In Search of the $200 Queen Mattress

True Story – I’m visiting a store and a lady comes in for her college age daughter. She is driving a luxury vehicle that would easily retail over $50k. Not that we should ever make judgements based on cars, clothing or jewelry, but I found it interesting.

She doesn’t want to spend over $300 for a queen set, delivery and frame – tax inclusive. Adding delivery, frame and tax to the equation, means the mattress set needs to be in the $200 range. The delivery will go to a remote college campus that is not regularly served by any retail chain, so the delivery cost will be greater.

Free Delivery

Does that mattress price include delivery?

Free Delivery/Free Frame – There are exceptions, but most of the time if these services are being advertised as free, the cost of delivery or the frame is buried in the mattress price. You might be overpaying, especially if you are picking up the mattress set yourself or already own a frame.

Also, always read the fine print. Free delivery may mean just to your door. There may be an additional charge for set up or removal of the old mattress or a fuel surcharge. Don’t get stuck with an old mattress that you can’t dispose. See accessories and services for more information.
