Where to buy an affordable electric recliner / armchair?

Hi, I want to make the most of black Friday deals if possible and am looking for a reclining armchair. Does anyone know a reliable seller for discount options? 

Essentials are:
- Under 90cm wide
- Reclines to 155° or more
- Leather or faux leather
- Under £500
- At least one year warranty

Features I'm looking for:
- heat and massage a definite bonus
- cup holders a bonus but not essential if the arms are at least 15cm wide as I can buy a slap on version!! 
- electric recline
- cream a bonus but will consider black or dark grey. Not brown.

I've found some online for £400 but it's hard to find a good company. There seem to be so many scam deals and sellers on amazon and no warranty.

I'm disabled and need to recline to get relief from my symptoms (POTS). Hence the heat and massage options of some of these chairs really appeal for some relief. I also drink extensively to manage my illness and need to minimise movement hence cup holders. I am really struggling to know where to look and overwhelmed by the options.

Recliners in the sofa shops seem to average at least £800 without any of the bells and whistles.

    Have you considered second hand?  Ok, probably no warranty but also a fraction of the price.  MiL bought a very nice chair from a reputable shop and it cost about £1700 5 years back. When she died last year my OH managed to find someone willing to pay £200 for it.  Ok, no massage, heat or cupholder but that gives you an indication of what you might find.  He sold via Gumtree and after some scammers trying it on a legit buyer came along took the chair as well as some other mobility bits that we had.  

    If you don't fancy Gumtree go into a local mobility shop and ask about second hand or even demo or display items.

    I've bought recliner chairs through amazon with no issue at all (came via a third party supplier) - there seem to be a few that match your requirements just like this one:


    Read the reviews to get a feel for what people think of the chairs - but bear in mind that when they're delivered they usually come in two boxes and need some assembly. I did the ones for my dad by myself - but two people would have been easier. Do you have access to someone that can help you assemble it?
