BedJet Valentine’s Day Sale Helps Couples Get Better Sleep for Less

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

BedJet bed fan is one of the best ways you can get better sleep if you sleep with someone who prefers a different temperature than you do. If you get too hot or cold at night to the point that both of you are miserable, the BedJet may be the answer.

bedjet v2 saleIt works fast and best of all you can customize each side of the bed with the Dual Zone Cloud Sheet. Essentially it has pockets in the duvet-like sheet. The BedJet fills the pocket with cooler or warmer air (or no air) that is blown into the sheet. Each side of the bed can have a BedJet running or just one side.

While you may not think of a BedJet bed fan as romantic, many husbands buy one for their wife so they can both sleep better. Night sweats and hot flashes can interfere with sleep. So an investment in a BedJet means each person can have the bed set to the temperature they prefer.

Eight Pod

New Eight Sleep Mattress Adjusts to Your Body Temperature

By | Mattress, Sleep Industry News | No Comments

Eight Mattress is already the most high tech mattress we know. Today they announced a new mattress that will automatically adjust to your body temperature. It’s called the Eight Sleep Pod. It’s not a nap pod or something that encloses over you. This high tech mattress uses liquid embedded into the layers to regulate the temperature.

We haven’t seen anything like it!

The company says they used 43 million hours of sleep data, insights from over 30,000 sleepers and says they collaborated with 5 leading sleep researchers to come up with the Pod.

Eight Sleep Pod

Pod tracks your sleep and learns the right temperature for you. Features personalized temperature regulation on each side of the bed. Temperatures can range between 55° and 115°F so it’s ideal for any climate.

The Pod is the only bed that dynamically adjusts its temperature to be perfect for you all night long. It monitors your sleep patterns, learns your temperature preferences and cools and heats to keep you comfortable.

There are sensors in the 4 layers of foam and it’s a liquid based thermoelectric system.

During the night the bed keeps you at thermoneutral or to your settings. Best of all, if you sleep with someone, both the dynamic temperature and biometric tracking work independently for each side of the bed. That means one side can be cooled (for example, if she has menopausal symptoms such as night sweats) and the other side could be neutral (so he doesn’t freeze while she tries to stay comfortable).

In addition to helping you sleep by getting the temperature just right, the Pod can act as a thermo alarm to wake you up gradually and naturally, without the sound of an alarm. It gradually cools the bed in the morning and can adjust the temperature to help you fall asleep at night.

All smart mattresses Eight sells come with an app to track:

– Sleep Stages
– Heart Rate
– Respiration

Eight uses the data to give you tips to help improve your sleep.

Connects to your smart home through Amazon Echo, Google Home, Nest, and Philips Hue.

New Casper Glow Night Light Uses Tech to Help you Sleep

By | Best Sleep, Sleep Products | No Comments

We know Casper for their #1 Consumer Reports rated mattress but they have a bigger dream in mind than just selling beds. They are coming up with new tech to help you sleep and Casper Glow nightlight is their first sleep tech product.

Sleep research and marketing has always been at the front of what Casper does, but unlike Eight or other high tech solutions, Casper keeps their tech simple. They use the data they gather from customer research to develop elegant products that do a few things very well.

The company Airbnb’d a big Victorian house in San Francisco to conduct sleep experiments to see how technology could help improve sleep. Just like the sun gradually gets dim or lighter when it’s time to sleep or wake up, we’re affected by light. This is a process that triggers reactions like the release of melatonin to signal it’s time to fall asleep.

This video shows you how Glow works.

 

Casper Glow Nightlight

The new Casper Glow does more than just glow, yet it also draws a line at not being fussy or complex. Glow won’t track your sleep, record your snoring or give you any data. It doesn’t connect to your Alexa or anything really. Rather it aims to help you fall asleep and wake up.

Put simply, the Glow gradually dims at night to help you fall asleep, and then gradually gets brighter when it’s time to wake up. It has sensors that react to the light in the room.

Light is key to sleep and Glow helps you set the light in your room. I already have a Phillips Hue light in my room that I can dim or brighten without having to wire anything. I like that you can set and forget it or use the manual controls.

Glow is small and cordless. It’s a little like a lantern that you can take with you when you get up to go to the bathroom or check on the kids (something you can’t do with your lamp).

Who Will Love Glow?

For me, I’d set the light to fade up until bedtime as a signal that it’s time to turn everything off, stop talking and go to sleep. In the morning, the sun usually wakes me up but during the darker winter months it could gently wake you.

Set Glow between 15 minutes and 1.5 hours through the app, or use the simple actions to operate it without the app.  In fact, you touch or rotate Glow to dim or brighten the light or use the app to turn it on/off.

I’d use the Glow on vacations because it’s lightweight, easy to carry and doesn’t take up a lot of space. At just over 5 inches tall it fits in your hand but a handle to make bringing it places easier. I’d take Glow camping and yes, put one on my nightstand for its minimalistic design and the quality of the light.

For kids, the selling point is how you don’t have to read anything, press any buttons or do anything confusing. Operate it with touch – simple! It could make an effective gentle alarm clock if your kids wake up with light.

Older adults who have trouble reading at night or operating buttons or grasping something small could operate the Glow intuitively.

If space is limited or you like an uncluttered bedroom, it will fit on a small nightstand.

Casper Glow Cost

The Casper Glow costs $89 for a single light, $169 for a pair. The price may seem a bit steep, but it doesn’t seem to deter customers. If you’re interested in buying one, hurry because the website says they’re almost out of stock.

Order a Glow

Glow Trial and Warranty

You have up to 30 days to try Glow and it has a 6-month limited warranty.

Specs:

  • Wireless (battery operated) with the option of plugging it into a wall or into the wireless charging station
  • Portable and lightweight – weighs under 1 lb
  • Minimalist design – 5.25 inches tall with a base
  • LED lighting with a 36x warm white LED array and 12x accent LEDs in amber
  • Apple and Android app for scheduling
  • Ability to group Glows or operate them independently
  • Touch control via app or shake, rotate or otherwise operate it
  • Battery life, said to be several days on a charge or 7 continuous hours

What’s next?
At the Vegas furniture show a few years ago, I was wowed by Reverie’s display that had speakers built into the headboard that can only be heard by you. Casper is working on something with music/sound. Besides light, temperature is another big factor in sleep.

They’ve also said they are working on concepts such as…

  • Weighted pillows that you can warm up
  • A diffuser to give the right scents to relax and help you fall asleep
  • A heated foot pad

Ghostbed pillow top mattress

GhostBed Goes High End with New Flex Hybrid Mattress

By | Mattress, Sleep Industry News | No Comments

GhostBed has a new mattress in their line of memory foam beds. The GhostBed Flex hybrid mattress is a luxurious 13-inch deep mattress with 7 layers, including memory foam, foam and coils. Flex is GhostBed’s third mattress and joins the original GhostBed and GhostBed Luxe.

The GhostBed Flex features a pillow top, is softer than the other two options and is the only bed they sell that has coils. Both the Flex and Luxe are 13-inches deep.

It’s difficult to keep the two models straight, because you’d think the softer, higher end model would be called Luxe, but it’s the Flex.

Firmness

The Flex is the most plush mattress GhostBed offers and comes in between a 4-5 on a 1-10 scale (with 1 being a marshmallow and 10 being cement).

Cost

At the time of writing, a queen Flex Hybrid is $1485, which is $210 above the Luxe.

Read the Amazon Reviews

Layers

GhostBed Flex has 7 layers, including 8 1/2” tall individual coils for support.

1. Cooling Topper – GhostBed Flex’s top layer with advanced cooling technology.

2. 1” of Cooling Fiber – A layer of cooling comfort is woven into topper to aid airflow.

3. 1” of Gel Memory Foam

4. 1″ of another type of Gel Memory Foam

5. 1″ of Transition Foam

6. Individually Wrapped & Reinforced 8 1/2” Support Coils

Purple plush pillow

New Purple Pillow Unzips for a Plush Dreamy Feel

By | other pillows | No Comments

Purple just introduced a new pillow – the Purple Plush Pillow. It’s their first sleeping product that doesn’t have Purple’s signature Hyper-Elastic Polymer Smart Comfort Grid inside (the purple stuff).

It’s an adjustable pillow – though not in the way pillows are usually adjustable. Most pillows that have zippers so you can remove part of foam inside and make the pillow more or less lofty. Purple’s pillow is unique because the zipper serves a different function: to make it more or less compressed.

You can zip or unzip it along the long side of the pillow to control how soft it feels. When you zip up the pillow it compresses it to create a more firm feel. Unzipping spreads out the pillow to create a softer feel.

True to brand you won’t find shredded memory foam inside a Purple pillow. Rather it’s filled with what they call, “interlocking poly fiber balls technology”.

Purple Plush Pillow

Cooling Pillow

I can attest to the coolness of the original pillow. If you sweat at night and don’t mind the heaviness of it, there’s not much better. Purple claims the new pillow is also cooling. The cover is made of Lyocell-blend material to make it cooler, moisture wicking, and more breathable.

Washable

In addition, the pillow is washable. Besides washing your pillow, Purple recommends that you fluff it once a week.

Size

The Purple Plush Pillow comes in one size – 26″ x 18″ – which is an odd size that’s not a standard, queen or king. A standard pillow is normally 20″ x 26″ so the new pillow is 2 inches smaller than standard. The original Purple Pillow is 24″ x 16″, also not large enough to be a standard pillow size.

Weight

Unlike the original Purple pillow, the Purple plush pillow is lightweight at 3.6lbs compared to 10 lbs for the original.

Cost

$49, which is about half of the cost of the original.

Sleep Trial

You have 100 days to try out the Purple Plush Pillow and if you don’t like it you can get a full refund.

Warranty

1 year

Purple Pillow Sale

With the new launch there’s a “buy one get one free” deal. Compared to many other online brands, it’s a steal, especially with the buy-one-get-one-free offer.

Saatva to Debut Super Bowl Ad to Guide you to Sleep Heaven

By | Sleep Industry News | No Comments

Saatva, an affordable luxury mattress brand, is airing their first Super Bowl commercial. The lighthearted commercial pokes fun at traditional mattress shopping gimmicks and focuses on sleep enlightenment.

It begins with a couple who types, “best mattress” into a search engine. Immediately a real guide appears who takes them on a journey to show them all of the frightening scenes depicting their various options.

“This is enlightenment?,” the woman asks after they stop at a floor where online coupons and sales are being pitched by unscrupulous-looking mattress reviewers. “No, these are search results, the bellhop says. “You can get lost in here real quick if you don’t know what you’re looking for.”

Though the ad has been on YouTube since September, a clip from it is airing during the 2019 Super Bowl. The ad already has over 9 million views.

Note: we may earn a commission if you shop through our links.

Saatva Super Bowl Ad

Is this the first online brand to air a Super Bowl ad? Here’s an extended version of Saatva’s fun ad…watch for the actual ad during the game.

In the video, hotel bellhop is a “Sleep Guide” who helps people navigate the chaos of buying a mattress online. They stop at a mattress store too (it’s pretty funny). At the end they get to “mattress buying nirvana,” which looks like a fun beach vacation but the beach has mattresses instead of lounge chairs.

They are also giving away 5 luxury sleep sanctuaries (read: a suite of Saatva products). Learn more about that below.

 

Saatva Giveaway

Saatva is giving away a luxury sleep sanctuary to five lucky winners as part of their promotion. The sanctuary’s value is at over $2,000.

Winners get a Saatva luxury innerspring mattress (any size), a Saatva Dreams luxury organic cotton sheet set, and a Saatva Dreams pillow.

Destination Mattress Heaven

One thing that sets Saatva apart from other online mattresses is they offer free white glove delivery and free mattress removal of your old mattress.

When it comes to ordering a mattress online, Saatva gives you a lot of choices. Choose from 3 comfort levels – a plush pillow top (a 3/10 on firmness), a middle (5-6), and a firm mattresses (8/10). You can also choose between 11.5″ or 14.5″ deep.

The queen 11.5″ is just over $1,000 – affordable as claimed. Though the process is a bit cumbersome compared to other mattress companies (not heaven), they have several options to choose from and are known for their excellent customer service. Check prices here.

Layla Mattress Has a New Modern Look

By | Sleep Industry News | No Comments

It’s a new year and a new look for Layla mattress. There are a lot of changes so keep reading to see what’s changed. What HASN’T changed is the mattress itself (inside).

Just to recap what makes Layla unique:

  • Flippable 2-sided mattress with a soft and a more firm side
  • Copper infused foam that emphasizes pain relief

Note: we may make a commission if you shop through our links.

New Layla Sleep Logo and Colors

New Look Emphasizes Being Awake Rather than Being Asleep

Layla’s new brand has launched with new colors which include variations of orange, light grey, and green. The brand wants to make you think of being your best awake self with more energy. So goodbye purple color scheme and hello  brighter colors.

Rather than a focus on sleep, Layla wants to shift their focus to being more AWAKE. For example, how to be a better person awake and perform better during the day.

Here’s the new Layla logo.

new Layla mattress

The website has been redesigned to reflect the new look.

New Mattress Cover and Mattress Design

Goodbye diamond/cube shaped patterns, hello hexagons! Layla is using hexagons as our primary design pattern across all their products for an updated look. We think it looks sportier.

new Layla mattress

The biggest change is the mattress cover. Layla has updated the cover on all their products but with the mattress cover, it’s labeled to make it much easier to identify the soft and firm side of the mattress.

In addition Layla has a proprietary “softening” process in their fabric that makes their covers much softer than other brands.

The Layla Pillow is Now Adjustable!

We love the Layla pillow, it’s one of our top picks. But it’s even better because Layla pillows now have a zipper so you can easily remove and add fill in order to customize the feel and loft. Hooray – we love adjustable pillows!

New Goodies in the Box

The box reflects the new look along with all of the packaging.

And Layla has improved the unboxing experience. Now the box comes with more than just a mattress. You’ll also get a welcome box, filled with goodies including a Layla drawstring bag, Layla T-Shirt, a plastic wrapper opener, brochures, instructional cards, and stickers.

Best Feather and Down Hotel Pillows

By | Bedding, feather/down | No Comments

Before we get into our favorite feather and down pillow, check out this holiday promo. Pacific Coast is a classic feature pillow company that supplies pillows to many hotels like Hilton. That’s where I first discovered it.

 What Pillows Does Hilton Use?

Pacific Coast is the brand I discovered when I stayed at a Hilton hotel for a conference. The pillow was so soft and dreamy that I checked to see what it was. I normally don’t sleep on a feather and down pillow but this one was so soft and comfy that I loved it!

This company has been making feather and down pillows since 1884! This is a classic feather pillow and they make everything from affordable pillows to higher priced luxury pillows and bedding.

The pillow I checked was 75% down. This one is 100% – check out their down hotel pillow.

Whatever you get, protect it with a pillow protector and it will stay cleaner and last much longer!

4 Ways Hotel Pillows May Be Different From Ones You Get at Home

Have you ever bought a hotel pillow only to come home and find it’s not the same? Here are some reasons why…

  1. Hotels may use a smaller pillow case (2″ shorter) to plump up the pillows and make them appear fluffier.
  2. Hotels sometimes use 2 pillow protectors on each pillow to reduce air flow to the pillow to keep it fluffier throughout the night.
  3. Hotel pillows are slept on and washed regularly which makes them get softer faster. You may need to wash and dry your pillow a few times to get the same effect.
  4. Pillows from hotels may be made especially for that hotel. You can look at the label and get as close as possible. They have to last as long as possible too, so the price may be higher.

Hotels know that when you have guests asking all the time if they can buy your pillows (or are stealing them), then you know you have selected the right pillow. Now you can buy a hotel pillow and get that hotel stay feel with a Pacific Coast pillow. It’s one of our top picks and what we sleep on at home!
