We bought Tempur-Pedic mattresses based on our in-store experience. After a couple of years, one mattress failed and we submitted a claim for replacement within the 10-year warranty period. Tempur-Pedic's only criteria is based on measurements of sag of the mattress surface when the mattress is not being used, with no consideration for lack of support during use of the mattress.
Our claim and subsequent appeal were immediately rejected with no consideration for the failure of their product. Their warranty gives no consideration to performance of the mattress, only to arbitrary measurements when the mattress is not in use. The mattress fails when I lay on the bed, sinking to more than half of the depth of the mattress, at the center of the mattress, with the head and foot remaining with no sag. I weigh only 170 lbs, so my weight is not a factor... the mattress is quite simply a very poor product. There must be better options, which I will soon be exploring.

The mattress is sagging and causing back pain for my wife and I. Their method for proving the sagging is not scientific at all. Just a quarter and a broomstick. Since the fabric on top of the bed is tight, you cannot see the sagging using that method. I'll be looking at some of their much cheaper competitors for my next bed.

10 months after purchasing medium adapt mattress we have a major sag/dip in one side of the bed. If you’re on the good side and go too far into the middle, it’s like you’re rolling over into a hole. 10 year warranty is a joke as they want you to send pictures with a quarter and stick for their gap measurement, with no pressure being applied. Never mind the back pain and no sleep and the $3000 you spent for a mattress that’s suppose to support your body. Waste of money, couldn’t last a year. Warranty Claim was denied.

I purchased a Tempur Pedic Pro Adapt from a Mattress Firm in my area last year. After 8 months I noticed it started to develop tears in the foam. I contacted the store and they said I needed to go through Tempur and use the warranty for replacement. FINE. It took MONTHS to get things squared away with Tempur. They wanted a ton of pictures, emails back and forth, proof of purchase…, more than once. Finally they give me a code to find a replacement mattress. I was told by the rep that could go back through the store I purchased in, to make another selection. Or go through their site. Why would I want to go back to the same product I don’t trust? I go back to the store… oh “sorry, but this code only allows you to shop through the tempur online store.”
I go to the Tempur store….. What A Joke. I get 3 whole choices of mattresses!! I Don’t Want To Go Back To Another Foam Mattress!! I Don’t Trust Them!!! They refuse to give a refund. This was a once in a lifetime purchase. Between the frame and the mattress it was almost $6k. I’m not a rich person, and trusted all the HYPE about this company and their product. My Mistake!! They box you in and you don’t give any choices except for what THEY want to give you. AND you CANNOT get your money back!!! I thought (boy was I wrong) I was buying the thoroughbred of mattresses, and ended up with a true dud. And they made a ** of me to top it off.
Do. Not. Trust. This Company!!! Their site shows ONLY all the top 5stars reviews, and they pitch the others. The more I dig, the more angry consumers I find when it comes to Tempur-Pedic. They make it very difficult to file for your warranty …, and they refuse refunds, and won’t allow you to have a range of other types of mattresses to chose from. Tempur also owns/ produces Sterns and Foster /Sealy…, but will not allow you to chose from any of those mattresses. I contacted the BBB…, their policy is they cannot do anything if a company refuses to work with you…, Well…, TEMPUR REFUSED to work with my situation. It’s about the big companies.. never mind the consumers anymore. All I asked for is my money back.. I’ll go elsewhere…. But they refused, and insist I take another foam bed. I Do. Not. Want. Another.

We purchased a Tempur-Pedic adapt mattress in 2018. After only two years it felt like the mattress had a hump in the middle and was starting to have sagging where you lay. I only weigh 115 pounds and I feel like I’m sinking into bottom, I submitted a claim and was denied. Now it is almost 5 years since we’ve had the mattress and the holes that we’re lying in are ridiculous, again we are not large people. We have spun this mattress around every four months to try to make it last and it feels like it’s 15 years old, I can’t even sleep in it anymore because we’re waking up stiff, sore, and with headaches. I submitted another warranty claim and was denied again. Every picture that I sent them was not good enough.
I’ve submitted pictures three times and none of them were good enough. They want to see the sagging, but it only occurs while you’re lying on it, so they’ve got you there. I told them that I wanted an inspector to come out and look at it and they wanted to charge me $150 for him to look at it and they still couldn’t guarantee that my claim would be accepted. This company has so many loopholes for their warranty, because they never intend to give it to you in the first place, I am about ready to junk my $2000 mattress and I just purchased a box mattress, which I have another one on another bed, for $400 which feels way better than this Tempur-Pedic. Customer service reps are rude, unhelpful and ignorant. This was the worst $2000 investment that I have ever made. Lesson learned. Stay far away from this company!

I have had no problem with my Tempur-Contour-Supreme Tempur-Pedic mattress until about six years of ownership. Unfortunately, even though the mattress was properly supported, the mattress developed a deep sag over 2 inches deep and several square feet wide. The warranty claim I requested was declined because there was a stain on the mattress cover. Not the bed, the cover. This stain is completely unrelated to the mattress failure and didn’t even soak through to the mattress itself. I believe Tempur-Pedic does not honor their warranties and I suspect they approve very few claims. It’s a decent mattress but I would not expect it to last ten years, and please understand that their warranty is a scam. The terms of the warranty are also written such that there is very little to be done about the fraudulent marketing tool they call a warranty. Please do no support this incredibly dishonest company.

If you want a good mattress at a fair price with the security of a warranty, do not buy Tempur-Pedic#. I paid almost $3,000 for a twin XL mattress ProAdapt medium firm mattress from a so called authorized dealer. There was a short trial period and the mattress was very hard. When I tried to return or exchange it within 60 days, a 20% fee was required, but when purchased I was guaranteed a full refund! I was high-pressured to buy the luxury firm mattress for another $ 600. When I objected, I was told they could match the price for another returned mattress. I was informed the warranty would still be good, but three months later I found out the warranty would not apply.
The Tempur material is very stiff until it warms up. Who has one hour to fall asleep? When the material warms up, then there is no support and a large sag in a narrow twin size mattress. Then it is HOT! I used to sleep straight through the night and now it takes a long time to fall asleep and I wake up at least 4-6 times per night. This is the most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept on including a lot of hotel stays for business and personal travel.
Within 3 months the mattress sagged by more than one inch and is extremely hard with little support. I have back pain, neck pain and muscle spasms. Tempur-Pedic cares about their branding, marketing and profits. They do not care about their clients or their sleep quality. Instead of sleeping on my split king bed, I have to sleep in the guest room (on a bamboo bed, queen size bed that cost only $300, which is 90% less! I cannot believe I have to shop for and buy another mattress and feel taken advantage of. Do not fall for the hype or high pressure sales tactics when you can get a much better mattress for far less. Do not buy Tempur-Pedic# if you want a good mattress with a reasonable trial period and real warranty! I wish I read reviews rather than fall for hype before purchasing Tempur-Pedic#

Worst mattress we have ever owned. Have had it only nine years, it was virtually top of-the-line. The mattress came with a twenty-five year warranty and all documents state full replacement if less than ten years. Warranty department is now third-party group and only knows how to send out form letters and denied our claim based on made-up story of "stains" on a mattress that has been covered with water proof mattress cover its whole life. After nearly forty pictures (you can only send pics because they will not inspect in person) they denied completely the claim and we have to sleep in a $6k mattress that continuously makes you roll into the middle of the bed because it has collapsed over an inch.

The topper itself is excellent but I ordered the wrong size due in part to my error and in part to Tempur-Pedic's website design. I contacted the company immediately upon receipt of the wrong size and my call was transferred to their escalation team. Even though the item was unused and in new condition with the original packaging, the company refused to make a return. I am out $265.23 and because the topper was needed for surgery recovery in a hospital bed, I still had to order the correct size.
Bottom line is find and READ their return policy before ordering anything. They give no warning that items in your shopping cart are not returnable even though their retailers offer returns. Don't buy directly from Tempur-Pedic if there is any question, especially on high ticket items like power bed frames. Purchase through one of their retailers or Amazon instead. The only thing they take returns on is the mattresses. Absolutely terrible experience. Would give zero stars if I could.

I bought a Tempur- Pedic mattress in January 2021. We tried the mattress at City Furniture and we liked it. We knew it was overpriced but we want the most comfortable bed for us.

After all these months, we are still not sleeping comfortably. We noticed the mattress was sagging and filed a warranty claim with Tempur -Pedic. Now they are stating they can not cover my warranty because my bed frame is the problem. How can my bed frame be the problem if I had a mattress before Tempur-Pedic and it did not have any problem? When I bought the warranty City Furniture told me it was the best warranty and they cover anything. I feel I have been robbed.

I have had this Tempur-Pedic adjustable bed for 4 months and had to file a warranty claim. Tempur Pedic uses 3rd Party Contractors to provide warranty service and these contractors are not professional nor respectful. The problem was electrical on their adjustable split bed pedestal. On one side the massage motor would not turn off and then had to remain be unplugged until repairs could be completed. Tempur-Pedic was contacted and they stated that the replacement parts would be sent to a local Tech who would arrange a time to install the parts. This is where things went sideways and the 3rd Party demanded that the bed frame to include headboard, baseboard and side boards be removed prior to the repair. Are they not the Technicians who work daily on beds expect the clients to do the heavy lifting and doing the hard stuff so they don't have too?
My expectation is Technicians should access by removing parts of the frame necessary to do their repairs. I do not have to tools nor the health to remove and re-install the bed frame for the Techs. Tempur-Pedic uses the excuse that they don't want to do any damage so these Techs don't remove the frames. The Tech insisted that Tempur had sent myself email explaining this issue which they did not. In addition, had I know that Tempur had this policy I would not have purchase their product. So don't expect a quality service experience but the opposite with Tempur 3rd Party Techs. Also get good at removing and installing bed frames if you have warranty issue because their Techs don't that.

My wife and I have owned a Tempurpedic Adapt mattress for a little over 3 years. We bought the mattress in LA, and moved with it a year and a half ago to our new home in Georgia. For the past year or so we have been dealing with some abnormal pits in the mattress. We kept turning the mattress to try and work them out, but when my parents visited and stayed in our bed, only to complain about how it made them feel, we decided to see about the warranty. The warranty process is all online, requires typical information, and photos of the mattress.
One thing to note, pits on a foam mattress can be deceiving. The mattress almost always rests at the proper shape, but when you lay on it the level with which you sink is unmanageable. The middle of the bed is firm as well, or ours was, and pushes people off the sides into the pits (holding on for dear life not to fall on the floor).
Regardless we did the full process, only to have a rep tell us that because of a stain on the mattress (we have a toddler) it was clear that the mattress had "physical abuse," and told us a mattress cover would have helped. How a mattress cover would help pits from forming on a foam mattress is beyond my understanding.
All that to be told, for us to spend over 2k on a mattress to have it unsleepable in 3 years and get one message back without having someone at least come take a look is not a great experience. I reached out to TP on twitter privately to make a plea. They looked into it... for 5 minutes. Then told us they couldn't do anything. I've had better customer care for appliances that cost a fraction of a mattress. At least reps come out to check on the damage in most circumstances. Based on the expense, and the short period we had the mattress. I expected better. Easiest decision never to go back to a Tempurpedic.

The true dimension for both pillows is 19 inches in length and 2.0 inches in height on lower size (very low) and 3.0 on higher side. Both pillows had plenty of time to inflate and they don’t get any bigger. I called customer service twice and was told that the pillows are not returnable. After I sent them photos of the true dimensions with a tape measure including what are listed on pillow tags, Amy H. in customer service told me that they “can only replace with like model product” and would not exchange for medium size pillows regardless of the dimensions for small pillows being smaller than what are listed online and on the pillow tags.
I told her that I didn’t want to exchange for other small pillows with wrong dimensions and then still have to deal with nonreturnable policy. Customer service then asked me to contact their warranty department. Sandy C. in Warranty department told me that her team would not exchange or replace a product unless “Any physical flaw in the product that causes the material to split or crack despite normal usage.” Since the dimension defect does not meet this guideline, then warranty department would not replace my pillows.

Sealy/Tempur-Pedic hates the military and veterans by illegally discriminating against them by actually charging them more money for less of a product/service bundle. Tempur-Pedic says they support the military and veterans by providing their mattresses to the Military Exchanges (more or less the military box department store). Under that logic, they support Mattress Firm and Mattress Factory. But also, nearly every product found at Target or Walmart can be found generally found at the Military Exchange. So how does Tempur-Pedi actually support the military?
But let's look at the facts: the Exchange price is nearly equal to the MSRP value on Tempur-Pedic's website. However, Tempur-Pedic and their other partners are normally running discounts of some sort making purchasing through the Military Exchange more costly. Secondly, Tempur-Pedic does not provide the military or veterans with their 90-sleep trial that everyone else gets even those who buy through other 3rd-Party vendors like Matress Firm. Thirdly, the maximum financing that the Military Exchange generally provides is 18 months using their credit card at standard credit card rates instead of the 24, 36, 48, or 60 months 0% financing provided by Tempur-Pedic or their Third Party Vendors (e.g., Mattress Firm).
Lastly, almost all their competitors--whether we are talking Sleep Number, GhostBed, Purple, Casper, or others in the bedding industry--offer veteran discounts from 15% on the low end to 45% on the high end. No one should support a business that discriminates against military and veterans by charging them more for inferior products and services than the general population.

Deceptive marketing practices - No returns and exchanges. I bought 2 king-sized TEMPUR-Cloud Breeze Dual Cooling - the top-of-the-line pillows. My wife tried it for one day and went back to her old pillow. I used it for a week and as time went on my neck and shoulders began to ache by day 7. At first, the pillow feels really comfortable. In about 5 minutes it depresses into a rock-like surface with very little support.
So I reached out to customer service to ask about returns and their response, "due to the personal nature of pillows, we don't accept returns or exchanges." I called support, I went back and forth with them via calls and emails, and it was explained that this is a clause deep in their return policy. It's a bit misleading as they claim a 90-day satisfaction guarantee but that is only on mattresses. Buy at your own risk. Just know if you want to shell out $150 for a pillow from Tempur-Pedic it's yours forever.

The reason they give for not accepting returns on pillows is because they are "used as personal items". For hygienic reasons, I can understand. But if the pillow is still sealed in the plastic packaging, then it was NOT used as a personal item. And yet they would not let me return it. They don't care about customers and just want your money, using deceptive practices to do so.
The visual guide for choosing the right size pillow is deceptive, which is why I bought it and immediately realized it would not work for me once I received it in the mail. The visual guide says to measure neck to shoulder to find the right size, anyone would assume that is to determine the right length of the pillow. Yet the size of the pillow does not refer to the length, but to the HEIGHT/THICKNESS of the pillow. My dad fits the "Large" size, yet it is too high for him because the guide is incorrect. I will be recommending everyone to avoid Tempur-Pedic. You cannot trust the guides, and they refuse to let you return it even if it's in brand new, never used condition. My whole family uses Tempur-Pedic mattresses and pillows in all our houses, but we will no longer purchase from this company.

I purchased a Tempur-Pedic mattress about five years ago. As of today is badly sagging in two different spots. One is so bad you physically feel the springs below it the foam is completely failing. Supposedly this mattress has a ten year warranty so I got into contact with the exchange department and sent in my claim. It was instantly denied apparently because there is a stain from a spilled drink on the corner of the bed. Despite this stain being nowhere near the sagging parts and having no damage at all because of the spills they instantly denied my claim. Then they justified it saying the bed was clearly "physically abused" and "improperly stored" a couple of made up assumptions they just threw in there.
They also claim there are "burn" marks in there, which there are not. This is all coming from pictures I sent them by the way I have no idea how they came to this belief without actually seeing the mattress in person. I did ask them to send someone to inspect the mattress, as per their exchange guidelines, and they again completely refused to even consider it.
So three big warnings for anyone buying tempur-pedic beds. The beds can start to sag badly to the point of being unusable within five years. The warranty is a lie it has no warranty. Finally, their exchange department isn't an "exchange" department. They do not exist to help you exchange your bed or fulfill the warranty. They are there to deny claims in any and every way they can find or just make up and write you off completely.
