Sleep Number Adjustable Beds

Sleep Number Adjustable Beds Review

Adjustable beds can be helpful to alleviate lower back pain, joint pain, asthma and other health issues. AARP also notes that adjustable beds can also be a good choice for those who have difficulty getting out of bed without assistance.

Sleep Number Flexfit adjustable beds have a large range of options for raising and lowering your head and feet, and options like a split frame and mattress make it possible for two people with entirely different sleeping preferences to be comfortable in the same bed. Extra features like massage, under-bed lighting and position presets are the icing on the cake that can make you look forward to going to sleep. Sleep Number adjustable beds pair well with Sleep Number Classic Series, Performance Series and Innovation Series mattresses.

Pros
  • Several financing deals up to 48 months
  • FlexFit adjustable beds come with a 2-5-25 Warranty (two years full, five years limited, 25 years limited)
  • Purchase adjustable beds online or in Sleep Number stores throughout the country

Cons
  • Sleep Number does not offer free shipping on their adjustable beds

Sleep Number Adjustable Bed Models and Prices

All Sleep Number adjustable bed models come in nine sizes: twin XL, full, queen, king, split king, FlexTop King, California king, split California king and FlexTop California king. The price you’ll pay depends on the features with the model you choose, the size of the bed and whether you buy a silhouette model.

  • Silhouette vs. Traditional: Three Sleep Number FlexFit adjustable bed models are available in both a traditional and silhouette style. The silhouette style is an upholstered wrap-around base that replaces the conventional frame. The attractive silhouette option comes in Stone Linen fabric to match most decors.

  • Two-Sided Comfort: Sleep Number’s FlexTop beds can split on the upper half allowing for separate adjustment settings. The two sides on the Split Top beds are positioned together as one bed but are entirely separated so you and your partner can each use your personal comfort adjustments for your upper and lower bodies.

  • Reduce Your Partner’s Snoring: If you sleep next to one of the 25 percent of adults who habitually snore, Sleep Number has a solution. With a touch of a button, you can raise your partner’s head while they sleep to allow them to breathe more easily and snore less.

Sleep Number Q&A

  • Does the FlexFit adjustable bed come with a Sleep Number mattress?
    Sleep Number mattresses are sold separately from the FlexFit adjustable bases, but every current Sleep Number mattress fits on one or more FlexFit bases. Although Sleep Number doesn’t recommend it, you can use a mattress from another manufacturer on their adjustable beds. Read up on how to select the right mattress for your adjustable bed if you want to try another brand.

  • Can I use my headboard and footboard with a Sleep Number adjustable bed?
    You can use your headboard with a Sleep Number FlexFit adjustable bed if you buy the specially-designed headboard brackets sold separately online or in Sleep Number stores. The only adjustable base that works with a footboard is the FlexFit 1. The FlexFit 2 and FlexFit 3 can elevate the foot of the bed, so there are no options for attaching a footboard.

  • Can FlexFit adjustable beds accommodate older Sleep Number mattresses?
    Older Sleep Number mattresses may work with the FlexFit bases. Call Sleep Number support or chat with an agent on their website to determine which adjustable bed frames may be compatible with your existing Sleep Number mattress.

  • How difficult is it to change sheets on a Sleep Number adjustable bed?
    It’s easier to change the sheets on an adjustable bed than a standard bed:

    1. Raise the head and foot of the bed
    2. Place the sheets on the corners
    3. Lower the bed with one touch on the remote to tighten the sheets around the mattress

    Split mattresses and FlexTops use a specially-made sheet that allows each side of the bed to move independently, and Sleep Number carries a wide variety of those sheets.

  • Can I put a Sleep Number adjustable bed on my existing wood bed frame?
    FlexFit adjustable bases in the traditional style can usually fit inside of your existing free-standing bed frame. Contact a Sleep Number representative to determine if your frame dimensions will work with the bed you are considering.

Conclusion

While adjustable beds are more expensive than a standard bed, the additional benefits they offer may well be worth the price. Sleep Number has a solid track record of delivering what they promise — a good night’s rest — and for many, pairing up a Sleep Number mattress with a FlexFit Adjustable Base has been a good decision. If you’re in the market for an adjustable bed base, browse Sleep Number’s FlexFit models to see how they measure up.

We spent a lot of money on an adjustable sleep number mattress and frame....simply put, save your money and buy something else. Nothing but backaches and terrible customer service with Sleep Number.

As it turns out, our sales associate at the mall really didn't know what she was talking about, just wanted to keep 'upselling' their product. Now that we're over 110 days, there is nothing that can be done. Worst mattress and bed I have ever bought. Overpriced and not worth it.

Bought this bed about 5 years ago. I have had multiple surgeries on my back. Most uncomfortable bed I ever owned. King size xl twin split.

My question to the company is can you put a different mattress on top of the existing base. I have tried every Sleep Number on the air chambers with no comfort. I can’t sleep in it. I sleep on the couch. Paid $7000 for this bed and hate to throw it out.

Maybe someone with the company can tell me if it’s still under warranty? I know most of the cost is with the frame. It’s just the bladders are useless for comfort.

Bought the biggest king Sleep Number bed available. Had problems from about 6 months after buying it. Gave 6300.00 for it. Called the store where I bought it. Told me nothing they could do about it.

Told me to call company, they told me to perform checks as to why it was leaking, did that. Bought new air chamber. Still leaks.

Company will not refund money for air chamber. Have been lied to from day one. Wouldn’t suggest anyone buy a sleep number bed. Nothing but problems.

Worst experience ever. We purchased the mattress and the adjustable base and found that the mattress just did not provide the relief we needed. The sides were replaced by sleep number 3 or 4 times for free until we ran out of the warranty. The sides would not hold up.

According to the company the owner should not sit on the sides of the bed. We couldn't return it because we had purchased the base and it was non refundable. We are careful shoppers and thought we had made a good investment from a reliable company but we sure were wrong. I would not recommend this mattress to anyone. You are wasting your money. I sure regret it.

I bought a Sleep Number Bed with a Flex 2 base. From the beginning it was a terrible experience. First the bed was delivered but the base was missing a bunch of pieces and couldn’t be used. The bed didn’t feel like the one in the store at all and more or less felt like a blow up air mattress with a pad on top. But we gave it two months to try and let our bodies get used to it.

After two months we went back to sleeping on our old mattress and asked Sleep Number to come pick up the bed and give us a refund(120 night in home trial on beds). But we were told that we could have $3000 out of $8000 back because the mattress has a 120 night in home trial on it but the base the sales man pushed on us is none refundable.

So now we have a $5000 sleep number base we can’t use. Oh and yes $5000 base because apparently all the discounts we got were on the refundable mattress not the none refundable base. Worst experience ever and for a company that charges that much for product they don’t really seem to care whether or not you are happy with it.
