    I'm looking to buy a new mattress. I've done comparison shopping and can probably get one cheaper on the Internet than I can at an physical store. Does anyone have any recommendations for a good website? I'm not looking high end, and will go for an inner spring more than memory foam or something cool like that.

    Very happy with a memory foam from www.bedinabox.com Since they can compress it into a fairly small box they can keep the shipping costs down, check it out before you rule out foam.

    You need to test them out in a store before you buy anything. I suggest going to Sleepy's and laying down on a few to find out what's comfortable for you when sleeping. Then leave without buying anything and return with a lady of the evening to test the mattresses out in other ways. Then wait for a holiday like President's Day for a good sale, but don't buy anything from the store where you tested the mattresses. If they'll let you do all of that nasty stuff in their showroom in the middle of the day then they aren't a reputable merchant and you shouldn't trust them. You're spending your hard-earned money and shouldn't have to risk receiving a mattress that's already been "broken in" by some vagrant with a daytime prostitute.

    There is a Macy's clearance store by Roosevelt Field on Long Island that I got a $1,800 mattress for $300 from.

    I was going to knock this, but from my initial scan, it seems to be getting surprisingly good reviews. Does anyone else have experience from Bed in a Box?

    Maybe check your local craigslist for a mattress peddler. I hear the refurbish so they're just like brand new.

    I'd like to help you out but I have a Sleep Number bed.

    I paid like 3 G's for it so I would guess that's out of your price range.

    I have a foam and I like it in the winter but it is hot in summer. Wife hates it all the time. She hated the last normal mattress, too. I guess a sleep number is on the horizon for us.

    I forget where we got the foam several years ago, but it was shipped in a box and when the plastic was cut, it sprung out fast like a damn life raft inflating. Then it took 6 hours to fully unfurl and take shape.

    Just bought one last week and it was $4800. Well worth it though. It practically melds to your body.

    I have to agree with the wise sage, Elder Maz... sleeping in a bed that costs about as much as an automobile is just pathological self-indulgence. This kind of self obsession with one's own comfort is the last step on the path before becoming one of those people who locomotes with a Rascal scooter and has to travel with their own "special pillow" Ugh... I fucking hate the "special pillow" people.

    Do like I do... sleep on a busted old mattress, a crappy Costco sofa, or even curled up on the floor like a dog. This country has gone soft enough, people... stop the madness.




    Oh... and a mattress bought at Roosevelt Field on Long Island? Oh yeah... that foul thing is most certainly saturated in cocoa butter and sickle cells.

    Well my chick did have trundle bed made with a custom made mattress from these guys:

    http://www.gardnermattress.com/

    And that is prob the only spring one I have ever slept on without waking up with a knife buried in my back.

    Oh like say generic brands of products at a supermarket mattresses are pretty much the same. Meaning the various mattress companies co-make various lines of mattress for different stores brands etc... so its damn near impossible to try to compare them.

    I could have sworn there was a more recent mattress discussion.
