Today Only @ Best Buy Canada: 50% Off Montecito Bonded High-Back Chair + NO TAX & Free Shipping – Now $150 (expired)
Need a new office chair? Today only, Best Buy has discounted the Montecito bonded high-back manager & executive chair by 50% off. It was originally priced as high as $299.99 but is now just $149.98. Plus, you won’t be any tax on it as part of Best Buy’s current “no tax on all furniture” event and it will also be shipped for free — can’t get any better than that!
Made of bonded leather, the Montecito chair has soft to the touch exterior, a pneumatic seat adjustment along with fixed and padded armrests. It’s high back chair, which is ideal for the spine. It also comes with a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty.
I love the look of this chair. It looks like a professional and elegant chair that could easily make any home office look more upscale. A couple of these could even be bought for numerous people at a small office but just don’t forget that this deal will end at midnight tonight as part of Best Buy’s Daily Deal Countdown, during which different markdowns are offered on a daily basis until February 26th.
Don’t panic when you see tax fees get added to your shopping cart once you go to checkout because the tax total will then be subtracted from the price of the chair, putting the total at $149.98. It’s just Best Buy’s way of applying the no tax promotion.
Reviews are mixed. At Best Buy’s site, the Montecito has 7 reviews and a total of 2.7/5 stars. Here’s what one reviewer had to say about it:
After a relatively easy assembly, the chair is very comfortable. Only had brief difficulties attaching the arms. Chair lifts and drops, however does not recline. Aside from that, overall great computer chair.
However, I also found the Montecito chair at Staples for $223.34 and 21 reviews with a total of 4/5 stars with comments like this one:
This is the best chair I’ve ever bought. My son assembled it in no time; it’s comfortable, high enough, and doesn’t squeak. Since we always fight for it, I’m buying another one!
As you can see, it really seems to be a matter of preference.
Usually, Best Buy ships all orders over $25 for free but I wasn’t sure that it would apply to this chair as well. I’m happy to report that it does indeed qualify for free shipping, which is particularly awesome for those of you who don’t have a car or perhaps have one that is too small to fit a large box.
