We splurged on Stearns & Foster mattresses and I don't regret it all.

We got the Fairmont Stearns & Foster after stackable BF coupons. Amazing bed.

Do you remember total cost (after all coupons)?

There was a 20% bonus on Fairmont GCs+25% off Fairmont store+2 free down pillows+FS.
Don't recall cost.

I'd love to try it, but that's the problem. I've become spoiled being able to try these bed in box variations risk free, but I'm sure Stearns & Foster (like the W Store) provide no such opportunity. Bummer.

What's FS?

Do you recall if they had this promo the Black Friday before the one you bought? Trying to gauge the likelihood of it coming back for 2018.

What's "BF"?

I had W plush top mattresses for about 8 years and recently went for the Casper (the "Casper"). I find that it feels like sleeping on a foam padding compared to the brighter and more defined support of the W mattress. We're coming up to the end of 90 days and I'm thinking of returning. I bought it (+ sheets and pillows) using a $300 off $1,500 Amex offer on my SPG card, stacked with a 10% off coupon code.

I'm thinking of trying Nectar, a cheaper mattress in a box company. Nectar is not as well rated by Consumer Reports, but they have a 365 day risk-free trial period, so that's tempting.

Black Friday.

We just initiated a return on our Casper Wave.  Debating whether to try 'tipping' the got junk folks to possibly put them in my basement.

I think next I'll try Purple.

None of these beds in a box are going to compare to a traditional mattress.

That's my worry.

Thus far, the Wave, which is supposedly Casper's best effort, didn't come close to my W Store Plush Top (which apparently has been discontinued).

Clearly they're designed differently so collapse and be vacum sealed into a box, but is it necessarily true that there are no sleepers for whom one of the beds in a box will provide a night's rest on par with a traditional mattress?

Thus far, the Wave, which is supposedly Casper's best effort, didn't come close to my W Store Plush Top (which apparently has been discontinued).
I believe Consumer Reports actually rates the "Casper" better than the more expensive "Wave".
