Discussion: Mattresses > Memory Foam Question
1 of 7

I agree with the comments that find the CR report on mattresses less than helpful - good background info, but not a single "best buy" recommendation that I was looking for. Misleading advertising, actually, on CR's part. And like others who have posted comments, I subscribed just to get some good, brand specific info that I can take with me into stores.

I am considering a memory foam mattress made by Jeffco Fibres in Webster, MA. It's being sold at Ocean State Job Lot for $450 for a full, $680 for a queen. Does anyone have any experience with this brand or any other memory foam brands other than Tempurpedic?

No, I do not have any experience with the company mentioned. However, I am looking in to purchasing a memory foam mattress. Have looked at Tempur-Pedic and found that they control their prices and found them the same where ever I went and frightfully expensive. On the internet however I found a company by the name of Angel , they claim that their product is equal to Tempur-Pedic at a substantially lower price. Furthermore, they have a ninety day return policy. Mattresses are send UPS and drop shipped to your door. Also, there is no sales tax with the exception for Texas. Hope this helps you.

Anyone you know ever dealt with the Bob-O-Pedic stores? Claims he can knock off $1000 for the same as Tempurpedic.

I bought the 11" Memory Foam Euro Pillow Top Mattress sold by Ocean State Job Lot for $1000 (Queen) a few weeks ago. It is also made by Jeffco Fibres. So far, me and my wife love it. With my old mattress I used to wake up with slight back pain. I seem to sleep better with the memory foam. I've looked around and these sell for $2000-$3000 online and the Tempurpedics can cost even more. I figured with a 30 day money back guarantee it would be worth the try. Looks like we'll be keeping it. I think I'm going to pick up some memory foam pillows from them too.

I agree that the CR report wasn't very helpful. I guess there are just too many choices and you need to try them out. Unfortunately it can be hard to tell if you're getting a good deal.

Lots of companies sell memory foam and you can even buy a simple, separate foam topper for any mattress that can range between 1-4" inches thick. Same thing for pillows.

And most of them are absolute junk
