Beauty Sleep {How We Saved an Extra $80 on Our Mattress}

I hate the creepy commercial that shows all the nasty mites and dead skin that is now hiding in my  “greater than 8” year-old mattress.  Ewwww!  Plus our king size mattress is so old that is it no longer comfy.  I will actually ache when I get up in the morning. 

After kicking around the idea and putting it off and then thinking about it again, I read where we could shop at Sam’s Club from May 2-4, 2014 without needing a membership.  (We had one, but it is now expired.)  So, off to Sam’s we drove.

Picking a mattress at Sam’s didn’t take any time at all (because, let’s face it, there is not much selection.)  We actually decided on the lower priced pillow top.  Turns out there is a 10-year warranty on the mattress … and we can return it at any time.  We thought about the mattress as we walked along the store’s back wall … and came upon another mattress.  It had the same number … but it ended in “C” instead of “A”.  The other difference?  This mattress came with a price tag of $449 instead of $529!  An employee said it’s basically the same bed … but last year’s model.  Yo!  I’m fine with that!

So we walked out of Sam’s without having to buy a membership, saved $80 on the mattress we needed … and can return it in the next 10 years if we hate it!
