T&N: More money, less mattress

Tuft & Needle only has two foam layers and charges you more. With a Nectar, you get 3 comfortable foam layers, and 2.5 more overall inches of supportive mattress. It’s these generous layers – including one of premium memory foam – that give you a glorious night’s sleep. And all for a better price.

The Nectar Mattress

nectar mattress layers

Breathable Cooling Cover

Our signature cover is designed with innovative cooling technology for a refreshing rest. It features heat-absorbent polyethylene fibers that help wick excess body heat away to promote cool sleep.

Therapeutic Gel-Infused Memory Foam

Two inches of CertiPUR-US® Certified gel memory foam contours to your every curve. Plush gel memory foam offers pressure-relieving support and sleeps cooler than traditional memory foam.

Dynamic Response Layer

Three inches of conventional CertiPUR-US® Certified foam provides support while allowing airflow, plus crucial rebound and bounce. This responsive layer helps minimize motion transfer and promotes better spinal alignment.

ActiveSupport Stability Base Layer

Seven inches of conventional CertiPUR-US® Certified foam ensures structure, so the layers above it perform at their peak. This durable layer is the foundation for better sleep.

Shift-Resistant Lower Cover

The soft stitchbond polyester cover helps the inner core of your mattress stay in place, and prevents each of the layers from shifting on top of each other.

Tuft & Needle Mattress

turfeneedle mattress

Breathable Cover

Their cover is durable and soft. Too bad it’s not cooling like Nectar’s.

Adaptive® Foam

3” of open-cell foam is infused with graphite and cooling gel to wick heat away.

Base Layer

6.5” of foundational support foam helps prevent sinking.

Watch out for T&N’s customer last approach

You already know a T&N mattress has a whole layer less than a Nectar (that means less comfort and less support). But it also seems they care less about the customer.

Tuft & Needle rails against “backwards policies” and talks about the customer experience, but then makes you jump through hoops to get a refund if you don’t like a T&N mattress (and a lot of people don’t).

Let’s be fair to them, the T&N Original has a great price. But the question is, what are you not getting?

  • You don’t get much time to decide.You only get a 100-night trial. What’s it like to sleep on the mattress in the heat of summer and the cold of winter? You’ll never experience both in a T&N trial. Plus, most major brands recommend trying your mattress for at least 30 days, so really you’re only getting 70 days. And do you want the hassle of returning the mattress so soon? 3 months will be gone in a flash.
  • You don’t get much support if you’re heavier. With its basic two layer structure, the T&N isn’t great for heavier folks. If you’re over, say, 220-250lbs, you can sink too easily through the thin top layer. Then it’s just hard foam below that.
  • And you don’t get help when the warranty runs out.What if there’s a fault with your T&N mattress? Well, after year ten, T&N will say, “Tough luck, your warranty expired”. Whereas when you call up Nectar, we’ll say, “No worries, we’ll get that fixed right away for you”. And with the Nectar Forever Warranty™, we’ll say the same thing for as long as you own the mattress.

You’ll be ‘blown away’ by Nectar

“it works great for all sleep positions.”
