Addable Mattress purchase 28 Feb 2016 15:56 #1

Hi, Just wanted to leave a note saying THANK YOU for the wealth of down to earth information, far more valuable than reading 1000's of reviews from who knows who.

I started out convinced that a "Bob-O-Pedic" was the best for me and my wife. Then I started doing some research and quickly found Casper, Bed In a Box, and the myriads of others. As I discovered each new site I became convinced "this is the one"... this lasted a while and I became overwhelmed.... until I came here.

Finally you brought some rigor to my search. It seemed to me that I wanted to buy from a seller who agreed with the underground's PPP perspective. So I searched for one that fit my needs.

Ultimately, Addable resonated with me the most. Their almost comically frank FAQ as well as the endorsement here of having solid materials pushed me over the edge. There were probably 5 other Underground places that I could have purchased from and been satisfied (Novos and Brooklyn were the next two in line) with, but Addable seemed to really buck the car salesman vibe I've had from almost all mattress places I looked into. They seem like the carmax of the mattress world.

Carmax is fine with me, I don't need a new Porsche,

So thanks again, I'll send everyone I know who's looking for a new mattress here first.

Hi kingjamez,

Welcome ... and I'm glad you found us.

I switched your post into a new topic of its own with a more appropriate title so that it will be easier for others to find that are considering an Addable mattress as well.

Thanks also for sharing your comments and feedback and I completely agree with you that their transparency about all areas of their business is very refreshing.

Most importantly ... congratulations on your new mattress :).

You certainly made a great quality/value choice and I'm looking forward to any updates you have the chance to share once you've received it and have had the chance to sleep on it.

Phoenix

PS: I appreciate your kind comments as well!

Hi Phoenix,
Thanks! I will absolutely update on the process and my experiences after receiving it and after sleeping on it for a while. I'll be sure to include all sorts of subjective descriptions ;)

For future reference of our experience: We bought the King Addable Mattess and will be putting it on top of a Zinus Sleep Master My Euro Wooden Slat Foundation
www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00M16A2JU/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?qid=1456717055&sr=8-1&pi=SY200_QL40&keywords=zinus+myeuro&dpPl=1&dpID=41X8sMc1GVL&ref=plSrch&th=1&psc=1

I chose that base because it's supports are split into thrids instead of halves like most 2 twin style king box springs / bases are. In my mind doing it in thirds more uniformly supports the mattress and doesn't have a "hard spot" down the middle of the foam. I could be overthinking this, it wouldn't be the first time.

The one immediate little downside is that Addable says it'll take 10-14 BUSINESS days to arrive. That's quite the difference from Bed In A Box which could deliver in 2 business days from roughly the same distance away.

Generally, I'd bet that when one has decided they need a new mattress, they want it quickly. I'm in a position not to care that much, but it could make a difference in deciding on a mattress in a crowded market. Addable's prices are so low though, that fast shipping can't possibly be built into the price so it's a trade off I suppose.

While it's certainly an attractive price ... I would be somewhat cautious with these frames because they aren't particularly well built or strong and the legs can bend and the slats are quite thin and have some flex and can sometimes break relatively easily (see the one and two star reviews) so for some people they may not last very long. Hopefully it will work well for you and I'll be interested in your comments once you receive it as well.

Thanks for the words of warning. I'll watch out for those issues. I did read the poor reviews and am prepared to manufacture new wood slats if needed in my woodshop. If the metal joints aren't good, I can Tig weld them stronger. If it is still awful, I'll send it back to Amazon and come here for a suggestion for replacement.

Realize that not everybody is willing to work on the base to make it better, they just buy expecting it to work. That's valid, but I like to tinker and I may get the chance with the cheap frame :)

Well, my initial fear of it taking 2-3 weeks for the mattress to arrive is no longer an issue. I ordered on Sunday and Addable shipped on Wednesday. FedEx says it will arrive on Friday so less than a week from ordering to delivery for me, very reasonable.

Hi kingjamez,

Thanks for the update.

I guess that's what you could call "under promising and over delivering" which is certainly better than the other way around :)
