One pillow can't be the end-all and be-all for everybody.
Arc4life has been in the pillow business since 2003 and in that time we've helped many customers and patients with choosing the right pillow for the condition that they have going on. That being said our Arc4life pillows and other pillows that we sell don't work for everybody.
In that time since 2002, many pillows have come and many have gone. But one stands out that was extra troublesome. MyPillow. The pillows that Claims to Cure a Lot of Random health problems.
In just the last few years, the Internet, blogs, late night tv, certain tv stations have been inundated with commercials from a pillow called my pillow. This Minnesota company claims that their pillow helps with such things as:
- restless leg syndrome
- insomnia migraine headaches
- sleep apnea
- cerebral palsy
- acid reflux
- other conditions
Just last week, 10 California California lawyers sued mypillow in Oakland California saying that the company was using deceptive and false advertising to make people buy their pillow. We can totally believe this. As a blogger and seller of pillows since 2003, even we got many phone calls and emails from customers stating that my pillow did not work from them and that they paid a lot of money for that pillow.
Mypillow story shows you what money can buy.... and it's not relief. Countless celebrities such as Neil Patrick Harris Sugar Ray Leonard, Frankie Muniz and even Donald Trump endorsed mypillow.
One of the most deceptive things that came out of this lawsuit is at my pillow promoted itself as the official pillow of the National Sleep Foundation. Come to find out they paid the National Sleep Foundation to get that endorsement. Actually, mypillow is still on their website as them being their official pillow.
Finally the creator of my pillow claimed to be a pillow expert however he has no health training to his background. In fact he called himself to sleep expert.
The mypillow company was hit with civil penalties in the amount of $1 million for false advertising.
We will keep updating this story as it develops.
Update January 4, 2017
The Better Business Bureau (BBB) just downgraded Mypillows rating from A+ to an F because of false marketing. The BBB claims that that the Buy one get on free promotion is deceptive and confusing to customers. The company violated advertising Code.
