AZ MATTRESS OUTLET supports Arizona State University! Student Discount!

Posted on: April 5th, 2014 by Ryan Lee No Comments

AZ MATTRESS OUTLET supports Arizona State University! We are a local family owned and operated business and we know school is not cheap. We have family members in attendance today. Don’t let a lack of sleep affect your student’s education. We offered ASU Student Discounts! Studies show that sleep is critical to students. You are making a huge investment in your education…make a small investment in a bed that will support healthy sleep habits. The following is some information on the costs and potential changes at ASU.
The cost of a college education varies from student to student. Differences such as your major, living arrangements, residency status and other variables mean the cost of your college education might not be identical to your classmates.
Arizona State University has submitted a proposal to the Arizona Board of Regents that includes no tuition increase for resident undergraduate students, and a modest tuition increase of 3 percent for non-resident students during the 2014-2015 academic year.
The proposal reflects ASU’s commitment to providing high-quality education while maintaining accessibility for students. In the last 12 years, ASU has grown from around 50,000 students in 2002 to more than 76,000 students today, while maintaining rigorous traditional admissions requirements of public research universities committed to academic excellence:
• Arizona State University is among the top producers of U.S. Fulbright student scholarship winners, tied at third place in the nation with Princeton University and Rutgers University.
• ASU is ranked 79th in the world by the Academic Ranking of World Universities, 46th among all universities in the United States and 25th among all public U.S. universities in rankings compiled by Shanghai Jiao Tong University.
• Princeton Review ranked ASU one of the country’s top universities for undergraduate education in its 2014 edition of “The Best 378 Colleges.”
• ASU is among the top 100 schools in Washington Monthly magazine’s 2013 national universities ranking, where it placed 7th as a “Best Bang for the Buck” school, and 49th for “Contribution to the Public Good.”
ASU’s tuition and fees have historically cost less than comparable institutions. For the 2013-2014 academic year, costs were $5,313 (18.3 percent) below the average and $5,478 (18.8 percent) less than the median of peer institutions.
The tuition proposal includes a student athletic fee of $75 per semester. The fee was initiated by Undergraduate Student Government (USG) and Graduate and Professional Student Assembly (GPSA) leadership. USG senates and the GPSA unanimously supported the fee. The fee allows for institutional reinvestment in academic support areas for all students, strengthens both graduate and undergraduate academic experiences and enhances student engagement in athletics. Students will have access to all athletic contests at no cost, and will benefit from an enhanced game experience in Sun Devil Stadium, Wells Fargo Arena and other athletic venues.
While the tuition percentage increase proposal is similar across the board for all students, the specific dollar amounts of the proposed increase depend on students’ current base tuition, which is determined by major, the year they entered ASU and the campus at which they study. There will be no new increase in any undergraduate tuition differential, academic program or class fees.

Every Body is Different

Personal preference should ultimately determine what mattress is best. There is no single mattress style or type that works for all people with low back pain. Any mattress that helps someone sleep without pain and stiffness is the best mattress for that individual. Patients with low back pain should choose the mattress that meets their standards for comfort and support and allows them to get a good night’s sleep.

Mattress Sagging?

Posted on: March 5th, 2013 by Ryan Lee No Comments

Know when it’s time to get a new mattress. If an old mattress sags visibly in the middle or is no longer comfortable, it is probably time to purchase a new one. Putting boards under a sagging mattress to keep it from sagging in the middle is only a short-term fix for the sagging; a new mattress is still needed.

Back Support and Comfort

Posted on: March 5th, 2013 by Ryan Lee No Comments

Achieve a balance between back support and comfort. Overall comfort while sleeping on the mattress is equally important as sufficient back support. Sleeping on a mattress that is too firm can cause aches and pains on pressure points. A medium-firm mattress may be more comfortable because it allows the shoulder and hips to sink in slightly. Patients who want a firmer mattress for back support can get one with thicker padding for greater comfort.

Can a Mattress Affect Academic Performance?

Tired boy student We believe it does. If you are a student or a parent of a student the importance of a good night’s sleep before a school day is extremely important. It is known that without a restful night sleep we can not focus or pay attention as well. If you or your child is tossing and turning all night and not waking feeling refreshed a new mattress could make an academic difference. It is important that you choose the right kind of mattress for how you or your child sleeps.

Memory Foam mattresses are extremely popular right now and provide a much better support than standard mattresses. Many memory Foam mattress models are gel-infused which provide you with a cooler sleeping surface. We have seen neck pain, back pain, and leg pain drastically reduced with memory foam mattress purchased by our customers.

Adjustable Beds are great for any situation and are often seen as a luxury item. If you or your child have allergies or illness that result from sinus issues an adjustable bed could be a great fit. Adjustable mattresses allow for the head to be elevated allowing drainage and just a better night’s sleep. It allows you to adjust the elevation easier than stacking up pillows and using risers.

Whichever type of mattress type you choose make sure you lay on the mattress in the store in the same position that you sleep for at least 15 minutes to an hour. This will give you a better idea if the mattress is for you or not.

What goes into a Mattress

Posted on: December 20th, 2012 by Ryan Lee No Comments

Mattresses that are well-made must contain several layers designed both to give the mattress support and keep the owner comfortable. Generally, a mattress has either an inner spring core or contains materials that are meant to cushion the owner. When the mattress has coils, it also needs insulator pads that keep the upholstery from coming in contact with the springs. There is also polyester fiberfill in the top layers. There are many other components that are added to the mattress as it becomes more expensive as a way to make the mattress more comfortable.

The innersprings are usually made by a company that specializes in springs. The springs are connected to each other with wire. Mattresses generally have under a thousand coils and the coils number at least in the hundreds, though the number of coils goes up or down depending on the mattress brand.

An insulator layer is created using wire mesh made up of different fibers. The insulator is attached to the innerspring by hand. It also has a cushioning layer that has a large impact on the comfort of the mattress. The mattress will have more cushioning layers if it is of higher quality, which influences how comfortable the mattress is. Regardless of the number of layers, the very top layer is the quilt. The quilt has light foam and attaches directly to the cover of the mattress.

As can be inferred by the design, the decorative aspects of the mattress are sewn on. Rather than being hand sewn, the decorative elements are sewn using a quilting machine. The side handles must also be sewn on the mattress.

Mattresses have a connecting panel that is stapled to the mattress. The panels are stitched to each other using a border tape. As the mattress is stitched together, the pillowtop is usually applied, if the mattress has a pillowtop at all. The stitching is performed using a machine designed specifically for this purpose by tape edge operators.

The foundation (box spring) part of the mattress is made of a wooden or metal frame. The frame has either slats or metal coils. The foundation has a fabric cover that surrounds the foundation.

How to Keep your Mattress Looking Like New

Purchasing a quality mattress is an investment. Taking care of your mattress is a great way to not only protect your investment but to stay healthy.

Protect It

Mattress protectors fit around the entire mattress which protects it from dust, stains, spills, and accidents. Mattress protectors can be purchased for under $100 and is a great way to insure that your mattress look like new longer. If you have children, a mattress protector can protect the mattress from bed-wetting and other accidents.

Clean It

In additional to a mattress protector it is important to keep the mattress clean. Following the manufacturer’s instructions and regularly vacuuming the mattress will keep it looking like new.

 

Set it Up Properly

Cleaning the mattress and using a mattress protector will help keep the look of the mattress. You also need to make sure your foundation (box springs) are in good shape as well as a bed frame that offers proper support for the size of your mattress. Bed frames are no expensive and keeps your bed off the floor.

Mattress Buyer Tips

Posted on: September 7th, 2012 by Ryan Lee No Comments

Buying a new mattress can be a frightening experience. Mattresses are expensive and a poor purchase can lead to a mattress that causes back pain or prevents the owner from getting a good night’s rest.

 How to Find a Durable Mattress

Another concern mattress buyers have is how long the mattress will last. Luckily, there are ways to determine how long the mattress will last. The weight of the mattress is one way to determine the mattress durability. While a heavier mattress might be harder to carry around, it will also be more durable and capable of holding up against regular use over a long period.

Avoiding Uncomfortable Mattresses

Customers should try the mattress before they buy it to make sure that it is comfortable enough to use. However, they should also go one step further and make sure that the company provides customers with a 30 day trial period. It takes awhile for a mattress to be broken in and it also takes awhile for the mattress owner to become accustomed to the mattress. Having a trial period makes it possible for mattress owners to determine whether they want to keep the mattress.

People who have recurring back problems should consider talking to their doctor before purchasing a mattress. A doctor can give patients a sense of what mattress they should buy.The firmest mattress is not always necessarily the best mattress for an individual’s back. Medium mattresses are often better for those with lower back pain, but a physician will be able to provide better insight into the best option.

If the mattress doesn’t work out, the mattress owner will need to get a new one. However, that will become much more expensive when the mattress has stains on it. The easiest way to avoid stains is to purchase a water proof mattress protector.

Saving Money on Mattresses

Generally, purchasing a mattress is very expensive and buying a low-cost mattress increases the chances that it will not last in the long-term. However, there are ways that mattress buyers can save money. One approach is to buy a boxspring that is low-profile. This means that the boxspring will be closer to the ground. Another way to save money is to avoid buying a mattress pad, which is not beneficial.Getting the best value for the money may require trying several mattresses to determine which mattress is the cheapest while also being the most comfortable.

There are so many mattress options that it can become easy to get confused and choose an overpriced and uncomfortable mattress. However, armed with the right information, most buyers can discover a mattress that provides optimal comfort.
