No More Sexy Nerds Jumping On The Bed...

***If you email Amerisleep after placing your order, you'll save an additional $50 on top of other coupons and promotions. Just tell them LambAround referred you!***

...Because One Fell Down And Bumped His Head.

Have you heard of Amerisleep? Sexy Nerd and I finally replaced our crummy (and lumpy! and saggy!) old (but not old enough that it should need replacing) rip-off Simmons (BLECH!!!) mattress and are loving our new Amerisleep memory foam mattress.

Yeah, we have a little bitterness toward Simmons. Can you tell?

We were hesitant about ordering a mattress online without being able to test it, but were reassured by all the Amerisleep reviews I read that said they are the best mattress and by their top-notch customer service. I spent a lot of time emailing back and forth with Amerisleep representatives and they never seemed to mind my many questions. I loved how enthusiastic they were about their product. When I researched Simmons online, all I saw were complaints from other people who had been scammed (why, oh why, didn't I do my research before making my purchase?) but my Amerisleep Googling revealed dozens of happy customers.

"I look forward to hearing how much you love your new bed!!" is the personal email I received after placing my order. A great sign.

The following week, our Liberty bed arrived...

The box was bigger than Sexy Nerd! I do recommend this mattress. I also recommend that you have a second person to help you move it to the bedroom, especially when that means hauling it upstairs, like us.

Sexy Nerd claimed he could have moved the mattress on his own. He "just didn't want to". Yeah.

Pica was hunting the mysterious black bag in our bedroom.
It seemed wise to stop her from attacking it.

Biscuit wouldn't even enter the room.


Sexy Nerd was very careful when cutting the plastic off of our new mattress. He had to be, with yours truly jumping around and saying "Careful! Don't cut the mattress! Are you being careful? Oooooh, be careful!"

The mattress began expanding even faster than we'd expected. Plan to cut that black plastic away quickly.

Amerisleep mattresses must be freed!

It expanded this much in about a minute. Cool, right?

The mattress kept growing and growing!

There was still more plastic to remove before our new mattress was ready.
(And more expanding!)

At first, we were surprised by the amount of plastic. Really though, if it weren't for all that plastic, might a rogue mattress start expanding on the shipping truck?

FedEx and UPS would not be happy.

No more waking up with back pain for this Sexy Nerd.

What did Pica, who was sooo excited about our new mattress, think of it? Don't know.
She isn't allowed on the bed.

Amerisleep claims their mattresses are equal to Tempur-Pedic, but for a lot less money. We have been sleeping on our new Liberty bed for several weeks now and I agree. Anyone can say their mattress is as good as Tempur-Pedic though. There seemed like there must be a way to prove this.

You know those fancy commercials where the person jumps on the Tempur-Pedic mattress and the wine glass doesn't tip over?

Sexy Nerd, BTW, enjoyed this very much!

If you've been wanting a new mattress of your own and have any questions, I'm happy to help.


We've now owned our Liberty Bed mattress for more than 3 years and are completely happy with it. Sexy Nerd says it's perfect in every way. It hasn't had any problems with sagging (unlike our piece of garbage Simmons Beautyrest, which this had to replace) and it doesn't get too hot, which I've heard is a common problem with memory foam mattresses. My favorite thing about it is that there is absolutely no transfer of motion, meaning that I can continue sleeping when Sexy Nerd gets up for work at 5am (and he can sleep through the tossing and turning of my idiopathic insomnia). We're getting ready to break ground on our custom dream home and are planning to purchase Amerisleep mattresses exclusively for the bedrooms.


There's a new feature on the Amerisleep mattress site that states you can receive an additional $50 off your purchase by saying who referred you. I'm not planning to order another mattress anytime soon, but feel free to mention me (lambaround@gmail.com) to get your $50 discount. It's a great deal that can be used in conjunction with any other Amerisleep offers!


  1. We are searching for a new mattress too. Have heard good things about these, but also that memory foam mattresses hold in your body heat and are HOT. Any problems with that? Also, do you have to roll it back up if/when you ever have to move it?

  2. Lol! I love that he did the glass test! I would have too!

  3. WicketsMom, I was worried about that too, but we have not had trouble with heat. Amerisleep advertises that their mattresses do not retain heat like the other memory foam mattresses and so far it seems to be true.

    I haven't tried to move it, but I suspect that we could roll it up and secure if with a few bungee cords if needed. It would certainly be easier than when we moved our crappy Simmons Beautyrest (it folded like a taco when we tried to stand it on its side!)

  4. that is crazy how much it grew!!! i have a knock of tempur pedic too. love mine. i hope you enjoy your new bed!

  5. Awesome! Let us know how it is after a week or so....
    I'd almost buy one just to do the Jumping Wine Glass test!!

  6. That looks like way too much fun! :) We ordered our mattress online, it was a bit nerve-wracking but we've been happy with it for a few years now.

  7. I just want you to know I completely understand the deep love you have for your new memory foam mattress - we switched about 8 months ago and it's like heaven in the form of a mattress. We also did not go with the extremely spendy tempur-pedic - and maybe I would sleep EVEN better on it, but that doesn't seem possible. I rave about my bed and people who don't sleep on foam don't understand - they just think I'm weird. Which I am, but not because of my bed - it is THAT awesome.

  8. when I got my tempur pedic my grown kids asked me *Mom, when you die-can I have your mattress?* No lie-they are THAT good! But the tempur pedic stayed behind with my ex -who had room for a king size set. Fast forward 3 years-Got a new hubby and we need a new mattress but I don't wanna spend my Vegas trip money ALL on a mattress! Found the Ameri-sleep site-tax free, free shipping and 10% discount right now...thanks to your step by step I feel a lot more secure in making my purchase without a test drive of how they feel. THANKS very much lamb and sexy nerd!!

  9. I love your review. very informative as well as entertaining. very clever! i ordered my bed from amerisleep today!!! yayy

  10. awwww love ur awesome review. I just ordered my bed today

  11. I love your review. very informative as well as entertaining. very clever! i ordered my bed from amerisleep today!!! yayy

  12. After 6 months, any feedback/issues?

    1. We still love it! It doesn't transfer the motion when one of us gets into or out of bed, which is great because Sexy Nerd often gets up at 5am for work (and I have no intention of waking up with him!) It also doesn't get too hot like other memory foam mattresses.
      If I had to choose 1 downside to this mattress, I guess it would be that it's a teenie bit too firm for my taste. Hubby thinks it's perfect, but if I could go back, I think I would order the next softest model.

  13. Not manу blogs that dеliver ѕuch сonsiѕtеntly

  14. Your blog is very informational! We bought an Amerisleep (Revere) mattress today. It will be arriving in about 3 weeks. Besides the great customer service we've received so far you guys have helped make our decision that much quicker and easier!!! Thanks again for the step-by-step information you provided! Also loved your sense of humor! Will post more once it arrives and we finally get to try it out!

  15. Did you have to buy a platform for the mattress ? If so how much does something like that cost? We are thinking of getting a king size temprepedic and then I ran across this and it is a LOT less money, but are you getting the same quality?

  16. I just ordered the Liberty bed and bought a memory foam mattress pad to put on top to give it the extra softness. The reason I did it this way was becouse I was also getting the Ergo Invincible Adjustable bed frame and was told the next softer bed was the Colonial but it wouldnt work on an Adjustable bed frame, bummer. But the Amerisleep Rep. promised by adding the mattress pad to the Liberty bed would make me happy if all I was wanting was to get the extra soft/plush feel before sinking to the firm area. Rep. said by adding the pillow top it makes it equivelent to the Tempurpedic Cloud-Luxe which we loved in the store but didnt want to spend the extra $$$$.

  17. Great post! I would love for you to share this or any of your great ideas at the link party going on now (and every Saturday - Tuesday) at 'Or so she says ...' Hope to see you there! www.oneshetwoshe.com

  18. The spring air Victoria rear supporter mattress is one of the most fashionable spring air mattresses. The pure low pricing, coupled with its stylishness and comfort are reason for its enormous popularity. Inner structure of spring with firmness generated by cotton feel topped with a soothe layer Tempurpedic

  19. I am very happy with my new foam mattress which i got yesterday from Dormeo.I had a comfortable sleep last night.

  22. How’s the mattress now? Well, I think that it’s good that the mattress live up to its claim but for a fraction of the cost. I’m glad that you really got the right mattress that you’re looking for. By the way, you’re right on your point about ordering mattress online. People shouldn’t be afraid about ordering things online, but do practice some precaution.

  23. Thinking of making the leap too... how is yours holding up?
