The Original Purple Mattress is still for sale, but they have added a new member to their family.
The New Purple mattress has three options, the 2, 3 and 4. The system is pretty straight forward, at the lower end you can choose the one with a 2″ polymer section (just like the original purple mattress). Below is a picture of my original Purple’s top polymer layer.
You can beef up the polymer section to a 3″ or 4″ section. Here is the CRAZY part the 4″ polymer section costs a full $1,200 more than the 2″ polymer section. They just released this product on their website, and I’m honestly not sure if it is a joke! I mean the queen sized hybrid with a 4″ polymer section is $2,799!
Besides the choice that you now have for the polymer section, the new purple mattress now has individually wrapped 7″ coils. This will provide sleepers with the additional support that some fell that the original purple may not provide.
You can think of the New Purple as a beefier option for larger/heavier sleepers. I’m a side sleeper and they say that their 4″ polymer section is ideal for side sleepers. So for my queen size they are suggesting I fork over $2,799 to try this. I don’t have an affiliate relationship with Purple and I’m not anywhere near considering paying $2,799 for it. I guess we have a bit of a Mexican stand off huh?
What is Inside the Mattress?
This comes down to your choice of how much you are willing to spend. The 2″ polymer layer with the transition foam and 7″ coils is $1,599, which is on the high side for a hybrid coil foam mattress. However, this isn’t really foam is it? I mean you do get the egg catching capabilities of the Purple polymer layer. The big question is; are you willing to almost double your cost to double up on their polymer layer?
What Type of Bed Frame Works for this Mattress?
|Polymer Size||Twin XL||Queen||King||California King|
I don’t have an affiliate relationship with Purple, so I don’t have any exclusive coupons to share with you. I believe that the price will come down by either a permanent price change or by an evergreen coupon. The pricing on this is just ridiculous.
100 day trial period though so I guess I could “rent one”…
