I had to start a chit-chat!! It is time for a new mattress in this house and I would like to know if any of you have a 'sleep number mattress' and if you like it? I would appreciate good suggestions or info before I shop this week. I wonder what number Cicero would be....:pound:

My parents have one. They got it a long time ago before it was called Sleep Number. They love it.

We love ours, we got it because we wanted a King size bed but had no way of getting one up our stairs and the sleep number bed comes in like 6 boxes making it easy to bring up. DH likes his bed on the hard side where I like mine more soft so we both got what we wanted :) Riley & Monte sleep on my side so they are a 35.

I don't have one of those, but I do have a Tempur-pedic, and I can't believe I waited so long to buy one. I LOVE it. I used to have this nagging muscular pain under my shoulder blade. DH got annoyed having to rub the knot out of my back every night. Not any more. It has made a world of difference.

I have two Sleep Number beds. I have a king size in our guest bedroom and
a king size split twin in our bedroom. My husband and I love the beds. I prefer
the king size twin split. We have the massage feature and adjustable beds.
I read in bed alot so I can elevate my twin side for reading. If you every use
a dust ruffle or box ruffle it can be a major project. I bought a box ruffle and cut it. I velcro the box ruffel to the base of the bed. Instead of taking the
bed apart.

Great thread Dale. I too think we are soon due for a new mattress. curious to what people say. Also would like to hear more about the tempurpedics too.

Before we got our Beauty Rest... we tried the sleep number for the :30 day trial. At the time, I didn't feel like it was any better than a regular mattress and I got freaked out having to have my bed plugged in! But since then we have stayed in hotels that had them and I have loved them. I think all hotels should be required to have them...one of my big pet peeves with hotels is that the beds are always rock hard.

O.K. heres one for you. We have the sleep number with a tempurpedic topper. :pound:I got the "bed" situation covered. I love both. In the past 17 years it seems I have ended up in bed on rest for various reasons so it must be comfortable for me. We had a water bed but after 15 years it had to be replaced thus the sleepnumber. BUY it and you won't regret it.

One more voice for the Sleep Number. Tempurdepic is tooooo hot for me and being a "woman of size" I feel like I'm sleeping in bowel of Jello.

I do have an electric bed, as it really stopped acid reflux. So with the Sleep Number on the electric bed, I know what the beds in heaven will be like. I am told I don't snore now, but then it was only heresay that I ever did!

I would buy it again in a minute and I think they're on sale now. The dogs like it too as they like a softer mattress than I do.

Laurie should be on here soon with her input because I know she also has one. She and Dana were praising it at one point last August at National. I am curious about this bed and should look into it. I hear it really helps the aches and pains.

Thanks to everyone for posting!!! I think we will shop this week and decide on which Sleep Number to get. If I understand correctly we can return it within 30 days if we don't like it. I'm sure ready to wake up without an aching back. :)

I had one person tell me they got the tempurpedic bed but when they turned over during the night it took it a while to 'return' and fill up the space at his back so he returned it and got the Sleep Number and loved it. I guess the tempurpedic topper for the sleep number is thinner so it doesn't take it long to retain it's shape. Not sure if I need the topper or not. :frusty:

You can buy the toppers online - I got ours from Overstock - a really good deal!

DH wanted a Sleep Number bed because of all his aches and pains. So, we got one. He can't sleep on it and is back in the guest room! :)

So I'm on the Sleep Number bed and really wish I had my old bed back, which I gave to my son. Cazzie and Chelsie like it though.

Suzy, Thanks for the info and it's nice to see you online! I have already told DH that we are not getting rid of the old mattress till I know I like the sleep number. I think we can return it within 30 days if we don't like it ... I will make sure about that. My aches and pains may just be an age thing ~ but I'm hoping a change will help. We will be shopping this week!

yes, Marj, I finally did see this tread.
We got our bed a few years ago, and it was one of the best investments I ever made - then I convinced Dana to get one too - hehe
I have fibromyalgia as most know, and if is very hard on the pressure points in a normal bed. my number is "35" and I sleep better now than I ever did!!
It was well worth the money for us. the other advantage is that when hubby turns over or I turn over, the other is bounced around & are not woken up!

I also have the sleep number bed with the adjustable feature. I read a lot in bed and I love that feature! My DH prefers his bed soft and by back hurts if I go too soft, so my side is more firm.

I've had my sleep number bed for about 4 years and haven't regretted it one minute.

My parents had the sleep number bed, got rid of it, and now have the tempurpedic. I stay at their house frequently to watch the "tzu crew" while they travel, and have slept on both. Honestly, I don't really like either bed. I know I must be the only goofball out there who thinks this, but I love my cushy pillowtop Serta mattress.

I would recommend you try the sleep number bed without the topper at first. You may discover you don't need it (I don't). Then if you had trouble sleeping, you could add the topper to try it that way. Make sense?

I've tried the Sleep Number bed in the store. I loved it, husband wasn't as impressed. His father works at a mattress store and is encouraging us to try a tempur pedic, but like you, I tend to run hot so am not sure I would like it...

We have one, so do both of my sisters. I really like ours but both of them don't. I too have fibromyalgia and I'm not so sure if it helps with that. We don't have a tempurpedic topper but we have the pillow top. I bought a feather bed to put on it too but DH really hated it so it's in the closet. Guess the kids will use it when they sleep in the theater room with friends.

Let us know what you think Dale, I'd buy it again.

My parents have a sleep number bed. I have slept on it a few times when they were out of town, and I loved it! I too have fibromyalgia and must have a comfy bed to sleep in. We have a Simmons pillowtop- it's ok, but we did have to have it replaced last year (thank goodness for warranties!) because after just a couple years, the areas where we sleep had dipped in and we felt like we were sleeping in holes!

suzyfrtz
03-30-2009, 11:38 AM
Beth, I loved my pillow top bed too. Then we bought a "memory foam" "Swedish bed" (actually, it was made in Detroit) and I loved it. I know many people do not, because once you get in place, it's hard to get out. Call me crazy, but I loved it. Maybe it reminded me of being swaddled in the crib! :)
Probably I should pump up my sleep number. I feel like I'm in a water bed sometimes.

Anyway, keep your old mattress - we all have our own comforts when it comes to nighty-night!

We have been discussing (ok---complaining :) ) at our house about our bed mattress as well. It is funny how this topic came up!

We had an old mattress that we replaced just a year ago. The mattress we have is our first queen size bed ever. We always had a full size. Right at first it was great...but it is less then a year old and I would personally stick it in the salesperson hind end! We can not take it back. :( This was a beautyrest close out model that we got a good deal on,or so we thought-----:frusty: I think we just got snookered as I'm sure a better quality beautyrest would of been great. None the less----words of warning Dale----do not fall for a "closeout" mattress/price. Our mattress is one you do not flip,and it has permanent slopes in it where we sleep and a huge ridge in the middle.YUK.

Before we got this mattress--we were thinking about a temperpedic,but co-workers of my husband's said they had had one and when you sweat,it makes it stink. My husband was scared off by that(I don't even know if it is true)....but my Mom replaced a water bed with a sleep number and she loves it.

We think a sleep number bed will be next when the day comes we get back on our feet.

Please make sure you have a warranty and a reputable place that will stand behind it.:thumb:

I have the temperpedic and love it! I have had it for 5 years or so. It did take me a few weeks to get used to it, but I have a hard time sleeping on anything else now. I use a temperpedic pillow too and it really has helped with my neck and back pains.

My aunt and uncle have the sleep number bed and they love it. My parents have the temperpedic too and they love it.

Julie
03-30-2009, 02:02 PM
Does anyone know cost -wise how the temperpedic and sleep number compare?:ear:

Missy
03-30-2009, 02:04 PM
the one good thing I have heard about the tempurpedics is dust mites can't live in there. Did you know the average mattress doubles in weight over the years because of all the mites and dust in them.

Scooter's Family
03-30-2009, 02:06 PM
Gross Missy!!! TMI! I could have lived quite happily never knowing that!

I do take off the mattress pad, wash it in hot water and vacuum the mattress, I always have. DH accuses me of having OCD but I see nothing wrong with it. I'm just clean!:pound:

LOL Missy! He vacuumed just before the boys and I got home with Murphy because he knew I'd freak out if the house was messy! When I'm stressed I clean and cook so the house was spotless when I left Friday after worrying all day if we were going to get him. I didn't cook because I wanted to be able to leave if/when she said we could come. If I'm worried I feel much more at ease if the house is all in order!
Do you clean and change sheets before you go out of town so you come home to a clean house? (I do!)

LOL Janan, I know just how you feel! Our housekeeper comes on Monday so NOBODY is allowed near my bed when the sheets have just been changed until I get in. Now my youngest son is the same way, he gets so excited when he knows he has clean sheets on his bed. DH thinks we're nuts!

Missy
03-30-2009, 04:01 PM
clean sheets are better than sex! I always take a shower before bed if I have clean sheets... and sometimes I make DH too. Clean sheets are delicious. And yes, I do make the bed before I leave on vacation...LOL. so how do I reconcile letting my boys on the bed after they have been out in the rain? well, never under the covers!

LuvCicero
03-30-2009, 04:38 PM
I think I would like the tempurpedic if it keeps you warmer since I am always cold, but DH burns up and we both turn a lot and I have heard you sink down and it's harder to turn ~ but I think I will check one out. We have enjoyed the Simmons pillow top but it has finally worn out and it's time to replace. I think I would like to set my number just for me since DH likes it firmer. Know my problem? We spoon and "could" sleep on a twin bed :biggrin1: so I'm wondering if the adjusting will help. I will let you know what we decide....and if DH likes sleeping on my softer side. :pound:

Update....
I have been having test run and they have poked and looked at everthing...and I check out great...just still have the chest pains. But...all this has slowed us down on shopping for a mattress. We did finally go today and ordered the sleep number bed and they said it would be about two weeks till it is delivered. I told the guy I can get flossies delivered overnight....lol So give me about 3 weeks and I will let you all know if a sleep number is a good restful night!!

We got one bed from Sears that made me feel like Wilma Flinstone sleeping on a rock so back it went. Then we got their top of the line. It's got silver ions in it to kill bacteria. I don't have a clue how that works but the bed......hm. If I knew of a better bed this one would be back in their store. It's got a 20 year warranty on it so I guess I have time to look around. Laying in the middle of the bed is like laying on a huge lump. Are all kind size beds that way because of the foundation?

Dale-Sorry you're still having chest pain but glad the doc hasn't found anything serious. Aren't you glad you have Cicero to snuggle up with?! :)

Jan-I've never felt a lump in the middle of the bed unless DH is crossing over onto my side! Then I just give him a "gentle" kick and he moves back to his side!

Now I have time to find the stick on velcro for the dust ruffle ~ thanks you two for that tip.

Laurief

Aww - while "spooning" just go to one side of the bed!! :) You will love the fact that when he turns and bounces, that you dont feel it. With Fibromyalgia, I do not sleep well, and am constantly moving, and with the sleep number bed, I do not disturb him, which is great!! And because I dont sleep well, when I do, I like to stay that way, and if he comes to bed late, I dont know it! All three dogs sleep with us, but it does not seem to bother my sleep at all. I hope you really like the bed!!

Laurie, I do like my side since I'm not a middle of the bed person. I told him I guess he will get use to my softer side (and I'm sure he doesn't even know I have one since I've taken to calling him DH...and he is sure it isn't for Dear. He's a mover and jumps in his sleep so it's good news for you to tell me that I may not feel that all during the night. Thanks!!

I found the temper pedic bed today and laid on it. The first 20 minutes were wonderful then the back pain started so that one's out. Where do you find the sleep number beds?
There was an adjustable bed I laid on and the salesperson started up the vibrating part of it. I told her to shut that thing off. If I wanted a bed that did that, I'd let my dogs get fleas again and have it for free. :pound:
The adjustable bed was great with the legs up a little but then I turned on my side and ouch, my back!
This bed shopping is going to drive me to drink. I've been doing it since January and have 2 new king sized beds in my room that I don't like. :frusty:

Jan, check to see where a Select Comfort store is in your area. They are the ones that have the sleep number bed. We also tried the temperpedic and stayed on it a while, but I didn't like it as well as the sleep number. I will post to let everyone know when we get it and then about 10 days later to let you know if I love it or hate it. If we don't like it ~ it will go back. But I can say that just resting on it in the store set on 30, I didn't want to get up and didn't feel pressure on any part of my body!!

Yikes there are a bunch of sleep number beds. What's the difference between a c2, p7, i 10 etc????????? This bed is cheaper than the one we got from Sears that has the hard line down the middle that makes it really tough to curl up in.

I just found out a couple days ago that if your doctor writes you an rx for a bed you don't pay sales tax on it. That's how it is here in Texas but I don't know if it's in other states

I'm very late getting to this thread. The people I know with the SNB love them. I have the Tempor-Pedic and would never change. It has helped my back more than any doctor, chiropractor or medication. My back is a real mess: degenerative disk, arthritis, and 3 fractured vertebrae. When I travel I carry muscle relaxers, pain med and Ambien to make sure I do not have to deal with my back pain and lack of sleep. I don’t like the pills but it beats having a miserable time.

Good luck with your new bed.

I was just telling DH last night that the last few times I've stayed at a Hampton Inn I've slept so well! They have some sort of bed, I think they call it Heavenly Bed, that are so comfortable. Big, fluffy comforters and pillows too! We try to stay at Hilton properties because we get reward points so Hampton Inns fit in there.

For anyone with back problems or trouble sleeping in strange beds, you might want to give it a try. I usually suffer in hotel beds but these have been a pleasant surprise.

LuvCicero
04-26-2009, 01:25 PM
I love Hampton Inn and their beds are great. You can order their 'Cloud 9' bed on their site. It is a good nights sleep.

I should have thought about asking the Doctor for an order since DH has had back surgery...

Jan, I think the different numbers are if you get the adjustable frame to raise your head and feet...or pillowtop...just what extras you want.

I'm excited because I will finally get to hold a remote...and can change DH to any position I want as he sleeps. :pound:

Jan-Hope you find one you like, you'll be like "The Princess and the Pea" and have mattresses stacked to your bedroom ceiling!!!

We checked out the sleep number beds today and liked them in the store however don't know which one to order. We laid on the queen size c 2 because that's where they show you the pressure points with their electronic gizmo. Laying on that thing was unreal. We kept rolling to the middle of the bed and crashing into each other.
The salesman said that's because it doesn't have the topper on it and to go look at the top of the line king size bed they had in the store and try it. I asked for a middle of the line bed and they didn't have one in the store, so top of the line it was to try out.
The salesman said the only difference between the top of the line and the bottom of the line was the thickness of the foam over the air chambers as far as the actual bed goes. Then you have the remote with a cable on it and another remote without a cable and they have one that has a sort of temperpedic top to it to compete with them. Dang that thing hurt my back.
So anyhow, I'm lost. I know I don't want the c2 however he said that we kept rolling to the center of the bed because it was a queen size and not a king size and that a king size had better air chambers where you don't roll to the center. <shrug>
Having the remote ON the cord sounds better to me than a remote without a cord. My husband puts things away and good luck finding them.
Nobody is saying which sleep number bed they have. Please help there. Which one and why?
I just may be a princess and a pea story but let me show you what the new bed we got from Sears is like. This thing is the top of the line and there's this hard and high line right down the middle of the bed. I figured out a way to show Sears what it was doing and will post the pictures here.
Dang I have ugly legs in the pictures so stop laughing or I won't tell you our good news :croc:
Anyhow, look at the top picture. That's my legs laying toward the edge of the bed. See how my knees go down into the bed and are cozy?
Now look at the bottom picture. I turned over and laid the same but with my legs on the middle hard part of the bed. See how my knee goes up in the air and can't even touch the bed? That's how steep of an incline there is with that center hump.

Jan, I think the different numbers are if you get the adjustable frame to raise your head and feet...or pillowtop...just what extras you want. :

The different numbers are different toppers on the beds and different remotes that go with them. There's something like an inch and a half of cushion between the c 2 and the i 10. (or more, I got lost in all the numbers)
http://www.selectcomfort.com/air_mattress_beds/sleep_number_bed.cfm
Can you cancel your order and just be up front with them about wanting to save a couple of hundred dollars and send a doctor's rx with the order to save the sales tax and order it again with the rx? They might be understanding

Dale, Thank you so much for starting this thread. We too are due for a new mattress. Currently, we have a king size twin split, soft side, waterbed with a pillow top, we purchased it 8 years ago. The sides became rounded and it is horrible to sleep on now. Our bed is very high and with the fibromyalgia, I literally have to crawl into bed on all fours, to the middle, so I don't roll off!! We have been looking and looking at reviews of the beds. We went to the store and tried the Sleep number and I was not impressed but can you really judge all the different settings in 15 minutes? And, I love clean sheets!!! That is the ultimate, best way to end a day! My mother used to hang the sheets outside and they smelled so good. I have been asking years for clothes poles so I can do the same. The sun bleaches the whites to be whiter, and less ironing was needed because drying on the line removed a lot of the wrinkles.

I do have a question to the others who have fibromyalgia. I was diagnosed 3 years ago and at that time it was the pressure points that hurted so much, manageable with meds and I would have periods of remission. Lately, my whole body hurts and getting to the point, it is unbearable. Last night I told DH that the only thing that didn't hurt when I went to bed was my little finger and my nose. I wasn't
Exaggerating.
I went back to my doctor, for I am scared, it is something more than fibro, to hurt this dang much with less and less remissions. My whole body has a deep ache to it. And it feels like every bone has a deep hurt. When I first lay down at night I feel this additional, awful wave of pain that starts at my feet and travels up to my head in a matter of seconds,. If you touch me lightly on the back/arm/leg it causes immense pain. If I sit less than five minutes, I become stiff. I can't go up the stairs normally anymore.....one step at a time. Does any one elses hurt this bad, unbelievable pain?

We got the sleep number bed on Sat and have slept in it for 3 nights now and so far "We love it". In fact, I'm surprised we have slept so well since I thought we would have to adjust the numbers more and get use to it.
The first night when I put it on 35 and felt it change and hug every part of my body…raised the head and foot a little…I completely relaxed. Usually it takes me a while to go to sleep…sometimes an hour or so because I'm thinking of 'everything'….and I was only thinking, "Oh, this really feels good and fits everywhere." When I came downstairs the next morning, DH said, "Well, you must really like that bed because you have slept till 10:40!!" WHAT? I looked at the clock and he was right. "What about church…it's Mother's Day." He told me that was why he let me sleep, that evidently I needed to catch up and that the girls and boys would all be here later. I was to shocked to say much. Then I realized my throat was not burning from acid reflux that has been a problem for a year. Oh yes, raising the head of the bed is a good thing!!
Yesterday morning when we got up I happen to think of something. I ask DH if he had gotten up during the night to go to the bathroom and he said he had. It hit me ~~ I had not known that he had moved for 2 nights. I always know when he gets up during the night…."which makes me then get up to go also"…and I knew each time he turned over during the night. I had slept for two nights without waking or feeling him roll or getting up. My back and shoulder wasn't hurting.
This morning…I am feeling better after 3 nights of solid sleep…not waking during the night…really feeling better without the acid reflux that has been bothering me when I went to bed. This morning DH said, "We might have to get rid of this bed because after about 7 hours of solid sleep I wake up and feel like getting out of bed." J I hope we continue to like it. I like getting up without shoulder and hip pain and DH says his back is also feeling much better.
I would recommend that anyone try one….you can sleep on it for a full 30 days and return it if you are not happy. You can't return the adjustable frame but you can the mattress and the frame will work with any other mattress. I can tell anyone with acid reflux that I think you need the adjustable frame!!

He said he wanted to buy a temperpedic and I wanted to see if you wrote about your new bed yet! I am so happy you and DH love it.

Colleen, this bed does have two seperate beds then the pillow top fits on top making it look like one mattress. But the remote changes the right and left mattresses for each person. DH likes his a little firmer and my side is softer. I am really surprised how much better my joints feel after 3 nights and how I don't feel DH turning or getting up...I sleep right on.!! I don't "think" he is snoring with his head raised...but who knows...haha.

Dale & Colleen, I am so glad that you like the bed DAle, I happen to love it, and Colleen, I highly recommend it!! I have fibromyalgia and one of my worst symptoms is my lack of sleep. Since the bed I have slept better than ever. I dont even know when hubby comes to bed or goes to the bathroom. So I dont spend another 1-2 hours a night trying to fall asleep. I figure if I gain 1 hour "falling asleep: and 1-2 "staying asleep" I am in good shape!! I hope that you are able to check it out Colleen and hope you contine to like it Dale.
I cannot even stand for my pups to "stand on me" without pain, and laying in this bed, I have no pain from pressure points!

Laurie, falling asleep so fast is one thing that has shocked me. It has always taken me and hour or so to "get fixed". My hip would hurt so I would wiggle to get in a better position...then move my legs around..then roll to get off my shoulder. The first night I was thinking where is it beginning to hurt...and I wasn't...so I quickly went to sleep. I don't remember waking during the night...for the past 3 nights. That hasn't happen in many years. Yep, Sally...if you are due a new mattress I do recommend the sleep number.

You don't have to buy the adjustable frame. I'm not sure if they use a different frame just for the mattress. My headboard is attached to the frame, but I don't use a footboard.

My headboard and footboard are attached, no problems. We really like the bed and have had it for almost 4 years. The only problem is that it's getting spaces where it's sinking in. When I called they told me to vacuum the pillow top, I did and it helped for a bit but I guess I'm going to have to do it more often since we've had the bed for a while.

Dale-So happy you're getting a good nights rest! IMO, there's nothing better!

We bought a new mattress a few years ago. At the time I was looking at the Sleep Number but DH found reviews that said they lost air during the night and people weren't happy with them. We bought a really expensive mattress that I hate!!! I was wondering if anyone had the problem of them losing air during the night? Also, how does the adjustable bed work? If you each have a separate mattress but one mattress cover, does the cover stretch? What if one person wants to lye flat and the other wants the have there head elevated? I'm seriously thinking about getting a new mattress even thought the old one isn't very old.

My side did lose air once, I woke up in a hole! :laugh: We only had it about a month so they sent us a new air chamber but wanted me to install it. I called their customer service number and told them for what we paid they should do the installation. They agreed to do it and we haven't had a problem with that since. then.

I don't know but it cost a small fortune! It's the king size with dual controls, not cordless or adjustable like Dale's though. We have a pillow top and it's very comfortable but I guess we're going to have to buy a new topper for it from Sleep Number.

I just got off the phone with them and they said body sweat breaks down the topper and to use a good mattress pad. Ha, she even said that people on the internet can say anything bad about their beds and who believes what they read on the net. Yeah, right.
The topper isn't covered under their warranty and the reviews say it's over 600 for a new one and used to be 100.
Found out that Texas and Florida are the only 2 states where you don't pay sales tax with an rx and got one from my dr yesterday.
I'm looking at the 6 but the place that has the beds doesn't even have a 6 to try out. What to do........
The bed we have now is bothering both of us and we feel like the Flinstones sleeping on a rock.....now why won't that smooch down!! If hubby is bothered by a bed, you know something is wrong as that man can sleep anywhere.

The saleman did tell us that if you sweat "a lot" then he recommends you get the waterproof mattress pad. All their mattress pads are nice and thick. We got the P5 mattress and the mattress alone cost $1,699.99 (why don't they just say $1700.00?? :) We paid more than that for our last mattress years ago (Serta) and it has been good...but time for a replacement.

We are loving the bed and sleep so much better without waking during the night. We went to the creek house for two night this week and I woke up both nights and got up to read a while -- and DH woke with a back ache. That mattress also cost more than a sleep number and we are now talking about getting a SN for there. In fact, when we got back yesterday I told DH I was going for a nap at 4:00 and to wake me at 6:00. I came down at 8:00...and he told me that him and Cicero came upstairs at 6 and I was sleeping so well that he didn't want to bother me...lol I never knew they came in the room!! I do feel better getting a solid nights sleep and waking with no pains. Maybe call customer service and ask them if you don't like the P6...would they exchange it for another with no extra charges to cover yourself.


Jan...since you can sent them back after 30 days (and you got the rx) I would go for it and give it a try.

I got a 4" memory foam mattress topper from overstock for a really good price - less than $100, I think. So, it is a lot cheaper to get the one without the pillowtop and get your own topper. That way you can replace it when you need to and a lot cheaper, too.

We tried the queen size C2 (they didn't have a king without a topper) and both of us kept rolling to the middle of the bed. Memory foam isn't my favorite thing and it wears down way too fast for me. I have a couple of their pillows and they aren't going to last long but I was desperate for a contour pillow so off to Kohl's we went and that's the only kind they had. I was happy to find that after looking everywhere else and not finding a contoured pillow so it will have to do.

Did you get the queen? I like their foundation and makes more sense than the standard foundation so I'd get that too. The king 5 is 2399.98 on sale from 2599.98 and the 6 is 2999.98 on sale from 3199.98. Oh.....didn't you get the adjustable? Then you'd just need the mattress
We would have to pay shipping to us and shipping back to them, then shipping another bed to us and it comes in 6 boxes so the price can't be cheap to send it. We really need to move out of Bedrock though so it's looking pretty good

We bought the mattress pad from Select Comfort! I don't know why ours is smushing in like it is. Believe it or not, I never sweat when I'm sleeping, I'm always freezing cold!

Nice bedroom Ann.
They told us that you should buy a king as it has better air chambers (and more money in their pocket as I see the sweat theory didn't hold water)
Actually we tried both the king and queen and found that to be true but that dent.....hmm.

Yes, more so when the dent isn't there though! That was one of the reasons I liked the idea of the Sleep Number, I thought we wouldn't have to deal with the mattress caving in like that. The vacuuming solution worked for a few days and it was wonderful! I guess we're going to have to cave in and buy a new mattress pad.

I wouldn't get the queen unless it has dual air chambers. We had a queen size in a hotel and anytime either of us moved it was like sleeping on an old waterbed, I almost got flipped out of the bed!

***Thanks for the compliment, it's my favorite room in the house! I took down the ceiling fan and had a chandelier put up! Probably the reason DH gets so sweaty and he's ruining our pricey mattress! It's all his fault!:laugh:

Ann, when I ordered my bed today I asked them about your bed. I was told that you should keep calling back until you got a nice person on the phone and for you to remind them of their 20 year warranty and then you'll get a new topper free. I don't know how true that is, but it's what I was told to do if we run into the problem.
Also I was told that if we live in a low humidity area (ha, we have more humidity than Florida here) that the foam can compress and also if you use an air cleaner with the ion gizmo in it that the foam can compress.
I went in to order the i8 and they talked me out of it and into the p5. They said that the foam padding you get varies and you can wind up with anything they put in the bed. They told me the actual difference was in the remote and the material on the bed. I left there totally confused and with almost an extra 1,000 in my pocket.
My gf was with me and she has a plush pillowtop bed yet her sleep number was a 90. I told her she should take my Flinstone Bedrock bed if she likes a bed that hard. She has her eye on the i10. I can just imagine her husband's face if this thing shows up at the door since he spent a mint on the bed they have but with her, you never know :biggrin1:

He said you are only paying for extra stuff you don't need because the p5 is going to be a good nights sleep. I also had a new rock mattress and I gave it to my 15 year old grandson that loved it!!

I haven't been on the forum much lately, but had to respond to this thread when it popped up this morning. WE LOVE OUR Sleep Number Bed from Select Comfort! My shoulder and hip (I sleep on one side) were killing me in our old bed. I thought for sure I had arthritis and needed replacement joints 30 years before my mom got hers! Since getting the bed, all that pain is gone. I have my little "hole" on my side of the bed and have to "climb" up to my DH's side as he likes it a bit firmer than I do, but other than that, the bed is fantastic. We had to get a queen to fit in our room, but I would recommend a king if you have the space and $.

Judy, do you have the 5 also?
My back is so messed up (I'm guessing from the Bedrock bed we have on top of back problems) that when I got out of the Sleep Number bed set on 30 I yelped in pain. The salesman said he does the same thing and to take the bed up to at least 90 and then get out of it. That did help. He said he just got the i8 a couple of weeks ago and wasn't thrilled but does like it.
I'm stumped why they push a cheaper bed....don't they work on commission? The guy did drive me nuts trying to sell me every other product they make though. I was to the point where I was ready to ask him what he didn't understand about the word NO. I just wanted to walk in, order the bed and walk out. HA! I don't think they know how to do that.
It sure would be nice to think of a bed as a welcome place instead of a place that's going to make my back hurt. I'm sleeping 4 hours a night <yawn>

I didn't get the adjustable bed. I tried it out but if the head or feet were up and I turned on my side it hurt my back big time. We got 5 soaked boxes yesterday (had one heck of a storm) and the pieces are sitting in the living room. Since we're expecting more big storms we wanted one heck of a good surge protector on it before it was put up so we went out shopping for one. Hopefully we'll get to try out the bed tonite. Thanks for the good wishes, I hope it helps too!
I posted in another thread that I have almost zip for face recognition. We came out of Office Depot and hubby started talking to people walking up to the store. I wondered who the heck he was talking to but as soon as I heard a voice, I knew it was my neighbors. I talk to the guy at least 5 times a week and didn't even know who he was until he talked. I've been that way for years and years and it's so embarrassing and frustrating! Could you imagine me seeing a crime happen and try to describe the person to the police?

I just hung up with the Select Comfort people. Called and was put on hold for almost 5 minutes before discovering I called the wrong number. He transferred me and after holding again for a few minutes I was cut off. Called back, held, finally spoke with someone. I told her about the sinking in and she told me to vacuum it. Told her I'd done that several times but it only helps for a few days. She said that all pillow tops will conform to your body and all I can do is buy their "chamber lifts" for $20.10 each. Not really pricey but...it's a final sale! I asked her how I'd know if it would work before purchase and she said, "I'm sorry, that's all we can offer to you." Total cost: $49.96.

The customer service lady told me to take the bed apart, not so easy if you've tried it before, remove the air chambers and place the lifts underneath. She told me to vacuum the pillow top often and completely inflate the bed every day. Not sure how inflating it will help but I'm not going to do that every day. Next thing you know the pump will burn out.

The parts will be here in 7-10 days.

My Dyson broke yesterday too. I called them and I have to take it in for service, only had it a little over a year.

If you have the king sized bed with the adjustable option, what happens with the mattress pad when one person wants their head up and the other doesn't? Is it split? Same with fitted sheets? Is it basically just 2 twin mattresses so you would have to buy 2 twin fitted sheets?

I HAVE to find something for my back or give up on sleeping altogether.

Jan, I'm waiting to see how you slept last night ~ are could it be you're still in bed. :)

I'm holding back on my comments about the bed for a couple of days. I will say their customer service on the phone sucks.
I lost track.....someone else on the forum said they got talked into a 5 when they went in to buy an 8. I told them that on the phone and you were called a liar and I was told that people on the internet could say anything. I told them thank you for calling you a liar because you said you loved the 5 and then they had no clue what to say other than their standard line of, "Is there anything else I can help you with?"
I am curious though about the foam that goes above the air chambers...does that squish down to 1/4 of an inch with gentle pressure between your fingers?

I need a vacation. Or a large bottle of Patron.

I don't even know what Patron is but can I go with you and share it? I don't drink but it seems like a good hobby to take up at the moment. Nah, never mind, I never could get drunk so why bother. Phooey
Hubby spent a couple of hours trying to fix my pc while I slept and it's still messed up. That lightning really did a number on it. To use the net I downloaded the new IE. It's weird and going to take some getting used to.....when I can stay online. It sees every website as a threat and shuts it down. Notice no smilies in my posts? That's cause when I click on them I go flying with an error screaming DANGER. Grrrrrrrr I'll show it danger LOL

Jan, It did take me 3 or 4 night to twick my number, but I did sleep great the first night. I hope you will get a restful sleep on this bed. DH put down sod in the back yard yesterday and his back was killing him last night -- and so was mine. We both feel so much better this morning and slept well. I know I would have to pay shipping to send it back after a full 30 days ~ but still get my money back for the bed. I'm not sending this bed back ~ but would suggest anyone do that if they didn't like it after a month. I can honestly say I'm sleeping better on this bed than I have any other bed I've owned. Also, I was the one that said the saleman's told us we only needed the c5 bed, that above that we were only paying for extras we didnt' really need.

Ann, I hope the lifts help, but I wouldn't want to have to take the bed apart either. I would need a bottle of wine before that job...then what would the bed look like. :)

Beverly...here is a picture of a split King bed. I don't know how it would be since picture is a little hard to see....but it does look like two twin sets. Don't know how hard that would be to make up. We don't like King and they didn't have one in the store to look at.

Opening the bed is pretty easy. Just pull up one corner of the sheet near the zipper and you can check the foam. I'm curious if everyone who has the bed can use very gentle pressure and press it between 2 fingers and have 1/4 inch of foam when they do that?

I'm bad with names, faces I remember. It's so embarrassing because I'll know someone for months and realize I have no idea what their name is!

Hubby can't remember names, I can't remember faces but can remember names (usually as long as I've heard it a couple of times). When we first got married I used to rant my ears off when we'd run into someone he knew and he wouldn't introduce them to me while they talked. I thought that was so rude then found out it was because he couldn't remember their name and wasn't going to tell them that. I've gotten used to it over the years and just stick my hand out and say hi, I'm Jan, nice to meet you and then they tell me their name so hubby knows it too. LOL it works for us

Jan: I'll check my foam on Monday when I change the sheets.

Ann: What do chamber lifts look like? Our bed is over twelve years old so they've made a lot of improvements and *huge* price increases since we got ours. Right now it is higher on the sides and I seem to roll toward the middle in it. Maybe chamber lifts would help that problem? It would sure be cheaper than a new bed!

05-30-2009, 04:14 PM
I don't know Kathie. I talked with a person on the phone who wasn't really anxious to help me. The lifts seem to be the only option and they're non-returnable which really made me mad. I asked her what I should do with them if they didn't improve the mattress. Her reply, "I'm sorry but this is all I can offer you." That makes me think they've had lots of others calling with the same problems.

We went to the Sleep Number store today and the salesman gave me the CEO's email address. I haven't tried it yet to see if it's accurate. We talked to the salesman about our bed and he was a nice guy, quite unlike the people you get on the phone. Even he said you get idiots on the phone when you call their number. Anyhow, it feels like we're sleeping on a 50.00 blow up camping mattress and it just didn't make sense after trying out the bed at the store. The salesman opened the 5 bed that everyone tries out so it's had plenty of use and showed me the foam in it. That's the picture on the left (taken with my phone so the difference in clarity). See how thick that foam is? Now look at the picture on the right. That's the foam we got with the bed. Huge difference. He did offer to sell me a 400.00 mattress pad to make up the difference in thickness though. Gee, we said no. They also lost sales while we were there for some strange reason.

Jan, that is a huge difference! I will check our when I change the sheets and then go to the store to check the bed I tried out. I will tell you I am loving my bed and sleep great. What bothers me is that it might not last as long as it should with the thicker foam. This might be the reason Ann has the sinking problem. If they are using different foam in the store than what they are selling to people....it will be a reason to call the TV station!!

I posted in another thread that I have almost zip for face recognition. We came out of Office Depot and hubby started talking to people walking up to the store. I wondered who the heck he was talking to but as soon as I heard a voice, I knew it was my neighbors. I talk to the guy at least 5 times a week and didn't even know who he was until he talked. I've been that way for years and years and it's so embarrassing and frustrating! Could you imagine me seeing a crime happen and try to describe the person to the police? They'd be after the wroooooooooong person when I got done describing them!

Jan, I suffer from the same thing and it is so embarrassing to say the least. At a high school football game I saw a man whose face was driving me crazy for I knew I knew him. I said to DH "gee that guy looks familiar to me" and he replied "yes, he is the fellow who has replaced the pastor for the last 4 sermons”. Two weeks later, we were in Kroger’s and I said to DH "Gee, I know that man, but no clue where from" DH growls like an old bear and politely tells me "he should look familiar for he is the guy you didn’t remember who he was at the football game. Who happens to be the same man who has been our pastor for the past 6 weeks.” So Jan you are not alone and I get really embarrassed too, however, I can’t remember names either!! Cripe, anymore I can watch a movie twice and not know it until the very end of the story and everyone looks at me like I am nuts when I say “hey, I saw this before!! The only good thing about not remembering is; It’s cheaper than wine! :doh:

Good luck with your bed!

[COLOR=#5f5f5f][FONT=Verdana]Jan, I suffer from the same thing and it is so embarrassing to say the least.]

Colleen thank you for talking about that. I don't feel so alone now. I wonder why that happens? I know it's not because I'm getting older since I was like that at least back in my mid 20's that I remember and who knows, maybe before that.
When hurricane Andrew hit our area, our house was about 3 or 4 months old. There was repair work the builder had to have done.....just minor stuff and one of the things was they scratched the garden tub while taking it through the upstairs window. No big deal, a guy came out and fixed it...nice guy.
Anyhow, then we took off when Andrew was headed at us after going through Florida and went north. Seems a lot of people that lived near us had the same idea. Anyhow, we were eating at a restaurant and my daughter who lived with us then said to look at the table next to us and see who was there. I had no clue. She said he was the man who fixed the scratch in the tub so I asked him if he did that work. Yup, it was him. <duh>

Jan, when I saw the difference in the foam, I knew you were going to be steaming. I noticed you posted the above late last night...or early morning ~ and you probably didn't sleep much after seeing the difference. Your foam looks more like an egg crate mattress topper to me. Does yours have the wavy pattern or is it peaks all over? Could they have "maybe" sent you the wrong model bed??? The foam is suppose to be 2 inches thick according to their website.

Now...I like my bed...but I hate false advertising (lying) and I've read and checked out their site. If you click on 'features' on the p5 bed it states and shows with a picture that the bed measures 11 inches thick. Well....mine only measures 8 inches from cord to cord like the picture shows their marks. SO, even if I added an inch for good measure...I can't get the 11 inch thickness that they advertise. Now, I'm mad. :)

My remote is quite. I can hear the click as it ends but softly. I wonder if you carried yours to the store if it would work on their bed...I bet it would. You need to try that to let the saleman hear for himself and hopefully replace it. I am so sorry your are having problems -- and I would be upset also if the foam is not like on the bed in the store!! Now ~ measure your bed and tell me how thick it is also, please.

I can't blame you for being upset with them for lying but I'd LOVE to have the foam you do! I'd be jumping for joy.
I called and talked to someone about 'buying a new bed from them' and told them I was looking online at the pictures people were posting about the foam they have and some have nice thick foam and one person had really thin egg crate foam. She told me they discontinued the thin egg crate foam 2 years ago and all foam sold now is the Introlux (sp?) thick stuff.
Then I told her I just bought a bed and got the egg crate stuff. She said I should have been told I was getting a discontinued bed and to talk to customer service. I hung up instead. I've got something else on my mind to deal with today....my poodle. Think good thoughts for her pretty please

They'll put the charge on hold until the conflict is resolved. Follow it up with a letter either via snail or e-mail but keep copies. THIS WILL COST THEM MONEY AND THEY'LL RESOLVE IT FASTER.

I learned to put things on credit cards because of things like this however I'm not sure about this one. I used one of those checks the credit card company sends you with no interest charges if you use it. Since it goes on my credit card you'd think they'd dispute it and take it off.
When I got through to a person she said to fax the zip code of the person who just bought a bed right before I did and their last name along with pictures of their foam and ours to them. I'll see what they do after that and if they say tough, I'll call my credit card company.
BTW, you can't dispute charges on your credit card if you use it outside of the USA unless you go back to the country and deal with them first......or at least that's how it used to be. I bought a nice leather coat out of the country and had them write the amount in both dollars and their currency that they were charging me on the credit card receipt and when it went through the charge was something like double. I talked to the cc company and they told me the above. I told them to keep their credit card, paid it off, and closed the account. That's how it used to be, but not sure if they've changed it.

Maybe later. I have a splitting headache from the bed and worrying about my poodle. Hubby just took her and her urine sample to the vet. If they don't cover it, we know how to picket a place. We had to do that with a couch we bought. The pieces didn't match and Levitz wouldn't do anything about it until we parked the car right in front of their door in a parking space with a huge sign on it saying that they didn't back what they sell. They threatened to call the police to get us out of there, I told them talk to Sgt. so and so (can't remember the name) because he knew we were going to be there and told us how to do it legally.

Beds Return & Exchange Policy
We hope you are completely satisfied with your Sleep Number bed, but if you decide to exchange or return the bed after the 30 Night In-Home Trial, call Customer Service at 1-888-580-9237 before packing your bed. You may exchange your mattress or foundation one time within the 30-Night In-Home Trial period, or 45 days after your bed's delivery*. Exchanges between sizes and models (i.e. from Queen to King or from a Sleep Number c4 bed to a Sleep Number p5 bed) will be processed as whole bed exchanges. You will be responsible for any difference in price as well as shipping charges of the initial bed back to Select Comfort.

Pay him back. Do what my ex did to me. Set up a court date months in advance on his birthday. Or set one up when you know he'll be on vacation

This is the second time he hasn't shown up, the first time he went to the ER and claimed he was sick. And he and his now-wife have dodged subpoenas in the past too. Won't pick up registered mail, claim they don't get regular mail, live behind a gate and send their pit bull/boxer dog out if anyone they don't know is at the gate. Really nice people.

Swell, those people are nutty. DH doesn't want to mess with it until this weekend.

That's one word for them. Hubby measured our mattress. We fall 3 inches short of their claimed 11 inch thick mattress. Gee, could it be because they sent egg crate junk for foam? Oh and read the fine print. If there's a tiny stain on the bed they won't take it back. That's probably why they won't take it back for at least 30 days, hoping you'll sleep with your mouth open or spill something on it. Hubby is going to email the CEO if in fact we were given his accurate email address. He's also getting in touch with the BBB. I've had it. I can't take these headaches that are almost migraine pain from fighting with them.

If you have all of that documented the judge may throw out his request but I doubt it. My ex quit working to avoid paying child support and I didn't even ask for it until 13 years after I divorced him. He was on his feet by then and buying everything under the sun for himself and not anything for the kids so that's when I got ticked. Well, that plus my daughter was injured and taken to the ER from school. They thought she broke her back and she was scared. She said she wanted to see her daddy so I called him and told him what happened to her. He refused to see her saying it was a ploy to get child support from him. I told him I'd give him the number of the doctor and he could verify it, he refused. I had no clue he would ever do that and unfortunately my daughter was right there and heard the call.

Gosh, Jan, I am disappointed in Select Comfort's customer service in dealing with making you a happy customer and taking care of a problem that they created by sending you foam that was discontinue. Now they want to say I got the wrong foam. Well, I can tell you my warrenty will be good if I even need to use it. I am glad your DH is going to write the CEO and I hope he makes it clear what he expects them to do. I have a relative that works for the Atlanta Journal and I am thinking about contacting him to see about getting an article written up on them not knowing how to use a tape measure...lol I am upset that you are not getting a chance to see if this bed will help with your pain.

Ann...it sounds like you were married to my ex-SIL...some fathers are heartless, selfish people!! His child support is taken from his pay check by court order and deposited into my daughter's account....but medical bills have piled up for years with two boys in sports. The good thing is that the boys have come to 'know' their father without anyone having to say a harm word!

Years ago I had a client that kept talking about her divorce. She had been in the process of getting one for FIVE years and wasn't going to stop until she found all of his hidden assets. That seemed nuts to me but then she told me what company he started and it's one we all know of and shop at for house improvement.

I sent everything to Chase. The pictures of the different foam, the consumer website with all the complaints, the calls to them and I forget what else. I would have been happy if they just changed the foam but after reading the consumer reports I don't think I would have stayed very happy.
Sounds to me like a class action suit should be started and run them right out of business for messing over so many people

Jan, I was shocked at the number of complaints at the website you showed! Now, I'm just waiting for something bad to happen to ours! Luckily, we have gotten probably 12 or 13 years out of both of ours but it sounds to me like they need to honor their warranties or be run out of the business. I took pictures yesterday and everything looks pretty good on one bed but one of the beds didn't have any foam on top of the air chambers - just thick pieces around the perimeter of the chambers. I didn't notice any mold but at that time I wasn't looking for it since I just now heard about that problem.

I sure hope you get some satisfaction from them or I would be picketing the store, too!
I'd help but we don't even have a store where I live!

I am following this discussion because I like to learn more about this bed, but boy Jan, you are going through a roller coaster ride with the company! I feel for you. What I can't accept, is that after 2, 3 years or even after 6 or 7 years, the bed might change, you'll have to get additional support/chambers, etc,.. and that is after paying $3000 and more for it?!! Yikes. That makes for expensive sleeping!!!!!

I was at our Sleep Number store at the mall yesterday to try out beds. I loved the feel of them. I had convinced myself to get the P5 after reading the forum and their website, but after laying on the p7, with the special foam, I have to admit, I loved the feeling of that! I also laid on the bed with the "cooling" layer foam feature, I can't remember the number or name, it had a heavy pillow top, but it DID give a cooling feeling to it. The salesman told me that they now are making mattress covers, ,sheets, pillows, everything out of that special material that cools you, then supposedly releases heat back to you if needed...that part I'm not sure about, but it DID give me a cooling feeling.
I've always slept on down pillows, originally fresh from my grandmothers farm, I tried their pillows and I loved those too.
I asked about the foam and the p5 had 2 inches of wavy foam that looked like Dales. The pillow top cooling bed had 3 inches.
The salesman realized I had some prior knowledge of the beds, but was very forthcoming with the information about not being able to return the frame for the adjustable bed and that the parts are pro-rated for repairs with the warranty for the 20 years.
I think he would still be talking if I wouldn't have left the store.:blah:

I have to admit, I've tasted the Kool-aide and I LIKE it!

I was back at the Sleep Number bed store today. Imagine the glee on the salesmans face when he saw me walk in! He happily greeted me, "Hello Beverly, great to see you again so soon!".

Yes, I was back to buy a bed, actually two beds...2 DOG beds! That's right, when I was there yesterday I spoted a couple Sleep Number beds for dogs sitting in the corner with a 75% off sign on them covered with snowflakes. I couldn't stop thinking about the bed, so I went back today and got one for my kids and one for the HRI auction! So if you want to have a Sleep Number bed for your very own special Hav, now you have another reason to come to Chicago!

I figure now when I do get my own bed, I'll have an extra little pump when mine goes out! :laugh:

Of course I had to include photos!

and there's the evil little blue piece of plastic, just because in the first picture!

My credit card company (Chase) called me back and asked for the phone number to Sleep Number. Since I wrote one of their credit card checks they won't dispute the charge however they will make a call to the company on my behalf.
Beverly I hope you don't get the foam I got that they discontinued 2 years ago.
Check out the price on their mattress cover. With a discount, it's 400.00 and good luck with customer service if you ever need them.
You have 45 days to return the bed and must keep it 30 days before they'll even take it back. I can't even send the darn thing back until the 22nd and gee, that's the week I was supposed to be on vacation laying by a pool. I cannot tell you how much I dislike that company. i'm very close to getting an attny at this point and I frankly don't care if it costs me more than the bed did. I am so sick of dealing with this company that it would be worth the stress relief.

What a fight we've had with beds! The first new one I got in January was BedROCK, the second was the top of the line at Sears and had a huge lump in the middle. When they came to pick it up we found out why....the 2 foundations under the mattress were different heights! Then the sleep number bed with egg crate foam. I haven't even had a chance to get dressed today because I've been working on this. Ah well, I don't feel like doing much anyhow with an ear infection but still, this isn't a fun way to spend a day.

So far I haven't nailed her down about the foam. She's offering new foam that's 3 inches thick. I sent a picture of your foam and said that I'd love to keep the bed if this was the foam she was sending. I just got an email back saying here's the shipping information and what you need to send your foam back when you get the new foam BUT didn't verify that it's like yours. So I just emailed her again.

HOLY SMOKE, I had not kept up with this thread since I posted about my tempur-pedic. I really did not want to want a new bed. Today I checked to see how many things can be said about a bed. One of the girls in my office had a terrible time with this company several years ago, but everyone here seemed so happy

Jan, don’t let their promise of new form delay your return. Is the new form in writing? If you go past your return dates you are done. I bet the reason they talked you out of the 8 for the 5 was the sales people got a bonus for selling the 5 in stock at that time. Seen this happen many times.

Ann, anything on the court ruling with your ex?

We had a high end Sealy mattress that caved in on both sides. Macy’s sent out a rep who said it had to be almost 9’’ deviation before they would do anything and we should flip this king size mattress every 2 WEEKS!!! Getting up was like crawling out of a hole every morning. After weeks of dealing with the company & Macy’s I gave up. Most mattress companies return policy is crap.

To defend the TP, it is hard to turn over at first because you are used to springs or chambers that fill in the void of your body while turning. I am so hot natured and this bed does not hold heat, it does hug your body. No mattress is right for all and the TP may not be perfect but I have had this one for several years and see no wear at all and get up feeling great.

I hope all works out for everyone.

They pushed the 5 on a couple of us that I know of so there has to be something in it for the salesperson. What you say makes sense.

Ask the clerk about writing a letter to the judge, reminding him of the history of this event and what it has cost you., no finger pointing, no criticizing just the facts as they have been presented to the judge already.

Ann, Well at least something is happening. I have very little experience with attorneys except on the real estate end and it is always a flat fee for their cost. If your attorney has to be prompted to get the results, maybe you should have a talk with him and tell he to start earning his pay. If I got paid that way I wouldn’t care if I got results or not, just bill the client another $50 or $100. Sort of like doctors try this and come back next week.

I finally got an answer about the foam. It's supposed to be the dense foam you guys have and not another egg crate pancake.
Oh I hope I like the bed! I'm so worn out from fighting since January about different beds!

Yeah!!! I hope you LOVE the bed Jan!!!

My salesman called me tonight...sure, I gave him my number, I'm good at saying "no" when I don't want to talk...they're having a fathers day sale and he thought of me :D
When you buy a P6 or higher, plus get the adjustable frame, you get $1000 off. I actually DID like the P7, I'm just trying to figure out if it's the same as the P5 with the special foam top.
So confusing!

Jan, I'm so tired because I too have a ton of back problems, so it hurts to lay down and so I have trouble getting real sleep.:ranger:

I'm waiting to hear how much you love your bed and how great you feel and maybe that will be the final push I need to just hand over the plastic.

Isn't the p7 the one you can't return and can only upgrade if you don't like it? That's how it was when I bought my bed. I thought the p7 was the one with the temperpedic top but could be wrong. Let me go look......
They took off the you can't return the bed part but it is the one with the TP top so go lay on a TP bed before you buy it. My back can't take the TP but some love it.
At the store I laid on the p7 and said OUCH and the salesman said everyone said that but they were losing sales to TP so they made that one.
Don't expect the bed you lay on in the store to feel like what you get but so many love the sleep number bed that I wouldn't let that stop me as long as you get the right foam and it's right for your body.
Duh, I forgot to add what they say about the p 7.....You and your sleeping partner can enjoy the feel of slow-response memory foam without compromising on the freedom to personalize your comfort on each side of the bed.

06-13-2009, 01:36 AM
Yup,

That's the one that felt the very best to me.

I didn't tell the salesman that, trying to be sneaky or something I guess :crazy: and I have no idea what the slow response memory foam is suppose to feel like, I just liked it!

I really liked the P5, with my feet and head both slightly elevated, it was heaven. Then when I laid on the P7 I liked the feel of that even better. I didn't like the pillowtop one at all, not sure what the number was of it. It had the special membrane for cooling.

For the $700 or so difference in the P5 and P7, would it be better to get a TP mattress topper? Is there such a thing? Is that what people were referring to when they were talking about mattress pads and not a regular mattress pad? ohhhh now I'm starting to understand your pain Jan!

LOL I feel my pain too :) I feel really bad for you not getting good sleep. How long did you lay on the bed? I'd lay on the bed for at least a half hour and tell the salesman not to bug you while you're doing it. The p 7 didn't start hurting my back until after about 20 minutes....but remember some love that type of bed. I have a memory foam pillow from Kohls and it compresses so that I have to buy a new one each month, and dang, they aren't cheap.
I don't know about a TP mattress topper but their plain mattress pad is over 400 and didn't make me twirl my fnger with joy.
I tried out the adjustable bed and it felt great as long as I laid on my back. When I turned on my side I yelped. If you sleep on your back it could be great for you but I'm a side sleeper most of the time and every now and then sleep on my back.

BeverlyA
06-13-2009, 01:54 AM
I certainly wasn't on it for 30 minutes. I'll be back there before I make any decisions that's for sure.

I used to only sleep on my side, now after my massive breast reduction I've found sleeping on my stomach my back doesn't hurt as bad in the morning. If I'm really comfortable I can sleep on my back. The degree of angle was really slight, I'd say barely visable, but I could sure feel it. I can sleep in a hospital bed on my side with both the feet and the head way up...maybe it has something to do with the meds they have there!

Off to give it a shot for tonight! Sweet dreams!

Beverly

With as much money as you're going to spend, it's worth the half hour to go lay on the bed. Wow, you can sleep on a hospital bed? I hurt BIG TIME on them but the nurses say everyone complans about them so maybe they have lousy mattresses here.
I didn't know you had a reduction. My husband's cousin was a MM and had one done. She was supposed to go down to a C cup but they goofed and gave her a D. We used to giggle when she'd come over. We'd sit at the kitchen table and her chest would go to almost the center of the table. She really had to reach to get to food!
Sending you good wishes that you find the right bed for you. Hugs

Jan, I keep checking in here hoping HOPING to read you have a new bed and have had a great nights sleep... did I read right? did you win and you have a new bed coming? PLEASE let that be so!

Beverly, I hope you get a good nights sleep too on what ever bed you end up with...I will be curious for your review. Cooper is the king!

Missy you're a sweetheart. The foam was the only bad part of the bed and the rep I was emailing with said that they'd send me new foam that's dense like others have. She says it's 3 inches thick and they're sending a prepaid sticker to send my egg crate back. That was yesterday that we agreed so I guess it will be a week before it gets here.
I got to sleep at 6 this morning and woke up an hour later when hubby got up then took a nap. <yawn> A comfortable bed sounds wonderful!

Jan, I'm so happy they are sending you the better foam...which they should have already done! I do hope it will give you a good night's sleep. My youngest grandson flips and flops and kicks all during the night and nobody wants to sleep with him. He is 9 and weighs 76 lbs. He has spent the last few nights with me and sets his number on 20...and loves his little nest. I have not felt him move at all and he looks as if he hasn't when I wake! He is begging for his own sleep number bed now. :)

Breathe Missy!! :) It doesn't get here for 2 more days
Grandkids......a money pit of love :) I don't have any expectations for this foam so if we are comfortable it will be a huge bonus! I guess I still have the thought of how that egg crate felt on my back, legs, etc LOL

We got the replacement foam today. Those sweet people at Sleep Number replaced the dinky egg crate foam with..........more dinky egg crate foam! Unless that stuff expands big time I'd like to find their rep and show them where that foam should be placed if they'd be so kind as to bend over for me.

OMG...I can't believe they sent you the same foam you have been complaining to them about. I would call them and tell them in three days you are e-mailing pictures and a request for a TV reporter to check into their service....so they had better overnight you the right foam. I think you really got a lemon. I am getting good sleep and never wake during the night any longer. I am so sorry you have had such a problem. :(

I looked at the foam we got yesterday and it's already falling apart! The middle section where your back or hip goes is all breaking off. This would be funny if it wasn't so crazy. What the heck is wrong with those Sleep Number Bed people? I don't know if this stuff is old and rotted or new and horrible quality. Any ideas?

Oh Jan!

Can you call and speak with someone else...request a manager. do you have a store near by...I would storm in and make a scene in the store and make them do the run around for you... and call this tv reporter...maybe he can do all the work while you are on vacation.

Now I am wondering if the one I tried so many years back was a defective model too and that is why it felt no different than my beauty rest.

I just got an email back from Sleep Number. She says it could be a problem with the manufacturer, she doesn't know. Well then who the heck does know!!! I also updated my website about the bed asking for people who have had problems to contact me for a class action lawsuit....and sent that to the main office at Sleep Number
It could be that you laid on the trash we got.

Here's the foam they sent me, we opened the box and it was all rolled up. The instructions said to unroll it and let it sit for 20 minutes to reach "maximum fullness". I'm thinking Sleep Number needs Viagra or something.

We put it in there, underneath the air chambers, and we'll see how we sleep tonight.

Ann, If you put it on your credit card stop payment. This is crazy that this company is so irresponsible.

Jan, I would take that form to the store where I bought your bed, be nice and have them get their field rep on the line. If they do not want to help sit in front of that store with the insert so the world can see how they treat customers…….or make a poster with your bed, what the web site says you are getting and a hand out to read before buying.

We have a solid foam on top of the air chambers and then we have the pillow top. When we were pulling the whole thing apart to put this foam under the chambers DH said we're going to use the #$%^(*& bed for as long as we can and then buy a normal bed!

They're in the process of moving so we'll go back when they reopen across the street (which will be easier to talk to people going into the store as this one is in a mall). We already spent time in the store and told people about our bed and watched them turn and walk out the door. What a good feeling!
