Which of the many available "miracles" are you hoping for?

In all seriousness, I would be a little careful before you rush into anything, especially buying a memory foam bed where you have no idea what is in it (the website is very non specific)

There are many many reviews on their mattresses. Most of them not so good (except the ones that only talk about how they felt at the very beginning). Just google "american signature mattress" and start reading once you get past their own links. Some of them are amazingly naive (people saying how wonderful the store is when their pillowtop fails in a month or two and the store replaces it and then it happens again).

I would personally have serious questions about the value of the mattresses that are listed there. I would also stay away from ANY memory foam where I didn't know EXACTLY where the memory foam came from and what it was. You are walking into a recipe for disappointment. Thicker is not the same as better.

You could do a lot better ... IMO.

If you read a little on this forum, you may also decide that the tempurpedic may also not be that great an option.

Before you think about any memory foam mattress, it would make a lot of sense to do a little research first so you are clear where you are headed. Memory foam is a very different animal and I would not go there until you know exactly why that is the case. Once you are clear on all the plusses and minuses of memory foam and you still decide you want to go there, then it would be worthwhile looking at where the best value may be for you.

There are many choices in memory foam ... both good and bad. If you decide that memory foam is for you, then Tempurpedic is a "safe" choice but you will also pay significantly more than you would for some other high quality memory foam mattresses.
