Today, Nectar announced a new product: an adjustable frame. Pair with your Nectar mattress to add a whole new sleeping experience. Like most boxed mattresses, you buy the top mattress only and so you need a base to go with it.
Nectar already has a foundation you can use, but now they also have an adjustable base.
Note: we earn a small commission at no cost to you if you purchase using one of our links. We hope to do a full Nectar adjustable frame review next and your support allows us to continue to offer reviews.
What most impressed us is that their adjustable base has a guarantee! Usually sleep trials don’t apply to adjustable beds because they’re heavy and difficult to return. However, it’s risk free to try the Nectar adjustable frame. Nectar says if you are not 100% satisfied, you can return your adjustable frame for a full refund up to 100 days after your purchase! It has a 3 year warranty.
Boxed mattresses often just have the top mattress and still need to be paired with a base or platform. This has contributed to more interest in adjustable beds. You can find them in a variety of colors and fabrics and with higher tech features. To get a more finished look, a headboard or bed frame with your base.
Adjustable beds are popular for all ages. Split options make them appealing to couples. They address health issues like back pain, snoring, acid reflux, congestion and other concerns so you can sleep more deeply.
Enhance the time you spend in bed with under bed lighting and even speakers or USB chargers can keep you powered as your bed becomes your work station that allows you to work in bed. You can find the most luxurious adjustable bed or a cheaper model that covers the basics.
Zero-G positions may reduce the pressure on your spine, shoulders, or hips. Relieve muscle tension and improve circulation.There’s nothing better for bad backs.
Massage soothes sore muscles from today’s tough workout or takes you to a deeper state of relaxation.
Like mattresses, adjustable beds can be boxed and sent to you. However, most don’t offer returns or sleep trials because they’re so heavy.

Adjustable Beds Reviews and Comparisons
Adjustable bases can run hundreds or thousands of dollars. Here are some top choices based on research to help you get the most out of yours.
Do you sleep solo or with someone else? If you sleep with someone else do you want one mattress or a split base that each has its own control?
How much space do you have? Wall huggers conserve space.
What features do you want? Consider what’s important to you – massage, plugs, alarm feature, etc.
Wired or wireless remote? Does it come with an app? Presets?
What is your price range and does the price include the mattress? If you buy a mattress that’s too thick it won’t bend when you raise or lower your head/feet. Make sure you get a quality mattress though – the flexing motion will cause extra wear and you don’t want to sleep on a mattress that develops a fold in the middle. Adjustable mattresses can be innerspring, foam or a combination of the two. Most boxed mattresses will work with an electric bed.
What’s your style? If you don’t like the look of the mattress and bare base, you might still need a bed frame to drop your adjustable base into. It gives a more polished/stylish look.
That’s it for our top adjustable bases for 2018. What one do you want?

Mattress Sale Memorial Day
Here’s a roundup of mattress deals for Memorial Day. Note: this list will be updated as we learn of new Memorial day sales and each year. Also check out Mattress firm Memorial Day sales.
On Memorial Day we remember those who died serving our country by enjoying the freedom they fought hard for. It’s also a great day to get better sleep by saving cash on a new mattress. Who knows how the two got associated but my guess is it’s because people have a 3-day weekend so can spend the time to buy things like cars and mattresses.
Online mattresses are already so reasonably priced (no retail store or cost of sales people). These sales makes the prices even lower. Scroll down for details or to the end where we have a table so you can quickly compare mattresses, prices and discounts to find the one that’s best for you.

The SpineAlign Pillow has a utility patent based on its uniqueness and is the first pillow specifically designed to help keep you in correct sleeping posture on both your back and side while at the same time being fully adjustable & customizable to fit your specific head and neck.
Posture is a largely ignored topic when it comes to choosing a pillow, but if you’re not sleeping in correct posture then you’re most likely putting unwanted and potentially harmful stress on your head, neck and spine which can lead to several different symptoms like headaches or migraines, numbness & tingling in arms and hands, back & neck pain and the list goes on and on.
Designed with a smaller side and a larger side so it will fit most people. The average person owns 7 pillows because they can’t find one that works. The SpineAlign Pillow was invented by a sports chiropractor, Dr. Jason Loth, DC, CCSP, CSCS, CMTA who has over 17 years of experience dealing with the biomechanics of the spine. The goal of SpineAlign.com is to help the tens of millions of people who suffer with insomnia (National Sleep Foundation says 50-70 million people have insomnia), due to being in pain or just uncomfortable because their pillow doesn’t support their head & neck get a great night sleep and hopefully have improved health.
When it comes to making durable foams two things come in play: the density of the foam, and the process the foam goes through. Memory foam beds with 2 lb density are considered okay and are sold cheap everywhere. 3 lb density beds are considered good and are pricier and found in branded mattresses.
Sweet Zzz uses O-CellTM Foam which is 5 lb and 4 lb only (nothing lower). Beds are made to order – they take 3 days to make your bed after you order and have a top in the industry lifetime warranty on their beds.

Hello Unboxers, today we’re talking about adjustable beds with our Purple Powerbase review. First, disclosures. As part of our business, we received this Powerbase. The mattress is ours. We’re affiliates of Purple and make a commission on sales. We’re also biased because we LOVE Purple products and have been using them for several years (as long as the company has been in business).
Let’s sum up the Purple Powerbase by saying: Didn’t realize I could sleep so comfortable…
Purple Powerbase is an adjustable base made especially for Purple brand mattresses (it’s made for Purple by Reverie). It’s a full-featured adjustable base that’s both therapeutic, relaxing and easy to use. We think an adjustable base is the best and only choice for anyone who suffers from back pain that makes it difficult to sleep.
Purple Powerbase Review
No more Restless nights
My neck, back and feet feels good. Wait , Who am I kidding, my entire body feels great and well rested now. No more awkward ways of sitting up in bed to read a good book to relax, this is the best decision I have made for me and my family.
The Purple Powerbase can change your sleep patterns and sleep habits so you sleep so much better and wake up refreshed.
The Purple Mattress with the Powerbase is a lifestyle change. That’s what’s amazing about this. This isn’t just for old people like an old hospital bed for lots of money. These are for people of all ages. They’re great for reading in bed, on your phone, on your laptop, and you can be upright or even watch TV. Then when you’re ready to go to sleep, relax back down and go right to sleep.
And our customers absolutely love it. They appreciate that lifestyle change, and that they have a different experience than just going to bed and trying to get to sleep. They enjoy the features of it. The Purple Mattress is fantastic. It is a mattress that is both soft and firm. So, the top few inches made of the purple gel compresses easily. So you immediately just sink into the mattress, and then you hit the layers of foam that provide the support and firmness.
In the video we show the original Purple mattress with the adjustable base. However, now Purple has come out with 3 new mattresses. We think they’re even better than the original. The Powerbase works with all Purple brand beds. Read our Purple3 Review Here.
Raise your head or feet with a press of a button. The zero gravity button (which is a preset) puts you in the most weightless position possible. The anti-snore button raises your head up about six degrees.
You can use the preset buttons to record your own configuration of the Powerbase. There are 4 modes. Another button turns on the light that’s underneath the Powerbase. So, if you get up in the night, use the restroom, come back, there’s a little glow underneath the bed so you can see where you’re going. It prevents you from banging your shins against the bed or waking someone up, yet it’s not bright enough to disturb your sleep.
The purpose of the zero G or zero gravity, as developed by NASA, for the most comfortable position to take stress off of your joints and low back, and it’s a comfortable position for sleeping or just relaxing. The other feature that’s fantastic is the massage. It has multi speeds and you can do head and foot both or just head or just foot, It’s also on a timer. So, once you’ve relaxed thoroughly and fallen asleep it will automatically turn off, so it’s not just shaking you all night long. That’s such a great feature!
Go Back to Flat Button
Then, there’s a button that says “Flat,” that you can push to return to the flat bed position. You must press and hold it and that’s so you don’t accidentally go flat when you got it where you want. And you’ll go all the way back down, and it turns off the massage. So, once you’re ready to go to sleep you just press “Flat” and you’re done.
The cradle for the remote control has a USB port for plugging in or charging your phone or other USB devices. On the back are two AC outlets, which is very convenient. Some power beds have those features on the frame itself.
There’s also an app however, as of this writing it’s only available in iOS.
The massage is divided into head and foot massage, with different speeds you can choose.
Purple Powerbase with the Purple Mattress
The Purple Mattress is perfect for the Purple Powerbase, because the Purple Mattress is quite flexible with the gel and floppy is another term used to describe it, that it contours easily to the Powerbase in any position that you could put it in.
The sizes it comes in are Twin, Queen, and Split King. Split King is two separate beds that can control either a king mattress or a split king mattress where you have two separate mattresses.
There’s one control for each spouse. It’s a fantastic feature, and if you want single control the two sides can be linked together for one king mattress.
Purple Adjustable Bed Prices
So, for a Twin XL frame Powerbase, it’s $1,399. For Queen Powerbase, which is what we’ve been showing, is $1,499. The Split King, which is two Twin XL bases, is $2,798.
They do specials often for, if you get a mattress with your bed you get some money off and save some money.
Purple Powerbase Warranty and Trial Period
The Powerbase does come with a 20-year warranty, but just like the mattress, there is not a trial period or returns. It comes in a box and must be assembled. It’s heavy and would be very expensive or near impossible to send back.
1 Year Parts & Labor
2 Year Motor Warranty
5 Year Coverage for Parts only
20-Year Limited Warranty
Purple Mattress is Perfect for People with Bad Backs
If you lift a lot of things or have back pain for other reasons, the Purple Mattress and Powerbase takes the pressure off your back. It’s one of the only mattresses that doesn’t cause our reviewer more back pain. You won’t wake up in the morning sore and needing to stretch. It can make a big difference and a big impact on you sleep and how well you sleep.
This bed helps so much!
“The purple mattress and power base have really helped my sleeping a ton. I suffer from 3 spinal deformities and a degenerative spinal disease so getting a solid sleep without much pain is nearly impossible. After the first 2 days(it takes a bit to get used to a soft yet firm feeling mattress that doesn’t sink) I found myself getting better sleep with a lot less pain and feeling more rested. I highly suggest this bed to anyone who suffers from back pain or wants a quality bed with a quality mattress.”
And recently we got this comment on our YouTube review of the Purple Powerbase + Purple4 Mattress:
“I have horrible spine issues 5 levels fused in my neck and 3 in lower back. I’m looking to buy a mattress with adjustable base and I’m wondering how big of a difference is the 3 & 4? I would like saving the $500 but if it’s significantly better than I will spend it.”
A month later she followed up with this comment: “I got my purple 4 with adjustable base…and it’s super comfy! It feels totally different than any bed I have ever laid on.”
You’ll love how the Powerbase helps your shoulder issues…
Love my bed
I have had shoulder issues and pain for the last year. I finally went to my orthopedic doctor and the first question he asked me was “How old is your mattress”. Apparently having a 10 year old mattress is not a good idea. So I did a ton of research online and found Purple and I’m so grateful I did! My shoulder pain has gone away and the mattress is just so comfortable. I will say however, I bought the Powerbase with it and I really think that has made a huge difference. Being able to raise the head rest has also helped greatly. Also love how I can make the bed a second office!!
An adjustable bed like Purple’s can help you stop snoring. Perhaps you’ve tried things like mouthpieces or headgear to stop your snoring. They don’t look so good on and don’t always work. However, just raising your head slightly (6 degrees higher so your head is higher than the rest of your body) can open your airways, help you breath and prevent snoring for a lot of people. When you stop snoring you experience better sleep (and so does anyone who sleeps with or near you).
Acid Reflux and Sleep Apnea
Now, it also helps with these, for a lot of people, like acid reflux and sleep apnea, which are major problems and affect people’s sleep.
Purple Powerbase Question/Answers
Please leave questions in the comments and we will add them here.
Does the Powerbase work with the new Purple mattresses?
Yes, the powerbase works with all of the Purple mattresses, including the original, the Purple 2, Purple 3 and Purple 4 mattresses.
How do I use a headboard or footboard with the Purple Powerbase?
You can attach a headboard to your wall or purchase one with brackets. Since the Powerbase is made by Reverie you can call their customer support to order the parts you need.
The powerbase can drop into any bed frame as long as it doesn’t have a bar or slats in the middle (the slats must be removable). Zinus makes many styles of platform beds which will work with the powerbase. As long as the PowerBase fits inside it (most will) it will work fine.
Just like this Purple platform base is floating inside of the bed frame, you can drop a Purple adjustable bed inside of a frame.
How does the Powerbase feel?
It holds you in such a way that your lower back has support while your butt as somehow disappeared into the purple like those delicate eggs in the commercial.
Is there an Android version of the Purple Powerbase app?
Not yet. Right now it’s only available for the iPhone. Purple also plans to add a way to save preferred positions on the app.
Can I launch my spouse out of bed with the push of a button?
Is there financing for the Powerbase?
Yes, Purple Powerbase can be purchased at checkout with Affirm. That means you get it now but pay a monthly payment. If you have good credit you can get 6 months interest free (the credit score required isn’t listed, but they perform a quick credit check when you buy). That way you can get your mattress and the Powerbase now and pay as you go.
Are there special sheets required for the Powerbase?
The Purple brand sheets work with the Powerbase – as do most sheets. However, since your mattress is going to move a lot it’s nice to have sheets that won’t pop off on the corners and that stay put. Purple’s sheets are SUPER silky and stretchy, plus have a nice warranty. We like jersey knit sheets like this too.
