How much does JUST a box spring cost?

How much does JUST a box spring cost?

Now THAT is a loaded question! 


The answer should be simple, right? 


Well, how much does it cost to BUILD a box spring (aka foundation) at the factory? 

(The answer is about fifty bucks: $50.) 


We just pass through that same price of $50. No markup. No margin. No profit. We absorb the cost to pickup & store the foundations. 


Why? Well, because the rest of the industry seems determined to double the cost of everything. They multiply cost by 2-point-something. That is their magic formula. COST times 2.4x or 2.6x seems to be the acceptable market margin. On a box spring! 

People can sense when they are being gouged. They know it.

Community Furnishings: $50 

Fifty. Cost-pass-through. We buy at $50 from the factory and sell at $50 to the public. 

Why give it away?

Because then people relax and listen better to what our mattresses cost. They know we are not out to make a buck from every angle. All proceeds go to effective world evangelism anyway. 


Some might be thinking: "But won't people just take advantage of you? I mean buy the mattress elsewhere and come get a factory-cost foundation / box from you guys?"

Well, that would be fine actually. We are confident our mattress quality and price point is worthy of comparing.
