What makes Nectar the grand champion of comfort?

Nectar’s focus has been on engineering a perfect night’s sleep. (And it has the awards and ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ reviews to prove it.)
Whereas Casper advertises a lot – at subway stations, on Billboards – and that expense shows up in shopping cart.

“Feel the premium-foam difference”

“I like vacation, but I love our mattress.”
“My wife and I originally went with a Casper after reading several reviews from multiple sources, but after 2 months we sent it back and went with the Nectar. After recently returning from a week-long vacation staying in a local beach house, my wife stated, "I like vacation, but I love our mattress."

Best Memory Foam Mattress
2019

Casper won an award for being funny on Twitter. And one for e-commerce. And a single one for “great value.”

Nectar outsleeps Casper.
You get more ZZZs for less $$$.

Customers report loooong, happy-faced slumbers on nights with Nectar. For $300 less than Casper*. So let’s look at the layers of each mattress to understand the differences.

Both Nectar and Casper are memory foam...

  • But unlike Casper – which is all base layer – Nectar gives you more. Keen engineering places your cradle layer over your support layer over your stability layer. All underneath a soft, breathable cover. Translation – you sleep snug as a bug all night.
  • Unlike Nectar, Casper only uses 2 layers of memory foam. And 1 is a thin cover layer with little holes for “airflow.” The middle layer of their mattress is divided into “zones.” So your hips and waist stay on top of the mattress while your shoulders and legs sink in. Not exactly cozy conditions for Dreamland Express.

Layered foam without zoning like you’ll find in Nectar is the gold standard if you want a comfortable night’s sleep, night after night.
*As of 07/2021. All pricing and offers are subject to change.

The Nectar Mattress

Cool-to-the-Touch Quilted Cover

Conk out cool with this soft, breathable cover.

Comfy Cradle Layer

Cuddle every angle and curve with cushy, pressure-relieving gel memory foam.

‘Just Right’ Support Layer

Get Goldilocks-level firmness with dynamically adjusting foam. So you never sink in too deep.

Stay-Stable Base Layer

This sturdy layer helps the oh-so-comfy upper layers give 5-star performances on repeat.

Slip-Free Lower Cover

No slip-and-slide here. Your mattress stays put, no matter which bedframe you choose.

Casper Original Mattress

Casper

Cover

Polyester over foam, with little holes.

Zoned Support™

Three zones, 1 foam layer. Your hips and waist rest on firmer foam than your shoulders and legs.

Base

Described as “durable,” the Casper base ensures the mattress isn’t just a few inches tall.

Why Casper costs so much more than Nectar.​

You’ve heard of Casper. They’re funny on Twitter. Plus, they’ve paid to get your attention. Like spending millions on subway ads you can’t help but notice.

But we’ve looked at the layers. Casper’s foam isn’t secretly speckled with gold flecks. So why does it cost that much more than Nectar, which has proven to be top of its industry, as awards and customer reviews show?

There’s a one-word answer: Marketing.

See, Casper was started by 5 smart guys in 2014. As the first bed-in-the-box brand, people were excited to avoid the showrooms.

And while the concept of ordering beds online was still new, Casper wowed people with unboxing videos on YouTube. Have you ever seen a bed-in-a-box inflate? Captivating, really.

Anyway, they got all this attention and Casper just kind of became a household name. Plus, they offered an “unheard of” guarantee: a “risk-free 100 night trial.”

But here’s the thing.

This isn’t 2014 anymore. You have choices.

Nectar has optimized the “bed in a box” product while pushing past Casper to provide an actual unheard of guarantee:

  • Nectar gives you a 365-night trial. (Casper is 100 days.)
  • Nectar offers a Forever Warranty™. (Casper is 10 years.)


Besides, it usually takes about 30 days for a mattress to adjust to your body properly anyway… So by the time a Casper mattress adjusts to your body properly, you’ll only have a little over two months left to decide how you feel about it. Nectar gives you over 5X longer than that to decide.

So to sum it up:

  • Nectar uses premium foams to help provide optimal support for your entire body, no matter your height. Casper uses immovable “zones” that may not fit your specific needs. 
  • Nectar costs $300 less than Casper*.
  • Friends tell friends about Nectar, while Casper advertises in subway stations.
  • You can return your Nectar within 365 nights. You can return your Casper within only 100 nights.

*Single pillow for twin/twinxl. Price May Not Reflect Any Current Promotions Or Discounts (As Of 07/01/2021)
*Plus, get pillows, a sheet set and mattress protector (value $399) free with your Nectar

Besides, people aren’t exactly over the moon with Casper…

"COULDN’T EVEN RETURN IT"
“This is the worst waste of money we ever spent. My husband wakes up every morning in SO much pain and saying his back feels like jello! Not enough support in the slightest. By the time we finally caved and we're ready to return it we were at 109 days. They said "There's nothing we can do for you." What a waste of $1,500!”

"REPLACE THIS FOAM BLOCK"
“I’ve had this mattress several months now and I have completely regretted buying this mattress...After only a few days my hip started to hurt and still does, only while in bed. Now here's the point to this review I never had hip pain until I got this mattress. So now I have to replace this foam block with a firm mattress which completely SUCKS.”
Verified Buyer

“EGG-CRATE TOPPER QUALITY”
“This mattress is essentially a very firm piece of foam topped with two thin softer layers of foam that feel the quality of an egg-crate topper from Walmart. There really is no way to make this thing comfortable, and my husband and I both strongly dislike it.”

Far better value
“I tried Casper for about two months and enjoyed a better sleep than my conventional mattress. However, I still had hip pain and was in the market for a softer(more pressure relief) mattress. Nectar was the answer! I’ve been sleeping more soundly, longer and wake up more refreshed than I ever have. The value for your dollar is certainly better than Casper.”
