"My Pillow" F Rating on BBB
Mike Lindell owner of My Pillow gladly and gleefully accepted his huge tax cut and now he is laying off 150 employees!
“My Pillow” has a BBB rating of F for unscrupulous business practices!
Ban his products!
This company is still rated ‘F’ from the BBB, and for good reason. The pillows are terrible for many and the company continued to misrepresent facts in their advertising. I know I can’t list websites here, but if you search the BBB for “My Pillow, Inc.” you’ll find the info we’ve referenced here. Please read the latest court order against them from Oct 2019 along with the reasons for the ‘F’ rating. Here’s part of it:
Reasons for Rating F My Pillow, Inc.
1. Failure to respond to 31 complaint(s) filed against business
2. Business has failed to resolve underlying cause(s) of a pattern of complaints
3. Government action(s) against the business
4. 4 complaint(s) filed against business that were not resolved
At this point I don’t care that HSN has stooped to the lows of QVC and let quality vendors go. HSN and QVC only care about making money, they don’t care about their customers anymore.
I own two of his pillows, I purchased them from Hsn about a year ago. My husband likes his, it is a medium. I have the firm but find it lumpy and I have neck pain from it so I have been searching for something I can stand for quite a while. I would never recommend these to anyone. Now he’s coming out with new bedding. No Thanks!
My family loves their My Pillows. We love how we can customize to our individual preferences. I also love how I can wash the pillows. Thanks HSN for offering a wonderful product from a great company! ❤️
That’s just wonderful that you love the pillows, but to say they’re a great company, NO. The BBB updated their rating info / alerts as recently as Oct 2019 AND there are customer complaints as recent as Feb 2020. No, they are NOT a great company. The BBB rating is still ‘F’!
I tried this pillow a few years ago and sent it back. Did not care for it at all!
The pillow is a scam. I was very upset, since I purchased several of them for gifts..paid postage…and then found our that they were like rocks! IT WAS TOO MUCH TROUBLE TO RETURN. i WAS UPSET THAT qvc SOLD A PRODUCT OF PROVEN QUESTIONABLE QUALITY.. As a result, I did not purchase household products from them for a long time. I am now very watchful of home products….
Perfect example of ‘If I don’t like it, nobody likes it’ mentality. There are many HSN and QVC customers who love My Pillow, including my family. Both shopping channels wouldn’t have Mike on as often as they do if they weren’t selling well. Sorry you didn’t like them but many LOVE their MY Pillows.
How is it a scam? Just because everyone does not like it does not make it a scam. I love mine! Not everyone is going to like the same things, but that does not make it a scam.
I would never buy a “my pillow” for many reasons. I would never buy a pillow from television. I choose to use my hard earned money for products I trust, from a vendor I trust and I can’t do either with these pillows.
READING is fundamental
“F” rating due to BOGO advertising 2017, ding-dong. Anyway, and…
Nice try. He “laid-off” 120 employees because he is renovating that production space which is being reconfigured for his new business endeavor.
“I had to lay them off because you can’t have employees in there while doing this big shift,” Lindell said.
He paid them all, gave them an extra week’s pay, told them they were welcome to find a new job on their own, work for another company that he had arranged to hire them, or wait for his call in six to eight weeks when the place is up and ready for them to work in.
What an awful boss (sarcasm).
“Most of the workers, I think, they will grab jobs right away, but hopefully some of them come back,” Lindell stated.
MyPillow employs about 1,500 people but with this new venture, Mike is hoping to bring that number up to 20,000 by the end of this year.
Wow, again, terrible guy to bring another 18,500 jobs to America.
Try READING the full article rather than a headline from Salon.com. And if you decide to post something, do a little research first, unless your goal is to spread non-truths and intentionally hurt an American company.
All you did was remind the world what an AMAZING company MyPillow is and what a terrific philanthropist Mr. Lindell is. Thank you for that. And thank you HSN and QVC, I bought and LOVE my MyPillows from you all and have never slept better!

I LOVE MyPillow!
Haters gonna hate. Keep those pillows coming!
I love my pillow and Mike Lindell! No hate from me!
I’m sure there are people that like it, but this pillow caused nothing but back and neck pain for me AND my daughter. These pillows are terrible and nothing will ever change our views on them.
WORST PILLOW EVER!
As far as the BBB rating, I will refrain from commentary for those that ignore them. Those ratings are important, ‘F’ ratings are not given out lightly.
Also, if you don’t believe the layoffs, do a very simple web search because the information is available. They DID receive huge tax breaks and the ARE laying off ~150 employees, as of 10 May 2019; this is in addition to the ~140 layoffs in 2017. He decided to cut ~9% of his workforce to “make room for a new venture.” If he cared about his employees at all he would have trained those employees to prep them for the changes rather than kicking them to the curb.
You told us to do a “very simple web search” – you obviously didn’t read anything you searched. You then “reported” that Lindell should have, “trained those employees to prep them for the changes rather than kicking them to the curb,” well, train them for what? Kicked them where? He’s renovating his building and when it’s finished, in 6 to 8 weeks, they come back. That’s what a layoff is (do a very simple web search on definition of “layoff” vs “firing”).
Geeze, I’ve never seen so many bitter women get that mad at a pillow. It’s a PILLOW. The “lady” doth protest too much, methinks; to the point where your obvious ulterior motive behind your hysteria has been exposed. Sleep tight, America.
BEST PILLOW EVER!!!
That “F” rating was in 2017 and was because he offered a “buy one, get one” deal. His current rating is “A”. I personally love my pillows and am able to sleep without neck pain – the only pillow that has allowed me to sleep with no pain! I will never give mine up!
Mike Lindell is very involved in charity, especially with organizations to help addicts and cancer.
Thank you, Kittengirl, for pointing out the unjustified and trivial (in my opinion) BBB rating. I don’t put a lot of weight in their ratings anyways. I don’t think they are neutral in the process. Will just leave it at that. As for My Pillow, we have a house full and my kids and husband love them. Only pillow I found that is easy to wash and dry and an easy part of my freshening the linens routine. I think the founder is very grateful for his success and generously supports many charities and organizations ❤️
I love my My Pillows.
If you look at ratings for most companies, you’ll see complaints.
Lots of people like Beekman, but I saw a complaint online that makes one of the guys look bad. I have to say, it affected my opinion of them.
I’ve had a MyPillow for a few years now and would never use another pillow. It’s so comfortable, I get a great night’s slip with it and it washes and dries beautifully.
Just because a company is “Made in the USA” doesn’t automatically make it great. Once a scammer, always a scammer. I was all for giving a recovering addict a break, but he’s done absolutely nothing but take what he can and give nothing back. Plus his products are overpriced , and he keeps coming out with more. Now taking the YUGE tax break and laying off loyal employees…they say the measure of a man…
Never ever been tempted to try this pillow and don’t know how so many of them have been sold. Hope more people check out the BBB rating before purchasing. I like my Tony Little pillow a lot; just wish HSN would sell them individually because hubby has his own pillow choice and the price for two is high.
