Most people don’t care about US lawsuits. I sleep much better on memory foam than springs. €300 memory foam from topsleep.co.uk still going strong but we need a bigger bed thanks to a non cot-loving toddler. Very hard to buy such a mattress in Ireland, particularly in larger sizes.

so do I. And to get some luxurious springs, its huge money whereas for €500 you can get a top class memory foam mattress.

It is believed in the industry and from records in Companies House that many of various roll up / vacuum packed mattress companies are actually owed by the same people but trade with different names to confuse the public. They will spend a lot of money on advertising to suck people in. They allow for the returns in their costings. Would I pay £700 for any of these mattresses ? Definitely not. After all you are only buying a piece of foam. We also have been selling Signature Sleep Vacuum Packed Pocket Sprung mattresses for €249 for the last while but are nearly gone now.


Now have a look at the link below and it may change your mind on the vacuum mattress industry.

It’s pretty pathetic that you have to come on here to slate a competitor. Esca sell directly, so I can understand why you have the hump about them, no money for you.

How many times have you posted that link at this stage? Must be at least 4 times.

Excuse me, where did I mention Esca ?

That link is about mattress reviews and if you can believe the reviews or not as it appears that the review company is actually financed by the manufacturer of the mattress concerned. Nowhere do I mention or slate Esca . By the way I would not consider Esca or any of these companies competition for us as we can sell similar products to theirs for 1/3 of their price so not much competition there I would think.

In fairness, the title of the thread is about Easca Mattresses. It's safe to presume a link discussing memory foam mattresses in a thread about memory foam mattresses is aimed at the company mentioned in the title.

You’re posting in an Easca thread. You’re commenting about companies that sell Easca type mattress’s. You’ve let your company down.

Regarding price, anyone can sell cheap, especially unknown brands that nobody has ever heard of.

I see your point but that was not the intention at all. Other guys on here mentioned us on this thread and we were only responding. I can't comment on Easca as I have very little knowledge of that company but as regards some of the other vacuum packed companies that were mentioned, I can comment that when I go to UK on buying trips I see lots of these other vacuum packed mattresses that were returned under the 100 nights trial. I am reliably informed that the model of these companies are, very intense advertising campaigns (which the buyers are paying for ) and that they are budgeting for a certain amount of returns and they don't mind this as the price is inflated from the start so they don't care about some returns.

I honestly wish Easca the best of luck in their business venture. They are not major competition for us.

Let's not lose the plot here now completely Fr. Dougal.

It's a thread about mattress's and the chap is an expert in the field.

I was told by a senior poster on here that he was very helpful and sold quality products at very reasonable prices to a lot of posters on here over the years, when I contacted him that's exactly what I found.

Who are you to tell him what threads he can and cannot post in? He's a member here the same as the rest of us with the big difference being he doesn't post anonymously and has a great business reputation.

"You've let your company down", what kind of a statement is that?

He’s not a member here like the rest of us, his opinions are biased as he wants to sell his products. He has an advertisers account here.

There was no need to run down these type mattresses, people have bought them and are quite happy with them. They sell direct and not via resellers such as bigmickey.

I'd say now Father that you could do with a nice cup of tea.

Go on, go on.

He didn't slate Easca and the reply was to someone who mentioned big Mickey.ie in their post so I'm not understanding where your coming from.
For the record I've not bought anything from bigmickey.ie but the missus has and she was very impressed with them.

Haha.. I was in a similar situation to you a few years ago... posted a recommendation about a mattress I bought from a different company and was immediately trolled.

Sure there's only one name in mattresses on boards dontcha know?

What gets me is that direct selling via Bargain Alerts is in direct contravention of the charter

Not my forum so I don't really care tbh, but I certainly didn't like someone hijacking my original thread all those years ago.

Take €100 Off | Use Code: SLEEPTIGHT

https://www.eascamattress.ie

After reading this thread, I will contact Big Mick for a new super king memory foam gel cooled mattress for 1/3 of the price. So about 250 euro then.

Just checked the Big Mick website, what I looked for cost between 700 and 1000 for a super king size and dont even have cooling down or turn mattress. Might as well buy from Easca and get a 10 year warranty and 100 day try out.
