If you have been reading my crazy blog rants for anytime now, You probably won't be surprised by anything I say or do.
This time you just may be!
Wifey and I have purchased four (4) mattresses in the 27 years we have been married. Each time we spent more money trying to get the most comfortable and best deal we could find. The last one cost more than a thousand ($1,000.00) dollars. It was one of those fancy pillow top monsters that the contour sheets barely fit on. It weighed a ton and was comfortable as hell….At first.
It was a super duper inner spring job from a pretty big name that rhymes with “Mealy”.
The problem is, well, I’m fat. Ok chubby if it makes you more comfortable. After a few years or so I noticed that when laying on this behemoth I was looking up at Wifey. Yes, the mattress was slowly eating me like a fat juicy fly caught in a Venus Fly Trap. We are talking quicksand here. I was sinking into a hole, divot, cavity or crater in the bed! After a few more months it was getting unbearable.
So I turned the mattress 180° one day, now Wifey had the crater to sleep in.
Yeah, you guessed it. That didn’t go over very well.
So we started talking about a new mattress. We were watching a college football bowl game and a short commercial came on for a mattress that you order over the internet. Wifey and I looked at each other and thought how silly that sounded. So we immediately went to their web page.
And we are so glad we did.
I read all their information, looked up all their reviews on Amazon and the internet and was very impressed. A couple recent college grads, just kids really, started a company that was so revolutionary in concept I just had to talk to them.
When I contacted the on-line chat guy who popped up in that annoying little box I was flabbergasted. He “Got” me! I asked him what type of paint I should use Latex or Oil based. He screamed at me that I shouldn’t paint it! I asked him what the capitol of Nevada was and he got that right as well. (Most don’t know it’s Carson City) I think I might have freaked him out a little.
We bought the mattress.
And it’s fucking AWESOME! It has a 100 day guarantee. If you don’t like it they give you your money back. You heard me, they give you your money back. Who else has the balls to offer that? But you won’t want to return it. It is easily the most comfortable mattress we have ever had. Sure we are only two weeks into owning it, but I can tell you that we have never slept as well in our lives.
The price? Well, you can look it up on their web site, but when I went to get a new frame at a mattress store I jumped on a couple of their beds and found that a comparable one was a little over $2,100.00. Yup you read that right, two thousand one hundred bucks. Now that doesn’t really scare me. For the amount of time I sleep on my bed (2,900 hrs per year or more) that’s not a lot of money overall. My new mattress cost less than a third of that!
Check them out on the web. Their name is Tuft & Needle and the address is: http://www.tn.com.
Just go put on your big boy pants, suck it up and order one. Sure it’s scary spending that much money over the internet, but rest assured (cute huh?) we did and we are tickled shitless.
It really is that good.
