"Our Lowest Price Ever!" This is hype, but true. Yesterday their lowest price was $299. With 420 coils, and a firm rating this bed should draw some attention. The warranty is 5 years! And probably covers any dip in excess of 1.75 inches. Manufacturers rarely write warranties they expect to have to perform on. As a result, this manufacturer thinks the mattress should last the average person 5 years. Considering this firm suggests you replace every 8, it doesn't even make it that long. They of course will have a better (more expensive) deal waiting nearby. And their rating at the BBB is F, but they are the largest retailer of mattresses.
Next let's surf on over to our next one. See what we can find there.
This one is scary, huh. No pricing on the main page, but it is the best sale ever! Oh, and they have some cool videos to watch. When we went deeper, their current sale is pretty comparable to last months. And they do have great beds. Graphic hype, but this is one of the better beds available, you get what you pay for. You will not find any $297 Queens here, but you will find beds that are substantially better.
Here's another one. This store sells furniture and mattresses. What do you think?
Here again we see a lot of hype. An extra up to $100 off. But off what? Wow, if we could get that $297 mattress for $100 off, that would be a deal! And it's "factory roll backs". What a deal, well maybe. One of the problem with spring makers is that they have dozens of different models, and rarely can you find the same model from a different store to compare the price, they only true way to know if it is indeed a good deal.
This is another low price store. Wow we have a new low price! $94! That's 50% off! They are so proud of the brand, that they forgot to name it. And, better hurry because there are limited quantities! Which if we translate hypeze means, we bought 2 just to get you in the store and sell you a better, more expensive, brand name model.
As mentioned in other editions, we own a small mattress store in the St. Louis metro area. We try not to hype. We try to be different. All of our beds are on sale, just like these major players, but we won't lead you to believe that they will be gone soon, we will order them for you. Every one of our sales is the best, only because we strive to put the lowest price possible on our great mattresses. And we maintain those prices until the manufacturer increases prices. We constantly have people asking when the sale is over, and we tell them that this sale is available to you until the manufacturer raises prices. That's what we consider value. $94 or $297 or any other price is not value unless it is for a good bed. Instead of a 5 year warranty, ours comes with a 20 year limited warranty, and our manufacturer is rated very high in reviews, and by the BBB (A+), but they do not have a $297 queen bed. However if you are looking for a bed that will last 4 times as long, our queens start at $699. To match the expected longevity is it not logical to take the $297 (for 5 years) and multiply by 4? Would not the value of that $297 over 20 years be $1188? Is $699 less than $1188? Is it also better to not have to go shopping again for a number of years?
And yes, we are having a Labor Day Sale, if you like you can see it here: Hannah's Labor Day Sale. Otherwise, enjoy your holiday and...
