Before I tell you about this week’s giveaway, I want to congratulate the two winners of last week’s giveaway: Erin and Susan. I notified you both via email, and your books will be in the mail this weekend!
After years of talking about it, I finally bought a new bed in September… and I’m serious when I say I think I’m in love with my new mattress. When I lay down, I feel both comfortable and supported. I genuinely look forward to crawling into bed at night, and I wake up in less pain than I used to. I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that a new mattress can be a life changer.
Unfortunately, shopping for one isn’t always a great experience. I have nothing but good things to say about Sleep Country Canada, but I know you can’t find that level of customer service everywhere. If you live in the U.S., however, you may be familiar with one company that is trying to change the way people shop for mattresses: Tuft & Needle. If you haven’t heard of them before, here’s what you need to know.
The idea for Tuft & Needle was born when two software engineers in California were talking about the terrible experiences they’d had buying beds in the past. After deciding they wanted to try and change this, to create a more positive experience for other people, they did some research and discovered one other dirty truth: the crazy markups on prices that were being passed onto consumers.
What the two co-founders, John-Thomas and Daehee, ended up creating was one mattress suitable for all sleeping postures that could be sold at a fraction of the cost. You can read all about the mattress (and view how it’s crafted) on their website, but some of the most notable points are:
- Tuft & Needle’s mattress is the #1 top-rated on Amazon
- There are no gimmicks and no sales tactics (which I love)
- Mattresses are made in the U.S., sold online and get shipped right to your door (to all 50 states, incl. Alaska and Hawaii!)
- You get a 30-night trial and a 7-year warranty, with easy returns
- For every 100 beds they sell, they donate 1 to an underprivileged child in the U.S. (and 95% of their returns are also donated)
- And our friends Joanna and Johnny love theirs!
Daehee and I started chatting at the same time I bought my new bed, and I fell in love with their concept. Even though I didn’t need a mattress myself, Daehee said I could still do a giveaway for my readers in the U.S. Depending on the model and size you need, that’s a value of up to $600. So awesome!
