Sleepers had mixed things to say about these mattresses. There are reports from many folks of good initial comfort and happiness with their purchase, but there were others that didn't feel as positively. Read on about this brand more below!
A supportive mattress that properly cradles the body is what you need for a better night's sleep. If your mattress does a poor job supporting you, you are probably not getting the best night of sleep. Overall, these mattresses offer good support, but some have issues with lasting comfort.
Most will find these mattresses to be fine for edge support, which is good for those that like to sit on the side of the mattress. Some folks that have larger builds may still experience some dipping along the sides.
Having a mattress that is highly durable can save you thousands. Unfortunately, nowadays everything from what you wear to where you sleep degrades faster. Customers give mixed ratings when it comes to the longevity of these mattresses. Mattresses really affect people's bodies in different ways and some folks felt great about comfort long term, but others were not as sure. Make sure to read some of the customer reviews before purchasing.
There are some negative ratings from sleepers for these mattresses. Some report feeling comfortable in their mattress, but there are others that have complaints. One of these may work for you, but it makes it difficult to figure out. Read on below to learn more and to hear from customers to see if one will work for you.
A supportive mattress can mean the difference between a comfortable night sleep and pain. These mattresses do well supporting sleepers at first, but some had complaints about the support over the long term. It is really important to take a look at all of the reviews to make sure these fit your body type.
Many look for good edge support as a way to be comfortable getting in and out of bed. These mattresses provide okay edge support, but some sleepers may experience more dipping over time.
Bowling Ball & Density Tests
In mattress tests that measure the density of the mattresses, supportiveness for these mattresses is fairly even. However, there are some folks that have experienced issues with support over time.
We all want a mattress that is going to last over a decade, and when our mattress is instead something crummy that causes us pain after only a year, this is the worst. That said, it is much more difficult to find the right durable mattress nowadays. With more choices than ever, many companies are sacrificing quality to make a quick dollar. When it comes to these mattresses, some folks had issues with discomfort over a short period of time. Durability issues don't happen to everyone, but make sure to read more about the warranty and the return policies.
There aren't many companies I compliment because of the lack of service and professionalism. Innomax is, by far, one of the best in the business. If you're looking for great night sleep, have tried conventional beds and nothing works, go there. I've tried memory foam, air, conventional........nothing could close to their memory/waterbed . Nothing comes close! What would you pay for a good nights sleep? I didn't think it was possible but they did it. I put mine in my conventional frame and its as close to perfect as possible. The service was awesome and not pushy. Spend time there, they won't mind . They'll even feed you.View More Reviews
These guys are the best! If you need a new bed at the best price with no pressure sales... This is the place!! We have shopped online for a new waterbed set and come to find out here is the manufacturer for all these online stores here in Denver. Our salesman John Hannon was the easiest to work with. Set up and delivered.. These prices and customer service can't be beat! They also sell all your supply and linen needs. We are going to be returning for more goodies!! Thanks guys!!!
In no max is a place to buy a nice, quality bed. We bought our water bed mattress there 14 years ago and did not hesitate to go back when we were in the market for a replacement. The selection of mattresses is great and we decided on the king sized dual air, adjustable mattress. We also bought the MCINTOSH bedroom set with the king bed, dressers, mirror and two night stands. We are in love with the investment in our good night's sleep. The sales folks have been with the company for over a decade and while some reviews describe them negatively, they are super knowledgeable and if you can get passed the first few minutes of 'sales speak', and communicate what you want, you will find that the staff is interested in your experience and find a great bed! A little like buying a car, but as a consumer, we take responsibility for making sure we say 'yes' or 'no' to the things we do or don't want. The experience was good and we invested in a bedroom set that will last for 20+ years. It's lovely, comfortable, classic, heirloom, and excellent quality. Thank you, Innomax.
I recently travelled to a relatives house and was fearing the dreaded "extra bed." Much to my surprise, they had a memory foam mattress from Innomax. I was amazed at how firm, yet comforting the mattress was. I awoke after every night rested, relaxed and invigorated.
As soon as I returned to Denver and went to their showroom off of I-70 near I-25. This company takes sleep seriously. The selection of memory foam, modified water bed systems and impressive mattress setups was very impressive. It seems as if they incorporated NASA space technology into their mattresses creating an amazing bedding system.
I purchased the organic memory foam mattress and I have been sleeping better for weeks! I would strongly recommend anyone who needs a better nights sleep to go to Innomax and get the system that is going to be perfect for their sleeping style.
Went there with a friend of mine who is looking for a new bed. She had already been to several other bed stores but I'd heard about this from several of the people at 850KOA radio. I thought it would be a good experience.
I was wrong.
It was nice that they had food when we got there. Tasty and good. The location was not the easiest to get to, but Google Maps did a good job. There are quite a few beds to try out and a variety of different options. The furniture was nice too, if a bit pricey, but then, I usually shop at AFW.
NOW, the staff seemed quite friendly, but as we talked and walked and tried out beds, and she described the beds she'd liked at other stores, the sales rep began to simply bash the other beds and touted theirs. "Everyone else is terrible and we are the only good ones to ever exist" is the feeling we came away with. I can understand that you need to tout your own bed, but you don't need to do it by spewing disrespect toward your competitors.
To top it all off, the sales rep began to sound like a used car salesman. Lines began coming out like, "I can probably get you a SMOKIN' hot deal but only today." I was waiting for the, "I'll have to talk to my manager" line, figuring that this was a bed and not a used Camry she was looking at, and lo and behold, those EXACT words came out of his mouth.
We felt hugely pressured, and we got that slimy feeling you get after a particularly annoying visit to a local used car dealership hoping to push a substandard product on us by pressuring us to BUY NOW or the deal will be gone forever!
Now I don't know that the products offered are substandard or not, and I doubt they are, but the feeling we got as we were slinking away completely overrode our memories of any product detail we were given.
In my humble opinion, I would shop somewhere else, anywhere else but here.
We had an extremely disappointing and disconcerting experience. Initially, I gave them a 5 star rating based upon the mattress comfort. We purchased the memory gel with phase change thermal cell bed because it was advertised to have great lumbar support (I had an 8 level spinal fusion).The price was displayed at roughly $2,200.00, which they gladly would have sold it for, but we found it online for about $800.00. They begrudgingly honored the price as they advertise a 'price match' option.
The mattress was great for about three months, then it began to soften and develop pockets of laxity. We gave it ample time to see if rotating and a different topper may help the lack of support, but nothing worked. When we started contemplating the purchase of a new mattress (after a year for a bed with a 20 yr warranty, sigh) I decided to visit the store and discuss our options. Given the reviews from other customers, I feared such would be an unpleasant experience, and I was right. After some back and forth with the Regional Manager and his attempt to upsell us to a much more expensive mattress, we asked them to come look at ours as we felt it was defective. They came to our home the following day and determined the mattress had irregularities and we believed we'd get a replacement bed, we we needed ASAP! They said we had to wait until the following Wednesday. Wednesday came and went without the promised phone call. Our phone calls to the RM were ignored and not returned. So, at that time, I changed my review to a one star as I didn't want anyone else receiving the same unfair, poor, disappointing and unscrupulous treatment we had. It was after that, we had a conversation with the RM and he said "I actually had a positive outcome for you but now that you changed your review to one star, my hands are tied". In other words, us exercising our right to educate others resulted in them not honoring their warranty for a mattress they determined was defective. I wish the saga ended there, however, the situation turned even worse. I'd emailed the VP of the company asking for some help, and he contacted my company and made untrue allegations. Saying if I wanted to change my yelp review to a one star, then "GAME ON". How tragic that the VP of a company would try and get a customer fired because they were honest about how they were treated? All in all, a complete nightmare.
After over a year of dealing with severe lower back pain, I can honestly say that purchasing an Innomax mattress was the best decision I've made for my health! Tommy was helpful, patient, and steered me in the right direction to ensure I purchased the best mattress for my back. The customer service was excellent, the product-top of the line, and I am beyond happy with my purchase! I would absolutely recommend Innomax for anyone looking to invest in their health and comfortable sleep!
We were "pressured" into purchasing a very expensive mattress about three years ago. We have had to purchase memory foam toppers to be able to sleep on this terrible mattress. We should have done business with Denver Mattress because they offered a "satisfaction guaranteed" policy. We complained to Innomax but they were not inclined to work with us. Their attitude was "you bought it you own it." The mattress is called prodigy. If we had not paid
so much we would gladly haul this monster to the dump. It would be a shame to take up landfill space with this. Bottom line, be careful. We learned the hard way.
We met with Tommy. Still waiting for some kind of resolution.
No response from Tommy. Will never do business with Innomax again. Other mattress businesses offer a trial period. Innomax does not. It truly has a " you bought it you own it" policy.
I had a Select Comfort bed for 14 years that I absolutely loved. When the topper finally wore out, I discovered I could not find a replacement topper as they stopped making them. My husband and I really needed a different sleeping surface, but I could not stand the thought of giving up the Select Comfort....but the one I bought in 2001 was 7 grand, and there was just no way we could spend that on a bed. We went to Innomax and bought a very nice non-air mattress that was 3 grand. We spent about 45 minutes lying on this bed in different positions, and really loved the way it felt. Once we got it home and slept on it for several weeks, we discovered that our backs were hurting in the morning. We discussed different theories as to why that could be happening on such a great feeling bed but came up with no real answers. I contacted Mickey, our sales person, who asked if we would give it 3 weeks, and we agreed to. Still, back pain for us both. Disappointed and frustrated, we made an appointment to come back in and see Mickey, and he spent time discussing things with us and then sent us home with a nice, thick foam topper to try and see if we simply needed a thicker sleeping surface. We agreed to give it 3 more weeks. Still, back pain. With every single interaction with Mickey, he was genuine, professional and pleasant. Never ever any pushy, cheesy sales tactics. When I called Mickey this final time, he made an appointment for us to come in and see the manager (and him). This time, we laid on several beds for a very long time. We decided to go with the air mattress that Innomax makes. Innomax came to our house, took away our old mattress, brought the new one in, set it up, gave us directions, told us how to find support if we have questions once they left, put a fiber optic rose, several chocolate mints and a thank you card on the bed when they were done setting it up. The 2nd bed costs more than the first, but the manager made things right and didn't haggle over the extra cost. He clearly wanted to give us a good product and good customer service. We worked together with them to find a solution that we needed for peace of mind and a restful night's sleep. Innomax has been good to us. They have to eat the cost of those mattresses when they are returned, so they have to implement effective and compassionate problem-solving strategies with consumers, before just taking back a custom-made mattress. They stand by their promises,and although we were frustrated for weeks trying out different things, it was a reasonable request on their behalf. Once it was clear the 1st bed was not for us, it was replaced with expediency by the 2nd one.
We are happy with our bed, and would recommend Innomax to anyone!
Ugg, I think back on the sales experience when we bought this bed and I cringe. It was 4 years ago. The first salesman was pushy, but not terrible. When we said we needed some time to think about it, he brought over the "closer". I think she was called Sandy. And she was relentless. I asked about the "hump" in the middle of the air bed caused by the baffle between the air chambers. Her response: "sleep diagonal sometimes, get crazy!" I swear, she said that.
Somehow despite that, we were stupid enough to buy the air bed and I know there must have been high fives between the sales people when we left. The pump was loud, the firmness setting seemed completely arbitrary, and that hump... It was just never comfortable. The pump died a year ago and, since then, it's been like sleeping in side by side hammocks. My wife declared that we are getting a new bed today. And not from Innomax.
Btw, do they still use "laser technology" to see if your spine is aligned?? That was soooo ridiculous.
Price Match Saved Us being ripped of $986 from Innomax
End of Dec 2014 we went to the Denver Innomax showroom. Sandy was the 1st salesperson we spoke with, who started out her skit stating that Innomax does not advertise because they would be competing against themselves, as they're in over 1600 stores. At the time I didn't care as I was just there to look at their beds, but now I'm here to share with you why they don't advertise.
We ended up purchasing the Medallion Waterbed LS1000 and foundation. Cost $2,861. When we got home we did a google search for the bed to find out that buying from the Manufacturer directly in Denver were they're manufacturered these beds, as we did cost us $986 more than buying the exact same model from discountwaterbeds.com and heaters etc. from Ebay, with no tax, no shipping fee, and no having to deal with below par employees.
So why don't they advertise?? I would say so any dummy that walks in there can pay them a lot more than they sell to other distributors and retail stores for.
But don't worry they have a 30 day price match guarantee. Go ahead start holding your breath now... Sandy stated she was not getting our emails, guess she doesn't know about return receipt sent to sender each time the email is opened. Tommy the district manager out of Loveland will get right on it and take good care of you... keep holding your breath... He sent us back our same links to discountwaterbeds.com stating they were advertising the the wrong price and his figures were only $349 due back. Note, months later discountwaterbeds.com is still advertising that same great price.
Pays to bank with Wells Fargo who investigated and gave us our refund right away, charging it back to Innomax.
MORAL OF THE STORY: Skip the ripoff, google the bed of interest and Save yourself near a THOUSAND Dollars!
I've held out replacing my ancient mattress because I dreaded the sales hype of sleep showrooms. It is so much more fun to spend money on bed furnishings. Accent pillows! Italian sheets! And really, how much have beds changed in two decades?
Turns out, a lot has changed.
Fortunately a friend recommended Innomax in Colorado. The website is kind of dated, but the beds are not.
Like their name implies, the company is focused on innovation. Privately-held, Innomax's sleep experts are the brains behind many of the advances in sleep management found in the world's most popular (and expensive) mattresses.
I ordered a memory foam bed over the phone. Ordering was simple, and delivery was painless on our steep, private road. The mattress came shrink wrapped and was on my deck waiting for me after work. No need to sacrifice half a day waiting for a delivery truck. All we had to do was carry up our narrow stairs, cut the plastic off, and watch it expand.
The first week I didn't notice too much of a difference in my sleep, but sleep quality is hard to quantify. The second week, the results really started to show. I feel fantastic, and notice that the bed isn't torn up from tossing and turning.
I'm up now at 5:30 am for a morning jog, without setting the alarm. Something I haven't done in 15 years. I feel completely rested, and eager to get going. It is like turning back time.
Thank you Innomax for giving me my "bounce" back.
Great product, great customer service. I highly recommend InnoMax to all.
There warranty is only as good as their word. I bought a $1500 bed 5 years ago and the topper is supposed to be warranted for 20 years. It is in awful shape and they refuse to stand behind their product. So unhappy and disappointed.
We had a good experience buying our first king size bed at Innomax. Our salesperson was Daniel and he knew what he was talking about. We won't get our bed for another month, so no review on how we actually like the bed, but the purchasing experience was very pleasant.
I received excellent customer service from Mindi Wood. She was professional and answered our questions and got us the part we needed to fix not only one but two air beds! Great experience!
Its a big investment but so is our sleep quality. We decided to get a great nights rest by purchasing the Rick Lewis Innopedic adjustable smart base bed. we tested beds all weekend and it came down to Sleep Number and Innomax. Although They are both high end beds, Innomax bed came in first for sleep comfort and also they were able to beat out their competeter for about a 2,000 dollar difference also adding in the Chili pad that allows you to heat up to 115 degrees or down two 60 degrees. It can cool one side or both or heat both or one cold or hot, the massage feature is great too.... Better sleep and comfort here we come Thanks to Sandra Carbone and her Innomax team.
I will never sleep on a traditional inner spring mattress again. After being tired (no pun intended) of not getting quality sleep every night, I finally bought my own sleep system; I couldn't be happier! Goodbye restless nights, waking up throughout the night, and having a sore back in the morning. The sales staff were knowledgeable and helpful in my search for finding the right system for me. They offer delivery or the warehouse crew can help you load up your truck. I recommend Innomax to everyone I know. They have a customer for life. Thank you Innomax!
After an endless search on and off-line, I found InnoMax online, after a brief IM chat to confirm availability with Patty, a fabulous on-line representative, I requested a phone call to place an order. Scott in sales promptly called and asked all the right questions to place and ship my ODD order. InnoMax made my week, I cannot wait to sleep on my waterbed again. Thanks Guys.

My wife and I bought an InnoMax air mattress system from Sandy Carbone. It fit our present frame. We have slept on it 6 nights and neither one of us has woke up with back aches like we did before. Even after the first night. Sandy was very helpful when we went in to look at an air system bed. After looking at Sleep Numbers . In my opinion there is no comparison between InnoMax and Sleep Numbers. At InnoMax Sandy showed us the inside of the bed to show how and what it was made of, let us lay down on the mattress for a good half hour undisturbed and did not pressure us. It was a relaxing experience altogether. Now, so far we are satisfied.
We are now full-time retired RV travelers. Our coach has a air mattress king bed, after just a month on the road my wife’s side of the bed would not hold air. We called the manufactures rep Dave and he set up a air mattresses warranty replacement with INNOMAX. When we arrived we were received by 3 or 4 of the nicest people my wife and I have ever meet and did business with. Tommy and Sandy handle the exchange direct and Tommy repaired and upgraded the air pump, everyone we were in contact with couldn’t help us enough. Thanks and they will now be our MH bed replacement parts company...we will send all friends and relatives to this business... Again Thank You for the above and beyond service!!
I have had an air bed for over 13 years and replaced the motor 2 years ago. I have scoliosis and recently purchased a Temprapedic bed which I do not like as much as my air bed. The rubber hose rotted on the bed and the manufacturer has gone out of business. I was prepared to have to buy a new bed. I phoned Scott Chapin who called me back & discussed my concerns. He took the time to explain the differences in the hose connector on my current dual air art set and the Innoxmax system. It arrived Fedex and I am thrilled with the quality of the product. The advise the salesperson gave made assembly a snap! I am pleased to have preserved my original bed and am good to go for another 17 years. Sign me a very satisfied Internet customer!
I purchased an innomax complete bedroom set probably 20 years ago. I have moved two times since then. My last move, 6 years ago, I called Innomax... John and his partner from their delivery department came out disassembled my bedroom set and moved it for me to my new place and reassembled it. I was so happy! I'm getting ready to move again I called Innomax 2 weeks ago to find out how much it would cost to have the same thing done again. Disassemble my bedroom set move it set ...it up in the new place. Keep in mind I'm a single woman. I spoke to somebody on the phone a male, he said that John had retired but his partner was still working doing the same thing and that he could probably do it on a Wednesday or a Sunday. I was so excited! during the conversation he got sidetracked and was taking care of a few other things. When the conversation was coming to an end he said he would have the guy call me to give me a quote and let me know if he could move me or not.At the end of the conversation that said would you like my phone number so that the gentleman can call me back? The man on the phone said nope we don't need it... Which led me to believe they had caller ID and had my number. It's actually been probably more like 3 weeks now that I think about it and nobody has ever called me back! What a disappointment! Don't tell somebody you're going to do something and not follow through word-of-mouth is a very powerful thing!!! and here I was getting ready to buy a whole new bedroom set and new bed from this company. yeah that is not happening at all because I don't know what would get delivered. Innomax.. DEFINITELY NOT 5 STARS IN CUSTOMER SERVICE IN MY EYES ANYMORE!!!
I purchsed a waterbed heater from one of their online dealers (WaterbedBargins dot com) It was just over two years old and it quit working. Online it says 5 year limited warranty. I tried for months to contact the company, even going through the BBB with no response. Even the BBB said sorry but if they don't respond all we can do is note it and warn others. Then I got a hold of InnoMax . They said sure we can replace, for a pro-rated cost of $55. I originally only spent $69... for the heater. When I said that's not much of a warranty the guy (Mike from InnoMax) laugh at me and said "Well you know we're not talking about warranty on a car worth much more. We're only talking about a $50 item here". Really? So apparently if your not spending a butt load of money with this company they really don't care about you. Go somehwere else and spend your money where they actually care about their product sales and they actually warranty it. For all the hassle I've had just trying to get this taken care of, it's not worth it.
Bought a waterbed heater just over a year ago. It has already stopped working (it may have stopped sooner but it was summer, so heater not on much). Cant reach customer service, website warranty submission crashes and I can't sleep in my bed until I get a working heater installed.
About 2 weks ago innomax came out to take down my waterbed the 2 young kids were fast 45 minutes to take it down they were so kind and courtious and fast yesterday they came back. To put my bed together half hour to but it together a little long to fill the bed thank you for the fast courtious and kindness to the young men that did this for me I am extreamily happy with inomax and its emplloyees keep up the wonderful work and being the best waterrbed store in denver sincerely rosallind.

After months of sever back pain, we decided it was time to look for a new bed! We visited this store and now have a wonderful King size bed and couldn’t be any happier. Thank you so much, Sandy and Innomax, for the great customer service and for helping us have a great night’s sleep and less back pain!
Just had the best two nights of sleep! Bought the perfection dual king, and love it. I spent 3000.00 on the last bed, I -comfort latex cooling memory foam etc, etc, and couldn't wait to part with it! Not even 1.5 years old. Can't wait to go to bed!!
Bought the top of the line king waveless soft side mattress five years ago. The zipper mechanism for the mattress pad that also holds the mattress rails in place literally fell apart in my hands recently. Now the rails are not held in place properly and the bed is very uncomfortable. I was told it would be $800 just to replace just the mattress cover!! I am stationed in Germany and have no other options other than to scrap this bed. Never again.
My husband and I have been looking at getting a waterbed for his shoulder pain. Sandy had shown us beds they had in the showroom. We tried them out and we were sold! The bed felt fantastic! Sandy was very knowledgeable about the beds and sleeping patterns. We got a great bed for a great price. In a few weeks we will post how the bed is doing. I have a feeling it will really help with the back and shoulder pain. Thank you InnoMax!
Horrible! I purchased a queen mattress and it failed within five days! It sprung a leak and they refused to refund my money. Not only that but they were rude and didn't want to answer my questions. They only wanted to attempt to sell me more items - a pump to drain the mattress they sold me with a leak. Come to find out they had sold me a mattress that had a hole it they previously patched! Not an honesty company or one I would recommend doing business with. Take your money elsewhere!
Very pleasant experience. Great quality for a great price. Scott took very good care of us.
I have bought 1 set of the air mattresses here and love my bed. I bought my granddaughter her be and matresses here and she loves them. Thank you so much for the great service also.
Had an issue with a mattress we purchased 2 years ago, InnoMax honored our warranty and replaced our mattress. Thank you!
3500 bed has a dent in it after only a year and a half. No wonder their salespeople are so great, they have to be. Disappointed.
Good quality and good price. Bought our bed there. Comfortable.
I bought a water heater for water bed it broke after 29 months product guaranteed for 5 years two first full year after 65 percent for the rest not at all satisfied with the service
We purchased an Innomax waterbed system in February, 2019 from a local dealer for over $2200. The bed was installed by the dealer. No information for maintenance was included or warranty. We didn't even know the brand name until an issue occurred. We had mattress protectors to keep the mattress clean. Unfortunately, one of our cats had an accident in an unprotected area requiring laundering. I checked the Innomax website for laundry instructions and there were none. Being a Memorial Day long weekend, there was no one at Innomax to help. I pre-spotted the area and used a cold water wash to clean. The top came out in a shriveled mass! I air dried it but the mass remained. I filled out a claim for on their website and got an email offering a replacement top for $368 plus shipping! I spoke with Dave Chandler at Innomax to question their lack of information on how to launder and he acknowledged that "spot cleaning" was recommended. Really, did he not think we would NOT try to clean a mattress top after a period of time? He said they NEVER had this type of issue before. I asked that he recommend cleaning information be added to the website, tagged on the mattress top and included in consumer information. The mattress is OK but the customer service is not. I hope this helps others who launder bedding.
Very grateful for Candid Reviewer's advice. We were interested in the C2 after seeing the excellent rating it received from Consumer Reports, with high marks for durability, side and back sleeping. We went to the sleep number store, stuck to our plan and avoided being up- sold, and bought (on Amazon) both the recommended fiber topper and a gel topper to experiment with once the C2 arrives. We also are using our old metal frame with a queen-size bunkie board ($69), for a nice savings compared to the $300 foundation from sleep number. More $ for new sheets and bedding!View More Reviews
3.5 stars if I could. Last November, we got the Sleep number C2 due in part to the top review here.
This is my 8th mattress/mattress adjustment in 6 years. We upgraded from my 20 year old twin sized mattress and until now we have been plagued with back problems. The sleep number has been great for good night sleeps and no back problems anymore. My Sleep #35, wife's #30
Why the 3 stars then....
Overly glorified air mattress. Our 5th mattress was an $80 air mattress with a built in pump. I freaking loved that thing but the wife not so much. The sleep number is no different. The problem lies in the bladders. There are two independent bladders so two different firmness can be achieved. The split, there is a very noticeable casm between my wife and I if go to close to her I roll down. If I'm not centered have a tendency to bottom out do to air shifting. That said the bladders are to thin and I bottom out with my side set to a 50. I prefer to sleep on a 35-40 but for lying in bed with my head up I need to adjust the bed higher so my arse isn't on the hard plastic lower mattress. Speaking of lower mattress, this thing is composed of about 12 hard plastic rails that are aprox 4"-6" high. I've got my bed on my old box spring and it slides all over causing me to jam a falling out rail back in every week or so.
Cuddlings a pain with the grand casm to work around. Sex must be planed so the bladders can be at 100 each.
All that said the C2 is a good mattress but I have made some improvements to make it a great mattress: 3" gel topper and a 3" down quilted topper under the bladder mattress to lessen the bottoming out. I'm eventually going to build bed frame for proper height, box spring containment, and support for sides of the bladders.
The sleep numbers best quality is it offers options it's short comings are easily fixed and it's way eaiser to move than normal mattress set.
Best bed I ever had. I'm a big person 300 Plus pounds...At year 10 the pump went out and I called...they still had my info and sold me a new pump at 1/2 price. It's went through 2 moves and is still great! My husband is also big so it stands up to heavy folks. Folks on the phone were friendly and helpful. I'm looking now to buy my son one.
We decided to try a sleep number bed based on the other reviews here, and the fact that I haven't been able to sleep for more than 4-5 hours at a time and waking up feeling like I had been run over by a truck. I am by nature a skeptic, not wanting to believe ads and doing my own research is much more important than just taking some ad at it's face value.
We have had the bed for a little over a week now and I can say that I'm up to about 6.5 hours of sleep. We are still adjusting to the concept of setting the number to one that is most comfortable. I'm a 65 and the wife is at 75. Time will tell. Overall, the bed went together nicely, wish some of the zippers were better in quality and it does take some getting used to the foam boarders. They sit a bit higher than the mattress so you can definitely feel the edges. Having said that, I sincerely hope that this will be a long term solution for us.
I did make a YouTube Video of the unbox of the mattress that provides some insight into what it takes to set up this mattress.
My wife and I purchased a sleep number bed, a 5000 Queen Set, Dual, Ptop, Wireless in 2006. The bed was installed by the company's installers and has not been moved since that time. My wife and I are the only one who have ever slept on the bed. We do not have children and so no child has ever jumped on the bed.
About a year ago we noticed that the sides of the bed were pushing out and there was a depression on both sides where he lay when sleeping. Even with full pressure this did not go away. This kept getting worse so we called Customer Support.
The first person we called told us that we should have put a piece of plywood under the mattress to increase support and if we had done so we would not be having problems. However, neither any of the instructions nor the installers said anything about the bed needing extra support.
When we called back to order the almost $400.00 repair parts this person said she did not know anything about needing plywood support and there was no written indication about this on the previous person's phone call. It seemed the lady was suggesting my wife was lying. I can only conclude that the other person should not have inform us about this design flaw.
Also read the warranty information carefully. I did not. After 7 years I am responsible for over 44% of the cost of the repairs.
I will say these beds are very comfortable and you will enjoy the comfort they afford. However, do not believe that they will last for 20 years. Mine lasted for 6 years. If you have young children who like to play on the bed keep them off this bed!
This is for the C2 select comfort bed.
There are many mixed reviews about these beds and they are basically very expensive for an air mattress with very cheap and thin padding between the cover and air mattress. My biggest problem with the bed is that it has very little adjustment. While the numbers go from 0 to 100 they are in increments of 5 so there isn't as much adjustment as there would appear to be (intentional deception?). I'm kind of stuck in the middle so that if I make the bed soft enough I wake up with back pain, when hard enough to not have back pain I toss and turn all night. I wish I had not purchased this bed since I cannot find a good sleep position and will purchase another mattress. If you do buy it decide quickly if you can adjust it for your comfort level. I kept thinking I could get the adjustment right and let the return period expire. Also, returns are expensive and difficult.
Great bed but..... they should call it build a bed. Sleep Number has an odd business model and they want to charge you for all kinds of silly extras.
The key to buying this bed is wait for a sale and only buy the bed no extras as other reviews state here.
The good : The bed is adjustable and you quickly find the right amount of air firmness you need. The mattress is super light so making the bed is a breeze.
The Bad :sleep number charges insane amount for the base get a good piece of plywood, the sleep number base is plastic don't pay for delivery or legs for the base.
The bed feels as others stated like a camping mattress what made the bed great for us is a 2 inch gel memory foam the bed went from bad to a great night sleep, So lets call this a build a bed start with the base model customize it yourself.
After having the bed for the past 10 years, I have had the bed pillow top replaced 2 times because of mold issues. I called the warranty again because the pillow top is coming apart after 4 years and they say i have to pay 60% for a new replacement. This is crazy. Went to buy by Sterns and Foster and they have a full replacement on their beds if they come apart..wow a much better bed then the Sleep by number.
I purchased a C2 bed and slept on it for a week, and each night woke up with back pain. It is honestly the worst mattress I have ever slept on. I started sleeping on the floor because it was more comfortable. The materials are not worth $1,200, they are probably making over 300% profit margins because the cost couldn't be more than $300 for the whole bed. The side walls and chambers do not meet together well, so there are dips all throughout the bed. A pillow top or cushion could not cover up the unevenness of the bed.
BUYER BEWARE: They will not refund you the $90 shipping it cost to UPS your bed to your house, and they will charge you another $90 for labels to return the bed via UPS
My wife and I did extensive research before purchasing a Sleep Number bed, and we were surprised by much of what we learned. I want to share some of that information now, then I'll return periodically to report on how well we're sleeping.
WHY A SLEEP NUMBER BED
There are two main reasons to buy a Sleep Number bed: (1) so you can change the firmness of your mattress to suit your preferences, which may change over time, such as during pregnancy or while recovering from a back injury; and (2) so you can have a different level of firmness on each side of the same mattress to accommodate two sleepers with very different comfort preferences. If you don't care about either of those benefits, there's no reason to buy a Sleep Number bed that wouldn't be just as well served by other, cheaper options, such as a spring mattress.
WHAT TO KNOW BEFORE YOU BUY A SLEEP NUMBER BED
All Sleep Number beds use the same quality of pump and air bladder (the size of the bladders may vary, but it makes no difference to comfort). The taller air bladders or "upgraded" layers of padding are not necessarily desirable. In fact, customer reviews are consistently highest for the most basic model, the C2, which gives you the most "bang for your buck" and seems to produce far fewer complaints than their higher-end models.
A Sleep Number bed essentially is a glorified air mattress. The benefit of an air mattress (versus springs or memory foam) is that you can adjust the firmness of the bed from 0 to 100. In practice, this means the bed adjusts from uncomfortably soft (to the point of sinking into it like a hammock) to uncomfortably firm (like laying on a board). Most people will prefer a sleep number somewhere between 30 to 60. Presently, my wife's "sleep number" is a very soft 35, while mine is a fairly firm 60.
You only need the MATTRESS (which includes the air bladders and pump). The Sleep Number box frame is overpriced and not required. Any appropriately-sized box frame will work. The Sleep Number salesperson will likely warn you that traditional wooden box frames tend to expand and contract as the temperature and humidity change, but their "special" polymer box frame won't. Ignore the sales pitch. You don't need it as long as you have a solid, flat foundation for the mattress. We used the box frame from our previous bed, and it works great.
Do NOT buy a "high-end" Sleep Number bed. Customers appear to be consistently and significantly LESS SATISFIED (long-term) with Sleep Number's upgraded models. Search the Internet, and you'll see a distinct pattern in customer reviews: The simpler the model (C2 is the most basic), the happier the customer (on average). The upgraded models also seem unjustifiably overpriced. For instance, in the C3, Sleep Number merely adds a little foam padding and a slightly taller air bladder, but the price jumps by $300 or more! (You could buy a thicker mattress topper of better quality foam for half that price or less.) In short, the most cost-effective (and frankly, most comfortable) choice is to buy the basic C2 model, then purchase a 1" to 3" thick, high-quality memory foam topper from another supplier. You'll spend less money AND sleep better! One caveat: Don't overdo it on the thickness of the memory foam toppper. A topper about 2" thick is plenty to add a touch of luxurious softness, while the C2 mattress provides you with a highly-adjustable firmness level. Thicker toppers have a greater tendency to sink in and sag (a frequent complaint about memory foam after extended use), and thus, can negate the benefits of buying a firmness-adjustable air bed in the first place!
A queen-sized C2 Sleep Number mattress with dual bladders (so each "half" of the bed can be set to a different firmness) costs about $700.00, and the Sleep Number mattress protector (which adds a 10-year warranty) costs another $200. After tax, you're looking at around $1,000 for an air mattress with a warranty that, by many reports from other customers, may not actually be backed by the manufacturer. Nonetheless, having had TWO very disappointing experiences with two different high-end memory foam beds (each in the $1,000 price range), my wife and I decided to give the C2 a try. We will be satisfied with our purchase if our bed stays inflated for at least a decade, and adjusts in firmness when we need it to. Only time will tell.
WHAT TO KNOW WHEN YOU BUY YOUR SLEEP NUMBER BED -- DELIVERY/SHIPPING
When you buy a Sleep Number bed, you can pay approximately $160 for delivery and setup, or you can pay about $90 for UPS delivery. Unless you're physically challenged or disabled, I'd save money by opting for the UPS delivery. The bed is easy to set up yourself. It arrives nicely packed in a relatively small box with clear instructions. To save even more money, wait for a promotion period when Sleep Number offers free shipping, and then make your purchase. That's how my wife and I escaped paying any setup/delivery costs.
WHEN YOUR SLEEP NUMBER BED ARRIVES
When your Sleep Number bed arrives (assuming you didn't pay for setup), it is easy to assemble. You lay out the mattress cover on a box frame, unzip the top, insert foam stiffeners around the perimeter of the bed, drop in the air bladders, attach the air pump, inflate the bladders, and zip the top of the mattress back on. Done! It only took me about 30 minutes to set up a dual bladder Queen-size bed, and at least half of that time was spent waiting for the bladders to inflate (the initial inflation is slow).
On the first two nights of sleeping on our bed, we tried an old, 4" thick memory foam topper that we had stored in the closet for the past five years. As expected, the 4" of foam was TOO thick and allowed my spine to sag. Even with the C2 mattress itself set to a moderately firm 50 on the first night, and a very firm 70 on the second night, I woke up both mornings with a lot of back pain due to the sinking effect of the (thick) topper. I also sweated a lot both nights because memory foam runs very warm and doesn't breathe well. My wife had no complaints about the mattress itself (she chose a much softer sleep number of 35), but she also sweated and felt uncomfortably hot due to the memory foam topper. We reminded ourselves that we bought this bed to get away from our disappointments with memory foam, so the topper went back into the closet.
On the third and fourth night, we slept with no topper at all (only the C2 mattress and the very thinly padded mattress protection cover we purchased). Initial comfort wasn't great (it doesn't feel "soft as a cloud" because you feel the air bladder pressing smoothly but stiffly against you through the padding). However, the level of back support and sleep-through-the-night comfort were both dramatically better. I woke up with almost no back pain. That confirms the C2 mattress's ability to fulfill the firmness and support needs that we couldn't get from our two previous, high-end memory foam mattresses. Now the task is to find an appropriate topper to add that extra touch of initial softness against our backs.
After a lot of research into memory foam alternatives, we settled on the Downlite Extra Plush Bamboo Top Mattress Pad (sold here on Amazon). Once we've received it and slept on it a few nights, I'll write a separate review for that product, as well as return here to report the overall results on our happiness with the C2 mattress. Stay tuned...
[UPDATE 7-19-2013: After three weeks on this bed, we're definitely sleeping much better. The first week was a bit rough as we adjusted to the new feel of an air bed, but the last two weeks have been great. The C2 mattress, combined with a Downlite Extra Plush Bamboo Top Mattress Pad, is substantially more supportive than the memory foam mattresses we used previously. Although the initial comfort doesn't feel quite as luxuriously soft when you first lay down on the bed, our actual through-the-night sleeping comfort is outstanding. My sleep number has hovered around a (firm) 65, while my wife continues to prefer her much softer 35. We both agree the Downlite topper made the bed feel substantially better since it is just thick enough to prevent us from feeling the air bladders in the C2 bed.
I also noticed that the Downlite topper feels firmer and more supportive than the upgraded beds we tried out in the Sleep Number store, reinforcing my suspicion that higher-end Sleep Number beds use layers of memory foam which probably sink in over time and cause back pain like we experienced with our previous memory foam beds. That probably accounts for why the higher-end Sleep Number beds are reviewed much more negatively than the basic C2 mattress. If you can give up the pleasure of that initial cozy feeling you get from memory foam, the C2 mattress and Downlite topper are a great combination that will give much better (and adjustable) sleep-through-the-night comfort and support for those who suffer from chronic back pain. So far, we're quite pleased.]
[UPDATE 9/10/2013: After two full months sleeping on the C2 Sleep Number bed and our Downlite topper, I am THRILLED with the improvements in my neck and back pain--which have essentially disappeared. Each time I lie down on the bed, I'm still aware that the initial "cushy" softness of the memory foam is missing, but after lying down for a few seconds, that observation immediately gives way to a pleasant impression of how firm and supportive the bed feels against my back. After two months, that same initial impression continues to replay in my mind when I go to bed each night.
More importantly, I can now attest with full confidence that the C2 mattress and Downlite topper combination alleviates ALL of the neck and back pain issues I was experiencing with the memory foam mattresses and toppers we have previously slept on. In two months, I haven't had ANY serious problems with pain--and that's a remarkable change from the almost daily pain I was experiencing before.
More impressively, a week ago, I strained my back badly when I slipped while raising a sailboat mast and strained to catch the mast before it slammed down onto the concrete. The last time that (same incident) happened, I couldn't move out of my bed for two full days and I suffered excruciating lower back pain for three weeks before I recovered full mobility. This time, although the pain and strain felt nearly as bad as last time, I was able to get on my feet the next morning and now, a week later, although my back is still tender, I'm recovering exponentially faster than before with near-full mobility and can again lift modest amounts of weight (like my one-year-old daughter) comfortably. The only possible explanation is that this bed is so supportive, it is accelerating my recovery. I now realize now that the last time I injured my back, the memory foam topper we had at that time was probably exacerbating the strain at night, stretching out my pain and debilitation unnecessarily.
Suffice it to say that I am well pleased with the Downlite topper and our C2 Sleep Number mattress. My wife--who is now pregnant--has remarked a few times that she misses the cushy softness of the memory foam a lot, but even she (with her much better back) agrees that this bed's supportiveness is still much better and gives her better "through-the-night" sleep comfort. She just likes her bed to be very soft feeling, and this topper just isn't as initially soft as a more foam-like material would be.]
[UPDATE 3-11-2014: Well, my wife just completed her pregnancy with our third child and she has said repeatedly throughout the last trimester that she was glad to have an adjustable bed. So far, we've had no air leaks, no signs of premature wear, nor any other complaints. We continue to get good support and comfort from this bed. My wife still occasionally mentions her desire to put a one-inch memory foam topper under the Downlite topper just to increase the initial softness a little, but it's such a small issue, she hasn't really gotten around to it yet. We're plenty comfortable. I can definitely say now that the approximately $1000 investment in this bed was well worth it. We're glad we bought it, and continue to find the adjustment feature useful whenever I have a strained back or my wife's body is changing as it does through a pregnancy and thereafter.]
[UPDATE 12-28-2015: Well, years later and this bed is still holding up great -- with no evident signs of wear, despite three little girls who occasionally jump on it (though we tell them not to) -- and still giving us sleep-through-the-night comfort. Every three months or so, it seems we have to readjust the bed: deflating it down to its lowest setting (20, I think), then inflating it up to its highest setting (100), and then dialing it back down to our preferred sleep number (mine is 55 or 60). This seems to recalibrate the bed's pressure gauge. If we don't do it, we notice that after a few months our sleep number starts to feel "softer" than it is supposed to... as if the bed has let out a little air and/or fallen out of calibration. It takes so long for this to happen that I don't think it can be attributed to a leak (the bed never goes flat!). It just seems to be a quirk that is easily resolved using the recalibration method I described.
Also, having slept on this bed through several more hot seasons, I will say it again: we sleep much cooler on hot Georgia nights than we ever did on memory foam! Overall, we're very pleased with this bed. It's not dreamy soft, but it is comfortable and supportive.]
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 7 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.
We are on our second Sleep Number bed, going with the adjustable bed this time to help alleviate sinus problems, and had we not loved our older Sleep Number we would have looked elsewhere. All was great for almost 2 years, then for the past few weeks the remotes started to loose their connection to the bed and its associated systems (air-inflation system, adjustable base, dual temperature heaters). Every night I have to re-pair the remotes to the bed, and this is getting old quick. Sleep Number's customer service was absolutely no help, they walked me though the pairing process (I think I can do it in my sleep now), and claimed success … if only they had listened they would know it always works, for a few hours, then the remotes loose their connections again. I hear folks have great luck and bad luck with Sleep Number's customer service, I guess I will just have to start calling each night and having them walk me though the re-pairing process until I get one of the good service techs.
Sleep Number beds are pretty good BUT... there are 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.
Scheduled delivery day was scheduled for a Friday. 30 minutes before delivery was contacted and said would not deliver because of large amount of rain during the night. Delivery company wanted to deliver the following week. I offered next day, but was declined. All around poor customer service. The Sleep Number stores were open and all other furniture stores . Other stores willing to deliver same day.
If I could give a 0 star review, I would. The bed we received was not the bed we tried in the store. When we received our bed, it started to sag in the middle after less than a week. I had a migraine headache every day I slept on this bed either from something it's made of or the way I was forced to sleep on it. I called to return it and they wanted to sell me "accessories" to make it sleepable. A bed this expensive should just work. I am now having to pay $499 to have the bed and the base returned. This is excessive. The bed is crap and the company is a scam with bait and switch. Do yourself a favor and get something else.
I replaced my original Sleep Number bed 3 years ago with the P6 mattress after replacing the foam layer and the air pump. I regret that decision. The mattress covers do not hold their shape and the foam layer that lies over the mattress air bladders can and does split where the two bladders meet. The air pump on my original bed failed and had to be replaced. The P6 is only 3 years old and the mattress cover has stretched as badly as the 10+ year old mattress cover did. I was offered a new mattress cover at a prorated discount of almost 300 dollars. Be aware...it feels great until.....
My king sized Sleep Number 360 i8 sunk in the middle within a year of purchase. I contacted Sleep Number. First they sent me a 1 inch thick plain piece of foam the size of the whole mattress. I followed the instructions on how to use it, Useless. Then they shipped the whole big foam thing. Again we followed the instructions (quite a pain) and it was better for about 3 months. Then it sunk in the middle again! We are less than 2 years into this bed purchase; and for $3,000+ and two replacement parts, I have a useless bed. Sleep Number spends all their money on marketing and pretty stores and then designs and builds and sells shoddy products. The bed was TERRIBLE! I have asked them to resolve it by refunding me. Of course, I get the party line that it's past the 100-day mark for replacement. I guess this is a $3,00 hard learned lesson. Don't make the same mistake!!
I purchased an i8 after trying it out in the store along with the highly recommended mattress pad. We receive the bed and immediately it doesn't feel like the same bed in the store. You can feel the lump of air underneath you and it was curved upwards for the highest setting which wasn't comfortable at all. The first night we woke up in the morning and the "cooling" mattress pad was so hot we both sweaty. I had to take it off and exchange it (couldn't return it since it had been used) which was a $219 disappointment. After trying to make it work for a month, we gave up and sent the bed back also. It cost $249 to send it back because we were outside of their delivery zone, so after over $500 in delivery fees alone, it was an expensive lesson, but we couldn't keep an overpriced air mattress. Be smart, don't do it!!!!
extremely unhappy with the comfort of the mattress, but even more so with all the unnecessary fees they add even to return the product....... $400 in delivery charges. That's ridiculous!!!!!
Paid almost $6,000.00 for this i10 bed, after less than 2 years the bed started dramatically sagging the same way our 10 plus year old innerspring pillow top mattress had. I lived with it thinking the air chambers would some how take care of the problem and that it was a normal thing. Unfortunately living with it this way for almost 3 years has me tossing it out, I can't sleep! I toss and turn, no matter the pressure setting I constantly toss and turn at night. I called to find out about warranty and was told I would need to spend almost $400.00 on new foam. No way am i going to spend another dime on this garbage, just purchased a new Avocado mattress with a pillow top. Half the price and 10 times better warranty, sleep number is a rip off.
Do not do business with this company unless you plan to keep your "bed" forever. If you need to return the bed, they will screw you royally and treat you like dirt to boot. This is the absolute worst company with which I have ever dealt in my entire life. They creep right up to the line of committing fraud with their entire business model. Their business practices need to be investigated by government officials, and I will advocate for this at every level of government -- local, state, and federal.
Our issue may not directly relate to newer beds since we have had ours for over 8 years. However, my husband was never happy with this bed until we decided to dismantle it. We found that the top layer of foam was cheap eggshell type foam that had torn in the middle. When we removed the foam and replaced it with a quality foam, my husband and I were amazed and happy with the results. He is comfortable and getting up without backaches for the first time since we bought it. I am also not experiencing the hip pain that I had for over a year.
IF not your customer service experience will be horrible. For one, the adjustable base is not returnable. Secondly, returning a high end bed like the ILE we bought for something like a i6 will be a wash financially. Lucky for us our final purchase was over the phone so we did not sign anything that would have prevented us from returning the whole bed. Two weeks on from returning the bed we still have not received our refund. When we called a week ago, the CS person said the claim had to be manually submitted (why did it take the customer calling to initiate soemthing) Every person from the guys that picked up the bed to the two CS people I have spoken to the last 8 days has given a different line of BS on when to expect the refund. I work at a bank and know that it only takes a few presses of a button and you get a credit card refund within 2-3 days tops. Absolutely horrible customer service so please make sure the bed is 110% right for you.
If I sat up in bed put back against wall bed slid off end of bed when I called about it hey said they were aware but offered no help. Never warned me of issue here itt is 10yrs latter I am soo exhausted positioning mattress all day long exhausted Feel like I’ve been working or sleep nuunnnmbeer for free all these years.

They have made large real years very painfull having to get up & fdpsttiiioning bed and I’m alone have no help me to move mattress spent a lot trying find way to fix it. I cannot recommend a company that refuses to speak to an unhappy customer they say transfer me to someone then call goes dead hndrescalls unanswered or ddisconncted
It is a rip off. We have had the bed for 90 days and not happy at all. You can play with the settings forever and never find the right position of firmness. Not a good night sleep. Then try to return it and your nightmare begins. I relied on what the sales person told us or did not tell us. The flex frame $2000 is not returnable. Yes it is in the fine print of the brochure but the sales person never said it, He was just anxious to make the sale. Definitely not worth the money, there are so many better and less expensive choices
We have had a Sleep Number bed for 10 years. In 2018 we decided to update our mattress. That was a mistake. There was nothing wrong with my older mattress we just wanted to upgrade to the adjustable bed. The old bed I could easily take part my self when we needed to move, (military). This new bed had to have someone delivery it and set it up, another $200 charge. I hate the magnets that are underneath to hold the beds in place when you adjust the bed. They are too strong and one of them has actually ripped out of the mattress part itself. I called to have it replaced and they wanted to charge another $99 to have someone come put a new cover on the bed. I told them that wasn't going to happen. I was told that because of the magnets they had to do it. I am perfectly capable of doing the work myself. Told them to take the magnets off and I will do it myself. I just find it very frustration and suspicious that I now have to pay someone every time something is wrong with the bed. I had an I8 and the new one I purchased was also the I8. The difference in the quality decline surprised me. The old mattress was definitely better. Why didn't I return it? Well I was hopping I would get use to it, but a year later I still hate it, if I change now it will cost me more money and I already paid $8500 for this set. Why don't I go back to my old mattress? Well I would if I hadn't already given it to my daughter. My old bed was sleeping on a cloud and I can say it was the best sleep we had, made all our back problems go away. This new bed hasn't done that. I will never purchase another sleep number bed.
I bought a Sleep Number bed because I am suffering from bone cancer and needed something that would help to relieve pain. It wasnt until the end of the purchasing process that I learned it would take two weeks to deliver it. When it came, the base was defective and they took it back and rescheduled a delivery for another two weeks. Afer a great deal of protest they agreed to a one week delay for one that, hopefully, will not be defective. This bed cost more than $4,000 and I can find no excuse for their lack of quality control or ability to resolve the problem more quickly. Had I known this, I would have compared the bed to competitors. The bed may be fine, but I don't know yet.
We bought a sleep number bed thinking we would be able to control our sides to make it comfortable for two people to sleep. It’s fine for hardness and softness of each side of the mattress but my husband can’t sleep unless the head is elevated and I can’t sleep with it elevated and wake up with a backache with the head elevated. Why couldn’t you put a control on both sides of the bed? It’s a rip off that we would have to buy king size bed to get that feature because a king size bed would not fit in our room. Why don’t you tell buyers that so people know? Do not start off your answer with me with the word “unfortunately”. Sincerely, Lesa Uhlenhaker
Wow their marketing and fancy stores really baited us into buying. Spent $3k on a King and accessories. Could not believe how cheap the materials were upon delivery. This is basically a blow up mattress that you could get at any camping place, with 3 inches of a foam topper. The blow up is rested inside of a very cheap foam frame and sits atop a base with a small fan motor in it. There can't be more than $200 of material cost here. I literally could go to WalMart - get a king blow up by Intex for $50 and add a $79 3" thick gel infused mattress topper and then let the air in or out for comfort. This company is really a sham!! Also, watch it when you go to get out of the bed! Since the sides / frame are thin foam just enough to hold the air mattress in place, it will collapse on you as soon as you swing your legs around to get out. Husband and I have fallen off the bed numerous times when getting out. Last, for one final insult, they will charge you $199.00 to come pick it up when you try to return it with a 10-day window to come out!! RUN !! Don't be sucked into their marketing hype, these products are very low quality. You're paying for their marketing costs, very fancy stores, and commissions of the people inside.
Purchased bed 3 years ago, the men who delivered the king size bed, were in a big hurry and only stayed about 5 minutes because they were behind schedule. Not our problem. the bed was a disappointing from the beginning, Finally when sides were falling out and I literally fell out of the bed to the floor, we called customer service and were told they would for over 100.00 they could send us the replacement pieces and someone would come to put them in since we are both over 75 and handicapped. two very nice gentlemen came and inspected the bed and replaced the one side that had been sent. upon examination by them they said the other side was defective and needed to be replaced. Also when they lifted up the mattress they said the frame only had three roller balls and should have six. they contacted Sleep Number while here and were told we would be shipped items to further make the bed usable and would be receiving a call from Sleep Number in 24 hours.That never happened. After a few days I called Sleep Number and talked to a woman who said she could help but I would have to pay a fee.I told her I felt the bed was defective. She became very belligerent and said she would keep the order for a few days. The bed has now fallen down on side the the rollers were missing and is unusable. So, today we went to a mattress store and spent 7500.00 for a real bed that is unconditionally guaranteed. Habitat for Humanity is coming to pick and try to repair Sleep Number bed. Ironically, while we were in mattress store another couple were in to replace their Sleep Number Bed they had had for about 3 years. Highly recommend if you are in market for a good mattress shop, look closely at warranty, and check out other beds than Sleep Number.
Disappointed with the quality of products, limited warranty, and excessive cost for prorated warranty parts. I purchased your product for my daughter's bed and I couldn't be more disappointed. After only three years the pump has malfunctioned. I paid an exorbitant cost for your product partly because I thought I was buying a quality product that came with a 25 year warranty. To my disappointment the warranty is structured in such a way that it is misleading and obviously so limited because your products must have a high failure rate. I haven't lodged a product compliant in many years but I will tell you that the shock of your ridiculously priced replacement parts and lack of meaningful warrant has quickly turned me against your product and I am anxious to share my thoughts and product review with any potential customer I reach.
I bought the ILE mattress over the Labor Day sale. This mattress is absolute garbage! I tried sleep number settings from 35 to 70 and could NOT find anything comfortable where I could sleep on my side. This is nothing but an overpriced air mattress. BEWARE...they will charge you $200 to return a mattress after their "free" in-home trial period! This is on top of a $200 delivery fee! Absolute garbage customer service! And read the fine print about their "25 year" warranty, too. It's a 2 year warranty that's then prorated after that. NO ONE said a WORD about that until the mattress was delivered. NO ONE said anything about a $200 return fee either. I will be leaving 1-star reviews on EVERY website I can find to let people know NOT to buy their products. And ANYONE who asks how my experience with sleep number was will be getting a stern warning before purchasing! STEER CLEAR!
I bought the C4 mattress almost 1 year ago. Its comfortable at first but then starts to lose its structure and sink in the middle between the two sides. Mattress first of all is too light in weight. Its hard to keep in one place. When you put pressure on the sides, its sinks like a Walmart air mattress does. If you like to cuddle with your significant other at night, you might want to try a different bed. After 6 months or so, the center of the bed loses its strength and becomes a deep hole. I called customer service and complained and they said nobody else has complained about that, but I see in the reviews many people are experiencing the same thing. Keep in mind, this mattress arrives in a small box similar to a $75 mattress you would buy at Walmart. Its not a full mattress with material support that just gets filled with air. It has to be inflated and the air is the support. I'm very disappointed I wasted $2000 on this.
The iq10 I bought , has had 3 warranty problems, and now it's having more. They replaced the foot warmers, the remote, and the brain. The brain was replaced 2 weeks ago because of E3 connectivity errors, and now they say they are working on a fix, but have no time frame for a fix. I have been on the phone with them so much and am getting no positive response .I have to reset the bed every night , and they tell me that I will have to continue this and give me no time frame. I would not recommend buying a sleep number bed
Hands down the worst mattress ever. The 1st one was a perfect mattress with one flaw. .. the sides break down but a perfect sleep. New mattress. And it sinks everywhere Not firm at all. And hate it. The mattress stinks. Have had a support ticket for 3 months and they will not replace the mattress. And they won't answer my calls or emails. Absolutely bad Investment in the mattress. They give Zero Refunds This company is a fraud. .. Stay away from Shady company.
One star is too much. I am sure this mattress and system works for some but not for me. And frankly, I think their customer service and policies are a scam. I bought the ILE. Should have known there was an issue as they later discontinued. Basically, the sides sloped. We called right away and they told us to try different settings. Called again and they extended the trial time. Called again and spoke to a supervisor but instead of sending someone out they said they would just pick it up. That is nice but you cannot return the $3000 base. Yes that was discussed but was not clear that was the case when we went to the store right after purchase, found out they could do nothing and had to call, contacted them on the phone a few weeks after purchase, and then 2 more times. Frankly they strung us along on telling us to try different numbers. The last time we called and inquired about the base they said it was against the law to take it back. Not sure what that law is...maybe the law of good customer service. Now I have a $3000 base and forced to buy 2 doubles or a king and use the functionality of the base the same on both sides, which does not work so I guess I buy 2 twins. And the app to change the bed settings id no longer available, not discussed but I am sure nits somewhere in the fine print. They are more than happy to have you return the mattress because they have you locked into the overpriced base that has issues. The guys picking up the mattress did not seem surprised. Don't get sucked in by the commercials and fancy sales reps. Do not buy the base, period. And for me, there are better mattresses on the market.
We purchased a high end sleep number and I have never had so much pain in my body. Hips, elbows, all my joints ache since getting this mattress. I have tried various settings , do not get this bed.
All the other companies who have an adjustable base will take back the base and mattress within 100 days and refund your money...... this company WILL NOT. Yes they shove a thing for you to sign which no one takes the time to read which says they will not refund the 2 grand for the base. So buy it if you must knowing they will take back the mattress but just know you will be out 2 grand if you return it.
My "comfort foam" failed in a little over one year making the bed way too soft and painful. I was forced to troubleshoot the issue myself wasting hours. When I finally diagnosed the issue, despite it being under warranty, Sleep Number insists on charging me over $100 for a "technician" to come install this simple part and would not let me replace it myself. Their product was defective in under 2 years, costing thousands of dollars, and they still feel entitled to go into my pockets again!? BUYER BEWARE.
PLEASE READ ALL! BUYERS BEWARE! This is review is based on Sleep Number the Company. Not per store. My wife and I purchased the i8 queen and the Flexfit 2 base which we tried at the store. It felt good. After trying it at home. Our backs and shoulders hurt badly. Nothing like at the store. We figured let it break in. So for 2 weeks, we tried all adjustments. From 0-100 it just didn't work for us. We called support. They were very nice. They said try for at least 30 days so your body gets used to bed and the bed gets used to you. We did. Sorry to say, Still no good. It just didn't work for us. It happens. Here is the complaint at this point though. We then had to try another model because to return it would cost $250 restocking fee. They told us the C4 would be firmer. We were confident one of the sleep number beds would work for us. Well it was firmer. The problem is with the C4, it is only 9 inch. I am a 270 lb guy. Even set at 100, I felt the platform nozzles under the mattress. So now we called, explained our issues. They said you only get one exchange. We thought we were stuck with this thin mattress made for a 9 year old kid. Well after putting up a stink. The manager gave us an ultimatum. One more exchange. But no return allowed. Not even for the $250 fee. The P6 was now suggested. But if we didn't like it we were stuck with it and we would have to pay around $5000. So we made the harsh decision to return and pay the $250 fee, not to mention the original delivery fee of $200 and take the loss. Now they tell us the base is non returnable, but it can still be used with most mattresses. So at $1899+ as long as it worked the SAME with other mattresses we would deal with it. Well here is where the MAJOR COMPLAINT COMES IN PLAY. The delivery guys come and take the mattress away and put on a support bar and give you a free remote. Well what sleep number sneakily does is, - THEY STEAL the pump from your base. The Bluetooth feature that makes the base work with the phone app is in that part, which is now GONE! ACTUALLY STOLEN! The Remote must be is subpar because it loses connectivity every time you go to use the thing. So here is the problem in a ripped-off nutshell. Flexfit 2 Base that you are stuck with if you purchase from sleep number no matter what, that is supposed to work with your Smart Phone. Endless head and foot positions Partner Snore Technology Under bed lighting WELL WITHOUT THE PUMP THE FEATURES YOU PAID FOR, DON'T WORK. NO SMART PHONE TECHNOLOGY HEAD AND FOOT POSITIONS WORK SOMETIMES, CONNECTION ISSUES. I SAY AGAIN! SLEEP NUMBER WILL NOT LET US RETURN THE GARBAGE BASE! PRICE $1899 + TAX PLUS DELIVERY!!! WE GOT SO RIPPED OFF. PLEASE. PLEASE THINK BEFORE BUYING A SLEEP NUMBER. WE LEARNED THE HARD WAY. WE NOW OWN A PURPLE. It is Awesome !
