4th of July Mattress Sale!

Independence Day Mattress Sale!

The birth of our country (4th of July) is another good reason to have a massive mattress sale. I did a quick review of various chains to see what was being offered.

Two chains are featuring $1000 off a name-brand mattress. No telling what type of quality it may be. Another is offering free delivery over $599 and free memory foam pillows with a purchase. Some offer 50% or 70% off, they don’t say off of what, so who knows if this is any real savings. Another large chain is advertising two name brand queen sets in the high $300s. My expectation is that these are the bare minimum in comfort and quality at those price points.

Tempurpedic Mattress Review

I am coming up on my 60th day on my Tempurpedic Cloud Supreme mattress and I can still say that this is the best mattress I have EVER slept on to date. The benefits are numerous – no noise, no motion transfer, no back  or shoulder pain and absolutely no body impressions.

There is nobody on the planet that is more hot natured than me. But only a couple of times have I noticed that I was sleeping warmer than usual. BTW – I often woke up with a sweaty pillow on my old innerspring mattress, so I think this might happen on virtually all mattresses. When I have been warmer than usual, I usually could trace it back to lifestyle or metabolism issues – eating or working out later than normal and these were easily fixed by less or no covers. The benefit of perfect alignment and no pain outweighed any issues related to temperature.

The Deal Is Always Better At The Last Mattress Store

What I love the most about the big Summer holiday sales season is the people that swear that the grass is greaner at the last mattress shop.

I was at a store during Memorial Day weekend and heard variations of this theme numerous times. Sometimes it was simply confusion. There are thousands of mattresses on the market and product confusion is rampant among consumers who only shop once every decade. Bad information from the previous mattress salesperson, that does not know their product, was another culprit.
