We took delivery yesterday of our Stearns & Foster Berkeley Square King Plush Firm Tight Top mattress. It was a Demo unit, saving us $300 off a new one, but costing us 7 of an otherwise 10-year warranty. We thought it was an okay trade-off as my understanding of mattress warranties is that the companies do their level best to invalidate them.
We bought it at Mattress Giant in Tarpon Springs two weeks ago. With the clearance Simmons foundations (and free delivery), it all came to about $960.
The mattress arrived looking pristine. The tag said it was manufactured in, get ready for this, May 2010. That’s two months ago! I was very concerned it would be more than two years old and was prepared to refuse delivery if it was. But two months old? I am very excited.
