    My mom bought us two. I hated them and my wife liked them so I stole one back and after I got used to it I liked it so we bought a few more.

    You have 30 days to get your money back from Wal-Mart. If you can't decide if you like the pillow by then...

    Oh, you're the guy I met while working at the docks in Honolulu! You told me you slept up there on Diamond Head every night.

    It was cool watching you body slam that Hawaiian bully who tried to push you around. :lol:

    Methinks you secretly have a thing for the guy...

    I mean who cares what he looks like or whatever as long as the pillow works for you.

    Has she ever found a pillow that didn't mess up her hair?

    Inquiring minds want to know...

    I've used a thousand pillows (maybe an exaggeration) over the years - I'm going on my 4th year with one My Pillow. Perfect? No - but consistently good - keeps its shape. Pop it in the dryer every few months and it plumps back out.

    Thanks for reminding me. I've been meaning to throw mine in the dryer and fluff it up a bit.

    I don't know, but she's always used satin pillowcases, and I think that's supposed to help. She said the "my pillow" wrapped around her head too much.

    I bought one for my wife and one for me. After two years, the dog has been sleeping on them for a while. I think they may have been the worse waste of $84 I’ve ever experienced. Over time mine got hard as a rock and even after washing and drying, according to instructions, it only improved a little for a short while. I could have bought A new pillow every two months, at Walmart, and still not wasted that much money. They buy left over shredded memory foam from mattress makers, for nothing, and pass the con on to you!

    That's what I'm saying. If I didn't own my tiny roach infested studio apt. I'd be homeless. Luckily, I inherited a little money when my Mom died, so I bought the place. So, I have no mortgage, and, fortunately, the maintenance fee and property taxes are low, so that's the only way I can afford to eat and have enough left for cable TV, phone, internet and lights. I've learned to live very frugally, and buy the cheap Walmart house brand for all my household supplies, and exist on cheap Banquet or similarly priced frozen foods.

    certain members get really upset if they perceive smack talk about the My Pillow Guy. They report it immediately.

    I don't even need to do that...I just don't watch the channels that ad shows up on. Advertising is kind of a gamble that way...

    +1 Yup, I think this is sound advice. I know quite a few people with sleep issues that would probably succeed better with this advice than any instant gratification product. I'm glad to read that people are finding success with this pillow, but the next step would be taking @Milspec 's advice.

    I've had one for about a year an a half. Best pillow I've ever used.

    Walmart, eh? I've seen the ads on US television programs and have heard them on the radio here in Alberta. I never thought to check at Walmart up here but I will now. Thanks.

    I bought two of them and didn't like them at all and certainly not worth the money. Plus, I can't stand that guy that sells them. We got two solid foam pillows with the last Tem-Pur pedicure beds we bought and like them much better. I've found that pillows are a very subjective person-specific item and you just have to determine what "you" like.

    I bought a $75 memory foam pillow with my Tempur-pedic mattress and it didn't take long before I didn't like either one. The pillow was a quick fix but the Tempur-pedic I'm stuck with for a while longer. Wish I could trade it even for a handwired Marshall. I'd even throw in the pillow.

    I have been very tempted to get one but I really like a flat pillow so it might not be for me
