Mattress on bed in blue room

As boxed mattresses have increased in popularity over the last decade, the number of competitors who sell a mattress in a box through ecommerce platforms has also increased. BedInABox® is the original mattress in a box that gave rise to the ecommerce mattress industry by allowing customers the ability to buy mattresses from the comfort of their home. Over time, the process for compressing, rolling, and packaging a mattress into a box, as well as selling and purchasing mattresses online, has become much more practical. While BedInABox® mattresses have always been constructed with high quality memory foam that is manufactured right here in the USA, some of our competitors use other technologies and materials. Purple is well known for the Purple Grid technology used in its Purple Mattress. Below, we will explore the key similarities and differences between BedInABox® and Purple.

Mattress Selection

Purple, just like BedInABox®, offers Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, and California King size mattresses. This diversity of options is great when shopping for the whole family. However, Purple offers only three different mattress models, while BedInABox® offers seven. Our goal is to make sure every type of sleeper can find their ideal bed, which is why we have developed mattresses with varying heights and levels of firmness.

BedInABox® Memory Foam versus Purple Grid Technology

Both BedInABox® and Purple mattresses are made in the USA and both companies use CertiPUR-US certified foam to construct their mattresses. This certification means that the foam used to produce both companies’ mattresses is free of certain toxic chemicals. What distinguishes a BedInABox® mattresses from a Purple mattress is the use of memory foam. Purple uses no memory foam whatsoever in their mattresses. Instead, they use the Purple Grid, which is made from a hyper elastic polymer. Purple claims that the Purple Grid sleeps cooler and lasts longer than memory foam. This claim may be true if you are buying cheap, imported memory foam, but that’s not what you get with BedInABox®. We have mastered memory foam cooling technology with our CoolRest memory foam- which we make ourselves right here in the USA. We are also confident that our memory foam mattresses are durable, which is why we stand behind a 20-year warranty. In contrast with us, Purple only offers a 10-year warranty, which speaks for itself.

Durability

At BedInABox®, we promise that your mattress will be comfortable and long lasting, which is why we stand behind a 20-year warranty. Our reviews speak for themselves- please see for yourself- our sleepers can go to bed confident that their mattress will maintain its quality. On the other hand, when looking at reviews for Purple, some Purple customers have found that their mattress begins to show indentations after only a few months.

Suitability

BedInABox® has been lauded by both back and side sleepers for its comfortable memory foam mattresses. You can rest assured that BedInABox® has designed products that will be comfortable regardless of your preferred sleeping position. Although Purple has also received similar praise, it also has a sizable number of customers who immediately regret purchasing the Purple Mattress on the first night. Many of these complaints are from both back and side sleepers. There is also evidence that heavier sleepers find the Purple Grid to be uncomfortable.

Price

Shipping and delivery are free when purchasing mattresses from both BedInABox® and Purple. A queen Purple mattress retails for $1,399 while our Original Queen is only $999. Not only are our memory foam mattresses less expensive, but we also offer regular discounts on sleep products sitewide. Just like Purple, we also offer financing so that you can pay for your mattress in monthly installments through Affirm. We are committed to making your purchase easy and affordable!

Trial Period

BedInABox® has a 120-night free trial period for our mattresses, while Purple only lets you try out the Purple Mattress and Purple Grid for 100 nights. As we have already mentioned, we offer a 20-year warranty while our competitor offers only 10 years. BedInABox® is committed to delivering a high-quality mattress that gives you the best night’s sleep possible. You can rest comfortably knowing you purchased a BedInABox® memory foam mattress.

Adjustable Base Options

At BedInABox®, we offer two adjustable base options: the MotionInABox® 1.0 and 2.0, and Purple similarly offers two options, the Ascent Adjustable Base and the SleepGenius™ Smart Base. However, the pricing and availability of sizes makes a real difference and sets our adjustable bed frames apart. Purple’s Ascent Adjustable Base is currently only available in King size and starts at $1,999, and the SleepGenius™ Smart Base is currently available in Queen size also starting at $1,999. We offer adjustable bases in sizes ranging from Twin XL to Split King, and the MotionInABox® 1.0 starts at $849 while the MotionInABox® 2.0 starts at $1,249.

In addition, our MotionInABox® bed frames come with a wider variety of features than Purple’s Ascent Adjustable Base while remaining more affordable. While Purple and BedInABox®’s adjustable bases share features such as a zero-gravity setting and anti-snore positions, the MotionInABox® 2.0 comes with additional features such as a voice-controlled wand, 2-zone massage setting, four programmable sleep positions, and remote flashlight. On the other hand, Purple’s SleepGenuis™ Smart Base is set up a bit differently, such as by using pink noise and an app to control all features. Like the MotionInABox® 2.0, the Smart Base comes with a few extra features to set it apart from more basic adjustable bed frames like the Ascent and MotionInABox® 1.0. However, the Smart Base comes with only a 3-year warranty, while the Ascent and both BedInABox® adjustable bases come with a 10-year warranty. To learn more about your options when it comes to adjustable bases and how they work, we’ve created an Adjustable Base Buying Guide found at the bottom of our website.

What's New This Year?

BedInABox® continues to bring new products to market. This year we introduced our MotionInABox® 2.0 full-body adjustable base bed. We also introduced the Upholstered Platform Bed and Headboard and our newest mattress, the Original Hybrid.

Purple is also continuing to innovate and bring new products to the market. In 2023, they introduced three new mattresses. The new mattresses include the Purple Deluxe (one layer of polyfoam and 8 inches of coils), the Purple Supreme (two layers of polyfoam and 8 inches of coils), and the Purple Grand (two layers of Hyper-Elastic Polymer, two layers of polyfoam, one layer of Talalay latex, and 8 inches of coils).
