There are several things you can do to make sure the mattress you're buying is not reconditioned. First, shop from well-known, established businesses. Federal law requires all reconditioned mattresses to be labled with a yellow tag. When in the store, ask for a new mattress, not a renovated, reconditioned, or refurbished one. If the mattress is shipped to your home, check the mattress tag with the invoice, to make sure it's the same one you saw in the store.
