unbiased Zinus Memory Foam Mattress Review, Ratings & Comparisons (Spa Sensations, Night Therapy & More)

Based on 2,849 Actual Consumer Experiences

September 14, 2014

What You Need To Know

THE GOOD: Low price combined with high owner satisfaction make Zinus memory foam mattresses popular.

THE BAD: Firmness options are limited, and the beds may be too firm for some. Expect average longevity at best. An initial chemical-like odor can be present. Support may be inadequate for couples and larger people (200 lbs+).

THE MATTRESS: Zinus Industries sells China-made, value-priced mattresses. Popular Zinus brands are Night Therapy, Spa Sensations and Best Price Mattress. As is true with most value-priced mattresses, at least 25% of Zinus mattress owners use their mattress only temporarily / occasionally as opposed to long term / regularly. The beds often consist of 1 to 3.5 inches of low-density (3.0 lbs/ft) memory foam over support and base foam. The mattresses come compressed and vacuum-sealed.

THE COMPETITION: Learn how Zinus beds compare to competing brands in the memory foam mattress reviews – summary. Also see Zinus vs Tempur-Pedic.

THE RETAILERS: The same (or very similar) Zinus mattress models are sold under different brand names by different retailers. Wal-Mart / walmart.com sells the Spa Sensations brand; Sam's Club / samsclub.com sells the Night Therapy brand; and Amazon currently sells the Best Price Mattress brand and the Sleep Master brand. Additional retailers may also sell the mattresses. (See buying a mattress online: what you should know.)

Zinus (Spa Sensations, Night Therapy & Others) Memory Foam Mattress Ratings

The report below is based on 2,800+ consumer reviews of the various Zinus memory foam mattress brands including Spa Sensations, Night Therapy, and Best Price Mattress. The data was gathered using an unbiased, accurate methodology.

Owner satisfaction B Zinus memory foam mattresses have 82% owner satisfaction (82 out of 100 based on 2849 reviews). The various models tend to rate similar to one another. Owner satisfaction, however, is somewhat higher for people who use the beds temporarily / occasionally as opposed to long term / regularly.

Durability / longevity C- With regular use, the beds should not be expected to have a usable life beyond 4-5 years on average. As the beds age and wear, they will likely become excessively soft and or sag. At least 12% of average-sized owners report sagging / softening occurring within just 1-2 years.
Price / affordability A The beds are priced from $110-$620 depending on model and size (not including optional frame / foundation).
Less pain B Most owners report that the beds provide at least adequate support resulting in average or better pain relief including back, hip and shoulder pain relief. Excessive firmness, however, causes pain for at least 10-15% of owners. (Refer to mattresses and pain relief for general analysis.)
Pressure relief / conformable B The mattresses tend to conform to the contours of a person's body to a moderate degree resulting in above-average pressure point relief.
Easy to move on c The beds tend to be easy to move on. However, as the beds age, the sleeper may sink far into the mattress which may make moving on the bed and getting up off of it somewhat difficult. In addition, heavier owners may have more trouble moving on the bed than lighter owners.
Firmness options D The various models have similar firmness (see below). They are mostly described by owners as either medium-firm or firm. Less than 20% describe their mattress as soft. Excessive firmness is a top owner complaint. Thinner models tend to be somewhat firmer than thicker models.
Back sleep friendly b+ The beds tend to be suitable for back sleepers.
Side sleep friendly c+ The tendency of the mattresses to be more firm than soft may result in less than ideal comfort for some side sleepers.
Stomach sleep friendly b The beds tend to be suitable for stomach sleepers.
Motion isolation A- The mattresses keep motion isolated and, as a result, are couple-friendly in this regard.
No initial odor / off gassing C- About 8% of consumers report that Zinus mattresses give off a noteworthy initial chemical odor. (See memory foam off gassing for more analysis.)
No sleeping hot C+ Less than 6% of consumers report that the beds can sleep hot. MyGel models have a layer of gel-infused memory foam which sleeps about 20% cooler longer than regular memory foam.
Good for sex c+ See mattresses and sex for analysis.
No noise b+ The mattress itself is silent. The foundation or frame, however, may make some noise.
No rotating / flipping B The mattresses are "no flip." Rotating will be needed on occasion to prevent or minimize uneven wear and sagging.
Lightweight C+ The beds weigh no more than average. But they can still be difficult to move and handle especially for one person.
Specifications transparency B Openly disclosing product specifications allows consumers to know what they are paying for and helps them to comparison shop. Zinus openly discloses the thickness of the various layers of its mattresses but is less open about their foam density.
Warranty c- The beds have a 5- to 15-year warranty which is similar to warranties of other value-priced memory foam mattresses. The steel frame / foundation that comes with some models has a 5-year warranty. Some owners report difficulty in filing a claim.
SLTD company rating B- SLTD (Sleep Like The Dead) Rating for Zinus – the manufacturer of Spa Sensations, Night Therapy and other mattress brands – is based on several factors including product ratings by consumers, years in business, customer service, return policy, accuracy of marketing claims, transparency of specifications, warranty, Better Business Bureau (BBB) rating (A+) and rating stability, number of BBB complaints / business size ratio.
