Used Purple Mattress: Where to Find One Near You

By | Mattress Sale | No Comments

Do you want to learn where to find a used Purple mattress? Here’s our quick guide to finding one for a great price. Even though they may be in like new condition, they’re sort of like a car. They lose value as soon as they’re out of the box.

used Purple bed

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

You can get a great deal on a used Purple mattress if you know where to look. 

Where to Find a Used Purple Mattress

Avoid shipping and do local pickup or classifieds sites such as eBay and Craigslist. You’ll always find used Purple mattresses there. Just search for your state and city. It’s not hard to find a 2nd hand purple mattress.

We prefer eBay because of the rating system.
Search for a Used Purple Mattress on eBay

Shop for a Used Purple Mattress on eBay


Find your city and state on Craiglist and search in the section for beds. Always ask to see the bed before you buy on Craigslist. Ask if it’s a factory second. Look for any deformities in the polymer (any divots, dips, etc). Ask how long they’ve had it.

You can always message us to see if we know of any used Purple mattresses in your area.

Adopt a Bed is a Utah charity that sometimes gets Purple mattresses. Call them at 801-266-1288  to see. They’re located at 583 W Billinis Rd #1, South Salt Lake, UT 84115. They also accept returns from Purple and other online brands so you can get a refund. See how Utah mattress donations work.

KSL Classifieds

You can score an even better deal on a used bed if you are willing to do a little work and wash the cover that may have some spots or be less than clean. Purple mattresses are easy to clean.

Did you know that all Purple mattresses have a removable cover? You can unzip the cover on all Purple beds. Just wash the cover in a regular washing machine (we recommend using a gently cycle and air drying). Use regular detergent and some Borax. Spray any stains or spots with OxyClean white.

Always use a mattress protector. We highly recommend purchasing a new Purple mattress protector directly from Purple. You may be able to find one on the sites listed below for less (worth a try).

used Purple 3 mattress

Where Can I Test a Purple Mattress?

Where you can test a Purple mattress before you buy:

  • Alpine, Utah at Purple headquarters. All Purple products are on display and you can try them out. Open every day except Sunday.
  • Adopt a Bed in Salt Lake City, Utah (see above for details)
  • Select Mattress Firm Stores
  • Denver Mattress
  • Sleep Sherpa showroom in Minnesota

Which Mattresses Sleep The Coolest? Top 4 Consumer Reports Picks

By | Adjustable Bed, Bed in a Box Mattress Review, Bedding, Boxed Pillow Reviews, Gel/other, Hybrid, Mattress, Mattress Sale, Memory Foam, platform beds | No Comments

Consumer Reports recently answered a question that we’ve had for years – what’s the best mattress to sleep cool?

So far we’ve seen a lot of promises but not a lot of performance when it comes to cooling products. Except the Bed Jet which blows cooler air into your bed, we don’t find many cooling products that work.

Even special fabrics or cooling gels haven’t given us great results (but a higher price tag). That goes for pillows, sheets, mattress protectors and mattresses. So rather than a cooling mattress or cooling mattress cover you should focus on finding one that doesn’t sleep hot! In other words, on that’s temperature neutral.

Foam, especially memory foam, softens when it gets warm. Then you sink in, it traps your body heat and the temperature rises. Generally speaking, the softer or more plush or the more memory foam you have, the hotter you’ll sleep. Even people who normally sleep cold will find themselves getting sweaty.

Best Mattress to Sleep Cool?

We know this isn’t a comprehensive test but Consumer Reports came out with a list of the mattresses that trapped the least body heat. One of them is an Unbox Mattress top pick – Purple!

  1. Sleep Number c2 Adjustable Air Mattress
  2. Purple Mattress (the original was tested – the new Purple mattresses should be just as cool or more as they have springs and the breathable polymer layer – read our review.)
  3. Duxiana Dux 1001 Innerspring Mattress
  4. My Green Mattress Natural Escape

As Purple states on their website: Most mattresses don’t breathe. Memory foam, latex, even foam with “cooling” gel beads are hot because there is no place for air to flow.

These materials are either completely solid or have very small airways that allow for little ventilation.

How The Beds Were Tested 

Consumer Reports put a copper plate on a mattress in a temperature-controlled room. “The plate is insulated on all sides except the one that comes in contact with the mattress. Then we run an electrical current through the plate”. Then they measured how much energy the copper plate uses to maintain a temperature of 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit (close to people’s average body temperature).

“If a mattress dissipates heat well, more energy is needed to maintain that temperature, but if the mattress retains heat, less energy is used,” – Consumer Reports 

The 10 hour test looked at how much energy was used.

Beds that Sleep Warmest

Consumer Reports also looked at the worst performers – the mattresses that slept the warmest. Stay away from them if you want to sleep cool! It’s interesting that Sleep Number beds made both lists! That just goes to show that materials used makes a big difference! Also note that no boxed brands made the list (even though boxed brands are usually all foam).

  1. Sleep Number 360 i8 Smart Bed Adjustable Air Mattress
  2. Sleep on Latex Pure Green Firm Foam Mattress
  3. Sleep Innovations’ Marley Foam Mattress
  4. Charles P. Rogers St. Regis Pillowtop Innerspring Mattress

What materials should you avoid if you want to sleep cool? Foam.

“You’re more likely to sleep warm on a foam mattress, compared with a hybrid innerspring, which we define as several inches of foam layers over metal springs. Despite having a layer of cooling gel foam, a larger percentage of foam models still retain warmth.”

Is your mattress too hot? It might be time to switch. Let us know if you’ve ever found a cooling mattress that works!

Purple Mattress Memorial Day Sale

For 2018 here’s what you get when you buy a Purple mattress this weekend…

FREE Purple Sheets

Best sheets for Purple mattress? Purple sheets! Stretch Armstrong is only slightly stretchier and these sheets are a lot softer!!

You can’t get the full benefit of the flexible comfort grid on top of every Purple mattress (that cushion your pressure points) without sheets that are flexible too. Otherwise you get the drum effect when cotton non-stretchy sheets are stretched across your bed. Drums don’t belong in the bedroom!

Purple bed sheets

Purple bed sheets come in white, slate, sand and yes, PURPLE! Retail varies by size but a king is $129. Fits the new Purple mattress and the original.

FREE Purple Seat Cushion

A super cushy cushion for your back side and when you can’t lie down on your Purple mattress but need some pain relief. Also amazing for long road trips and jobs that involve a lot of sitting. Or maybe you just drive an old car and the seat cushioning is worn down.  People use these for backs and on wheelchairs too.

Purple seat cushion

The Royal Purple seat cushion – retail: $79 but free with mattress purchase on their Memorial Day special

Want to learn more? Check out our Purple4 mattress review.

Remember that the Purple mattress is the top mattress only. You do need something to put it on – they don’t recommend box springs. Suggested: the Purple base or if you’re really fancy, the Purple Powerbase.

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.

Spine Align Pillow

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 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.

Sweet Zzz

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.

Bedinabox Mattress Review – Top 5 Features of the Serenity Mattress

By | Bedding, Eco Friendly, Hybrid, Mattress, Mattress Sale, Uncategorized | No Comments

BedInABox Mattress Review

Read More Reviews

As always, the advantages to buying a mattress online – is that the prices are often lower and most have great/easy exchange policies. Every person is unique and so is their mattress preference. You can research for months unable to make a decision when the best way to know what you like is to narrow down your selection to the materials you like, the height you like, and the price range you are comfortable with. Then start trying your top pick until you find a mattress you love.

It’s not like marriage where getting out of it is painful and costly! You can keep dating until you find the best fit for you and be out nothing until you find the perfect match. Too bad real dating isn’t like that!

First, disclosures: we were given this queen size Serenity Mattress by BedInABox for the purposes of this review. We’re affiliates of BedInABox and your purchase helps us do more reviews.

Affordable Luxury Beds Under $2,000
When we unboxed the Serenity the first thing we thought that it was more luxurious than we expected it to be. We thought it would be an economy mattress. But it’s not.

Bedinabox is based in Tennessee. They have an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau and have been in business since 2007 (over a decade). So although this brand might be new to you, they’ve been in the business for a while.

We all say “Bed-in-a-box,” (sort of like we call tissues Kleenex), but what you probably don’t know is that this company owns the trademark to the term “Bed in a Box”.

They’re a small, family owned business who sells affordable luxury beds that  made in the USA, not just ‘assembled in America’. Since they’ve been around longer they have a wider selection of products from mattresses, to mattress toppers, sheets and adjustable bases.

They have 7 models in various price ranges, starting at $699 for a queen. It comes in more sizes than you’d expect. We never see split queens or split California king sizes!

Here’s the full list:

  • Twin xl
  • Full
  • Queen
  • King
  • California king
  • Short queen
  • Split king
  • Split queen
  • Split California king

Like most boxed brands you’re paying for the top layer and need a mattress frame, box springs or platform to place it on.

We highly recommend that you use a mattress protector before you sleep on any new mattress. Bedinabox carries their own brand of mattress protector in several styles. Using a mattress protector will help prolong the longevity of your mattress and prevent spills from damaging your mattress.


The Serenity queen is just under $2,000 which is right where you’ll see similar featured mattresses. There is financing that gets your payment at around $60 a month.

Visit Official Site

Mattress Layers
The Serenity has 5 layers of foam, including memory foam. They do tell you the density of foam that they use, which we appreciate, because most mattress companies don’t give you a lot of detail about that.

Let’s get into a little detail about what how this bed is constructed. This is their high end mattress and it’s like a pillow top which you usually don’t see in boxed brands as often.

The Pillow Top Cover
The cover is quilted and is quite attractive – it has CoolRest® Adaptive foam which is based on technology originally developed to use for space suits. It helps balance temperature between the sleeper and the mattress to help keep the sleeper comfortable throughout the night. There’s 2” of super-soft, gel-infused quilting foam on top.

In addition, there’s 4” of 1.8 lb density, high-quality soy-based transitional foam, progressing from contouring to supporting. Then you have 4” of high-density foam to support body weight and align the spine. This includes a 2.2 lb density core.

Top 5 features of the Serenity Bed in a Box Mattress

Feature #5: The Serenity is 14 inches thick.
This bed has a thicker profile that gives it a higher end feel. If you like a bed that’s higher up, you’ll love this mattress.

Feature #4: The Serenity is reversible.
There’s a softer side and a firmer side. If you prefer to sink into your mattress a bit, choose the soft side. If you prefer to feel like you are sleeping on top of the mattress, choose the firm side.

The quilted cover on top is the soft side but if you decide you really want a firmer feel, you can flip the mattress. While it doesn’t have the plush pillowtop on other side, it still has an elegant quilted cover with a little give. On the soft side, the sleeper sinks into the mattress a bit and is cradled. On the firm side, the sleeper sleeps more on top of the mattress, but still with the comfort and look of a quilted cover.

Feature #3: A bed with handles!
Since this mattress can be reversed it’s nice that they give you these handles to help you turn it. I wouldn’t lift it by the handles alone but they can help you turn or flip the mattress. It weighs 100 lbs.

Feature #2: The Serenity has a 20 year warranty 
This is a longer warranty than the typical 10 years and a slightly longer trial period. It has free shipping too.

Feature #1: Made in the USA and has almost no smell/offgassing
I’m very sensitive to offgassing and this mattress had almost no smell.

We really like these family-owned mattress companies like Bedinabox and our recent RV mattress review of the Tochta. Your mattress gets shipped faster and the quality tends to be higher too.

Is the New Purple Mattress Softer?

By | Bed in a Box Mattress Review, Gel/other, Hybrid, Mattress, Mattress Sale | No Comments

I wrote this post while lying on my Purple mattress. I can’t sleep and wanted to take down some notes.  1,000 or so words later….this is what happens to you when you think about mattresses a lot. You have a lot of opinions. You’re a bit long winded.

One of the most common questions about the new Purple mattresses is:

Is the new Purple mattress softer?

My short answer is no, not really. If you thought the original Purple mattress was too firm you probably won’t be happier with the new Purple mattress (read or new Purple mattress review). But if you do decide, go for the Purple4 since it will have the softest feel.

is the new Purple mattress softer

At Purple headquarters, the word employees use is that the new beds are more immersive than the original Purple mattress, whatever that means.

Let’s start with that you don’t sink into a Purple mattress very much. There’s not any memory foam in it and the Smart Comfort Grid (formerly called the super stretchy polymer) has very little give. So if you want to feel any hug you’re not going to get it, but it’s not cold and unresponsive (like your ex husband or wife). But it’s definitely supportive (unlike them).

If you’re heavier, as in over 350 lbs, you’re going to want to spring for the Purple3 or 4. If you’re lighter go for the Purple2, unless you just like the look of a higher profile bed.

Still not sure which one to get?

Compare Purple Mattresses.

With other mattresses my biggest complaint is that my hips sink in so my spine isn’t aligned. It’s kind of in an uneven V shape. That’s the stuff of bad backs. With all the mattresses I review, my back needs to be pampered. If I could have anything I wanted, I’d wish for a mattress butler who followed me around and moved mattresses for me.

The Biggest Reason People Return a Purple Mattress? Too Firm

I have a hobby of asking people why they return their mattress. The most common answer is it’s too firm. Note that I also hear it’s too soft. For the same brand.

That’s the reason a sleep trial is so important, these are very personal and subjective terms. One person’s plush is another person’s too hard.

The new Purple beds don’t feel softer. Adding more comfort grid and springs doesn’t change the feel significantly. Even though I’m sleeping on the Purple4, the one with a full 4 inches of polymer (the most of any model they offer), it can’t be called soft. In other words, buy it for the height or support, not for more give.

As long as the top layer is polymer it never will be soft. Although Purple was anti springs when they were a startup and not a publicly traded company, that did something they swore they’d never do, they added springs. If you told the original Purple they’d grow up and be sold in Mattress Firm they’d never have believed you. However, I don’t see Purple adding anything above the polymer layer. It’s too integral to the brand.

And that’s not bad. Mattress Underground, the most long winded review site online, says a firmer mattress is more durable, writing that:

Firmer materials will tend to compress less and last longer than softer versions of the same material so if you are choosing between two mattresses that are both a suitable choice in terms of comfort, firmness, and PPP and one of them is slightly firmer than the other and there are no other significant differences between them that would affect durability then I would choose the one that is slightly firmer.”

Note that PPP = Posture and alignment, Pressure relief, and Personal preferences

You want soft? Get a Loom and Leaf or other memory foam bed. I spoke with a woman who says after waiting to adjust to the new Purple and just wanting something softer she settled on a Loom and Leaf and has been happy.

There are fewer soft options than firm in the online mattress world than medium firm. If you want a true what I call marshmallow bed, try Linenspa mattresses. You’ll sink and hopefully not drown!

How do you know if your mattress is too firm?

If your mattress is too firm, it will push on your pressure points like your shoulders, hips and butt. This will take you out of alignment and you’ll start to feel aches and pains. 

If you feel pain as soon as you lay on your bed, it’s probably not your mattress. The telltale signal that it’s your mattress not you is you feel worse after spending hours in bed.

When a mattress is too soft and you sink into it too much causing the heavier parts of you to sink in further than the rest of you. So your spine isn’t in neutral. causing back pain.

Too Firm for Older Adults?

My parents, who are both in their 80s (and in denial about it), added a $40 mattress pad to their Purple mattress and have been happy ever since. But Purple wouldn’t ever suggest that, because well, they’re selling you on the properties of sleeping directly on the responsive layer. It’s like their prized granddaughter and all they want to do is show it off.

At least you could replace the topper (here are the bestselling mattress toppers on Amazon). when it develops an imprint which you can’t do when that softer foam is built into your bed.

Is the New Purple Worth It?

Purple really does sleep temperature neural. It actually does cushion your pressure points and has the best motion isolation of any bed I’ve ever slept on. Those are it’s biggest selling points. Is the new Purple worth the price tag? I think it is. Purple truly offers something unique in the boxed mattress industry. All these comparison videos between Purple beds and other brands make me roll my eyes.

Purple is nothing like a typical foam block mattress in which one is so much like another, they’re really hard to choose between. It’s like deciding which arm you like better.

I have a friend who bought a Purple who has read so many conflicting reviews that she hasn’t opened it yet. She’s afraid to and now she’s blown through her 100 day trial and can’t return it. I’m tempted to buy it from her because our mattress in a box that’s only a year old has developed something that looks like a tumor on the side. Since it was a review sample I can’t make a warranty claim, but that’s a first! I’m tempted to put another Purple on that bed.

But don’t expect Purple to feel like other beds and don’t expect it to be soft. Remember how you used to go camping and sleep on the hard ground and be just fine? Those days are over. They thing that’s soft is your middle age tolerance for a bad night’s sleep.
