Mattress

Any mattress salesman? It seems like there is a huge mark-up on Mattresses. Which one would you recommend? The local mattress salesman had my woman convinced she needs to buy a $2999 mattress.

Ask Perry.

Try Ikea. I was surprised too (King size Firm).

Most mattresses are marked up double or triple the actual cost. Find a place that will deal or find a guy that will order you one at his cost for a little cash on the side.

We've got a really nice pillow top queen my parents gave us a few years ago after only having it a couple of years.

It used to be really comfortable, but now it has giant dips in both sides of it that fuck with my back at night and it being a pillow top like 99% of everything else on the market now, I can't flip it over to try and even it out.

Ya know.. Buying a mattress is a similar affair to buying a damn car.
