Help buying mattress

Im looking at getting a new mattress and wanted some advice on buying. Today im gonna go look at mattresses and get an idea of cost and what i like. I do have a few questions off the top of my head.
Should i get a new box spring to go with it?
What should i look for when buying a new mattress?
Any good brands recomended?
Thanks for any help you can give me.
i found that the mark up is insane on that shit. I have a friend that works at a furniture store and is able to buy at almost 50% off (can buy at 10% over cost) now i know to wheel and deal on any furniture item ESPECIALLY when it’s time to throw out the old mattress.

as far as conventional spring matresses go, many brands all have the springs made by a company called "legget and plat" or "prat" i can’t remember exactly but many major brands have the same guts just different covers and stitching etc.
Haggle on the price. Last mattress I bought I talked them down to almost half of what was on the tag.
I need a new mattress too. Can a decent one be had for under $650
bedinabox.com I got mine from there and I love it!!!!

um go to bed in a box dot com…..

really goo mattress had it for almost a year now. got the 11" queen for 500. looks like they are having a special with the down topper for 500 right now.

comes in a vacuum sealed bag and a large box. open the box carefully cut the plastic and it will rise up, couple hours later its ready to sleep on!

I was already at the site, I meant the quality of the mattress, comfort, etc.

Damn.. just checked out the site… tempted to buy it…..
and they got a 5% referral code… making it 470ish shipped..

paid regular price for my queen size a couple years ago…..$800. It was a lot – but damn it’s comfortable.
bedinabox came in earlier today… been to busy to try it out.. maybe ill get it on my bed frame and sleep on it if im not too lazy tonight.. will let you guys know how it goes tomorrow.

edit.. just got everything all set up..
just a newbie question… the part that is "foamy" is the memory foam part right? haha

editx2:
slept for like 10 freaking hours… still dont wanna get out of bed…
all i can say is. on my old mattress if i slept for this long ill have back pains and etc… as of right now i dont feel any back pains or anything…
comfort – 10 out of 10
it also doesnt retain any heat or anything.
woke up only once at night to go pee versus the usual of waking up at least 3-4 times on my old mattress…

overall good buy!

glad I could help

yep thanks.
so far the mattress has been really good to me.

also not to mention the follow up through the company is fucking AWESOME.

they asked me how the mattress was… i told them i liked it and etc.
they said well since you like it so much.. we’ll send you a complimentary memory foam pillow. (it costs 49.99 on their site)
