If you've ever gone shopping for a couch, you know firsthand how expensive they can get. Sure, it's where you spend most of your time (usually while bingeing Netflix), but that doesn't mean you want to spend your entire paycheck on it. But how do you find options with sturdy upholstery, supreme comfort, and style points that won't break the bank? You read the reviews. Luckily, we did the scouring, price filtering, and browsing for you. All of these options are reliable, comfortable, and punch in at $500 or less.

Just because you're out of your college futon days, doesn't mean you can deny the practicality of a sofa bed for out-of-town guests. This nifty convertible sofa offers a sleek velvet look, with a comfortable lay-flat option for overnighters.
