|Cal King Longer but Narrow||$1195 $896||$1,495|
Along with construction, durability, and sleep comfort, the price you will be paying for your new memory foam mattress can be a huge issue. With memory foam mattresses climbing into the thousands of dollars it is comforting that you can find a quality mattress at under $1,000. Both Casper and GhostBed offer a choice of six mattress sizes. GhostBed comes out ahead with a lower price starting with their twin size that is priced $100 lower than Casper’s. The most popular Queen sized mattress is priced very well by GhostBed at $100 less than Casper. Again GhostBed wins the price war with its King bed at $120 less than Casper’s and GhostBed’s Cal king at $100 lower than Casper’s price.
At 11-inches high versus Casper’s 9.5-inch high mattress, GhostBed wins in construction over Casper.
“One of the key items of GhostBed is that it is made by Nature’s Sleep, a mattress company that has been around for a number of years,” as noted by Mattress Clarity.
The GhostBed mattress is made with a 1.5-inch continuous aerated latex foam top layer that is made specifically to not retain heat. The top layer sits on 2-inches of a gel memory foam layer designed to comfort the body for a cooler night’s sleep. The base layer is created from a 7.5-inch high density foam for increased support and longevity. Also setting the GhostBed apart from Casper is its stretchable soft tufted mattress cover that zips off to be machine washed. GhostBed and Casper both offer a matching foundation.
Comfort means different things for different people. Back, side and stomach sleepers all want a mattress that is constructed specifically for them. While some prefer a very firm mattress while others want something to sink into. The design basis behind both Casper and GhostBed is to develop and create a singular mattress that will fit all sleep types. This is perfect for those who share a bed.
Both Mattress Clarity and The Sleep Sherpa have given GhostBed great comfort reviews. As stated by Mattress Clarity in their GhostBed review, “The GhostBed bounces back fairly quickly (for a foam mattress) due to the top layer of latex. The extra spring is enough to make sure you avoid that ‘stuck’ feeling that is common in memory foam mattresses” continuing, “The firmness is at a point where it’s comfortable to sleep in any position.” Sleep Sherpa adds to their GhostBed review, “The combination of cooling gel foam below ventilated latex is a nice touch.”
There is no comparison with the warranty’s issued by GhostBed and Casper. At an astounding GhostBed Mattress 20-year warranty versus Casper’s 10-year limited warranty, GhostBed clearly comes out ahead. Both companies promise to fully replace the mattress if found to have a defect in the first ten years of ownership to the original owner. GhostBed goes much further, providing additional coverage and protection for years 11 through 20 of ownership in which they will either repair a defected mattress or replace it at a prorated cost.
Having substantial trial periods really allows you to get to know your mattress in the comfort of your own home. Both Casper and GhostBed offer great trial periods with GhostBed allowing for 101-day sleep test and Casper boasting a 100-night trial. This certainly allows for you to really decide if the mattress you choose really does provide the ultimate night’s sleep. GhostBed and Casper both allow for one to request to return within the trial period to have the mattress picked up at no cost and receive a full refund. GhostBed does request, “You give your new mattress a chance for the two of you to get to know each other for a minimum of 30 nights,” which makes full sense.
As GhostBed says, “We suggest taking 30 to 60 nights to make your decision, but we’ve given you 101 nights to relax and enjoy it.”* Some of the reviewers may have affiliate relationships with GhostBed and receive a commission, similar with other mattress suppliers and consistent with industry practices.
