Sleepy’s Partners with MyRegistry.com

Have you ever heard of MyRegistry.com?  It’s this great website that you can sign-up for, for free and create a universal gift registry.  MyRegistry.com is very cool because you can literally put anything you desire on your simple-to-access registry list.  And when I say anything, I mean anything from anywhere, which is why I am so excited to announce that Sleepy’s the Mattress Professionals and MyRegistry.com have partnered up!

You’re about to embark on a lifelong journey with your new partner, what better way to celebrate that than with a new mattress that you both can call your very own as newlyweds.  The partnership between Sleepy’s and MyRegistry.com makes it very easy for you to add a new mattress, or new pillows, or new sheets, or any bedding essentials, to your gift registry.  With MyRegistry.com’s Cash Gift Fund, the program allows several people to make “donations” towards higher ticketed items, such as a new mattress, which I think is a fabulous idea.

As you and your soon-to-be-spouse start filling up your gift registry with MyRegistry.com, don’t forget to visit your local Sleepy’s showroom to test out mattresses together so that you’ll know which mattress you will want to put on your registry.  Once you have found the perfect mattress to share with your future spouse, head over to Sleepys.com and search for that exact mattress.  Once you find it, you will see a button that says “Add to MyRegistry,” which is under the “Add to Cart” and “Add to Wish List” buttons that will automatically add the mattress on to your gift registry.

You haven’t created a registry on MyRegistry.com yet, you say?  Not a problem, visiting Sleepys.com you’ll find all the links you need to follow to create, find or update a registry.  Simplicity is one of the many aspects of MyRegistry.com.  They have many different options for you to share your registry with family and friends.  You can use Facebook integration to share on your profile; you can also create E-cards, links and even printable cards to send out the information as well.

Now, I’ve never been married or engaged so I’m not sure what it’s like going to a store to put together a registry, but I’m not even going to consider that, now knowing that MyRegistry.com gives me access to create a registry with products from Sleepy’s and all other stores from the comfort of home (because we all know how much I dislike going out to shop).  I can imagine that preparing for a wedding can be a stressful time, so why not make one step easier and visit Sleepys.com to set up your gift registration all in one spot.

Sleepy’s Black Friday Sale

Is it me, or do the holidays seem to come earlier and earlier each year?  The internet is already buzzing about Black Friday deals, which means Thanksgiving is already done and Christmas is right around the corner.  With internet searches already on the rise for 2011 Black Friday deals, I’m here to let you know that Sleepy’s will be offering you the best deals this upcoming Black Friday.

I suggest visiting your local Sleepy’s showroom to test out mattresses so that you’ll be able to decide on a mattress by the time our amazing Black Friday deals roll out.  You won’t want to miss any of our great deals for Black Friday!  Make sure you keep checking Sleepys.com as well as right here on Sleepysblog.com so that you get to hear about our Black Friday events before anyone else.

I’ve never gone out and taken advantage of Black Friday sales, I think it’s because I love sleep more than I love shopping.  I can barely stand going to the mall on a regular day, so I can’t even imagine what it would be like on Black Friday.  But, maybe after you get a new mattress from Sleepy’s, you’ll love sleep as much as I do and won’t want to get out of bed next Black Friday (I said maybe)!

Snow Birds and Their Mattresses

Summer has come and gone, the fall foliage will peak in no time, and then before you know it, old man winter will be knocking at our doors.  You may still have the sand between your toes, but soon enough you’ll be applying layers of clothing rather than sunscreen.  While most of us will soon be stocking up on shovels and melting salt, many of the retired and senior citizens will be flocking the airlines and migrating to the warmer weather for the better of the next six to seven months. 

Winter is coming, don't get left behind!

Appropriately named the “Snow Birds,” these older generations have the right idea by heading to popular warm destinations where they may have bought a second home to wait out the wicked winter conditions of the Northeast.  Living in a secondary home shouldn’t mean sleeping on a lower quality mattress.  Sleep is always important, no matter where you are staying. 

Important questions that these snow birds should ask themselves upon arriving at their warmer weather home, “How do I sleep on this mattress?  How comfortable is this mattress?” And most importantly, “How long ago did I buy this mattress?”  Spending almost half the year on an old, unsupportive mattress does no good for the body or the mind.  Being that the snow birds are comprised of older generations, it is very likely that since the last time that they bought the mattress for their secondary home (or even since the last time that they have stayed there) that their bodies have changed, which means that their old mattress won’t comfortably support them for a great night’s sleep.  As we age, our bodies lose muscle mass and become more fragile, therefore our needs from our mattress will change more frequently than the 10+ years the mattress can last. 

Sleepy’s, the Mattress Professionals, is here to take care of the snow birds’ every need.  With over 700 locations across the Northeast, you can stop in to any of our showrooms to test which mattress works perfectly for you.  Sleepy’s delivers to all 50 states, so the new mattress that you pick out can easily be delivered to your home in the warmer destinations.  We will also remove your old mattress and install your new mattress upon delivery.  With loyal, quality mattress brands such as Simmons, Sealy, Serta and My Side (just to name a few), Sleepy’s is definitely the most trusted name in mattresses, providing you the opportunity to find the best mattress for you and that fits your budget.

The right mattress compliments a great night's sleep.

Sleep is always an essential need, no matter what age you are.  Not getting eight hours of quality sleep can lead to high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes and depression.  To fully enjoy your golden years, you’ll want to be getting a great night’s sleep every night on a mattress that best suits your comfort needs.  Even if it’s the mattress in your second home in that warm destination, you should make sure that you have the proper mattress for the months that you’ll be spending on it while dreaming of sunsets on the beach and how great it feels to not shovel snow. 

I'm definitely going to be a snow bird when I retire.

Sleepy’s On Extreme Makeover: Home Edition

As part of its ongoing  Bedder Days effort to ensure people are getting a great night’s sleep, Sleepy’s has joined forces with the ABC hit show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, and made a donation to provide a family in need with brand new mattresses.  The Springfield, Massachusetts family suffered a devastating loss when their 11-year old son took his own life after falling victim to bullying at school.                           

The grief stricken family has not slept in their bedrooms (one of which was where their son was found), and have been sleeping on couches and rollaway beds for the past two years.  In an attempt to provide this family with restful, supportive and well-deserved sleep, Sleepy’s has provided six new mattresses for the children, mother and grandmother who all live in the home together.

The ninth season of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition begins Sunday September 25th at 8/7 central on ABC.  Be on the lookout later this fall for the episode in which Sleepy’s provides a mattress donation to the Massachusetts family.  Bedder Days partners with service organizations to bring basic bedding to people in need.
