Sleepy's unethical business practices

I purchased several items from Sleepy's in Farmingdale, now owned by Mattress Firm, in June of 2016 includng a mattress, a pillow, and a protective pillow cover. My invoice # is [protected].

The sales assoicate who sold me these items explained to me at the time of the purchase that it would be financed at 0% APR for 60 months and that by making the minimum payments I would not accrue any interest on the items as they would be paid off in full prior to the expiration. He then applied on my behalf for financing via Synchrony Financial and asked me to sign the paperwork without informing me that the terms of the financing were approved for a 12-month promotional period, not the 60 months he advertised. I set up autopayments as calculated based upon the terms he verbalized to me, to complete payments after 47 months, well under the 60 months promised.

After 12 months, I incurred a bill from Synchrony charging me at an interest rate of 29.99% which starting compounding at the time of purchase. I spoke with the assistant manager of the store (JR0030) who referred me to the manager of the store (AT6802). The manager of the store explained to me that there was nothing he could do about the situation due to the time that had lapsed since purchase. I asked him if it was at all possible that the sales associate was new at the time of the purchase and misunderstood what he was advertising and he reported to me that the particular associate in question had been working there for 15 years and knew very well that 60-month financing could not be obtained for the amount of sale 1168.78 (1075.98 prior to tax).

At this time I feel exploited by the company and its associates who willfully misrepresented the terms of the purchase. I explained to him that there is currently a promotion at Sleepy's for 0% financing for 24 months for purchases greater than 999$ and asked if they could change the financing terms to reflect this promotion so that I can pay off the entirety of the sale as I had previously intended without incurring the exorbitant interest rate. He replied that there is nothing he can do about it but that I could call company headquarters which will likely refer me right back to the store to speak with him.

I would appreciate refinancing the terms to avoid paying interest on the purchase and would gladly pay the remainder of the purchase in full if this were feasible.

I really don't think there is anything the manager can do at this point. Did you receive paperwork at the time of your financing that stated the terms? That would definitely help your case. You may also want to try calling Synchrony Bank to see if there is anything they can do for you. A similar situation happened to me but it was at a different furniture store.

Sleepy's your exchange/return policy

I purchased a mattress thru online in March. After couple months of usage, the mattress sagged down and inner springs were weak. There's no child in my house and my husband and I literally only sleep on the bed due to busy work. I made an exchange and upgraded to a better quality mattress; 2nd mattress was also sagging down and it even gave us a bodyache throughout the night. However, by their company policy, they cannot give a refund nor exchange. This is ridiculous. I am not even asking a moneyback for 1st mattress. At least I want moneyback for 2nd mattress, how are you guys going to pay up the money I spent for hospital due to bodyache? Compared to your company's reputation and its brand name, your company has very poor quality of after service and policy.

Sleepy's mattress

Do not buy from them
No wonder they had to change the name of their company. I feel that they sell recycled mattresses.
I paid over $2, 000 after taking their, so called, test on some machine. This was on tax free weekend. I paid for the mattress and pillow case protectors, as well the extended warrantee. The mattress caved in in the middle within 15 days. I was given the stupid string to experiment on the mattress and told to take photos. A guy came and said, yes, the mattress was caving in. Sleepys refused to give me my money back, so I called the ma attorney general's office. They contacted sleepy, s and after much negotiation, sent me another mattress for more money, charged me for removal of the first mattress, sales tax on the original price of the more expensive mattress, and delivery. When I mentioned the warrantee, I was told that they didn't honor any item after 30 days. But my mattress caved in after 15. How they are still in business is beyond me. I ordered my next mattress online from jc penney. It arrived, the guys unpacked it, brought into my bedroom, I am having a good nights sleep every night for $650.
Go figure!

Sleepy's Defective Mattresses/Bad Customer Service

Two weeks ago I paid $1500 for a Laura Ashley firm king mattress from Sleepy's, plus the cost of with box springs.

After about 10 days a sag developed on the side of the mattress where I sleep. I called Sleepy's and was told to take photos and send it in. I did do so, using a level and showing how I could fit my hand up to my wrist under the level where the sag was. They agreed to replace the mattress. When the mattress was replaced the delivery people showed me that also one of the box springs was broken. (King set comes with two smaller box springs.) I called Sleepy's to have that replaced and they agreed to replace it.

Meanwhile after just two nights the second Laura Ashley mattress developed a sag. I called Sleepy's again.

Know this: Sleepy's will do anything to make sure it doesn't have to refund money for a mattress--even a defective mattress. That's its policy. You can only exchange it. And when you do the salespeople will try their damnedest to use your bad experience to convince you to purchase a more expense mattress. More not his in a moment.

Sleepy's customer service people are trained to return to two or three rebukes over and over again, not to listen to what the customer is saying. In the case of the first mattress, the customer service person first said I had to have the mattress for 60 days before I exchange it for discomfort. I clarified that I wasn't exchanging it for discomfort. I wanted it replaced because it had developed a sag. But again and again he would say that I had to keep it for 60 days before they would replace it for comfort. The first person I talked to obviously was starting to feel uncomfortable about that protocol. He knew what he was doing was unfair and bad service.

When the second mattress developed a sag after just two nights sleeping on it I called again. Same routine. Keep it for 60 days before exchanging it for discomfort. Again I kept saying (growing agitated) that it was a defective mattress. Note at this point I had received a total of four items from Sleepy's: two mattresses and two boxsprings. Of these, three (two mattresses and one box spring) were defective.

I asked to talk to a manager above the customer service rep who was parroting back the same lines as the previous one. The manager did the same thing. 60 days. She even insinuated that I was being dishonest about the sag. A couple time she said, "We don't know if there's a sag, we just know you're telling us there's a sag." My experience was that as soon as I challenged Sleepy's to provide the "guaranteed" customer satisfaction they claim in all their stores, the response was to become more hostile to me. But I held my ground. I actually wanted a rebate. But apparently there is no possible way they will do that which, of course, contradicts their customer satisfaction guarantee. But eventually she said she'd waive the 60 day trial period and allow me to pick something else.

Here's the issue. I have a bad back and bad knees. It took me over a year to find a mattress that felt good for both my back and my knees. When I went into Sleepy's again I was, of course, guided over and over to more expensive mattresses. I kept saying I couldn't afford it but the salesperson even said if I get the same mattress with the sags, it will probably sag again, so if I want something better, I have to buy something more expensive. There was one other mattress that felt OK--not great. Of course it was $800 more expensive. I can't afford that.

I was told yesterday by a customer service rep that if they replace the Laura Ashley, I could not expect them to replace it again, even if it sags, unless I wait 60 days. Same line: You have to wait 60 days to replace it for discomfort. Same response from me: this issue isn't comfort, the issue is you should always replace a defective mattress. That was the third out of three people I had talked to at Sleepy's who said the same thing about the mattresses. I then asked again to speak to a manager. I was told the manager would have to call me back. Here I am next day at 8 pm, and was never called back.

So here's the situation Sleepy's forces me into: I can give the Laura Ashley another try. But if it sags immediately like the two I have had so far I have to sleep on it for 60 days, compromising my back and knees. Or I can pay $800 more for a less comfortable mattress and compromise my back and knees anyway. That's their satisfaction guarantee. But more than this, call after call of customer service reps who appear to be trained mostly to do or say whatever they can to defend the company's products, even to the extent of suggesting I might be lying about the defective mattress, has led me to finding every possible place I can warn people about this company. I will not do business with them ever again. And I will do everything in my power to make sure everybody

Sleepy's Terrible Customer Service

I purchased a twin mattress on 2/14 and cancelled the order the next day. Despite cancelling the order, it took Sleepy's 11 days to issue a refund, which still has not been posted to my credit card. Apparently, even though Sleepy's told me the order was cancelled, it really was not because only a district manager can do that. Customer service had to contact the district manager no less than 4 times before action was taken. Customer service instructed me to call the store manager myself who, I am told, finally reached the district manager. I called customer service no less than 6 times by phone and twice by e-mail to get a refund. Customer service told me that it took so long because the district manager is "busy." I will never shop there again.

Sleepy's Mattress

We bought a mattress a year ago, it turned into a saggy one a month ago.Inspector came and 'approved' that we can exchange our mattress and got a store credit.

Went to the store again with back pain and bought a better mattress, paid a ton of money! and the guys came to pick up the mattress, guess what? oh there's a tiny stain, we have to call someone.. they went down and took off.

About stain: you can barely see it, because it's a dot. We've been talking to sleepy's like 10 times in a year, nobody ever mentions that you lose your warranty if there is a stain. Not even the inspector, the guy who helped us to purchase a new bed, no one! Btw we got rid of the stain in 2 minutes.

About the service:They have an amazing service, that the guys who come to pick up your mattress have the right to run away.

So imagine you are working at a well-known company, the clients are the people who give you money to get a better service right? but your boss says; okay if you see a stain on your client or anything like that you can basically leave the meeting without saying anything at all.

We'll call them and let them know how bad our system is but still advertise our company who has the best service.Perfect attitude!

Sleepy's The seller didn't want to take the mattress back

I have bought mattress from Sleepy’s and Mattress Marshal Inc. The company provided 30 days of the testing the products and after that they guaranteed money back if someone didn’t want the product or wasn’t happy about it. I wasn’t satisfied with the mattress and I had serious back ache. I called to office and said that I wanted to return the product, but the seller said that it was too late. Stay away from these liars.

Sleepy's Horrible Customer Service-LIARS

Sleepy's has the worst customer service ever. Everytime I called customer service each one of them gave me a different policy. I bought a Tempur-Pedic bed from Sleepy's in Ellicott City and I wanted to return it because my body didn't like it. I went to the store in Hanover because that's where I moved. They said you can not do a return you have to exchange it. Then I called customer service they said the same exact thing no returns. I went back to the Ellicott City store they said the same thing. So I did an exhange with another mattress which was delivered defective. The delivery guys said sleep on it the bumps will go away. Well it didn't. I called Customer service the 30 day exchange period was just over so I had to do an inspection and was qualified for an exchange. The customer service representitave said go to the store and pick any bed you like I asked specifically if I could choose any bed and they said yes. I go back to the Hanover store they said I have to pick a bed with equal or lesser value. So I call customer service once again they said well you had an option to exchange or RETURN the Tempur-Pedic but you chose to exchange. WHAT! I had a chance to returnnnn when 2 of theirs stores (Hanover and Ellicott City) plus customer service said Sleppy policy has no returns on Tempur-Pedic. I go back to the sales guy in ellicott city he still says we dont do returns and we work seperately from customer service. I don't understand how the same company can have different policy. From my experience I noticed that they change their policy's each time so Sleepy's always wins not the customer. They lie and want your money and don't care about customer satisfaction. I should've done more research about this company. SO they are bunch of liars stay away from them and save your money and time. I have a lot more but want to keep this short. I talked to the manager she just says sorry. I told her about this bad review she didn't even care. I guess this is how Sleepy's grew as a company. Also yelp removed my comment because it wasn't location specific. My review is location specific this location told me I couldn't do a return when I could. There are also other comments on here that aren't location specific that didn't get removed. I am not a happy customer and as long as I get to return my defective mattress no matter how many times my comments get removed I will put them back.

Sleepy's Mattress

DO NOT BUY FROM SLEEPYS. I have had 3 different mattresses from them and each mattress has had a problem within days of delivery - sagging, smell, or comfort issues. They now tell me that I can no longer exchange the mattress. This company is selling bad mattresses at marked up prices. I question where they are getting the mattresses and whether they are actually new mattresses at all. DO NOT make the same mistake I did. NEVER BUY FROM SLEEPYS. Sears, 1-800-mattress, and CostCo all have real and honest return policies that don't cost you any $150 to return the mattress if you don't like it. Many even offer return policies if you are not happy.

Sleepy's mattress and damage

A year ago last December I bought a mattress at Sleepy's in Colonial Heights, Va. We paid Sleepy's to deliver the mattress. The moving truck arrived and the two delivery men who could not speak English brought the mattress in the house. My husband showed them where to go and pointed out pictures on the wall not to hit. We have a long table on the landing of the steps and fortunately we had removed everything on it to be on the safe side. When my husband realized what was going to happen he started screaming STOP but apparently they did not understand. They hit the crystal chandelier and broke it in half.. Glass was crashing everywhere! There is a large antique mirror above the table and it was also damaged. My husband immediately called Sleepy's and they gave him the correct number. Meanwhile, the delivery men put the mattress in place. By the way, they did not even apologize for the accident. The mattress failed within the first week.. it sagged and you would roll into a hole. We placed many phone calls to Sleepy's but to no avail. Finally they sent a mattress expert to look at the mattress. She found it to be saggy, lumpy and also found where the seams were coming loose. Definitely a defective mattress. She turned her report into Sleepy's and they still did nothing. We hired an attorney to contact Sleepy's about the damage but they did not respond. Do no do business with this store.. Not trustworthy or honest and certainly do not stand behind their products.

Sleepy's Credit not issued as promised

Purchased 2 mattresses on 9/11/14. I found same mattresses next day for half of cost paid at Sleepy's. Returned to store and manager (Ryan Noon) said he would match price and issue a credit to my American Express for the difference. It is a month later and still no credit has been issued! I have called store 3 separate times and gotten promises of credit within so many days of call. I have had to issue a dispute American Express. I will not deal with Sleepy's again.

Sleepy's warranty policy is not reliable

i had bought 3 sets of mattress from sleepys. since the day i brought them i have been having a problem with them. The inspection guy came the report he wrote was not accurate and this and that does not qualify with our warranty policy. I am truly upset and they should not have a warranty policy. when u go into the store they are all friendly and nice and make a SALE and later when u have a problem it's not within the warranty policy. i am truly disappointed with sleepy's i did not expect this from them and they did lose a good customer. I am really upset and disappointed i went and brought from sleepy's. i would not recommend it to anyone bc the warranty policy is horrible and they make fake promises

Sleepy's Poor Warranty Service - feel scammed

I have had the same experience. How do so Many mattresses manage to sag 1-3/8" and not be covered under warranty? Perhaps someone from Sleepys should attempt to get a decent nights sleep with a divot in their mattress which does get much deeper after it warms up from someone laying on(in divot) on it. I'm not asking for anything I wasn't promised when I spent all this money . Stand by the products you sell, call your customers back, measure the mattress after it's warmed from someone laying on it.
When I reviewed the pictures taken it looked like 1-1/2 to me on some pictures and some
Slightly smaller. Apparently they are choosing to go with the picture that means no warranty. I'll be calling to discuss with a customer service manager during the work week.

Box springs are constructed extremely flimsy these days - few people realize this. These days, a box spring must be supported in most cases on at least 6 cross boards and a 1/2" plywood sheet over that. If not, the whole thing will sag, no matter how the mattress is made. These are not you ma and pop's bed sets, no matter how much you pay. Goes double for those 225 + pounders that are everywhere these days.

Sleepy's aLL AROUND POOR SERVICE AND COMMUNICATION

First, the trial period that sleepy's office appears to be a manner to solicit additional funds from consumers. In order to take advantage of this so called trial period, you have to return the mattress within 21 days, but you can't get a refund. You have to make another purchase of equal of greater value (is this a true trial period). Everyone knows that it is virtually impossible to find something of equal value so consequently you end of spending more money each time. I began my quest for mattress in September 2013 and ended up purchasing 1 queen and 2 full mattress at which time I told the associate that I had two back series and would be scheduled for a fusion in the future, so I needed mattress to accommodate these issues. She recommended the Temper-pedic memory foam even though I told her my surgeon cautioned against memory foam. She indicated that she was the mattress professional and I should listen to her. I did, and I had to get rid of the mattress. Because of the comments made by the associate, I was allowed to swap out before the required waiting period. I got the Legend and then the Phenom based upon associate recommendations, both memory foam. What is it with memory foam and sleepy's associates. It is almost like they get extra money or commissions for selling these type of mattresses although they are clearly not for everyone. In less than 7 months, one full was deemed defective based upon the warranty. The other full would have also been deemed defective, have it not been for a mark on the mattress. In less than 6 months the queen had a 7/8 inch sag. (really in such a short time period. Anyway I switched the full mattress for an 1-series, which is also sagging. I will be exchanging it soon. You have to sleep on it for 30 days. Anyway, I was allowed to do a comfort exchange for the queen, paying all additional fees to accomplish this. Fortunately for me in each transaction I purchased the Satisfaction Assurance Plus guarantee. Later I switched out the total memory foam mattress for a king sleeping beauty, euro-top mattress, and then 2 king statesman sleeping beauty after that. Each time these mattresses were delivered, they were bent bringing them up the stairs. I kept h them out until finally someone in customer service told me to get another product in a smaller mattress because when the coils are bent they loose their support. I chose another product, the legend in July 2014. and was assured the satisfaction assurance guarantee would be transferred from the statesman to the legend the delivery of the item caused the issue. I was told to call to make certain that it was transferred, which I did. It was confirmed to me that it was appropriately transferred. I went into Sleepy's on Monday August 25th to use my satisfaction assurance plus to get out of the memory foam mattress. After much discussion I was told by a Ms. Sharon in customer service that because of my many exchanges (26) I would not be allowed to do another exchange or purchase the satisfaction assurance plus for me new selection. I have been scrutinizing the the satisfaction assurance plus document for over 30 minutes and cannot see any language which would justify what was told to me. Also, by my account, I have had only 7 exchanges, 2 of which was due to inappropriate recommendation of the associates in an effort to push the memory form mattress and 2 defective deliveries in which customer service had me to switch out the mattresses. I would very much appreciate being directed to the appropriate language in the satisfaction assurance plus and be provided an explanation as to why this was not disclosed in the beginning of this process. I do not enjoy switching out mattresses, it cost quite a bit of fees to the consumer when doing so and I have encountered quite a bit.

Sleepy's deceptive business practice

Late 2013 my 3 year tenure at SLEEPY'S ended abruptly as it does with most SLEEPY'S employees sooner or later.What it comes down to is that some people are better suited to be thieves than others. SLEEPY'S the self proclaimed mattress professionals claim they make the world a better place to sleep" and recently that they " take the confusion out of buying a mattress". These claims couldn't be further from the truth... Here is a dirty little secret... you be the judge!...
AN INSIDERS VIEW ...
At SLEEPY'S all salespeople essentially work on commission and all are and mandated to follow "The SLEEPY'S Process".
This involves establishing rapport, focusing on sleep, acting as you care, then getting customers to pay as high a price as possible. We were rated based upon highest gross margin and the best liars got the best stores and made the most money. I could sell the same Simmons queen size mattress set to one customer at $1299.00 and another customer at $599.00. The process involved getting the customer to the desk and only if necessary make a few "credible drops". Credible drops range from reaching into the desk and tearing a coupon from large pads in drawers in $25.00, $50.00 or $100.00 denominations depending on what you think will work.. to a fairy tale about "excess inventory" in that style or offering a free pillow or mattress protector. If after a few drops a customer does not buy "the process" mandates "no one walks". If you can't get customer to buy call a manager or co-worker to come up with another so called "credible drop". This will also always be a lie and the manager will make something up like I have one free delivery voucher left which will save you which could save you another $99.00. SLEEPY'S makes the most disreputable used car dealers look like boy scouts. They only care about getting as much of your money as possible then moving to the next victim. This New York mentality is catching up with them and due to their reputation stores sales and store traffic has slowed dramatically.
TWELVE HUNDRED & NINETY NINE verses FIVE HUNDRED & NINETY NINE. The best con men & liars make the most money. If lying to customers and mandating employees follow this process, essentially encouraging grand larceny, is making the world a better place to sleep i'd like to know how. The entire process involves lies, deceit and pure evil for the sake of profit at the customers expense. Their new ad claims the take the confusion out of buying a mattress however when it comes to the price they teach salespeople to disarm the customer and get as much as possible. Salespeople who have any sense of decency or honesty don, t last long.
I encourage anyone to avoid any business dealings with SLEEPY'S or 1-800 Mattress which they also own. I am ashamed to have allowed myself to compromise my values during my tenure and have never encountered any other Company which took advantage of people to this extent. This mentality starts from the top and is rotten to the core They have gotten away with this so far only due to the fact that people only need to buy a mattress every 10 or 15 years and don't know what to expect.. These are gangsters and dangerous people who should not be allowed to operate. My intent is to help protect anymore people from being hurt financially and taken advantage of. If you want a fair deal buy a mattress somewhere else or pay the consequences.

Sleepy's Bad customer service

I ordered a mattress from sleepy's and asked upon ordering if there was going to be a sale in a few days. One of the workers told me there would not be, so I bought a mattress that day. A few days after, I saw an advertisement for a sale that promised free delivery was included. I returned to the store and asked if this was true. A worker at the store told me it only applied to certain products. While I was at the store, I called customer service to check out my options. The store worker, Peter from the H1 store, was a witness to the rudeness I experienced from customer service. The worker on the phone, who would not reveal his name, put me on hold for 35 minutes after I told him my situation. I could tell he was actually still on the phone. Peter and I called back and spoke to someone else and told them what had happened with the previous worker. All of a sudden the other worker gets back on the phone and tells us that he didn't forget about us. He put us on hold for another 15 min and eventually hung up after I asked for his ID and name. This is the worst form of customer service I have ever encountered and this worker should be fired.

I'm not the type of person to write these kind of comments, but at this point I feel it is necessary. I placed an order Saturday October 4th for a mattress and an " I love my pillow" pillow. I received my mattress but not the pillow. I was told I would receive the pillow on 10/17/14. I called customer service a few days after the estimated delivery date. The call ended with the customer service rep. saying the department would contact UPS to see what had happened, and that I would receive a call after. I got a call from UPS instead, they asked me if I was "sure" that I did not receive the package, to check with my neighbors, community office, etc.. I had already done so when the customer service rep told me the status of the package said delivered. After I waited a week and received no response, I gave costumer service a call. This time around I was told to call back 2 days later because UPS investigation took 8 days and I had called on the 6th day. I called UPS to see if they'd be more helpful, but hey weren't. They simply told me the were till investigating and that the sender would contact me.Today I called and because its Sunday, the only thing they could do is send an email and call me back. It has been a month since I placed my order, so you can see how upset I am to be going back and forth with the customer service department and UPS.
