Penn and Teller did an episode of their "Bull****!" on Showtime several years back on the sleep industry and how they try to convince people that they need to spend incredible amounts of money on beds. I was intending to link to it, but apparently the episode was deleted off of Youtube. But if you can find someplace to see it, I definitely recommend it.

Based on what I understand about beds, just find any inexpensive bed and mattress combination that feels comfortable to you (some people can get by with a simple mattress on a hardwood floor). If you have special medical needs (like my mom did) then it might be worth going into the premium price range. But don't start looking for a bed that can cure ailments that you don't actually have.
