Amerisleep FAQ

As always, this post is NOT sponsored by Amerisleep.

 ***UPDATE: Since buying our mattress in 2012, Amerisleep has started a new referral program. If you order your mattress through my link, you'll save an additional $50 on top of other discounts and specials! Click my link, enter your promo code (there's usually one on the Amerisleep site), and receive BOTH discounts. Easy peasy!***


I've received many emails from readers who are considering ordering an Amerisleep mattress. It's funny because I don't actually work for the company (never have) yet I've become sort of a brand ambassador because of the review I posted on my blog. Rather than keep responding to the same questions individually, it seemed like a smart idea to post the questions and answers here. If you think of a question that isn't here, please feel free to send me an email.

And, speaking as the self-proclaimed, unofficial Amerisleep ambassador, if my discount link or anyone over at Amerisleep gives you any trouble, just let me know and I'll ruffle some feathers. Muah ha ha! (evil laugh)


Okay, there's a slight possibility this "unofficial brand ambassador" thing might be going to my head...

Amerisleep FAQs

1. Do you still like your Amerisleep mattress?

   Yes, Sexy Nerd and I both love our mattress. We purchased a king-size Liberty bed from Amerisleep in February, 2012 and it still seems exactly like new. There is no sagging anywhere, which is great for me because when Sexy Nerd gets out of bed around 5 am (crazy, right?), I enjoy stretching out in the center and taking up the entire mattress. I'm a weird sleeper like that. With our old mattress, a Simmons Beautyrest that was HORRIBLE, I was unable to sleep in the center because soon after purchasing it new, there were 2 deep, firm divots in the mattress from where each of us typically slept. The poor service we received from Simmons was actually the catalyst for posting my original Amerisleep review.

2. Does your Amerisleep mattress get too hot during the summer?

   After reading memory foam mattress reviews online before making our purchase, I expected that the mattress would become more firm or more soft based on the temperature of our bedroom and that it might even be uncomfortably hot during the summer. However, that hasn't been the case at all, which was a nice surprise. We keep our house super-cold in the winter. (Think I'm exaggerating? Here's a photo of our dogs wearing earmuffs.) We keep our house super-warm during the summer, in the low 80s usually. The mattress feels great year-round. A big part of this might be the sheets though - I haven't slept on the mattress without sheets, so I'm not sure if having that buffer makes a difference.

   I hope this isn't TMI, but our Simmons Beautyrest had big, embarassing sweat stains from where we slept each night...especially on my side! We've used our Amerisleep mattress more than twice as long and it is completely stain-free. If that doesn't prove that it doesn't get hot, I don't know what will.

3. How long did it take for the chemical smell to disappear from your Amerisleep mattress?

   This was actually another pleasant surprise. I'm sensitive to chemical smells and worried about how long the "off-gassing" period would be. I expected that the mattress would give me a pounding headache if used right away, similar to the reaction I have when someone wears too much perfume (which, to me, is any perfume). My plan was to sleep in a separate room for at least the first few nights after unwrapping/expanding our new Liberty bed. I'd even read online about other memory foam mattresses being kept in the garage for weeks after being opened because the smell was so bad. However, our mattress seemed just fine when we first received it and, sure enough, I woke up without any head discomfort after the very first night. 

4. What's the best thing about your Amerisleep mattress?
  
   Sexy Nerd says it's that he no longer wakes up with back pain, which was a huge problem with our old mattress. Whenever we travel or he goes on a business trip, he always looks forward to coming home to sleep our mattress, no matter how luxurious the hotel accommodations have been. For me, the best part has to do with the wine glass photo above - no transfer of motion! As a lifelong sufferer of idiopathic insomnia, I'm an extremely light sleeper. When Sexy Nerd moves or gets out of bed, our mattress stays put.

5. Would you recommend an Amerisleep mattress to a friend?

   Obviously! LOL.

6. Is an Amerisleep mattress worth the extra cost?
   
   Although I do believe our mattress is worth the so-called "extra cost", I think it's important to note that it really isn't more expensive than other mattresses, especially if you purchase it on sale. It's certainly less pricey than Temper-Pedic, which I think is essentially the same mattress sold under a fancy label.

   Our Amerisleep Liberty mattress ended up costing less than our Simmons Beautyrest and was a much better value because it has lasted so much longer. We paid almost $1,500 for our Simmons mattress and were ready to list it on Craigslist within a year, not that we had much luck with the deep grooves running through it. More than five years later, our Amerisleep mattress is still like new. I have photos to prove it.

7. Is there anything else I should consider before ordering an Amerisleep mattress?

   Never underestimate the importance of customer service. I have probably emailed Amerisleep dozens of times over the past several years, first with questions before ordering my mattress, and later with questions from my blog readers. Everyone I've interacted with at Amerisleep has been helpful and professional. Even the CEO, Firas Kittaneh, has taken the time to personally write to me! I highly recommend them. With our last mattress, a king-size Simmons Beautyrest we purchased new for an obscene amount of money, we thought we were investing in a quality product from a reputable company. However, when our expensive mattress turned out to be defective, it was almost impossible to reach customer service. When we finally did, Simmons would not honor our warranty. Although they acknowledged our mattress was clearly defective, they said the warranty was voided when one corner of the mattress got scuffed moving into our new house. They even acknowledged that the scuff was merely cosmetic and couldn't possibly have any impact on our mattress! You can imagine our frustration. Now, I hate Simmons. They are my nemesis.

So, now you know why we love our Amerisleep mattress so much. If you've enjoyed my blog and you know someone in the market for a new mattress, I'd love for you to share this with your friends, family, and coworkers. Come to think of it, especially share it with your family - you don't want to visit and get stuck on their Simmons Beautyrest in the guest bedroom!

Amerisleep Mattress Reviews: 5 Years Later

*Disclaimer*
These Amerisleep reviews are NOT a sponsored post. Not in any way whatsoever. Unlike other "impartial" reviewers out there, I did not receive my Liberty Bed for free. All the opinions here are 100% my own.

*6/17/17 Update*  Since publishing my original review, Amerisleep has started a new referral program. If you order through my link (THANK YOU!) you'll save an additional $50 on top of other discounts and specials! There is almost always a promo code available on the Amerisleep website, so if there's not a good deal today, check back tomorrow.
If you buy through my link, that would be swell because then I'll get a referral bonus that I can use toward purchasing other memory foam products for the house we're about to break ground on hopefully any day nowwe're finally building (!!!), so placing your order through my link would be so helpful, especially as we're a bit (a lot!) over budget already.

A Blogger's Before & After Guide to Chemical Peels

A Handy "Before & After" Guide to Chemical Peels - 6/25/17 Update
Since writing my chemical peel blog review back in 2013, I've had quite a few Jessner peels (my favorite) and TCA peels. However, I've saved a ton of money over the past 6 months by doing my own chemical peels at home. At my last professional peel, I made a note of the product being used and did some research when I got home. I was able to buy the exact same one, Dermalure Jessner Solution Acid Peel 14%, from Amazon for less than the cost of a single peel. I also use Dermalure's AHA/BHA Acne Cleanser. (Apply this before the Jessner.) It's self-neutralizing, despite what the Amazon listing says, and couldn't be simpler. That said...
I'm not sure I'd recommend this to a chemical peel newbie, as you're already nervous enough the first time without the added worry of doing it yourself, but it's so convenient (and cost effective!) once you're comfortable with the chemica…

Dream Home Dreaming

*Update*
We've finally broken ground on our mountain dream home! Can you believe it? Even more surprising, we actually managed to work a good chunk of this list into our actual design.

Original post:

Sexy Nerd wants to move up building our dream home to yesterday. I still don't know what I want though! Yes, it's difficult to decide on things like paint colors, flooring, and appliances. My problem is a bit worse.

Should we build one of those adorable 500 square feet mini houses? A (budget-friendly) mansion? A charming stone cottage?

Ultra-modern??

The internet makes it easy to find great design ideas for building our dream house. The downside is that all my favorite photos combine to make an overpriced, mismatched conglomeration.

According to my Pinterest account, my dream house has:

...a dramatic front entrance...

6/25/17 Update: Our entrance is dramatic - and bright, sunshine yellow!
 ...a charming brick fireplace...
