Nectar Mattress 365 Night Trial: What Is it and How Does it Work?

Shopping online is a convenient, efficient, and often easier way to buy things these days, which is why e-commerce has exploded over the past decade. However, while the buying part of the equation is often more pleasant and easy online, any time you buy something via your computer or phone, there’s the risk that it won’t be what you were expecting and hoping for. Then, not only do you have to invest more time in restarting your product search, but you also have to navigate the hassle of returning your online purchase (if even possible!) and possibly eat the cost of shipping.

In many ways, a great mattress seems like it would be one of the hardest products to buy online. After all, without being able to luxuriously flop down onto every mattress on the showroom floor to test them out, how will you know if the mattress is right for you? What if it’s not? Nectar has come up to an ingenious and generous solution to these problems with their beloved

Nectar Memory Foam Mattress

and their 365-night no-risk trial.

What Is The Nectar Mattress?

The Nectar Mattress is a surprisingly high-quality memory foam mattress with a price point that’s significantly lower than competitors in its class. Though it’s also available in the upgraded Nectar Premier Mattress and Nectar Premier Copper Mattress varieties, the standard Nectar mattress is amazingly supportive yet comfortable, masquerading as a significantly more expensive mattress than its $799 price tag would indicate.

The Nectar mattress is 12 inches thick and composed of five layers, each manufactured from premium materials. The outer quilted cool cover is made from a soft, breathable poly-blend with heat wicking, cooling technology to promote airflow and prevent nighttime sweating. Below that, the Nectar Smart Layer is a 3-inch layer of gel-infused memory foam featuring phase-change material that auto-adjusts to your body temperature to help keep you cool and dry. Below that, layers of supportive foam are both comfortable and responsive to help cradle the contours of your body whether you’re a side sleeper, back sleeper, or front sleeper. By adapting to your body shape and weight, the Nectar mattress eliminates pressure points and spinal, shoulder, and hip pain.

Due to the high-density memory foam, which displays properties of a viscous liquid, very little motion is transferred across the mattress, a recipe for a sound night of sleep even if you share your bed with a restless sleep companion. Finally, the Nectar mattress ships for free in a small, compact box and comes with two free pillows and luxurious sheets for free. It is backed by a lifetime warranty.

What is the Nectar 365 Night Trial?

The Nectar mattress seems to be nearly universally adored by customers,  so the risk of buying the mattress sight unseen and hating it is slim, Nectar offers customers the most generous mattress trial period in the industry in case you are an outlier. Customers have 365 days from the date of purchase to return the Nectar mattress for a full refund. This means that there is a full year to sleep on the Nectar mattress every night and then decide to return it should you not like the mattress.

How Does the Nectar 365 Night Trial Work?

After placing your order for a Nectar mattress,

you have 365 nights to try it out

. The only caveat is that you cannot issue a return between nights 1-30. Nectar wants you to give the mattress 30 nights to see if you fall in love.

After night 30, if you are still dissatisfied, you can initiate a full refund. To do so, email or call 1-888-425-4854. Nectar does not charge return shipping. Instead, they’ll send you a free label or help you find a local donation center for the mattress. You’ll owe nothing. After the return is complete or the donation is made, Nectar sends you a full refund in whatever form you originally paid for the mattress. As an added perk, you get to keep, donate, or dispose of the free pillows, sheets, or any other promotional products you got with your Nectar matures purchase.

What Happens After the Nectar 365 Night Trial?

Further evidence of their commitment to superior customer service, should you keep your Nectar mattress longer than the 365 Night Trial, you’ll have a lifetime warranty on the mattress.

Final Words

The Nectar 365 Night Trial is a pleasantly simple, hassle-free process and eliminates the risk of buying a mattress online without ever testing it out.

How to negotiate a 4 day workweek and improve your work-life balance today
This is how to reset your work-life balance
how to negotiate a 4 day work week two men meeting in office

It would be an understatement to call what has happened to the workforce an upheaval. When the pandemic sent millions of workers remote in March of 2020, businesses and employees quickly discovered that people could be productive from home. The pandemic’s mental health effects saw people re-evaluating the need for work-life balance and what they wanted from a job. As the country began opening back up, the Great Resignation and workforce shortages gave employees the upper hand in negotiating everything from higher wages to remote or hybrid work and even a 4 day workweek.
The idea of showing up to work 4 days a week — virtually or in-person — may sound so 2022. However, the concept was supposedly on the horizon in 1956, according to a New York Times article quoting then-Vice President Richard Nixon.
Generations later, the 4 day workweek may finally be catching on. Here’s why you should consider it and how to negotiate one.

Is a 4 day workweek worth it?
The answer to this question isn’t black-and-white. It will vary based on the individual and industry. However, one case study by the New Zealand estate planning firm Perpetual Guardian from 2018 found numerous benefits, including:

This is how the Titanic’s engine worked before an iceberg sunk the ship
The Titanic's engine was a pretty marvelous innovation
RMS Titanic floating on water in an old black-and-white photo.

The Olympic-class ocean liners were some of the largest and most luxurious passenger ships of their time. The Olympic, Titanic, and Britannic were built by Harland & Wolff for White Star Liners during the first half of the 1910s. While the sister ships stood apart because of their immense size and lavish accommodations, they all had powerful steam engines. Since the Titanic is the most famous of the ships because it sank (not to mention the James Cameron movie), we’ll cover how its engine worked before it sunk.
And if you're a visual person? One helpful Redditor recently posted the video below to the subreddit r/educationalgifs. It's part of a longer look at the Titanic from Jared Owen, who has got some pretty incredible 3D animations.

Instead of choosing to go with a turbine engine, which was found on the Titanic’s main rival, the Cunard, Harland & Wolff decided to stick with two triple-expansion steam engines. The triple-expansion steam engines run on steam (duh) from the burning of coal in the ship’s boilers. Once the steam is made, it has a maze to run through before turning into power to move the ship.
Once the steam exits the boilers, it travels through steam lines toward the triple-expansion steam engines. The steam enters the first cylinder that’s called the high-pressure cylinder at 215 PSI to act on both sides of the piston to push it up and press it down. Once it’s done at the first cylinder, it moves on to the intermediate cylinder at a reduced pressure of 78 PSI to, once again, move the piston up and down. Then, the steam is routed to two low-pressure cylinders at 24 PSI to, you guessed it, move the pistons up and down.
After moving pistons up and down and dropping pressure throughout the trip, the steam exits the low-pressure cylinders at 9 PSI toward one of two nearly 24-foot diameter propellors. Exhaust steam escaping from the triple-expansion engines also powers a Parsons’ turbine to drive a central 16.5-foot diameter central propeller. The propellers caused the Titanic to move.
It’s incredibly advanced tech, and this is just a general overview of what’s happening. If you’re a numbers type of person, the triple-expansion steam engines were good for 15,000 horsepower each when operating at 75 revs per minute. The Titanic’s entire powerplant was rated at roughly 59,000 horsepower, allowing the 52,000-ton ship to travel at up to 23 knots.
While making that kind of power from steam is impressive, the way the Titanic ensured zero waste was just as skillful. Once the steam exits the Parsons’ turbine, it enters a condenser at 1 PSI. Cold seawater is brought into the condenser to cool down the steam, which allows it to go from a gas to a liquid to be sent back to the boilers to be used as feed water for another journey through the entire process.
The Titanic may be known for sinking, but getting a boat of its size moving on the water with steam was an accomplishment. Quite frankly, the rest of the ship was just as impressive, and well worth a look at the full video from Jared Owen.

The Surgeon General says workplace stress can be toxic to mental health
Streesed man

The Surgeon General recently republished numbers from a 2021 Mind Share Partners report that found workplace trends like quiet quitting and the Great Resignation as indicators that Americans are tired of endless hours, unpaid leave, and chronic stress in the workplace. Remedying the issue will require employers to change the way they operate to help alleviate workplace stress and improve their staff’s mental health.

In an interview with The Manual, Bernie Wong, founding partner at Mind Share Partners, discusses the nonprofit firm’s stance and strategy for partnering with companies to create a thriving, positive workplace culture for everyone.
