This time of year you can find “great” deals on hot tubs everywhere you look. Many places are clearing out last year’s inventory, but how do you know if you are actually getting a great deal? This guide will help you navigate through buying a discounted hot tub, so you can know that you are getting a great deal!
Buy Brick and Mortar
Nearly all retailers are going to be discounting at least some of their hot tubs. That means that you have no reason to purchase from an online retailer or a traveling gig that is only in town for a short time. You can find a great deal at your local dealer who is going to be there for the long haul. If long term support isn’t part of the package, you really aren’t getting a great deal.
Know What is Included
As you are looking for that great deal, be sure you know what is included with the discounted price. It is especially important to find out if delivery and installation are included. If they are not included in the price, be sure to find out what the fees will be so that you know what your bottom line will actually total.
You want to make sure that you know up front if your discounted hot tub still comes with a warranty. Some could come with limited warranties or no warranties at all. This could set the stage for a great deal that actually ends up costing you in the long run.
When looking at discounted hot tubs, don’t sacrifice the things that you want out of a hot tub just because you can get a great deal. Ultimately, if the tub you purchase doesn’t fit your needs, you won’t be satisfied. Buyer’s remorse can ruin best of deals. Go into your purchase with a clear mind, knowing what features you want and why you need those features. Buying a hot tub that actually meets your needs will ensure that you enjoy it for years to come, getting a great deal is just icing on the cake.
Considering what’s included, what kind of warranty you are going to get, and making sure you don’t sacrifice your needs will help you know whether that great deal is really a great deal or not.
