The Homemakers Mattress Shopping Experience

No-Pressure Shopping Experience

Let’s be honest, mattresses aren’t exactly an impulse purchase. The last thing you want when making any large financial decision is being pressured into buying something you aren’t totally sold on. With our non-commission sales team, you can rest assured that our staff is totally focused on finding which mattress is best for you.

Homemakers Non-Commission Sales Specialists

120 Night Comfort Guarantee

120 Night Comfort Guarantee

It can be nerve-wracking to buy a new mattress. Even if you found it comfortable in-store, sleeping on it at home can be a different story. In fact, we recommend sleeping on any mattress for a minimum of 30 nights before forming any conclusions. This allows ample time for your body to adjust.

That’s why we offer the Homemakers 120 Night Comfort Guarantee. If your new mattress just isn’t working out, you can return it and pick out a new one within 120 days of receiving your mattress. Just pay a $69.99 restocking fee!

Low Price Guarantee

Low prices are something everyone can get behind. To help make sure you get the best price possible, we have the Homemakers Low Price Guarantee. While we always work hard to keep our prices low, we’ll credit you for 110% of the price difference if you find the same mattress for less at a local authorized Iowa dealer within 30 days.

Buying a mattress isn’t a decision to make lightly. Your sleep quality and overall health are highly connected, so getting the best sleep possible is essential. That’s why it’s so important to make sure you’re shopping at the best place to buy a mattress. Whether you’re in the market for a new mattress today or five years from now, be sure to remember to shop Homemakers!
