Why have 2,000,000+ people chosen Nectar?

Whereas Tempur spins you a marketing story stuck in the 1990s,

Nectar’s focus has been on engineering a perfect night’s sleep.

(And it has the awards and reviews to prove it.) All while keeping

the cost down for you. It’s no wonder so many people recommend Nectar.

“Great night’s sleep”
“I have been a Tempur-Pedic user for the last 18 years. I felt that I was not getting the best sleep. When I was researching mattresses, Nectar had great reviews and a good price point. I sleep great and it keeps me cool at night. Highly recommend!”
Robert C

“AMAZING!”
“We had a Tempur-pedic mattress for 2 years and hated it! I paid $3,000 for that stupid mattress that was supposed to be the best and the Nectar was so much better!”

Tempur’s award

Space Technology Hall of Fame

Inducted in 1998 for improving life on Earth with innovations designed for space

Tempur: Designed for space.   

But costs you the earth.

Tempur claims to use a secret space-age material, inspired by NASA scientists. And this “secret” is only known by 10 people (which may or may not include Pinnochio). So are you paying through the nose for a marketing story?

Nectar needs to spin no story. It simply uses generous layers of premium memory foam – the gold standard if you want a comfortable night’s sleep, night after night.

The Nectar Mattress

Cool-to-the-Touch Quilted Cover

A cosy, cool-to-the-touch soft and breathable cover.

Comfy Cradle Layer

Pressure relieving memory foam that cushions and cuddles every curve.

‘Just Right’ Support Layer

Foam that dynamically adjusts to your body, giving you just the right level of firmness.

Stay-Stable Base Layer

This sturdy base layer helps the upper comfort layers give 5-star sleep performance.

Slip-Free Lower Cover

No slip-and-slide here. Your mattress stays together, no matter how much jumping you do.

The Tempur Mattress

Cover

This covers the secret NASA technology underneath.

Space-inspired Foam Layer

Foam material that contours to your body. So, like every other memory foam mattress in the world. (But it’s NASA tech, so get your wallets out, right?)

More secret material

A harder layer made of more Overpriced Space Foam

The problem with Tempur

You’ve heard of Tempur-pedic mattresses. You’ve heard they’re expensive. OK, really expensive. For their lowest priced Queen-sized mattress, you’ll be paying an extra $1,100 compared to the equivalent Nectar. That’s a lot of cash (cash you could be spending towards something fun… like a great vacation).


The question is: what are you getting for all that extra money?

The answer isn’t clear (which is never a good sign).

  • It seems that Tempur (a company which helped to usher in the new memory foam era) is still trying to sell you technology that’s been around for over 30 years, as if it’s revolutionary. It’s like selling you a DVD player for $800 – in 2021.
  • But maybe that means you’re paying for a mattress that really lasts, that comes with a kick-ass warranty? Nope, that’ll be a Nectar, built to last and with a Forever Warranty™ to prove it. Get a pricey Tempur and it comes with an underwhelming 10-year warranty. It makes you think…
  • Ok, so you’re overpaying for mattress “tech” that’s really nothing special. And the warranty is… well, nothing special! They must take customer service really seriously, right? Err, well, this is awkward… their own website is littered with 1, 2 and 3 star reviews.

It seems people just don’t think all that extra cash is worth it…

Very uncomfortable
“It's very hard...doesn't mold into my body–kind of like sleeping on a brick! Sorry, but it is very uncomfortable...no cloud here! And an expensive one at that!”
Source: Tempur-Pedic.com
We used to be fans
“We used to be fans of Tempur Pedic, before we needed to claim warranty on our mattress. They do not want to exchange, and if they do they will give you a used one and ask you to pay $300 for shipping.”
Yana
Verified Buyer
There is no customer service
“There is no customer service! I have called three times today and finally hung up each time after being on hold for 30 minutes, 45 minutes and one hour!!! I have left several email requests and they have not responded.”

“Bought Tempur. Regretted it. Bought Nectar. Loving it.”

Great sleep, for a lot less.
“I love everything about it. No complaints. Great price. Easy setup. Was on my doorstep in 2 days! I have a Tempur-pedic queen size that’s about the same firmness that costs 5 times as much and I can't tell the difference between the two. Would definitely buy again”
Adam T
Verified Buyer
More comfortable than a Tempur-pedic
“Exceeded my expectations! This is a great mattress! My husband and I have previously slept on a Tempur-Pedic and find this to be much better. It's more comfortable, doesn't make us hot while we're sleeping and much more affordable. We couldn't be happier with our purchase!”
April F
Verified Buyer
Better investment in sleep
“After about a month, we love our Nectar mattress. Since day one, the quality of our sleep has improved dramatically, the pains we used to have on our old mattress cease to exist since sleeping on our Nectar mattress. Very happy with our purchase over a more expensive Tempur-pedic.”
