Recently I have started to see people come in or call regarding the Saatva Mattress. From talking with these people and checking out this company I now have a pretty clear picture. This new company is doing a very heavy online marketing campaign. They are catching people’s attention and then they are saying the right things. They are doing such a good job that it is taking some effort just to bring people back to reality.
What this new Saatva Mattress company is doing is putting websites out there showing great reviews. The information on these mattresses make you think they have some new and better mattress invention.
The fact is this: They are using the Leggett & Platt Pocketed coil 850 spring system. They then take polyurethane foam and place it on top. They have a few different density levels of poly that they use. They ship these to you at a good price. The most enticing thing they offer is a 90 day trial period. You can ship it back to them for $99 along with a 15 year warranty. (Both of which sound pretty good). When you combine the great reviews, how can you go wrong?
The answer is: You can’t (They have pretty good product. The 850 pocketed coil system is good and their poly foam foam is also good).
The only thing is: We beat them across the board. We use the 950 pocketed coil system (also made by Leggett & Platt). The 950 system (according to the manufacturer is better). L&P claims that it allows more support on the edge and a longer lasting mattress. (The 950 also costs more because it has more steel).
Where these guys sell 3 different models (We have 5 on the showroom floor) We not only show the same polyurethane padding that they have, we also show 2 different latex models). (You can buy our latex version for less money then their poly version).
They have 15 year warranty. (their warranty offers 3 years and is then prorated. Ours is 5 years before we prorate and then 10 years. (But don’t worry so much about the fact that our warranty is 10 years and theirs is 15. Our mattress will lasts longer because it’s a better quality mattress. (Their mattress is prorated over 15 years. That means that in 10 years they would give you a few dollars towards another mattress at best. That way they get to sell you another mattress). This mattress is designed to only last about 10 years so their 15 year warranty is somewhat bogus.
Their king set is $1600 (Ours is $1,000)
Their Queen set is $1248 (Ours are $775)
Their Frames costs $99 – $120 (Ours are $40- $50)
You can come and try our mattresses out.
A few other things: (Our mattresses are not getting abused in a delivery truck) (Unlike a delivery service, we work with you on delivery time that is convenient to you).
In other words……….. There is no such thing as a magic new mattress. All 500 mattress manufacturers get their components from the same few place. The best way to buy a mattress is buy from a manufacturer that cares and takes the time to purchase the best components. That is what we do.
