Our customers have told us time and time again that they dread mattress shopping. That’s why Sleep Number is hosting two “Out with the Old, In with the New” Twitter parties on February 17th and February 24th to talk about all the reasons we dread mattress shopping and the simple things you can do to make the process easier. For example, do you know the five tell-tale signs it’s time to replace your mattress? We’ve developed some easy tips and guidelines to take some of the stress out of mattress shopping, including five signs it’s time to replace your mattress, six service factors to look for, three steps to buying perfect mattress and a personal mattress criteria checklist.
5 signs it’s time to replace your mattress*
1. You’re still tired when you wake up
2. Your body is filled with stiffness, aches and pains
3. You had a better night’s sleep somewhere other than your own bed
4. Your mattress sags or looks lumpy
5. Your mattress is 5-7 years old
