At least five of you were fans of my not-ready-for-HGTV house-hunting series with the cheeky, but not very SEO-savvy name. Turns out every time I sent my husband a video link, it couldn’t get past his company’s firewall due to its name. Also, duh, we bought a house. So series has taken a turn. Now that we’re attempting to make our outdated house into a dream home the vlog series is to be know as the Reluctant Renovator. Take a peek at our first episode and read below for details about the Serta iComfort Sleep System giveaway
In May, I had the opportunity to visit Serta headquarters and get a behind-the-scenes glimpse of what goes into a quality mattress. I also got the chance to try out a dreamy iComfort Sleep System. It’s cool and comfortable. And even though it’s a foam system, it comes with a variety of firmness levels. So Serta has basically taken all the reasons I avoided foam mattress systems (the heat, the overwhelming squishiness) and thrown them out the door.
As I said in the video above, I have literally been dreaming of the day I receive mine. Sadly, that day is
weeks months away.
With their just-in-time production methods, they don’t have one simply sitting around with my name on it, but they’ll make and send my sleep system when
I’m my bedroom is ready. (I’m am partial to the Genius model, queen size, FWIW).
Even better, they are offering you one, too!
One lucky reader is going to win the icomfort Sleep System of her (his?) choice, as well. The Serta folks are sparing no expense, so if you want a king system with motion perfect adjustable base, it’s yours for the asking. And to be clear, the adjustable base is not just for the senior set, it’s pure awesome if you like to rest with your feet up, or recline and read without having to stuff a dozen pillows around to support you.
I am excited to be able to pass along such a great prize and it’s not difficult to enter.
I’m going to keep in simple:
1. (required) Comment once on this blog by 11:50 PM CST on Thursday July 7, 2011 for a basic entry. Let me know why you’d like a new mattress. Make sure I have a way to contact you!
You can also have up to five optional extra entries; I need a separate comment for each of these items, so I can count each one as an extra entry:
