Utilize the space beneath

The manufacturers have thoughtfully allowed sufficient space to remain beneath the bed after it has been set up for use. You can choose to leave this space vacant or use it in many ways. For example, the space beneath the bed frame can be used to store bags, cartons, and other stuff you want properly kept out of sight until they are needed. We commend the designers for this creative feature which will help people who do not have so much space in their homes for a bed frame of this size and other furniture they might need.

The bed frame is easy to set up. We noticed that many buyers will not have any problems setting up this single bed frame for use because of its simple yet attractive design which makes assembly easy.

To give a rough time estimate, you may need only about an hour to set up the bed frame, and if you work fast, the time to get it done will be considerably lesser than an hour.

We also noticed that it is possible to alter the appearance of the single bed frame. For those people who think the color of pine wood does not match the color theme they have chosen for their bedroom, the NEIDEN bed frame can be customized to meet their needs. The options for personalizing this single bed frame include staining it with your preferred color, waxing the bed frame or painting it to match the color theme you prefer to have in your bedroom.

Parents can get this single bed frame for their children’s rooms. In the simplest terms, we can describe the design as suitable for both male and female. So your children will enjoy using this product, however, if there is a need for the frame to be customized, you can make things more interesting by painting the frame or using bed sheets that your children will like.

The bed frame has an angled headboard. This feature particularly stood out because of the different ways it can be used for convenience. For example, people who enjoy using their laptops in bed or watching the TV will find the headboard particularly very convenient. The design has also been done in a way that the headboard is firm and fortified so you do not need to be too bothered about your weight. Alternatively, the bed frame can be placed by a wall.

We also observed the options owners of this bed frame could use to keep it clean and well maintained at all times.

To prevent accumulation of dust or dirt on the bed frame, you can keep it clean by frequently wiping the bed frame with a moist cloth. This cleaning action will improve the appearance of the pine wood and as the owner; you can get more satisfaction and fulfillment.

In the case of stains, you can also wipe them off quickly. A dry cloth can be used for this cleaning action. Wiping the stains off the bed frame will surely remove all traces of the spill; however, if necessary you should use a moist cloth. Stains can also be removed from the surface of the bed frame with an eraser. This is a simple cleaning action, and it leaves no marks.

Over time, the bed frame can be waxed again or re-painted if you feel the paint job has lost its glow. It is also important to avoid scratches on the bed frame because they deface the smooth surface of the pine wood.

The NEIDEN bed frame is solid; a center support beam has been included in the design to make the bed frame firm. It also has a slatted base. From us, this is a good buy, and it is durable.

Besides coil springs and poly foam, the Haugesund mattress consists of combinations of polyester and cotton. Most of the wadding is made of viscose fiber and polyester while the lining is done with non woven polypropylene.

The stretch fabric on top of the mattress is one of the important materials because it moves along with your body and carries the comfortable feeling wherever you move. IKEA recommends several coordinating products to match with the Haugesund mattress for best performance, which will be discussed below.

How it feels

IKEA offers you to choose whether you prefer a firm or medium firm mattress since the Haugesund spring mattress comes in both versions. While medium firm is significantly softer than the firm one, some customers still state it is too firm for their liking. However, that is a matter of personal preference and thus testing the mattress out before making a purchase is necessary.

The mattress, however, comes in dark beige color which makes it stand out above other, averagely gray mattresses. Besides the appearance, the Haugesund spring mattress offers exception comfort with just the right amount of softness to it. However, this mattress is not designed for heavier users due to its inability to endure a long period of time under heavy weight. Therefore, the Haugesung mattress is ideal for kids, teens or any light weight user.

Off-gassing will happen throughout the first few weeks after unpacking the mattress, which is usual for these products. Airing it out for a couple of hours every day will help solve this issue quicker. A great feature that comes with this mattress is the fact that the response coils are wrapped individually, which allows them to move separately and insulate movement, making it suitable for couples who sleep on the same bed.

The Haugesund spring mattress is designed to be used on one side only and turning it over is not recommended. According to customers’ reviews, the feeling this mattress provides is perfect for stomach sleepers. However, there have been plenty of complaints that the mattress couldn’t hold up heavy weights, which is why you should consider who would use the mattress prior to making a purchase.

As mentioned above, IKEA recommends a few products that work perfectly when combined with the Haugesund spring mattress. Purchasing those additional items might raise the budget a bit but it is well worth it, considering the quality that comes with them.

The products include the Espevar slatted mattress base, the Luroy slatted bed base, the Tannanger mattress topper and the Tussoy mattress topper. The mattress and bed bases are a good foundation while the mattress toppers add comfort and minimize firmness, depending on your liking.

Pricing, shipping and other details

This mattress comes roll packed for convenient shipping. It will, however, take about an hour for it to return to its normal shape after unpacking. Since the mattress has such a compact packaging, it can easily be transported in a car. Therefore, you can save up a portion of your budget that would otherwise be spent on shipping. You will also save time since you wouldn’t have to wait for IKEA’s shipping service to deliver the product.

For the quality it offers, the Haugesund mattress is quite affordable, compared to other spring mattresses on the market. The prices of coordinating products that should go with this mattress also depend on the size you choose. All together, this combination is still an affordable option when compared to what can be seen on the market.

The mattress comes with a 25 year limited warranty, which is typical for IKEA’s products. The warranty covers all manufacturing defaults. The company will not take responsibility if the mattress has torn due to being used a longer period of time or due to any customer’s fault.

Besides the warranty, IKEA also holds a one year exchange policy, according to which you are allowed to exchange the mattress you purchased for another mattress form IKEA that you find more suitable. Refunds are not allowed and to be able to  exchange the mattress, it has to be clean and undamaged.

IKEA Haugsvar Spring Mattress Review

IKEA Haugsvar Spring Mattress Review

IKEA Haugsvar Spring Mattress

Similar to the Haugesund spring mattress is the Haugsvar mattress in the IKEA’s mattress line. Whilst both of the mattresses offer great value for their price, the Haugsvar mattress is rated better on IKEA’s online store. They differ in a few crucial aspects while most of other details are quite similar or even the same.

If you’re looking for a good yet affordable spring mattress, taking both into consideration would be the best strategy. Here, we will break down all important details as well as customers’ opinions regarding the Haugsvar spring mattress.

IKEA Haugsvar Spring Mattress Review

IKEA Haugsvar Spring Mattress
IKEA Haugsvar Spring Mattress
IKEA Haugsvar Spring Mattress

Structure

One of the most important differences between the Haugesund and the Haugsvar mattress is in the structure. While the Haugesund consists of the spring layer and one poly foam comfort layer, the Haugsvar mattress is more complexly structured. It consists of the springs layer, made of high quality steel, and two additional layers.

 The first one is a high-resilience layer of cold foam of 1.8 PCF. The second layer is the comfort layer of polyurethane foam which is 1.7 PCF. Such structure significantly increases the quality and the comfort of the mattress, which is important to take into consideration when making a purchase.

Size

The Haugsvar mattress comes in four sizes; twin, full, king and queen size. The thickness of the mattress is another difference between the Haugsvar and Haugesund IKEA model. The Haugsvar spring mattress is 28 cm thick, thanks to two additional layers it possesses.

Therefore, he beats the Haugesund for 3 cm and just that much comfort. The number of pocket springs, however, is same in both mattresses which is 594 springs (queen size). The number of springs depends on the size of the mattress.

Materials

Besides the high quality steel used in the springs layer, the mattress contains polyurethane and cold foam. The cover and the stretch material are combinations of cotton and polyester. The wadding consists of viscose and polyester while the lining is done with non-woven polypropylene.

The stretch material on the surface of the mattress gives more comfort because it moves along with the springs and follows the movement of your body. Cold foam is also a good material for mattresses because it regulates temperature while you’re sleeping, providing a comfortable surface that doesn’t get too hot nor too cold.

How it feels

According to customers’ reviews on the IKEA store, the Haugsvar mattress is a complete winner with high rating. It comes in dark grey, which is the usual color of a mattress, and it is available in both firm and medium firm versions. The top cold foam layer is highly resilient, releasing pressure in your shoulders and hips. It also keeps the mattress cool during the night, regulating the temperature to provide you a comfortable environment for sleeping.

The overall structure of the mattress allows good blood pressure and ensures complete relaxation during sleep. The individually wrapped coils in the spring layer insulate movement, thus allowing you to turn in your sleep without disturbing your partner. The additional filling adds comfort and completes the picture.

The Haugsvar mattress is designed for use on one side only so there is no need to turn it over. It comes roll packed, which means it will take a few days for it to get completely straight. Off-gassing is present, of course, since the materials used in this, as well as in any mattress, will release a chemical odor for a few weeks. To help speed up the process, air out the mattress on a balcony or a room with a good air flow at least a few hours per day.

Thanks to the high quality springs and the way they are wrapped, motion transfer is really amazing with the Haugsvar spring mattress.  The noise is reduced to minimal levels, allowing you to sleep without interruptions. According to customers’ opinions, the overall sleep experience with this spring mattress is outstanding.

IKEA does recommend you to purchase the rest of the bedding that will make the Haugsvar mattress perform its best. The products that go with it are the same ones recommended for the Haugesund spring mattress, which are the Espevar slatted mattress base, the Luroy slatted bed base and the Tananger or Tussoy mattress toppers.

The mattress and bed base serves as a foundation while the mattress toppers are optional, depending on whether you like the original firmness of the mattress. If it seems too firm or too soft for you, getting a topper of corresponding structure will usually solve the problem.

Pricing, shipping and other details

Last but very important difference between the two models we compared in this review is the price. Because of the more advanced structure and material, the Haugsvar mattress is slightly more expensive than the Haugesund. 

However, even when slightly more expensive, this mattress is still one of the best deals on the market, considering the value it offers. It is roll packed for convenient shipping, allowing you to transport it yourself. However, it will take a few days to get back into its regular shape.

As with all IKEA mattresses, the Haugsvar comes with a 25 year limited warranty. The warranty covers all manufacturing defaults while any customers’ fault is not within its limits.

IKEA is known for offering their customers a one year exchange policy, which allows you to exchange your mattress for any other IKEA’s mattress. To be able to make the exchange, the mattress you bring back must be clean and undamaged. Keep in mind that refunds are not available.

Is IKEA Haugsvar Mattress Good?

IKEA Hesstun Spring Mattress Review

IKEA Hesstun Spring Mattress Review

IKEA Hesstun Spring Mattress

Investing just a little more money than with the Haugsvar mattress you could get IKEA’s Hesstung spring mattress and enjoy your sleep every night. This mattress, as well as all the mattresses from IKEA’s line, is designed and manufactured in Sweden. Therefore, the quality is guaranteed, no matter the cheap price.

In IKEA’s case, a lower price does not mean lower quality because they tend to create the most affordable offers for their customers without compromising quality. In this review, we will break down the good and the bad sides of IKEA’s Hesstun spring mattress.

IKEA Hesstun Spring Mattress Review

IKEA Hesstun Spring Mattress
IKEA Hesstun Spring Mattress
IKEA Hesstun Spring Mattress

Structure

The Hesstun mattress offers enhanced comfort and support, thanks to the double spring layer. Unlike the Haugsvar mattress, the Hesstun mattress has an additional layer of mini springs that provide twice as much comfort and resilience.

The mattress in queen size has 594 regular pocket springs and 594 mini pocket springs on top of the regular ones (in the queen size mattress). The spring layers are topped with two layers of foam, first one being cold foam of 1.8 PCF. The second foam layer is polyurethane foam of 1.7 PCF.

Size

The mattress comes in typical four sizes; twin, full, king and queen size. Depending on the size, the number of pocket springs varies. The mattress consists of four layers that make it 32 cm thick.

Materials

The regular as well as the mini pocket springs are made of high quality steel and are very responsive to your movement. The two remaining layers are made of polyurethane foam and cold foam, making the perfect combination for comfort and support.

The ticking, cover and the handle are made of combinations of cotton and polyester. The lining is made of non-woven polypropylene. The materials should not be bleached, tumble dried, dry cleaned or ironed

How it feels

The Hesstun IKEA spring mattress is available as firm or medium firm, depending on your personal preference. The highly resilient foam layer on top of the springs allows for good pressure relief in your body. The mini pocket springs are designed to follow the contours of your body and form a firmer surface, thus enhancing the overall comfort of the mattress.

The additional filling adds comfort, as well as the stretch material on the surface of the mattress that allows the springs to follow your movement accurately. According to customers’ opinions, the Hesstun spring mattress is a great solution for side sleepers because it offers just the right combination of firmness and softness.

Even though this mattress has a high rating on the IKEA store, there have been some negative comments, complaining about how saggy the mattress is. Some customers have experienced the mattress getting dents in the spots where they were resting most of the time.

After we analyzed all customers’ ratings and comments about the product, we have concluded that the mattress may not hold up heavier weight. Some consumers commented that the mattress is too soft and heavy for a heavier person.

The Hesstun mattress is designed for use on one side only, meaning turning it over is not recommended. Another thing customers have found inconvenient is that the Hesstun mattress, unlike most of the other IKEA mattresses, doesn’t come roll packed. That means transporting it will be a struggle, especially getting it into the house and to the bedroom.

Besides a few flaws such as the packaging and the weight limitations, there were no other negative comments or complaints about this mattress. Most people like and enjoy sleeping on it as their everyday bed setup.

Speaking of bed setups, what goes best with the Hesstun spring mattress are the Espevar slatted mattress base for bed frame, the Luroy slatted bed base and the Kungsmynta mattress protector. With this IKEA mattress base and bed base, the Hesstun mattress will be a complete relaxation heaven for you, any time you go to sleep. The mattress protector is optional, depending whether you want to preserve the mattress for a longer period of time.

Off-gassing will naturally be happening for a few weeks until the mattress airs out. Letting it air out in open space for a few hours per day is highly recommended. Motion transfer is not an issue since the coils are individually wrapped and thus insulate movement very well, allowing you to turn without waking up your partner. The cold foam layer on top keeps the temperature neutral so the mattress does not get too hot nor too cold, which significantly improves the overall sleep experience.

Pricing, shipping and other details

Although it is slightly more expensive than some of the spring mattresses in IKEA’s line, the Hesstun spring mattress offers great quality and value that’s worth investing in. Even at the slight higher price, this mattress is still one of the best options for the money because there are so many overpriced products on the market.

As mentioned earlier, the Hesstun spring mattress does not come roll packed. Now, that might be a problem if you were planning to transport it in your car. Transporting it in a van would be possible but it would still be a hassle, since the mattress is quite heavy and thus difficult to carry around.

In both cases, the packaging presents a big inconvenience but it can be solved by signing up for IKEA’s shipping service. The service will, however, cost you some extra dollars but it will be well worth it to save yourself time and struggle with such a large mattress on your hands.

IKEA offers a 25 year warranty on their mattresses as well as a one year trial period. The warranty covers all manufacturing defaults while any damage done by the consumer will not be covered. During the generous trial period, you can return the mattress in exchange for any other IKEA mattress. To do so, your mattress must be clean and undamaged. Exchange for money is not available.

IKEA Holmsbu Spring Mattress Review

IKEA Holmsbu Spring Mattress Review

IKEA Holmsbu Spring Mattress

IKEA mattresses are known for their high quality and affordable prices. At IKEA, all products have the quality and the price in proper proportions. Meaning, you get what you pay for but even the price you pay for very high quality is lower than what you might pay to other brands on the market.

Whilst that is the deal with all IKEA mattresses, the Holmsbu spring mattress stands out with an even better offer. IKEA has introduced new lower prices for this mattress, meaning every size of the mattress has a lowered price. Besides the quality, the second best thing IKEA offers are low prices, which is another reason why customers are very satisfied.

IKEA Holmsbu Spring Mattress Review

IKEA Holmsbu Spring Mattress
IKEA Holmsbu Spring Mattress
IKEA Holmsbu Spring Mattress

Structure

The Holmsbu spring mattress has quite a complex structure. It consists of two pocket spring layers that provide great support for the user. On top of the double spring layer is the mini pocket spring layer which adds comfort and enables the mattress to follow your body as it moves during sleep.

With the right support comes the right amount of comfort. The comfort layers consist of two poly foam layers of 1.7 PCF and 1.5 PCF. The mattress is topped with a memory foam layer of 3.1 PCF which contains gel capsules that don’t get warm quickly and thus regulate the temperature during the night.

Size

The Holmsbu mattress, just like the Hjellestad mattress, comes in three sizes which are full, king and queen size. Twin size of this mattress is not available. The mattress is 45 cm thick, making it the thickest mattress among all IKEA spring, foam and latex mattresses.

The Holmsbu spring mattress weighs 61 kg which makes it a struggle to get it in your home and place it in the right spot. Transportation is not much easier either, since the mattress does not come roll packed.

The full size Holmsbu mattress contains 616 mini pocket springs, 475 mini pocket springs under the first layer, and 475 pocket springs at the bottom. The number of the springs depends on the size of the mattress you choose.

Materials

Besides steel spring coils, polyurethane foam and memory foam, the mattress consists of combinations of cotton and polyester (ticking). The wadding inside the mattress consists of Polyester / viscose fibers. The lining is made of non-woven polypropylene, as usual for all IKEA mattresses.

The handle consists of 64% polyester and 36% cotton, polyester / viscose fiber and non-woven polypropylene while the cover is of similar material combination, consisting of non-woven propylene, 64% polyester, 36% cotton an polyamide. The zipper is made of 100% polyamide.

The cover of the mattress is removable and thus can and should be washed in the washing machine. However, you should not tumble dry it, dry clean it, bleach it or iron it. An extra protective cover also comes with the Holmsbu mattress. It has durable handles that make the moving process easier. Once the mattress is in place, all you have to do is unzip the protective cover and take it off.

How it feels

The combination of three spring layers and three foam layers makes for a very thick and comfortable, medium firm mattress that comes in white color. The spring layers provide support while the foam ones add comfort. The memory foam layer on top molds to the shape of your body and is highly resilient. Such structure improves your blood circulation and helps you relax during your sleep.

The memory foam also contains gel capsules which keep the temperature of the mattress even during the night. Meaning, the mattress wont get too warm nor too cold, providing you a comfortable surface for sleeping.

The pocket springs in the supportive layers are individually wrapped which allows them to move freely without affecting the other side of the mattress. Therefore, your movements will be well insulated and you wont disturb your partner anymore during your sleep.

The combination of comfort and support is outstanding when it comes to the Holmsbu mattress. According to customers’ reviews, people are satisfied with how well this mattress performs and how it feels to sleep on it every night. Some have even stated that their back pain has gone ever since they started using IKEA’s Holmsbu spring mattress.

However, there have been complaints about the durability of the mattress in general. Some customers stated that over a year long period of use, the sides of the mattress started sinking which could feel very uncomfortable. Therefore, if you’re looking for a mattress that will last for years and years, Holmsbu might just not be the right choice.

On the other hand, if you’re ready to pay the price of replacing it over a longer period of time, you can enjoy its comfort and all the benefits it carries along. The mattress is designed to be used on one side only so turning it over once it wears out is not an option. While temperature regulation and motion transfer are a plus for the Holmsbu spring mattress, there is the negative side of off-gassing.

A strong chemical odor will be present during the first couple weeks of using the product. Airing the mattress out every day will help speed up the off-gassing problem significantly. However, this flaw should not be taken into consideration too much since every mattress you purchase will be off-gassing for the first few weeks.

Pricing, shipping and other details

As mentioned in the beginning of our review, IKEA offers a new lower price for the Holmsbu spring mattress. As you can tell, the price is lower for each mattress size, making a great opportunity for folks who want to get a high quality, comfortable mattress without breaking the bank. Even though IKEA’s mattresses are already affordable enough, an additional discount is a great chance that you shouldn’t miss out on.

When it comes to shipping, there is a problem with the packaging of the mattress. It does not come roll packed as most IKEA mattresses do and since it weighs 61 kg you can imagine how difficult it is to move it around your home. If you were hoping to save money by transporting the mattress yourself, in a car, you should know that it wont be an easy task to complete, unless you have a van and a helping hand.

Opting for IKEA’s shipping service is always a good idea, if you’re willing to pay a few extra bucks to save yourself the struggle. You may be familiar with IKEA’s warranty and trial period policies but if you’re not, the warranty that comes with the mattress lasts 25 years and covers only the manufacturing defaults on the product.

IKEA generously lets you try out the mattress for one year and if, during that period, you find that mattress unfit for any reason, you can exchange it for any brand new mattress in the store. However, to be able to do so your mattress must be clean and undamaged.

If you’re willing to look past that flaw, you can enjoy the comfort of the mattress for as long as it lasts!

IKEA Hjellestad Spring Mattress Review

IKEA Hjellestad Spring Mattress Review

IKEA Hjellestad Spring Mattress

If you’re not already familiar with IKEA, it is a Swedish company that designs and produces home furnishings and accessories, sold at very affordable prices. Among all those products is a mattress line, consisting of 15 different mattresses.

IKEA’s mattress line has everything you could wish for when choosing a mattress. From memory foam and latex mattresses to high quality spring mattresses, they have it all.

In this review, we will talk about one of their spring mattresses – the Hjellestad mattress. According to the information IKEA has provided, we are able to present the good and the bad sides of this spring mattress.

IKEA Hjellestad Spring Mattress Review

IKEA Hjellestad Spring Mattress
IKEA Hjellestad Spring Mattress
IKEA Hjellestad Spring Mattress

Structure

The Hjellestad mattress differs in structure from other IKEA spring mattresses. It consists of multiple layers, two of which are spring layers. The main layer and the additional mini spring layer are made of high quality steel.

The rest of the mattress consists of three comfort layers. One layer is polyurethane memory foam of 3.1 PCF, the second is regular poly foam of 1.7 PCF and the third layer is another layer of polyurethane foam of 1.5 PCF.

Size

The five layers this mattress consists of make it 39 cm thick. The mattress weighs 51 kg which makes it difficult to move and transport. Unlike many IKEA’s mattresses, the Hjellestad does not come in all four sizes. Instead, it is available in full, king and queen size while twin size is not produced.

The full size Hjellestad spring mattress consists of 475 pocket springs and 475 mini pocket springs that add ore comfort when placed on top of the main spring layer. Note that the number of pocket springs varies, depending on the size of the mattress.

Materials

As mentioned above, the comfort material in this mattress is memory foam and polyurethane foam. Steel springs make the spring layers that give support to your body during sleep. The cover of the mattress is made of non-woven polypropylene, polyamide and combination of polyester and cotton.

The ticking is also a combination of polyester and cotton while the lining is done using non-woven polypropylene. The cover is removable and washable. However, it should not be bleached, tumble dried, dry cleaned or ironed.

What is interesting about this mattress and makes it stand out above other spring models is the protective cover that comes with it. This extra protective cover has handles that make the mattress easier to carry around. Once the mattress is in place, you simply have to unzip the cover and remove it.

How it feels

The overall thickness of the mattress can tell you a lot about how comfortable it is. The main pocket spring layer provides the right support, needed to make the mattress firm enough.

Thanks to additional foam layers, this mattress is not too soft nor too firm, which sorts it in the medium firm category. The mini springs layer on top of the main spring layer adds comfort and allows the mattress to follow your movement more efficiently.

The individually wrapped coil springs insulate movement very well, making it possible for you to turn in your sleep as much as you wont without waking up your partner.

The memory foam molds to the shape of your body and fits you just right. It gets back in flat shape very quickly after you move from that one spot you’ve been on for a while. This layer also enhances blood circulation and relaxation of your whole body. The generous fillings other than memory foam are two layers of poly foam that add enough softness to balance out the situation.

Even though there are no customers’ reviews that confirm the off-gassing issue, it is to be expected that the mattress will release a chemical odor a few weeks. Air the mattress out on a balcony or any room with good air flow to ensure the off-gassing process ends quickly. The Hjellestad mattress is designed to be used on one side only, meaning there is no need to turn it over.

As coordinating product that go well with this mattress, IKEA recommends the Espevar slatted mattress base, the Luroy slatted bed base, the Rosendun mattress protector and the Skugglilja sheet set.

Pricing, shipping and other details

The price of the Hjellestad mattress depends on its size. A mattress of this quality for a price lower than 1000$ is very difficult to find on the market. Therefore, trying out IKEA mattresses is highly recommended.

A huge inconvenience is the fact that this mattress does not come roll packed. Meaning, transporting it in a car by yourself will be a struggle, keeping in mind that the mattress weighs 51 kg and wont be moved that easily. To save yourself the struggle, opting for IKEA’s shipping service is a great idea. However, it will open up additional costs and the mattress will take about a week to arrive.

As usual, IKEA offers a 25 year warranty on all their mattresses, including the Hjellestad. During the warranty period, the company will be responsible for all manufacturing defaults and none customers’ faults. Besides the warranty, IKEA offers a generous trial period which lasts one year.

Therefore, you have 365 days to try out the mattress and if you don’t like it, you can exchange it for another model as long as yours is clean and undamaged. Other than that, IKEA doesn’t offer any exchanges such as money refunds.
