Mattress in a Box Single $149 Double $199 Queen $249 King $299 @ ALDI

Will they be comfortable? Who knows. For a queen mattress for $249 it might be perfect for the spare room or the in-laws.

    The memory foam looks very thin.

    I've bought 2 in the past and researched before buying. Very solid quality and comfortable.

    I assume these are only foldable/transportable once? Then they're like any other mattress?

  • +9 votes

    I'd rather pay the extra hundred bucks for this one. Have had one on our bed for the past two years, and still as comfortable and in shape as the day it was bought, and i'm a fat bastard.

    •  

      does it include the mattress pad?

    •  

      Same! 2.5 years in and going strong. I try to rotate it every few months. Prevents any sunkeness. U get that new bed feeling everytime

    •  

      Looks good, but $349 for Queen, $66 for delivery to WA & no returns accepted once you open it - far too risky for a product you can't try.

    The Sleeptight ones from Fantastic Furniture are $50 less, and are decent enough (3 year warranty too):

      I'm just taking a guess here but based on fantastic furniture value/quality in general I don't think it will be as good as the Aldi version.

    I took a punt on it a year ago, just because I needed a mattress, and this represented good value at the time.

    I have a Sealy mattress in another room, that is far more comfortable, but about 4x the price.

    For the price I paid for the Aldi one, I'm happy with it. It's not super firm, nor is it super soft. I can't feel the springs through the top layer and I haven't had any problems with it personally.

    I do personally believe it's best to try a mattress in a store if possible, but that's not really practical with Aldi. I just took a punt on the price, and it worked out for me, but YMMV.

        Though trying to drag a mattress up to the register doesn't sound like a tonne of fun.

          I've been hesitating dragging a garden shredder through the store so much I missed the 60 day window. so yeah I wouldn't be too keen to return one…

    I can highly recommend this one from Focus On Furniture. Bought one for my daughter and she absolutely loves it. 10 yr guarantee too.

      that mattress look fantastic for the price, pity they dont make it in a single would have been perfect :(
      could post that as a seperate deal, i cant see anyone else with a queen or a single pillow top for $199 with 10yr warranty

    •  

      Hmm tempted by this one now. Is it a bed in a box like aldi?

    •  

      Great price, although no details about the mattress (eg pocket springs).
      No delivery to WA either….

    Marce blanc or zzz atelier?

    • +3 votes

      Marc Blanc. I've tried both and the Marc Blanc is a bit more plush in the memory foam. The Atelier uses a "heavier foam" for better choice of words and sleeps a bit hotter. Also the Marc Blanc is better constructed.

      •  

        We have the zzz in our spare room and are happy with it. I have slept on it. Having read crays comment next time I would try his rec

        •  

          same here, i have a zzz in the spare room for my mum and she seemed happy sleeping on it the other night, she did say it slumped in after some time but the shape will return to normal after some time. might check out marce blanc in the future

    Highly recommend buying from this store. Extremely happy with my purchase and so are many others. http://stores.ebay.com.au/Zzz-Atelier-Outlet

        Tsk thanks for the reply

      • +14 votes

        might need to get two Yaris's side by side and share their roofs. Make sure you match speed. If one of you goes slightly faster than the other or if one of you goes through a yellow light and the other doesn't, you might tear the mattress. Turning might be tough though. If it's a single turning lane, you need to find another way.

      •  

        Make sure you hold it with your hand out the window for extra precautions.

    •  

      There's the comment!
      "Will this fit in my [insert small car here]"

      Trailer from Bunnings??

    •  

      I carried this home in a Toyota Echo Sedan. I had to put it diagonally on the passenger seat and rear bench seat.

      It should be easier in a Hatch.

    Now imagine how to return it if it is not what you expect….

  •  

    Can anyone recommend an affordable base? The ones from Ikea are around 350 which is more than the mattress itself.

    •  

      A good base is essential. I've discovered this to my detriment over the past few years, having bought one which does not suit my build (v heavy)…

    •  

      Why not go with the Aldi ones listed?

      • +2 votes

        I purchased what looks to be a very similar base from Aldi last year.

        It was the noisiest bed I've ever owned, my partner and I regularly were woken up due to moving while sleeping and the noise it made.

        It will literally make a ton of noise just from moving from your back to your side.

        From what I can tell Aldi beds are only suitable for lightweight mattress's, since I have a memory foam mattress this appears to be unsuitable for it.

        That makes sense since from memory it has quite a low weight limit as well (including mattress), where other bed frames have no weight limit.

  •  

    So not many have bought the ALDI ones?

    •  

      On sale in a couple of days. From the pics, it looks a bit thin on top, but a person could always get an additional topper from somewhere else.

    • +1 vote

      Got one for my daughter last year. The top isn't that thick and you can feel the springs, I think I'd buy something else in hindsight.

  •  

    We had tempur for 4.5 years, never looked back! Never had back pain since. Everyone should try those out if you really want a better mattress.
    Of course were talking about 5 times the price. Well you can argue 5 Yaris are better than a WRX or a Landcruier.
    I'll let myself out for now.

  •  

    Memory foam/foam mattresses seem to have disappeared from ebay- they all have springs. Big change from last time I looked.

    All foam is better in my book for a spare mattress because you can throw it on the floor when needed- no need for a base- makes storage easier.

      •  

        Have you used these before? Do these lose their shape or consistency over time? And how firm are they? I can't stand beds you sink into. I feels nice at first, but then you feel like your'e drowning.

        EDIT: When I say "these", I mean foam mattresses in general.

      •  

        For the queen -

        List price:AU $1,799.00
        You save:AU $1,420.00 (79% off)
        Now:AU $379.00

        Someone's telling porkies. ;)

    •  

      Looks good - but apparently there's a big difference in the foam quality in memory foam mattress quality depending on the price.

      Also, memory foam mattresses are not the best in hot weather - not good for Queenslanders like me!

      I'm tempted to save up and buy the Ecosa or Koala models - but around $1000 they certainly aren't cheap!

  •  

    I bought this last year:
    Memory Foam is that thick, yet its quite comfortable.

    However I had 2 probelms with it, hence I ended up returning it:
    -Factory machinery stains on mattress.
    - Mattress dimensions were shorter than advertised. few cm gap in wdith and length.

    I currently use the Marc Blanc. I am happy with it and its better quality. yet teh Aldi one was more springy and comfortbale.

    And just a word of warning - These boxes are VERY heavy. I ordered a mattress in a box in a previous ebay sale and the delivery guy said it was the heaviest thing he's ever delivered. Protect your backs, ozbargainers!

      the zzz i ordered last week got delivered and it was a PITA moving it from my office to the car alone - 40kg, even for 2 guys it was heavy. suggest putting it on a dolley for ease of moving

        Same, struggled with a queen going upstairs.

        40 kg is heavy now, even for two people? Wow it is good to see people protecting their backs but back in the days long gone (last week) carrying a 30 kg bag of grain for livestock was considered light work.

        •  

          It's quite bulky so it wasn't really easy to carry alone. I picked mine up at the depot and the bloke there wouldn't even touch it. Says anything 40 or over needs to be handled by the forklift.
