Does anyone know where I can get a cheap bed for my son?

My son is 4 and I finally can afford to get him a good bed. He's already over 3 1/2 feet tall so I was thinking of giving him my queen size bed and I'll get a new one. Unless anyone knows of a place that has inexpensive beds for toddlers? I've looked online and like the loft beds that have slides on them. I figured he'd like to sleep in his own room if he had one of those. But I don't know. Any suggestions would be great.
