Adjustable Ultra Plush Mattress by Arizona Premium Mattress.. Opinions Please.... 16 Mar 2013 21:19 #11

Phoenix - thank you so much for this site, by far the most helpful I have seen on this topic. I have been shopping for and reading about mattresses for months and I have found better info in my perusing today than in all that time. I do have a question, I have been reading the sites of the companies in the Underground and the web sites for those stores you have posted in the Seattle area. The Arizona Premium Mattress co. is the one so far that I like the best. However, I am concerned about buying something without trying. Do you have any recommendations on reconciling this since it seems people do successfully order online? Thank you!

Adjustable Ultra Plush Mattress by Arizona Premium Mattress.. Opinions Please.... 16 Mar 2013 23:47 #12

Hi shh64,

This is an ongoing debate that is really a matter of personal preference and there is no "better or worse" answer. You can see some of the pros and cons of each in this thread and post #2 here and post #16 here are also about the same topic or "debate". More than anything though ... it really depends though on all the different factors that are part of each person's " personal value equation ".

The "value" of a mattress purchase includes many things. One of these is the "commodity value" of the materials in the mattress, one is the suitability of the mattress and the knowledge and experience of the manufacturer or retailer to guide you with this, one is the benefits, services and extras that come with the mattress, one is any options you have (or don't have) if you need to make any changes or exchanges after your purchase, and then there are any other tangible or intangible benefits that go with each choice that may be important to each person.

There is no doubt in my mind that personal testing is the most accurate way to choose a mattress and I would always start locally both to gain personal experience with different materials and combinations and to find the best "local" value. I would then compare them to any online options that are available to you. I tend to use a "local premium" in the range of about 20% or so to determine "equivalent value" but each person has a different risk tolerance and can use their own percentage.

Basically it boils down to the specific benefits of each choice (whether online or local), the amount of risk involved and the risk tolerance of each person, and which of the many tradeoffs involved in any mattress purchase are most important to each person.

Hi Phoenix,

Thank you for the thoughtful reply. I like the way you have framed it. I am going to try some beds locally and if I fall in love with one that is decently priced I will get it. If not, I will talk to the folks at APMC and try it. I am intrigued with the adjustable one they have. I'll let you know what I get and how it works.

Steve
