[Costco] Panasonic Massage Chair EP-MAG3 $4999 saving $2000 in Calgary store

I saw this in the Calgary SE store and looks like this ends Juen 6 but move to Calgary east store.
https://www.costco.ca/special-events.html

Can't find much information on the website. The salesperson told me the special is only available in the store.

I been looking for a massage chair and very interested in this deal but the price is still very high!

Does anyone have experience with Costco's massage chair or Panasonic massage chair before?

Panasonic massage chairs are really good and have been making massage chairs for many many years now. I bought a Panasonic MA70 over 10 years ago and still working. If there is a demo, you should give it a try.

You should also compare the prices from panasonic directly:

I ended up buying this chair from Costco. The MAG3 is the same as the MA73 (both model numbers are shown on the instructions manual that came with the chair). If you’re still looking, I believe the they are still selling them for $5k at the Balzac Costco until July 4th.

I’ll vouch for these Panasonic chairs. Out of the dozens I tried out there the model I have (ma73) wasn't painful and felt more organic… if you’ve tried massage chairs some can feel mechanical. if both are same specs (remote is the same/looks similar)I’m I’d assume they run similar. Best advice would be to give it a try.

The MAG3 is amaaaaazing for back pain. I have an Osaki 4000xt - it's not even close.

No L-track though.

Panasonic chairs are good, especially their topline.
5k is a very good price for ma73.

Save ur money. Non brand name ones sell at auctions for $750

Wholesalers sell them for $1200$-1800

They all feel the same.


Some clowns sell osim ones for $7500-$10,000 in malls to sheep. Don’t be played.

I think we paid $5K or $6K for the MA-73 at the Home Show and took delivery about 2-years ago. No problems and it looks like new.

My wife wasn't really onboard but the kids and I really wanted it. We love the thing to death. If I've been away from home for a while, one of the first things I do is hop in the chair. It gets WAY more use than we ever expected. With the back pad in place, the chair is comfortable enough to curl up in and sleep. Come to think of it, I am going to go for a massage right now.

We have the Panasonic MA-70 for like 7 years now, very nice chair which I use almost everyday. It's worth the premium over those cheap brands. We paid almost the same price back then. The only wish I have is to have better foot massage (instead of just using air bags).

Any suggestions on where to buy them wholesale at $1200-1800 and which model/brand?

I was almost a sheep according to you LOL.

Have you sat in this particular model? The back massage is light years better.

Oh absolutely !! The Osaki does a really mediocre job on glutes so the L-track really doesn't do too much for me. It's relatively easy or inexpensive to get a separate foot massager but the MAG3 isn't too bad - it feels like someone's poking your feet (in a good way) but in the same-ish spot.

Edit: my parents have the Panny and I've spent ~2 hours in it (and countless on the Osaki LOL :P)

Does anyone know the differences between the MAG3 and the MA73?
Tried googling and can't find much.
On the Canadian panasonic sites, the MA73 is $9250 and the MAG3 is $6500. That's a huge difference in price. The operating manual does show both models, but they can be same model with different trims and options.

I had the Osaka 4000 and actually recently sold it because I didn't find it was that great, but it was significantly less money than 5k.

Do you think this one from costco (MAG3/MA-73) is worth the premium? Wondering if you tried other brands, I was considering OSIM

I've had my Panasonic Real Pro Ultra (I think it's the EP30004?) from 14+ years ago and it still looks new. I remember it was the MIJ model then, and about $1,500 more than its MIC counterpart. At the time it offered a 5 year warranty if I remember correctly vs the 1 year for the other model. I had my eye on it for years before biting the bullet and don't regret it one bit. I still use it twice a day LOL.

I've always wanted one of these but the prices are outrageous. If I get an actual massage from a qualified therapist twice a month for two years it's less than the cost of these chairs, and is covered by health insurance. I really wish I could justify it but the original price of $7k was offensive and $5k is still outrageous.

Maybe one day these will come down in price enough to make sense.
