I just got my brand new Classic Aeron fully adjustable chair from OfficeDesigns. Originally clicked though their ad offering 15% off, the sale starting in May. I decided to call anyway as the ad encouraged calling to check inventory. Glad I did - apparently, if you call in, can get 25% off Classic Aeron as they are trying to clear inventory. They have the new Aeron chair but honestly I did not ask about it, and have other sizes but I was only interested in the C. No tax aside from IL, free FedEx 3 day shipping included. The guy I spoke to, Jamie, was very helpful. Bought a fully adjustable C size Aeron + PostureFit (which I think is much better than the useless lumbar support that was replaced on my older Aeron). OfficeDesigns is also an authorized HM retailer. Lastly, I realize that $750 is a lot to pay for a chair but the nature of my work involves sitting for long periods - and I believe that my back would have been shot had it not been for my Aeron chair.

Below is my emailed invoice. Bought it yesterday morning, and there were still several chairs left but the lead color was gone. The chair was shipped immediately and tracking to arrive tomorrow by the end of the day (IL to NYC, impressive).

Classic Aeron Chair - Tilt Limiter with Seat Angle Adjustment, Adjustable Arms, C - Large Chair Size, Adjustable PostureFit Support, Graphite Base / Graphite Frame, 2.5-inch Standard Carpet Casters, Black Vinyl, Blue Black Tuxedo Herman Miller $993.00 $993.00

I bought my Steelcase Gesture from Office Designs. If you work with a dedicated rep, they are very willing to negotiate pricing with you. Just communicate via chat/phone, and they'll work with you on pricing.

Steelcase and Herman Miller were restricted in the max discount they could provide (if I recall, it was around 10-15%), but Haworth, for example, could go up a little bit more (~20-25%).

This was about two years ago, so I'm not sure if anything has changed.

These chairs have fixed (not adjustable) arms and no PostureFit (latter along can run as much as $100). Mine had both for $20 more. Their Amazon pricing is not as good a deal.

That was my experience as well, and this time around the rep was willing to provide 25% on select Herman Miller (I did not ask about others, however). Need to call in.

I was able to call and get 20% off Herman Miller (redesigned Aeron). Herman Miller is doing their semi-annual 15% off sale next week which they pass through to their authorized dealers. They can't advertise anything lower than 15% but there's still room for discounting if you chat or talk to them. It was very painless to get the the price via their chat window and then call with my cc info.

Make sure you are specifying the exact one online. Some are quick ship and some are custom (30 days). The quick ship are all pre-configured and in stock so you are stuck with some options that you may not like or need. (ie: I didnt need fully adjustable arms but ended up paying $40 more since the in-stock model had them already).
