Protect-A-Bed's Promise

If you have ever taken a Psychology or Marketing/Communications course, you probably know that commercials and advertisements are never selling a product. They are selling something intangible: love, friendship, romance, safety, etc. 

After all, if a company can get you to believe that their product will truly bring you satisfaction or spontaneity or sexiness, then you will be more likely to buy it. Deceiving? Perhaps. But it works like a charm.

Unfortunately, most products can't live up to those sky-high expectations...which is why so many people end up with "buyer's remorse." You buy the product and realize that those shoes really didn't turn you into a fashionista with a charming personality or that cleaning spray really didn't transform your home into the spic-n-span haven you had imagined.

protect-a-bed-logoProtect-A-Bed, however, is one company that really gives you what it promises. They're selling "peace-of-mind" and "better sleep"...and I can say that the mattress protectors really have provided our family with both. These waterproof protectors are non-"crinkly," super soft, AND machine-washable. 

protect-a-bed premium mattress protectorSo, if your baby throws up or your toddler has an accident or if you're pregnant and your water breaks while you sleep, you don't have to worry your pretty-little-head about that pricey mattress you're sleeping on. Thanks to P-A-B, you can just strip the sheets and put new ones on - without having to try to soak up the "yuck" as quick as can be (and - really - does scrubbing the spot with a towel truly work to eliminate odors and such? I think not...).  

I have written about Protect-A-Bed in the past (you can click on the following links to read about why I think the pads are especially great for co-sleepers and potty training tots) because it's a product that I truly believe in. 

Retailing between $59.99 and $149.99 depending on the size and style you select, P-A-B mattress protectors are sold online and at a variety of mattress retailers.

  1. ugh great idel I have no protection on my bed or it would be nice for when the little one gets older to move to a crib =]

  2. We had one for my son due to allergies but Thanks to some friends moving, we are waiting for a new bedroom set for him. He will be moving up into a queen bed. So it would great to get a new queen size one for him.

  3. These products are great. I've checked out their website and think they would do wonders for my allergies. Or at least help me sleep much better.

    Thank you.

  4. My 7 year old daughter suffers from asthma and allergies and I would love the mattress protector for her full size bed.

  5. These mattress covers sound like a terrific idea! Allergies are a big problem in our household. Just the thought of dust mites is making me squirm at my desk! This is one necessary item which seems to go on the bottom of the list of things to purchase. I always think, one of these days I’ll go out and find something to protect our mattresses, and then I never do. It would be wonderful to win these, and then spread the word on how they work.
    Thanks so much for a great giveaway!

  6. I would love to try the mattress protector, since my allergies are really bad this winter. Thanks for having the contest!

  7. We really need mattress protectors in our home. I would love to get pillowcase covers too, someday. UGH. ONE DAY. HAHA.

    Thanks for the chance!

  8. The allergy version be great. We're allergic to so many things and mattresses are the perfect breading ground for germs and allergens. Like most people we can't afford to replace our mattress as often as we like but it would be great to have one of these covers to seal everything away!

  9. My husband has really bad allergies. We've used some pillow protectors before, but the mattress covers are so expensive. We're talking about getting a new mattress in the near future, so it'd be great to start out fresh with protection!

  10. It is horrifying to think of all the skin flakes and dust mite detritus that accumulate in an unprotected mattress. I shudder at the thought.

  11. I like the fact that the premium cover regulates your body temperature. I am always too hot or too cold, and would love a product that could help that be regulated so I could get a better night's sleep.

  12. I learned my lesson a few years ago when my grandson stayed overnight with me. I thought everything would be ok but I guess the stress of not being at home got to him and we had an accident that left a rather large stain on the mattress. Now I keep protectors on all the mattresses although they are cheapo ones not nice like this one.

  13. I could really use this protector my LO's crib when she's born. I want to keep her healthy and safe at all times, but what mom doesn't?

  14. My daughter has one on her bed and she swears it's the best thing she's bought. I should probably get one myself, since my daughter tells me mattress covers add a bit of comfort to your sleeping as well. Thanks.

  15. I would love to win one of these products to protect my family's beds from all the things that can invade it. Protecting my family's health is very important.

  16. I sooo wish I had known about PAB when we had my son. Our very expensive mattress was ruined during breasfeeding. We are planning to upgrade to a king and I'm definitely "protecting" it! We have a PAB cover for my son's crib mattress because it's organic cotton and there is no way I want that getting ruined! : ) And a huge thank you! (you know why!) : )

  17. Need new mattress. Since I can't get one right now, the least I can do is protect it. My Chubby-huggy takes her afternoon nap everyday on "Mama's bed" and the last two days in a row, her diapie-doo leaked. :(

  18. We have 2 allergy suffers of the worst sorts in our household, this would be a GREAT help I'm sure. skyxsky27(at)

  19. This would be an awesome item to have. I can't count the number of times my son has had an accident after crawling into mommy and daddy's bed in the middle of the night! The wee hour changing of bed linens isn't fun. I'd love a way to ensure my mattress stays clean and dry!

  20. This is a really great prize. I would love to win this because my son is in the process of potty training and we are getting a new bed for him soon. My husband and I were just talking about having to get a mattress protector for it. I'm so glad you posted this giveaway. This sounds like a great product.

  21. We just got a double-sized mattress so our two toddler girls can share a bed. One is still in diapers. The other one is just now potty trained... but not at night! This would be perfect.

  22. My significant other has been dying to have a mattress topper. He has a sensitive back and our mattress is killing him :(

  23. Darn - the person right above me wants the exact same thing. I'm not copying. I also would need a mattress protector in queen size, allerzip.

  24. Thanks for another awesome giveaway! I would love to win the AllerZip Mattress Protector in a queen size! Thanks again ;)

  25. With my allergies I really could use the AllerZip mattress protector. They seem to be getting worse every year. thanks!

    braaisjo at gmail dot com

  26. Oh, I'd love these for everyone in our house. Being pregnant, a new one coming, and other kids makes these look really appealing.

  27. This would be perfect for my daughter. I have kept the poor girl in a toddler bed because she has accidents. But she is turning seven soon so I am getting her a twin bed....ready or not, this would be awesome to protect the mattress. Thank you!

  28. I could really use this. I have horrible allergies. I think my husband may be developing them as well judging by the way he snores lately :)

  29. I really like this company for bed protection. My middle daughter has extreme dust mite allergies and her bed is covered, but we have to cover ALL the beds just in case. Apparently, the covers are meant to be replaced yearly.

  30. I'd love this. My kids still sleep with me most nights, or at least the youngest, and of course it never fails that he'll have an accident or get sick the day I clean all the bedding ;) I'd love this for those times!!

  31. I'd love to have a zippered protector for a twin mattress! It's pretty hard to get the dust accumulation of years out of a mattress--so I'd like to start by just sealing it up.

  32. I just got new pillows & have been thinking about getting pillow protectors. I want to protect my comfy new pillows.

  33. I have a hard time deciding if I'd rather have one for our bed or our son's... but I think I'd pick his since he's sleeping on a hand me down crib mattress... ew!

  34. My husband is really sick because of his allergies. He carries his bag of pills with him everywhere and we do all we can to protect him from allergens. This mattress protector would be great for him.

  35. I can't tell you how many times I have woken up with our 6 month next to me and a wet spot on our bed. This would be great! Thanks! thebubbledies(at)gmail(dot)com

  36. I was just wondering what I should do to protect the mattress just in case my water breaks while I'm in bed...this would be so great! It would also be nice once the baby is here and possibly sharing the bed. Thank you!

  37. We don't have a mattress protector, but I'm super-allergic to feathers & dust. I've always wanted one- & I hope it'll work for my baby (I'm pregnant)!

  38. I would love to have an Allergy Control for the bed. We all suffer from the dust and my son has asthma attacks triggered by allergies. Thanks for a great giveaway!

  39. I have been looking for a great mattress protector that stays on! This would fit the bill! m04taes(at)verizon(dot)net

  40. I could really use this. My son is a bedwetter and we're pretty sick of the crunchy plastic mattress cover he has now. He'd feel so much more confident about having a cover that doesn't feel like a garbage bag! Thanks for the great contest!

  41. I have terrible allergies and if this helps, I will talk it up like there is no tommorow!

    madamerkf at aol dot com

  42. My son is 5 and still wets the bed so I have to put pullups on him everynight, though he still "goes" through onto his sheets a lot. This would help out sooo much to protect the mattresses

  43. I need Queen Premium Mattress Protector to protect my mattress! I love that it's waterproof yet breathable and it's machine washable :)

    Thanks :)

  44. I just found out I have Asthma and this would be nice. I would love the Premium Mattress Protector. Thanks so much!

  45. I would love a chance to win the AllerZip Mattress Protector. Often I wake up a little sniffly and stuffy, and I bet this would help.

  46. I would love one of these. I love co sleeping, but it can sometimes be messy. My dd had the flu a couple of weeks ago. This would be very helpful at times like that and will also come in handy during potty training time. Which is coming up soon!

  47. potty training here soon, and this would be a wonderful addition to her new big girl bed!! Thanks !!

    (i have to tell you I did purchase that boon potty seat too! Thank you for your reviews and tips!!)

  48. would love to win this for my grandkids...they are being toliet trained at night..and would need this.,.thanks for the great giveaway

  49. this is great. we have an old cat that has gotten sick on our bed and this would be great to protect our mattress. thanks!

  50. Both my son and husband suffer from allergies and have an allergen fighting bed cover would be incredible. With all that we read about how important a good sleep is to your well being, this type of item sounds like a must have.

  51. The bed protector on our guest bed is about worn out and slides all around. It's way too thin. I would love to win one to make our guest bed even more comfortable than it is now.

  52. Funny you should mention the "water breaking in your sleep" topic. Yeahhhh. Every time we flip the mattress I get chills up and down my spine from "that spot" that would never come clean. Blech. Also, hubby suffers from allergies and I do believe this would help.

  53. Right before New Years, my son got a stomach bug and puked all over our bed. We soaked it up with a towel and sprayed it with lysol, but I never felt completely comfortable with that. If I don't win one of these covers, I may buy one.

  54. We really need a mattress protector on my three year old's bed. He is trained during the day, but still has frequent accidents at night and the rubber sheet I bought isn't doing the greatest job of protecting the mattress. I scrub at least twice a week to keep away stains.

  55. I have seen these advertised everywhere and want one so bad! My son has accidents quite often in our bed...and I spill my drinks on it all the time!

    autumn398 (at)

  56. I could definately use this! Potty training coming sooner than I want, with my son, and my daughter has accidents semi-often! Thanks for the chance!

  57. wow, we really could use this ! One of our 2 year old twins always manages to crawl into our bed when we sleep and sometimes have accidents!


  58. Protect a Bad sounds really cool. God knows how much work it takes to clean out the sheets and mattress if a stain gets through.

  59. I could really use this for my bed. With 2 of my grandchildren living here now they are always wanting to climb in my bed to watch tv with me and my granddaughter has allergies. Thank you!

  60. We don't have any mattress protector at the moment. With the moldy air in Florida this would be very useful. Thanks

  61. I just learned that the reason I had been feeling awful is ...I have an autoimmune disease. sigh. I now need to be safer and allergen free to be healthy. Thank you for that chance.

  62. I entered your previous giveaway for this and was sad that I didn't win, so I'll give it another go! Our daughter (just turned 3) has allergy/asthma issues and, because she has a feeding tube over night, we frequently have a disconnected tube or vomiting that make quite a mess. A mattress protector is EXACTLY what we need as we move her into her "big girl bed." Thanks for the chance to enter!

  63. These mattress protectors really seem top notch! Our current cover has so many holes I don't even know why I bother putting it on the bed!LOL!

  64. I always wonder how well it fits on our ginormous mattress. We have one of those over the top, super soft, pillowtop mattress...which I love, but it's hard to find bedding for it. Let alone the mattress pads.

  65. This would be a great thing to have because I am a dust phobia and would love to protect the mattress from accidents too.
    (eating in bed)

  66. My allergies have really gotten worse in the past couple of years, and so we're trying to switch over to allergen-preventive products at home. I have a pillow, and we switched our top bedding, but we don't have a mattress pad yet -- this would be fantastic!

    Thanks for the chance,
    musesofmegret (at) gmail (dot) com

  67. I really need one- well a few. I have 3 children, a husband, a dog, a ferret- you know where I'm coming from. I need a good one that won't shrink up in the wash. My daughter and husband have bad allergies too...Thanks for this great giveaway!

  68. This sounds exactly what I need. I have terrible allergies to dust and they get a lot worse in the winter time. These items sound perfect! Thank you for the giveaway!

    kport207 at gmail dot com

  69. I'm potty training my son right now but I have him wearing a diaper at night becuase I don't want to clean up a yucky bed in the morning. This sounds like something I need.

  70. This is such a great giveaway. We spend so much money on a nice mattress that this is a neccessity to protect our investment. Anything nowdays to help make things last longer is great.

  71. I love the zip up mattress covers. Everytime they show what dust mites look like in our mattresses and pillows I get the willies.

  72. I had bought some cheaper ones a year or so back and they are not holding up well. Would love a new one, especially of this quality!!

  73. A mattress pad is a necessity at my house. Between the two cats, and the SO who has a bad habit of eating, drinking, and SPILLING in bed, we'd be replacing our mattress every two months otherwise.

  74. We could really use a mattress protector for our bed but our son could for his also so we would have to decide who would get it. Thank you so much for the great giveaway!!

  75. what a great idea!! Especially since we’re expecting our first in 7 weeks!!! Would love to win something so practical. 92-40 241st Street, Bellerose, NY 11426

  76. what a great idea!! Especially since we're expecting our first in 7 weeks!!! Would love to win something so practical. 92-40 241st Street, Bellerose, NY 11426. Whichever you can send us would be helpful.

  77. I suffer from allergies year round. If it is not trees, it is grasses, or ragweed, or molds or dust, etc. It would be nice to get some of these covers that sound so great. Thanks for the giveaway.

  78. These sound like fabulous covers. I used to use a mattress cover that was so annoying because it
    felt like you were sleeping on a plastic tablecloth, it was so loud and crunchy. Aside from the mattress protection and anti-allergy features, it sounds like these are "quiet". It would be great to have one!

    Thanks for the nice giveaway!

  79. I'm starting to think a matress protector is critical with DH's and my allergies. We're starting to look worse when we get up than we did when we went to sleep.

  80. At 7 months pregnant we'll soon have a little one sharing our bed with us once again so this would come in handy! In fact I was just washing the bedsheets today and thinking, "I need to look into a new mattress cover."

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  81. I'm going to win this one of these times! My water could break at any minute now, I'll soon have a spitting up new baby in bed with me, and my preschooler takes naps on my bed...all really great reasons to have a good mattress protector!

  82. I'd love to have an extra mattress protector. With a little one, they ALWAYS come in handy. I can't tell you how many times they've saved my mattress, and mine aren't even as swanky and nice as the one your giving away.

  83. I would *so* love one of these. Except I think if I won, I'd somehow try to buy a new mattress set first, before using it. Because, uh.... ours has been through three co-sleeping kids. Without a protector. ..... yeeeeah.

  84. My husband keeps telling me we need to get a mattress protector on our bed considering how many nights our daughter manages to crawl into our bed!

  85. We don't have any kind of mattress protectors on our beds other than the regular mattress pad thingy. When Cheeks makes the switch from crib to bed, however, I'd love to have a mattress cover for her bed. New situation, upcoming potty training, and the like make it a great idea. Free is even better. :) Thanks!
