Buying a new bed. (Mattress and Box Spring)

Postby Bioshock on Mon Feb 18, 2013 10:49 pm

I was going to buy a Super Pillow Top queen size from The Original Mattress Factory.

So far, my experience with them has been nothing but positive. Anyone buy a mattress and box spring through them before? Anyone have any thoughts?

What i'm getting:

Queen Size Super Pillow Top (Spring bed)
Split Box spring
New Frame

I can't vouch for the Original Mattress Company, but last year, my wife and I did some shopping for a new mattress. We shopped around to a ton of places and ended up getting a set made by American Sleep company. The quality of this set is just amazing and a year later still feels like the day we got it. They are American made in an employee-owned company, if that is important to you. Usually independent stores sell this brand (where we got ours), but they do have them at Sam's Club too.

Spend the money on a sleep number. After 7 years there is no difference in the mattress. Lifetime warranty too. A Dyson and a Sleep Number in every home. Thats what I say...

I have tried the sleep number bed and not been impressed. The two favorites of mine were the top level pillow top and the synthetic foam.

I have a king size pillow top.... I'm not sure from who but I love it. I also was not impressed with the sleep number.

My biggest problem is I don't sleep anymore. All that bed goes to waste.

I have a king size from the Original Mattress Factory and it is still in great shape after almost 10 years. I need something extra firm and this one still provides the right support. Something that people often forget is to turn and flip the mattress every few months. I have been trying to do that regularly and I think it definitely has extended the life of the mattress and maintained the comfort level.

If you can't get to her I am sure her boyfriend will talk to you due to his lack of popularity on the team.

Isn't a sleep number a glorified air mattress

I slept on a sleep number once and it was really bad compared to my bed from the Original Mattress Factory.

I got my bed from JCPenney. Its a Queen sized bed that is now sitting in storage as we use my girlfriend's full sized bed. :pop:

When we move to a new apartment in the fall though...we are definitely going to the queen.

I have no idea how 2 people sleep in a full size bed. A queen is borderline too small for us. California king or bust once we buy our own home.

Its fine in the winter, but not great in the summer. I just want a new place so that we can bring my extra stuff out of storage.

tempur-pedic. it's worth every penny. the only bad thing about owning a tempur-pedic is that it makes staying in hotels difficult because the beds aren't as comfortable.

KENNY the kangaroo has a rip off sealy (serta) memory foam bed and while it was pricey (not as pricey as a tempur pedic, but still pricey) it was a great investment
