Tempur-pedic. You'll spend more but get some great sleep.

I've been thinking about 'The Sleep Number Bed'.

Anybody have one?

Am I understanding that you are admitting to knowingly buying stolen property ?

No not stolen, the guys allegedly buys mattresses that fall off delivery trucks and or have that tag that says "do not remove" missing. To my knowledge they are not stolen and I didn't buy the thing, that's why I'm looking for a king. Mine got messed up while moving

They really are good. I've had one for about a year. For a king mattress you are looking at about $3000 or more, you could go up to $4-5k depending on what you buy.

Tempur-Pedic They are so much better, we love ours but your electric bill will go up. They are hot, and we crank our a/c down.

Yup, love it. The one I have is several years old, it was a hand me down when my parents decided to upgrade to a new one.

You will probably pay between 2-3 grand for one, but it is worth it. I had a tempur pedic, but like the select comfort better, the tempur pedic was just too hot for me.

Just FYI that means they are probably:

1) Stolen
2) Factory defects
3) Returned used mattresses

Nothing falls off delivery trucks.

I have one. Love it. I've always had lower back/leg pain and it has seemed to be a lot less with this new bed.

Sleep number are incredible! Helps back issues, sciatica issues. Go to a sleep number store, get your correct number and buy one, We were out the door for $1500.00. A whole lot easier to move than temper.

I like sleep number, my wife hates it. Does not help her back pain.

We purchase ours from The Original Mattress Factory. Great price and terrific quality. I don't know if they are in your area.

I was in your shoes couple years ago...thought I wanted sleep number but a few nights at hotel with one changed my mind. was not as good as I thought and found myself messing with the adjuster all the time.

Then tried a Tempurpedic....great sleep actually and was not as warm as I thought in our humid hot summers here in Charleston...but the cost was way up there for a King with the soft top.

Friend told me of the ones sold at Costco so started some reading and such...bought one and had it shipped. It was OUTSTANDING.......but never unfolded all the way so called Costco and they had a new one sent and sent someone to pick up the one that was not unfolding completely. Two years now and it is still an outstanding mattress especially when I bought two springless box sets and put a sheet of plywood on them to give an absolutely flat base for mattress to sit.

I even bought a double bed version for our guest room....

I am 6'3" 245lb and wife is 5'3" and 130lb...and is best sleep either of us have ever had.....

Good luck.

Would you be talking about these 12" memory foam mattresses? Would these be comparable? I know it's sams club not Costco but they might be similar...
Thanks a lot I'm going to look into these if they are a similar match
