Project Description

Online versus In-store

Buying a mattress is hard, but we will help you get sorted and find the best process for your buying preferences! From cross comparing online to doing to lay test in a showroom, each route has its benefits and drawbacks.


Traditional stores provide you with a variety of mattresses you can feel and try it out in-person before spending a penny. Try these beds right away and have a salesperson answer your every question right away. You can also negotiate with things such as price or other perks all the while having access to sales events and discounts that are only offered in-store. Giving you greater confidence and peace-of-mind from having seen and felt the bed yourself.



Provides a larger variety for your viewing pleasure and adds ease by being accessible wherever you may be. No one is pushing you with up sales or add-ons, just an abundance of reviews online as well as a complete product breakdown, which can be hard to find in-store. Most online sellers also provide you with a sleep trial to test the mattress for months before deciding if you want to keep it. Oh, shipping and returns are usually free.

We’re your Bed Buddy!!

Our mission is a simple one: We want to help you get incredible sleep, like a good sleep buddy should. And how you might ask? By not only conducting extensive research into the subject itself, but by personally testing out the thousands of mattresses on the market that claim to improve the quality of your slumber.

We really sleep on our mattress research by testing each for at least a hundred sleeps! We do not just compare features like review blogs, nor collate others’ online reviews, nor do a brief test of one to seven nights. No, our research includes a one hundred consecutive sleep test, so we can say, ‘Yup, this is what we found, because we really slept on it!’

We have no affiliation with the companies we feature, and any advertisements that appear on this website not at our discretion. They are there to keep the slumber party going. The Bed Buddy team takes incredible pride in the work we do. We hope that the reviews, news, and sleep information can help you on your personal journey for better sleep. And the job is fun – it’s not all naps! … sometimes… We love creating content that you enjoy, whether it’s on our site, or our newsletter, which you should sign up for.
