W Hotels are known for more than their chic ambiance – they have a successful line of bedding and home products so you can bring that signature W experience home with you. While they aren’t exactly a bargain, right now you can now get them on Ruelala.com at about a 35% discount and only $9.95 in shipping (plus there was no sales tax on my purchase in Florida) until this Wednesday, March 14, 2012.

I’m actually in the market for a new bed, so I figured I’d get a W bed since I sleep on them all the time anyway and find them pretty comfortable (plus they get  good reviews from fellow frequent travelers). WHotelsthestore.com often runs 35% off discounts, but Ruelala.com purchases have lower shipping costs (only $9.95) and you can double dip by purchasing through a mileage mall:

3 miles per dollar spent via the AAdvantageeshoping.com
2 points per dollar through Chase Ultimate Rewards
2 miles per dollar through Skymilesshopping.com

So my $1,199 king-size bed set, which regularly sells for $1,769, got me 3,300 AA miles plus 1,100 American Express points (because I’m working on hitting the $10,000 spend on my new 75,000 point Amex Gold Business Rewards card).

All in all I feel like I got a good deal and earned over 4,400 valuable miles and points in the works. FYI Ruelala.com is an invite only site so you can use my sign-up link and I get $10 in store credit if you make a purchase.
