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.
Is it firm? I am looking for a very firm one
Thats what she said
They are NOT exactly "very firm". I have bought one two years ago and found them to be soft for my liking.
Thanks, as in-laws have back heart, need a firm one.
That's some congenital disability. :)
@ce5himm: back hurts, not heart.
@ce5himm: Did you mean back aches? </Google snark>
Just do the Chinese firm mattress solution. A panel of MDF or similar over the slats with a thin foam mattress or topper over the top of the panel.
Still not quite firm enough for my liking, though. I skip the topper.
this in queen or… this one from ebay $100 more but.. hmmmm anyone??
I assume these are only foldable/transportable once? Then they're like any other mattress?
Correct. Once they're out of the box, and unwrapped, they unravel into a regular mattress.
They are actually rolled up. You lay them out and cut the plastic bag. They then expand. I dont know how they compress them but you would never repeat it. They are as solid as a normal matress. Or ours was. It had springs etc. Not from Aldi but probably the same.
Thanks for that. Try doing that at home.
That is awesome! thanks for the link :D
That machine is incredible, what an amazing time to be living in!
/r/oddlysatisfying is my shit!
But that is seriously awesome. I need one of those machines.
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?
If you mean the pillow top, yes it does. You can't detach it.
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.
Agree, speaking from my own experience
Fantastic Furniture = garbage
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.
60 Day return warranty at aldi even if you just dont like it… win win.
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?
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
60 day money back if you don't like the aldi one
Not free when the average person will have to hire a huge trailer to take it back.
Try it out at the front of their store. If you aren't happy, you can return it right away.
The bed is on display at the store?
Try it out at the front of their store. If you aren't happy, you can return it right away.
… then hire a trailer to take it home if you like it? Kind of similar to comment above about trailer going the other way?
Isn't it illegal to accept returns on mattresses?
Would this fit in a yaris hatch??
Tie on roof.
Tsk thanks for the reply
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.
Tie Yaris' (… Yarii?) together then tie mattress to roof.
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??
Actually, I suspect it will fit in many 'small' cars. I brought home a queen size one in the box in my civic for example.
@Diji1: Really? The boot in my 'small' civic sedan is bigger (517 litres) than the boot in a 'big' commodore (496 litres).
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….
Same way you took it home I would assume.
Except its only foldable/transportable once…
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?
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.
I got the same base while buying this mattress at the same time. I'm a single person with the king size (because why not) and I've had no problems with any noises from the base at all. Its possible that you haven't done up the screws tight enough or have a dud one. My two sense anyway.
What kind of mattress do you have?
I have a full memory foam mattress which means its very heavy.
@samfisher5986:The one that's being advertised here. I bought the set, mattress + frame from Aldi.
Ah ok that would be a very lightweight mattress as its only got a memory foam top
@samfisher5986: Ah okay that makes sense. Too much weight for that frame to handle is seems.
@R.R.P: not trying to be a jerk, but the saying is actually "my two cents".
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.
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.
Always buy on value - especially with a mattresses. The profit margin is humongous so there is a great potential for savings.
But is it better than an AMG??
Got one too. Back pain gone. Amazing.
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.
I've had no problems with foam mattresses. I have a Onebed now on an el-cheapo ebay sprung slat base.
But I doubt I'm the fussiest mattress or anything else user.
@shaybisc: I'm curious now. What search term did you use to find this one? Because everything I find that comes up has springs in them. I'm very interested in getting one without springs… and the Onebed ones are just a tiny bit out of my price range, but yes, I've been told that you should not be worried to spend a lot on a mattress, because that's where you spend a third of your life.
I think the search I used was, foam mattress -spring -topper
Something like that.
@shaybisc: I did the -spring thing, and I still got springy ones. Did what you suggested, and I got what I was after.
Even dogs sleep better than me.
For the queen -
List price:AU $1,799.00
You save:AU $1,420.00 (79% off)
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.
In a nuthshell if you dont mind a gap between frame and mattress go for it.
Huh?? Dark Matter?
Looking for a real FIRM mattress. Any suggestions?
Looking for firm too
Check the Sealy range.
Wonder how it compares to a koala mattress?
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.
