javaperl said: [Q]I had been waiting for Costco's sale on the Sealy's firm model (Guilmont) for months, but it never came.
Finally I bought a similar mattress set (same number of coils, same firmness, etc) from a local "Mattress Discounter" store, and negotiated to have a deal that is 5% cheaper than Costco's price, and WITHOUT TAX, delivered. This store is in Hayward, CA. Tax rate is 8.75%. So the total price is around 13.70% cheaper than Costco's. Very good deal. The one I bought is almost the same as Costco's firm model, Guilmont, not Fenway. But you may find similar models from mattress discounter as well. The model names are different in different carriers.

the guilmont is probably the 'sacred' line at mattress discounters (not positive), if not something lower. this was on promo a couple weeks ago (just ended last tuesday). the two lines you could choose from were the sealy sacred line or the simmons beautyrest carmel line, your choice of firm, plush, or pillow top for the same price. twin: $587, full: $637, queen: $687, cali king: $1087. (i've read of the simmons mattresses falling apart pretty quickly, so i really didn't want to go with that.)
mattress discounters said they would match for the 'array' line, although they weren't willing to do it until i told them that sleep train would gladly match the price. they kept claiming that the mattresses were of worse quality at costco, you couldn't return the mattresses, they were made of really cheap materials for costco wholesale pricing, etc. etc. editing to add that all of these claims are incorrect! the salesman kept getting so many things wrong (coil counts, price of the set, and so on), not to mention badmouthing other stores. so unprofessional, it felt like the obscure dark back alley where you get ripped off...the sample works, the one you buy won't. what crap.
but there is good news! at sleep train (my new fav mattress store), i got the 'filmore plush' as a pricematch ($450 - 5% extra) for the fenway...i think i might have seen the 'transform' mattresses too, but the salesguy said he couldn't do the deal for that one. mattress + boxspring + frame + mattress pad + delivery for just over $640 including cali sales tax. plus 12 months free financing (no down payments, etc. etc.) and a nice 90-day comfort guarantee.

Almost over on the 31st better hurry I got a Cali King in the Alhambra Store! Great Deal for a great mattress!

Just picked up a Cal. King for $609 (661.14 out the door), Fountain Valley CA. You don't pay the $100 shipping charge (of course) if you pick up. Thanks OP.

Last day of instant rebate bump. Got the Fenway CalKing last night for $609 + tax at the Santa Clara store. They still have some stock. Great deal. Slept well last night.
FYI, we had a Sanford ($1299) for the past 30 or so days and found it to be too soft for our liking. It was like we were sleeping in the bed vs. on it. It was harder to get in and out of and with the memory foam part, I could tell everytime I rolled over, half conscious that the foam took a while to reform. Weird feeling.
So we're much a happier with the Fenway. Comfy top but still firm. Plus we saved over $700 over the Sanford. It's going back this weekend.

Does the Fenway have memory foam? I tired to find a similar mattress at Art Van just to test. The model with the closest specs had memory foam, I didn't care for that at all.
posted: Aug. 31, 2004 @ 12:56p
thanks OP! I just bought the queen. i decided to go with the delivery route, I don't need the mattress immediately, and less hassle having to get someone to help me pickup and deliver. still a great price IMO. thanks. $576 with tax.

Just in case anyone wanted to buy today and pickup in a week or two...NO
I just called and they said you would have to take it with you. I am moving soon and was hoping I could get the good price but then pick it up later. I could do the delivery option, but then I'm looking at paying the extra $100
Oh well, this futon mattress with no frame I'm using isn't so bad...<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif" border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif" border=0><img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif" border=0>

[Q]Does the Fenway have memory foam?
Duh, I guess I typed too fast...what I was supposed to say is does the Fenway FEEL "memory foamish"? Really plushy or just a bit? Lots of matresses have it but they don't all feel the same. Wish I could try it out at Costco.
Another thought - we use a heated mattress pad in the winter to warm our bed before we get in (damp old house). The memory foam mattress toppers turn to mush with the heat, has anyone heard of this with the mattress foam? The salesman at Art Van had no clue.
ChicaQuePica, thanks for the specs anyway!

If the other Costco mattresses are considered "plush", then the Fenway I would consider firm even with all of the materials noted above. The Sanford (eurotop, what I had) is firmer then the next one down (Allendale? w/pillow top). I would consider both of them feeling very "memory foam-ish" and soft. All I can describe it as sleeping "in" the bed vs. on it. Read my post above on the previous page for a bit more details.

I went to Costco and looked at the mattresses. The fenway has 1/2" memory foam, but it is on the bottom of the mattress ... furthest away from where your body would touch the mattress. I opted for the pillowtop Allendale. It is 3.75" thicker and had a pillowtop. It's all a matter of preference. I paid for the Allendale in the local B&M Costco, then went home to call for delivery. The lady on the phone told me the mattress set would be delivered in 7-10 days. The cost included delivery. I was wondering how I'd get a king set home without damaging it. This was a nice, no hassle way to purchase a mattress and since I made the purchase at the B&M store, I hopefully have better warranty options ... if I ever have problems with it. Gotta love Costco!
Now I need to find a decent deal on deep pocket (17") sheets and a comforter set.

i'm shopping for a King size mattress set. I'm considering Costco Sealy Fenway and WallMart Simmons Beautyrest. Can anybody adivice how Costco Sealy Fenway would compare to which of the Beautyrest lines (Spectrum or Chelsea Park) sold by WallMart?

Just an FYI.
Costco is having the promotion again. This time it's $100 off until 11/30/2005. Online the King size costs $759.99 minus $100 for $659.99 total. Queen costs $599.99-100=499.99.

for anyone who is interested, you can go to this page and ask the expert a question regarding this mattress or any brand in general. its a regional website for the town of philly, was surprised at the amount of questions/responses...he seems to do 10 or so a day
I bought the fenway during the August rebate, and I think it is great.
Just the right amount of firmness for support and softness for comfort.
A great price for a great mattress.

So the Fenway is a good matress after all. I would looking at that and Allandale. Only difference it seems is Allendale has pillow top...

Mine is being delivered later this afternoon. I'll let you know tomorrow how it is.

I am not a fan of the pillow-top. The Fenway is already a plush top, and since I use a mattress pad, there is already enough padding.
Also, certain sheets may not fit over the pillow-top, especially if you use a mattress pad.
Just my nickel (inflation, you know.)

Is the Fenway confortable without a mattress pad? I called up Costco by me and they dont have it in stock so i cant try it.. $600 vs $800.. Im wondering if I should just get the Fenway and foam it plus save the $$$ vs getting the Allendale

The Fenway is great "out of the box." The first night we slept on it without the sheets or the frame because they were packed away during the move and we were tired. Save the $$$.
A mattress pad isn't needed, but I just think a good investment to protect against spills, etc. and add the little added cushion.
Check out this pad for $20 - $4 coupon = $16 at Bed Bath & Beyond (less the 20% coupon floating around)
I too bought this during the promo and I like it. One caveat about the pillow top design. Good luck getting sheets that "fit" Sean and I bought the Queen bed, and bought "oversized" queen sheets, but they still don't fit right. I am gonna buy king sheets now, so that they stay on. When Sean and I wrestle around, good luck with getting the sheets to stay on for the night.
Good luck. -pride

We also bought during this promo. CalKing is great (I'm 6'2"). Just enough softness on top with support underneath. We had "demo'ed" an Allendale and it was too soft for my wife and I. The Fenway is a perfect fit between soft and firm support.
