There are nearly 200 bed-in-a-box online mattress retailers. Amerisleep, headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona, was founded in 2010 and is one of the more established mattress companies in the online memory foam mattress industry.
Its founders Firas Kittaneh, Moe Kittaneh, and Joey Holt first began working on their concept in 2006, giving this company a long history of strong leadership and experience. This can lend consumers confidence in considering Amerisleep because many online mattress retailers are new to the industry. Its mission to sell its customers a high-performance, eco-friendly, and American-made mattress at a good price also sets it apart within the industry.
After pioneering the online mattress shopping experience with Amerisleep, its founders decided to open several Amerisleep retail locations that feature its high-tech Dream Suites to allow shoppers to privately test out its mattresses.
Many online mattress retailers realize that not all customers are satisfied with a purely memory foam mattress and now offer a hybrid model as well that incorporates more traditional innersprings. Amerisleep’s mattress line is made up of two mattress types: memory foam or hybrid. Its hybrid mattresses (AS2 Hybrid, AS3 Hybrid, and AS5 Hybrid) are made of plant-based Bio-Pur® and pocketed innerspring coils to deliver pressure-relieving comfort and bouncy support. Amerisleep points out on its website, with impressive honesty, that hybrid mattresses typically do not last as long as memory foam mattresses.
Amerisleep’s main mattress focus is its memory foam line which is made up of five mattresses (AS1-AS5) that differ in terms of their firmness, profile height, and layer construction. All come with an ultra-breathable cover and a Green Guard fire sock which keeps you safe without using chemical-based flame retardants that other companies use on their mattresses to make them fire safe.
Amerisleep manufactures its mattresses in the United States. Many of the top online mattress retailers also manufacture in the United States so this isn’t an Amerisleep exclusive, but it does keep it in line with industry competitors. It also places a heavy emphasis on eco-friendly manufacturing and utilizes a unique plant-based foam in its products.
Like many other online mattress retailers, Amerisleep offers its customers a full line of accompanying products such as bed bases, pillows, and bedding. Other companies have branched out even further and offer customers mattress and bedding lines for children and pets.
Most online mattress retailers will offer customers a selection of about three mattresses. They are often broken down by low, medium, and highest price and ranging in firmness levels. Amerisleep offers customers a much larger variety of mattresses so you can likely come closer to your ideal mattress fit. Its line includes two memory foam mattresses and three hybrid mattresses.
Instead of only offering mattresses in soft, medium, and firm, Amerisleep also offers customers a medium firm and medium soft option.
In line with the competition, Amerisleep gives customers free shipping and free returns to anywhere in the contiguous United States. It does ship to Alaska and Hawaii for an extra shipping charge. It does not ship to APO addresses. It also does not charge a restocking fee if you return your mattress, and there are no other hidden fees.
Most online mattress retailers offer a 10-year warranty or less. Amerisleep offers an impressive 20-year warranty with some limitations that you should be aware of. The warranty is broken into two 10-year time periods with different warranties. The first 10 years is a full replacement warranty. The second 10 years is a prorated warranty from the original purchase date of the original purchase.
One reason that Amerisleep offers this robust warranty is the proprietary Bio-Core® in all Amerisleep mattresses that resists sag for years. Edge support is often a major reason for early mattress returns. It refers to how much a mattress sinks when you sit on its edge. Thinner, more flexible mattresses will be more likely to sink around the edges with time.
It is common for some of the top online memory foam mattress retailers to be certified by CertiPUR-US®, an independent organization. This basic certification tells consumers that the foam used by the manufacturer is free of toxins such as ozone depleters, mercury, formaldehyde, and phthalates. Amerisleep is CertiPUR-US® certified and its foams are made using low Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) which means less of the off-gassing smell you may associate with a memory foam mattress.
Amerisleep mattresses are also made from memory foam that is at least partially plant-derived although it does not disclose what percent of the typical petroleum is off-set with plant-derived compounds. It was one of the first retailers to utilize plant-based foam demonstrating its commitment to eco-friendly practices.
A main component of its eco-friendly memory foam is Amerisleep’s Bio-Pur® material, an extreme open-cell memory foam that dissipates heat quicker than traditional foams, is temperature neutral, and has a quick response time. It is made from partially plant-based sources using a zero-emission process.
There are several sales models used by online mattress retailers. Many have realized that there is a significant customer base that would prefer to try a mattress before they buy and have built brick and mortar retail locations. Others have partnered with existing mattress retailers and now allow their mattresses to be sold in select showrooms.
Amerisleep has retail locations in four states which are fairly limited. If you live in Texas, Arizona, Colorado, or Oregon then you should be able to find an Amerisleep showroom near you to try out its mattresses, If not, then you’re out of luck. Of course if you’re not close to one of its showrooms you still have Amerisleep’s 100 night, risk free trial.
Amerisleep’s queen mattresses start at $1,299. This puts it in the middle price range of the online mattress retailer industry. There are definitely memory foam mattresses that cost significantly less than this; however, they typically do not offer the same level of quality. Some mattress companies start their prices significantly higher.
Amerisleep is often running some sort of promotion, so we recommend that you wait for one before ordering.
Amerisleep does not currently offer its customers any financing options for its mattresses. This can be very inconvenient for many buyers. The company did confirm that as of September 2020 it is actively pursuing offering financing to its customers in the future.
