I am thinking of buying a queen Tempur-luxebreeze from Mattress Firm. Are these new, used or refurbished? New is easily understood, but used and refurbished I don’t understand the difference. Can you help? This is a lot of money and would hate to be taken for a ride.
For questions about mattresses in general, check out Tuck.com. They have information, reviews and comparisons of over 100 mattress brands.
Refurbished mattresses cannot be sold in some states. Where allowed, they need to be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected before being repackaged.
I strongly advise against buying “used” mattresses from yard sales or other non-regulated source.
“Used” mattresses sold on regulated websites or stores are in a different category. These are often unused mattresses that were returned in their original packaging or arrived in the warehouse with damaged boxes or packaging.
There really is no reason to buy a used or refurbished mattress. If budget is an issue, Amazon Basics (and other online mattress companies) offer acceptable quality mattresses for under $400 (queen-size).
There are many excellent mattress brands available (for new queen-size mattresses) if you can afford to spend $1000 or more.
