Awhile ago we posted about trying out DreamCloud Mattress, which claims to be the best sleep money can buy with their 15″ blend of latex, tufting and coil technology, memory foam and hand-craft Cashmere. I’m completely sold. I just love it. And even though I can’t ever imagine returning this mattress, DreamCloud does have a 365-night Trial and Everlong Warranty – how wonderful is that? DreamCloud is so sure of their product, they will give you a full year, 365 nights, to try it and decide if this is the right mattress for you! If you don’t love it, they will remove the mattress and refund your money. And less than 3% of DreamCloud customers return their mattress. While most mattress companies only offer a 10-15 year warranty, the DreamCloud Mattress has the Everlong Warranty. DreamCloud Mattress construction and materials is guaranteed for the full life of use by the original owner! If you’re in the market for a new mattress, I recommend checking them out. Right now you can save $200 on any size DreamCloud Mattress, no code needed (it should apply automatically), prices as listed. And all orders ship FREE.

Through Friday, you can subscribe to Smithsonian Magazine for only $8.85 per year (81% off)! You can order up to one (1) year at this price when you use coupon code QUEENBEE at checkout. This is a RARE discount!
