I've been casually searching for a massage chair for months.

While the price point is still well out of my range, I can appreciate the effort.

RFD has a hate on for massage chairs, like Burberry Sales and $1,000 headphones deals.

I see it as an added luxury item in my home. Like an arcade cabinet in the mancave or a 82" TV above the fireplace (I know you saw that Visions deal)

I want the experience of a mall massage chair, without people staring at my fat jiggling as they walk by (it's cool if that's your kink tho)

We bought one earlier this year or it may have been late last year from the roadshow at Costco. Two things to note:

1. delivery is free
2. fellow business owners, you can write this off if you're a business owner as it's considered health/wellness.
3. This chair is awesome and has become a huge hit in our office!

Posting a "chair" at this price will get many downvotes for sure.

I purchased mine 8 years ago at $6000 and it is still going strong. No regards at all!

Bought mine 5 years ago, excellent chair. No regrets. Saved a fortune on massages and chiropractor visits and feel much better. Even when you pay for RMT massage, quality of massage is not the same all the time - from my experience in 80% of time you get massage worse than what chair provides. On the top of it when you are in lockdown, there is no even an option to get a massage. Make a present to your back - get one. Prepare for the next lockdown :)

I honestly didn't expect that many downvotes. I was just posting it for those that are interested and understand that there is a market for higher end massage chairs. Normally when I see something that I'm not interested in (regardless of price), I don't bother to comment or vote at all as everyone has a different budget and opinion on value. I guess next time, Ill avoid posting something like this in the hot deals thread, hahaa...

This reminds me of an eleiko post that got downvoted because people thought it was overpriced and compared it to Walmart equipment, haha..

Or you can just ignore the downvotes because who really cares one way or another?

Panasonic is a leading brand for massage chairs.

Ma73 is a very good chair. 5k is a very good price for brand new.

People that compare it to massage chairs 2k and under with Panasonic top of line series just doesn't know massage chairs.

Anything costs more than $99 or 10% of original price is a bad deal here. Lol.
Nevertheless, this is a very good price for a Panasonic massage chair. It doesn’t compare with a new real person massage but it is good enough to help me relax after a long day.

The deal in this thread is the $5000 that you’ll be saving by not buying the chair

RFD people get excited to buy $2 chocolate bars for 75 cents. Most of em can't afford $5,000 massage chairs so getting an $8,000 massage chair for $5,000 is foreign to them.

I don’t get how anybody on a deal site can afford to spend 5k on a chair lol

I wouldn't be surprised if most rfd members probably make 6 digits. 5k is nothing.

People spend easily over 2.5-3k for oled TV. Or 1.8k for alienware curved monitors. Or $500 on induction pressure rice cookers. $900 for Dyson v15.

You don't want to buy a cheap massage chair. It's either you buy a decent one or better not buy one at all.

Yea I noticed that. I make very good money myself I’m just cheap. I always thought these massage chairs were just for commercial use or they sat around people homes untouched. I didn’t know they were such popular items.

I learned something new :)

How does this one compare to the one in salon parlors or at the mall/gym? I've never liked those chairs so I am not sure if I should expect more.

I can tell you from personal experience that it gets way more use than the gym equipment! Much easier to sit back and nap on a massage chair for an hour than run on the treadmill!

Those are garbage.

Thats like comparing a public playground to a ride at Wonderland.

That being said - I'm not a huge fan of Panasonic for massage chairs.

For that price range, this is a way better chair and can save a few bucks getting a demo.
