Costco - Barryton Plush Queen Mattress

It was a set, mattress and box spring.

I bought a Novaform memory foam mattress a year and a half ago from Costco and liked it a lot. One day when I was changing the sheets, I noticed a rip in the mattress cover. Costco is the BEST for taking things back. I took it back, got a FULL refund (no questions asked), and fully intended on buying another memory foam mattress. They were out of queen size memory foam, so I opted for the Posturepedic Barryton, and am glad I did. It is the most comfortable, restful mattress I ever slept on, plus it's easier to get out of than a memory foam, and it sleeps much cooler. Memory foam mattresses sleep hot.

You just can't beat Costco!
Do you have to be a "member" of Costco to get this deal in store?

Yes, the membership is $50 a year, but WELL worth it. They sell the highest quality products for less. Costco is WAY better than Sam's Club, and Consumer Reports rates Costco very highly.

I realize this is way over the $500 budget, but I'd also like to point out that those budget ones don't really save you any money in the long run. I paid about $2500 for my last Serta and it lasted 10 years. Prior to that, I bought budget ones and ended up trading them in every couple years and never really felt very comfortable on it.
I bought this one last year at Lacks: Sealy | Embody by Sealy Latex Foam Mattresses (http://sealy.com/Mattress-Brands/Embody-by-Sealy/Latex-Foam.aspx - broken link) which you obviously can't do anymore thanks to them going out of business. It may seem like it's crazy expensive (and it was), but also definitely worth every penny. With this mattress, you basically lay down and you're asleep. I never toss and turn or even remember falling asleep. I'm just gone almost instantly and that includes when I'm trying to stay awake to watch a TV show.
BTW, I got the latex over memory foam because I liike sleeping on the mattress instead of in it.

Rd- would you say that this is a "firm" mattress? I need something that is not too firm, due to back problems.

UPDATE:

I think I have found the mattress of my dreams and at an awesome price too. I was at Sam's Club (I'm not a member) yesterday. They had 3 mattresses on display to lay on and try out. My favorite was the Serta Cushion Firm Eurotop Queen Mattress for $399.00. The corresponding Serta Queen Boxspring is $122.00.

Here's the great part though: according to a Sam's employee, he's aware of an "upcoming" special (he thinks it's on the 4th of July but he is not 100% sure) where the boxspring and the mattress, as a set, will be discounted to $389.99. Delivery for both is a flat rate of $60.00.

So I'll be calling Sam's over the next several weeks to see when that price drops. Of course, I'll become a member too in order to make that purchase.

*Excited*

Firm in an incredibly comfortable way. Latex is the one you feel like you're sleeping on and memory foam is the one you sleep in. That's the best way to think about the difference between the two. There's also no sinking and no disturbing the person next to you. My wife tends to get up and go to the bathroom and then plop back in the bed. I can't feel it with this bed.

I bought a mattress from Denver Mattress for my daughter and she loves it. It was about $450. Both my parents gave me the recommendations after they switched.

I came looking on city-data today before setting out on our search for a new mattress. I'm so happy I saw this post! We went over to this place - what a sweet family I'm glad to be buying from a small Texas business & their products are made in Texas too!
Thank you!

We love our Denver Mattress. The Dr Choice is one of their higher-end products - we went for a less expensive model and have no complaints.

Update #2:

I decided to go in a totally different direction!

I purchased a memory foam mattress instead from
Amazon.com>> Amazon.com: Sleep Innovations 10-inch Sure Temp Memory Foam Mattress - Queen Size: Home & Garden

One-day UPS shipping for my 90-pound mattress-in-a-box was ONLY $3.99, yes, three-dollars and ninety-nine cents! I have "Amazon Prime"; if you have that membership you automatically can get one-day shipping at that price.

I also purchased the bedframe on Amazon.com with one-day $3.99 shipping as well >> Amazon.com: Structures by Malouf HIGHRISE Folding Metal Bed Frame 14" High Bi-Fold Platform Base, QUEEN: Home & Garden

Last night was my first night in the mattress and I slept like a king!!!

I've attached some pics.
