Where is the cheapest place to buy 250-312 thread count sheets?

Asked by squirbel (4297points) January 25th, 2009

The ones for 99$ at Bed, Bath & Beyond are too expensive. I want to buy at least 5 sets of solid white sheets.

Maybe Overstock.Com? Or try a hotel linen supplier.

Yhat’s a pretty low thread count. Probably Anna’s Linnens or WalMart

Aside from Overstock, Costco always has great deals on all-cotton, high thread-count sheets. Definitely check them out.

augustlan's avatar has good sales at times.

Also, you could try K-Mart. Don’t laugh! The Martha Stewart line usually has some higher thread count sets.

300 is NOT a high thead count! You can get 1000 thread count sheets. Here’s 310 for $40.00

@Judi Good point…I wasn’t paying much attention, ovbiously. You can definitely get 250 thread counts for way cheaper than $99 – just about anywhere. Do yourself a favor though, and buy higher thread count sets. You won’t regret it!

Don’t buy them from the hotel sales that advertise hotel quality sheets for $25 a set. You get exactly what you pay for. They look great in the package, but are really thin, and have really cheap elastic around the bottom. They feel fine, but my daughter complained that they seem to attract dirt and cat hair.

1000 count thread sheets are essentially a scam. Take a gander:

Shopping with Julian Tomchin : Pulling a Few Threads NYTimes Article

It may sound like a relatively low count, but Mr. Tomchin prefers it. In fact, he advised, “Once you get beyond 400 threads per square inch, be suspicious.” The standard for counting is to add each warp (vertical) and filling (horizontal) thread per square inch. The most that normally fits, he said, is 400, after which the threads are thinner and weaker. Some companies use two- or three-ply threads and multiply the count. “An 800-thread-count sheet made of two-ply yarn should legitimately be relabeled as 400,” he said. “That’s how you get 1,000 threads per square inch: creative counting.”

Building #19. There is one few minutes from Boston, but worth it…just don’t buy any food there ;)

I buy 400 to 800 threadcount sheets for around $50.00 on QVC. You can catch them on sale sometimes from Northern Nights and they are fabulous sheets. NN turned me into a sheet snob.

In my area, it is Ross. They carry overstocked, unsold merchandise. The bedding is the best deal! I will never buy bedding anyplace else.
