What exactly is the
8-Hour Sleep Challenge?
There is no denying it—losing sleep is detrimental to your health. That’s why we’re making sleep a priority, and hoping you’ll do the same, no matter what you sleep on.
- The Challenge
- We’re asking new customers to try our mattress for 800 hours—8 hours a night for 100 nights—and see if their day changes. If our mattress isn’t a fit, we’ll give you a full refund and donate the mattress to charity.
- The Book
- With every mattress order, we’ll be sending you a free copy of “Why We Sleep: Unlocking the Power of Sleep and Dreams” by Matthew Walker, PhD, to share the importance of a full night’s sleep.
- The Mint Bundle
- We know that better sleep goes beyond the mattress. To help our customers stay comfortable and get a full night's sleep, we’re offering free pillows with the purchase of every Mint Mattress.
- The Giveaway
- Once a week during the month of March, we’ll give away an entire T&N sleep experience: a Mint Mattress, pillow set, percale sheets and duvet, duvet insert, and mattress protector. Bonus: each winner gets to nominate a friend for the same prize. Find the details and enter on Facebook or Instagram.
“Why We Sleep: Unlocking the Power of Sleep and Dreams”
Society’s current thinking is that nutrition and exercise are mandatory for healthy living, but we’re missing a very important third pillar—sleep.
For Sleep Awareness Month, we chose to accompany every order of a mattress with a copy of “Why We Sleep” by Matthew Walker, PhD. As a sleep company, we’ve always known the importance of rest, but this book made us realize the urgent need to share the dangers of sleep deprivation. We know that 8 hours feels like a lofty goal, but we hope to encourage positive changes toward making sleep a true priority for people everywhere. See Details
Sleep enriches a diversity of functions, including our ability to learn, memorize, and make logical decisions and choices.
The foundation of a great night’s sleep is a truly comfortable mattress.
We’ve created two mattresses designed to help you fall asleep and stay asleep.

Office life a la @tuftandneedle. Thanks for my new desk...uh I mean #mintmattress ;) #ad #wakeupbetter
Home to these two goofs and oh how I’ve missed them! Isn’t that the funny thing about motherhood...can’t wait to get away and can’t wait to get back. Also, on the off chance I haven’t professed my love for @tuftandneedle enough...not only am I obsessed with their mattresses but this box that just provided endless entertainment while I tackled a mountain of laundry. it may just have to become a permanent fixture in his room!
moving into a new house was a lot of work, and i knew i wanted to replace most of the furniture in our house. this included our bed, and everything associated with it (linens, pillows, etc) one of my best friends had told me great things about her @tuftandneedle mattress and i knew i had to try it out. we opted for the mint mattress in the california king size (which sounds to be an uncommon pick?!)... #tuftandneedle #wakeupbetter
Looks like these two are enjoying our new @tuftandneedle mattress as much as we are
After being on the ‘go’ since December we’re finally settled back home. The best part about coming home is to sleep in your own bed, right!? We missed our mattress and pillows from @tuftandneedle so much. It’s so soft and comfy, we sleep like babies. #sponsored They now have a promotion where you get $150 off the Mint mattress plus you get a free pillow. Now that’s a dream deal! #wakeupbetter
Diari is super excited to be a big sister! (ad) She always wants to hug « her baby » and loves laying on my stomach to feel him/her make karate moves in there😩. Amidst all this excitement, adjusting to life changes can be tricky, especially at her age. We really try to provide as much positive attention as possible, just so she knows she’s valued and will always remain our first baby... #wakeupbetter #happychildhappylife
After holiday vibes.. need more coffee #ad My Mint mattress from @tuftandneedle makes it so difficult to get up in the mornings, So comfortable and cozy I just want to snuggle all day ☁️ Besides being insanely comfortable, they also offer free shipping + 100-night sleep trial + 10-year no hassle warranty and all of their returns are donated to local charities and non-profits across the country.
