Herman Miller is going to start their semiannual 15% off sale on November 19- December 10. All authorized dealer (if not most) should carry the sale event. HM will only honor their 12 year warranty from their dealer. Just pick anyone in the link.

To get a even better deal, use your Discover card. 5% cash back on online or department stores.

Try out the chair at your local store before you decide to buy or not. DWR or Room & Board have floor samples. They will have the sales event too.

I miss out on the prior Steelcase united way sale as I really need a new task chair. Want the Slickdeal Leap chair sale price.

Currently using those chair from Office Depot/Staples/Offic Max that I have to replace every 2-4 years cause they break down or cushion worn out. Not sure If I really want to pay Embody price or just get Aeron/Mirra. Not sure why but for me Mirra feels more comfortable over Aeron.

Sorry no hdmi attachment.Stick Out Tongue And the price if not for everyone. New chair every few years vs $$$ for a very comfortable chair that should last a long time (12+ years).

Hello fellow slickdealers, I have a question I hope you could help me answer.

I am a software developer and spend about 8-10 hours sitting down. I am currently using a cheap (abou $100) chair from Staples and feel uncomfortable.

I came across this article [codinghorror.com] by Jeff Atwood, co-founder of Stackoverflow and felt the need of investing on a really good chair. I am 25 years old and really want to avoid developing back problems over the years.

So my question is, given that I live in the central valley, very far from a "back store" I am not able to test multiple chairs. Would you suggest I get the Mirra chair from Amazon which is currently 679 without taxes?

Thank you in advance.

I would seriously advise you to try them out before you put in hundreds of $ in a chair that you will likely use for years to come. Maybe try to find friends who own them?
My husband and I went into a back store with open minds. I actually wanted to like Mirra because of the cost and look. But it was so stiff and not comfortable at all. I liked both the Aeron and Embody but hubby didn't dig the contour of Embody. That's why we still ended up with the Aeron. In the end the price difference between the Mirra you priced out and a fully loaded Aeron is less than $100. I'm sure there are people who like Mirra better. To me it's a personal difference that you just have to try before you buy.

Hon makes a great chair for around $379.00 bought them for my entire office (all computer workers) I like them so much. Used to be dealer only but you can special order them at Office Depot now if you want one...

Oh Hon Ignition is the name of the line if you want one. I got the ones with all the features (arms, back, sliding seat) and the mesh back for my people and they love them.

I work for a Herman Miller authorized dealer (not a salesperson) and you can get way more than 15% off list(retail) just by walking into a dealer showroom. We carry retail base model black embody chairs with arms for $650 and have posture fit black aerons for $500. Those are prices for new items, used can typically be found in our retail area for half the price I listed above. Great chairs but I prefer something with more support that's why I sit in a cella, which looks similar to a modern torture device but its built like a tank.

Do you have any suggestions for adjusting the Hon Ignition? I have had one for about a year, but within an hour of sitting down my upper back, at the shoulder blades, is in pain. I'm about 6' 4" and 275 lbs. I've been toying with the settings for awhile and typically don't keep the same configuration for more than an hour or two due to the pain. I can't really afford a new chair, but as an IT student sitting at a computer desk is imperative.

There are many different versions of the hon ignition dependent on what you order. But that not really the premise of this thread. In short the back slides up and down, seat slides in and out, arms up and down, back in and out, and they all go up and down. Enough adjustments to fit about anyone we've found, and my employees prefer the mesh back vs solid.

Can you comment on where you work?

I'd like to buy this chair however, I can't find a store that sells it cheaper than $900. My trigger point is $700 or cheaper.

Yeah I'm pretty sure that guy is BSing.

They don't sell the chairs that much cheaper--and BM will always be more expensive (cause of tax).

Got mine and saved a hefty bit with some negotiating. High mark-up on these products and as long as you find a hungry sales manager you can get away with a great price.

Would you mind sharing what you bought and what price you got it for? I plan to visit an authorized dealer in the near future to sit in some chairs anyway, so it never hurts to know what kind of negotiating I might be able to do...

I got an embody, paid $850 for mine, sadly, I saw this deal for $798 on another forum a little later...

I'm pretty sure they authorized dealers are not 'supposed' to sell for less than MSRP, but really it's about whether they're willing to do it and not get caught.. and whether they've hit their monthly sales targets yet...
