Last month at a Sleep Country ( "ZZZ" is their ticker symbol) store, my mom fell in love with Tempur-pedic's LuxeBreeze Soft, part of ADAPT Collection. Neither link shows prices. The asst. manager, Rob, alleged $4500 CAD as the price.
Last week, when she sampled it again, Rob alleged a sale, and that it costs $3800 now. This alleged "sale" made us distrust Rob and rankled us. We just left.
Today when I called Rob, he alleged he doesn't "palaver" on prices by email or phone. We're riled that Rob is so harebrained and ungracious to even suggest returning to a store (a third freaking time!) just to haggle, when this can be done by phone. We're busy people.
Tempur Sealy emailed us that ZZZ is the only retailer that sells LuxeBreeze. Tempur-pedic's other 5 collections don't have LuxeBreeze's cooling features.
My extended family has at least one person with a mattress from Casper, Endy, Hamuq, Silk & Snow, Logan Cove, Purple. But these online manufacturers' mattresses aren't soothing enough for my mom. Tempur-pedics are allegedly incomparably better?
How can we haggle the price productively, by phone or email, without revisiting his store? We're so wearied and wrathful that buying a mattress is trickier than buying a car. My mom cried today!
Any insiders here know the typical retail markup on mattresses? How do I avoid paying full price?
