Cheap Tempurpedic Beds – Possible or Not?
To help take some of the confusion out of buying a new mattress, Cheap Mattress Reviews was founded to provide you with consumer reviews of all the leading mattresses available today.
Tempur-Pedic® provided the original memory foam mattresses. They were the Swedish/Danish manufacturer that took the NASA technology of memory foam, which was used to provide cushioning from the G-forces experienced during take off for shuttle astronauts, played with it and made it suitable for use in bedding and then delivered memory foam mattresses to the world a couple of decades ago.
When the Tempur® material was introduced to the US, the Tempurpedic headquarters were set up in Kentucky and engineering and manufacturing plants were set up in Virginia and New Mexico.
From this point on there were a number of other manufacturers around the world that sprung up and began imitating the Tempur material and you see today that there are many choices of memory foam ranging from cheap mattresses for a few hundred dollars to many thousands of dollars. This should tell you that there are many different qualities and standards of memory foam and while it’s still possible to get great value, cheap Tempurpedic beds, it’s becoming harder for the customer to distinguish between the real thing and the inferior models.
Nowadays Tempurpedic makes mattress toppers, bases, pillows, bed linen, cushions and other accessories, as well as the mattresses, but let’s concentrate on what you can expect from a Tempurpedic mattress set here. Basically they have been able to ward off stiff competition from around the industry by never compromising on the original quality of their memory foam models.
There are 3 collections of Tempurpedic beds to choose from, allowing you to find one that’s right feel and contouring for you. These are the Tempur-Cloud® collection, the Tempur-HD® and the Tempur® collection. While they are variations on the same theme there are some important differences.
The Tempur collection is the original range and features 5 beds ranging in price from $700 for a single up to $2200 starting price for a Double. The mattresses vary in the thicknesses and feels of their comfort layers and you will only really know which one suits your body by trying before you buy – never a bad idea with any mattress!
The Tempur-Cloud Collection has 3 mattresses ranging in starting price from $1100 – $2900. These have more of a pillow-soft feel in their upper layers than the Tempur range and use a slightly more advance Tempur-ES material, which is highly body-conforming and heat regulating.
The Tempur-HD is the top collection, using the highest grade, highest density Tempur material. The 3 mattresses in this range have a starting price ranging from $2500-6500, so you can see they represent quite an investment. The GrandBed® is the model that starts at $6500- in addition to the soft and supportive Tempur-HD feel, it uses silk and cashmere fabrics to cover it and is the height of luxury.
The investment in a Tempurpedic mattress will be sizeable, but it is backed by a 20-year limited warranty for your peace of mind. The prices of their mattresses are the same online as in the stores and they rarely have sales. A few years back the company issued strict guidelines to its retailers so that there is no under-cutting of price or free giveaways to make certain retailers more attractive.
