Sweet Zzz Mattress Review: Sketchy? Pros & CONS


Sometimes my research gets cut short due to really poor experiences shared by owners for a company and its products, and this is one of those cases. I wasted my time creating the basic information first before doing the reseach for some strange reason this time. Never again.

Sweet ZZZ Mattress Pros

Some quick thoughts include:

  1. There is no live chat option. I have found live chat to be very helpful on other websites so this is a strike against.
  2. There is no email address or phone number listed. There is a form to submit for a callback, but this just has the feel of a company hiding behind a website.
  3. There is no address listed on the Contact Us page.
  4. The checkout (shopping cart) has a less professional feel to it compared to most of the competition. The company accepts Amazon and Google pay.
  5. Expect to pay 9% sales tax.
  6. The website claims that there are 3,721 (as of January 30, 2021), yet I cannot find any comments, complaints, or… anything in BBB, Consumer Affairs, Consumer Reports, Reddit, etc. And the big “review” YouTube channels don’t have reviews on this company. Yet 3,721 reviews on sweetzzzmattress.com eh? This is FISHY!

I don’t have a good feeling about this company so it is not a company that I would purchase anything from. Please let me know if you have any experience with them to help me figure them out.

According to Bill at Reddit (a guy whose opinion I trust) states that Sweet Zzz is manufactured by Brooklyn Bedding. So this might be a drop shipping operating. This means it could be a teenager in his/her parent’s basement haha.

You may as well go straight to brooklynbedding.com since they have a massive factory pumping out mattresses for many other companies. So they must be doing something right.

Buying Experience at Sweet Zzz 

Shipment, Delivery, and Returns

Sweet Zzz delivers bed-in-a-box mattresses through the US, with the exception of Hawaii and Alaska, and Canada. Those living in the US get free delivery; however, Canadian residents have to pay a shipping fee of $150.      

Once you place your order, Sweet Zzz ships from its warehouse in 5 to 8 business days. From there, FedEx picks up your shipment and delivers it to your curbside in an additional 2 to 13 days, depending on your ZIP code. You will receive a tracking number via email that allows you to track your shipment. 

White glove services are available with an in-home setup for $149, which seems pretty standard. Plus, you can get your old mattress removed for $199 (Ouch, purchasing both options greatly inflates the cost. How about just do it yourself and use the save money to buy a better mattress!).

In case you don’t like your yours, you can expect a full refund within the 100 days free trial period. 

If you decide to punt it during the trial period they will donate it to the nearest local charity. If a local charity cannot be found the company will pick up the mattress and recycle it.

Warranty and Trial Period 

A 100-days risk-free trial period, which is average at best for a bed-in-a-box company. 

They also have a lifetime warranty that covers all craftsmanship and manufacturing defects. In case of a defect occurrence, the mattress may either be repaired or replaced with a new one.

Although it’s not vital, customers are recommended to purchase a protector as well. That way, you can rest assured no fluids, stains, and bodily fluids harm your mattress. Moreover, it increases its lifespan.  

Conclusion 

Scott’s opinion: Run

Scott Boyd

A semi-retired workaholic in Thailand is a challenge. It is too hot to keep building adobe and earthbag buildings so a new project was needed. I became interested in bed frames after purchasing a bamboo bed frame from a local supplier here and I learned there is little information about them on the Internet. So now I spend my days researching, testing, and reporting my findings to help others while having an occasional beer and istening to 60s and 70s B side rock, blues, and much more.
