The experience of exchanging a mattress with Sleepy's Comfort Guarantee.

I was sold a Stearnes & Foster as I asked for my salesman's card and tried to leave the showroom, saying that I'd think it over and call the next day--would the offer be good and valid (it would be), could we get the bed shipped within x days (he called to verify--it could), would I pay shipping (no), would i buy a mattress protector (no, and we would rather have $100 off, will said, and he got it.), and in the end, through my groaning and haggling and the impending hurricane and the pain in my dear hubby's back, and his willingness to settle in the face of my readyness to leave, the price came down to $1650, tax included, delivery on thursday (we'd pay the second half and schedule delivery from the website), and a sleepy's Comfort Guarantee. He'd had to call the office a few times during the conversation to secure various discounts. As we all agreed and sort of sealed the deal, exhausted and happy to have finally come to conclusion, the salesman drew up the ticket. In the end, he mentioned that so he and his partner could get some commission (they worked as a team), he'd be throwing in a mattress protector as his gift to me.

Our invoice said:

Tax $107 Shipping $99 Mattress Protector $99 Mattress+Boxspring $1342.99 ----- $1649.99

The invoice was weird, but we signed off and paid.

The most comfortable mattress in the store was too weak to comfortably bear our combined weight, and a deep pool created in the center caused my back to hurt in the mornings and have trouble sleeping at night. I knew I needed a firm bed, and all sources assure me that the best supportive memory foam is still Tempurpedic. The TEMPURCloud Series, which compares similarly (i.e., both belong to the "best" category, according to Sleepy's grading system) to my Stearnes & Foster Europlush, and happens to be only $190 difference in "Sleepy's Everyday Prices."

So for comparison's sake, here's the pricing for the Tempu Cloud: $2099 List (website and local store) *$1899 Sleepy's Everyday Low Price (website and local store)

And my Stearnes and Foster: $1999 List $1709 Sleepy's Everyday Low Price

No amount of asking has helped them to budge, citing a "Minimum Actual Price" that is enforced by TempurPedic. As a result, they've ushered me into a less expensive latex and memory foam mattress, one in the "better" category with warranty for just ten years and made in China perhaps, as the salesman told us. So be it then, but now they say even this mattress "Sleep Options Memory Foam 11-inch" (currently available at Wal-mart for $758, plus $150 for box) is unavailable until mid-Jnuary! I'm not inclined to wait, as it says we have only 28 days to wrap up an exchange.

Anyone have any advice?
