I told you all that I would do a full write up review on the Casper Bed after at least a few weeks… We’ve had the Casper Bed since Feb 4th. So its been just about 2 weeks. If you missed our unboxing video, feel free to watch that HERE.
Now before I get started with this review, let me start off by disclosing that I was not paid by Casper to write this. I was not given this mattress for free to conduct my review. I have been wanting a King Sized bed for a decade and finally just went for it.
The Casper Bed company is a company I had never heard of before. A friend of mine mentioned them to me after learning I was interested in a new bed… and as soon as I saw the concept of how it all worked, I knew it was what I wanted to do.
Travis and I debated going mattress shopping… but the idea of dragging four boys to a mattress store… dealing with sales men and or having to hire a sitter, costing us $10 an hour, just so we can look at some beds, didn’t make sense. What better way to buy a mattress than to have it shipped to your home.
There then came a decision.
BOTH looked great. Both had killer reviews….
Both had great return policies.
So being the bargain shopper than I am, I went with the cheaper one. Tuft and Needle.
Feel free to check out their site. Their company is great and this post is in no way written to bash them. I am just sharing my experiences and hopefully it’ll help someone.
Tuft & Needle had the same “business model” I guess you could say. You buy the mattress. Try it. If after 30 days you don’t like it, you can return it no hassle. Get a refund for 100% of what you paid. For those curious how that works with shipping the mattress back. Both Casper and Tuft and Needle DONATE their used beds to a charity… so you basically schedule a pick up with the Salvation Army, they come pick up the bed. You take a photo of your donation slip, email that to the company and that is it. You get a refund. Simple.
Travis and I loved the feel of the Tuft and Needle at first… but after night one… then night two…. and so forth, we knew it wasn’t for it. The mattress was beautifully craft and I loved the look… but it was just to firm. I had read many reviews where people said they would place toppers onto this mattress and it made for the perfect bed… but for me, I was paying for this bed and wanted it to be good, without a topper. I didn’t want to have to buy anything extra.
So we returned the Tuft and Needle bed… I really felt bad about this :( … Their customer service was SPOT ON… so kind… so understanding. I cannot praise them enough. So if you would like to try a cheaper alternative, try the Tuft. It may be perfect for you… it may not. You still get to try it – if its not a fit, return it, no questions.
So with that return, I then went and purchased the Casper.
This mattress cost $950.00 – with a coupon it was $900.00. The Tuft and Needle was $750.00. So roughly $150.00 more than the Tuft and Needle (with the casper coupon I found). So it is a little bit more…. but for a King Sized mattress, its still a great price!
Casper gives you a 100 day TRIAL! So you can try this bed for 100 days. If you hate it after 90 days, schedule a pick up. Full refund. No questions. You truly cannot go wrong.
From night one we loved this bed.
WOW. So incredibly soft… but not to soft.
I have lower back issues and DO NOT LIKE overly soft mattress. I have always hated memory foam too… but there is something special about this bed and it is just so perfect. Travis and I have slept great since day 1… and now at almost 2 weeks, we cant imagine not having this bed.
I love it.
Our Kids adore it. (they all want Casper now)
The ONLY CON I have, is that after the initial unboxing, it has a funny smell. The smell though is gone within a few days.
We placed our mattress onto a plat form we purchased off amazon. It was $100.00. It is great. Does not squeak or anything. Solid and easy to assemble.
So for $1,000 we had a brand new King bed and frame. That I paid cash for. That btw is important for me to emphasize. I do not believe in debt and I believe firmly in paying cash for things. Esp things like this, that we dont really “need” but know will better our sleeping experience and marriage haha… I would strongly suggest anyone planning to get married, to just invest in a king from the get go. This sized bed would have saved us many frustrations with sleeping together. :) I’m a light sleeper. Travis is not. I cannot tell you how many times Ive kicked him out because I just could not sleep with his face so close to my face. (truth!) I wish we had purchased this bed 12 years ago.
So to those curious how I like the Casper.
Hands down the most amazing mattress we have ever owned.
The only negative thing to result from this….
I do not want to get up in the morning. :)
**Feel free to use this link to get $50.00 off your Casper Bed. -Casper has a great referral program too btw. If someone buys a mattress using your link, you get $50.00 too. The one thing I dont like is they put a CAP on that referral program. So once your coupon is used 5 times, you no longer benefit and get the $50.00 in return. I have actually already hit my max of 5 sales (yall rock!!). So I wont get a penny for at least a year, but at least you all can save $50.00 still, despite my hitting the quota already.
