I've seen a bed frame I like on Groupon. Supposedly reduced from £700 to £200. I intend on buying a quality mattress elsewhere. Has anyone bought a bed frame off Groupon and if so has the build quality been ok? Has it been sturdy?
Many thanks for your time.

I bought one once about 4 or 5 years ago, King size with a TV mechanism in the foot (no TV but I knew that). Great quality, we've moved house with it and still fine.

I mean... The TV mech didn't work when we got it and it all kicked off with the company saying we broke it and then threats of court at one point but I ended up with a full refund and compensation and kept the bed and fixed the mech myself. All's well that ends well

The specifics of the bed you buy will vary dependant on what the bed is and who the company are that Groupon are representing.. I don't think anyone will have the answer you hope for but the returns/refund/customer service department were great for us.

Thanks for that Chris. The bed is through GRS global, a Glasgow company and I can't seem to find much about them other than their website with their full price beds. Fingers crossed it's ok. Thanks again.

I work for a delivery company that collects so many products returned by unhappy customers who bought goods via groupon so I really would advise you not to buy. Everything that I have picked up has been very poor quality

That doesn't sound good. Thanks for your response.

I agree. I've bought a couple of things in the past, and my experiences and everything I've heard from friends and colleagues has been that never once has someone felt like they really received a £RRP item. I bought some kitchen stuff for about £15 which was about what you would get for £10-15 from a market trader - but in no way shape or form looked like the £40 RRP or whatever it was supposed to be. I feel like their business model is to draw you in with a supposed big saving, and underdeliver with something that 'just about' might be worth what you actually paid, in the hopes that not too many people feel aggrieved enough to try to force a refund.

Thanks for that. I've only ever bought days out and washing powder in bulk from Groupon. Never furniture. It looks great on the photo but I'm sure the old chestnut to be wary of is "you get what you pay for". Thanks for your response.

I purchased our "sort of leather" Sleigh bed complete with a very comfortable memory foam mattress, for an obscenely low price, from an eBay store called IJInteriors ; link to bed here.
Delivery was prompt, the bed was very easy to Allen key together, is very sturdy, and the storage drawers are surprisingly useful. The mattress cover is starting to bobble somewhat, but we've had it for two years now and I chalk that up to having dogs and the fact we wash our bedding every other day.
Obviously we only purchased the one bed, so the rest of their stock could be complete garbage but I very strongly doubt it

Edit= Dead link.

Thanks for that it's interesting to hear positive stories of buying inexpensive furniture.

More than welcome
It's the most comfortable mattress myself and my fiancé have slept on, although being a memory foam unit you do get the issue with excess heat in the (very rare) summer months, which we fixed by using an old duvet cover under the fitted sheet

I bought kingsize crushed velvet bed off Groupon paid £340 for bed but in local shops it was £700 without mattress very easy to assemble an very sturdy me and the wife are more than happy with our purchase.

If you have one near enough I'd look in Ikea. The quality is better, you can look at the stuff and it's not Groupon. I've ordered a couple of things from Groupon goods and they've all gone back due to terrible quality or not being as described.

For things like dishwasher tabs or local deals they can be great as you often know the local business in question, but for furniture and electronics I wouldn't go near them.

Sounds like the one we've been looking at! Thanks for that it's really helpful.

Thanks for that I may take a look. I do buy stuff from Groupon and have always been happy but not yet purchased furniture.

Thanks for that I'll make sure I don't buy a memory foam mattress I can't stand being too hot! Cheers.
