I found a great deal here on a name brand queen size mattress and box spring. They have a large selection of mattresses both with and without the pillow tops. The salesperson helped me find a firm mattress that should last me for a few years. The down side of the pillow top is that you cannot flip the mattress when you start to feel the dents. They do offer a return policy if you get home and you don't like the way the springs feel.
