Sleep number bed

Just curious if anyone here has a sleep number bed and what their thoughts were on it. Is getting time to replace our mattress and we are looking at all options

Re: Sleep number bed

Bought one back in 1998 cause of a bad back...still going strong today. Love it! Just replaced the air pump this year. Has the two bladders so you can have different pressures per side. Bought mine back when it was a 5000 model. Expensive, but considering it is still in good shape almost 20 years later, I feel good about that.

Re: Sleep number bed

I've had one about 10 years and it's nice to be able to adjust when you want. Sometimes I like a firmer mattress and sometimes I like to sleep in a hammock.

A friend of mine bought one on my recommendation and went whole hog with the one that inclines like a hospital bed. Says he loves it.

Any model you get is going to be more expensive than most regular mattress though. Be prepared.

And if you have a store near you, it's nice to be able to go try before you buy.

I had an issue with the pump and they sent me a refurb unit for little to no cost. I was happy with the customer service.

Thumbs up Re: Sleep number bed

Mine's about 13 years old. Hope I don't jinx myself, but have never had an issue. Only "maintenance" I've ever had to do is replace battery in the remote. I also have the double/separate sided model.

Only thing I can say is get a standard size...we got an expanded Queen, I think it's called, and it is in between a Queen and King (and longer), so finding sheets that fit it is nearly impossible...unless of course, you buy them directly from Sleep Number...coincidentally, they sell them...

Re: Sleep number bed

That is the one complaint that my friend has. He can only get sheets through them.

Re: Sleep number bed

Have had one a few years now. I love it. Granted it's a glorified air mattress,and costs too much, but having the ability to change the settings is great.

Re: Sleep number bed

As stated, it is an overpriced air-mattress, but since my wife weighs half what I do, we needed different firmness. So the twin mattress queen works for us. Also, I can't fit a typical queen size mattress up my 1930's bungalow stairway...this was the only way to get a queen size to the second story... Sleep Number prices are insane for accessories.

Re: Sleep number bed

Ditto to all of the above - we have had ours for about 14 years.... no problems and we sleep well.

So we looked at them and we liked them but the model we liked the most was over $6600 dollars. We ended up getting a hybrid mattress (half memory foam half coil spring) from a traditional store. It ended up being half the cost and has a 120 night return policy with no implications. We just couldn't justify the expense on the sleep number the one we bought has a 10 year warranty and came with a bunch of extras.

Re: Sleep number bed

Those are sold exclusively for QVC not sure how they compare to the store models. We really liked the I10 even over the I8 but didn't care for any of the other models.

We bought the Beautyrest Jennings Black Hybrid Plush Mattress

We have had ours for a few (4? Maybe longer) years and we like it over a traditional bed. I want to say it was like $3k or something with no interest for a year.it doesn't raise or lower like some of the higher end models do. Overall, we like it. I had hurt the nerve in my shoulder several years back, and sleeping on it aggravated it and my wife has had back issues all of her life. Sleeping has been much better on it for us than a traditional bed.

Now-a-days I've been eyeing up the Purple mattress:

1968 Chevelle Malibu 454, mild cam, 30 over, 12-bolt 3.73 rear
1972 Chevelle Malibu 350, radical cam, 30 over, 10-bolt 3.55 rear
2007 Mustang GT, 4.6L (281), Stock
There are no Ford vs. Chevy wars in my garage. It's all U.S. muscle.

Re: Sleep number bed

Got one. Love it. Saved myself several hundred bucks by opting not to get the fancy memory foam pillow top. Hit up Costco for one of their memory gel foam toppers and placed it inside the cover instead of the sleep number foam it came with.
