Air Mattresses Buying Guide

Whether it’s your In-laws arriving unannounced for an overnight visit or you’re hosting your child’s friends for a slumber party, you’ll need a good air mattress (or two or three) to give guests a good night’s rest. Your reputation as a host is on the line!

Air mattresses are typically made of PVC (polyvinyl chloride) and can be blown up in a few minutes, either manually or by using a motorized air pump. In addition to serving as guest beds, they’re also great for camping. They can cost anywhere from $10 to several hundred dollars. Over the years, they’ve gotten a little more fancy than just a single slab of air-filled plastic. Some have features such as built-in pillow tops and ribbed sides that make it easier to pull a fitted sheet over the side and have it stay in place.
