In fact, you can’t even buy the 12” version at Zinus because it has sold out, making Amazon’s offer even more of a head-turner as it currently has stock. This aptly named Zinus is made using green tea to keep your mattress fresh, plus ActivCharcoal microparticles to wick away moisture and odors.
We added the Zinus to our best mattress guide because its good value for the money, with three separate layers of pressure relieving foam to contour to your body. The Zinus isn’t perfect by any stretch, but it has decent edge support and minimal motion transfer. So if you need to upgrade on a very tight budget, this Presidents’ Day mattress sale offer is worth a look.

As we explain in our Zinus Green Tea memory Foam Mattress review, this would make a decent if unexciting choice for anyone looking to swap out their guest room mattress for a very small cost, or for those needing a new main mattress for much less than a mid-range mattress costs. We tested the 10” version and found it to be comfortable and supportive, so we can imagine that increases with the taller size.
The foam is CertiPUR® US Certified, which is reassuring, while the conforming, body-hug feel it creates should lead to less pressure on high impact points such as your back, shoulders and hips. We’re not sure how long the 12” queen size version will be reduced to $279.99 at Amazon, so if you’re interested, take a look sooner rather than later to avoid missing out on this Presidents' Day sale.
