An even cheaper alternative is to buy a padded arm sleeve to slip on when you play. Oasis makes one, and if you search this forum, there has been some discussion of those and others.
For a cheap guitar like the Yamaha CGX122MCC, I’m not sure it’s worth spending too much to buy a cheap armrest and spending the time & effort to affix it to the guitar at the right point of the curve of armrest & guitar.
The padded arm sleeve is a good idea; I have a similar Yamaha (CG122MC) which also has a sharp edge, so made a dirt-cheap DIY version to protect my forearm.
Mine is from some leftover padding material (like a thick neoprene or hard sponge, picked up, iirc, from a bike shop’s discarded rubbish - they padded the bodies of higher-end bikes with this) and a section of elasticised bandage material (of a width meant for the thigh rather than arm so as to accommodate the padding).
