Spent some serious money last night
My own mattress set, while only a few years old, is one that I have not liked. While we got it at a good price, I am very disappointed in the quality, and have found that I am experiencing hip and back pain almost daily after waking up. This is a no go for me. Additionally, as an annoyance factor, this particular brand of mattress sets creeks. We also bought a twin set for one DS at the same time as we bought the replacement set for my bed, and his mattress set is also creeking. Sigh.
My back/hip pain are not something that I can continue to deal with, especially after suffering several weeks of debilitating back pain last Spring. Time to invest.
I looked on line, and as suspected, the company we usually purchase mattresses from is having a sale promotion. Great. DD and I headed out to the local store after supper last night.
The sales clerk was phenomenal. I told her my needs, my price point and with my receipt from DD's mattress set in hand, asked if she could find me a deal, perhaps out of clearance again.
I narrowed my selection down to 2 different companies and told her to work her magic and come up with an out the door price for me, within my budget. I chose one with a 20 year warrenty (current set only had a 1 year. @@)
I got 47.3% off the usual price, saving $1739.99 in the process. I'm out the door @ $1559.99 plus tax, delivery, removal charge (new CT law). $1799.40.
Pricey? yes. Avoiding future back/hip problem? yes.
I am fortunate that I live well below my means and although this is my difficult month, financially, I can absorb this cost.with my savings in the checking account. It was placed on my credit card, which will not be due until Sept 17th. I get paid again on the 15th, so no worries. Meanwhile, I am racking up points to convert in a cash credit on my CC for an upcoming computer purchase for Christmas. It's a win-win.
Delivery is set for tomorrow morning.
