The other day, a colleague of ours was telling us that her daughter, a rising college freshman, told her that everyone was getting Tempur-Pedic mattress toppers. College dorm-room mattresses are indeed famously uncomfortable, but if you’d rather not spend almost $200 on a hunk of foam for your fickle 18-year-old, and are looking for something a few steps above an egg crate, luckily this comfortable-seeming down-alternative mattress topper with tons of excellent reviews is on sale (today only) as part of a larger Royal Hotel linens sale on Amazon. Says one happy reviewer: “My cat Meatball absolutely loves it, too. He’s been sleeping all over it ever since I put it on my bed … Meatball can’t get enough of its fluffy softness.” Incidentally, for more mattress toppers we like, as recommended by experts, click here.
