This is a comparison between the SleepTrain Mattress Centers and SleepWell Specialty Mattresses. Choosing the right mattress is an important decision. Not only is it a substantial investment, but it’s also a choice that will impact your quality of sleep, energy levels, mood, and overall health. It’s certainly not a decision to be made lightly. That’s why it’s important to spend some time researching and comparing mattresses before making such a potentially life-changing purchase. In an effort to help you along the path to a good night’s sleep and a healthier lifestyle, we’ve taken the liberty of doing some of your homework for you.
Here at SleepWell, we realize that you have choices when it comes to where to buy your mattress and what type of mattress you purchase. Thus, we’re providing you with a thorough analysis of the mattresses we provide at SleepWell Specialty Mattresses as they compare to our competitors’ mattresses at SleepTrain Mattress Centers. Although we hope to earn your business by educating you about our products as well as the products of our competitors, all of the information presented here is 100% accurate and has been fact-checked through extensive research. Despite how much we love our products and the pride we have in them, we’ve attempted to be objective and informative in our analysis. We don’t expect you to take our word for it, though. In fact, we invite you to do your own research to not only validate the comparison we’ve provided you with, but also to determine the very best mattress for you.
SleepTrain Mattress Brands
SleepTrain Mattress Centers offer the traditional mattress brands found at your typical Sacramento mattress stores. These brands include well-known names like Sealy, Serta, Simmons, and Stearns &Foster. SleepTrain also offers the high-end brand, Tempur-Pedic.
The major difference in mattress brands offered by SleepTrain vs. SleepWell is the overall type of mattress offered. While SleepTrain only offers standard, conventional mattresses that have been around for decades, SleepWell offers the most innovative luxury mattresses made of the finest materials as well as all-natural, organic mattresses. Our brands include Natura, NexGel, and Organicpedic.
SleepTrain offers two different lines of Sealy mattresses, the Sealy Brand and Sealy Posturepedic. The Sealy Brand mattress is marketed as a “budget” mattress. Although it does come with twice-tempered innerspring coils to prevent mattress sagging, it is recommended for “good sleepers” who according to the SleepTrain website, don’t need the luxury of a superior mattress.
At SleepWell, we believe that everyone deserves the best night’s sleep possible. Even our most affordable mattresses are made with premium materials and designed to enhance your natural sleeping habits.
SleepTrain’s Sealy Posturepedic Collection offers a significantly better mattress than the Sealy brand and comes with titanium innersprings for support and memory foam. However, it is still a traditional mattress that can be found at virtually any mattress store in the area.
The only Serta collection that SleepTrain offers is the high-end Serta iComfort Collection. All four products in this collection feature Serta’s new Cool Action Gel Memory foam which supposedly creates a more pleasant sleep experience through the support of memory foam combined with the cooling sensation of the gel.
Here at SleepWell, we offer a comparable mattress collection, the NexGel Mattress Solution Series. Like the Serta iComfort Collection, Nexgel utilizes the healing power of gel; however, NexGel’s mattresses are made of superior materials and feature an intelligent design, providing just the right amount of support for each area of the body. These features make the NexGel mattress a better choice than the Serta iComfort offered by SleepTrain.
SleepTrain Carries Many Traditional Mattresses
SleepTrain’s largest line of mattresses is the Simmons brand which includes six different collections ranging from the basic Beautysleep Collection to the luxury Beautyrest NxG and Beautyrest Black collections. Simmons brand mattresses are known for their pocketed coil springs which enable the mattress to conform to your body and prevent unnecessary movement. The more expensive collections also feature memory foam and Simmons’ signature Triton foundation which provides enhanced support.
SleepTrain also offers a variety of Stearns & Foster mattresses ranging from their traditional collection to the elite Stearns & Foster Lux Estate Collection. Stearns & Foster mattresses feature individually wrapped coils for increased comfort and support as well as their patented Indulge Quilt comprised of fibers and memory foam for a body-cradling experience. Their mattresses also come with a LTD foundation consisting of a strong boxspring for added stability.
Although a few of the mattresses featured in SleepTrain’s Simmons and Stearns & Foster collections would no doubt provide a comfortable night’s rest, they simply can’t compare to the wide array of luxury mattresses offered by SleepWell which offer a truly unique sleep experience. Our sleep specialists will conduct a sleep analysis to help you choose the best mattress for your unique sleeping habits and positions. We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all sales approach such as those used by conventional mattress stores.
The Price Difference: How Does SleepTrain Compare?
Since SleepTrain only advertises prices for their Serta and Tempur-Pedic collections on their website, it’s difficult to compare the two mattress stores in terms of price. The one thing SleepTrain does advertise quite heavily is their low-price guarantee. According to their site, if you find a comparable mattress for less at another store, they will not only meet but beat the price by discounting it another five percent. This guarantee is good for up to one hundred days after you make the purchase.
Unfortunately for SleepTrain customers, they will be hard-pressed to find a “comparable” mattress at SleepWell. The only brand of mattress both stores offer is the Tempur-Pedic brand. We could not consider any of our other mattresses “comparable” as they far exceed the brands SleepTrain offers in terms of quality of materials, friendliness to the environment, and safety. Whereas SleepTrain offers a wealth of low-quality mattresses with only a few luxury mattresses to choose from, our store features only the best of the best.
The Organic Difference: Does SleepTrain Measure Up?
If you’re looking for a high-quality, organically certified mattress, you won’t find it at SleepTrain. A search of their website reveals that the only thing “organic” SleepTrain offers is organic sheets.
On the other hand, many of the mattresses at SleepWell are made with the finest all-natural, organic materials available. Our organic mattresses come with organic certifications assuring you that they are indeed completely organic, chemical-free, and manufactured in a certified organic mattress factory. These mattresses undergo three levels of quality assurance, ensuring that they are the absolute safest, most environmentally-friendly sleep solution for you and your family.
Manufacturing Process Compared: SleepTrain Vs. SleepWell
SleepTrain does not inform visitors to their website about how their mattresses are manufactured or even where they come from. At SleepWell, our organic mattresses are made right here in California, specifically in Yuba City which is less than an hour’s drive from our Sacramento store. That means our shipping expenses are very low in comparison to other mattress retailers, so there’s no need to upcharge our customers.
These high-quality mattresses are produced in special factories which ban any outside chemicals from entering the facility; they even go so far as to restrict their employees from wearing fragrances or using fabric softeners when washing their work clothes. All of these safeguards are put in place to ensure that the mattresses they produce are completely safe for your family to sleep on.
Does SleepTrain Guarantee Their Products?
SleepTrain offers information on there website regarding guarantees on their mattresses and the limited manufacturer warranties that come standard with name-brand mattresses.
Although SleepTrain does list a money-back guarantee on their website, it is followed by a caveat that advises customers to see the store for full details. Supposedly, shoppers can get an exchange or refund for up to 100 days if they’re not completely satisfied with their purchase. Unfortunately, since the full details regarding this guarantee aren’t disclosed, it’s difficult to ascertain what, if any, exceptions are associated with the guarantee.
In comparison, SleepWell offers a non-conditional, 90-day comfort guarantee which allows customers to try out their new mattress for a full three months. In addition, all of SleepWell’s products come with a 20-year warranty.
Since mattress shopping is such an important process, it’s crucial that you spend some time comparing not only the mattresses themselves, but the retailers you choose to do business with. Why waste your time with a mattress franchise that offers few choices in terms of luxury mattresses? Instead, choose a retailer that specializes in high-end mattresses that offer true comfort. If you feel that SleepWell is the choice for you, we’d be honored to provide you with a high-quality mattress that exceeds your expectations for quality and comfort over SleepTrain mattresses.
