BUYERS BEWARE!!!! First mattress purchased started sagging. We returned the mattress and upgraded to a Tempur-pedic. Paid $1300 total for the Tempur-pedic and now it is sagging. The salesman had told us we would be stuck with the Tempur-pedic brand when we exchanged. He failed to mention 8 yrs of warranty would be voided. We called to have the defective Tempur-pedic exchanged and that's when we were informed our warranty was voided. The salesman was a complete jerk and now we are stuck with junk. Both my boyfriend and myself wake up in pain every day! I will never buy anything from Sleep Outfitter's again.
Salesman was smooth talking. He was extremely arrogant. I think he would say anything to make a sale. My 72 year old husband and I are both fighting cancer. We wanted a Tempur-Pedic with an adjustable base. I told the pushy salesman over and over and over that I did not think it would fit our antique bed. Without actually listening to my reasons that I didn’t think it could work. He was quick to assure me it would work. Today was delivery day and I was correct. The delivery men were superb and they knew it would not work before unloading it. I called the know-it-all salesman who immediately became a rude disrespectful smart aleck who blamed it all on me. I think we could still use the Tempur-Pedic mattress on a regular foundation.
We spent over $4,000 on the mattress and base. I wish I knew if a regular Tempur-Pedic foundation would fit our antique bed. We are getting a refund, but I wish the smart aleck salesman would have listened and let me ask if the regular foundation would work. We are so disappointed. We have furniture moved so we could get the mattress into the bedroom. At our age and health, we have to find someone to put the furniture back into place. And now we have nothing for all our trouble. It would have perfect if we had been offered the regular base And even better to have been offered a discount on a mattress and foundation that would have worked. All we have is the frustration in trying to buy a $4000 mattress.
It was refreshing to walk into a store and not be hassled or feel pushed into buying something more than what I was looking for. Ben took the time to listen to us and actually help us find the mattress we wanted and at the price we wanted, which the prices are amazing compared to other tempurpedic retailers. I would recommend Sleep Outfitter's in Lewisburg WV to anyone looking for a new bed. Great experience and felt good to be treated like a person instead of a dollar sign walking through the door.
I ordered a bed foundation at sleepoutfitters.com and they arrived used and damaged. I contacted them and Jackie rudely informed me that they came new and that I had to send pics to prove that they were used. I did. Now I have to wait to see what they will do if anything. I'll never order from them again. You're not even allowed to return items to the store. The store employees and online agents are extremely rude and unprofessional. They refuse to help. It is all about selling used/damaged items to the consumer for money. Beware of them! I warn you, beware of this store!!! I will be going to BBB. I just don't see a resolution being made here.
Their warranty means nothing. Mattress is terrible, I want to upgrade, pay hundreds more for better mattress, base was damaged. They won’t do anything for me. Regret this purchase, would not recommend to anyone!
I purchased a Sealy Kelburn II on 31 JAN 2019. My in-store experience went very well. I felt well informed about the mattress and what to expect. I have slept on the mattress twice since then. It is too soon to tell about the quality and sleep experience. I was told the delivery days are Mondays and Fridays. I was told my mattress would be delivered on 08 FEB 2019. I worked the night of the 7th, so I set my mattress set outside that night before leaving for work. I have been robbed before, so I do not allow strangers into my house any longer. It rained. My mattress was not delivered as I was told.
I called around 12:30 that Friday to find out when it would be delivered. The salesperson told me he would check and call me back in 20-30 minutes. At 5:30 p.m. I called him back. I was told it was on backorder and they could deliver it on Monday. I then asked why I was not informed about the change, the salesperson at the store said he did not know the answer to that question. I slept on the couch for the weekend.
Monday morning, 11 FEB 2019 at approximately 0830 I called customer service to ask why I had not been informed of the change. The person with whom I spoke stated that was always the date. She repeated that line to me 5 times. She then connected me to her supervisor where I left a message about my experience and to get to the bottom of the wrong delivery date. I was not contacted again. This is now Thursday morning 14 FEB 2019. The delivery date printed on my receipt is for 31 DEC 2049. I guess I was lucky it didn't take 30 YEARS. Because of their lack of communication between store and warehouse, I strongly advise people to shop elsewhere.
I bought a Tempurpedic mattress about 6 weeks ago. Spent a LOT. My back pain is worse; when I called and asked about returning it, they said they don’t do returns. Talked to the store, then called corporate. They could care less. Told me I am basically ‘stuck’ with it unless I want to get a different mattress. The woman at the store told me I couldn’t return it because they couldn’t resell it. My question is, if I exchange it, what would they do with it? Resell it, I’m sure. I was NEVER told I couldn’t return it when making the purchase. Corporate's response was ‘I don’t know why you weren’t told that.’ It’s a racket; I’ll never shop there again, and would encourage others to not shop there either. I did research, but wish I had read these reviews before purchasing. Their business practices are shady at best.
I have had a time with Sleep Outfitter's. The first time we went to the Paducah location a blonde girl I think her name is Bri "helped" us but really just pointed out her favorite mattress and told us how expensive the Tempurs were. So we thought we decided on a mattress (without her help since she just stared at us) and it was HORRIBLE. She didn't even write up the ticket like we wanted when we left, so I had to drive another hour to go back and tell Doug that we wanted the purchase. Side note: I had called for two days straight and no answer. We finally got one of the Sealy medium firm Posturepedic with ALL the help from Doug and it made my back hurt every single day.
It was an awful experience. So when we went back, apparently she was our associate that got the sale, even though she did absolutely NOTHING for us. So Doug helped us to pick out this mattress after describing my back pain, and he suggested an adjustable base. It's not amazing like I thought it would be for the money, but oh well. I had no choice, either pay the $120 exchange fee for a new mattress or have chronic back pain for life. So we sucked it up. And even though Doug STILL did all the work, she got the commision. Doug is a wonderful salesman, but this blonde needs to find a different specialty because selling is not one of her strong suits. I will not be returned to Sleep Outfitter's for any more purchases.
I'll keep this brief. After spending $6500 on a mattress and adjustable base the base was delivered w/ mold or something on it. The base was missing feet. It was supposed to be new. They tell me it's used. I told them to take their used equipment and leave. They had to reassemble my bed. Since it was a Sleep Number, it had deflated and now I cannot get it to inflate. I couldn't be more unhappy or more untrusting of a company that would sell floor models for new. Stay away from these crooks!!!
When the $700 Pillowtop Queen Mattress was delivered, it felt firm and great first day. By the next day after one night's sleep, it formed a dip in the middle - noticeable enough you could kneel by the mattress and look across it and see the dip - I called, and they asked me to wait a week to see if it smooths out. It was getting worse by the time I called back - With two people on it, we would literally roll towards the center towards each other and it felt like the mattress I was replacing that was 15 years old with squeaky bouncy effect.
By the time, they sent a replacement (it was back ordered so took a few weeks), the first mattress was cavernous in the middle. Same with the second as the first - great first time I laid on it, noticeably softened in middle by next day. Terrible back pain from trying to hold myself to one side and not roll towards center when second person was on it. Called within week, and I will say the salesperson was very helpful in trying to get it switched out but she encouraged me to switch to a foam mattress and especially pushed towards the Tempurpedic which is $300 higher plus delivery fee equalling another $413(as a discounted floor model which means tons of people have been trying it since 2014 and only partial warranty left, which has to be handled with Tempurpedic who has horrible ratings, reviews online). The other option she proposed was a $300 higher hybrid or a clearance foam mattress that had no protection, warranty or return options. I called customer service to inform them I'm not okay with any of the other options. The mattress is so bad now, less than one month after delivery, that the side I have been sleeping on has softened to the point my body lays in an s curve on it. If this mattress were "firm" like it was sold to me as and felt like it did in the store or first day, I Despite sending me two mattresses in a row that were completely defective, customer service informed me I do not have just returning it for a refund as an option without paying a 10% stocking fee. Was told by sales people after this second defective mattress that if I want a good mattress, I need to spend another $400.If that's the case, I should have been told that from the get go. Why would I want to spend more on a mattress from a company that is trapping people with poor products and making money off of the returns? New mattresses shouldn't degrade like this/feel like used mattresses being pawned off on you when spending upwards of 1k. When I brought the problem up to my son, he relayed that his best friend just had the same issue and we discovered he bought it from the same store. Pretty sure this company is just taking advantage of people using credit line and selling them junk. Do yourself a favor and trust the reviews online about this company.

I purchased a mattress from the Hendersonville TN store. My sales person, Victoria **, provided excellent service and was very knowledgeable on mattresses, of course I did my homework on buying a mattress before going there. She talk to me about what I was looking for in a mattress. Once I gave her this info, she recommended the perfect mattress for me and I am 100 percent satisfied.
Very unsatisfactory experience with Sleep Outfitters. Purchased a mattress set and knew immediately it was not going to work for my wife and I. They insist you sleep on it for 30 days. I have had several shoulder surgeries and during the first night I woke up screaming in pain 3 times. Contacted the store and they said they can't do an exchange or return until 30 days. So we stored the mattress set in a spare bedroom and went back to using our old mattress. They also claimed that if we return the mattress set, they'll charge a 10% return fee, NOT what the official corporate website had listed. Only after emailing the corporate office did I get confirmation that a $150 return fee be charged. Seems they change the conditions when they print your invoice for delivery.
Other conditions in the fine print show they really don't want to honor their exchange or return policy. For example, if you don't buy their mattress cover, as soon as the original shipping plastic is removed. All exchanges/returns are nullified. In our case, the delivery personnel removed the plastic while it was still on the truck in the driveway! Glad we purchased their mattress cover. Then the final beef. On the 30th day, I called the store to arrange for return pickup. Talked to Brenda on 1/29/18 and 1/30/18 and pickup was confirmed for 2/3/18. We sat at home all day waiting. No calls, no one showed. I called the store at 1700 and they informed me the pickup was moved to 2/6/18. Nice, they could have informed me.
I should also mention Sleep Outfitters is part of a conglomerate of mattress retailers; Sleep Outfitter's and Mattress Warehouse are joined at the hip - part of Innovative Mattress Solutions (IMS). With this experience, I will NEVER set foot in their stores again and will be sure to warn as many as possible of their tactics. They aren't honest at all.
I want to thank Richard ** (the store manager there in Etown). My wife and myself have had back trouble and went to Richard to find one after shopping for the best value and explained that we needed something to last that was comfortable and that was in our budget and he fixed us up very nicely. I would highly recommend anybody that needed a good deal on a mattress with a polite and professional salesman to go see Richard @ Sleep Outfitters in Elizabethtown.
Bought a California king mattress. Was told it would be 72 x 84. We get the bed and tag says 72 x 83. We measure the bed and it's 72 x 81 1/2. I call the store, they say the size can vary within 1 inch. I was no math genius but 84-81 1/2 still seems way more than 1 inch. They con us to come in and buy a Tempur-Pedic that is factory cut, still 72 x 82. STILL 2 INCHES SHORT!!! I wouldn't care but if your husband is 6' 6" (78" long standing) the extra length can make a huge difference. When called, the customer service people are smart ** if it was just us, maybe I would think it was just a fluke but the same had happened to my parents. Over it!!!
I said in store "you mean there isn't a company on this planet that makes longer beds? I feel sorry for Shaq." The response was "you can get one if you want it custom made." Well mister smarty pants salesman, you may have seen that as an opportunity to sell a custom made bed. Shame shame!!! You lost your commission and I hope your job, you insensitive display of matter.
Purchased base and mattress king bed from Dickson, TN in June 2017. Unfortunately the base has not worked since day one. I was told by ** that since my bed was sitting on hardwood floor I would need to purchase coasters. I informed Mr. ** before I purchased the bed, I had hardwood floors. I also tried to get in touch with ** several times to discuss the issue with the base and the request to have a different mattress, albeit he would take more than 1 week, several times to respond. At one time 3 weeks plus went by before I had to call him and I quote "oh I thought this was already taken care of".
I have been given the runaround for three months now and I still have no base that is working correctly and since Mr. ** took so long to get "their ducks in a row", so to speak, I can't return my original mattress that I do not want. This has been the worst experience I have ever had and will continue my quest to have my monies returned. I will contact social media and a lawyer regarding the LEMON LAW very soon.
Just bought bed and mattress at 1228 Eads Parkway in Lawrenceburg, In. The associate ** was very helpful in finding just what I needed and could afford. The Sealy mattress is extremely comfortable and the adjustable bed just what I will need after my surgery. A very pleasant experience. Thank You.
Thank you ** for his assistance in purchasing the bed in the price range I was looking for. He is very knowledgeable and understanding what I was looking for. The Store located is 4172 Buckeye Parkway I Grove City Ohio 43123.
This is my first purchase at Sleep Outfitter's and it was pleasant, indeed. After reviewing their newspaper advertisement and seeing several items that met my needs, my wife and I decided to make an in-store visit. Every item advertised was in-stock and on display for evaluation. I found the sleep set I wanted to purchase, told the sales person all the items and services I needed and committed to purchase if their best combined out the door price was quoted "Using a Very Sharp Pencil." The price was better than I expected, I said, "SOLD" and was in and out of the store, very happy. All within a period of 45 minutes. A very pleasant buying experience and recommend the Cool Springs Store and staff without reservation.
Contacted company regarding complaint of coil twanging noise within 6 months of purchase, they sent delivery guys out, they measured depth of foam impression instead of listening to my complaint of coil twanging noise near head of mattress, company sent me a letter with service code TILLC13618, which did not address the issue, side stepped to foam impression again. Apparently since can't see coils that are undone there is no claim.
I decided to buy a Sealy bed on 7/9/16 (Green Hills outlet, Nashville, TN) when the Sleep Outfitter's salesman assured me that it contains a high-quality Stearns & Foster coil system. But when the bed arrived, it came without any literature - no pamphlet, brochure, nothing to confirm the existence of the Stearns & Foster coils. Furthermore, I could not locate any confirmation of the coil system on the Sleep Outfitter's website, nor could clerks I phoned at the shop. When I spoke to the original salesman, he suggested that I should just take his word for it. Of course, mattress companies are notorious for sketchy practices such as specialized product names that are specific to only their store (so customers are unable to comparison shop elsewhere), but to sell expensive merchandise with only a verbal accounting is taking things to a whole new low, as far as I'm concerned.
Doesn't even the cheapest merchandise at Wal-mart come with a booklet? Do mattress companies put themselves above the most common responsibilities of commerce? After speaking to a customer service rep at Sleep Outfitter's, that was indeed my impression. He basically told me mattress companies don't provide more than a tag.
My husband and I were in a bed and due to our medical conditions we needed a medical bed that adjusts to meet our needs. We did some shopping around and the best deal we could find was with Sleep Outfitter's. To start with, we should never had been sold a bed with this thickness for an adjustable bed. In addition, when adjusted it causes such unevenness in the bed which caused my husband to fall out of the bed not once but 6 times. When trying to get the bed returned, the manager at the Hendersonville store, she talked down me and my family, was rude, and the worst person that I have EVER dealt with in any purchasing situation I have ever dealt with. To top it off, I when dealing with customer service, they did not return my call after leaving multiple messages.
Finally, I spoke with the director of Customer Service with Sleep Outfitter's and after requesting to return the bed to our medical situation and the nature of the bed, he stated that we could return the bed, however, we were stuck with mechanical structure at a cost of $2,000. When trying to explain how my husband was hurt due to the design of the bed, he told me that I was an adult and I should have read the fine print. If considering purchasing a bed from Sleep Outfitter's, reconsider, and know their policy.
My husband and I visited the store in Nicholasville, Ky to receive personalized advice on the best mattress for us based on our sleeping habits. We ended up purchasing a Sealy mattress only to discover later that same evening, the exact same mattress was listed on the Sleep Outfitter's website at almost half the price we were charged at the store. My husband called the store manager who directed him to the Customer Service toll free line as he was unable to give credits at the store level. After holding with CS for more than 10 minutes, calling back several times, a CS Rep supposedly was going to process a partial refund for the difference in the purchase price vs. the sale price. We asked for an email confirmation of this transaction. It has now been almost 24 hours later and no email and no credit to the credit card. This company seems to deal in knowing deceitfulness and we haven't even taken delivery of the mattress yet.
We purchased a Sealy (not pillow top) and it sank in the middle within 90 days. They came out and looked at and said it was defective and we could get a replacement. We got the same style and within 30 days this one also sank in the middle. We ask for a refund but they wouldn't do that just exchange for another mattress. I wouldn't ever recommend them!
I recently went in to purchase a mattress. While bringing the mattress out to my truck which was directly in front of the doors, the sales associate dragged the mattress across the sidewalk to my vehicle while I assisted in guiding it. When lifted and put on the truck. My husband and I noticed the plastic torn along the bottom side where it was dragged and two large horizontal tears on the mattress with dirt around it. When I brought it up and pointed out the damage they told me to go inside and speak to the manager. The woman who was working said she was the district manager and that their policy is once it is out of the door it's not their problem anymore.
I contacted customer service while there and they had the manager refund my money. But before she did, she made us (the customer) bring her mattress back in.
The manager's name is Crystal **. HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE! Will never shop from them again. Location Bowling Green, KY.
We bought a mattress, when they delivered it was the wrong one so they replaced it, then the new mattress got a sink hole so they replaced it with another. NOT A QUEEN so they replace again and now 3 yrs later this mattress has A SINK HOLE. This is a Stearns and Foster. NOT a cheap mattress. This company is PATHETIC and we are now stuck with a $1000.00 piece of JUNK... Please help.
The advertisement regarding a free TV with the purchase of a Tempur-Pedic mattress and adjustable bed wasn't necessarily true. I purchased the floor model Tempur-Pedic mattress and adjustable bed and when we asked about the free TV, we were told that it didn't apply to that specific one. Spent over $2,000. Although there are multiple advertisements about the different deals, there is one specific one that states "free TV with the purchase of a Tempur-Pedic mattress and adjustable bed." Not that big of a deal but they should honor their advertisements.
During the purchase of a new mattress set for my son's bedroom, the sales representative went quickly through the 120 Night Comfort Promise, the 120 Day Value Promise, and the Refund Policy, stating we had 45 days. What they failed to mention was that "All refunds are subject to a transportation fee of $150, this fee must be paid in full prior to merchandise pickup."
This information was given to me the next morning after I brought the mattresses back to the store. I was told they couldn't accept anything back at the store that has been in anyone's house and that it has to go back to the warehouse. Even then, I had to be a complete jerk to get them to let me deliver it myself to the warehouse which was 45 minutes further up the road and pay the fuel costs myself.
I do not blame the salesperson who is just trying to make a living off of commission, or even the manager for doing what they are told to do, but I do blame to the company's "Once you buy it, it's yours" policy. I was forced to be a complete jerk to the manager in order to get a full refund less than 20 hours after we purchased the set. I don't like being that way towards other people, especially folks who are just trying to make a living the best way they can. But I had to be. $150 is a lot of money to a family when both parents are going back to college full time.
Well this is the update on a previous review I made concerning my mattress..... I am happy to report that I was approved to get a new set because my set was defective! We were also told that the mattress that we purchased was made for guest room sleeping...REALLY..... NO ONE TOLD US THAT PREVIOUSLY... Anyway if you have to clean a slightly soiled mattress...try TILEX. It cleans not only the bathroom shower, I used it to remove a tough stain on my white pants.
We purchased a Queen Udream Elara mattress set earlier this year and it has body impressions, buckle and sags. Upon contacting CS they had an automated voice system leave a message on my cell with my appointment time and not actually confirming that I would be available for the morning. The whole Customer Service experience sucks! I finally get my mattress inspected and the result was the letter stating that the mattress was "unsanitary". There was a small stain(body sweat), No urine or blood stain. I said to the CSR.. Sleeping on the mattress without visible stains, body fluid is ok to return? Why are they taking it back to anywhere anyway? Are they refurbishing these mattress materials? I am not understanding this warranty. And I was told that if I removed the small stain I could call to have someone else come out again....Really.... Well guess what I am going to do just that. See photo of mattress below. No visible fluid or stains. Will update later on results...
Hendersonville, TN. Sleep Outfitters. We purchased our mattress from the Hendersonville, TN. location Dec. 2013 for our Guest Bedroom to use on the rare occasions that we have guests. Today is Aug. 21, 2014 and there is a very noticeable, very uncomfortable 1.5" sag/depression in the middle of this mattress - which has NOT been slept on regularly. Two people CANNOT sleep comfortably and will "Roll" to the center during the night. We did purchase the mandatory "Stain Guard" protector to fulfill the Return/Warranty condition as stated and required by the Sales assoc./Manager Michelle **.
I will now pursue my Return at this store and report my experience back to this site and others, Facebook, etc... I hope they stand behind their product and I do not have an experience similar to what some have written. Product failure is undesirable but, understandable sometimes. Customer Service Failure is never understandable or acceptable.
I bought a mattress and within 6 months it had a 4 1/2 inch dip in it. I called and they sent someone out to look at it and they said it had stains on it. Hmm, I bought their mattress cover to ever keep that from happening. Anyway, I called again because I knew there were no stains on it and, a month later, they sent someone out. By this time, the dip was 6 inches and a spring popped out of the top. They gave me a credit as they did not sell this mattress anymore because it was poorly made, but they told me I could buy one similar and it would only be $400 more. Now this was not a set. They only said they would replace the mattress.
Anyway, I am probably going to small claims court, because Kevin ** keeps sending me messages that don't make any sense. He said that he is sorry. I feel this way. Really! Then so something, he also said that a comparable mattress would be the Karolina and it would be around the same price, so I called Sleep Outfitters and they have never heard of a Karolina mattress. I would never recommend Sleep Outfitters as they go to another mattress warehouse and if you have a problem, there is really no one to talk with. Also, I looked at other complaints and it seems they use the stain excuse a lot(!) and the dips in them seem to be pretty prevalent also.
