Mattresses are generally the third-largest investment you make, after your house and your car. You’ll spend roughly 29,200 hours with your mattress, so it’s definitely one purchase that is worth the splurge.
Like cars or houses, mattresses can range from very, very cheap to quite expensive. Unlike houses or cars, your mattress affects your sleep and overall health more than anything else you own. If you wake up on a bad mattress, the resulting back pain, diminished energy, and cognitive impairment you feel affects the quality of your day and everything you do.
As US News & World Report points out, the costs associated with poor sleep are staggering:
Given this reality, choosing the right mattress is one of the most important decisions you’ll make.
The importance of deciding on the right mattress doesn’t mean you need to take out a second mortgage on your house to afford the quality sleep you crave. Naturally, you want to know you’re getting a great product for a fair price.
Consider the following factors that go into the price:
Nearly every mattress brand carries a range of different offerings so you can find something that aligns with your budget. Generally speaking, the average cost for a queen-sized mattress ranges from $500 to $10,000.
According to Michael Magnuson, CEO of independent review site GoodBed.com, “Most likely, you won’t find good materials that can withstand daily uses for under $1,000.” As he explains to Good Housekeeping Magazine, “For something that you’re going to sleep on every day for 10 years, you want materials that are durable and high quality.”
Most queen mattresses that retail for less than $1,000 will not last very long before having issues with dipping or matting together.

“If you buy something online and have issues, you’re going to have a real problem resolving it because the cost of shipping a mattress back is prohibitive,” warns Ron Czarnecki, retired mattress salesman and author of the book Shop for Sleep and Survive the Bite. He says not only is it easier to return or exchange a mattress with a brick-and-mortar store, but it’s also the only way to see if a mattress fits your need since not all product reviews are truthful or in line with your preferences.
