 We're selling our king bed on craigslist. What do you think we should sell it for? It includes a box springs and rails (they don't have the wheels though). This money would be for our Christmas shopping. Thanks so much!

Yes..it does...we bought it like that. We bought it for $150. I was trying to sell it for $100. Should I raise the price? I was thinking about selling it for $80. Or is that too cheap?

It's stained.  It should be thrown out.  That's pretty gross.

I would think $40 maybe $50. I don;t realy know if theres a market for used stained beds though.

I wouldn't but it with stains.... in fact if the mattress is more then 5 years old I would buy it... with ours when we get rid of them we freecycle them... I am just weird about  a used mattress from a stranger it's too personal for me but I would look on craigslist and see what other are selling them for in your case. Not everyone is going to feel the same way I do.

Honestly I wouldnt pay that much for it maybe $75 that's because it has stains on it. So what I would do is price it at $100 & when the person calls they most likely will try to talk you down so if you can get $75 or $80 out of it then that is what you were expecting & they think they talked you down & that they got a good deal! Good Luck

it may be gross but there are people that are really in need and would buy it for a cheap price. King beds price from 400 up! so i'd say try selling it and see what kind of feedback you get. try 150 and if u get no one lower it to 100 or 80
