    Goodwill actually sells brand new unused mattress that are still in the plastic rapping. I bought mine from there, $200 for a brand new memory foam queen. And 5 years later it’s still as good as the day I bought it. No regrets. And I don’t care how much you make, no one is “too good” to shop at a thrift store.

    Honestly, there are only two altnernatives for a cheap new mattress: goodwill (yes many goodwill stores sell new mattresses not used (it is in fact illegal to sell a used mattress in a retail store), you have to ask, they're very basic but low price, are packed in plastic from the factory, and again NEW from major brand names), and Costco - costco's price may not be ridiculously cheap BUT they have the best return policy on earth. and you can buy on their website and return in store, long after you've been using it even. Most consumers are too 'icky feeling' about returning a mattress, but costco's return policy on mattresses is laid out in clear english and they accept them with no problem.

    Go to the nearest village and buy some sheep wool and then stuff it into a cover.
    Seriously, they work just fantastic. They are very common in Turkey, especially for rural places and I guess they must be so in any place where people feed sheep.

    One the workers at the retail stores won’t know what each part of mattress is cause all of there skill is to buy the product. Two retail stores will increase the price up a lot cause they need to make money from buying the products in the first place. Third if you want to know how to compare prices look up what the mattress is made of not name. Forth if you really want to know what each part of the mattress is and or what it does is look up it up and find how resistant it is to force and if it spreads force out or transfers it.

    as a mattess sales person the thing that always makes me so mad is the gel memory foam or cooling crap. In many independent reviews it was found that memory foam preformed about the same as gel foam, sometimes gel foam was worse. Like a mattress can't really be cooling, it's layers of insulation stacked up and stitched together for your comfort.
    Also, if you are a sweaty person foam mattresses aren't a good idea for you as they can collect water like a sponge and then grow mold.

    jimbelter2 Month ago

    The one thing I've noticed when shopping for a mattress is that they are tailored to a specific store so you can't comparison shop. And they do that by changing one item in the manufacturing process. That way you won't be able to negotiate for a better price because it's not the exact mattress at another store. I've seen this happen for quite a few years and this practice makes it nearly impossible to negotiate for a better deal

    Of course mattresses are a rip off, it is really based on if you can tolerate the bedding, affordable and a case of "Pick your poison" but here is the kicker, the government is the reason why a lot of products are the way they are today so as a deli clerk I can not sell you meat that has been opened and loosely wrapped that has been sitting around for an entire month because would you want to eat roast beef that hasn't been touched for an entire month? Plus Purple the mattress company gotten fingers pointed at them for a mysterious powder that was found on their mattresses which the purple company simply sue anyone that mentions it, of course these lawsuits are quickly dropped because if it was taken to court then the judge would ask "wait, what is this powder?" and depending on the judge Purple can get legal investigations now of course purple much like some small time game developers block and delete negative reviews

      Yes, people aren't broken, they just don't like being told how to behave. The moment you don't follow in line with one's expectations, they label you mentally ill. CBT is a joke which promotes doing the same thing everyday to establish patterns of normalcy. Riddle me this, if doing the same thing over and over again without producing any results is the definition of insanity, then the psychiatry industry should have the label of insanity. The people most adaptable to change are the ones who will survive & thrive. Absolutely no one knows what they are doing EVER. They are faking it.
