I was sure I'd asked this before. Looking for a new mattress for guest room and assumed those online rolled mattresses were offering better value for money, but even with 35% black Friday deal they are more expensive than normal mattresses.

Anyone tried one and on what basis are they for 2 to 3 times the price of a pocket spring branded mattress.

You were sure you asked this before? When you only registered for UKC today?

Perhaps when they had a different account?

Gangam Style!

Lying on one will protect you from covid

It's for a guest room. Why pay "2 to 3 times the price"?

I’ve made a mattress out of the millions of discarded face masks that I’ve picked up from the hedgerows of Wigan. It’s really heavy and very firm, must weigh a futon.

Does that make you a super(bed)spreader?

Agreed. Eider downed tools after the first one

A blanket ban on all bed-based punning?

I agree. Let's start with a clean sheet.

And I agree. More puns will only bolster the quality of this thread.

I bought one and sent it back within the trial. Switched back to silent night.

Found it too soft at the edges, getting out wasn't going to be comfortable for our parents - the main users of our guest room.

Price was never a consideration, but the miracoil was probably cheaper.

I called it at 20:35, though not as a troll. I see it as a pathetic one-off advertising thread from a brand new user, of the kind that seem to proliferate these days. If it WAS a troll, I'd give it 1/10

Dude. I spent most of my life searching out these odd posts. My “Gangnam Style” is the equivalent of a steak through the heart or a silver bullet. They are odd though - some have links to a website, some a link to a none existent questionnaire about lunch boxes. 

Profitifdoom beat me this time.  I need to get sharper.

"Lying"? Telling lies while on a mattress, or laying down on a mattress?? One has to wonder ha ha ha

'Lying on a mattress' - just about the only thing in the world our Prime Minister is actually good at.

Not so...

  • He can lie on mattresses (note: his 7 children)
  • He can lie while sitting
  • And he's also very capable at lying while standing
