Hi guys, after reading through this thread, it seems to me there's a lot of individual preference with respect to getting mattress. Personally I would prefer to get a mattress that can give me a good night rest and waking up the next morning feeling fresh and recharged. Trying out mattress is never fun but deciding on the right one is lagi worst. as wisely yee say, in thailand they maybe selling Sealy mattress much cheaper. But then again, if what you mention that they manufature in Thailand is right, then I feel that the price there is only right to be cheaper than in Singapore. Same thing goes for Toyota and Honda, they oso manufature in Thailand and guess what, a brand new honda city in Thailand cost probably S$20k plus but in Singapore in cost more than S$50K! Bottom line is that the standard of living in Thailand compare to Singapore is very much a big gap. So we cant compare it this way.
But come to think of it, if can get the same mattress in Thailand, then maybe can consider to go there and buy then air freight it into singapore and send to my new house. hahaha.. alamak by this way can save more oso. But then again, who on earth will do it this way. Must well save the trouble and buy the Sealy mattress during some great sales in Spore.
Anyway, I had just made my purchase of the San Marino at Robinson today. I saw on the paper about the GSS promo. Seem quite good deal. 20% off + $300 off + 5%off from Robinson Card. The sales till 11/06. those who are interested can make way there. I pay S$2245 for San Marino. Btw the sales manager promise us that in the event if within the next few months before delivery that the pricing drop any further, they will do a balance refund to us. haha i oso get 4 pillows and a mattress protector from him. so quite happy with the deal lah. He double confirm that its a 10yrs guarantee and not warrenty. Meaning to say any defects, we can have the right to ask for 1 to 1 exchange.
Come to think of it. if a mattress cost $2500 and can last for 10 yrs, ie, 3650days, then each day you only need to spend appr. $0.70 for 2 of you to get a peaceful and comfortable sleep. Its better then anything else on earth.. hehe..
No offence to anyone, just my 2 cent worth of info. cheers.
