The New Normal – buying a mattress online. 4 reasons to consider a Sleep Awesomeness DUO or FLEX mattress

The friends in the new world of online mattresses are many: Casper, Leesa, Yoga, Tuft, 4, Eve, Bear.  All provide
a mattress at a great value, with much better prices and quality than you will find at the local retailer & way more hassle free to order.  Who wants to spend time in a mattress store anyway?  Awkwardly lying on top with an overly eager salesperson, somewhat knowledgeable, more often not, hovering close by.  

 Free shipping, excellent service, decent in home trials with free returns are the new normal.  We highly recommend you take advantage of the convenience of online mattress shopping – it’s risk free.

We also highly recommend you consider Sleep. Awesomeness for your next mattress…..Read-on.


4 Reasons to buy a Fin

1.  Sleep. Awesomeness has the most comfortable of all the online mattresses. HOORAY! close competition to Casper, but a little bit better.  With over 100,000 Caspers sold, we think a lot of people will find the DUO even more awesome. The DUO has the right amount of hugs, bounce, coolness and support.

2. The DUO and the FLEX have only high quality USA sourced materials.   Latex, cooler gel infused memory foam – fantastic in the comfort department with excellent support.  Keep in mind, some less expensive foam mattress have materials from Asia where quality control and use of chemicals can be an issue.

3.  The DUO and the FLEX are made in a factory that has been hand making mattresses for over 50 years and is independently owned.  We know the owner and his family, giving us access and input into the process.  We work closely with mattress industry experts to design the best possible.  The DUO and the FLEX are hand made to order with American pride and shipped conveniently in 7-10 working days.

4.  We take our customers seriously and over-deliver on our promises.  But we don’t take ourselves too seriously.  We think mattress shopping should be a fun experience, not boring.  Rather than spending money on fancy advertising and celebrities, we use those funds to create the best mattress and delight you with surprises, great prices and amazing service.  We know quality sleep is important to health, productivity and a positive attitude, so most of all we want you to Sleep Happy and Wake Up Happy.


So be a little bit silly with us while you buy a mattress, we will try to keep you entertained.  We think you will experience the best sleep ever on a DUO or FLEX, but if not — lets stay friends, we will take back the mattresses (hopefully finding a charity home) and return your money.
