I sit at my desk for 8 hours a day and this seat cushion keeps the 'fanny fatigue' at bay — get it on sale for $22

Its ergonomic shape helps relieve tailbone and back strain and some shoppers say it helped improve their posture.

As someone who works from home, I sit a lot — and I mean a lot. If I'm being honest, sometimes hours go by before I realize I haven't gotten up from my desk. While this isn't anything to brag about (I'm a work in progress), the Xtreme Comforts Padded Foam Seat Cushion is actually the main reason why I can go for so long without budging. It's comfortable, extremely supportive, and has an ergonomic shape that doesn't strain my tailbone. Even better, it's over 30% off right now at Amazon.

Whether you sit in a desk chair all day for work or need some extra support while you drive, this padded seat cushion is a must-buy.

Why is this a good deal?

As far as seat cushions go, this is one of the best-reviewed on Amazon. In fact, over 20,000 shoppers can't stop raving about how comfortable it is. Just earlier this month, it was at its peak price of $39, but is now on sale for $22 with the on-page coupon — and given that this is likely something you'll reach for every single day, it may be the best $22 you'll spend this month.

Why do I need this?

If you frequently find yourself fatigued or just plain uncomfortable while sitting at your desk, this cushion might help. Its memory foam fill adapts to your body and the ergonomic design can help to ease back and posterior discomfort. Rather than sinking into your chair, it supports your tailbone and spine and helps to tilt them into alignment. It ends up taking away the pressure a misaligned seating position can inflict on your body, after hours of sitting.

Unless you're shelling out thousands of dollars for a Herman Miller chair, you're probably sitting in a chair that offers less-than-perfect support for your back. A friend recommended that I get the Xtreme Comforts Padded Foam Seat Cushion back in 2018 and I've never looked back. I'm not exaggerating when I say that I've since used it every single time I sit at my desk — and that's eight hours a day, five days a week.

And it's not just a good option for office chairs, this foam seat cushion is portable and comes in handy for those who need extra cushioning and tailbone support when taking long-haul flights and train rides. If you're attending a concert or a family barbecue, take this cushion with you if you know you'll be sitting for a while.

Cleaning it is also a breeze! It comes with a removable, machine-washable mesh cover. Once it's washed and dried, just slip it back over the cushion and you're good to go. And if you're worried about it losing its shape, I can personally speak to its durability. I've been using mine for well over six years and it's still the same shape it was when I first unboxed it.

What reviewers say:

With over 20,000 fans, it's no surprise that this seat cushion is an Amazon favorite. Shoppers generally agree that it's one of the easiest solutions to helping with tailbone pain. "This cushion allows me to ride my recumbent bike for 2 1/2 hours without any fanny fatigue," one impressed shopper wrote. "I'm delighted."

Another shopper who has a few injuries said she absolutely "can't live without" this affordable seat cushion. "I have back pain and coccyx bone pain from an old injury. This seat cushion takes the pressure off the area that hurts," the reviewer said. "The cushion is well made, has a removable, washable cover and also comes with a convenient carrier case which has handles."

If you sit on hard chairs often, whether it be for work or when out at a restaurant, this shopper, who said it "eases my hip pain," recommends investing in this seat cushion. "This pillow adds a layer of comfort to hard chairs," the shopper explained. "I have a hamstring injury that is taking a long time to recover, so I actually carry this with me to restaurants. It doesn't attract attention and it makes my life so much more enjoyable. At home, I use it on an office chair."

While most shoppers have no cons for this seat cushion, a few reviewers noted that they wished it was bit thinner since its thickness "causes you to sit higher." One of those shoppers added that this is a minor critique and doubled down that it still helped with their back pain.

Shoppers also say it has amazing back support and even helped improve their posture while they sit.
