Hubby and I have gotten used to 275+ thread count sheets, but HATE the sateen ones. They pill horribly and then they're worse than cheap sheets. Try TJMaxx, they usually have good selections on more expensive sheets. Their prices are better than the West Point store in Allen, we were just there and decided we would go back to TJMaxx. The $5 sheets in Allen are not necessarily 250 thread count, it's not marked on the package anywhere. I would rather pay $10 and know what I'm getting!
