Eight vs. Tuft and Needle: The Ultimate Mattress Battle

With so many mattresses out there, how do you know if Eight Smart Mattress is the one for you? Well, we've made it easy for you by giving you an in-depth and honest comparison so you can make a smart decision regarding your sleep! Today, we're comparing Eight with Tuft & Needle. 

Let's Compare


The Eight Smart Mattress is a one of a kind mattress that combines ultimate comfort with sleep technology. Eight’s four layers of premium high-density foam provide unparalleled support. The foam is specially designed to offer bounce and comfort while ensuring a cool temperature. What really sets Eight apart from its competitors is the technology. The mattress comes with a smart cover and sleep tracker that measures your sleep and gives you insight on your sleeping habits. By learning about your sleep patterns, you will improve your sleep and wake up feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day! In addition, Eight is the only mattress that has a bed warming feature, a smart alarm, and full smart home integration - all controlled and customized from the tip of your finger.

The Eight mattress falls at a 6 out of 10 on the firmness scale, which means it’s not too firm and not too soft. It offers dynamic support and contouring comfort without sacrificing breathability or resilience.

Tuft & Needle

Although Tuft & Needle is a lot cheaper than most mattresses, it only offers two layers of support and does not have any sleep technology. The top layer is a 3-inch layer of polyfoam and the bottom layer is a 7-inch base support foam. Using a polyfoam comfort layer instead of a more reactive material causes the mattress to lose bounce. Thinner foam layers decrease longevity as well. The Tuft & Needle mattress is very average compared to others, especially Eight. It lacks the smart technology and data-supported comfort that Eight has. In terms of refunds, Tuft & Needle works with you to donate the mattress to a local charity or non-profit.

Eight offers a 100-Night Trial Program

The 100-night trial program gives you up to 100 nights to sleep on the Eight Smart Mattress and if, for any reason, you are unhappy with the mattress, you can return it at no cost. Once you contact us, we will send one of our partner companies to remove the mattress for free. It's that simple! 

How does Eight compare to the rest? 

What do the experts say? 

They love it!

Sleepopolis recommends this mattress for sleepers who want to improve the quality of their sleep and achieve a great night's sleep. The unique four layers of foam create a well-balanced mattress that has just the right amount of sinkage and hug without ever feeling stuck.

Mattress Insider says "it's a good mattress for anyone looking for that nice medium feel, somebody that wants a little more bounce than what you'll find on a memory foam, it's easy to adjust positions, and it has very good motion transfer reduction, and slept cool as well."
