Zinus Mattress Ratings

The ratings below are based on 3,800+ consumer reviews of the various Zinus mattresses. The data was gathered using an unbiased, accurate methodology.

Zinus FOAM mattresses consist of 1" to 3.5" of low-density (3.0 lbs/ft) memory foam over support and base foam. Zinus foam mattresses include brands Spa Sensations, Night Therapy, Sleep Master, Best Price Mattress.
Zinus SPRING mattresses mostly consist of 1" to 5" of regular foam over pocket coils. Zinus spring mattresses include brands Slumber 1, Sleep Master, Spa Sensations, Night Therapy.

FOAM Models SPRING Models  
Owner satis- faction for child use or limited adult use B+ B+ Zinus mattresses – like others in its price range – are used at least 30% of the time only occasionally / temporarily or by children. When used in this way, Zinus mattresses overall have 85% owner satisfaction.
Owner satis- faction for regular adult use C- D+ Owner experience data regarding long-term regular use of Zinus mattresses is limited. Available data suggests satisfaction is good initially but falls at a higher-than-average rate with age / wear. Zinus beds likely have no higher than 70% owner satisfaction when used by average-sized adults regularly. Satisfaction is lower for large owners (200+ lbs).
Durability / longevity D+ D Based on limited available data, owners should not expect more than a 4-5 year lifespan on average with regular adult use. Foam models may have somewhat better longevity than spring models.
Per- ceived quality C+ D+ Zinus foam mattress models tend to be regarded somewhat better on this issue than spring models, for which about 15% of owners describe as "flimsy."
Price A- A The beds are priced from $110-$620 depending on model and size (not including optional frame / foundation which can add $70-$250). Zinus spring mattresses overall tend to be about 8% cheaper than Zinus foam models of equal thickness.
Value A- A- Owners praise Zinus mattresses for their value more than any other attribute.
Less (back) pain B- B- Most owners report that the beds provide at least adequate support resulting in average or better pain relief, including back pain relief. (See mattresses and pain relief for general analysis.)
Pressure relief B- C- The foam mattress models tend to conform to the contours of a person's body to a moderate degree resulting in above-average pressure point relief. Excessive firmness and pressure, however, causes pain for about 12% of owners.
Easy to move on c B+ As the beds age, the sleeper (especially heavier ones) may sink far into the mattress which can make moving on the bed and getting up off of it somewhat difficult.
Edge support D+ d All models have below average edge support. Support may be inadequate for lying or sitting near the edge of the bed, especially for heavier people.
Firmness options D D+ The various models have mostly similar firmness. They tend to be 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 firmest.
Back sleep friendly b+ B+ The beds with their medium-to-firm firmness tend to be suitable for back sleepers.
Side sleep friendly c- C- The often high firmness of the beds may result in less than ideal comfort for some side sleepers.
Stomach sleep friendly B- B- The beds tend to be suitable for stomach / front sleepers.
Motion isolation B+ B The beds keep motion isolated to a significant degree and, therefore, are couple-friendly in this regard.
Couple friendly C C Data suggests that while the beds have above-average motion isolation, they may lack strength to properly support two people especially over the long term.
No initial odor / off gassing C- B- Zinus foam models are 2 to 3 times more likely to off gas than the spring models. About 8% of foam model owners report a significant problem. (See memory foam off gassing for more analysis.)
No sleeping hot C B Foam models are more likely to retain heat than spring models. Some foam models have a layer of gel-infused foam which sleeps about 20% cooler longer than regular foam.
Large person friendly D D- Large people (200+ lbs) should likely avoid Zinus beds – especially models less than 10" thick – because they may not provide adequate support.
Good for sex c+ B- See mattresses and sex for analysis.
No noise b+ D+ Foam models are almost entirely silent, while about 5% of spring model owners report noise coming from the coils. These owners are often of large size.
Low mainten- ance B B- The mattresses are "no flip." Rotating will be needed on occasion to minimize uneven wear and sagging.
Light- weight B- C+ Depending on model and size, the mattresses weigh 30-135 lbs. Spring models overall tend to weigh at least 10% more than foam models of equal thickness.
Discloses specs B C Disclosing mattress specifications allows consumers to know what they are paying for and helps them comparison shop. Spec disclosure can vary by Zinus brand. Sleep Master tends to provide the most info.
Warranty c- D+ Foam beds have a 5- to 15-year warranty, while spring beds have a 5-10-year. This is similar to warranties of other value-priced mattresses. The steel frame / foundation that comes with some models has a 5-year warranty. Filing a claim is difficult say the majority of owners that have tried. (See mattress warranties: what you should know.)
Better Business Bureau rating A+ Zinus, Inc. has an A+ rating with the BBB. There have been 13 complaints filed against the company in the past three years. This number is somewhat below average for a mattress company of its size.
SLTD company rating B SLTD (Sleep Like The Dead) company rating for Zinus, Inc. is based on several factors including product ratings by consumers, years in business, customer service, transparency of specifications, warranty, BBB rating and rating stability, number of BBB complaints / business size ratio.
