Frequently Asked Questions
Yes! All three of our Amerisleep pillows come with free shipping and a risk-free, 100-night sleep trial. It may take a few weeks to get used to your new pillow as your neck adjusts to a different type of support, so we recommend taking advantage of the entire sleep trial before making a decision. However, if you do decide your new Amerisleep pillow is not the right sleep solution, we’ll issue you a full refund.
We design all three of our pillows to offer healthy support to maintain spinal alignment and ease neck pains. Our pillows also feature cushioning memory foam to contour to your head and neck, relieving pressure and preventing morning headaches that can result from sleeping on a too-firm or too-soft pillow.
All three of our Amerisleep pillows work well for side sleepers.
Our Flex Pillow is suitable for all sleepers because it features adjustable shredded memory foam that can be shaped to meet any needs. If you’re looking for a customizable pillow option, we recommend the Flex.
The Comfort Classic Pillow is also a great choice for side sleepers because it has a 6-inch loft and pressure-relieving memory foam to fit snugly beneath your head. The thickness of this pillow is ideal for maintaining alignment while side sleeping, thus preventing neck pains and stiffness.
Our Dual Comfort Pillow can also work for side sleepers because it comes in two thickness options—one better for back sleepers and the other more comfortable for side sleepers. Like the Comfort Classic, our Dual Comfort Pillow contains a contouring memory foam core for pain relief. However, this pillow has both a soft side and a firm side for side sleepers who aren’t completely sold on a soft or firm pillow – offering two firmnesses in one.
It’s common practice for people to replace their pillows every 3 to 5 years for hygienic reasons. That said, we back all Amerisleep pillows with a 10-year warranty and design each to be easy to clean so you can extend their lifespan.
Regularly washing your pillow’s cover, vacuuming its surface, and deodorizing it with baking soda can go a long way in extending the life of your pillow. If you notice your pillow is stained or beginning to lose support, then it’s time for a replacement.
Most hotels typically use feather pillows, down pillows, or down alternative pillows because they’re moldable to fit different sleep needs and not super expensive to replace. That said, some upscale hotels are known to have more luxurious down pillows that can cost over $200 per pillow.
A good pillow shouldn’t cost you an arm and a leg, but you don’t want to go cheap with pillows, either. An unsupportive pillow can impede your sleep and lead to chronic neck pains, so the savings aren’t usually worth the discomfort. A high-quality, long-lasting pillow can cost around $100 and still be a good value, but anything beyond $200 or $250 is not worth the investment.
Stomach sleepers only need very thin pillows to maintain alignment and avoid neck pains. However, some stomach sleepers find it more comfortable to ditch their pillow and sleep with their head flat on their mattress. We don’t suggest going pillow-less unless you’re experiencing neck pain with thin pillows.
Your pillow should be thick enough to keep your neck in line with your shoulders and lower body. Something too thin and your neck will droop, and something too thick will crane your neck forward and cause stiffness and soreness. Stomach sleepers need a thin pillow (below 3 inches thick) while back and side sleepers usually prefer mid- to high-loft pillows (between 3 and 6 inches thick).
