Re: Buying new mattress - any ideas ?

I have to say, we just got my daughter a spring and foam mattress from Ikea, and it is better than our mattress. I had to get rid of our memory foam one as my back just did not like it.

I was covered in november by columbus, but got it through quidco and got cashback. I have also had it covered under the post office, and halifax. Columbus was cheapest though.
