If I was going to get my wife something for Xmas, do you think I should just order it in October or is this a common sale and prices could get lower?

rated:
The W Bed has been discussed in at least 3 other threads, and there is a very good FAQ in one of them. Please search for "W bed" in the Expired Deals forum.

This sale is "common" in the sense that we all manage to find the coupon every month. However, the prices seem fairly stable, and you are unlikely to do better than the present price.

Another popular point of discussion is regarding what the W Bed exactly is... the overall consensus is that this is a Simmons Beautyrest bed with 850 pocketed coils. The quality is somewhere between the Beautyrest Classic (budget) line and the World Class (premium) line.

ImageShack pictures of my bed:

* Bed Tag
* Bed End

This is visual proof that the W Bed is a Beautyrest World Class bed. Now... where this bed ranks within the World Class series is still open to debate.

All I know is that I just spent my first night in the bed and LOVE IT!

Cheers!

I'll second that. I got in on this deal when it was posted in August and have been sleeping on the plush king for about 6 weeks. Fabulous mattress at a pretty great price.

How firm is it?

rated:
Has there been any answers regarding the discrepancy between foundation prices for the two mattresses?

PLUSH TOP SET
$1420.00
PLUSH TOP MATTRESS ONLY
$1265.00
PILLOW TOP SET
$1720.00
PILLOW TOP MATTRESS ONLY
$1270.00

Plush top foundation price $155
Pillow top foundation price $450

Is it the same foundation??

rated:
Thank you for the help Yoshi!

rated:
Is this deal better than would be expected for Black Friday. I am look for a Full sized set.

rated:
Sweet! Was waiting for this. Thanks OP

rated:
Which is more firm? Plush Top or Pillow Top?
I need one thats more firm, one that won't sink.

Good deal..thanks for the post op

rated:
Plush Top is firmer than Pillow Top.

The Plush Top just has some cushion on top of the mattress but the Pillow Top has it's own seperate additional layer of cushion on top of the mattress.

I have a Plush and I feel like it's a fairly firm mattress. Not rock hard but not as soft as I wanted it to be. I should have got the Pillow Top but too late now, so I might just get a feather bed instead.

rated:
Thanks, OP. Just placed an order for a plush-top set.
Wonder why standard shipping was my only choice?

Mattress pricing is highly variable and it is difficult to shop around IMHO. A mattress at one store may go by a different name in another store. Furthermore, many people are able to negotiate mattress prices down by anywhere from 30-40% at any particular store.

So... will the BF deals be better than this deal? Well... I guess if you are a great haggler, you may come out ahead during BF.

However, how will you truly know how your BF bed compares to this bed? Can your body truly memorize the comfort level of each bed as you go from store to store?

Personally, I jumped on this deal because it is:
1) It's well researched by hundreds of FatWallet members
2) I don't like to haggle
3) I want to save my time/gas shopping
4) I hate furniture store sales people (worse than car dealers in this market)

Cheers,
Yoshi

I need the king, and am considering trying to buy the foundation locally. Does anyone have experience doing that?

Does anyone know how this would compare to this one on sale for 50% off at Sears?

After the coupon, the W bed foundation represent around $100-$270 of the total price of the bed (depending on if you choose the Plush or Pillowtop set.)

Furthermore, when it comes to the foundation, the Simmons warranty is somewhat vague about what qualifies as providing "proper support." (The requirements for the *bed frame* on the other hand are well documented.)

Plus... factor in the cost, gas and labor of getting the foundation on your own... at that point, is it REALLY worth it?


bhyde01 said:

No comparison. Even a quick check of your Sears link indicates that that bed only has 675 coils while the W bed has 800+ pocketed coils.

Please read the link at the top of the FAQ for more details. I know it is a pretty tough thread to read through, but this is how I became an informed buyer prior to actually buying the mattress.

None of these are flippable? I'm prob gonna get the plush, but i'm worried about dents in the mattress if you can't flip it after a while.

Also, can anyone comment on their bedsheets and whether or not they're worth getting?

rated:
I've had the Pillowtop without a foundation for about a year and a half. I've had it on a platform bed, and it's worked out great. You kind of sink into it when you're on it, but not too much where it would become uncomfortable. It was awesome from day one, but I would say that it took it about 3 months or so to break in, and has been even better ever since.

The beds allegedly do not need to be be flipped by design.

If by dents, you mean the impression left by your body.... the warranty will cover dents bigger than 1.5" deep. (I have no idea how they measure this...)

However, the warranty will not cover any bent wires on the edge of the bed.


infiniti029 said: Also, can anyone comment on their bedsheets and whether or not they're worth getting?

No clue on the bedsheets. I'm considering visiting my local W hotel's gift shop to see for myself. However, you should be able to get 400 thread count sheets for under $100, so the sheets probably are not too much of a bargain...

I have a two week old Simmons Beautyrest box spring for sale if anyone is interested in just buying the mattress from the W Store. PM me if you're interested. I live in Fairfax, VA.

I am selling the box spring as I'm getting a bed that doesn't need a box spring. The box spring is in brand new condition, and I'll sell it for $140 (paid $200 for it at Sleepy's).

I have the W Hotel Cal King featherbed for sale. PM me if interested.

My husband and I just tried the Heavenly Bed and my husband loved it. Is the W bed the same as the Heavenly bed? I know the Heavenly Bed is available at Nordstroms. Nordstroms is having an employee sale on November 2, 2008 thru November 8, 2008. I would love to get the discount on the Heavenly Bed. Thoughts anyone?

rated:
Nordstroms employee discount on the Heavenly Bed begins November 2 thru November 8 2008. How can I buy this bed at discount?

rated:
Does anyone know where the original FAQ came from? It's written as if it was from someone at Starwood (e.g. "all of our beds..."). I'm curious, because this seems to confirm what I believed to be true about my Westin Heavenly Bed...that it's not the same as the beds used in the hotel (even the brand new ones). It's WAY too soft for my taste, so I'll be returning it to Norstrom for a refund(minus delivery and a 15% restocking fee.) Everyone at Nordstrom and Simmons swear up and down that it's the same mattress, but I don't believe it, especially since the label says "Heavenly Bed by Westin-at-Home: Customized for Home Use." If I could find the source of the original FAQ, that would help me in my negotiations to try to waive the restocking fee. Thanks!

Sorry I was not clear. I meant that I was waiting for this code before he posted it. Big thanks to OP.

I have been reading some reviews online for Simmons Beautyrest and a lot of them are saying that they are bad after a couple of years. Has anyone had this mattress for that long that can confirm that these are good for the long haul?

Can anyone who got in on this deal previously tell me what the delivery time frame is like in NYC metro area? I live in NJ right near a 1800mattress store. I understand from some other posts that the bed is actually delivered by 1800mattress. Can anyone in my area confirm this? Also, how does delivery work? Do they come in with the mattress or leave it at the door? Lastly, has anyone been contacted by W Hotels after sale to ask about how they used the employee code? Any problems? Thanks.

Pull the trigger on Cal King plush top. Hope they would ship it faster.

Delivery inside the NYC Metro area is supposed to be within 3 days....it probably depends on who will deliver it, but consider yourself lucky....the rest of us have a 2-3 WEEK delivery window.

I wish I would have found this earlier. Had to cancel by locally ordered bed and jumped on this deal. Kind of a hassle but I saved about $400 over the model I was buying locally. Couldn't decide on the feather bed or the cover with primaloft so I opted for the feather bed option. Ended up ordering the King plush model set with frame and the feather bed. Came to $1057 after coupon. Not bad.

I don't live in your area but I can answer part of your question. I live in CA but my bed was delivered by 1800mattress. Some time after you order, you should get a call from 1800mattress asking you when is a good time to deliver the bed. You setup a date with them and they give you a time frame for delivery on that day. When they come on the delivery day, they bring the mattress/box spring/frame up to your room, open the packaging and setup everything for you.

I haven't had any problems and I wasn't contacted by W Hotels after. The only problem I have is that the plush bed is too firm for me.
