According to the survey, price matters a little more to online purchasers than those who buy in-store, and online purchasers on average report paying less for their mattresses. Amazon is a great example of a very low median price paid for an online mattress. As you might expect, the online retailer offers a wide selection of inexpensive mattresses from various manufacturers. Of the CR members who bought a mattress at Amazon, the median price paid was $433 in 2020, about $20 less than what they paid in our previous survey.
Amazon’s mattress selection is impressive: In addition to its own AmazonBasics brand, you’ll find brands with high-ranking mattresses in CR’s tests, such as Casper, Sleep on Latex, and Tuft & Needle. In addition to price, members gave Amazon favorable marks for selection, customer support, on-time delivery, and the quality of the delivery service.
