I just finished furnishing a house and bought several mattresses and bed frames. I got an INCREDIBLY COMFY king bed and frame for less than $400 on Amazon. Here's the mattress I got.
Dude I got an all foam mattress from amazon for $300. Best bang for your buck right there. Edit: I'm 6.3", got the king size. I love it. [link]
I’m not sure what your current financial situation is, but I wanted to share this anyway. Maybe you could quickly save up for it or make a mini GoFundMe.
My husband and I purchased this mattress when we moved to an apartment together. It’s super inexpensive but has been the best mattress either of us has slept on, ever. It’s a perfect combination of firm and soft. The prices also vary depending on what size/length you get
It's not that expensive to go the distance. Buy yourself some nice pillows too (Ross has awesome deals)!
I got my mattress off Amazon and it's one of those memory foam deals that comes all compressed. It is super firm, so if you're not into firm, you would hate it. It was under $200, though, so way worth it for me! I have not noticed any of the temperature issues other people have with memory foam.
Zinus Memory Foam 12 Inch Green Tea Mattress, Queen [link]
I recently bought the Zinus memory foam mattress (one of those mattress in a box deals) on Amazon and I've loved it the last month or so. They are insanely cheap compared to the bigger brands. An idea if you want to skip the air mattress and buy a reasonably priced permanent option.
i love my memory foam mattress, very comfortable and resilient. it was also much cheaper than the average mattress. the 2 main downsides i have come across though are that they can be a little hot. so not great in summer and if you lay in one spot to long it can be hard to move. so if your say watching a movie in bed or reading a book it can be hard to adjust your position into something that is more comfortable for sleeping. i won't lay in my bed anymore unless i know for sure i am going to sleep. other than that though the mattress is fantastic, it's very easy to fall asleep you don't get lumps in the bed, and if you have a partner movement doesn't transfer much so you don't wake them up. oh thats one last complaint, sex is a bit harder since you sink into the bed more. i would definitely recommend getting one though if your looking for a mattress. i purchased a Zinus Memory Foam 12 Inch Green Tea Mattress, Queen for 200 bucks at the start of 2016. when it was on sale. it's 279 now.
I really like my Zinus mattress that I got from Amazon, for the price. Surprisingly high quality for a budget option.
ive used this for like 3 years
you can get a bed frame for $100-300, depending on metal/wood/construction type on amazon also
I purchased this last year off of amazon and I have zero complaints. Ruptured cervical discs, spasms, the whole gambit. It helps tremendously, is affordable but not a cure.
Zinus Memory Foam 12 Inch Green Tea... [link]
I got mine off Amazon. It's memory foam so it gets shipped to you rolled up in a box. You unroll it and let it air for a day, where it gets bigger and more firm.
I had a full size in college and when I moved I got a king size. 2 years later and it's really comfortable.
Would say, on that budget, the Zinus 12" Memory Foam mattress may be a really good deal. Sale for $189 (~$100 off):
Not durable, probably won't hold up past your graduation. Might not even last that long without forming indentations (cheap memory foam and poly foam).
But, based on construction / reviews, I imagine it would be decently comfortable for a back/side sleeper.
Here are the problems:
There's another brand on Amazon, Lucid, which is a bit cheaper (normally, I think the sale price makes up the difference). Would avoid. They're both low-end, but Zinus seems the least bad of the bargain-basement stuff I've seen from Amazon.
Feel free to follow-up if you have any specific questions.
I think the biggest thing when it comes to mattresses is the up front cost vs the longevity of the mattress. I bought a $200 memory foam mattress off of Amazon and in the three or so months of owning it, it's been amazing for me and my girlfriend when she's stayed over occasionally. I do not know, however, if it will still be comfortable in 5-10 years, but I couldn't beat the price at the time.
There are certainly more expensive options that might hold up better in the long run, but this one has done well by me in the short time I've been sleeping on it.
ikea has clean & simple beds. Easy to put together.
Amazon has affordable mattresses. i recommend this one.
Funny, i actually bought this mattress because i stayed at an Airbnb that had the mattress on the floor and it was my best night sleep in months, if not a year. Got the model & ordered in the next morning.
My wife and I bought this about a year ago and its the single best purchase I've ever made. $200 for a mattress and its the most comfortable thing I've ever slept on. Over 12k reviews and was (might still be, haven't looked) the #1 rated mattress on amazon. It seems almost too good to be true so I almost didn't get it lol
I picked up this $230 12-inch queen size mattress from Amazon, and have no complaints with it. Got it delivered in a huge box, and the setup was very easy. I've had it for over a year now.
I got mine on amazon and love it
We got the Zinus off Amazon : [link]
It was like $180 for a queen on Black Friday in 2017. At full price it's certainly cheaper than the name brand mattresses. We've only had it for 18 months so I can't say how well it holds up long term but so far it's super comfy. My wife and I both sleep on our backs/stomachs/sides and they all work. It took a while for it to stop smelling chemically but it eventually did
Me and the girlfriend got a king size of this off Amazon and love it.
Paid less than $400 as it was on sale.
Check out some of the competition as the mattress industry is incredibly corrupt and there are huge margins some smaller companies are cutting.
I went with this mattress and still love it after 2 years.
I got the king version during like a half off sale or something. Anyway, great mattress.
We went with a fancier frame than the amazon basics ones, but the mattress just sits on the frame, no box spring involved.
Good luck with your hunt.
I'm not sure about any organizations, but I found a really great mattress on Amazon for $179 for queen size (the price fluctuates). It is higher now, but if you watch, it'll go down. Here's the link -- Zinus Memory Foam 12 Inch Green Tea Mattress, Queen [link] -- good luck 🍀
Buy her a mattress on Amazon have it shipped to her house. Sleeping on the floor sounds horrible.
Here is a link to a great queen mattress for under $300 buy her some sheets and pillows also
I have this one (twin/full looks like it's in your budget). Have had it for a few years with no issues. It's a liiiittle bit firm for me but perfect for my wife who has similar issues.
Even the 12-inch full is only 54 pounds. My wife (who is very small) managed to move the 12-inch queen by herself. It works well on a slatted/platform or wire bed frame with no box spring, or directly on the floor lol.
I got a Zinus Green Tea one on amazon and I absolutely love it. I'd never had a foam one before so I guess I can't compare to the multi-thousand dollar ones, but based on the amazon reviews I assume they are fairly equal.
Fairly certain I went with the 10" version instead of 12".
Zinus Green Tea 12-inch Memory Foam Mattress, Queen [link]
I think its this one. Or at least I'm pretty sure. Same brand at least. Full disclosure the magic cooling in summer doesn't work but I'm not sure if that is because we also got a mattress protector for it. But I haven't been punched in the face since we got it!
But I did do a lot of research. Amazon has a bunch of options so I would suggest looking into them. What worked for us might not work for you!
I got a Zinus mattress off of Amazon 4 years ago because I needed a mattress delivered to my doorstep(3rd floor condo) and I didn't have a ton of money to spend. I ended up being so happy with it that I subsequently bought two more for my kids. The price has actually come down on it. I paid $280 for it, and it's $250 now.
I've recommended it to friends, and all have been happy with theirs, too.
Zinus Green Tea Mattress
Not sure if they're better or worse for heavy people but Sinus mattresses are very cheap and super supportive. Queen size on Amazon is $250 and they're memory foamish - no springs. I've had mine for a year and I love it. And at that price if you have to replace it it won't be a big deal.
I have the 12" Green Tea Memory Foam - Queen Mattress myself and it has been pretty good. Has enough give to be comfortable but not so much that you're sinking it with the weight of two people in one spot.
I run a little hot in general (actually I sweat when just thinking of heat) so the bed can be hit or miss for me, but in general it doesn't add much (if any) extra heat throughout the night. I have a lot of random muscular ailments from walking off injuries and the mattress definitely keeps my pain at a minimum after a good rest.
No offense but people can buy a brand new memory foam mattress on amazon for like 250 bucks. [link]
I got this one.
I was afraid of getting a smaller one if it would be to low to the ground since I didn’t buy a box spring to go with it.
I'd been using a tuft and needle for a while. I have a friend who says Purple is pretty good.
My brother just bought this - [link] - says it's quite good. There was a 5 star review that included a few compared mattresses and some other things to buy to make it better (like a topper and stuff) but I'm struggling to find it now.
Anyways... I have EDS and as of two weeks ago I put my tuft and needle in storage and am now sleeping on a solid floor with just a blue camp pad and a medium thickness comforter underneath my hips. Honestly, I love it and it feels feel pretty great. I figure this may trigger some EDSers though...
What's your budget? The online bed-in-a-box are all fairly comparable, with pricing probably being the biggest differentiators.
I have a Casper and have been pleased with it (3+ years), but pricing has increased over the years. I've also been able to try Tuft and Needle when I stayed at my brother's, but felt that was too hot for me as I have a fairly high core temperature.
Also consider Amazon, which also sells a variety of mattresses. I bought the Zinus Memory Foam for my guest bedroom and my guests all love it.
If you end up with Casper, I have a $100 off coupon that I got from a business class flight that can save you a bit of extra money as well.
So I've been using it for a weeks now. So far it's been great. Way better than my garbage spring mattress. It's stiffer than I was expecting, it's more firm (like 7-8 out of 10, where 5 is semi-firm) - but it's not a bad thing, the support is good, I'm getting a good nights sleep and not getting neck pain like I used to. Also at the price I got it, it's so worth it.
It's on sale again today, for boxing day.
For 224$ before tax, mattress only, 12" Queen.
I just furnished a whole house for $6k, and it makes $3k a month. Dont Cheap out on ANYTHING!
The biggest thing is the bed. I found amazing quality mattresses that every complements for under $200
Memory Foam Mattress for $179! and its amazing
I got a queen-sized memory foam mattress from Amazon and I love it. It's a bit lonely since it's just me, but I figure it'll be perfect whenever I get around to finding a girlfriend. I'm hoping that I won't have to get another mattress for a long while.
Here's the link on Amazon if you're curious: [link]
Ya, on one hand I can see that, but people are unlikely to specifically seek out some Chinese made cheap $4 widget to order directly from an unknown manufacturer who might consider selling directly to consumers, but I'd imagine larger purchases like a mattress from reputable, recognized companies, people would not be as hesitant. Seems like it's bound to go that direction as more people are buying things like this for these type of prices relative to storebought mattresses: [link]
How many people are going to be going to mattress firm to spend 3-5x the price when awareness catches up? The big mattress makers are surely going to have to adjust over time as they lose sales to people buying direct and I'd imagine a lot of these mattress stores will too.
weight is a huge factor but what are you sleeping on? Do your self a favor & buy Memory Foam Mattress.
I used to have back pain, knee pain, etc. Didn't change much other than buying this bed and i feel so much less pain! Makes me want to be active & do things to help lose my weight.
Amazon Link the brand is Zinus, and it's semi memory foam. I got the full 8 inches one so it was 150 with tax for me :D. they are the best, i feel so rested from last night sleep.
FOR REAL, they are so expensive. im happy to find this one.
I found another one that's closer to your ideal price of $300 ($289 for a queen).
That said the $200 one will probably do you better since you presumably need money for a frame of some sort as well (and a mattress pad and sheets and...you get the idea).
Just bought this
Will report on how it is after I get it! Tons of great reviews though in the memory foam mattress world of Amazon... AND it's cheap!
I have one of these and it's really great. If you don't mind waiting I got mine for 170.
Amazon - Zinus Mattress
One of the best mattresses I have ever slept on. A fraction of the price of other memory foam mattresses. Comes to your doorstep in a box.
Your best option may be something on Amazon. Not sure if you are looking for a queen or a king, but these are pretty affordable.
If you need a frame, they make those too.
I used Amazon and bought a 12" thick memory foam mattress. I paid $289 for the Queen size 18 months ago. They vacuum compress it for shipping so it's not terribly unwieldy to carry into the house.
Zinius on Amazon. Best mattress I’ve ever had and it cost $275 for a Queen.
Memory Foam Mattress
These are really solid memory foam mattresses and affordable. Free shipping with Amazon Prime.
No, I don't have stock in Amazon: but I bought one of these 2 months ago (King w/ 18 inch frame) and am very happy with both.
Lol. So many people have contacted me post facto. No idea why the thread was deleted.

I bought a queen memory foam mattress on amazon for $229 and it's amazing.
What size and what material are you looking into? The ones listed below are two of the best sellers on Amazon and are within your budget.
The artist who paid way too much for way too little.
I just bought my first mattress with my girlfriend for $250 shipped from Amazon.
Let me tell you, sleeping on this mattress is like sleeping on a cloud.
Word of the wise. I'm 40 and started piecing together the sleep scenario for me.
Had a girl stay over last night and she said it was the most comfortable bed she's slept in. I bought all this stuff twice, one for my master bedroom and the other for the guest room.
Had friends stay two weeks and they too really enjoyed the bedding.
A great sleep experience can maximize restfulness even when you don't get your 6-8hrs.
I'm moving into my new place tomorrow and bought this to get delivered
I had one of these mattresses previously too.
I spent over a 1000 bucks on a mattress that isn’t half as good as this mattress.
In that price range i believe your best options would be a ZINUS foam mattress from Amazon or an IKEA Mattress. I would try out some beds at your local IKEA store first then roll the dice on a ZINUS.
A lot of people seem to like this one:
23, only bought it because I was getting married, just replaced it this year, so I've only boughten 2. The 2nd one I got off Amazon after spending hours researching different mattresses by reading reviews, watching videos, and yeah, lots of stuff. This one is amazing: https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B00Q7EPSHI/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_dp_U_x_QZReEbZKMVZD6
Zinus 12" Queen Green Tea mattress, middle sagging after 6-8 months (did I get a bad mattress?)
Hello all. I suffer from a chronic sleep issue for over 10 years and also fibromyalgia like body pain and pressure points. Last December after finally being sick of the Sleep Number C2 queen I've had for a number of years, I extensively researched online and bought a Zinus 12" Green Tea Mattress, Queen (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00Q7EPSHI). At first, I had no complaints and it. However, within 6 months I definitely noticed that it's not kept it's firmness in the center middle and quickly sags in when I lay down for awhile.
I'm the exact opposite of what you'd call a heavy set person (Male 36, 5'11' and 74.8 kilograms) and am using the base of the old C2. If I move to the sides I can feel the firmness/support of what it originally was. I've even tried readded the 3" thick-4 pound foam topper I had bought for the Sleep Number (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004AR5X92) to see if that would fix it, but it only pronounces it more.
I've been just dealing with it for the past few months but it's only getting worse I have to believe this isn't normal. I want to start a warranty claim with Zinus but I just cringe at having to go through all of this.
I'm just wondering, was I just unlucky and get a bad pick of a mattress? Had anyone else experienced this? Any and all comments & suggestions would be appreciated!

Real talk make sure you have a comfortable bed and give her space in the bathroom. I did long distance with my current boyfriend for a year and he bought a new mattress and a couple comfy pillows and it made a HUGE difference. A nice candle also helps a lot. I'll link a few inexpensive products that she might like! (the candles are a very gender neutral scent so they shouldnt be too much for anyone)

Go to any cheap discount mattress company and get a queen box spring. This is key. Spending the extra $50 to $100 on the box spring makes the mattress 3X better.
Out to the door, you're less than $400.
I got this last year and its worked out great. Easy delivery and easy to set up.
I didn't actually commit to a brand. I just buy a ~$350 queen sized ~10 inch thick one and it lasts until I don't like the color and get a new one.
I just checked my amazon history, and the last two I bought were Zinus, and Lucid, though I am sure those are no name brands.

Zinus Memory Foam 12 Inch Green Tea Mattress, Queen [link]
I got this mattress for my guest bedroom. It is the first foam mattress I have bought and I was impressed. It's actually on the firm side, which I did not expect.
My husband and I bought this mattress on Amazon for $229 over a year ago. We absolutely love it. We just ordered a 2nd one for the guest room.
This series of mattress is on sale right now: [link]
If you like memory foam, then this is your best bet: [link]
This is a little bit steeper, but I think it looks great and is still cheap compared to a lot of bed frames: [link]
I just got a queen Zinus "Green Tea" memory foam bed. Currently $289 shipped on Amazon:
It is pretty firm. I actually ordered a 3" gel topper because of the firmness (you sleep on top rather than sinking into it), but that proved to be too squishy (the topper leaves an imprint of your body when you roll). I have a 2" topper on another bed & imo that is the right level of squish vs. firmness: (the bed is firm to the point where my side wasn't sinking in & was kind of being compressed instead, like when you lay on thin carpet when watching TV or something)
Also, I picked up their awesome 18" tall frame:
TONS of storage space underneath, easy to setup (2 pieces that screw together & fold in half, lightweight & only requires one person to assemble...literally takes more time to unbox it than put it together), no noise in use, plus with the 12" Zinus bed, it's at a good height to walk up to & fall into bed. You will need a grip sheet underneath, otherwise the bed will slide off pretty easily:
I also recommend getting a waterproof sheet (goes underneath the regular sheets), as any spills will sink directly into the foam mattress & never, ever come out:
I got these Mellanni sheets - they are thin, but feel nice:
Slightly better than the Amazon Basics sheets I have on another bed. I have a plastic bin underneath the bed for storing a spare set of sheets & waterproof sheet (both are washer/dryer-safe). Total comes up to under $600 shipped for a 12" memory foam bed, 2" gel topper, 18" metal bed frame, a non-skid pad for the frame, two sets of sheets, and two waterproof mattress sheets. I was going to get a Casper or Leesa, but those were like $800 just for the bed...I got all that for $200 less, still a pretty hefty investment, but a decent deal. Other than that, you just need some pillows & a duvet or blanket on the top.
The mattress comes vacuum-sealed in a box, so you just undo it from the packaging & let it air out for a day or two to fully decompress. The frame comes in a large but thin box (two frames folded in half with some assembly hardware). I didn't have to mooch a truck off a friend or go to a mattress store or anything...ordered it all off Amazon Prime, showed up in a couple days, put it all together by myself in minutes. Easy peasy. Would definitely order another one!
With a memory foam topper from Costco, best sleep I ever had. So comfortable.
