We’ve got good news for anybody looking to up their mattress game without breaking his or her budget. Amazon is currently offering one of their top-rated memory foam mattresses, for more than $100 off the list price (which is already pretty low, making a standard Queen come in at about $180).

A bestseller for a reason, the Zinus Memory Foam 12 Inch Green Tea Mattress holds an almost five-star average rating out of over 13,000 customer reviews. But wait, what’s this about green tea? It made us go “huh?”, too, but according to the manufacturer, added green tea extract helps to maintain the freshness of the mattress over time, as well as minimize the unpleasant smell of memory foam.

And while you might find a handful of other memory foam mattresses on sale for a similar low price point, they’re often quite thin. At 12 inches, this high-density foam mattress comps with more expensive bed in a box type offerings.

Something of note beyond the mattress features itself are the over 13,000 reviews (11k of which are 4 stars and above).

Here’s what customer Jessicam had to say in her five-star review of the mattress:

“I was a bit skeptical about buying a mattress in a box. The first night we got it, we ignored the directions to let it sit for 48 hours, and we slept on it. Horrible mistake. Do yourself a favor, and let it sit for the recommended time. The second night after it had time to expand, I laid down, and the next thing I knew, it was morning. I have never slept as good as I am sleeping now in my life. We had a $1,000 Sealy and every night we had it, I woke up numerous times. This mattress is worth every penny. I never knew how glorious it was to have a great night of comfortable, uninterrupted sleep.

Yes, it had a smell, but the directions clearly state that the mattress will smell for a couple of days. The smell was gone after about a week.”

Still not sold? This comfy mattress comes with a 10-year warranty so you don’t have to worry about sending it back if it turns out it isn’t your cup of tea. And currently listed at nearly 40% off the SRP, you can’t really go wrong with a quality mattress for under $200.
