The Simmons Beautyrest Recharge is a very popular mattress that has been getting lots of attention. I put this mattress to the test and found it to be rather unimpressive when compared to the quality you get online.
I ordered this mattress through Mattress Firm. You can try out this model in their stores or just order online or via a phone call. I decided to order via the phone. Instead of trying out in a store I wanted to test it out in my own house similar to the other online mattresses I have tested. The process was very easy and delivery was extremely fast. I ordered on a Tuesday and has a scheduled 3 hour delivery window for Thursday. This mattress does not come in a box so a freight delivery needs to be scheduled.
A nice touch was a coupon for 15% off at Olejo.com and a mint. Olejo.com sells mattress and other bedding accessories.
Here are the specifications of the Simmons BeautyRest Recharge mattress. The specific model I purchased was the Recharge Signature Select Hartfield 11.5″ Luxury Firm Mattress.
Mattress Firm offers a 100 day trial period through their “Happiness Guarantee”.
Below is a video illustrating the motion transfer and bounce of a Simmons Beautyrest Recharge mattress.
As you can see it still has some good bounce for a firm mattress but doesn’t sink in as much as a Saatva or WinkBed.
What really concerned me was tufting on the mattress. As you can see the buttons are just for show and aren’t sewn into the mattress although this is true for many foam mattresses I have reviewed as well.

This mattress just didn’t do it for me. It is a bit too firm for my taste. The top layer looks nice but nothing special. I don’t like the fact that if I want to return it I need to pay a $149 fee. With all the other companies I have reviewed so far you get a full cash refund and aren’t stuck choosing a different mattress in stock. At $649 for a Queen, this is the entry level for the recharge line so I imagine the more expensive models have more features.
In conclusion I would take a look at some of the other inner spring mattress reviews on my site before committing to a Beautyrest Reharge.
