Intellibed was founded in 2000 with a mission to be a sleep and health wellness company. Their hybrid mattresses feature their innovative Gel Matrix® -- a responsive gel grid that is firmer than memory foam. Intellibed mattresses feature layers of latex or memory foam, the Gel Matrix, and a coil support system. Overall, customers like their mattresses and liken them to other familiar gel technology used in other mattresses. Still, the price points are much higher than expected for the materials, and some customers have mentioned issues with firmness and longevity.


One of the most popular mattress brands, Nectar has revolutionized the all-foam mattress industry with designs that focus on universally comfy firmness and support. With 3 all-foam mattresses and even some newer hybrid options, customers have reported enhanced cooling and supreme pressure relief in the Nectar Premier & Premier Copper. With value-add benefits like a full year trial and 'forever' warranty, quality materials for the price, and 'Buy Now, Pay Later' financing options, it should be a serious consideration for value-conscious shoppers. Now available in Canada. From the UK? See our review for the UK version.

Intellibed's Owner Satisfaction

Getting input from customers is a great way to shorten your list of potential mattresses to look at. These mattresses get high marks from customers, but there were a few folks that complained. The below has more information about the feel of the mattress and a selection of customer reviews -- study more to see if one of these works for your body!

Intellibed's Supportiveness

Having mattress support means having a healthy spine and comfort for the long term. These mattresses provide solid support for most folks, but there are some rare complaints.

Edge Support
Edge support is an essential for customers looking for a great mattress and for those that need extra time getting in and out of bed. Most customers report that these mattresses do well on edge support, but some heavier folks may find the edge support less than ideal for them.

Bowling Ball & Density Tests
Bowling ball tests are good indicators of firmness as well as support. These mattresses offer solid support for most customers, but some rarely may experience issues with even support long term.

Intellibed's Durability

Longevity is one of the main things that makes an excellent mattress excellent, but because of the influx of new companies in the space, it can be hard to shoppers to understand. That said, customers are quite responsive about what they like and what they don't like about many brands. These mattreses last for more than a few years for the average customer. Heavier folks may find these mattresses to be less long living.

Nectar's Owner Satisfaction

It can be hard to get to the bottom of which mattresses are really most loved by customers -- from brands that protect their reputation to mattresses that just launched. That said, it can be really helpful to see what reviewers are saying across the Internet. These mattresses get some of the highest marks from customers for overall comfort.

Nectar's Supportiveness

A supportive mattress is the key to waking refreshed. You want a mattress that feels just as good in the morning as it does when you go to sleep at night. These mattresses are well supportive.

Edge Support
Edge support is always important to those that want to lay close to the edge of the mattress, desire sitting on the edge, or have mobility issues. These mattresses do a well with edge support and don't sag too much on the edges.

Bowling Ball & Density Tests
Popular among reviewers, the bowling ball test does a good job showing firmness and contouring, but also evenness of support. If a mattress doesn't do well providing even support, then there is a big problem. Luckily, these mattresses provide solid even support for sleepers.

Nectar's Durability

Customers agree that these mattresses are competitive when it comes to durability versus the competition. For buyers, finding a mattress that offers good durability can mean years of extra sleep. while one that fails quickly can mean endless back pain. For most sleepers, these mattresses will last between 7 - 12 years on average, which is good for contemporary mattresses. Those folks that weight more than average or use their mattresses more than once a day may experience slight decreases in longevity.

This is one of the most comfortable mattresses I have slept on. Have enjoyed it since the first night we received it. Got pillows to go with it and love them too. Highly recommend

Good sleep
Both my wife and I like the bed

finally found THE mattress
sleeps cool and comfortable. love it

Great bed overall
We like our Intellibed. It's comfortable and has a clean look to it. Never noticed any discomfort. We thought from other reviews that it was going to be really firm but it's actually softer than we hoped. Also, I wish the cotton protection cover zipped around the bed. It's more like a sheet-which makes me question dust mites ability to enter the bed. Overall comfortable sleep.

Finally my wife can sleep! Thank you!
My wife and I attest to the quality and comfortable sleep on our IntelliBed mattress. We have the King Size IntelliBed and have slept on it now for four months. What a difference and improvement of our sleep. My first night on the bed was an adjustment for us as it moves differently than our old foam based mattress, however we both noticed that we slept longer, did not turn over as much, and felt better in the morning. After a few days use, the IntelliBed bed felt natural, and we felt so rested, it's wonderful. For me, it doubled my restful sleep; my old foam mattress seemed to get so hot, and create pressure points, that I would interrupt my sleep to frequently turn over throughout the night; not any more. Four months since our first sleep on our IntelliBed, we are now making plans to purchase our 2nd IntelliBed for our vacation home.

Posture Perfect Bed
It is a nice bed and very comfy but I do not think 60 days is enough time for your body to adjust and get use to it before deciding if a softer bed would work better. Some nights I do great and other nights I wake up hurting bad from the bed. As of now it is 50/50. Sometimes I wonder if the softer bed would have been a better choice for me. As of now there are no options without consequences.

Amazing Bed!!
This bed is the perfect mix of firm and soft. As my wife and I looked for a new bed we constantly struggled to find something that fit us both but didn't limit us to where we laid on the bed. We both immediately said we loved the feel of the bed when we tested it and only love it more now that we have had if for a couple of months.

We gave it a thirty night stay, but could not get a good night sleep on this mattress. Customer service in handling our questions/concerns and in the ordering process was top notch.

Love the bed and the customer service!
Had a wonderful experience with ordering my intelliBed AND love the bed itself!

Feeling much better
I had problems with my knees and hips. My arms hurt when I woke up from improper sleep positions. I bought an intellibed and after awhile of getting used to it I felt so much better. I also bought an intellipillow. My neck aches and pains dissapeared. I will keep this bed forever. I live in an RV that has storage under the bed. This bed weighs about 95 lbs. I had a stronger lift put in and now it's perfect!! Thank you intellibed for your customer service and excellent bed!

Great bed, amazing customer service!
I love my new bed. It's made such a difference. However, I've really been blown away by intelliBED's outstanding customer service - tremendous!

Good customer service
My wife and I had some issues with our mattress and the customer service staff were prompt and helpful in getting things resolved.

Love my bed!
Almost bought another Sleep Number bed, had to cancel the order after I found out about Intellibed. Best decision ever!

I'm not sure yet.
After sleeping on this bed for a month, I'm not sure that my back pain is much better. (There are no other factors in my life for back pain; it is all related to time spent sleeping.) Then we were on vacation for a month and slept in various beds, and I had no back pain! Now back to sleeping on this mattress for a week, and my back is getting unbearable after a night's sleep. I'm not sure yet how I feel about this bed.

I bought this bed because it did not outgas and the salesperson told me it was a firm mattress which was very important to me. I got it and indeed it did not smell in any way. It was great because I had been sleeping on a hard futon.It started to feel soft so I called the company and they said to keep it for 30 days as I had to adjust to the comfort. My mistake! I ended up letting the return policy expire and now I am saddled with it,

I looked on the website as I felt as that my firm bed had no support. So they have it rated as feeling firm but then if you look further you see another rating where they say it has a soft back and posterior support. Now how can a mattress be firm but then super soft with little support on your back. I called to complain and they told me that 'Oh there was another mattress for $2100 that was indeed firm.' Yeah like I believe them.

Do not buy this mattress. Bad idea. Dishonest salespeople.

Horrible bed. Save your money and buy a traditional ...
Horrible bed. Save your money and buy a traditional mattress. You'll get a goodnights rest without the back pain, and other aches that come along with this bed.

A dream come true!
This mattress is a dream come true! After spending many years sleeping in a lazy boy recliner due to a back injury from a motorcycle accident, I was convinced that I would never be able to sleep on a mattress ever again. I have owned the intelliBED Relief Perfect mattress for 6 months and have been able to wake every morning with no pain or discomfort. I have noticed that my sleep has improved. Instead of getting 4-5 hours of sleep, I am now averaging 7-8 hours of sleep. Every night! I highly recommend this mattress for anyone and everyone!

LOVE this mattress
LOVE this mattress! I sleep better than ever before! My back and neck issues have gone away. This is the best mattress and I would recommend it for anyone!

better and to wake up actually feeling rested
I have had insomnia for about 17 years and have tried everything to sleep longer, better and to wake up actually feeling rested. Investing in this bed was one of the best decisions I have ever made. It allows me to not toss and turn and to get the much needed deep sleep I was so desperate to find. I have zero issues with my insomnia, no more back pain and more than that I sleep cool and more comfortable than I ever had. It has truly been an amazing purchase - so much that we have also have the pillows, sheets and toppers for our tent trailer.

Best Bed I've Owned, and I've owned them all!
I had an old water bed I used to look forward to getting into. I have tried Sleep Number, 2 Tempurpedics and had not been able to find a bed I enjoyed getting into. Until this one. It is the most comfortable bed I've experienced. The bed seems to suck the pain our of my muscles and I wake up every morning refreshed and well-rested. I don't toss and turn like I have in the past since there are no hot spots that develop under high-weight areas. I justified the price as this may be the last bed I own and the warranty is a lot longer than on a normal bed. I have a Fitbit which tracks sleep. I checked it before and after I bought the bed. I have far less interrupted sleep on this bed. I definitely recommend this!

Fabulous bed!
I love this bed! I have been sleeping on it for a year and a half and I enjoy every night. My body is supported perfectly and I love that it is non-toxic. It is worth every penny as it has a 30 year warrantee and is used nightly. Looking at it that way, it is actually a bargain! It did take me several nights to get used to as my body had to re-pattern itself to sleeping with real support. I didn't like the pillow, though, and went back to my down one.

I have never slept better in my life
If you don't have this bed you are missing out.... I have never slept better in my life. I never want to get out of my bed. It will take about 30 days for your body to get adjusted to the bed. It is worth the money and you won't regret it. Don't think about it, buy it!

Fantastic service
Fantastic service and follow-through, not to mention a superior product. IntelliBed will be the last mattress I buy.

No more back problems
No more back problems when I wake up:)

I am VERY happy
I am VERY happy with my miracle bed. When I first got it they said the first month would be a ‘period of adjustment ‘. I didn’t think that was accurate because I loved it from my first night. Happy to say I was WRONG! It just keeps getting better. This was/is more than a bed to me. I have been in a very long healing process from a serious injury, so this has been facilitating my healing in ways I could not have imagined. THANK YOU!!

First month is in the books
First month is in the books! Greatest sleep I've had in ages. Issues I thought were age and activity level related are starting to subside. I thought my hips were bad because of playing basketball 4 times a week, come to find out my old mattress was likely the culprit. I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase and would recommend Intellibed to everyone!

This bed and this company can't be beat
This bed and this company can't be beat. We have tried numerous beds in the last two years. This is the first time my husband and I aren't waking up with sore hips and lower backs. Well worth the money we spent. The customer service is exemplary. Finally, we can sleep pain-free. Thank you IntelliBED!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE my new Intellibed
I LOVE LOVE LOVE my new Intellibed! I was a little nervous about purchasing such an expensive bed without trying out but felt good that they offered a 60 day money back guarantee. I knew after the first night I would not be returning this bed. It is fabulous! I sleep so much better. No more aches and pains in the night in my hips or my back. Surprisingly, even the Intellibed pillow is amazing. I wasn't expecting much from a pillow but it has really helped with my neck pain. This bed was definitely worth every penny!!

Good service but slow
Good service but slow. Expensive..

What a pleasure
What a pleasure. It was easy to ordered. It arrived right on time. And, sleep. Yes, what a wonderful sleep. Thank you for your great product.

Very comfortable
Very comfortable, but I still tend to get circulation pains if I lay on one side too long. I think I do tend to sleep better, at least some.

I love my intellibed mattress
I love my intellibed mattress! it is amazing!

I am pregnant and changing to my Intellibed
I am pregnant and changing to my Intellibed took away my hip and shoulder pains from sleeping on the side all the time!! I can only imagine how comfortable Ill be once not pregnant anymore!!!

Got the first set with the bed
Got the first set with the bed, then because we liked them so much we bought a 2nd set.

Purchased mine at the home show
Purchased mine at the home show at the South Town Expo Center. The adjustable base is really nice to have too. I definitely would recommend to anyone.

It's the best bed ever
It's the best bed ever. It took me 3 weeks to get use to it but i hung in there and now it feels great.

The bed is just as wonderful
The bed is just as wonderful as I had hoped. My husband and I are sleeping better and waking up without the aches we had before. However, I was supposed to receive sheets and pillows as part of the promotion I purchased the mattress with. The sales man didn't include it in the invoice, so once I realized this I emailed and called customer service leaving a message because no one answered. No one ever returned my email or phone message.

Not a miracle bed
Not a miracle bed. Its comfortable but I still have pressure feelings and need to change position several times a night. We have rotated the mattress but still have a feeling we are making depressions in the bed on the spots in which we usually sleep.

Intellibed (Midnight)
After 10 years we came to the realization we needed a new mattress. What a job! Not only are there a lot of choices but many different price ranges. After the standard search both retail store and online we finally made our choice. It was between the Pillow top Sterns and Foster and the Intellibed. The Intellibed hands down was the better bed. It was pricier than the Sterns & Foster but in hind sight the better choice. We have been sleeping on our new Intellibed (Midnight) for almost two months now (My wife and I generally sleep on all sides) No off gassing (no pun intended), Temperature just right, 20 year warranty, 30-90 days to test. These people will refund your money less a removal fee if you don’t like it. Many places will only let you exchange for another one of their other products. Received free set of sheets, Mattress Protector and 2 large pillows. The pillows have some off gas, however if you let them air out for a couple of weeks they are quite nice. Also purchased a standard frame that elevates both head and feet. Height of entire bed can be adjusted, we set ours a little under 32” above floor. We were worried that the bed might not perform after investing a fair amount of money. We bought the bed because our former bed (Beauty Rest) had surpassed its usefulness and my wife’s hips were really bothering her. She also had a hard time getting and staying asleep at night. She is not totally without hip pain but she sleeps much better and wakes much more rested than our previous bed. It took about a week to really start enjoying this bed. We would like to report that the decision to purchase this bed from Mattress Firm (Lincoln, Ca) was the right decision because the bed is simply Wonderful. This is only the 2nd time I have ever taken the time to write a review, this Intellibed (Midnight) is worth the investment of your money, sleep and ultimately your wellbeing. I personally think this is the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on, including many hotels such as the Ritz. The Con: This mattress is very heavy. Delivery people cannot get this mattress into the house without some contact with the ground. It has plastic protection during delivery, however for the average person to move it after delivery is a lot harder than most mattresses. It would probably take four people and there are no straps to help with that process. I am not planning to move my bed any time soon, but be aware to move this mattress for any reason is a chore.

This mattress changed our lives for the better! It is absolutely the perfect firmness and temperature. We had a queen bed for so long and desperately needed a king since our baby sleeps with us. We couldn’t afford the insane prices out there so we took a chance on Nectar and boy did it pay off.

This was amazing from start to finish.
This mattress is so comfortable! I really can’t get over it. We bought it when we moved to our new house. It was perfect timing as it came in the exact day that we moved in. My wife was stressed at the idea of shopping for a mattress in person so being able to do everything online made it super easy. Delivery was quick and setup was incredibly easy. We bought a King. It’s a really comfy bed - not too firm, not too soft. I appreciate that it comes with a nice cover. Lastly, company communication has been great.

These Mattresses are wonderful.
I have several properties and I have bought them for each. They are delivered right to your door and so incredibly easy to set up. They come wrapped in a vacuum sealed plastic and come in a bag! a bag!!!!. You simply take the rolled up mattress out cut the outer plastic and unroll it on the bed frame, then cut the inner plastic and within moments, the mattress fluffs up. I gave mine about 4-5 hours and then I made the bed and it is comfy! The number one comment I get on my rental reviews is how comfy the beds are! This is a WONDERFUL deal and a super wonderful bed. The folks at Nectar are amazing and very responsive. If you are looking for a new mattress, don’t hesitate ordering this one.

I was very hesitant to buy a mattress without trying it out first, but I did a lot of research and decided to take the risk. I tried several different styles of memory foam mattresses in stores and I’d say this falls right in the middle. It’s not too hard, and not too soft. I sink in just enough to feel supported, but not so much that it’s difficult to move. It took me about two weeks to adjust to it. I was stiff in different places, but after a month, I sleep much more soundly, I wake up less in the middle of the night, and I’m not sore in the morning. I am very pleased with our purchase.

Very pleased.
There are a few things that you should always buy in person to check for quality.

Fresh fruit. Diamond rings. Cars.

Up until a few months ago, I would have added mattresses to that list. Wasn’t that one of the morals of “Goldilocks and the Three Bears”? Most of us were taught that the moral was that a life of crime does’t pay and you really shouldn’t be sneaking into other people’s houses - especially if they are bears -“ but another, often overlooked moral was “not every mattress will feel JUST RIGHT. Try before you buy.”

When I saw Nectar’s claim of a mattress with optimal comfort, I was skeptical. What worked for Mama Bear and Papa Bear wasn’t what worked for Baby Bear.

But Nectar’s business model intrigued me as did their pricing structure. And if their mattress didn’t work out, I would return it and they would donate it to charity. Win-win.

I’m happy to report that Goldilocks was wrong. There are some mattresses that are JUST RIGHT for everyone. This is one of them. My husband and I both sleep well on our King mattress from Nectar. The quality is fantastic. The business model is sublime. And my bank account is happy that I didn’t spend a small fortune on a bed.

So I guess you could say we’re living happily ever after.

Unlike Goldilocks. Who really shouldn’t have broken into the bears house.

Very satisfied, I would recommend
Experience in the company was very good. In addition to speaking our language, the company, the type of mattress, when tailored to the needs of our family to describe the features of nectar mattress, took us an extra effort to understand or did. When the mattress has arrived, we were very impressed by the quality. Hari was perfect. We’ve been sleeping very well. Very strong recommendation

The best investment I've made in many years
Well, this mattress has been nothing but good to us. I used to wake up with lower back pain and would be stiff for the first 30 minutes or so out of bed. After two nights of sleeping on this mattress, my back pains were gone and I am sleeping better than I have in years. Trust me, this is the solution for your sleeping issues.

Hate Mattress Shopping. Love Nectar!
I hate mattresses and I think the whole industry is a sham. I hate the cigarette smell of the mattress salesperson at Sleepy's who tries to sell me on a bed I try, then, as soon as I try a different bed, starts telling me why that bed, not the other, is the best. I think the stores are sleazy. My cousin bought a mattress from Nectar and I thought, why not, since they have a no cost try-out that is so long, plus, I needed my old bed taken away. I love the bed. No really, the bed is outrageous and the customer service person must have checked back with me four times after my order. This was so much better and easier than any other mattress I bought. The mattress feels so good and smells wonderful, fresh. I’m telling my parents and sisters and cousins on Staten Island to buy one.

Pretty Unique
I’m really glad my friend told me about Nectar. I was working through a research process and was encountering other brands that advertised more. My wife and I had slept on a Tempurpedic, but we were looking for something a little more comfortable and hopefully less expensive. Nectar had great prices and amazing mattresses. Our research had us comparing alot of brands. It was very hard to understand differences sometime but the NECTAR team answered questions for me over the course of about a week and were very forthright. I didn’t think about sleep trials or comfort guarantees or bed bug guarantees or foam types, cover types, anything really until the Nectar folks educated me. It has been 30 days sleeping on the mattress and I just received this request in my email for a review. Honestly, I feel like I one upped everyone and have a better mattress for a better price. That’s their language I think, but it stuck. It’s really comfortable and feels better. I know the mattress is healthy because I researched this part in depth and only wanted a mattress with little chemical production. If you have any questions about buying these things, ask their customer service, they’re great at their jobs and actually seem to care. I never felt like they were trying to sell me. They sounded really busy by the way at the office when I called and when I asked, they said they had just gotten some press on being 100% employee owned and rated very highly and could barely keep up with orders. Ours arrived in three or four days I think to St. Louis and it looks like it shipped Fedex from the West Coast.

Great mattress, great customer service.
The best purchase in a long time. This mattress is a total win. I recommend this mattress if you’re looking for something at a good price yet comfortable. I am currently 6 weeks into my trial and so far so good.

The mattress arrived 3 days after I placed my order. As described it arrived in a nice nylon bag with convenient handles to carry it up the stairs. The mattress unrolled nearly flat immediately, and expanded what appeared to be fully in just a few minutes. There was some minor off gassing that dissipated within 24 hours. We also have a Tempurpedic memory foam mattress. In terms of price and quality, I prefer the Nectar.

We love bed and company people were very helpful and friendly. Funding was automatic and I was very well treated and respected. My mother has asked for a new mattress and let her buy a nectar, as well as price and financing are very good and the bed has an excellent guarantee that does not end.

Love their mattresses..
It comes in a bag all vacuumed sealed. It works great on my bad back! It doesn’t have any weird funky smells. The mattress exterior covering seems really high quality and luxurious! Have been sleeping on it for over 3 months and have never slept better.

The most comfortable mattress.
Alright. Let me just start by saying until I bought this mattress I had TERRIBLE back issues that made me immobile at times. My partner and I decided it was time to upgrade our mattress because we felt like we couldn’t sleep on a queen size mattress without being on top of each other. When our Nectar mattress arrived we were SO excited and it seemed to good to be true and were about to be ready to send it back. Boy, were we proven wrong. I no longer have back issues, at all. When we sleep in the bed together it’s like I have my own bed. I also have a hard time falling asleep in any other bed that isn’t this one. In this bed as soon as I lay down I pass right out. If you want a quality mattress that is extremely comfortable and will make you sleep like a baby, buy this mattress.

Well, we were asked to give a review and normally I do not. I also did not want to give a review for a bed that I did spend "time" in.

So, it has been 30+ days now and I LOVE IT! I love it because I do not get up in the morning with joint pain in my shoulder and hip. No aches or pains...I sleep well...and my husband says the same thing. I also stay nice and cool at night. I absolutely would recommend NECTAR to my family and friends...I actually already have. And a 2 thumbs up for their customer service. I received it on time and in great shape. All around a AAA+ company to work with. I even put them on MY facebook page!

Quite the find
We purchased this mattress for my son’s room, and he loves it. It was super easy to buy and it was delivered right to our door. It was really easy to set up as well! I absolutely love the way it feels and I find myself lying in my son’s bed now. We’re actually thinking of getting one for ourselves. Oh, and thanks for all the great follow-up.

Impressive Experience
We do not purchase mattresses often and our last was bought perhaps a decade ago. Ordinarilly, I would never purchase a mattress without trying one in a store. My mother is in palliative care and I have not had time to visit a store so I researched delivery options and was impressed by the reviews and ratings of the Nectar mattress. I decided to try the bed since the return is so easy and no cost. I am so happy. Anyone thinking about a mattress should try Nectar. They say the mattress is constructed with different foams than others, but it is the airflow I noticed the most, despite the very solid feel of the construction. The company said this was the most comfortable mattress and I laughed at first when I heard this, but it is actually true.

Best Purchase in a long time
I've owned the Nectar Mattress for about 8 months now and it's the best purchase I've made for my back‚ The last few mattresses I’ve used sleep well for about 5.5-6hrs and then the backache would kick in and I knew it was time to get up.

With Nectar, I simply don’t want to get up !! I sleep the whole night. I’ve actually changed my sleeping habits, go to bed earlier to get more rest and wake up rejuvenated. To some this all may sound cliche and I think it does to me also, but I honestly have to say that this mattress has made a difference in the way I sleep and wake each morning.

Best of all, they have a 365 day guarantee, if you don’t like it, return it.

We are in love
Absolutely love this thing! Buying mattresses online is such a gamble, but we hit the jackpot with this one. We bought a king and it’s so comfortable. The mattress arrived compressed and it was super easy to set it up. Very little odor or smell. I recommend it to anyone that is willing to listen.

one of the best major purchases of my life
I’m not exaggerating when I say this is truly one of the best major purchases of my life. By now, you may have heard the hype about the company Nectar. Or perhaps you’re stumbling onto their product for the first time. Either way, you should go ahead and click *Buy* right now. Seriously. Even if you’re not 100% sure about `em. You’ll understand why by the end of this review.

Last year, my wife and I started mattress shopping. We were upgrading from a queen to king. We had so-so mattresses in the past and wanted to do it right, find something that really worked for both of us. You know the cliche: “you spend a third of your life in bed”? Yeah, well it’s true. Now, my wife has woman hips, I am thin and straight. Also cliche. We thought we needed a customizable bed to be truly comfortable, so we tried a SleepNumber. Bad mistake. It really is just two zippered air mattresses, with no localized back/hip support.

So we returned the SleepNumber (for which we had to pay shipping, but I suppose it was worth experimenting). Shortly afterward, I stumbled upon Nectar. As a new company, they didn’t yet have a large online presence. Then I saw the 365 day return policy and said, hey, why not?

One week later, we received our package in the mail. It came vacuum-sealed so we carefully cut the seal and it literally “popped” into place. Instant sleep-ready. Slapped on the sheets and proceeded to sleep like babies. One year later, we are still very happy customers.

Here are the specific reasons for my piling it on:

1 - Free shipping. What?!

2 - The no-hassle 365-day trial. If you don’t like it, you get a full refund. This was a HUGE factor for me, ordering from an online-only company and not yet knowing what firmness was ideal for us.

3 - Forever warranty is NOT pro-rated. Any covered defects, they replace the full value. This is highly unusual, as far as I know.

4 - No boxspring needed. I built my own platform bed and it works great. Plus, their warranty doesn’t require a boxspring, unlike many other companies.

5 - A single level of firmness has managed to satisfy both my wife and me. I’m still surprised, considering my wife has curvy hips and I don’t. But neither of us has had any back or neck pain.

6 - No middle men, hence, significantly lower prices. Funny as it sounds, this is a novel concept in the mattress industry. I don’t know if the typical industry markup is as astronomical as T&N claims, but it’s certainly a ripoff.

7 - The mattress definitely supports “relations”

8 - The whole shopping experience was just easy. Sleek, modern website and email. Clear policies and pricing. Immediate shipping information.

9 - I received a handwritten thank you note from Nectar. Can’t remember the last time that happened with an online purchase.

The only downside I’ve encountered: some fitted sheets these days are a hair too big for this mattress, even for the thicker 11” model. But it’s not Nectar’s fault. It’s because most mattress companies make a gimmick out of 20-layer, 100-inch thickness, and sheet manufacturers have followed suit. For what it’s worth, we ended up with the L.L. Bean Pima Cotton Percale fitted sheet and it worked out nicely.

Yes, this mattress is on the “firm” side but like I said, it’s worked for two (healthy) people with very different body types, which makes me wonder how much marketing hype goes into plush vs. firm. If you’re a side sleeper, I highly recommend a thick pillow, thicker than you may be used to.

Nectar has grown by leaps and bounds recently. And prices have increased ever so slightly since we bought our mattress last year, but it is still one of the best values in the industry. I hope they can manage to maintain their business ethic, great return policy, and pricing. These are what really sold me.

5 Star

The best rest
My experience with Nectar has just been flawless. It didn’t take me much time to make the online purchase. The shipping was also very fast. Excellent experience!

Great mattress
After months of research into a new mattress an intro to nectar popped up. I took several weeks comparing my choices to nectar and with help from their customer service (2 thumbs up for them) I chose nectar. I have no regrets. My husband and I have the best nights sleep, the mattress is plush and extremely comfortable and stays cool throughout the night. The warranty is exceptional and the customer service is great. I am very happy that I chose Nectar and would recommend them to anyone.

My mom is happy
I first purchased this twin sized mattress for my guest room. My mother found it really comfortable and it was her first experience sleeping on a Nectar. I have slept on it a few times as well and it is amazing! I am going to order a bigger one for myself! The bag showed up super fast, and it was so neat to see how huge it got when we took it out to let it expand. I really like the design and the way this mattress breathes. It feels much higher quality than my last mattress. Definitely worth the price!

Happy and happy
I’m like a teenager again (almost 54 now) not wanting to get out of bed. The only bad thing I can say about it is that I don’t want to leave it. This mattress seems like it is going to last forever, that’s maybe why Nectar offers a lifetime warranty. This is one of the most comfortable mattresses we’ve ever slept on! Definitely worth the price. I HIGHLY recommend this product to everyone.

This is my first formal product review
I do not provide reviews and am often very busy. My focus is on things that do actually matter, not reviews. When I received the request for a review I believed it would be good and important to share my experience. As my wife’s back has been hurting for years we have been to very many doctors and my wife is on cortisol and flexeril medications for pain. We were recommended the Nectar mattress by her Chiropractor and thought that was silly, being reccomended a mattress, but her Osteopath also recommended the mattress and we decided to learn more. The sories seemed quite incredible, so we researched the materials and company. We did not find much advertising but there seems to be very much word of mouth and the company representative confirmed that most of the mattresses are sold by recommendation. I thought the company was new but it had been around selling madical beds and I believe that is why their foams seem denser. The company suggested we apply for medicare reimbursement by receiving a prescription for the bed from my wife’s physician and incredibly, her insurance paid for the full cost of the bed. My wife’s takes far less medication for pain in the 30 days since we began sleeping on the bed and she is happier and well rested and this means I am also happier and better rested. It is a most comfortable bed and feels quite unique and enjoyable to rest upon. I have asked Parna’s mother if she would also like one.

Sweet dreams!
I’ve been sleeping on this mattress for a month and it has changed me- I highly recommend this mattress. It’s so comfortable. I couldn’t be happier for the price I paid. Well worth it!

Thanks Nectar!
It really is a dream to sleep on. My husband doesn’t want to leave the bed. Thanks for inventing this bed. This mattress saved my back. For the first few nights I thought it was just really comfortable. After a few nights when my back pain disappeared, I realized it was more than just comfort, it was a life saver. We really had been sleeping on an unhealthy bed. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a comfortable mattress and is looking for help with back pains.

Excellent quality
Perfect amount of firmness and softness. I would recommend this mattress to anyone who has back problems l have had many back surgeries and is equal to the much higher priced memory foam mattress. This bed is just super.

Like a Secret
Nectar is like a secret you may not want to share with just anyone..

Really fantastic mattress
I’ve been sleeping on the mattress with my fiancee since we had it delivered on April 19th. We can say that after almost two months that this mattress is fantastic. We have it directly on our carpeted floor and cannot feel the floor, even when we jump with our whole bodies and slam onto the bed. We found it slightly softer than our previous mattress (that’s just our opinion though). Overall, we are extremely happy with the purchase, so much so that we bought a twin mattress for our daybed downstairs.

A great night rest!
So far the new mattress has been great! My wife and I are finally enjoying sleeping through the night. I just love this mattress. After the first night, I was pain-free. I just couldn’t believe the difference. It’s soft and also very supportive. I can finally stand up straight right out of bed, haven’t done that in a lot of years. Amazing product!

I wish my Nectar was here 10 years ago
I never, ever, thought of mattresses. I just bought whichever felt good at the store and was in the price range and probably bought a new one twice now since leaving my parent’s home in 1997 and my Dad used to remind me that a mattress should be changed every 8 years. My boyfriend mentioned Nectar and I like that they will send a new cover if I need it, plus they have a really long Warranty and I think a few pretty famous people have recommended Nectar. Wow. It really is incredibly comfortable and just feels like a whole different experience. My boyfriend loves the new mattress and doesn’t even snore anymore. I like feeling cradled by the bed when we relax or even more, have fun. It’s great.

No way!
I wanted to make sure that I could easily return this mattress if I didn’t like it. There is no way this mattress is getting returned. It really is magic! Within 2 days, I felt a good 10 years younger. I’m able to fall asleep faster, and I feel much more rested when I wake up. I don’t think that even during workouts, I’d feel as good as I do when resting on my Nectar. I love the way the mattress sleeps and it is wonderful to relax on the Nectar.

Aah..Very unique feel
I haven’t slept this well since a long time ago. The first time I laid down, it was quite nice and I do not mean to sound like an advertisement, but it was like sleeping on a cloud. We felt very supported but had no sense of pressure points and it was as if the mattress lifted us in some way. It is a very unique feel. They offer a free return and we tried the mattress because it seemed no risk,, but who want to return it? We are sleeping better so for us, that would be crazy. I can feel the air breath through the airflow channels and the cover is quite supple and buttery. Very impressed and will recommend to others.

Well made
I needed to find an affordable, yet good quality mattress. The mattress arrived quickly. It was very easy to set up because literally all you have to do is unroll it and remove the plastic wrap as you roll and that’s it. This is my first memory foam mattress and so far I definitely prefer it to my traditional mattress. .

So comfortable!
So so comfortable! I loved the idea of getting a bed rolled up in a bag and delivered to me. I followed the instructions in setting it up and it was so so easy! I aired it out for a few days and when I finally lay on it, it was an absolutely amazing feeling. I guess that’s what happens when you finally get a good mattress. I’ve been sleeping on it for 3 months already and I absolutely love it!

Great mattress
First time I bought a mattress online. I have had it for about a week and I love it. This mattress is so comfortable. It’s like you melt when you lay down, not sure how else to describe it. I am a super satisfied customer. Great value too! Why would I spend so much more at one of those mattress stores, when I can have this? Keep it up Nectar. Highly recommend it to anyone that needs a new mattress.

Like Clouds..
I’m a rough sleeper, and I have had back and neck pain from sports. I could not believe the comfort of this bed. It was soft yet supportive, and the worst part about my Nectar is although fully rested, I get upset when I have to wake up. It literally makes me want to stay in bed all day. Like clouds!!

Arrived Day Late
I had to wait three days past delivery date. No stock more company said of Queen. I requested rush and they did and bed arrived. Very nice but why wait. Mother lives with us and cares for son and she did not like that they did not also sell box spring. When late the company did offer a discount and received a call from manager who seemed to care. Bed well priced and very nice quality.

Great product.
Alright. Let’s just say I’m a problem sleeper (insomniac) with chronic back pain. Spring mattresses tend to cause pressure points, and I overheat on memory foam/pillowtops. I’m also working with a pretty tight budget. It HAS GOT to be possible to get a good sleep AND have enough money to eat in the morning. So I did my research, checked out websites, and bit the bullet and bought a Nectar. If you’ve done your research you know what I’ll say next: The bed arrived within a week, unpacking it was a tickle (watching that flat plastic-wrapped slab turn into a full mattress made me grin), and I didn’t notice any chemical smell. To lay on, there’s nothing like it. firm, supportive, but with just enough bounce to feel like a “quality” bed and just enough “sink” to be cushy. Here’s the thing though: the first night I woke up feeling like there was some pressure on my hip, and neck (I sleep on my side, and wake up on my stomach most nights). same deal second, third night. but it’s a 365 night trial, so I decided to give it some time before returning it. Glad I did! the bed just needed some time to break in, and I needed to get used to it. Now I can confidently say that this, every night, is the best sleep of my life. better than the tempur (sink in and overheat) mattress, and it even edges out the (ludicrously expensive and mechanically complex) Sleep Number bed. Support where I need it, soft enough to feel luxurious, not to mention it wicks heat wonderfully and I don’t wake up sweating anymore. All In All, It’s perfect, just remember to really get into that 365 night trial so the bed can break in and you can get used to it.

y’know, like a good pair of shoes.

If you’re on the fence, Just do it. the trial is solid, the warranty is honest (and lacking all that fine print), and the bed is simply superior to anything I’ve tried.
