Office chairs can be expensive. We've seen chairs retail for, no kidding, more than we paid for our first car. And they hardly ever have an AM/FM radio or fuzzy dice.
So where can you find ? It turns out that there are plenty of places -- both online and off -- where a bargain-hunting office manager or weary home office worker can find top-quality chairs for low prices. Here are a few of our favorites.
The gold standard of online auction sites, eBay is an excellent place to start your hunt for a cheap, high-quality office chair. As always, buyer beware. Stick to top-rated sellers with good reviews to maximize your chances of working with a reputable dealer, and always buy with a credit card that will allow you to cancel the transaction should something go wrong.
If you like to get your furniture locally, and want to see it in person before you buy, Craigslist is an excellent option. The no-frills listing site lets you see local ads for all kinds of furniture, including office chairs -- much of it for absurdly low prices. Sometimes, you can even find really great stuff for free on Craigslist, if former owners are trying to clear out their old furnishings and don't want to be bothered donating or selling it.
3. Office Furniture Closeouts
Check your local newspaper (or online version of the same) for office furniture closeouts from businesses or retailers in your area. You can often get brand-new furniture for steep discounts. Closeouts are a great option for folks who don't feel comfortable picking up furniture at strangers' houses or bidding on items sight unseen.
