Investing in a massage chair may seem like a daunting task because a quality massage chair that has all the options you want can be very expensive. Fortunately there are actually several options for purchasing a cheap massage chair. With a little bit of patience and commitment to searching for the best deal, you can easily find the best massage chair to fit your needs and desires at a price that works for you.
When looking for the best deals, you should first decide exactly which options and features you want from your massage chair. Choosing a chair that has only one purpose, such as a Shiatsu massage technique without extra options like heat settings, body scanning, varying massage types, and zero gravity will dramatically reduce the cost of your chair.
Another way to find a massage chair at a a really low price is to look for used options. Stores like Brookstone, who specialize in selling all kinds of massage chairs, often run really great sales for ‘gently’ used or refurbished massage chairs. Brookstone takes great care to certify their pre-owned chairs. These refurbished chairs are thoroughly checked and tested by factory certified technicians, who us a fifty point inspection to ensure that the chair is still performing at the most optimal level.
The chairs are all also sanitized and any worn parts are replaced with new ones when necessary. And even though you would be purchasing a pre-owned massage chair, you still have the option to return it within sixty days if you are not happy with the chair once you receive it. Refurbished massage chairs that are sold by Brookstone are typically fifty percent less, if not more, than the original price of a brand new massage chair. You can find these refurbished massage chairs on their website, or you can check your local Brookstone store front for any refurbished massage chairs that they may have in stock.
Ebay is another great online resource to find a cheap massage chair. Since, you purchase products on Ebay through an auction buying style, there is a ton of potential for getting a massage chair at a much lower price than you would pay on a regular website or in a physical store. You just need to make sure you thoroughly check the reviews and product information for the massage chair you plan on bidding on, before you place a bid. Also, set a limit for how much money you want to spend. It is easy to get caught up in the bidding process, and you may end up spending more money than you meant to.
So, pick a chair, research it, and most importantly don’t be afraid to walk away from the auction if you have to go above your price range.
Wait For Sales
Another way to find a cheap massage chair is to exert a little patience and wait for the perfect sale. If you are looking for a massage chair online at different online retailers, you can sign up for their weekly email newsletters which will often alert you to any sales they may have coming up. Also, the fall and winter holidays are a great time to make large purchases like a massage chair because many retailers offer huge discounts to accommodate shoppers looking for gifts.
Cut Out The Middleman
You can always cut out the middleman(i.e. the retailer) and purchase your massage chair from a whole seller/whole sale website. This may not be the easiest option, and you should definitely make sure that the whole seller you are choosing to purchase from is a legitimate business. But the potential for finding a massage chair at an incredibly low price is huge when looking into whole sellers. Factory direct wholesale business are able to sell massage chairs at dramatically reduced prices. You should be able to easily find a cheap massage chair that is sixty to seventy percent less than the typical retail value.
Choose Massage Cushions Instead
If you have searched through all the options for purchasing a massage chair at lower prices, and you still don’t think that you can make the leap to invest in a full sized chair – then you might want to consider buying a massage chair cushion. The cushion is an affordable option for turning any regular chair into a massage chair! These cushions often come with the same options that you find in a full sized massage chair. You will not have to sacrifice things like remote control, varying speeds and massage options, and even heat settings. There are even massage cushions that boast the option of an authentic feeling Shiatsu massage.
Sacrifice Some Features
Choosing to forgo the route of finding a large massage chair that offers a more intense massage experience is an additional way to purchase a cheap massage chair. There are many options that are much more sleek in design and use more of a vibrating technique instead of the traditional kneading and pulsating sensations you would get from a larger, more expensive chair. These vibration centered massage chairs are usually under five hundred dollars and they really are a very affordable option that still offers a way to gain relaxation and relief through massage!
Big Box Retailers
Big box retailers such as Walmart, Target, Sam’s, Costco, and so on often sell massage chairs at lower prices than you would see at a specialty massage retailer. These lower priced massage chairs usually have many of the same options that you would find available at a specialty massage chair retailer, but you may not be able to get all the options in one chair. Also, you may have to sacrifice a minor amount of quality in your massage experience, but unless you try the cheaper version side by side with the more expensive version, you probably wouldn’t notice the difference.
The most important thing to do when looking for a low cost massage chair is to remember to shop wisely and do diligent research. Make sure you know exactly what you want in your massage chair when you are considering the price you want to pay. Just remember that no matter what you choose to pay for your massage chair, using a massage chair can lead to so many health benefits like reduced stress and the relief of common aches and pains that it would be worth the initial investment!
