Nectar vs Leesa Mattress In A Box Comparison (Review)
The major differences you need to know about Leesa vs Nectar Mattress...
In this post, we are going to focus on the major advantages and differences between the Nectar and Leesa mattresses. If you want specific details regarding each mattress, make sure to check out our full reviews of these beds:
We are big fans of the Nectar mattress. In fact, it actually cracked our Top 5 Best Bed In A Box list. And on top of that, it’s super affordable, which leads me to Nectar’s first major advantage.
Nectar beats Leesa on price by a pretty good margin. We think their mattress is easily one of the best values out there. Plus, Nectar almost always has some sort of coupon code available to make the mattress even cheaper. You can CLICK HERE For $100 off + 2 free pillows. Here’s what pricing looks like after the discount:
– Twin: $375
– Full: $575
– Queen: $670
– King/Cal King: $775
Leesa does offer coupon codes as well though. Right now, you can get 15% off the Leesa mattress with code RIZKNOWS. Still, even with the discount, Leesa is quite a bit more expensive. For example, their queen size after discount is around $840 – that’s a difference of $170 for all you math nerds out there. Also, as an FYI, both brands do upgrade or downgrade their promotions throughout the year. As such, if you go to Leesa’s website or Nectar’s website they may have a better (or worse) discount running currently. In either case, the coupons above will still work.
Memory Foam Feel
If you like the feel of memory foam, you’ll love Nectar. Leesa has a little bit of that feel as well but not quite as much – we’ll expand upon that below. For its middle layer, Nectar uses hi-core memory foam and then on top is a 3″ layer of gel memory foam. Further, Nectar actually adds another layer of quilted gel memory foam within the cover. Needless to say, that’s a lot of memory foam in one bed. And it definitely feels like it – this mattress is very soft and comfortable. But unlike a lot of other memory foam beds, the Nectar mattress also provides a surprising amount of support. You never feel like you are sinking into the mattress whatsoever. This was one of the main reasons why it cracked our Top 5 list.

Trial Period / Warranty
Nectar also wins when it comes to trial periods and warranties. Now pretty much all bed in a box companies offer free shipping, free returns, a generous trial period and a long warranty but Nectar takes it a step further. They offer a 365 night risk free trial – that means you can try out this bed for a full year and if you decide you don’t like it after the 364th night, just give the company a call and they will send someone to come pick it up from your home and issue you a full refund. Nectar also offers a ‘Forever’ warranty – basically if defects are ever found in the mattress or it sags more than 1.5″, they will replace your mattress no questions asked. Just for comparison purposes, Leesa offers a 100 night risk free trial and a 10 year warranty. And I recognize most people only keep their mattress for 7-10 years and 100 nights is plenty long anyways but still it’s nice that Nectar goes above and beyond in this regard.
We are really starting to split hairs now but we feel that Nectar does provide just a bit more support. Nectar is about a 5 to 6 out of 10 on our soft-to-firm scale while Leesa is around 4.9 to 5.9. They’re awfully close but if you are a strict back sleeper or you’re a heavier individual, the Nectar will provide a little more support for you.
Leesa is one of the most well-known bed in a box companies out there. They, along with Casper, really helped propel the direct-to-consumer mattress industry to where it is today. It’s a solid mattress, no doubt about it – Leesa wouldn’t be so popular if it wasn’t. But with that said, there’s really no standout features that make you go ‘Wow’. It performs good but not great in pretty much all categories.
More Balanced Feel
Some people may prefer the more balanced feel Leesa offers compared to Nectar. Memory foam is soft and plush and all but we have ran across plenty of people that don’t want too much of it. And Leesa definitely delivers on that. Sitting on top of their 2″ middle layer of memory foam is what Leesa calls its ‘Cooling Avena Foam’. This layer does have a little bit of that memory foam feel but its not overwhelming. It’s sort of like what you see with Tuft and Needle’s proprietary top layer. Overall though, we like the balance of the Leesa mattress – it’s got a very, soft neutral feel and it’s great for all kinds of sleepers.
Payne Train Likes The More Neutral Feel Of Leesa
Kind of a minor point but we have heard some complaints about the shipping time associated with Nectar. We personally didn’t have this issue, but we’ve heard a lot of grumblings that people have waited several weeks for their Nectar mattress to arrive. With Leesa on the other hand, expect to receive the mattress within a week of placing your order. Again, I’m not sure this is a huge issue – buying a mattress is kind of a big deal, it’s like buying a car – you want to make sure you get the right one. It’s not like buying a gallon of milk so I think waiting an extra week or two isn’t that big of a deal.
Bottom line – Yes, Leesa is more expensive than Nectar but there’s a reason why the Company has grown to over $80 million in revenue. They’ve produced a very accommodating mattress. If the extra $150 or so is not a big deal, you want a more neutral feel and you want to go with a big, trusted brand, Leesa is a great option.
