I am remodeling the guest bedroom and I have a Thomasville Bed Frame but I want to put in a cheap box spring and mattress on it. Comfort is really not the goal for the guest room but I just want something that I do not have to spend much money on.

My motto is an uncomfortable guest is a guest who will not over stay their welcome

What store would you recommend?

One of my best friends owns a small mattress wholesale company. He does a tremendous amount of business because his prices are so cheap. They stock most stuff and just have a warehouse they keep it in. He can deliver as well if you would like. They have everything from what looks like a piece of cardboard (lol!) to memory foam.

Mario is his name and cell is 704-724-5952. Trevor is mine.

If all else fails sams club or bj's can be pretty cheap and reasonable.

Oh and you know from there the mattress is not a refurbished version

when you say refurbished... Do you mean preowned?

Be very cautious of "cheap" mattresses. They did a big investigation on them in NY a couple of years ago and it was REAL SCARY how old nasty ones were recovered and looked beautiful, but inside it was a real health hazard. Board of Health closed down a lot of the places in the South Bronx selling them. Don't mean to scare you but it doesn't hurt to be aware.

ok but you convince me not to even think about it if it not new dont get it when it comes to beds.

I dont want to even question if I am buying bed mites or worse mold.
I like my guests not to scratch and ability to live the next day

I am going to price compare the recomindations by our wonderful members above and below I do appreciate everyone input.

I know I should pull up the numerous cotsco and bj threads but will I also have to buy a membership and is it monthly payment for membership , annual or one time only?

Sunny if you want the ultimate cheap mattress go to any Goodwill store & look near the dumpster. People think that Goodwill takes mattresses, but they don't. So people usually dump them at night by their dumpster rather than take them home.
