After a short while I found myself following his command as I sat on the other side of the mattress, I leaned back and threw my feet up on the bed, a few minutes of rolling from side to side and bouncing my hips around, I began to feel really uncomfortable with this one.
I sat upright and grabbed my hat, he asked me “are you sure you don’t want to try a firm one” I told him that I already had a firm one and my wife really didn’t like it anymore.

I was introduced to extra soft firm luxury pillow top individually wrapped coil spring cool touch visco latex memory foam mattresses that raise up, lay flat, pump up, and reach so deep into your pocket that you know sleeping on one is not a good option.
I know what I want to buy, and after visiting a high dollar mattress store Cindy and I now know that our numbers are the same, so why not just buy a mattress that feels good, rather than one you have to adjust, I think this will be more cost effective in the long run.
One salesman was so intent on us making a decision “right now” he had a price that we had to agree on right away before he changed his mind, “I’ll even finance any mattress in the store for three years, and deliver it for no charge” this is my out the door price he said, heck I’ve bought cars for less money than this so out the door I went.
How about the “Bargain Mattresses” you know the ones in back of the store? “I’ll make you a good deal on any of these “Floor Models”, so all of these were displays from the floor we asked.
Most of these were mattresses people returned after a 180 day trial period, they just didn’t like them, we do sanitize each one that is brought back he told us, so out the door we went again.
There was another salesman who wanted to make a sale so bad that he tried to show Cindy how good his bed was, Cindy was lying back trying to get the feel of a particular mattress when I swear this salesman came running from across the aisle.
You would have thought he was an Olympic high diver, I was looking for him to do a couple of flips and to go head first through the mattress, but he landed smoothly right beside her.
She didn’t budge an inch from his landing, but by the wide-eyed look on her face as she was jumping off the bed; I knew we were on our way out the door.
Decisions had to be made, do I buy the one that is almost in our price range with a good warranty, or do I spring a little bit out of our range for one that feels absolutely great, and comes with an excellent warranty and free stuff.
Today I found myself crawling back onto a mattress, and looking into the eyes of a salesman who actually got his hand deep into my pocket.
Soon a delivery truck will arrive at our house and when I crawl into bed that night I will find that it is no longer firm.
Soft, Medium, Firm, or Foam, which mattress do you prefer, and do you research and shop around like this, or just grab and go?
