Finding cheap gaming chair deals can be a tough racket, because a lot of the models only very rarely go on sale, and the vast majority of those seats that are discounted are on clearance because they're trash. That said, if you look hard enough and peek under enough rocks, you can find some pretty incredible deals on even the most premium gaming chairs, so we combed through every retailer to find discounts on some of the best gaming chairs. Getting a great chair not only improves your quality of life while you play, but can actually up your game, letting you focus on headshots rather than the kink in the small of your back or how much your neck aches.
Secretlab's Omega is still available at an excellent price, currently only $329 from Secretlab in the US (a massive $111 off). It's one of the most comfortable, adjustable, durable chairs we've ever had the pleasure of testing, and it's currently parked at the very top of our best gaming chair roundup.

Respawn 200 gaming chair (black) | $225.99 (save $17)

E-WIN Flash XL Series | $399 ($300 off)
This chair is normally a whopping $700, so at 43% off it's definitely worth considering. The Flash XL Series is so big it's more of a throne, but that extra size means it's extra comfortable and highly adjustable. Buy it at Newegg
X Rocker Pro Series is $189 ($10 off)
Sometimes the most high stress matches make me fidget like an anxious 3rd grader, and at moments like that, the X Rocker is great, allowing you rock and swivel to your hearts content. It's even got an integrated sound system with a woofer and independent volume and bass controls. Buy it at Walmart
Our favorite gaming chairs
1. Secretlab Omega
Our favorite gaming chair in 2019
Seat type: Racing seat | Recline: 165 degrees | Weight capacity: 240 lbs | Weight: 66 lbs | Available colors: Stealth, Classic, Amber, Royal, Ash
Few gaming chairs can mix both style and comfort, but the Omega does just that. It's shaped to support every part of your back, and the additional lumbar pillow and headrest mean that you can get whatever support you need while sitting in a chair that not only classes up a gaming set-up, but also sits very comfortably in an office environment too.
What's more the controls feel both well-made and easy to use. Some chairs save money in the plastic parts on the arm-rests and levers, but the ones on the Omega feel sturdy and easy enough to push into place. In fact, once you've actually put the chair together (get a friend to help) it all feels very solid and well crafted. The Omega itself is probably a little expensive at full price, but Secretlab often reduces the price by about $100/£100, so this is the ideal time to pick one up.
If you want to spend a little more money, the Softweave version is very plush, and adds an extra layer of cushioning to the chair. It makes a pleasing difference.
2. Noblechairs Epic
The best luxury option, with real leather
Seat type: Racing seat | Recline: 135 degrees | Weight capacity: 265 lbs | Weight: 62 lbs | Available colors: Black, Brown beige, Brown black, White
While similar in shape and design to the Omega, the Noblechairs Epic is designed to offer a little firmer support, which can actually benefit your back and posture. Again, this would be perfect for anyone looking to combine their gaming rig with a more standard working environment, because it looks like a nice piece of furniture. Especially if you go for the real leather version, which we were lucky enough to test. The trade-off is that this chair is expensive compared to its competitors, and any PU leather versions.
The Epic comes in a variety of tasteful colors too, something that many gaming chairs should take note of, and all the trimmings feel well made and worth the money. There's a lovely, precise tilt mechanism here to help you recline, and good support for both neck and lumbar. A nice chair, if you can afford it or find a decent deal.
