The conundrum of buying a new mattress, how do we go about it. And it is a conundrum let’s face it, most of us have been there, we need a new mattress and don’t know where to start, there is so much choice out there that it really makes it as difficult a choice as buying a car.
With Tuft & Needle’s process using only 2 layers of foam and the Casper mattress being a hybrid foam construction having 4 layers, these very different styles of manufacture give us the great choices.
After we establish which companies are best to buy from and that can take a while, we then get down to the nitty-gritty of working out which is best for us and we do our comparison checks what does one offer us, that the other doesn’t? So, the research begins again.
Both Casper and Tuft & Needle have similar covers. The covers are simple, usually white, a bit stretchy, but have a nice feel to them. Both of them are thin & soft. From a functionality standpoint, the thinness of the cover is the most important factor. Having a thin cover helps to facilitate the airflow in the mattress. However, it has been identified that the Tuft and Needle cover is extremely thin and you can see the foam materials through the cover, so if your sheets are thin to then you could see the foam through them as well and this could be an aesthetic issue for some.
Comparing the all-important firmness, of these two brands of mattress the Tuft & Needle and Casper are so much similar. Research has shown that some users have rated the Tuft and Needle at a 6 out of 10 on- firmness, where the Casper is a 7 out of 10.
Casper’s two-layer system has that softer feel, because of the 2 layers of foam, this gives you that wonderful comforting welcome, like a big hug and when you have had a big day, who doesn’t want that, Casper is the softer of the two mattresses.
Tuft and Needle in direct comparison give you firmness and on top of the world feeling, with the combined for layers of latex and memory foam. If you have back issues or you just like that firmness under you supporting your body, then this one is for you.
The Casper mattress usually sells for about $800-$850 for a Queen-size & the Tuft and Needle sells for about $600-$650, however, both companies offer free shipping. With such a difference in price, we really need to be aware of what we are buying, is it really what we want, or is the extra $250 just too off-putting to us.
Both companies do offer the customer a 100% guarantee, so maybe you could try both in the comfort of your own bedroom, why not take advantage of the trial period and then you can decide for yourself, if the extra $250 is worth it, that is what I would do, in fact I wish that a lot of companies offered this for their consumers, I find it refreshing that companies give their customers this brilliant option, after all a mattress is an investment that you will or should have for many years.
Which is The Best? Tuft and Needle or Casper
The best way to choose the right mattress you are to work out what is most important-to-you, what are your needs. The dilemma is comparing the manufacturer’s themselves, what do they offer you? As consumers’ we have the right to see just what our hard-earned dollars will buy us and what after sale service companies will give us if things don’t go quite right after the sale.
What are the differences between these two very popular companies? Both companies have similar mattress covers, customer support, after sale warranties, shipping and trial period times and refund policies, so when you get down to brass tacks so to speak the questions to be asked are, do you want a soft or firm mattress and how much do you want to pay for it.
Our personal budgets pay a huge part in our purchase of any item for the home, but when it comes to mattresses, I personally have found that sometimes paying for quality is a good thing. Usually, a company with good, sound reviews is a better place to buy from than an unknown company. Most of the time companies with good customer reputations, fight hard to keep their customer base happy and do all that they can to make your sales experience and beyond a good one, in fact, they stand behind the product they sell so to speak.
Now that we have investigated what we want in a mattress, let us look at the manufacturers and see what they offer us as consumers. Both Tuft & Needle and Casper are well known for outstanding customer service, they both offer a similar trial, warranty, and refund policies. So why would someone choose one over the other? One simple answer is the price point, the Tuft and Needle mattress is about $250 cheaper than the Casper.
In conclusion, the right mattress to buy is completely dependent on several factors, what is best-for-you, what do you prefer in a mattress, price point – what is your budget, affordability is a big factor, how long do you intend to keep the mattress, if it is for a long time like most of us, then perhaps it would be wiser to spend a bit more and pay for quality.Read Full Casper Mattress Review Read Full Tuft and Needle Mattress Review
