Sleep Trial

Amerisleep mattresses offer a 100 night sleep trial for customers who purchase the mattress directly from the company. Mattresses purchased from Amazon or other retailers will have different return policies.

Returns under the 100 night sleep trial are not eligible until the customer has owned the mattress for at least 30 nights. If you decide to return your mattress within the 100 night sleep trial period, you will get a full refund within three to five business days of picking up the mattress with no cost for shipping, handling, and restocking.

You can exchange your mattress under the 100 night sleep trial. After the mattress has shipped, you can exchange after waiting 30 nights. If you want to exchange before shipping, you can upgrade or downgrade your order. However, if you select the wrong size, you won't be able to return or exchange your mattress.

Returned mattresses do not need to be repackaged, as Amerisleep will arrange for pickup and recycling or donation to charity.

Warranty

Every Amerisleep mattress has a 20 year warranty. The first 10 years are nonprorated. During the first 10 years, mattress defects are repaired or replaced at no cost with shipping and handling included. During the last 10 years of the warranty, mattresses are replaced at 5 percent of the original mattress price for every year the mattress is owned, such as a 15 year old mattress replaced for 75 percent of the original price. Owners are responsible for shipping and transportation costs.

The warranty is only valid for the original purchaser and proof of original purchase is required for warranty claims. The warranty does not cover normal increases in memory foam softness that do not have an impact on pressure relieving, split or cracked foam, or indentations less than .75 inches. Damage due to improper foundation, burns, stains, and cuts are not covered. Unsanitary mattresses may be refused. The warranty requires that owners use Amerisleep mattresses on a bed platform or solid wood non-spring foundation that is completely flat. You will be required to submit proof that you have used a proper foundation to support the mattress when you file a warranty claim.

Shipping

Amerisleep mattresses are shipped to your doorstep in a box via FedEx after being compressed and vacuum sealed. Most mattresses are delivered within three to five business days of purchase. Typically, you will be contacted for a four hour window period for delivery. Most orders do not require a customer signature and Amerisleep does not require that adults are present to receive the order. You can track your order by signing in to your account on the Amerisleep website or contacting the company.

Mattresses ship free to the contiguous 48 states. Paid shipping is available to Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, Mexico, and some overseas locations. Amerisleep doesn't ship to APOs or P.O. boxes.

If you want to cancel your mattress order, you can do so free of charge if the mattress has not yet been shipped. If it has shipped already, you can cancel by paying a 25 percent restocking fee plus shipping fees.

Mattress Removal

Amerisleep does not remove old mattresses, as FedEx delivers new mattresses.
