Quality Budget Mattresses (under $600)

September 22, 2015

Let’s be honest, there are two types of mattress shoppers out there: the type who looks at comfort, features, and reviews first, and the type who looks at the price tag first. I would fall into the latter category, and there’s nothing to be ashamed of in that. I can sleep just fine on about any mattress, couch, or thickly carpeted floor, so I don’t feel like I need to spend a lot on a mattress. My wife, on the other hand, would fall into the former category; She starts researching a new mattress by going straight to the Tempur-Pedic/memory foam sections because she knows what kind of mattress she wants, rather than sorting by price. There is no right or wrong method here, but it is generally safer to be like my wife, and buy a mattress that gives you the best night’s sleep rather than one that’s a good deal. Because after all, with the quality of mattresses these days, a 10-year warranty is pretty standard, so even a top-of-the-line model that costs $3,650 would only cost you $1 a night over the course of its lifetime. When you look at it that way, it’s hard to justify bad sleep with saving a few pennies a day. But don’t fret budget shoppers! With the mattresses we present in this category, you can get quality sleep at budget-friendly prices. Our experts have selected some of the models that they consider the very best value, so if you want to keep your mattress budget under a mere $600, we think you can still get great quality from these excellent models.


Here you will find the same quality brands you know and trust, with their low-cost offerings that focus on the basics for quality comfort and leave out the expensive bells and whistles. You will find representative models from Restonic, Beautyrest, Sealy Posturepedic, Corsicana, Simmons Beautysleep, Serta Perfect Sleeper Gel Memory Foam, and more! Most come backed by 10-year warranties (there was a 5-year and a 15-year mixed in there as well), so for 3,650 nights, you are paying less than $0.17 each for quality sleep. No matter what type of mattress shopper you are, you’ve gotta love a deal like that!


Shop these selections for some of the very best budget mattresses, and browse our site for plenty of other great deals as well. Remember, US-Mattress guarantees the lowest price on any mattress, so you can shop confidently without spending hours comparing prices, and know you are getting the best price available anywhere, online or in-store.

Brand Feature: Simmons

June 30, 2015

Simmons is the 3rd leading mattress brand in America, and the oldest of the top 3. In fact, the Simmons Bedding Company is one of the oldest of its kind in the U.S. Founded in 1870, Simmons began by manufacturing wooden telegraph insulators and cheese boxes. In payment of a debt, Simmons received a patent for a woven-wire bedspring, and the rest is history. By 1891, Simmons was the largest company of its type in the world.


Today, Simmons has four primary collections on the market: Beautyrest, Beautysleep, Comforpedic, and CURV. Simmons Beautyrest is, of course, the flagship brand that is largely responsible for Simmons success. In fact, it is hard to say “Simmons” without “Beautyrest” just rolling off the tongue. Simmons Beautyrest was first introduced 90 years ago, and relies on many of the same principals to this day. Simmons was the first to discover a way to automate coiling and encasing wires, known as pocketed coils, and this system has survived ever since in the Beautyrest line.

Other notable advances in mattress technology by Simmons are the Hide-A-Bed sofa bed, the first Queen and King size beds produced in the U.S., and establishing a research and development facility based on pioneering studies of human sleep sponsored by Simmons. Simmons continued its success as other companies like the younger Serta and Sealy brands threw their hats into the ring.

Simmons had another big success in the 1990s with their advertising campaign that used a bowling ball being dropped on a Beautyrest mattress to demonstrate the motion reduction and motion separation capabilities of their design: the same design from 1925! This advertising campaign was so popular it was revived in 2006.

Since then, Simmons continues to push forward and offer a wide selection of mattresses at different price points and with different designs. CURV is their most recent offering: a budget-friendly memory foam mattress that offers consumers a chance to experience the benefits of memory foam without breaking the bank. If they enjoy a CURV mattress and want to upgrade, or are looking for something a little different, Comforpedic is Simmons full-fledged memory foam collection. Meanwhile the Beautyrest line is still going strong after nearly a century, and has even began to branch off into other lines such as Beautyrest Recharge and Beautyrest Black. These branches take the Beautyrest technology in a different direction, with Recharge focusing on re-energizing sleep and Black targeting the highest quality luxury in the market today. And for sleepers on a budget, the Beautysleep line is always there with great value mattresses at affordable prices.

So whatever it is you are looking for, from good value economical mattresses to top-of-the-line luxury, innerspring or memory foam, you can count on Simmons to have a quality offering at a competitive price.


The New Jefferys Bay Mattress

April 9, 2015

Simmons Beautyrest Recharge Hybrid Liberty Point Luxury Firm Mattress

Every now and then, mattress companies make changes to their collections or even to specific mattresses. While it’s not always very noticeable, sometimes these changes can be confusing, especially if not every consumer is aware of the change.

One recent, subtle change from Simmons is the name change for the Jefferys Bay Luxury Firm Mattress. It’s not an earth-shattering change by any means, but it can be confusing to customers who receive a word-of-mouth recommendation for this specific model, and then can’t find it when they search for it. The Jefferys Bay has been renamed as the Hybrid Tracy Firm Mattress.

Just as it did when it was still the Jefferys Bay, the Tracy contains three different kinds of comfort padding layers: AirCool Memory Foam, AirCool Memory Foam with Micro Gel Touch, and Dynamic Response Memory Foam. These all help relieve pressure so that you sleep more restfully. Its individually wrapped coil system gives it better contouring ability, and even allows you to use it on an adjustable base.

Plus, it has a Comfort Scale of 3, which makes it a firm mattress. So you get good pressure relief and a solid, supportive feel, which is an excellent combination for anyone who needs something that feels a little harder than your average plush mattress.

It may not seem like a big deal if you weren’t looking for the Jefferys Bay mattress, but even so, the knowledge could come in handy. You never know.

What is CertiPUR-US®?

February 26, 2015


Memory foam is a popular product in many of today’s mattress and bedding products — and even with its exceptional support benefits, there are concerns about its manufacture and health effects.

This is where CertiPUR-US® comes in. This is a program that allows companies to show customers that their memory foam products meet specific environmental and health standards. By applying for certification, a company can display the CertiPUR-US® seal in photos of their products so that customers know that they’re purchasing from a company that cares about lessening the possible risks of memory foam.

Any company that wishes to display CertiPUR-US® certification makes their products without the following:

  • Ozone depleters
  • PBDE flame retardants
  • Mercury, lead, and other heavy metals
  • Formaldehyde
  • Phthalates regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission

Such products also have low Volatile Organic Compound emissions to maintain the quality of indoor air.

The guidelines are stringent, so any company that wishes to apply must be willing to meet extremely high standards in order to feature the CertiPUR-US® seal. Not only have these requirements been developed by leading environmentalists, chemists, research scientists, and industry leaders, but they’re also considered to be living documents — that is, they can be revised and interpreted according to new and relevant research and results. This allows CertiPUR-US® to remain current so that you, the consumer, can continue to trust their name and their standards.

US-Mattress carries numerous brands that boast CertiPUR-US® certification — including mattress companies Serta, Simmons, and Spring Air, as well as the furniture and linens brands Klaussner, Jackson Furniture, and Malouf. Check us out today to find healthy, eco-friendly memory foam products at fantastic prices!

What’s That Smell?

November 25, 2014

Serta iComfort Savant Everfeel Plush Mattress

So you’ve purchased a new mattress. You’ve made a good investment, you’re excited to sleep better — but wait.

What’s that smell?

Your mattress has a chemical or mildewy smell, and you’re not sure why. Yeah, it’s brand new, but the mattresses at the store didn’t smell like this. The mattress is experiencing off-gassing, which is what happens when you take a new mattress out of its packaging. Reliable mattress companies like Serta, Sealy, and Simmons manufacture their mattresses in factories, where the mattresses are vacuum-sealed within minutes of completion. They have very little time to air out, so when you unwrap your new mattress, it’s going to air out in your home.

This isn’t as much of a problem during the warmer months, when you have your windows open — but in the winter months, it can take up to several weeks for the chemical smell to dissipate. Memory foam mattresses especially are known for a strong off-gassing odor. However, don’t let this deter you. This is entirely natural for any and every new mattress, since it has been sealed almost immediately to make sure that it stays clean and undamaged.

The best thing to do is to wait it out. This may not seem like the most helpful advice, but if you spray anything on your mattress, you run the risk of ruining your warranty. There are some natural air deodorizers, such as white vinegar and cut onions, which you can place in bowls around your bedroom to help soak up the smell.

This “new mattress” smell is nothing to worry about. It may not be as nice as a “new car” smell, but remember — your old mattress had to air out, as did the one you tried out at the store. If you do want to contact someone about the typical length of time for off-gassing, the manufacturer is your best source.

Simmons Beautyrest Recharge World Class Plush Mattress Set

February 13, 2014


Are you looking for the Simmons Beautyrest Recharge World Class Plush Mattress Set? Head to US-Mattress, and get to know the Simmons Beautyrest Recharge World Class Phillipsburg Plush! It’s the exact same mattress as the World Class Plush, only with a different name – and a better price!

even cheaper than Groupon

Soothing Comfort Materials

The Simmons Beautyrest Phillipsburg Plush is a premium innerspring mattress that is designed for those who want to experience medium-soft comfort from high quality materials and an advanced coil system. It has a rating of 6 on the US-Mattress Comfort Scale, so it’s ideal for those who enjoy a mattress that feels soft, but with a strong underlying support. Like the Simmons Beautyrest Recharge World Class Plush, the Phillipsburg gets its softness from cutting edge comfort materials that are designed to provide superior pressure relief while enabling the mattress to retain its original level of comfort for a longer period of time than models that use traditional foams. Each comfort material used in the World Class series is CertiPUR-US certified to meet the strictest industry standards. AirCool Memory Foam has an open celled design that prevents the foam from retaining heat and allows it to respond more quickly, eliminating the excess warmth and “quicksand” feeling that many sleepers experience with traditional memory foam. TruTemp Gel Memory Foam is a combination of premium memory foam and phase change material that soothes pressure points to reduce tossing and turning and also helps to lengthen the comfort life of the mattress.

Advanced Support

The Beautyrest Recharge World Class Phillipsburg Plush delivers strong support through the Beautyrest Super Pocketed Coil System, which contains hundreds of individually pocketed coils that contour to the body to provide targeted support to the areas that need it most. This coil system also does an excellent job of diminishing the transfer of motion between sleeping partners, so when one partner moves or gets out of bed, the other will remain undisturbed. This is an especially valuable feature for light sleepers and those who share a bed with a restless partner. The Phillipsburg Plush also comes equipped with the Ventilated AirCool BeautyEdge Foam Encasement, which is a 3-inch foam perimeter that ensures a uniform level of comfort and support across every inch of the sleep surface. With this edge support system, sleepers can lie all the way to the edge of the mattress without losing support or rolling out of bed, which is very beneficial for couples who share a full or queen size mattress. With all of the advanced materials in this mattress, it’s no surprise that it comes backed by a 25-year warranty, allowing you to enjoy nights of restful, recharging sleep for many years to come.

Why does our mattress have a different name?

Did you know that manufacturers assign mattresses with different names depending on where they’re sold? This helps to level the playing field for retailers, but it also creates a challenge for shoppers who are trying to find the best deal. That’s why US-Mattress is here to help! We want to make sure that you find your ideal mattress at the best price possible, so we’re more than happy to help you match any mattress you’ve found in another store.
