Some have more strings attached to those trials than others, but you usually end up getting most of your money back. So you don't have to worry about going "all in." Consumer reports has a lot of good information about mattress buying. Let me know if you're interested in that and I can send you some.
What's it say about Zinus on there? Just curious.

I don't see any ratings for Zinus mattresses. I guess they haven't tested them.

I've had the Zinus for two years now and I have no complaints. I've never had an expensive mattress though so I don't know what I'm missing. I have multiple family members who've bought one as well and they like them. These are so much cheaper than the other options so I'd recommend starting there and if you like it you've saved a ton of money.

The Zinus is rather firm though which was a change for us but we got used to it and like it now.

What Zinus model do you have? I see the Zinus site offers the same pricing as Amazon so it I were to get one i would order from them since it would be easier to return/refund.

Ejhartman is probably right though. Dont get a "cheap" mattress, but it seems Zinus might be good enough.

After over 5 years our tempurpedic feels like new still. Can't say I've ever had an uncomfortable night on it. No more sleep caused back pains and far less tossing and turning than previous mattresses.

It's also firm enough for any activities you may want to do in a bed.

Cost is high but I can't imagine anything being better.

Jocelyn doesn't know it, but I got Evie the green tea Zinus. I couldn't decide between that and their other model. Got the basic frame as well.

I was gung-ho on getting us a King ordered before moving next week but it's not going to happen. I'll set up Evie's bed and order one for ourselves later if we like it.

I plan on opening the twin at our current house and then move it after it's expanded. Will make it harder to move, but wouldn't be too bad. I just want to make sure it's ready to sleep on by the time it's in the new house.

I bought a bed, will be here Thursday. With the new baby we got a co-sleeper that sits between is in bed. It made a big difference in our night routine, but it's too cozy in our queen.

Went with Zinus like Corey, but did a less firm model. It seems criminal how much I paid for the bed+frame on Amazon. Worst case scenario we hate it and return it. Medium case scenario we like it and it only lasts a few years, but that will still save us money long term

I ordered a Tuft and Needle Mint the other day. Should be here next Monday. I don't think I've ever owned a new bed.

High roller!! I'm sure that will be very high quality and last a lot longer than ours. What size did you go with?

What one?! Maybe we got the same!
Even though my platform and mattress are Zinus, I ordered on Amazon.

That's sharp looking. We did something very basic with the assumption of a bed skirt.

That was kind of hard to man handle. Would have been a little easier if I read the instructions first on how to move/open it

Now we wait ImageImage

I learned king sized pillows are a thing. The king sheet came with huge pillow cases. Had to get new pillows.

Review on the bed coming soon.

I'm still upset you didn't get separate blankets and comforters

We like it. It seems insane we got a king mattress for $330. I don't expect it to last as long as Danny's, but even if we have to replace it every 2 years we should be coming out ahead.

The mattress is firmer than our old one, but we also had a 2" foam cushion on top of the already soft mattress topper. I feel a little sore, but I think that is largely due to the bad sleep we get with a newborn, not because of the mattress itself. The mattress seemed VERY soft when we first got it, but for whatever reason once you put a mattress water proof cover and sheets on it, things aren't as soft.

Really enjoying the room though. The bed seems massive.
