Purple Mattress Financing With Affirm – How it Works

By | Mattress | No Comments

How Purple Mattress Financing Works

Purple Mattress Financing allows consumers to purchase a brand new Purple mattress, get it today and pay it off via affordable monthly payments. So it basically means you can get better sleep faster. Interest rates are as low as 0% APR for qualified customers and there are no additional fees.

Contrary to what many think, mattress companies don’t make money on financing, they make money because it means more people buy a bed because they can afford it.

Financing is a fantastic way to obtain an award winning Purple mattress without paying the total purchase price upfront. You can purchase a mattress for as little as $58/month which is less than the price of a Coke each day. A small price to pay for a great night’s sleep!  In this guide, I’ll explain how to purchase a Purple mattress on finance.

How Do You Finance A Purple Mattress?

Purchasing a Purple mattress on finance is simple. There are only three steps:

1. Choose the Purple™ mattress you want to buy on finance
The first step is to choose the mattress that you wish to purchase. Head on over to the Purple website to decide on which mattress you want.

There are 3 options:

  • The Purple Mattress
    Starting at $649 for a Twin and going up to $1,399 for a King. It features a Dual-layer Polyurethane Foam base, 2” Smart Comfort Grid Level (Hyper-Elastic Polymer), and is medium-firm. This mattress is 9.5 inches deep.
  • The Purple Hybrid Mattress
    Starting at $1,299 for a Twin XL and going up to $1,899 for a King. This mattress features a Polyurethane Foam and Responsive Coil base, 3” Smart Comfort Grid Level, and is medium-firm. It has springs. White glove delivery with in-home setup and old mattress removal available in all 48 contiguous states. This mattress is 11 inches deep.
  • The Purple Hybrid Premier.
    Starting at $1899 for a Twin XL and going up to $2699 for a King for the 3″ version. It features a Polyurethane Foam and Responsive Coil base. You can choose from a 3” or 4″ thick Smart Comfort Grid Level. The most soft being the 4″. White glove delivery with in-home setup and old mattress removal available in all 48 contiguous states. The 3″ is 12 inches deep. The 4″ is the thickest Purple at 13″ deep.

After you choose your mattress and any other products, the website will automatically show you the total price. For the configuration we  chose, the price is either a one-off payment of $2,099 or a monthly repayment of as little as $98 per month. You pay more for your cell phone!

Mattress protectors help you ensure that your mattress stays in great shape and is an essential addition for your new mattress. It’s a good idea to protect your bed because in some cases it could void your return or warranty if the mattress has stains, rips, extreme smell, infestation, lots of pet fur, etc. Plus it will prolong the life of your bed.

Purple often offers a free product when you purchase a new mattress, so we are going to add a free Mattress Protector. Purple mattress protectors are extremely water-resistant, quiet, and provide protection on all 5 sides of the mattress. Any deals like that will be stated on their website.

2. Apply for finance
To checkout using finance, click on the View Details link local beneath the monthly repayment total. A pop-up will appear with more details of the finance terms, including an estimate of what you will pay each month (based on a 10% APR).

In our case, payments will be $97.03 per month based on a 10% annual interest rate for 24 months. After two years we will have repaid a grand total of $2328.72, which means we will have paid $229.72 in interest or about $9.50 interest per month.

Purple partner with Affirm to offer mattress financing. Affirm is one of the country’s leading providers of small consumer loans.

To continue, click on the See if you quality button. You will have to either create a new account with Affirm or log into your existing account. If you are creating an account, you will need to enter several details including your legal name, email address, birth date, and the last 4 digits of your social security number.

Once you have completed the form, click Create account. Affirm will then check your credit report and decide if you are eligible for finance. It may take a couple of minutes to receive a response from Affirm, but most decisions are made instantly.

3. Review the details of the financial agreement
If you have qualified for finance, the website will show you the full details of the loan agreement. The interest rate charged will depend on the quality of your credit report. The size of the loan determines if you will be given a 6, 12, or 24 month loan.

You will be shown exactly how much interest you will pay, if any, and how much you will be expected to pay each month. Make sure you read the terms and conditions of the financing agreement before you accept it.

If you are happy with the details of the financial agreement accept it and finalize the checkout process. Purple has beds partially assembled but they aren’t completed until an order is received. In most cases, your new Purple should be at your door within 2 to 3 weeks!

What Purple Mattress is Right for You?

We recommend the Purple Hybrid – 2″ or the Hybrid Premier 3″. This bed is heavy. Unpacking and moving it can be challenging. If you can afford it, save your back. The hybrid models offer delivery service so you won’t have to lift a finger. 

Choose the Purple Hybrid Premier if you like a softer feel. The 4″ is the most soft, however, some people will prefer not to have that much polymer grid on top. Knees will sink into the polymer. That’s why a 3″ might be a better choice. If you truly like to sink far into and feel hugged by your mattress or prefer a really soft bed, the Puffy Lux is comparable in quality but has that classic memory foam feel. 

Or, you can try one out a Purple Mattress in person at most Mattress Firm stores, Bed, Bath and Beyond and Macy’s. You can try one out at their headquarters in Alpine, Utah which is about 30 minutes from Salt Lake City. Before you go to a store, call to check that they have Purple mattresses on display.

Just note that stores have their own return policies and may not have the same financing or freebies as buying online. You may be charged a return fee if you decide not to keep your mattress. They may not accept any returns on freebies (which means you keep and pay for them should you return the bed).

Other Purple Products We Recommend

Besides the stretchy Purple mattress protector, we think it’s worth considering the Purple sheets. They’re made to stretch with your movement and the comfort grid. Since Purple has such a unique feel, you need sheets that aren’t stiff and that will give you the full experience.

While some people (especially back sleepers or people who want a flatter pillow) love the Purple pillow, we’re not fans of the Purple brand pillows. This is the only Purple product that we haven’t liked.

The Purple Powerbase is a high quality adjustable base that’s excellent for people with bad backs, because it offers a zero-gravity position that takes the weight off your back. It also has massage which helps you fall back to sleep faster. Then there’s the ability to raise your head slightly which helps open your airways and prevent snoring.

Common Questions about Purple Mattress Financing

Does it do a credit check?

Yes, only to confirm your identity, and decide if you’re approved and for what interest rate. It won’t show on your credit report.

Do you need to put down a deposit?

No, Affirm allows 100% financing for all Purple™ mattresses.

What fees are involved?

One of the great tings about Purple™ mattress financing is that there are no late fees, no service fees, and no prepayment fees.

How much interest will you pay?

Your annual percentage rate (APR) will be between 0 to 30% based upon how much you are borrowing and how good your credit score is. Affirm also offers a 6% interest cap for anyone on active military duty, which you can apply for here.

How long do you have to pay back the loan?

Affirm will offer you a repayment term of 6, 12, or 24 months for Purple™ mattresses, based on the size of the loan.

How can you pay the bill?

Affirm make it simple to repay your loan, with several repayment options including debit card, bank account, and check payments.

Do you need to have existing credit score?
Yes, a credit score needed.

Will their credit score check affect my credit rating?

When checking your eligibility for Purple™ mattress financing, Affirm credit will perform a “soft” credit check. This check is designed to confirm your identity and determine if you are eligible. This eligibility check will not show up on your credit report and will not affect your credit score.

How soon will it ship?

Once your finance has been approved through Affirm, Purple will immediately begin processing your order. You will have your new mattress within 2 to 3 weeks.

Purple Mattress Changes Explained New Names, Cover and Prices

By | Mattress | No Comments

Today Purple Mattress announced changes to their mattresses. Don’t be alarmed though. The patented Hyper-Elastic Polymer™ (aka, stretchy polymer grid or comfort grid) still makes up the top layer of every mattress. This is what makes a Purple a Purple and what supports your body and is flexible in all directions.

Like this:

Sometimes it’s difficult to decipher marketing emails to see what really changed. So let us help! Below we tell you what to expect. There are affiliate links in this post which may benefit this site if you shop through them.

Original Purple Mattress Changes

There are 4 things that have changed about the Purple mattress: the name, cover, price and improved edge support. The Original Purple

Name

The Original Purple Mattress is now known simply as the Purple Mattress. We guess it’s been out long enough that it doesn’t need to be described as original any more! The Purple Mattress has the same 2 inches of purple polymer and the rest of the bed is made of foam.

Cover Design and Fabric

The cover is a different color and made of new fabric. It went from the geometric all-white design to white with purple dots and swish along the side, like this:

It also has a new, durable SoftFlex cover that moves when you do. So it’s more stretchy. This is the least expensive mattress Purple carries. Purple mattress review.

Foam Border

Like the hybrid models, the Purple Mattress now has foam borders to reinforce edge support for better sleeping and sitting on the edges. Previously the edges collapsed in and though not awful, now they will be more supportive. Like you wish your spouse would be sometimes. We really like this change!

Price

The price for the Purple Mattress is $100 more for most sizes. You can buy a split king which is cheaper than buying two twin xl mattresses to make your own. You get a price break by buying them as a set.

A Purple mattress is a perfect to pair with an adjustable bed (like the Purple Powerbase – but it works with any brand adjustable bed). Purple is one of the best mattresses to use on an adjustable base because they’re floppy means they conform to the shape of the bed better when you’re sitting up. Other beds are more flat and often leave a gap by not lying flat on the base.

See The Purple Mattress on Purple.com

Purple 2 is Now Called the Purple Hybrid

What used to be called the Purple 2 (it has 2″ of purple polymer like The Purple Mattress) is now the Purple Hybrid. That means it has responsive support coils and foam (no memory foam). Other than that the price, cover and layers are the same.

See The Purple Hybrid Premier Mattress on Purple.com

Purple 3 or Purple 4 are Now Called the Purple Hybrid Premier

The Purple3 and Purple4 are grouped together with a new name – the Purple Hybrid Premier. This is a bit of a tongue twister but as before, they either have 3 inches of polymer or 4 inches (the most soft model).

The mattresses are the same thickness – that didn’t change.

See The Purple Hybrid Mattress on Purple.com

We think these changes make sense in that it’s less confusing. The new Purple mattress came out a few years ago so it’s no longer new. The name didn’t reflect that the numbered models are all hybrids.

new Puffy mattress

New Puffy Mattress Extra Plush 14″ Puffy Royal

By | Mattress | No Comments

One of the more plush mattresses that comes in a box now has an even plusher version – The Puffy Royal Mattress. This is the newest mattress from Puffy and like the original and the Puffy Lux, they are made up of all foam. However, the Puffy Royal has some features that set it apart.

If you ever tried a Puffy and found even the Lux too firm, the Puffy Royal will be the best choice. Those who really love to sink into their mattress and want that body contouring and plush feel will appreciate the softness without the heat. Keep reading to find out how Puffy has addressed this common concern.

The Puffy Royal – Puffy’s Plushest Mattress

On the higher end price wise, the Royal is a luxury bed. If you compare it to other boxed brands it might seem premium priced. Yet it isn’t pricey when compared to similar brands. Puffy has added several features to the Royal that make it a great choice for someone who wants the softness of a Tempur-Pedic without the price tag.

One important point to note is that The Puffy Royal and all Puffy mattresses all come with a LIFETIME WARRANTY.

One of the most difficult qualities about a more plush bed is that they often have more memory foam. That means it get softer as your body heat reacts with the foam. Your body heat then gets trapped and builds up in the indent your body creates. Puffy has addressed this concern with the Royal and the physical differences in the foam set it apart from the original and Lux.

 

Top 3 Features of the Puffy Royal Mattress

  1. It’s thicker – a full 14 inches deep!! Love the look of height on your bed or platform bed frame? This is it!
  2. There’s a breathable layer to cool down the memory foam. That allows more airflow than the other two Puffy mattresses and so you’ll sleep cooler.
  3. Extra support on your low back. With 5 cloud zones, your head, neck, shoulders, and feet will feel softest. There will be a little more support at your lower back. This means you won’t get that dip near your back might throw your spine out of alignment.

Is The Puffy Royal Mattress for You?

If you want to skip the store and buy online, plus you find most mattresses aren’t soft enough for you, the Royal will likely be a good fit.

As with all Puffy mattresses you get a 101 night sleep trial. Sleep on it in your own bedroom and see what you think. New mattresses typically take about a month to break in (your body is used to the mattress you’ve been sleeping on for years, even if it’s past its prime now), leaving you plenty of time to decide what you think.

One last nice touch with the Puffy Royal is a removable stain resistant cover. Still, we recommend that you don’t skip a mattress protector.

If it’s not for you, know that Puffy donates returns to help communities around the country.

Coop’s New Reversible Mattress Topper Is Firm on One Side Soft on the Other

By | Bedding, Mattress Topper | No Comments

Coop Home Goods, the online company known for helping you find the perfect pillow for you, recently introduced a new 4″ thick reversible Mattress Topper. Called the Flip because you can switch between two support levels: firm or soft.

This is the first mattress topper they’ve added to their collection of sleep related products.

Most people buy a mattress topper to solve a specific sleep problem, because it’s easier and less costly than buying a new mattress. It also helps you extend the life of your mattress.

One of the biggest complaints or top reason a mattress gets returned or people don’t like their mattress, is because of the feel. In most cases, the complaint is that the mattress is  either too soft or too firm. The Flip is perfect if you have this problem. Or, if you have a guest room (or Airbnb) you can change the feel to fit different preferences.

What we love most about Coop is how they make quality products and stand behind them (even bedding) with a generous sleep trial and warranty. It’s a brand you can trust.

Airweave Mattress

Airweave Mattress – TheJapanese Style Minimalist Bed

By | Mattress | No Comments

If you’ve been looking at bed in a box mattresses for a while, you’ll see they’re easy to mix up. There are so many different brands and names that it’s tough to know which one. That’s why, at Unbox Mattress, we appreciate a unique bed. Airweave mattress is one of those beds.

Are you one of those people who likes sleeping on the floor more than sleeping on a mattress? This might be the right mattress for you! It’s made in Japan, a country famous for more firm mattresses. If you’ve ever lived or traveled there you may have adjusted to a firmer bed or futon.

Airweave mattress gets very high reviews from people with back pain or with severe allergies.

Airweave lifestyle picture bed

5 Reasons Airweave Mattress is Unlike Any Other Bed

1. Breathable. It’s made mostly of air.

Like the Newton Baby mattress, Airweave is lightweight because it’s essentially made of a polymer that comes in blocks. Then a pad and a cover. Very simple design that you can breath through because it’s mostly air.

inside an Airweave mattress

2. Lightweight and easy to move (goes back in the box).

Instead of coming rolled up in a box, Airweave comes in 3 flat panels. You can assemble and disassemble it quickly. One person can move it on their own. A king size Airweave weighs less than 90 lbs.

3. It’s a truly firm bed.

Most mattresses give out over time and become less firm. It starts going down where you sleep. Not the Airweave. It will hold up and stay firm.

If really firm isn’t right for you but the other qualities of this bed are, then choose the Airwave Mattress Advanced that has a softer pillow top.

4. It sleeps cool.

Despite what marketing messages there are about cooling gel or cooler fabrics, most memory foam sleeps hot. Foam naturally gets softer when it gets warm (and your body heat is enough to do that). Airweave has no memory foam in it. In addition, it doesn’t have airflow and that means you won’t sleep hot.

5. Easy to Clean.

You can literally wash the inside of your mattress with water or put it in the shower.

6. Hypoallergenic.

If you have severe allergies that interfere with your sleep, get this bed.  The Airweave mattress is incredible.

7. Perfect if a standard mattress doesn’t work for your home or bedroom.

Narrow hallways, staircase, small spaces (like an RV) or doors that won’t fit a regular bed? You can get an Airweave in, easy.

8. Lasts a long, long time.

With no foam there’s less likelihood that your bed will wear as quickly and get divets.

9. Ships free to the US, but also China, Japan and Taiwan.

What other mattress ships free to countries outside of the US? Airweave was born in Japan and out of the Japanese tradition of simple, minimalist design. They have factories in the US and Asia.

10. Has a simple, clean design that is thinner than most beds, at 8.5 inches thick.

The Airweave mattress sleeps very cool thanks to the natural airflow in the airfiber material. The company has conducted research showing the difference in core body temperature when sleeping on airweave vs memory foam. It shows core body temp lowers faster which means you stay in a deep sleep state for a longer period of time on the Airweave.

  • Thickness: 2 layers of 3.9″ airfiber® (7.8″ total), with cover: 8.5″
  • Cushion: Polyethylene 100%
  • Outer Cover: Polyester 100%
  • Inner Cover: Modacrylic 60%, Glass Fiber 40%

Sleep trial is 100 days and Airweave has a 10 year warranty.

Newton Baby Debuts New Twin Size Mattress Protector and Weighted Blanket

By | Bedding | No Comments

Newton Baby (link goes to our Newton baby mattress review) recently came out with two new products: a Twin Mattress Pad and Weighted Blanket. Up until now the company only carried products for babies and kids. Now, with the the new weighted blanket, they have a product for adults too.

Free shipping and returns on both of these items.

Newton Baby Weighted Blankets – Not for Babies

The weighted blanket requires a minimum weight of 60lbs so it’s designed for adults and older kids. It has a quilted outer cover that is permanently embedded with copper threads. This may be the first weighted blanket we’ve seen with copper. There are wellness benefits of copper and it naturally helps eliminate odor causing bacteria.

Because being a parent can be stressful, the weighted blanket helps calm your nerves and help you fall asleep faster and deeper. The interested part is that Newton Baby addresses not just the calming affects of a weighted blanket but the heat factor. Because they’re heavy, they are usually hot to sleep under.

True to their brand, these weighted blankets are breathable. Made of cotton and embedded with copper since copper is a natural conductor of heat. That helps transfers heat away from the body for a more comfortable temperature.

Comes in an off-white color to match any decor. Free shipping and a 100 night trial means Newton stands behind their products. 2 year limited warranty.

Sizes
The weighted blanket comes in two sizes:
48 x 72 inches (for twin or full size beds)
60 x 80 inches (for queen and king size beds)

Weight
Choose from one of 4 weighs. How do you know what weight to get? It’s based on your weight. Weighted blankets should typically be 7-10% of your body weight to receive the optimal benefits.

As of now, Newton Baby doesn’t sell a twin size mattress, but we’re going to guess that there may be one coming in the future. That’s good news because Newton is so unique and we hope it’s not just for babies for long!

Just like their other Sleep Systems, the queen size comes with a FREE waterproof Mattress Protector and a FREE pillow. Everything is the same just BIGGER!

As you can see the packaging is adorable and it’s a fun brand. Practically speaking though, it’s the extras and the stain proofing qualities that make it more than the cute marketing.

  • Cover is removable, machine washable, stain- and water-resistant
  • Made with OEKO-TEX ® certified, organic cotton fabric
  • 100-Night Rest Test

Mattress Construction

As of this writing, the price is $899. Other sizes include, twin and full.

How to Make a Soft Memory Foam Mattress Firmer

By | Mattress | No Comments

Have you been thinking, my memory foam mattress is too soft? It’s time to do something about it and get the sleep you need. Note that there are affiliate links in this post.

5 Ways to Make a Soft Memory Foam Mattress Firmer

Get a mattress topper

Latex toppers are a great choice. They usually have holes that allow for air flow and separate you and your body from your bed. You can get a denser non memory foam topper to add firmness. We recommend the firm option from Nestled brand latex mattress toppers.

Change your foundation

Firm foundation, solid like a bungee board, plywood or the floor. You can even put the plywood between the mattress and box springs or base.

Keep your room cooler

Consider a bed cooler or a BedJet if you have the budget. The more you can disperse body heat the better because the warmer the memory foam gets the more it sinks in and feels softer.

Flip your bed over

Most memory foam beds have softer memory foam on top with denser foam on the bottom. Even though they’re made to sleep with the soft side up, try switching it up. Sleep on the bottom layer.

Buy a Firmer Bed

Sometimes your mattress is too soft no matter what you do. It might be time to invest in a new bed. There are financing options available for an affordable monthly fee. Consider how much sleep loss affects the quality of your life and what it means to wake up refreshed instead of dragging through your day.

You may not realize how much your bed affects you until you get a new one that you love.

Flippable beds
Consider a flippable bed made so you can sleep on either side, depending on your firmness preference. Beds like the Layla mattress are specifically made to be flipped. So is the affordable Nest Flip.

Adjustable beds
Look at Adjustable beds that have layers that can be changed for a different feel. Ecosa mattress has 3 layers you can move to create the firmness level you want.

Dreamcloud is another firmer bed choice.

Brooklyn Bedding Plank is firm also.
