Our History

The idea for GoodBed originated out of a frustrating shopping experience for our founder and his wife, who were recently married and setting out to find their first “real” mattress. Confused by the overwhelming sea of choices that varied in price by thousands of dollars, they found it nearly impossible to compare the many options they found across different stores, and even harder to determine which would be best for them. Salespeople were low on knowledge and high on pressure, and there was nowhere to turn for credible information about this important investment. Based on this experience, in 2008, Michael set out to create an independent and personalized guide that would help people find the perfect bed for them.

 

Our Mission

Our mission is to create a better way to shop for mattresses and sleep products that makes it easier for people to find and buy the perfect bed.

 

What We Believe

  • Good sleep is critically important to good health, and good sleep starts with having the right bed.
  • No mattress is a good match for all body types and sleeper preferences – thus, consumers need personalized information in order to find the right product for their unique needs and preferences.
  • Consumers deserve unbiased information to find quality products at fair prices from trustworthy sellers.
  • Bringing more transparency to the mattress industry benefits consumers and ultimately helps good companies as well.

 

How We Help

GoodBed's unique approach combines expertise + data + technology in order to provide the most trustworthy shopping guidance for our readers.

 

Mattress Match Quiz

The selection of mattresses at any one store (even a large national chain) tends to include only a fraction of your choices, and often excludes the best choices for you.  So to find the right mattress, you need to search across stores – both the ones in your area and the ones from whom you can buy online.

GoodBed’s advanced search technology provides the best way to search across brands and stores (both online and offline) to see mattress options that best match your personal needs and preferences.  Powered by our Mattress Match Quiz, GoodBed makes this process fast and easy for consumers, allowing you to spend less time researching products that aren't good for you, and to learn much more about the products that are – leading to a much better purchase decision in the end.

Start by taking this simple quiz and our intelligent matching algorithm will instantly search across all known products and stores to show you a list of mattresses that best meet your requirements, along with info about the stores where you can buy them.

 

Expert Product Reviews & Product Line Overviews

Name a popular online model, and we’ll show you an in-depth expert mattress review of it. Read or watch, it’s your choice. We’ve subjected dozens of mattresses from Casper to Saatva to our standard roster of tests, evaluating them for pressure relief, motion isolation, edge support, and a dozen other important need and preference factors, including value. We cut through manufacturer jargon and marketing hype to tell you where a bed excels, and where it doesn’t. The attributes of each bed get classified consistently on our rating scales, so you can compare them apples to apples.

We also provide extensive product line overviews for traditional mattress brands, digging under the covers to explain in plain English what’s actually different (without the mattress marketing lingo) about the countless models you’ll see in local stores.

Unbiased Ratings & Reviews from Mattress Owners Like You

In addition to our hands-on expert reviews, GoodBed is also the largest consumer mattress review destination, with over a quarter million unbiased mattress owner ratings and reviews. Even more importantly, GoodBed is the only place where each owner also provides key information about themselves (sleep positions, comfort preferences, etc.) – this provides critical context for each owner review, and helps you find ratings and reviews from people who are most similar to you. Get the scoop from real owners on comfort, durability, customer service, and more.
