26. My opinion on Sleep Number...
get a Comfortaire instead.

Comfortaire (IIRC) is the original company that came up with beds with air chambers. Then a couple of execs left and formed Sleep Number. Same product, but Sleep Number spends a lot more on marketing, so they charge more for their bed.

In any event, we've had a Comfortaire for years, and LOVE IT. The mattress never needs turning, has a 20-year warranty, and will never sag (since it has no springs). And dang is it the most comfortable mattress ever (others who have laid on it say things like "I'm never getting up")

Bought it from the company (essentially) for half price on ebay, in the original packaging. It had been shown in a trade show (thus never used--just pushed on or sat on), but once it had been out of the box, they couldn't sell it as new. So we got a bargain. A couple months later I bought another one, for my dad.

Last time I looked they were still selling the trade show ones on ebay.
