointment wasn’t for a couple of weeks. So we decided to ask for shipping labels instead. At this point we are fuming and ask to speak to a supervisor. Well we never get a supervisor, instead the customer service person tells us that we can get credited the money we were being charged to remove the bed. But since we couldn’t get an appointment soon enough and we’d be using shipping labels then we’d get credited the amount of the labels. So we get transferred to another customer service person to help us with the shipping labels. She tells us that we will get the labels in our email within 48 hours. Days pass and we don’t receive the labels. We call back and are told that the labels had actually been mailed to us. Why did the person tell us she emailed them then? So we get labels emailed to us finally. We pack up the mattress, we mail it back and when we get our credit, it doesn’t show the full amount, that is, Sleep Number still charged us for the shipping labels after we had been assured we would not be charged for them due to our trouble. So we have to call back, AGAIN, to sort out the billing.

This is one of the worst experiences we’ve had with any company. We do not recommend Sleep Number. If you want a good mattress, look somewhere else. Do not waste your time and money and keep your sanity.

Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
