I sleep in a van down by the river

I'm going down again to sign the lease on an apartment (I hope), take a physical for my new job (as if engineers need to be really fit), and buy a bed. I'll have it delivered on the same day I move in so I won't have to sleep on the floor, I'm just a bit worried because everything I've read about mattress salesmen tells me they're shady, nutty people, a lot like used car salesmen.

How the hell do I buy a mattress? I have no idea. I don't even know how much to pay for one, like, no idea. I think I'll buy it tomorrow, so any advice you think of over the next 24 hours is much appreciated.
