For whichever reason you’re looking for an affordable bean bag below $50, you’ve come to the right place. We narrowed down our top 10 list of bean bags on the market.
Before We Get Started, There Are Two Types Of Bean Bags On This List
- Bean Bags With Filler: Bean bags with filler come filled up upon arrival.
- Bean Bags Without Filler (AKA Cover Only): These Bean bags come with only the cover. Using the zipper, people primarily stuff these bean bags with stuffed animals. This generally kills two birds in one stone by keeping the stuffed animals organized while maintaining a relatively comfortable bean bag.
In Short, Here Are The Best Cheap Bean Bag Chairs Below $50 (With or Without Filler)
- Big Joe Bean
- CALA LIFE
- Posh Beanbags
- Sofa Sack
1. Big Joe Bean
First up, Big Joe Bean is a very affordable bean bag running under $50. You can get it in one of 6 different colors. With a large seating space, it can be used for both kids and adults. It’s filled with UltimaX Beans for comfort. For the low cost, it’s a great option!
Users Say: “My 9 year old loves this bean bag. I bought it for him after his 11 year old brother got one and loved his. They are on the small side, but perfect for a kid who just wants somewhere to sit while reading or playing on his iPod. I have sat on it and didn’t think it was too bad, although not really meant for an adult, I don’t think.”
2. N/X (Cover Only)
Coming without filler, the N/X affordable bean bag can be filled with either memory foam or children’s toys. You can get it in either pink, chocolate, or light grey. Both sizes below $50, you can get it in a kid’s small size at 32×28, or an adult large at 43×36. We highly recommend it!
Users Say: “I cut up an old foam mattress and filled this with the pieces. Pretty neat way to reuse something that would otherwise most likely end up in a landfill. Retro corduroy is very comfy and looks great. Would definitely recommend picking this up if you have something to fill it with. Would work great for a kids stuffed animals too, if you had a ton of them.”
3. Nobildonna (Cover Only)
Also without filler, the Nobildonna is a very popular but affordable bean bag. You can use it for stuffed animal storage, toy storage, or your own foam. It provides excellent build quality for the low price. Coming in at 43″ x 35″, it’s nicely sized for most ages. With 6 colors to choose from, a convenient handle on the side, and stain-resistant capabilities, it’s a reliable choice.
Users Say: “This is exactly what I was looking for to store my grandchildren’s stuffed animals. After a remodel of the guest bedroom, which houses their toys, stuffed animals, etc., I was able to store not only all of their animals (which was at least two storage bins worth) but several large blankets as well. It’s perfect and looks great in the room.”
4. CALA LIFE (Cover Only)
For good reasons, CALA LIFE is one of the highest user reviewed bean bags without filler on the market. Made with 100% cotton, it has an outstanding build quality and lasts a very long time. For those who use it for stuffed animal storage or add memory foam, this bean bag is extremely comfortable. We highly recommend it!
Users Say: “This was a great solution. But, sitting on a stuffed animal is just not comfortable. My kids love them and it hides all the stuff animals and blankets so I am beyond happy. It’s very nice and well made. Worth the purchase. I cannot expect it to sit or feel like a real bean bag. Overall very happy!”
Filled with polystyrene beans, the Posh Beanbag is an inexpensive option. Not only will you enjoy its overall comfort, but you might appreciate its compact size, as well. However, we primarily recommend it for younger ages. You can get it in either pink and white stripes or multi-colored flowers!
Users Say: “I bought 2 of these, one for my son and one for my daughter, and they both loved it. They relax on them when they read while working on their school work, and while watching TV. Seems like great quality and comfortable. Overall I recommend them.”
6. Aubliss (Cover Only)
Along with its near-flawless customer reviews, the cover-only Aubliss beanbag is an exceptional choice. Running well below $50, it’s extremely affordable. Better yet, it’s currently on a 6% discount, as well. You can get it in 12 different color options and two separate sizes. For those who need a bean bag without filler for stuffed animals, it’s an amazing choice!
Users Say: “Got this for my daughter’s stuffed animal collection that seems to grow exponentially and I am very pleased. It’s really big – big enough for a 10 year old to hide in… The fabric is pretty heavy without feeling too stiff. The color is vibrant and the zipper is heavy-duty. It’s definitely good quality and I think it will last for years to come.”
7. Sofa Sack
Running below $50, the Sofa Sack is the most famous beanbag on this list. It’s filled with comfortable foam and has a microsuede cover. You can get it in two sizes; one for kids, and the other for adults. However, the adult size is over $50. This bean bag is double stitched and has a build quality that outperforms its price. We highly recommend it!
Users Say: “This thing is huge! When we first opened it, it was so small, but by the next day, we couldn’t believe how big it got. My kids think it is really comfortable. It’s kind of heavy to move around, but not too bad. The quality seems good and it was a great price. I like the soft foam it is filled with. I have to order another so my kids won’t fight over it.”
8. Delmach (No Filler)
Just recently, the Delmach had a sizable 18% reduction in price. Although we’re unsure if this discount is permanent or temporary, we believe it’s either way, an outstanding bang for the buck. This bean bag doesn’t come with filler. But after filled with memory foam or stuffed animals, it’s very comfortable with its 100% cotton material. You’ll also appreciate that it’s machine washable!
Users Say: “My kids didn’t care to sit on top of their beloved stuffed animals, so this was purchased as a bean bag cover. We’ve got an aging vinyl bean roughly medium size which is useful for kids and adults. You look at bean bags, and lots of them have reviews saying they are bigger and heavier than people expected. Get this cover, and stuff a cheap vinyl bean bag inside for a durable, comfy, cleanable, and movable bean bag on the cheap. Buy the 38″ if your existing bean bag is around 36″ diameter after you sit in it.”
9. Lukeight (Cover Only)
The Lukeight is a beanless bean bag under $50. Not only is it inexpensive, but it’s also very highly reviewed amongst users and extremely popular. You can get it in two different sizes and various color options!
Users Say: “Finding out about this product was serendipity. I was actually looking for installation videos for the stuffed animal hammock and came across this. Thank Goodness! This is so much cleaner and more attractive than the hammock. The stuffed animals have been driving me crazy for a while now. As much as we’ve tried to get rid of a few here and there, somehow they just seem to multiply. This storage solution is genius! I thought I might need two, but the 48” one held all of the stuffies with room to spare. I did put some extra blankets we had in there as well to make it more comfortable when sitting on it. Finally a place for those to go also! I can not say enough good things about this product. I will update this review should any issues arise. So far it’s GREAT!”
10. WEKAPO (Cover Only)
Last but not least, the WEKAPO is another beanbag without filler. It has superb build quality, high ratings, and a stylish design. We highly recommend it!
Users Say: “Awesome invention! I was torn between this and another brand that had like 3000 reviews but one thing this had that the other one did not was the YKK zipper which if you own a name brand bag know this is one of the best zippers they make I probably fit about 40 ridiculous stuffed animals in this thing and she’s still got plenty room for more doesn’t mean I’m consenting to any being bought though lol super cute pattern the fabric seems to be pretty durable super happy momma here!”
