Warmer weather is finally on the horizon, and I can’t wait to spend the summer season hanging out on my deck with friends. I used to think you needed to have a complete backyard setup with all the bells and whistles, but it turns out you can create a cozy outdoor hangout spot without shelling out hundreds of dollars. Just ask Five Below, which is now selling adorable and comfy reclining chairs for just $20.

TikToker user Maggie (@maggiemaebooher) showed off the chairs in a recent viral video first posted on May 6. The chairs, which are part of Five Below’s Five Beyond section, come with a fabric sling seat, with a wooden frame that can recline as far as you’d like.

“PSA!!! Five Below has some insane summer items!!” Maggie wrote. “I loooooove these!!!”

Since Maggie shared her TikTok a week ago, it has received more than 60,200 likes and 408,200 views.

“I’ve had these for a year and they are amazing!” one commenter wrote.

“This is my go-to beach chair!” another TikToker commented. “So comfortable!!! Been using it for 2 years!”

Another added, “Five below?!! Omg I’m running 😍”

According to Five Below, the Sling Beach Chair is foldable, so you won’t have to worry about transporting it to your next pool, beach, or patio hang, and storing it at home afterward. 

While shipping and delivery for the Sling Beach Chair are currently unavailable, you can check on Five Below’s website to see whether or not the chair is available for in-store pickup or home delivery. However, ordering the item online (even if you pick it up in store) will cost you $25 rather than $20.

As part of Five Below’s Five Beyond program, the Sling Beach Chair retails for well above the brand’s now-iconic $5 pricing. While that price might feel surprising to Five Below shoppers, buying a chic, cozy beach or deck chair for $20 is an absolute steal.

If the chair is out of stock or not available for shipping at your local Five Below, you can find a similar sling chair on Amazon for $46.99. The chairs are sold as a set of two, so while it comes with a higher price tag for two, the way the math works out you’ll be spending $23.50 per chair, which makes it even more affordable than Five Below’s.
