Costco Nova Form Pure Comfort Grand 09 Nov 2014 04:48 #1

Hi,
We are in desperate need of a new king mattress and live in the 22046 zip code.
We saw that Costco is offering its NovaForm 12" King Pure Comfort Grand™ Memory Foam Mattress for $539.00 this week while supplies last.
We know from your mattress forum that you would have concerns about the top 3 inches being only 3 lb memory foam. But at this price, might we expect to get at least 5 or so years? We can spend in the 1,000-1,500 range, but have a spouse who has been out of work for a while and we'd prefer not to spend that much now if we can get a decent mattress for this price and fairly risk free given return policy. We are mostly side sleepers and weight 160/140 respectively and loved our traditional spring mattress with memory foam topper until it literally seemed to 'die' overnight and now we've been about a year with aches and pains.
We also know Urban Mattress is close by. Would you recommend trying anything thre or elsewhere comparable to this Costco Mattress?
Are there any stores nearby that offer your bonus/discount?
Thanks!

Hi tabdams4,

There isn't a way to quantify how long a mattress will last for any particular person because it depends on many things including where they are in in the "I can sleep on anything" to "princess and the pea" range and when they cross the thresholds in between sleeping well on a mattress to sleeping "OK" to tolerating a mattress to finally deciding to replace it. Having said that ... with 3" of 3 lb memory foam I don't think it would be reasonable to "expect" this mattress to last for 5 years no and the reason I suggest avoiding 3 lb memory foam (see the guidelines here ) unless you are in the very lowest budget ranges and there are no other better options available is because the risk is too high that it may last significantly less than that.

IMO ... there are better quality/value options included in the list of the better online memory foam manufacturers and retailers linked in the mattress shopping tutorial (in the optional online step).

We are in desperate need of a new king mattress and live in the 22046 zip code.


The better options and possibilities I'm aware of in and around the Northern Virginia area (subject to the guidelines here ) are listed in post #2 here .
