latex mattresses: seeking reviews of vendors, experiences w/returns, etc. more inside.
There are lots of threads on MeFi pertaining to (preferably natural, not synthetic) latex mattresses. I've surveyed them, and lots of great information.
If you bought a latex mattress online and went through a return/exchange process
, how was the experience, both mentally and financially? Lots of dealers offer varying combinations of shipping and returns: some have free shipping and paid return, some have free shipping and 1 free exchange, and some offer neither.
(also, if you tried one of the "zoned" products, have you found that to be helpful?)
Basically, where's the happy medium of price, quality, and customer service in this category?
- we're currently sleeping on a crazy plush sealy pillowtop, and i hate it.
- the manufacturers/models we've seen the most talk about on the intertubes:
- FoamSweetFoam - multilayer, configurable, great return policy, free shipping
- Mattresses.net - 2 layer, return policy seems sketchy and potentially frustrating, also seems like it's the same place as LatexMattressCompany.com
- Ikea Sultan Erjford - solid block, seems to be the official latex mattress of metafilter
- Habitat Futons 100% Botanical Latex Mattress - 2 layer, aggravating website, but they seem like a respectable business.
- FoamSource - 2 layer, starting to seem like more of the same, 60 day return policy, free ship, but customer pays return shipping
- FloBeds - the most expensive of the bunch, but very customizable and good return policy
- and more...
