[This is another guest post and plea for information or reviews, but this time it's all about buying a mattress from Costco. Eleanor wanted me to put her request about suggestions or reviews on Costco's mattress selection to all of you.]
I have been a happy Costco member for over 11 years; when it comes to daily needs or major purchases, my first choice is always Costco. I need to buy a new mattress, but am worried about not being able to test it out in person before purchasing. I hate returning things — especially something as large and as heavy as a king-sized mattress. That would be such a waste (in terms of materials, gas, energy and labor).
So, I was hoping I could turn to the AddictedToCostco.com readers for information, if possible — do you have any advice about choosing a mattress from Costco? Is there any way to try out Costco mattresses at a bricks & mortar store? Are any of these brands/models sold under a different name in other retail stores, so that I could at least test them out? In particular, I was considering purchasing the Kirkland Signature Stearns & Foster “Boswell” mattress set that’s currently on sale online. However, the inner construction/materials don’t match any Stearns & Foster mattresses that I could find at a retail store. And, unfortunately, there are no customer reviews of this set online.
I would dearly appreciate any advice or information you could give.
Thanks very much for your time,
