As a blog editor, I often get the opportunity to review and rate some awesome products. Today’s post is exactly that! If you’re not following my personal Instagram (@TheJessentials) or my personal blog (TheJessentials.com) you may not know that I recently took off to spend a few months living and working from Southeast Asia. “Why?” You may be asking… Well, I can pretty much run this little blog from anywhere with a reliable internet connection, so I decided to take advantage of that fact! If you want the full story, you can read my blog post about it here.
Anyhow, since I’m going to be out of the country for a few months, I was having trouble stomaching the idea of continuing to pay astronomical NYC rent for a bunch of space that wouldn’t be used. Being the budget savvy gal that I am, I didn’t think it was wise. So I thought… instead of letting my home office sit empty, why not turn it into a spare bedroom and rent it out to recoup some of the costs? After all, renting your spare rooms on Airbnb is a great way to earn some cash, whether you’re just looking for a little side income or trying to earn extra money to pay for your wedding.
The only problem? We needed a comfy bed for our guests! If you’ve shopped for mattresses at all recently, you might already know that there are dozens of different “mattress in a box” companies out there now. It can be overwhelming to compare them all and decide on the right option for you. When I make a big purchase, I tend to do a ton of research. In the options I viewed online, I came across NECTAR – a company whose mattresses really stood out among the crowd for me. There were a few things that caught my eye about NECTAR’s mattresses:
NECTAR has been hailed as the most comfortable mattress ever. NECTAR is healthier to sleep on, firmer for support, softer for rest, and a touch bouncier than other premium memory foam mattresses. This combo makes it the perfect mattress! With a 4.8 out of 5 star average of over 800 reviews… the glowing response really speaks for itself!
I checked out all the various options for memory foam beds in a box and NECTAR’s prices really beat the competition when it comes to value and price. Queens are regularly priced at $795.
Nectar offers an incredible warranty that they call their Forever Warranty™. Essentially, it’s a lifetime warranty on manufacturing defects. Their mattresses are built to stand the test of time, and have been tested thoroughly. Supposedly the mattress will never sag, and will last up to 50 years!
365 Day Home Trial
NECTAR gives their customers a full year to try their mattress, and if for any reason you don’t love it, you can get a full refund– no questions asked! They have to really stand behind their product in order to agree to that, right?
With all this in mind, I decided to team up with NECTAR to make my guest room dreams a reality. Over the last several weeks I packed up my office and put some things in storage to make room for the fabulous new mattress from NECTAR… our new renter is going to have the best sleep of their lives on this mattress. Honestly, I kinda wanted to keep it for myself… but seeing as I wasn’t going to be home to sleep on it for the next four months, I figured I could let our temporary house guests use it. Five-star ratings, here we come! ?
Another thing that stood out to me about Nectar is that the mattress shipped vacuum sealed in a simple duffel bag rather than a bulky cardboard box. This made it SO MUCH EASIER to pull out and set up than the ones that are crammed into a box, lemme tell ya! We had it out of the bag and laid flat to expand within a few minutes!
I really like the look of the quilted top of the mattress. Plus, the matching pillows are really just the icing on the cake! Right now they are offering their mattresses with a couple of free pillows. (Limited time offer, so be sure to take advantage soon!) Now our guest room is perfect for our impending guests. ??
Get a Queen for only $670 +2 Free Pillows
For a limited time NECTAR mattresses come with two memory foam pillows! It’s like a cloud for your body and your head. Their prices that blow the competition out of the water. This deal is definitely up the alley of our budget savvy brides and grooms!
