Recommendation for good quality but cheap down comforter??

I am looking to buy a good down comforter. I am interested in real down comforter and not the down alternative.

I checked around in stores like Macys and Bed, Bath & Beyond, but even with coupons and sale, I did't find any good ones for <100$.

On amazon, there are a couple of down comforters which cost less than 100$, but after seeing these fake/negative reviews, I would stay away - http://www.amazon.com/review/R3S3...hisHelpful

I also checked sites like overstock.com and smartbargains.com. But I seriously doubt the glowing all positive 5 * reviews there.

So where is the best place to find a good down comforter. I have a budget of 100-120$ max.

We have a king size down duvet from IKEA and I love it. We've been very happy with it. I use a duvet cover on it but I've also washed it in my front loader with no problems. We've had it about 8 years now and I have absolutely no complaints. I don't recall how much it was when we bought it...maybe $50-$60ish? It was definately less than $75. Prices are probably a little higher now but I'd definately recommend them as a place to consider.

I did buy twin size down duvets for my kids a few years back from IKEA too, and they were really inexpensive...they may originally have been $20 but they were marked down when I bought them.

Obviously this doesn't help you if you don't have an IKEA near you.

Thanks. I will go to Ikea to check out today. I am also going to check out Marshall's Home goods for comparison.

+1 for ikea. you need to goto the store, since the catalog and maybe even online doesnt show the entire options available. I just picked up a twin size down for $25 last week for my daughter. it was rated at 3/5 warmth (ikea scale), and i think it's gonna be a bit too warm for my daugher, who's like a little furnace at night.

Target

$39.99 - Room Essentials - K size - 100% White Duck Down

I actually have the down alternative which is only 70% but I bought the alternative on purpose. My sisters bed has a really expensive 100% goose or duck or whatever bird it is down comforter and that thing gets really hot. Now I understand her craziness to be buried in it and still want the A/C on with the fan. Granted, it's winter months now so you will want more warmth but even in my alternative I'm at a very comfortable temperature every night.I think the fact that these are polyester (read - cheap) actually provide the benefit of trapping the air (cotton is more breathable) so what you don't get in feathers you actually make up for in material (which you wouldn't think is a positive in this case) as far as functionality goes. Also, these specific ones from room essentials look flat and flimsy. They're not 'poofy' but they do get the job done. If you're wanting something for show on top of comfort then look elsewhere.
