Thumbs up Buying Sheraton Bed (EUROPE - ITALY) from Sheraton Hotel Store

Been looking to buy a Sheraton Bed for some time and at the moment they have a deal - spend 5000€ - save 2000€

My Q is simple - is there likely to be a better offer at Xmas / New Year? Been looking for some months and this is a good deal (but way more expensive than from US) - the really annoying thing is paying 900€ in shipping on top which is massive in my view

Has anybody bought recently from Sheraton Hotel Store? Is service OK in Europe? Should I wait for a potentially better deal / what's been the best deal over the years?


Many thanks if someone can help

Spend 5000€ - save 2000€, so the bed cost 3000€ plus 900€ shipping? That sounds way too expensive for a Sheraton Sweet Sleeper Bed. I certainly wouldn't pay that much.

Correct. 200x200 all in with everything. Its steep but I love the bed. (Roughly) 5000€ + 900€ - 2000€ is ball park calculation and it really is the shipping that annoys me

Hotels at Home is the company that sells merchandise for Marriott. It appears that their European office is in Paris. Perhaps contacting them directly could help.

Don’t forget that European customs may assess import duties and VAT on top of the price during customs clearance.

That would of be another 30% lol.
Op: Get a Danish Jensen bed and your bed will be even better than any of Marriott's. I've never looked back after I got my Jensen signature J6. No bed in any hotel can beat my bed

Another thing to look at is Marriott gift cards. They can be used at the Marriott shop. The recent 25% off gift cards would have been a nice extra discount. Maybe they will do it again.

The beds are sold and sent from France, so no extra VAT or duties applicable unless you are outside the EU.

To see if the Sheraton bed has a history of going on sale, you can archive.org to visit previous snapshots of the page and check the price that way. I don't have enough posts to paste the link, but if you go to archive(dot)org and search for sheratonstore(dot)com, you should be able to see previous versions of the page. It takes a little patience as the archive can be slow. The old adage that past results don't equal future performance definitely applies, but at least you can understand the general sales cycles and use that to predict if the price will go down in the future.

Having watched their sales regularly (on the US website) and just double checked my email, I'd note the following promotions that you can interpret how you wish, but seems to be at least 30% as a standard expectation, who knows with COVID what that could mean this year:
  • 30% off, approximately every 6 months in recent years
  • Fixed 1500USD off beds - every 2 months, recently
  • Smaller amounts: 20-25%, free shipping, regularly
  • Christmas 2019: 30% off / USD750 discount on bed
  • Christmas 2018: 30% off
  • Christmas 2017: 35% off
  • Christmas 2016: 35% off
Depending on status, you can guarantee a 40% discount on your 50 nights benefit (noting you may have just got promotion nights towards this in the past day or two): Save 40% on a bed from your favorite hotel brand.
