Places to buy a mattres?

I left off the last S for savings. Ok well back when I was like 2...mattresses must have gone a long term sale because it seems like they've been on sale ever since. Any suggestions on places to buy? I'd be looking for a mattress, box, and frame. Seems like just about everyone has them...Mattress giant, American Mattress, Wicks, Marshall Fields...holy crap that's a lot. I'm just trying to save myself some driving around. One place might have a coupon for a free frame, another for delivery, etc...

Also what should I expect to pay for a plain ole' queen size mattress. I don't need any special select comfort or to be able to jump up and down on the bed without spilling a glass of wine on the other end of it. Any suggestions are more than welcome. And no don't tell me to just sleep on the motorcycle, in the car, on the floor, outdoors under the stars (already heard those).

I would say the cheapest would start at about $500 and go up from there.

As far as places, The skys the limit as you already know


EDIT: If your looking for the cheapest no frills set, Just call all the places and then drive to the cheapest

I don't think you really wanna buy the cheapest unless you lay on it first. If you pick a shitty mattress you will know it in the long run with restless nights and back pain allday.


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!

I got a very nice queen pillowtop (Sealy) with a boxspring from Darvin Furniture for like $450. That was about two years ago though.

one thing to remember is that all of these mattress stores stock the same mattresses, but they stock them under different names. also, you can always negotiate the price on the mattress. i learned that these guys are worse than used car salesman when it came to haggling. also, if you don't need the frame or free delivery, you can get them to knock more money off of the price of the mattress.
I payed about $800 for a double pillow top from american mattress.

you mean you can't buy everything you need from ebay?

you're getting this delivered anyway by truck so who needs a local brick & mortar. go surf www.mattress.com or something

I've bought from American mattress with good results. Gautham is correct...most places all sell the same manufacturer just under a different lable. The salesman there whipped out this table that listed all the model equivalents from the various manufacturers.

My Sterns & Foster traditional inner spring has lasted me a good 8 years, but its starting to sag in the middle. I need a firm bed and the hammock effect has been bothering my back lately.

Im actually in the market for a foam bed....been doing some homework and its exhausting with all the knockoffs of the tempurpedic foam beds.

Good replies...this should help me quite a bit when I got shopping tonight and tomorrow. Never knew you could haggle over mattress prices...what's standard? I mean if a mattress is listed for $500 flat...can I expect to get 100 off, more, less?

I went to Marshall Fields and they quoted me $1100, went to Carson's and they quoted me $1090, went to the Bedding Experts and they sold me the same mattress for $200 less.

The low down is that each store has the same stuff but the various models all have different names. The key is that like models all begin with the same letter. For example the Sterns and Foster firm model is called the Nordic at Carson's and its called the Nantucket at the Bedding Experts.

Something to do with the contracting and sales I guess.

Blah, Blah, Blah

i bought the foam bed last year, it was expensive, but damn is it comfortable, i would recommend it to anybody. If you catch the sale, I think I paid like $1100 for a queen sized with frame and boxspring, and it's a pillowtop (don't remember the brand offhand)
