“What on Earth is a Mattress Fundraiser?” and answers to other common questions about our events.
Q. What is a Mattress Fundraiser?
A. A Mattress Fundraiser is typically a one or two day event designed to raise money for a worthy organization. For the event, a complete “pop-up” mattress store is set up in a school, community building, or other suitable location. 20 to 30 different beds are typically offered in a wide variety of types, sizes, price ranges, etc. When a purchase is made, profits from that purchase are directed to the cause.
Q. This seems unusual. Why does it work so well?
A. It’s simply basic supply and demand. Statistically about 1 in 5 households are considering purchasing a new bed or beds. We are simply redirecting that purchase to the fundraising event where not only do you get a great bed, but also benefit your community in the most direct way possible.
Q. Do you sell anything else at these events?
A. Yes. We have a wonderful selection of pillows including bamboo pillows, pillows that stay cool all the time, chiro recommended pillows and more. All at prices lower than you will find at stores and such online retailers as Walmart.com and Wayfair.com. We also offer bed protectors at similar low prices
Q. Speaking of price, what are the prices? How do they compare?
A. Our prices are extremely competitive, and nearly always lower to significantly lower than beds of comparable quality. Queen size is the size generally used by most stores for comparison. We start at $399 for a queen 2 piece set and top out at about $2000, with all points in between. Adjustable queen beds (including mattress and adjustable base) start at $998.
Q. But I’ve seen queen beds advertised by mattress stores at less than $200.
A. We are committed to only selling quality beds that have actual, legitimate sleep value. Therefore, we simply will not offer any products that don’t meet basic quality standards. Our personal belief is that quality sleep is the foundation of all health and wellness. In fact, an important aspect of our non-fundraising business is providing quality beds and pillows through a broad network of Doctors and other Medical Health Professionals.
We understand budgets, and try to offer selections that can satisfy as many customers as possible. But we not only will not sell what we consider to be inferior products, but we are also conscious of the fact that we are fundraising for an organization, and we would never sell anything that might cause hard feelings toward that organization.
Q. What kind of beds do you sell?
A. We have many types of beds, including basic innerspring beds, memory foam beds, gel memory foam beds, hybrids, adjustable beds, special heavy duty beds for larger or obese customers and more. Most of our beds come in Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen and King sizes. Many of our beds also come in California King Size. About 70% of our beds are recommended for use with an adjustable base if you desire.
Q. What else should I know?
A. Our beds have a 10 year non-pro rated warranty. Most beds offer a 60 night comfort guarantee. Delivery is available for a small fee. You will find the best, straightforward, no gimmick bed values at the event.
