Discount Treadmill: 3 Ways To Save When Buying A Treadmill

Aug 17, 2007
Most people looking to buy a treadmill are interested in getting a discount. We all want to save money and get a higher quality product right?

So where can you go to find huge discounts on brand name treadmills? There are several legitimate ways to get a discount treadmill which I'll outline in this article.

Please note however that I'm not saying: 'buy a cheap treadmill'. With treadmills, you definitely don't want to skimp on quality.

A cheap, unstable treadmill with improper cushioning and low quality parts will not only cost you in repairs but in health. You can ruin your joints and cause long term health damage.

So I'm not saying 'Go cheap' with your treadmill. What I am saying is that there ARE several ways to get a high quality treadmill for a discount price. Here they are:

#1) Buy From An Online Fitness Store

There are several online fitness stores that sell a large variety of brand name treadmills directly to you. Because they are not paying the overhead costs of a store, these savings get passed on to you and you can often save hundreds of dollars on a brand name treadmill.

Plus, most of these stores will give you free shipping (which can save you up to $150). And you can even save on sales tax in some areas.

One note of caution: Not all fitness stores are alike. Make sure you buy from an online store that offers proven experience shipping treadmills, secure online ordering and a solid money-back guarantee (a 30 - 60 day money back guarantee is standard with treadmills).

#2) Buy Directly From The Treadmill Manufacturer

Some treadmill manufacturers will sell their treadmills directly to the consumer. By skipping the middleman (the store) you also save on the mark up price that the store has to add to make a profit.

This can, again, save you hundreds of dollars and get you a brand name treadmill for a discount price. Like online stores, when you buy directly online from the treadmill manufacturer, you also can usually get free shipping and even save on sales tax.

Again, remember to buy from a manufacturer that offers secure ordering and a 30 - 60 day money back guarantee.

#3) Buy A Used Treadmill

While I don't really recommend this, some people save money by purchasing a used treadmill.

The main drawback to this option is that there is no warranty to protect your investment. If your treadmill breaks down you're either out the money to fix it or out the money you spent to buy it (if you choose not to repair the treadmill).

If you do decide to go this route, make sure you know the make and model of the treadmill and that you've checked the store price of the treadmill. This will give you more bargaining power and ensure you don't overpay for the treadmill.

So those are several ways to get a legitimate discount on your treadmill. Just remember to keep in mind what you need before buying a treadmill and you'll be well on your way to getting the most from your home treadmill!
