It might sound silly to buy a chair just for gaming, but consider exactly how much time you or a loved one spends seated at a desk, playing or working at a computer. A lot, right? And even more since many folks started working from home. All that time sitting can really wreak havoc on a person’s back! So a gaming chair is a great investment in wellness and mobility. A health expense, if you will, that can also make gaming a lot more comfortable.
Right now it's pretty affordable, too, if you pick up this racer-style seat over at Amazon — normally it’s $150, but right now you can order one in classy black and white for only $85 with the on-page coupon.
The chair doesn’t ship for free, but for the next week the cost of shipping is down to just $20 — so you’re looking at $105 for the entire package, delivered lickety-split! That's quite a bargain. It's also a great surprise holiday gift (who would ever expect a gaming chair?).
If you’re looking for other gaming products, Amazon Prime is a good add-on, thanks to its selection of free PC games to download and keep, as well as lots of free bonus items for popular titles like Genshin Impact and Destiny 2. That’s all in addition to the benefits you may already know about like free shipping on eligible items and access to all of Amazon’s great streaming content. Prime is normally $13 a month, but you can sign up for a free 30-day trial here to give it a go.
This dynamic chair is currently a best seller on Amazon, with more than 6,000 five-star reviews. As this shopper explains, there's a reason for that: “The parts feel sturdy and the design is better than some more expensive chairs. The wheels roll well on my carpet flooring. The construction holding the back to the base with two hinges as opposed to one I feel gives this chair more leaning capability than some others. I always feel secure no matter what angle I set the back at....”
This woman is “absolutely shocked that I can lean all the way back, completely parallel to the floor, and it doesn’t tip over!! How is that possible?! I'm 5'3" 150 lbs and it fits me comfortably. I don’t care for the lumbar pillow for coding but if I were reclining while gaming or something it would probably be nice.” Another shopper mentions that if feels great during long homework sessions.
You'll need to put this chair together yourself, but customers find it easy to assemble, with one mother saying, “My 14-year-old son and I put it together with just the tool provided, in about 30 minutes. Everything lined up perfectly, no fighting, no cross-threading. The finished assembly was solid and secure.”
And speaking of solid, this big guy says it all: "I was nervous looking at gaming chairs until I saw this and decided to at least give it a shot. I feel super safe in this, it's very well made so far.... I haven't used it an awful lot but I've still sat down and spun around and just existed in this chair, and I absolutely love it. Do yourself the favor of ordering this chair, you're here looking for a decent priced chair that is comfy and reliable and I promise you that this chair will meet all expectations."
