Letter From the Owner, Smith Mason:
Hello and welcome to giant-bean-bags.com! I'm the owner, Smith Mason. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for visiting our bean bag store.
We believe in the importance of family. Family is number one for us. We believe that we should take time and effort to nurture the relationships of those whom we love. I like the Tim Ferriss quote (he may not have originally said this but I heard it from him first), where he defines success as "long dinners with friends." It takes effort to make sure that we don't let outside influences take over our lives and affect family values. It can become very easy to get overwhelmed by work, or other things. But, time with family is healing and will revitalize us in a way that few other activities can. That's why I love doing what we do.
People buy our bean bags, especially the really big ones, because they are going to enjoy it with their family and friends. The bean bag usually is going to go in a rec room, a game room, or sometimes a child's playroom.
What I like about our very large bean bags is that they're not just for one person. Our bean bags are very big so they are generally used for two or more people. Studies have shown that physical contact releases something called oxytocin. That oxytocin is a hormone that makes us feel a sense of bonding. So just being physically close two family members helps us to feel more emotionally close as well. In today's day in age, I think that is more important than ever. That release of oxytocin happens when we hug someone, shake their hand, or do you have any other kind of physical contact. This is one of the reasons why I believe massages are so popular today. Sure feels great, but as we become more disconnected from each other as people, we have a bigger desire for actual human contact.
Of course, it's great to be on social media and connect with friends from across the globe. We can Skype people in another country. We can send emails. We can use apps like WhatsApp, SnapChat, or Instagram to share updates on our lives with pictures and messages. But, nothing replaces being physically present with friends and family. For this reason, we are very excited about what we do with our bean bags.
Our bean bags are meant to be enjoyed with other people. We don't even have smaller sizes of bean bags. Not that there's anything wrong with sitting by yourself, but we prefer the larger models because they're more family and friends oriented. That's why we made Giant Bean Bags. We are all about the big bean bags that you can enjoy with your loved ones.
Biggest Bean Bags Online
Here, we have the biggest bean bags available online. I challenge you to find one bigger than our colossal eight foot model.This bean bag measures 8 feet wide by 8 feet long. Or, 96 x 96 inches. It is 34 inches high and weighs 130 pounds and is big enough to be a bed. You won't find a bigger bean bag.
So, besides their colossal size, what's the difference between our bean bags and everyone else's? That's a great question!
One of the main things that makes our beanbags great is they are filled with ultra-comfortable shredded foam. This isn't just any foam filling. This is high quality, furniture-grade, polyurethane foam used in normal furniture. Also our bean bags are Earth friendly because the foam is made from 100% recycled material. Not only is this foam feeling more comfortable and softer than ordinary bean fillings, it is also safer.
Why? Generally when you think of a beanbag you think of a large bag filled with beans, right? But, our bean bags are filled with our high quality foam. Because of this, there's no risk of choking for children and pets. There are no beans for there to be a choking Hazard at all! So, not only is the foam filling a lot more comfortable, but it is also safer for children and pets. You may have seen that video on YouTube where someone does a front flip into a bean bag (not one of ours) and the beans just explode all over the place. Well, with our bean bags this will never happen to you.
Our bean bags are filled with 100% green, environmentally friendly, high quality polyurethane, furniture grade shredded foam. That's a mouthful, but I think you get the point.
So, what else makes our bean bags great?
Another thing that makes our bean bags so comfortable to sit on is that they all come with a beautiful microsuede cover. The microsuede is very soft to the touch and is extremely comfortable. Not only that, the texture is very luxurious and easy on the eyes. But, that doesn't mean that it's not durable. All of our microsuede covers are removable and machine washable.
You can take the cover off and wash it in your washing machine. For 8 foot models, keep in mind that you will need a very large washing machine to do this or you can clean it like this. All you need to do, though, is take the microsuede cover off of your beanbag. Underneath the cover, there is a cloth liner that holds the foam of your bean bag together. So, you can take the cover off without having to deal with a lot of foam flying everywhere.
You just take the cover off of the bean bag and the foam is held in place by that liner while you wash your cover.
Another great benefit of our covers is that they come double stitched to be more durable. The double stitching makes it harder for the bean bag to come apart at the seams. You may find that some other brands will start to pull apart at the seams and that is because they only have the single stitching. All of our giant bean bags have a high quality cover that is double stitched so that you can enjoy your beanbag for many years to come. Your investment in this bean bag will serve you greatly for a very long time.
Something else that sets giant bean bags apart is our guarantee. If you are not 100% satisfied with your bean bag you can return it within 30 days for a 110% refund of your purchase price! We offer a 110% percent guarantee because we are certain that you will love your bean bag. As you can see we have many excellent reviews on are bean bags from people all over the country who simply love them. If you do decide to return it you will have to pick up the shipping, though. However, you'll find that with a 110% guarantee it is more than fair. Keep in mind that if you completely unpack the bean bag and it fills with air it is going to be very difficult to ship back. Once it has completely expanded the bean bag will be very heavy and it is it requires a vacuum sealing to get it into the box that it came in.
So, we recommend you take a good look at your bean bag when it arrives examine the cover make sure that you like the color, the foam feels comfortable, etc, before you start unpacking everything and letting the air get to the foam filling. This will make sure that you are really satisfied with your purchase and can enjoy it for many years to come.
Another big benefit we offer is free shipping on all of our products! That's right, even our 8-foot model comes with free shipping. You don't pay a cent!
A lot of people wonder about the logistics of receiving their bean bag through the mail. How do we ship our huge bean bags from our factory to your house? Well, the foam filling that will go in your bean bag is vacuum sealed into a cube. Depending on the size that you buy, you may receive one or two boxes of this vacuum sealed foam. Also, your liner will likely come in a separate package.
So, we vacuum seal everything and send it via FedEx. Most FedEx drivers will just leave the package at your door. If you have any kind of special instructions for delivery you can let us know in our check out process in the shipping notes area.
Once you receive your bean bag, what comes next? The first thing you do is remove the box and take a look at your cover and your foam. You want to remove the plastic from the liner and the foam, being careful not to cut your liner.
Then you will insert the foam into the liner, unzip the cover, and put the liner with the foam into the cover. From this point you can roll the back around and fluff up the foam filling. As air comes back into contact with the foam your beanbag will expand and will be about full size within 24 hours. The more you fluff up the bean bag manually on your own the quicker the foam will return to its full size.
Some people like to know a little bit more about the technical aspects of their bean bag purchase. Online security in a pretty big issue today, so I want to tell you a little bit about what we do to protect your information when you buy from us. Our website is protected by an SSL certificate. SSL stands for secure socket layer. When you check out, you will see that in the web address bar at the top of your browser, the URL will change. It changes from just "www" to "https://www". That "s" in "https" stands for "secure". Once you enter the checkout process everything that you do is processed through 128 bit encryption, which is the highest standard today in Internet security. So, your information is completely safe with us.
Some people want to know where we ship to and if they have to pay sales tax.
We ship to everywhere within the continental United States. That means that we ship our bean bags to the 48 contiguous states. So, basically all the states except for Alaska and Hawaii. Sorry, Alaska and Hawaii. Nothing personal. In keeping our shipping to only include the continental US, we are able to offer free shipping to everyone and keep costs down and keep our site very straightforward and simple.
The only people who have to pay sales tax are those who live in the state of Nevada. Why is this the case? Our company is headquartered in Nevada, and when making a any kind of business transaction within the state, sales tax has to be collected. It's about 7% to 8%. The exact number depends on what municipality with in Nevada you live in. There is the Nevada state sales tax of 6.85%. But the municipalities also charge an extra percent and a half or so in sales tax. Check out this map, to see the different sales tax percentages by county in Nevada.
However, if you live outside of the state of Nevada and in any of the other contiguous 48 states, you pay no sales tax. The price you see on the bean bags' product page is all you pay. We offer free shipping for all our bean bags. And, unless you live in Nevada, there is no sales tax. So, the price that you see on the individual product pages for most people is the final price for you will have to pay. We like to keep things simple and this is a really easy way for you to know exactly what you're getting and how much you're going to pay for it.
