No problems here...
The Walmart pricing and delivery are good. The futon is name brand and well made with a real cotton shell. No problems here ....
Nice cheap futon
I received a nice futon mattress for the price that I paid. The quality seems to be pretty good for the price however it is a bit shorter than I was expecting from what the advertised measurements are. The side panel, from bottom to top, does measure 6" however the thickness is more like 4" - 4 1/2 inches. It may fluff up to 6" if try really hard. I bought it for my almost 4 year old child's loft bed so it fits our needs and he seems to like it. I did put a plush mattress pad over the futon for a bit more comfort. I have owned futons before so I knew what to expect. If you are thinking about buying your first futon mattress I would suggest you try one out in a store first. They are firm, have no spring support, and mat down with use. But for a child's loft bed the plus side is no springs to bounce him into the ceiling, he is only 35 lbs so he doesn't need a lot of support, and the price is cheap so the mattress is easily replaceable. Over all I am happy with my purchase.
My only complaint was that the product description did not mention having to let the mattress air out for 48 hours prior to using. Other than that, it's very comfortable!
I'm happy with the mattress. I needed to replace one on a 75 year old hide a bed that was invaded by a pregnant mouse. Since the sofa was made by Serta, that name stood out. The mattress that arrived works fine but the name Serta doesn't appear anywhere on labels or packaging so I don't know why that was mentioned on the website. The odor from the cover is very strong and I'm hoping will eventually disappear.
thought it would be more comfortable
Comfort ok considering price. Quality seems good. Good cheap option if you're looking for a queen sized futon (especially one under $200, so under $150 is a steal!) Walmart did a great job processing and shipping. I got the futon 5 days earlier than the estimated date. (This item is usually not sold in the stores)
Cannot tell by looking at the picture
Did not know that this would be a very flat mattress. It looked much thicker on the picture but felt as almost nothing there when I slept on it. Another prove that it is impossible to tell from the picture.
Very thin mattress
I bought this for a day bed. I didn't realize that I was buying a futon mattress, even though it says it in the name. I thought I was purchasing a "twin" mattress, that is what the description said. For a futon, it might be perfect, but it is extremely thin and you can feel the bars on the day bed through the mattress. Since it came shrink wrapped, it would be nearly impossible to put back in the box to return, so I kept it. I may end up using it as a topper on the mattress I will eventually have to buy for sheer comfort. It was only $99. so not a bad price for what you get.
don't buy it
the photograph of the product is not representative of what i received. the mattress that i received is not even an inch thick. the foam alone should be 1 inch! the outer cover is loose and has plenty of room where the stuffing should be. dimensions listed on the site show it to be 6 inches thick and the photo shows a nice plump mattress that fills the cover completely. i can feel the slats of my futon through the mattress while i sit or lay on it.
Not a useful product
This product did not serve the purpose if what I needed. Not a very comfortable mattress and was smaller than a queen size.
Not worth it at all
This "mattress" was so thin and flimsy even for a futon mattress, the thickness is about the equivalent of putting 2 standard comforters together and there's no way I could sleep on this. Not worth the price at all, I will be returning this item. However, delivery was very fast using the site to store option and pick up from the store was simple.
Not exactly what I expected
From the picture you would expect it to be fairly thick but it isn't. it doesn't have the type of cover you would expect and it is so heavy that it is hard to work with
Delivery and packaging was ideal. The matress is perfect, soft and strong
love my twin size
after a really rocky start (order twin, sent queen) I finally got my twin size. I have always resisted any foam added and bought the 4" pure futon (all cotton batting, no foam) from walmart before. true futons do smoosh down over time, so I would replace it every 3 yrs or so. at 70, I thought it was going be too heavy to handle at 6", but was lured by the great rollback price. luckily this is not much heavier, I can flip it side-to-side and end-to-end. (is my bed on the floor, am addicted to futons. yes, eccentric lol) this is a great one! I stayed off it and let it puff up for 3-4 days, and boy, did it! more than 6". was afraid it was going to swallow me up! it is the best cushy futon bed I have ever had, and I suspect the foam thru the middle will help prevent the 'futon smoosh'. no way can I feel the floor thru it. well-made, well packaged. couldnt be happier. perfect!
Nice and suit to my requirement.
Recently came from INDIA and looking for some comfortable mattress and this was suggested by one of my friend and find really Nice and suit to my requirement.
Mattress is very thin.
Happy FUTON POTATO!
I am very pleased with the new Mattress. I could feel the futon springs from the old one and I thought I would have to throw it way! Now I don't Thank you
SMELLS LIKE CHEMICALS
SMELLS!! I let it air out for a week and it still smelled like chemicals. It was not 6 inches more like 4.5 inches. I returned it.
Definitely not as described or even close to the image; the actual futon mattress is almost 2 inches no where close to 6 inches as advertised. Not a good buy :(
Just needed a simple mattress for a custom built platform style bed. This fits nicely on the bed and is comfortable. It should also be easy to care for and tough. It's well made and very plain which is just perfect for the purpose.
I ordered a $100.00 mattress and thats what I got.
