Time for a New Mattress?

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!***

I've received a lot of emails from readers who are considering ordering an Amerisleep memory foam 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 post it in the comments or send me an email.

And, speaking as the self-proclaimed, unofficial Amerisleep ambassador, they are now tipping me off to their sales ahead of time and providing additional discounts only for LambAround readers (WOO HOO HOO! right?) Just order through my special link for an extra $50 discount, in addition to their other specials, including their "Deal of the Day". And if the code gives you any trouble, just let me know and I'll ruffle some Amerisleep feathers. Muah ha ha! (evil laugh)

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

 Tempur-Pedic would have you believe only their mattress can pass the wine glass test, but Amerisleep has them matched!

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 although it has been more than 4 years, our mattress still seems exactly like new. There is no sagging anywhere, which is great for me because when Sexy Nerd gets out of bed (around 5am - crazy!) usually 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.

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 would 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. The mattress always feels like it's the same temperature as everything else - no warmer or cooler than the surrounding blanket. 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.

3. How long did it take for the chemical smell to disappear from your Amerisleep memory foam 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 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 much 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 lasts so much longer. We paid almost $1,500 for our last 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 four 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 has taken the time to 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. You can imagine our frustration! Now, I hate Simmons. They are my nemesis.

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!
