Everything That You Need To Know About Lucid Mattress

There are few investments more important than a quality mattress. If you have ever dropped serious cash on a plush mattress that conforms to your every movement, you probably know exactly what we’re talking about. Thankfully, the addition of new budget-friendly mattress brands such as Lucid Mattress is helping make a restful sleep affordable for everyone. 

We got our hands on the original 10-inch Lucid Mattress and tested it out over the span of a week to see whether it lives up to the hype. As one of the least expensive mattresses sold and distributed through Amazon, we were a little skeptical at first. However, we had heard several rave reviews of Lucid, so we ended up heading into this review with no prevailing expectations.

Do you want to find out more about Lucid Mattress, one of the newest low-cost mattress providers on Amazon? If so, you’ve come to the right place. In this article, our experts summarize their week-long experience testing out the 10-inch Lucid Mattress and, ultimately, navigating their customer support services.

What Is Lucid Mattress?

What is a lucid mattress

Lucid Mattress is a relatively new player in the world of mattresses, mattress protectors, and mattress toppers. Known for their strong presence on Amazon, Lucid offers affordable “luxury” mattresses between 5 and 16 inches in thickness. Since their inception, their mattresses have focused on memory foam technology. 

If you visit the official Lucid Mattress website, you will notice that they are not a very outspoken company. On their “General Questions” page, there is no information about the location of the company, their values, or their year of incorporation. However, their “Contact” page reveals that their support center phone bank is based in Nibley, Utah.

At present, Lucid Mattress has a lineup of 7 mattresses that can be ordered directly from their online store, or from their Amazon page. These mattresses vary in thickness and feature either gel or plush-based memory foam throughout. Additionally, they offer one 100% latex model that is 10 inches in thickness and features a dense “polyfoam” core.

Lucid Mattress does not own or operate any physical, brick-and-mortar stores or outlets. Instead, they maintain a purely digital e-commerce presence that, according to our research, has been in operation since at least 2016. At present, they have a “No Rating” status with the Better Business Bureau (BBB).

How Does It Work?


Lucid Mattress designs and ships memory foam mattresses through Amazon and their e-commece store. The mattresses are manufactured in China where they are compressed and packaged in a box to be shipped worldwide.

 

Their business model is simple: produce affordable mattresses at low-cost overseas assembly plants, dropship them to end-users, and skip out on the maintenance costs of staffing and renting a physical showroom or store. Avoiding the overhead costs that other companies like Serta, Sealy, and Tempur-Pedic must absorb allows Lucid to undercut the competition.

 

Shoppers interested in browsing Lucid Mattress products can view their catalog on their official Amazon page. From there, shoppers can choose from a wide variety of mattresses, from kids bunk beds to adult king-size mattresses. Note that an Amazon account is necessary to place an order.

What Makes Lucid Mattress Unique

The Lucid Mattress Difference

The Amazon mattress market is loaded with expensive, luxury mattresses don’t often warrant their hiked-up price tag. Plus, most of the top results after searching “mattress” in the Amazon search bar are not eligible for Prime benefits. Lucid’s memory foam mattresses defy both of these trends. 

If you’re like us, Amazon is probably not the first place that comes to mind when you want to shop for a new mattress. Instead, a trip to your local department store might sound more practical. After all, who wants to buy something as important as a mattress only to find out that it is uncomfortable, unsuitable for you, or not matching its description? 

That’s what sets Lucid Mattress apart from the big box store competition in the mattress industry. Whereas most department store brands can artificially inflate their prices due to the popularity of their name alone, Lucid Mattress takes a different approach. With Lucid, there’s no brand names or flashy marketing campaigns—only plain, highly affordable mattresses.

Plus, with Lucid, you benefit from knowing exactly what to expect from every order. Major mattress brands such as Sealy offer a host of materials, natural or synthetic fibers, springs, and frameworks. However, Lucid Mattress keeps it simple by only offering memory foam mattresses made from gel or latex.

Mattress Pricing

Although the cost of Lucid Mattresses varies from model to model, they are generally more affordable than department store competitors by a wide margin. For your convenience, we’ve listed the various models on their Amazon store below and have provided a link to each.

Topper Pricing

Mattresses are not all that Lucid has to offer. There are several mattress toppers in Lucid’s product line, each of which provides a natural complement to a Lucid memory foam mattress. We’ve listed their prices and their Amazon link below. 

LUCID 2 Inch 5 Zone Lavender Memory Foam Mattress Topper - Twin

Public Perception (Other Lucid Mattress Reviews)

Since Lucid Mattress is a relatively new company, a strong public consensus around the brand has not yet emerged. However, our research has led us to believe that there is generally mixed opinion about Lucid Mattress from those who have purchased their products.

One of the criticisms of Lucid Mattress that we hear most often is that their support services and return policy are either lacking or an outright sham.

While Lucid offers a 30-day return policy on all items with receipt or Order ID, the customer has to ship the item back out of their own pocket. Since shipping an unraveled mattress can be prohibitively expense, and often cost the same as the mattress itself, this negates the benefit of the policy altogether.

Lucid Mattress once offered a 10-year warranty on their products. However, they have recently quietly removed any mention of this policy from their website and we have been hearing stories of customers being denied their warranty claims. If Lucid Mattress wants to earn our trust in this department, their warranty policy should be made readily available on their website.

Amazon Customer Reviews

On Amazon, all Lucid Mattress products score between four and five stars. While Amazon ratings are always subject to the possibility of manipulation, this is a generally good indication that their customers are satisfied with the product.

In fact, their highest-rated mattress, the 5 Inch Gel Mattress (Twin) averages a four-and-a-half star rating after amassing nearly two thousand customer reviews. This is a staggeringly high rating for a twin-size mattress. Plus, the sheer volume of customer reviews helps quell our suspicions about rating manipulation or bots.

 

How It Compares

Lucid Mattress competes with two somewhat distinct markets: the department store mattress market, and the e-commece mattress market. However, you can only fairly compare Lucid Mattress to the latter, because traditional big box stores offer a completely different consumer experience and operate according to a different business model.

In comparison to other Amazon-based e-commece companies in the mattress biz, such as Zinus, Linenspa, Casper Sleep, and Tuft & Needle, Lucid Mattress is still fledgling. Lucid has yet to prove itself in this market, as they have not been around for long enough and their products have not received enough long-term usage to be adequately judged.

Nonetheless, Lucid Mattress offers the standard industry prices for memory foam mattresses by e-commece stores. While they provide ample comfort for a good night’s sleep, we can’t be sure that they will hold up several years from now. For what it’s worth, our Sealy mattress in the master bedroom is still going strong after over a decade.

What We Think

Lucid mattress

Overall, we walked away from our experience with Lucid Mattress feeling well-rested and with a few extra bucks in our pocket compared to if we had shopped at a department store. Our only major issue with Lucid was their confusing warranty policy which made us feel a bit uneasy about our purchase at first.

If you are someone who needs to try out their mattress before making a commitment to buy, you will want to stay far away from Lucid Mattress. However, if you aren’t fussy about finding the right fit and want to get the best deal possible, we would recommend giving Lucid a shot. If memory foam isn’t your preference, we advise checking out Casper Sleep, Zinus, and Linenspa.

Coupons And Deals

Currently, there are no active coupon codes for Lucid Mattress products. However, their mattresses, toppers, and protectors are eligible for Amazon Prime, which gives members free two-day shipping.
