Hello again everyone. Today, I wanted to create this post to document my experience with the Nest Bedding Raven Flippable Hybrid Mattress. I came here to The Mattress Underground (TMU) to make a decision on an ideal mattress for me, and my First Mattress for Apartment post shows what stats I worked with, what options I received with the help of Bastilie, and how I arrived at my final decision.
I’m creating this post and will update it to share my overall experience with Nest and with the Raven Mattress in case someone else needs it in the future, so they can hopefully make their mattress searching more efficient. If you’re reading this and have any doubts about posting here to get a deeper understanding on what works best for you, I would highly encourage anyone to overcome that fear. This forum is incredible, and so are the people here.
At the time of writing (08/14/2023), this mattress sells at the following sizes:
The Raven was sold during this time-frame at a 50% discount, so it was incredibly affordable for me. This contributed greatly to my decision in buying the mattress alongside the following:
- Nest is one of TMU’s many trusted members
I believe this is due to the quality of materials used as well as their transparency in the components used to manufacture their mattress. These factors help ensure you’re getting the right mattress for your needs, and are aware of the critical components that you may want to monitor over time.
- Nest has incredibly generous 365 trial period and lifetime warranty with each mattress.
- The Raven is a flippable mattress with a Medium/Firm configuration.
I prefer Medium, but I also understand that for whatever reason, my Posture & alignment, Pressure relief, and Personal preferences (PPP) can change at any point, thus altering my preferences. Therefore, having the option to flip the mattress allows me to adjust for my needs. Furthermore, if you are considering having guests, the mattress offers great flexibility to have both individual’s needs met. If you or your guest somehow find the one side more comfortable than the other, you can always adjust for them, or buy a mattress pad/topper to address individual needs.
Now I’ll discuss some of my experiences with Nest and my experiences with the Raven mattress in separate sections.
Experience with Nest
8/14 - Purchased the Raven Hybrid from Nest Bedding (ETA: 10 - 15 days). Before buying, I wanted to secure a few items alongside my order:
- A mattress protector
- Bedding/Sheets set
I ended up with only 2/3 of those items, but this was by choice as I wanted more time to think about if I wanted a duvet or comforter. If you are considering any Nest product, I highly encourage you to reach to call the Nest Bedding representatives.
I called Nest’s product support line to get some clarification on the quality of their protectors. It took some time to get someone on the phone, but I called back later in the afternoon and got someone immediately. The rep I spoke with (not sure if I can name them) was incredibly helpful in explaining the differences across their products. I was satisfied here, but they went beyond and offered to immediately assist me in securing the best possible discounts for my purchases, keep in mind, I hadn’t even mentioned TMU discount opportunities at all. So, with their assistance, I was able to secure the following items for a final sale price of $1,090.95 (before taxes).
- Raven Hybrid Flippable Mattress - $849.50
- 18" Wool and Cotton Mattress Protector - $119.63
- Sateen Organic Cotton Sheet Set + Pillowcases - $130.82
- 18" Cooling Waterproof Mattress Protector - Free
With the rep’s help, they were able to not only help me get one of the mattress protectors complimentary with my purchase, but also added discounts (in addition to the 15% discount from the sale) to Sateen sheets set and Wool and Cotton Mattress Protector, which was pretty incredible in my opinion.
Will update later on the overall experience, but so far working with, and buying from Nest has been awesome.
