30% off Ergoflex 5G King Mattress - $1172.31 ($1699 MSRP) @ Ergoflex

60
WINTER

Ergoflex are currently out of stock of their king size mattress so as a sweetener they are offering it for 30% off using code WINTER as long as you’re willing to wait until on or after 9 Sep for delivery. Apply at checkout. It’s not advertised until you got to checkout with a king mattress in your cart.

Note for the next 1.5 days they do already have 25% off with TAKE25 on all mattresses.

Very highly rated on productreview.com.au. 4.7 of 1,290 reviews. https://www.productreview.com.au/listings/ergo-flex-memory-f...

It’s only moderately rated on Choice at 69% (highest is 75%).

User reviews seem far more favourable in the sense it has helped a lot of people with chronic spinal pain issues. I did research Sleeping Duck quite a bit and while there are many happy customers I noticed a lot of long term quality issues which people were struggling to get covered under warranty. Technically Sleeping Duck has a slight higher rating on productreview.com.au but I find the lowest ratings very off-putting.

Quite a mature company now, being around in the UK since 2006 and Australia since 2010.

Also prominent recommendations from the “Back Doctor” and top-rated in UK Best Buy magazine.

The TENCEL fabric used for the cover is an innovative natural product that is quite interesting.

    @op. Your note on:I noticed a lot of long term quality issues which people were struggling to get covered under warranty.

    I would guess that the biggest issue I think is mattress sagging after just a few years and it seems most Mattress companies love to exclude that from warranty. They all love to tout big 15 year warranties etc but what is fantastic and comfy today………doesn't last beyond a few years and not covered.

    Choosing a decent matress these days is hard, especially with all the Matress in a Box companies flooding the market. Am in the market myself for one but struggling due to all the pros and cons of each.

    •  

      Yeah I got a mattress from sleeping duck with 10 year warranty the mattress is very saggy just 4 years in and now they are making so many excuses and impossible requirements to get the mattress replaced, they actually want me to open up the mattress and obtain and a king sized metal bar (tape is not accepted) to prove the depth of the sag by putting an item between the bar and the sag lmao. I sent them picture and invited them to check they refused

      I hear Koala is just as bad, the warranty is useless on these mattresses don’t fall for it , they are all disposable

    •  

      Yeah you're right. Sagging is the main complaint, between 2 to 5 years. What makes it worse is that all reports are that Sleeping Duck won't take responsibility (besides their belated justifications in response to bad reviews - some of which are consequently very damning, such as claiming the buyer's comfort level may have changed, to which they replied bluntly that it had changed - from comfortable to uncomfortable).

    •  

      That said, there are plenty of happy Sleeping Duck customers too, many long-term, but the sagging issue and difficulty/impossibility of getting it covered under warranty seemed a prominent pattern. I'm pushing 110KG so the probability seemed higher than most of the reports too.

  •  

    Agreed. My mattress started to say after a year or so. They are all crap.

  •  

    @Op you’re right about sleeping duck, I own one at first it’s great but after 2 or more years it’s sags big time and they have all these rules that guarantee you can’t get it replaced or fixed under warranty, my advise is to avoid these companies and read the fine line their customer service is terrible

    Hopefully ergoflex are decent

  •  

    I have the avatar brand matress in a box and I've had it for 4 years without sag. Got it cheap from bedsonline I think.

  •  

    I got my sealy posturepedic few years ago and I still love it , still firm and comfortable, trick is to sleep on all parts of it and flip the mattress feet/head parts every 2 weeks if you don't want it to get moulded in by your sleeping body shape, pattern. Don't be lazy to flip it.

    Bought an ergoflex ages ago based on their amazing reviews. Horrible mattress caused massive back issues for us. We absolutely hated it and after multiple doctor and physio trips we ended up giving it away to someone on gumtree. Not sure how these people get so many great reviews. Rather at first glance it looks like most of their reviews are written by people who live their lives just to praise ergoflex. So many fabulous reviews just seem Very shady …

    •  

      Good to know. Thanks. I'll be extra diligent in the trial period.

    •  

      What suits one person does not suit another. Memory foam mattresses are meant to support every part of your back, and for me this works very well against back pain. While I used to love soft mattresses at first, I now require firmness and support.

    As a counterpoint to the negativity, have had a king ergoflex for around 5 years now, no issues. Was actually looking to get another king single version. It is very different to a spring mattress though.

    The annoying thing for me was the fluctuating pricing… 50% off seemed to be a every two month thing and is really the normal price. So has that changed? Is this 30% off just 40% more expensive tham regular price?

    We have Ergoflex, as well, and haven’t had the sagging issue. However, the pillows were rubbish and just crumbled, so I would give them a wide berth. I found them a bit hot in summer so I got a pillow topper for it. Overall I’m happy with the brand. The smell, initially, was pretty bad but it does dissipate. The sides are pretty soft so you might roll out onto the floor, to begin with.

    Interesting about Koala and Sleeping Duck you would think they would be more proactive. I would be leaving negative reviews on productreview, that might get their attention.

    •  

      Haha lucky we're upgrading to a king size or we probably would end up on the floor with concussion from the side tables :-)

    •  

      Koala is a different story (I didn't mention it above). I don't recall what steered me away from it, given it is 4th on Choice, and the 3rd Recommended option. I do remember Ecosa was a love/hate situation. It was much harder than expected (one of the few rated 'hard' on Choice). Some people love its futon-like hardness, sometimes with topper. Otherwise absolutely hated it.

      •  

        Koala got high ratings because during the initial period they offered rewards for people to leave a review. Although it did not specify that the review had to be good, most people would feel embarrassed to claim their financial reward showing a negative review as evidence. So the ratings were inflated.

    Use winter as the code so you can melt in summer!

    •  

      Yes this is a considerable concern. I have an IKEA pocket-spring + memory foam now and it's not too hot, but unfortunately got moldy under the mattress protector (I guess it stops moisture getting out as well as getting in…). It's actually been a great value mattress otherwise but they don't go to king-size unfortunately or I probably would've taken the safe option and bought another. It doesn't get hot in summer with its hybrid design. Sad to hear Ergoflex sleeps hot too (though it does rate Medium-Warm on Choice like most foam mattresses). Hoping the benefits outweigh the negatives. Might crank the heater up to summer temperature one night in the trial period… Thanks for letting me know.

  •  

    They are all going to be the same mate. My parents have had a koala for just over 4 years and it's still great. They are all foam, so they will all sag at some point.

    •  

      Yeah I don't recall sagging being an issue with Koala. It was more Sleeping Duck that seems to have sporadic major sagging issues (keeping in mind it's pocket-sprung with foam topper). Koala does seem a viable alternative. I think I just saw the number of love-stories with long-time Ergoflex customers who had back and neck issues resolved.

    •  

      Ergoflex is not like the other ones - it is made of high-density memory foam, not simply foam in combination with a metal spring structure or a tiny bit of memory foam. Ergoflex mattresses weigh a ton.

      I own two Ergoflex mattresses, as well as a Tempur (which Ergoflex tries to emulate). While the tempur is a bit less soft, I find the Ergoflex very good. Personally I will never go back to a spring mattress.

      With Ergoflex, when they have a special on their site, they often also lower their prices on eBay, which you can then combine with an eBay coupon for more discount.

      Don't buy the special mattress protector from Ergoflex - you can get a perfectly good waterproof-but-still-breathing mattress protector with Bamboo top cover from eBay for around $20.

        Ahh all foam mattresses weigh a tonne. I have had to lift koala, eva and sleeping duck. They all weigh a tonne. I had a Tempur but I got way too hot during the night (live in QLD), so was an insta sell for me. Got Eva as it has springs in it, was so much nicer during the hot nights, and IMO more supportive and didn't suck you in so much like all foam mattresses. Each to their own, but they all have dense foam, they all sink over time - as that's what foam does…. especially memory foam.

        •  

          That's not entirely correct. If you compare the densities of foam you will find most companies that use memory foam use a cheap type, that is almost comparable to normal cheap mattress foam. Ergoflex uses the 85kg/m3 stuff, exact same density as tempur, which makes the mattress considerably heavier.

          No doubt they all sink in - our first mattress was absolutely awesome at first, and a sunk-in disaster within 3 years. The thing that matters is how quickly does it sink in versus how much you paid. Some brands quantify how much sink-in is considered acceptable after how many years.

          •  

            @Make it so: Yea my Tempur sank about 5cm within a year, and that was deemed normal. My Eva has sunk about 2 cm after 8 months. I don't rotate them at all though.

            •  

              @OnlinePred: 5cm in one year? That is very unusual. Our main mattress is a tempur, and in about 7 years I cannot honestly say it has sunk in noticeably, let alone 5cm.

              •  

                @Make it so: Yea they said memory foam should conform to your body, and you will see an indentation where pressure has regularly been applied. I had to prove I had the correct base etc before they took it back for a refund (which was a huge pain as they are so freaking heavy).

                • +1 vote

                  @OnlinePred: I think it's because, as you said, are in Queensland. Our tempur is considerably softer in summer. By contrast, in winter, when our bedroom is 14 degrees, it initially feels like lying down on a plank. Support in summer is noticeably less though still good enough for me.

                  So you're making a good point here - avoid memory foam in the tropics, no matter the brand :)

  •  

    Was semi eyeing up a "Noa" mattress (https://www.noahome.com/au-en/mattress/). Anyone here currently or previously own one? I'll assume they are all the same and sink after a few years?

    •  

      I don't think it is good to assume all are the same. The difficulty is that it is hard to compare no-brand mattresses, so it ends up being a lottery. As a general rule though, you tend to get what you pay for. I would go with a brand that has a lot of (unbiased/unpurchased) reviews.
      Based on my unbiased experience, Ergoflex has gone well (bought one for my child, and I only buy good stuff for my kid). What I like is that, unlike many other sellers, they are very clear and open about what their mattress is made of, whereas others just say "it is great!".

      But as @OnlinePred pointed out above, memory foam is less good in very hot weather.

    offer ended, any chance we can get another 30% code ? thanks
