Costco has the great warranty but they have limited choices. Mattresses aren't like coffeemakers, they would be a pain in the butt to return to the store, no matter how generous the warranty. There is also no way of testing out the mattress in Costco because they are all stacked side by side.
I would definitely stay away from the Brick and Sleep Country. If you want to buy from a department store, make sure you buy it at 50% off, or heavily discounted, anyway. They tend to mark up the price of all sets and then have promos on a select few week after week...I hate that practice, btw.

I looked over their website last night, and they mention that the 50% off stuff is mattress industry is bs, so I liked their honest approach. And the fact they have A+ rating with BBB made me choose them.
My visit today didn't take more than 20 minutes lol. I walked in at 5:40pm - place closes at 6pm on Saturdays. Damn was it ever fast and easy. I didn't even have to wait to take it home. Drove my car to the back, they threw the mattress and box spring on the roof of my coupe, tied it down with some rope they provided. I drove it home without a hitch, got it off the roof and into house easily, and tonight I'm sleeping on it.
Talked to the sales rep about the 10 year warranty - said I don't have to worry about having a bed-frame or anything like that. Just need to make sure the mattress doesn't have any visible stains when making a warranty claim - tried to sell me the $99 mattress protector, but I resisted. I figure if I need to make warranty claim, I'll pay a company to come in and clean any stains.
Might be going back tomorrow to get the mattress protector though... Funny thing - when I was throwing out old mattress, found it and the box-spring were covered in MOLD. Lots and lots of m. Disgusting! Can't believe we've been sleeping on that. We might have developed illnesses from it because wife and I have been having health issues. We live in a basement unit in a triplex, and I think the mold growing in our washroom might have spread to our bedroom. So a mattress protector - if it protects from mold, I'll have to get it. Otherwise, no way I'll be able to make a warranty claim couple years from now.
