Dealing with a just-good-enough workspace? You deserve a work-from-home setup that truly performs. So if you’re reading this from a tired old office chair that leaves you with a crick in your neck, it’s time to give that seat the pink slip.

And now's the time to do it, because the Wayfair Basics Mesh Task Office Chair — which is so popular, it’s basically achieved cult status — is on sale for a mind-boggling 70 percent off. Yep, fans usually shell out $241 for this ergonomic masterpiece, but you can recruit it for just $72.

Let’s pick apart all the things that make the Wayfair Basics Mesh Task Office Chair such a VIP. First there’s the fact that it’s so comfortable, you (almost) won’t notice you’ve been sitting all day. It has a contoured swivel seat that’s padded with two inches of cushy foam, plus a support system for your mid-to-upper back region.

Anyone who’s developed chronic aches and pains from a desk job knows just how important a supportive chair is, and this one keeps back aches at bay while letting you adjust the height easily. “It moves up and down smoothly so both myself who is 5’2’ and my husband who is 6’2’ comfortably fit at the desk,” as one fan put it.

This kind of customization also ensures your spine and neck are always in alignment. Over the long term, this can save you costly trips to the chiropractor and preserve your overall health. The chair can even support up to 250 pounds.

“The back rest is just wide enough to engulf my entire back,” one happy shopper reported. “I have a back problem and this really helps.”

“Finally no back pain,” another added.

But comfort isn’t the only thing that has reviewers hooked. Design-minded shoppers are delighted that they can invest in an ergonomic chair that’s also modern, cheerful, and blends into almost any decor. The Wayfair Basics Mesh Task Office Chair doesn’t just come in black and gray, like most desk chairs — the mesh upholstery is actually available in 15 colors!

Add a pop of color like red, green, yellow or turquoise — or keep things muted with coffee, burgundy, navy or basic black or grey. It even comes in white for all you brave souls, or anyone who’s a pro at mess-free office lunches.

Best of all, you save $169 on this brilliant beauty right now. $169 in your pocket! You’ll be the envy of the work-from-home set, and you’ll save more money than you spend. What’s the downside here? Get off your butt and buy this Wayfair gem before it turns into a (full-priced) pumpkin.

Or perhaps let these savvy shoppers persuade you:

“Exactly what I needed to complete my home office space. Was able to assemble in about 30 minutes, which is no time at all. Wayfair does it again!,” wrote one super fan.

“I freaking love this chair,” another added. “This product came in a timely fashion and the color I picked goes great with the room. When I finally put it together and took a seat oh jeez I fell even more in love. All the comfort I need and adjustment is a great height for my taller clients. Using for sitting over 4 hours.”

With all this savings, you can even go ahead and buy more than one, guilt-free. That’s what this customer did: “I bought three of these chairs. I have them at two sewing machines and in my office,” said the fan. “Exactly what I needed.”
