Disclosures

The mission of Sleepopolis is simple: we want to help you discover, research, and select the mattress and sleep products that meets your needs, desires, and budget. We are constantly updating reviews, doing new tests, and exploring new products to ensure our recommendations are always as accurate and helpful as possible.

We take your sleep very seriously – so every review is as thorough as we can make it.  If you ever want more information on a product, please leave a comment and we will definitely get back to you with our thoughts!

Running Sleepopolis is not cheap. From web servers and mattress storage space to salaries, photography, video, audio, lighting, and other production equipment and software, there are many expenses to running this blog.  To make money we have a number of relationships with sleep product companies, and this page well tell you all so that you are informed with all of the information before you purchase.

First of all, in July 2017, we acquired Sleepopolis with Casper’s financial support. Until the loan is satisfied, Casper has the contractual right to repossess the assets and forgive the remaining value of the loan…yes, that was written by our lawyers ;).  If that were to happen, we would disclose our new relationship and let our readers know about the site’s new ownership. We are committed to transparency and editorial integrity.

And when when we say “we”, we should include that our company is a subsidiary of JAKK Media LLC, which also owns slumbersage.com and mattressclarity.com (as well as a number of other web properties).

Finally, to cover these expenses and run the business, Sleepopolis uses referral links. These referral links don’t cost you a cent, but if you make a purchase from one of the companies that Sleepopolis uses referral links for, these links tell those companies that you came from Sleepopolis and lets us earn a commission from the sale.

Sleepopolis uses referral links for virtually all mattresses and products you find on Sleepopolis.

We feel fortunate in that we have an affiliate relationship (either direct or though places like Amazon) with nearly every company whose products are reviewed on Sleepopolis – which helps us maintain our own personal integrity and reduce financial bias on Sleepopolis. Being able to deliver an honest, clear, and straightforward review is our most important guiding principle.  That being said, we want to make readers aware of the incentives at play so that they have all information possible when evaluating sleep products.

Many mattress and sleep product companies send us their mattresses for free with the hope that we will like it and review it. However, there are no guarantees for these companies that we will write about the products at all, and certainly no guarantees that we will review it favorably.

Ultimately, Sleepopolis is supported by our readers from simply telling your friends and family, sharing on Facebook or other social media sites and sending in your mattress experiences and feedback.  Sleepopolis survives because of readers and fans like yourself. For that, we would like to sincerely say thank you. We truly do love being able to run Sleepopolis and help our readers get a better night’s sleep. Thank you for trusting us, and thank you for allowing us to serve you here on Sleepopolis.

If you have a comment or question about how Sleepopolis works, please drop us an email using my contact form. We are more than happy to help answer your questions.

How to Support Sleepopolis

  1. Word of mouth – Tell your friends and family about Sleepopolis. Word of mouth is the best way we can grow.
  2. Social sharing – Share Sleepopolis on Twitter, Facebook, and other social media sites.
  3. Add a link – Do you have a blog or website? Consider adding a link to Sleepopolis.

The links below, like those to the same companies appearing elsewhere on the site, are referral links. This is a comprehensive list of companies that we work with where we receive compensation if you click through the link and purchase on their site (with no additional cost to you).

Referral Links and Products I Received for Free

Most mattresses and other products reviewed on Sleepopolis were sent to us for free by the manufacturer. As mentioned above, many companies will send us their mattress or other products with the hope that we will like them and write a review about them. However, there are no guarantees for these companies that we will write about their products at all and certainly no guarantees that we will review them favorably. I only ever commit to completing a test of their product.

The following table lists all companies who have referral links on Sleepopolis, as well as the reviewed products that those companies sent to Sleepopolis for free. See the key below for more information.

Table explanations:

  • Company column – This indicates whether the respective company’s products on Sleepopolis are using referral links. A referral link is any link that tells the linked website that you came there from Sleepopolis. If you make a purchase from that site after using my referral link, that company will pay me a commission that’s usually a percentage of your purchase amount. This commission won’t cost you anything. If you see a company name without an asterisk in the chart above, that means I have a direct referral relationship with that company and will receive commissions from the company itself. If you see an asterisk alongside the company name in the list above, that means I do not have a direct referral relationship with that company. In these cases the referral link is to a third-party site like Amazon.com, Us-mattress.com, or other general e-commerce shopping sites, and that I would receive commissions from that third party retailer, rather than from the mattress or sleep company itself. None of these commissions cost you a cent. If you see back-to-back asterisks (**) alongside the company name in the list above, that means I am not using a referral link for that company.
  • Free products – I break down by category the free products that I have received into the respective groups above (mattresses, foundations, sheets, pillows, protectors, and toppers). The miscellaneous column indicates products that do not fall under the primary categories. In most cases, they are sleep related accessories (e.g. sleep trackers, active cooling systems, sleep gadgets, baby sleep products, sleep tech, etc.)
  • Multiple free products – Some free product categories will indicate I’ve received multiple mattresses or other accessory products. This generally indicates that I have received different variations of that product – for example, a specific mattress brand that offers multiple firmness levels, varying models, different variations by country, and/or an updated version of that mattress in cases where the design may have been changed.

Amazon.com Disclosure

Sleepopolis is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com. These links operate the same as all referral links on Sleepopolis. If you use one and buy something, then Amazon will pay Sleepopolis a percentage of the sale amount.

Prior Affiliate Relationships

Below are a list of affiliate relationships that the site had prior to being acquired in July 2017.  We plan to eventually update all of the reviews, but we believe it is important that readers be aware of incentives that existed at the time of some content creation.  Those relationships were:
