What to expect from gaming chair deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday

Chairs4Gaming held a decent Black Friday sale last year with 15 to 20 percent off of a selection of DXRacer models, and 10 percent off footrests. Meanwhile, Office Depot ran a sale on a $99 "gaming chair" of an undisclosed brand. For 2018, Staples has already revealed a $99 gaming chair (brand unknown), which is $100 down from its usual price. 

Unfortunately, gaming chairs aren't equipment that typically get that many decent sales around the holidays, due to their higher prices and quality. However, discounts that most retailers offer around this time will likely work on inventory they carry that's eligible for percentages off, even if there's not a sale on a gaming chair per se. 

Amazon offered a few gaming chairs for Prime Day recently as well, such as the Respawn 110 Racing Style Leather Gaming Chair for $139.99, down from its original price of $497, among a few other deals, so we could see similar set of deals take place for Black Friday or Cyber Monday. With gaming chairs more in demand than ever thanks to the growing number of streamers out there, it’s likely we’ll see a swath of additional sales this year.
