- The Better Business Bureau (BBB) has received 220 complaints for false advertisement.
- A few months ago MyPillow paid out $1.1 million to California counties for saying that its pillows treat symptoms of fibromyalgia, restless leg syndrome, sleep apnea, cerebral palsy and acid reflux. They basically used anecdotal data to make these claims.
- Lindell is not a sleep expert.
- BBB just a few days ago revoked the accreditation for MyPillow and lowered their rating to F. Why? For years now they have advertised buy one and get one free. Apparently, you can't do this for a long period. Not exactly a condemning practice. Interesting that the day this action occurred, I received two MyPillows in the mail.
My recommendation? Look, I typically pay $300/night for a typical hotel room in major capitals of the world. Some of my lunches cost more than $130. Two MyPillows for $130 that will last the rest of my life are trivial expenses. If I later find out I hate them, I can always go to Walmart and buy two more that are washable for $40. I don't think my trusted old pillows are washable. Then, I can use these two MyPillows for guests who might stay the night. Then wash them.
