    I bought one... Love it! I am picky about pillows, it does as advertised, IMO.

    My wife has one, she loves it. The ads are annoying, though.

    I switched to NPR a while back. The thing with NPR is - I know exactly what I'm getting, and that's ok with me... actually, that's all I ask.

    As far as My Pillow goes... I would love to try one. I need to buy one actually.

    Maybe they will show up in the "As seen on TV" isle at the local farm store and I can try one out :cool:

    I've had one for a few years and it's great. Worth every penny.

    I think they are nationwide. I thought I heard that years ago he was crackhead and obviously turned his life around. The commercials are here in DC. Can't say the commercials bother me as much as the Comcast/Verizon ones.

    Every minute of every day on every freakin' channel and radio station in the NYC area and every cable channel to boot! GRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!

    I love the story I heard about the manner in which these were "invented"...

    It seems that the guy who runs the company (mustache boy with the very visible cross around his neck) started out as a foam rubber products manufacturer. One day, he was looking out his corner window at the dumpsters below and he noticed all the wasted foam bits that were left over, when making some of the company's products.

    The, a light bulb went off!!!

    What if he took all of those randomly-shaped and sized foam bits, stuck them in a pillowcase, and promoted it as a bold new innovation in pillow technology? What a great idea, he thought -- It might just work!!!

    So, that's exactly what the did: He took what had been garbage for all the years he had owned the foam rubber manufacturing company and turned that trash into the biggest cash cow he could ever have imagined!

    https://www.consumerreports.org/mattresses/should-my-pillow-become-your-pillow/

    "Consumer Reports bought three My Pillows to test. Although we weren’t able to test that REM sleep claim, we did examine them inside and out. My Pillow describes itself as having '3-piece interlocking fill,' but it actually has thousands of torn polyurethane foam pieces in three sizes."

    Then, the lawyers got involved...

    https://www.consumerreports.org/my-pillow/my-pillow-health-claims-lawsuit-settlement/

    "Mike Lindell, CEO of My Pillow, once said that “people are tired of phony advertising.” But the company found itself being accused of misleading advertising in a civil lawsuit brought earlier this year by several California consumer-protection groups. My Pillow agreed to settle the case this week and pay almost $1 million in civil penalties."

    Snake oil indeed. My uncle and his wife bought them and returned them within a week. Don't waste your time or money. Pillow-boy's trash is still trash, no matter how nice the pillowcase he dresses it up in!

    We bought two, and like them a lot. About the same money as good pillows at the department store. Would buy them again. They are just pillows...

    Have you seen the goldilocks mattress commercial? It's pretty funny.
    I've seen that one one YouTube a few times. After a few seconds you can skip it.
    I wish regular tv and radio had that option. I'd actually watch it once in a while.

    Ohio dubiously checking in.

    I was first aware of the infomercial claiming "the only pillow endorsed by the National Sleep Foundation". Searched for that foundation, and the only hits I got were pointing out that it had been created by this My Pillow huckster.

    I noticed pretty quickly those claims disappeared.

    And my local Wal*Mart sells them in the as seen on TV section.

    Thinking of putting "three piece interlocking foam" inside the battery compartments of all my pedals. Toan foam for haunting mids!

    Man, that's a lotta hate'n !!! Hate the ad... hate the product (even if ya never tried it...)
    Geez.
    Don't hate the man for tryin' to make a buck on a product made in America!
    I've seen ........... LOTSA more annoying -and more dangerous- ads.
    Like howz about all those pharmaceuticals being pushed at us?Talk about a profit margin, and something that may not work as you wished! The side affects from My Pillows are.... fewer and more easily corrected.
    And if you find a pillow ad tough to take, how 'bout all the bowel control products..... and underwear for folks whose bowels have failed, and .....catheters! A good night's rest on a pleasant pillow may be "snake oil" to some.... but it's a lot more appealing hospice level cancer drugs....!

    OK. Preachin' aside. My Pillow. I've got one. Only been using it for like 8 months or so, and I'm not dead yet. Maybe not life-changing great, but, honestly, I can't say I've used a better pillow.
    I've tried a lotta different pillows. Tried something called a "Bamboo" pillow, which was a big slab of memory foam or something... musta weighed 10 pounds. It wasn't better than My Pillow. If you don't like My Pillow, I think you can return it. (Instead of cryin' about it!)
    A friend of mine who's got a tendency to do a lot of product testing got one and swore by it. And he's one of those sleep apnea types. Thought I'd give it a try.
    I got mine at BB&B where they only had like one size and a couple firmness levels.... but, hey - isn't it nice there's a couple levels of firmness to choose from? And that it does breath? and that it's subtly shape-able? And washable? Lightweight? Available on-line AND in some stores?

    What's worse than whining about "tone"?
    Whining about My Pillow!
