For you the sleep-product shopper, it is the best of times and it is the worst of times. Never before has there been a greater quantity and quality of sleep products available than there is today. Sadly, however, finding trustworthy reviews for these products has never been harder.
Our mission is to be your no-nonsense, no-bias, no-dishonesty, no-incompetence, no-sleaze, no-bullsh*t champion in your search for the right sleep product.
We are the only no-commission, non-affiliate sleep-product review website. This means we do not get paid by sleep-product companies or retailers for sending business their way (even though we could make heaps more money if we did). Our mission is to be a true consumer advocate, not a marketing tool of sleep-product companies masquerading as one. Put simply, we have integrity.
We do not make product endorsements including “best” or “top” lists based merely on our opinion. We instead let our visitors decide what is best for their specific wants and needs – as only they properly can – by providing comprehensive sleep-product data and ratings based on actual owner experiences.
We use advertising to generate revenue to fund our research. We do not select the ads or the advertisers that appear; the ads are auto-generated and auto-selected by a third party – Google Ads – based on several factors including relevance. Revenue earned is paid to us by Google, not by advertisers.
Since we began in 2008, we have been the leader and the main source of innovation in the sleep-product review space. Those familiar with the space know that most other sleep-product review websites are basically copies of us.
Our reviews and ratings are based on experiences systematically collected from actual sleep-product owners. Our data collection methodology – which has been refined over ten years – produces sleep product ratings that provide correct and meaningful insight into sleep-product performance and capabilities.
I started this website in 2008 because I wanted to have an outlet for my passion and interest in sleep.
I can truly appreciate a good night's sleep because I have not always been able to get one. I was an insomniac for over 10 years. I had bouts that lasted months in which I did not get more than a couple hours of sleep a night. You can read my whole story and what I did about it.
Sleep Like The Dead started small but now evaluates and rates hundreds of sleep products based on over 390,000 actual consumer experiences.
On our site, you'll find several categories of sleep-related products for which we provide up-to-date and comprehensive ratings, including mattresses, mattress toppers, pillows, white noise machines, bedding, sleep hygiene products and more.
We've had millions of visitors since 2008, and our findings have appeared in The Wall Street Journal, US News and World Report, Barron's, Chicago Tribune, USA Today (The Best), St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Toronto Star among many others.
Most importantly, judging by the tons of unsolicited praise we get from visitors, we have helped many people sleep better and avoid sleep-product buying mistakes.
Now and for the future I promise that Sleep Like The Dead will continue to be a truthful, independent and unbiased source of helpful information for those seeking better sleep.
