Miracle Bamboo Pillow is a pillow that the company claims is softer than cotton, anti-microbial, hypoallergenic, and temperature regulating so you’ll keep cool all night long. They gush that Miracle Bamboo Pillow will not only let you sleep better, but you’ll also feel better and live better if this is on your bed.
But is Miracle Bamboo Pillow a product that’s really as life changing as they say or is it just a bunch of fluff? Let’s investigate their claims a little more closely.
The Miracle Bamboo Pillow Pitch
Miracle Bamboo Pillow is targeted at adults who have trouble sleeping and perhaps have allergies as well. The informercial shows attractive models sleeping peacefully on this pillow and promise you will do the same. They try to sell you on the fact that bamboo fabrics are anti-microbial and hypoallergenic and tempt you with a 2-for-1 offer.
How Miracle Bamboo Pillow Works
Miracle Bamboo Pillow comes in 2 sizes: Queen (20 x 30) or King (20 x 36) but the pillow’s thickness was not available. They claim its exterior is made from natural bamboo fibers but offer no other fabric information. The interior is filled with shredded memory foam, which they promise is better than solid foam and will contour to your shape and never get hard or retain heat.
They boast Miracle Bamboo Pillow is 3 pillows in 1 – use it on its side for a softer feel, flat for medium firmness, and folded in half as a booster when reading or watching TV. They add Miracle Bamboo Pillow is machine washable and incredibly huggable to boot.
They list the natural benefits of bamboo as:
- Resistant to dust mites
- Breathable fabric
- Moisture wicking
- Temperature regulating
Miracle Bamboo Pillow Costs… WHAT?
$84.90 for 2 pillows. This is sold as $69.95 plus $14.95 S&H for the first pillow and the second one is free. There is a 30-day money-back guarantee, minus S&H and what it costs to ship it back. Miracle Bamboo Pillow comes with a 30-day replacement warranty, also minus return shipping.
Bottom Line: Is Miracle Bamboo Pillow a Scam?
Miracle Bamboo Pillow may be something you can sleep on, but we think you should know:
- This is an “As Seen On TV” version of an already popular product. ASOTV products are usually less expensive, but often cheaply made and consumers tend to be disappointed with them upon receipt.
- There is no indication as to how much bamboo fiber is actually used (customer service was unable to elaborate).
- According to several sources (here and here for example) bamboo fabric is essentially rayon, and most of it goes through harsh chemical treatments during production.
- Other bamboo pillows on the market we’ve seen have a lifetime guarantee; however, Miracle Bamboo Pillow only has 30 days.
- Many people do enjoy bamboo pillows and say they are incredibly comfortable and durable. However, there are no reliable consumer reviews about this specific brand.
- Some find bamboo fiber too stiff or the pillows too heavy.
- Miracle Bamboo Pillow is sold by Ontel Products, who currently have a C rating from the BBB (as of Oct. 2014) for 284 complaints, primarily about product problems.
We suggest if you are interested in bamboo pillows to shop and compare brands. Look for one that has a lot of positive reviews as well as a lifetime warranty before plopping your money (and your head) down on one.
