Hopefully this is the correct forum...I'm living on my own for the first time and I'm in the market to purchase a new mattress. I'm curious how much I should be budgeting for this? I don't need a top of the line mattress but I'd like something decent and comfortable. I've shopped around a bit in stores but supposedly you are supposed to negotiate prices- employees were ready to negotiate before I had even said anything. I wasn't ready to buy at the time, though, so I didn't bother trying to talk to them about prices. Would $600-$800 be enough?

Spa Sensations Memory Foam Mattress - Walmart.com

We've had this for two months now, and love it. We have the king, which was $40 more than the current price when we bought it in October. I've slept on Tempurpedic mattresses, and the difference between them and this has been unnoticeable so far. Definitely a great deal. The only thing I'm not sure of at this point is the longevity of the mattress, but only time will tell with that.

Here's a site for tips on buying a mattress of any type.
Mattress Facts (http://www.bettersleep.org/onbettersleep/mattress_facts.asp - broken link)

We bought a queen sized coiled mattress for $495.00 that has 950 coils for comfort. We bought ours direct from a mattress distributor. He told us the best built mattresses have at least 850 coils for longer lasting and comfort. Your decision will be made upon confort and style. Check the above web site for guidelines.
