If it's for your everyday use, then you need to get where you can try it out.

Ah yes, memory foam. It does sleep hot.

I figure I will be using this item more than any other item in the house on a daily basis.

I opted for a memory foam Euro top mattress. It feels great.

I was about to get a Vera Wang from Sams but needed it before July 4th since my in laws are coming.

Sam's Wholesale has good name brand mattresses,Sears is good but my very favorite mattress is a Stearns and Foster Matress that you can pay over a 12 month period of time with no finance charge at Belk's. Ask for Susan H.,she has worked in this area for 30 years and will be wonderful help. These are more expensive mattresses but last a very long time and are so comfortable. We have had ours for 13 years and they are just like new. If these are too expensive for your budget Susan will help you find another brand. Be sur to lie down on the mattress for at leasr 10 minutes according to Consumer reports advice.

One of the best places I have found to purchase a mattress is at a store that makes the mattresses locally or even on-site. I just recently bought my mother a really nice bed set for her new home - and it only cost $700.

That number also included home delivery with "installation". They even tucked her sheets in for her.

Doesn't really matter where you buy it. I recently went mattress shopping (twice in a span of 3 months) and after much research, I found out about an interesting practice in the mattress industry. One mattress company can sell a particular model under several different names depending on where its being sold. For example, you might find a Serta 'Queenie' at Sears, while the exact same model is being sold at Macys as a Serta 'Regal'.

Yup, all of the mattress lines do that. Ashley Furniture (yuck) and other furniture manufactures do the same thing. It is just increases distribution and satisfies the retailer.

Make sure you find out the specs on the mattress.

Actually, if you are buying a mattress set for the master bedroom, I would buy from a smaller reputable dealer. One that has a history of taking care of the customer.

I would like to get a good mattress. I heard some negative things about Sleepy's. I was thinking about Macy's or Sears.
