With more and more brands popping up in the bed-in-a-box space, mattress shopping is easier than ever. Choosing the right mattress, though, can feel like an overwhelming task. It requires figuring out the right fit for your sleeping style and preferences. You’ll also need to navigate a sea of mattress brands — some with questionable policies.
How does Allswell stack up against the rest of the competition? The Walmart-owned mattress retailer comes from a well-established brand, but does it measure up to other mattresses? In this article, we look at the ins and outs of Allswell and give an overview of their top products.
Mattress pricing varies a lot, depending on size, mattress type, materials, and special features. There may also be additional costs. You might need new bedding (if you’re upgrading) and pillows. If you’re upgrading your mattress size, you might also need a new bed frame.
Pricing for Allswell mattresses is on par with Walmart’s budget offerings. All their mattress models are well under $1,000, making them some of the most affordable hybrid mattresses on the market. The pricing guide below is based on queen sizes.
- $ = under $500
- $$ = $501–$700
- $$$ = over $700
Allswell offers three mattresses. Each differs in terms of materials, thickness, and features.
- Price: $
- Type: Hybrid
- Height: 10 inches
- Best for: People on a budget and those looking for a supportive, hybrid mattress
One of the lowest-priced hybrid mattresses on the market, The Allswell mattress is the company’s entry-level offering. It features a mix of individually wrapped coils, charcoal and copper gel-infused memory foam, and a quilted cover.
The charcoal and copper gel-infused memory foam is designed to absorb heat and make for a cooler sleeping experience than traditional memory foam. The medium-firm feel is ideal for those who sleep on their backs or stomachs.
Compared to other hybrid mattresses, reviewers say The Allswell does a great job at isolating movement, making it an excellent choice for couples or people who share a bed with a pet (or two!).
Reviewers caution that it might feel a little soft for people with higher body weight. Finally, despite Allswell’s use of cooling materials, some customers say they still sleep hot.
The Allswell Luxe Hybrid
- Price: $$
- Type: Hybrid
- Height: 12 inches
- Best for: All sleeping positions
This is Allswell’s middle-ground offering. It has all the base model features along with a thicker construction, adding an extra layer of high-density foam for more support and extra cooling features in the cover. It also has added edge support on all four sides, whereas The Allswell only has edge support on two.
While the firmer surface makes it a great option for back and stomach sleepers, some combination sleepers say they also feel comfortable sleeping on this mattress.
The Allswell Supreme
- Price: $$$
- Type: Hybrid
- Height: 14 inches
- Best for: Couples and side sleepers
The Allswell Supreme’s softer feel will appeal to side sleepers and people who prefer a plusher sleeping surface.
In addition to base model features, the Supreme also has reinforced edge support, added pressure relief with a bonus 2-inch layer of foam, and a built-in Euro pillow top that is made to feel super soft.
Some couples report that the edge support isn’t as impressive as the company claims, but many reviewers agree that the mattress is a super comfortable option.
You can buy Allswell mattresses on the Allswell website. They’re also available for purchase on Walmart’s website. Currently, there is no in-person showroom available.
The main difference between buying from Allswell and Walmart is that Allswell offers a 100-night sleep trial and Walmart only offers 90 nights.
Having trouble making your final pick between Allswell’s three mattresses? The mattresses are all very similar, but there are a few differences. Here’s what to consider:
Typically, the thicker a mattress, the more durable. This is likely why the Supreme has a higher price tag than the other two models. If durability is a concern, opt for a thicker mattress.
According to the Better Sleep Council, people with a higher body weight should also consider opting for a thicker mattress. Keep in mind that you should also look for a thicker option if you’re sharing your bed with a partner or pets.
Though Allswell says all of their mattresses fall between a 4.5–6.5 on a 10-point firmness scale, reviewers report a few differences between the three mattresses. They note the Supreme is the softest and the Allswell is the firmest.
So, which firmness should you choose? It depends partly on your body weight. The Better Sleep Council recommends that those with higher body weight opt for a firmer mattress to ensure proper support. People who end up preferring a softer feel can always add a plush topper. Conversely, if you have a lower body weight, a firm mattress might feel rock hard.
Firmness is also about personal preference and sleeping style. If you like to sleep on your side, a mattress that’s too firm may not provide enough pressure point relief.
Thankfully, many bed-in-a-box companies offer sleep trials, so you can try out a mattress before making a long-term commitment.
Better Business Bureau ratings and lawsuits
Allswell has a Better Business Bureau (BBB) profile with a B rating, but it is not accredited. However, there are a few customer complaints listed on the profile. The visible complaints report issues with receiving prompt help from customer service for product defects and delivery.
Walmart online has a BBB rating of A+, but the page features a host of customer complaints largely focused on receiving counterfeit goods.
Walmart has also been involved in multiple lawsuits in recent and past years related to various unsavory business practices, including a recently filed wrongful death lawsuit regarding an employee who died from COVID-19.
We couldn’t find any evidence that Walmart has been involved in any lawsuit related to Allswell mattresses. However, Walmart, along with other online retailers like Wayfair and Amazon, has been named as a defendant in an ongoing lawsuit. The lawsuit is over a Zinus mattress that allegedly has a defect that exposes users to glass fibers.
Product and business practice transparency
In terms of transparent business practices, it’s challenging to find information about what the Allswell mattresses are made from and where they’re made. For instance, on Allswell’s FAQ page, the “where products are made” section is vague and doesn’t provide any information about where products are manufactured.
The website also doesn’t have any indication of whether the mattresses meet flammability standards, though they do mention the foams used in their mattresses are CertiPUR-US certified.
To confirm whether mattresses meet flammability standards, we spoke with a customer service representative, who told us that all Allswell does meet federal flammability requirements for all three mattresses. They confirmed the brand uses a mixture of chemical fire retardants (that still meet CertiPUR-US standards) and natural retardants, like fire resistant rayon and polyester.
In general, reviewers seem happy with their mattress purchase.
Many negative reviews about Allswell mattresses have to do with the feel. Some people find the mattresses too hard and feel as though the mattresses don’t keep sleepers cool.
A handful of reviewers also had issues with their newly delivered mattresses having defects that require product replacement. A small number of reviewers also complain about delivery issues.
Your Allswell mattress will arrive in a box where it’ll be rolled up, compressed, and wrapped in plastic. Order processing takes at most 2 business days, and delivery takes up to 7 business days.
You can opt for express shipping (which takes 2 days) or white-glove delivery for an extra cost. Otherwise, shipping is free. Note that white-glove delivery is currently unavailable due to COVID-19.
According to reviewers, off-gassing (new mattress smell) is minimal and goes away within a few days.
If you buy the mattress on Allswell’s website, you can try it out for 100 nights and return it for free. However, there are non-refundable recycling fees. You can initiate a return via the website.
Once you do that, you’ll receive a list of instructions to follow and a phone number to call when setting up a pickup day and time. You’ll need to use the original packaging materials to successfully complete a return.
If you’re on the hunt for a hybrid mattress that won’t break the bank, Allswell offers great options. While a cheap price tag can sometimes mean lower quality, most customers seem happy with their Allswell mattresses. However, keep in mind that Allswell is a subsidiary of Walmart. It’s also hard to find a lot of detailed information about Allswell’s mattress construction.
That said, if you’re on a budget and can’t find a hybrid mattress at an affordable price point, it may be worthwhile to consider an Allswell mattress. Generally, customers are happy with mattresses from the brand. And, like other companies, Allswell offers a sleep trial and easy returns.
