For the last 15 years I've slept on the same mattress: the cheapest queen size mattress available. It's been fine, but now my wife wants something better. So I was thinking that for Christmas I would give her a gift certificate to some mattress store.

I'm a cheap bastard, so I'm trying to learn what middle-of-the-road mattresses go for these days.

Anybody bought a mattress lately?

We bought one recently, a year back. Costed us $1000/-.
Queen Size, Mattress + BedFrame + (Upgrade :roll: )Stand + Free Delivery.

Generally, I consider Mid range from 500/- to 800/-. There are mattresses advertized of 380+ also, but its 'limited' - you know the deals kinda like when Mars aligns with Mercury and its midnight of a wet freezing sunday but not close to a monday!!! Yup, that exact moment of time you get the ONE mattress thats on sale.

Now I am planning to get one (if I find a deal), not the regular type but a flat bed and matress, the one like Futon Factory makes.

We went to a Sams's club and bought one of those "memory foam mattress pad topper" things. it's about 2 inches thick, and is actually quite nice. i think it cost around $60, so you could buy TWO, have the benefits of a nicer mattress, and STILL be a cheap bastard!!!
