From Wednesday, October 28, Aldi will line its shelves with a bunch of mattresses-in-a-box, and starting from as little as $149 for a single. A king single will set you back $169, a double jumps up to $199, a queen comes in at $249, and a king climbs to $299 — still wildly reasonable for a mattress.
Whether you’re preparing to furnish a second bedroom or upgrade your own, the sale is certainly not one to miss, especially when you take into account positive reviews on Aldi’s ‘Estelle’ brand mattresses.
“The mattresses-in-a-box have soft sides so there’s less support when you’re sitting on the edge of the bed but we have them for my kids and they’re still comfy to sleep on,” one happy buyer wrote in a fan forum, while another encouraged anyone considering the purchase to “go for it”.
Aldi describes its mattresses to be “medium feeling”, which tends to suit a large proportion of buyers. “Our Estelle mattress is expertly engineered with premium pocket spring technology, a layer of memory foam for enhanced support and a cushiony Euro pillow top for extra comfort,” Aldi says.
While the boxed mattresses are convenient to purchase and transport with little wheels for easy rolling, they do require a strong, able-bodied shopper to carry them into place, which is worth considering ahead of the release date. The queen mattress, for example, weighs 40kgs. Best to clear your boot and recruit a friend to help you.
With all of Aldi’s Special Buys, the mattress comes with a 60-day returns and refund policy, however, we’re not entirely sure how that works yet, considering the mattress won’t roll back into its original packaging once it’s opened. Cross that bridge if and when we come to it?
The Special Buys drop also includes two storage table designs — a mirrored shoe cabinet and a Mid-Century bedside table — as well as three bed frames in either upholstered grey or white.
Available in double ($199), queen ($229) and king sizes ($279), the beds offer a square design with a button tufted headboard and wooden legs.
