Best Mattress Overall

Short on time? Here's some key information:

Consumers searching for a foam-based bed with easy, quick delivery, excellent customer reviews and a longer warranty and trial period will love GhostBed mattresses.

GhostBed uses high-quality, cooling materials in all its mattresses.

Materials and Quality

Are bed-in-a-box mattresses like GhostBed's high quality? The answer is yes!

In fact, the materials we use at GhostBed are so high quality that we offer one of the best warranties in the business. (More on that soon.)

Here's what you can expect when you pull your GhostBed out of the box:

All GhostBed mattresses are built with a high-density foam base layer to reduce compression. After all, the base layer of your mattress is like the foundation of your house—so it must be top tier.

We top the base foam of our mattresses with additional layers like springs, gel memory foam or latex (depending on the model you choose) for the ideal balance of support and comfort. Customers report that “back pain and overall quality of sleep has drastically improved” after switching to a GhostBed.

We also use cooling technology in every mattress, including proprietary materials in our Luxury and Premium collections. The signature Ghost Ice cover, for example, is designed with a phase-change material that draws heat away from your body.

Tempur-Pedic uses cooling fibers and phase change materials in their TEMPUR-Breeze® mattresses with mixed results. One customer shared they made multiple trips to their doctor due to profuse sweating at night—only to find that the mattress was to blame.

All of GhostBed's mattresses are vacuum sealed and delivered in convenient boxes.

How to Choose a Bed-in-a-Box Without Trying It First

If it's your first time purchasing a bed-in-a-box (or if you opt for Tempur-Pedic's bed-in-a-bag), it's understandable if you feel hesitant to order a mattress without trying it first.

However, you may be surprised to find that going in-store to trial a mattress doesn't always yield the best results. The customer reviews on Tempur-Pedic's website are full of folks who loved the feel of a bed in-store and hated it once it was delivered to their home.

One customer shared that their Tempur-Pedic “feels nothing like what [they] experienced in the store, and is creating much more discomfort than any mattress [they] have owned.”

That's why at GhostBed, we have a fleet of sleep experts ready to help you find the best mattress for you. You can even book a consultation with one right now. We're also available to contact via email, phone call, and chat.

Our mattress quiz is also designed to find you the perfect mattress, so there are no unpleasant surprises when you take it out of the box. Only cooling comfort.

Tempur-Pedic and GhostBed both ask you to let your body adjust to your new mattress before deciding if you'd like to keep it.

There's a 30-day waiting period for both GhostBed and Tempur-Pedic. After this trial period, both companies will allow you to return your mattress without any fees if you're confident it's not right for you.

GhostBed has an industry-leading warranty, providing 20 years of coverage for its Classic mattress and 25 years for all other mattresses in the line.
