The coupons posted aren't working, are there any new coupon codes for $25 off?

Quote from OstrichSak :
I know this deal has ended already and I missed out but for those who got in on this deal, does the tilt mechanism lock fully?


Story time...
I got a similar mesh chair from a previous Slickdeal ("Terance" model from Staples) that I absolutely love for the money save for one glaring deal breaker: the upright can NOT be locked fully. The height adjustment handle can be "popped" in to "lock" the tilt mechanism like every other chair in existence but on this particular chair it still allows for a 3-4" tilt or so. This is frustrating when you sit at Zoom meetings all day and want to remain fully upright to look "engaged" but you are basically sitting on a barstool w/o the back support to help. This is fine for a bit but after a short period you get fatigued from trying to sit upright on your own all day. I've read the reviews on that particular chair and it seems as though this was how it was designed as I'm not the only one who noticed that quirk.

I went to Office Max a few nights ago (two days of 8-hours of Zoom meetings w/o back support forced my hand to take action in that moment) and sat in more than two-dozen office chairs. Not a single one of them exhibited this behavior so I have no idea why the manufacturers of that chair decided it was a good idea. It seems as though they felt that the two options for the recline feature should be "unlocked" and "slightly less unlocked" without any option at all to lock it fully. Stupid.

I love that chair otherwise and it worked fine for occasional use while sitting at the computer for the better part of a year. I normally don't care how "attentive" I appear while doing personal stuff at the PC. It was only once I started working from home via Zoom meetings and wanted to appear upright and attentive (read: professional) for my meetings that I noticed this flaw.

Kind of a long post but in case anyone else in the future finds either of these chairs via a search (maybe even me down the road) I'm hoping the information can help others make an informed decision.
If what I posted about here (lack of a true locking tilt) is a concern of yours... do NOT buy this chair. I went and sat in about 50 chairs over the last 72-hours or so and this was the ONLY chair aside from the Tarance I posted about that exhibited this behavior. Seriously, the only one. You "lock" it out and the back doesn't actually look out. It just goes from reclining to reclining less. There is no way to lock this out. If you ever want to sit straight up for long-ish periods you will quickly realize that this is NOT the chair you want.

Other than that, solid chair. It was wide between the arms which was where a lot of other chairs failed in my sit test. I've got thicc thighs and I guess I man-spread because most chairs I sit in are too narrow across the mid-thigh are for me. I go six-feet tall and about a biscuit shy of 250lbs in my current "dirty bulk" phase during winter months. I trim down to 225ish or so but the width is still an issue as my thicc thighs tend to remain. I'm amazed that so many chairs are so narrow in this area as I don't consider myself all that much larger that average in terms of Americans. The seat pan and upright are cozy enough that longer periods of sitting shouldn't be too taxing. The headrest is pointless as it's not adjustable and tends to be too low and too far back to really do anything. If it was adjustable and/or was about two inches higher and came forward another couple of inches it would be perfect. As it is it's largely for looks only unless you recline and lay your head all the way back but at that point you can't see the computer anymore so.... go find a bed. lol

Overall I'd say this chair is probably worth about $125 as priced here. Like most of these chairs, the retail price is a joke and anyone who pays it will regret their purchase most likely. These are all priced 2x higher than they should just to make these "sales" look better. The blue one looked really good in person and I think it shows better in person than online. My wife really liked the look of it and if that "lock" function actually locked the back in the upright position I'd probably be sitting in it right now rather than the customer returned Lazy Boy I left with.

The Lazy Boy Joel is a similar chair but made MUCH better with a far more comfortable seat pan pad and it just feels more solid. Most importantly for me, when I lock the recline it actually locks in place. The headrest is also more functional but is still just a tad too low and far back to be something I would consider neck/head support at normal sitting positions for most people. The one I'm talking about retailed for $250 (again, laughable) but was on sale for $180 which was more reasonable. This customer returned functioned 100% and looked brand new... only assembled. They took another 10% off and I happily took it off of their hands for a bit over $150 total.

That Joel chair is a MUCH better buy than this chair at $125, the Hyken at $144 (or even $105, I'll post my feelings on that chair on that deal thread shortly) or even the Tarance I bought a year ago for $99. I sat in a ton of chairs the last 3-4 days and aside from a few that were $500+ this is about the best chair for the money I found. If you have no need for a true locking tilt this Dexley is probably a close second. If you need a locking back, this is a deal breaker.

Quote from TensePencil979 :
Hey coming back to let you know I received the chair. They actually sent two! I will be returning one and getting my money back and also returning the staples chair. The staples chair really had only one complaint, which was the lumbar support, really left my back hurting after a few hours of working. This amazon chair has softer lumbar support. The headrest feels like a brick, but it does recline more than the staples one. The wheels are pretty nice though. The seat is firm, but not unpleasant. I'll have to sit in it for longer but overall both chairs seem about equal to me. For reference, I'm 6'0, 250 lbs.
Thanks for the update! Do they feel similar quality wise? I was leaning towards the staple one for easy return and 7 year warranty but looks like the coupons have expired now. Guess I'll try the amazon one!

I jut received this chair and assembled it. First impressions is this is a real budget chair made to look nice, but ultimately function like a cheaper chair. The gas cylinder receptacle that bolts to the underside of the chair is the simple single lever-type for locking reclining and operating cylinder. Gas cylinder didn't even come with a sleeve for hiding the post. On the upside, assembly was super easy and all the material, while 100% plastic, feels mostly sturdy. Except for the headrest. The bolt threads in that are plastic and it will surely snap off from the chair if forced enough.

I'm already having an annoying issue with the chair though. The gas cylinder post is ever so loose to where the chair can rock around slightly. This is an inherent problem with all gas cylinders over time where the seal wears down from all the side forces. But I wouldn't have thought out of the box this would happen. Time to contact Stalpes.

It is comfortable and happy with the discounted purchase, but overall I expect to have issues with this chair in the 7 year warranty period. It is just too cheap not to have issues. I expect the mesh sag will become unbearable after a few years.

I have been using for a couple days and not really feeling comfortable. The chair is a little bit high for me even set to the lowest possible, I am 5"6.

If I decided to return, do I need to dissemble it and put back to the box? Or I can just bring the whole chair to staple? It might difficult to parts back to the box Frown
