Exploring The Option of Home Tanning

Mar 4, 2008
If you're like most people, you love the sun-kissed look of a natural tan. But maybe you're a little shy, or self-conscious, and don't like going to public tanning salons. If so, then cheap tanning beds are a great option for you, because you can use these beds in the privacy and comfort of your own home. A variety of types of tanning beds are available, from residential to commercial styles, and most of them can be purchased at a low cost.

A simple way to find a quality tanning bed at a low cost is to purchase a used tanning bed. These are relatively easy to find if you visit commercial tanning salons. When these salons upgrade their systems, they frequently sell older beds to consumers at dramatically reduced costs. It is important to remember that the prices of these beds will vary by manufacturer, model, and year, so you will benefit from researching products before you buy. As always, before making any major purchase, check the bed to make sure it is in good condition and that it has all the features you want.

Another low-cost solution is finding tanning beds for sale at wholesale costs, a practice that is more common in online stores than in physical retailers. Because there is some risk involved, make sure you understand the store's refund and exchange policies before you buy. Another great option is to eliminate the "middle man" and purchase your tanning bed directly from its manufacturer. This is a good way to find cheap products, because a manufacturer that has too much stock on hand will often sell tanning beds at greatly reduced rate.

Online shopping is a good way of reducing cost more generally. You can use websites to find coupon codes and discounts that can sometimes save you as much as 25%. Online shopping also makes it easier to do comparison shopping, which is crucial for such a large purchase. You can also try auction sites, such as eBay, if you want to engage in exciting bidding wars over beds at rock-bottom prices.

But don't forget to use more traditional media when you look for tanning beds! The classified advertisements in your local newspaper is a great source of information - especially the lists of garage sales. You may also want to check auction listings. Finally, remember that you can even take out an ad yourself: it's a simple way of getting the best deal on your own private tanning bed!
