Nectar Sleep was included on our top 10 Mattresses under $1,000
To celebrate, Nectar gave away a grand prize FREE NECTAR MATTRESS to Anglea Meek, the winner of our August contest.
I’m happy to report that our winner, Angela, received her Nectar in a week and 2 days. When I purchased mine Nectar was having shipping delays back in March and April, those have clearly been solved.
Also Nectar changed their logo recently, here is their new logo vs their old one.
So What’s in the BOX?
To our complete surprise, it’s not a mattress, just the pillows that they sent. I guess we could review their pillows instead…
So on to positive things, ten minutes after shooting this video, I fell asleep.
Before that we were talking about how we always have two pillows, but these are large enough that you only need one. We are hoping that when the mattress arrives we will be as pleasantly surprised!
The bag is a bit hard to maneuver when compared to a box. At first we thought we may be able to repurpose the bag later, but we needed to rip it open to get to the mattress. Then there is a zipper cover around the mattress that also needed to be cut. Oh well so we didn’t get any extra bag, but there was a nice and handy opener.
It’s hard to pretend not to notice the slow delivery time, but once it was opened and aired out we were very pleased, especially that the scent was barely noticeable, it was mild and before you know it, it was gone. Of the five mattresses that we have in the house currently this is the one that we are going to sleep on for the next several weeks or maybe more because here’s the best part, you can try it for a whole year YES 365 night trial. It’s one of the best trial offers you can ever get.
Now that we have tried the Nectar Mattress for over 2 weeks, let’s talk about what makes this 11″ all-foam mattress.
Construction from bottom to top
Besides providing basic and deep compression support to the sleeper, the bottom layer with its 7″ of high density foam plays a fundamental role as main base for the whole mattress resulting support and foundation.
The middle layer and its 3″ adaptive hi core memory foam not only adds up even more support, it shapes up the mattress by contouring it. It’s also known as the transition layer, providing both support and bounce at the same time.
Which leaves us the top layer, an inch of mainly gel memory foam providing air circulation while distributing weight evenly and contouring to your body delivering great pressure relief.
We do not want to forget about a very important ingredient, the top cover.
Thanks to its Tencel fiber material. We will talk about the top cover more in a second, just wanted to tell you real quick what Tencel is. Tencel is a sustainable fabric, regenerated from the eucalyptus tree (I know this because I use Eucalyptus essential oil in my diffuser), making it the most echo friendly regenerated fabric. Now back to our top cover.
This cover will deliver you air circulation, which will result to softer, cooler and more breathable feel. It’s also bedbug resistant!! Hi Five all around.
We purchased the Nectar Sleep mattress on 2/27/17. We clicked on our referral link, below, to make sure that it got us to the right place and gave us the same $100 discount that our viewers would get. Fortunately, both worked so now we just need to wait for it to arrive at our door. I received an email saying that it was scheduled to be shipped on 3/17/17, little did we know it would arrive much later than that.
We sincerely apologize for the delays and appreciate your patience.
Your NECTAR has finished production, and is now on the way to our distribution center for final quality review and shipping. Your NECTAR mattress will ship to you on March 29th.
So in our case it looks like we need to wait over a month to test this…
Thank you for your order (#10541) from NECTAR.
|The Nectar Mattress (King)||$900|
|Two NECTAR Memory Foam Pillows – FREE||$0|
|Shipping (United States – Flat Rate)||$0|
|Total paid: $800|
So it has been a month and 4 days and it finally arrived! All packed into a cute little 15″X18″X10″ box. Surely a king size mattress can be compressed that small, I mean they had over a month to do it so I’m sure that’s what we will find in the little box.
Let me tell you, it was worth the wait!
We get so many questions here and on youtube about how long shipping takes. It took well over a month for me to receive mine, and the questions I get center around people experiencing similar delays. We have been clear since day one that it took a really long time to receive our Nectar. So I went to the Nectar site to see if they have tampered down expectations, or if people really expect that they will get theirs in a week. I pulled this off of their website FAQ section:
When can I expect to receive my NECTAR?
Allow 1-5 days for arrival. If we are backed-up with orders…
So they kind of leave themselves an out here. Just assume that they are still currently “backed-up” on orders.
It’s really a shame that they have had so many shipping issues this year, as it really is a nice mattress.
See how the Nectar compares with other mattresses that I have sleep tested:
