  1. I can’t tell you how many years I’ve wanted one of these beds. I’ve gone to many of the showrooms and checked them out. Just never could part with the money to get one. I’ll be there for the chat though !!

  2. I have owned a Select Comfort QUEEN bed since the early 90s and have never had one bit of trouble out of it. Yes, it was fairly expensive then ($1800), but with my back problems from a car accident I had at age 18 (30 years ago), I had a difficult time with conventional beds – no matter how soft, hard, firm, pillow top, etc., they were! Sleeping on a regular boxed spring mattress made me look (and feel) like an old woman in the mornings .. all bent over, trouble straightening up, rough nights sleep .. it was awful.

    When my (ex) husband and I got this bed, I knew it was a winner. The first night was rough (my back was adjusting to support!), but after that, no problems at all! The 90 night guarantee was not needed! Since my divorce, my husband even purchased his OWN Select Comfort bed. lol

    I tell anyone who has back problems, leg problems or any nights of fitful sleep to BUY ONE OF THESE BEDS! It will more than pay for itself in the long run. No turning the mattress, no worries about the bed wearing out, the mattress is room temperature when you get in and .. in the winter months, warms up QUICKLY from your body heat and is cooler in the summer.

    I’m trying for this bed because mine is so old, it was purchased before the wireless models came out. My son needs a good bed, so I would give him my old bed and use this one for myself! ; )

    Thanks for this opportunity. I could easily be a Select Comfort spokesmodel. ha ha I LOVE THIS BED!!

  3. I’m trying to win the sleep number bed. Right now I’m sleeping on a futon and I have a bad back with two herniated discs and I’m getting cortiosteroid injections in my neck for a severely pinched nerve causing me severe daily migraines which I am sure not being able to move at times when I wake up, and being sore all over, including part of my neck problem, is due to the lack of a really great mattress like this one. We were looking, but just can’t afford anything right now with twins +2, so I sit, wait, and suffer. I followed all of the rules in hopes of possibly winning.
    Thanks for your time, and for this giveway. Shelly

  4. Ok..I managed to get on. Where is the chat at? I’ll search!! xoxo Shelly

  5. Oh, I guess this is it. It’s 10 pm here, so i THINK it should be starting now if translated into CST. Anyone out there? 🙂 After a day of chasing twins..I don’t know how long I might last! lol. Hoping everybody is well.


  6. PS- last night I retweeted, Google +, anbd liked this on FB to.


  7. If I wasn’t going to be in physical therapy during the chat, I would totally go for this. 🙁 But I’ll be sure to spread the word about the chat session with my followers. Such a great deal!!
