    IKEA Foam Mattress - no receipt

    IKEA Foam Mattress - no receipt 1st Oct 17 at 10:26 AM
    Hi,

    I've just bought a Morgedal foam mattress. I went for the medium-firm and it's pretty soft, to be honest.

    Can I take it back without a receipt?

    Has anyone got one of these and was the firm one a lot better?

    Thanks!

    Why no receipt and do Ikea take back used mattresses, or is it still sealed in the wrapper?

    Yes, Ikea allow you to return a used mattress for an exchange within 90 days from purchase provided that it's not damaged or marked.
    However, they do state that a receipt is required.

    Hmm, wonder what they do with 'em after being used for 3 months . . .

    Edit: thought about it, sell to hotels or something, maybe.

    Did you pay by credit card? Many good retailers / shops e.g. John Lewis will accept your statement in lieu of a receipt.

    Thanks all. Yes, I've got a bank statement and it was the only thing I bought so I'll used that.

    Did you swipe a family card? I often receive follow up emails asking me to complete a survey about what I bought, so they may have access to records showing what you bought too.

    I don't have one of those cards. I don't normally bother with Ikea to be honest.
