Where and How to Acquire Discount Tanning Bulbs

Oct 12, 2007
Tanning bed bulbs need to be replaced regularly to keep one's tanning bed in top performance. The bulbs are the soul of the tanning system, the essential element in producing the perfect tan. However, needing to replace them every so often also makes them the number one reminder of how expensive it could be to maintain a tanning bed. To save on the cost of buying bulbs, people who own tanning beds and lamps look up good deals on discount tanning bulbs on the Internet. But if you are new to the task, where and how exactly should you start your search?

The bulbs' manufacturer's or dealers' website is actually a good place to start. If the dealers or manufacturers have a website, you could visit it regularly or whenever you need to, simply to check up on good deals. Alternatively, if they have a mailing list where you can stay in touch with product updates, you could simply sign up for these mailing lists and have the sale announcements land in your inbox as soon as they are put up. When your favorite bulbs' dealer or manufacturer's website advertises discount tanning bulbs on sale, take advantage and don't just buy the replacement set that you need - buy an extra set!

Sometimes though, you can't wait for your favorite dealer or manufacturer to put up a sale. In that case, look into other online stores that offer tanning bulbs at a substantial discount. They, too, may have special offers or sales that you may avail of on the fly.

Shipping is a major factor in calculating the cost of acquiring new bulbs. If you can find a reliable onshore (read: not offshore, or located in another country) dealer that offers free shipping, you can save a great deal on the cost of acquiring bulbs, right off the bat. You'll get even bigger savings if this dealer happens to be generous and offer a discount on bulk buys!

Personal ads in the classifieds section of your newspaper should be among your last resorts. Used bulbs are a no-no. You may come across advertisements for bulbs that are very cheap, with the notice "only slightly used" attached to them. Never fall prey to this! The savings may be substantial, but there's a good chance the bulbs themselves will be substandard. A deal like this would be especially dodgy if the selling owner could not tell you exactly how many hours the bulbs have already used up.

In other words, the newer the bulbs, the better the tan. And while we can't say that all firsthand store-bought discount tanning bulbs have the same lifespan, at least they can more or less offer optimum tanning within an easily projectible time frame; the packs should indicate how long a bulb is expected to last, and when it would be ideal to replace them. In contrast, secondhand bulbs are simply unreliable.
