When Is The Best Time To Buy A Hot Tub

“When is the best time to buy a hot tub?” is often a question we hear when speaking to potential new hot tubbers that either walk in to or call our store. Our response usually is, “Well, what matters most to you?”. By this we mean, is it saving the most amount of money, getting the best financing offer, or having your hot tub by a certain date? There are so many things to factor in when deciding when the best time to buy a hot tub is, for YOU! Ultimately, that’s what it comes down to. So, what is going to make you happy with your hot tub purchase? Start there, and then check out what we’ve laid out below for the Best Time To Buy A Hot Tub.

Special Offers $$$

Ask your local hot tub dealers what their current special offers are. Usually local dealers have monthly promotions based on what their manufacturer is offering for the month. Some potential offers are listed below.

Financing: If you don’t want to shell out the money for a hot tub, wait for a 0% APR offer to pop up at a local dealer. At HealthMate Hot Tubs, we usually have a 0% APR promotion a few times per year!

Instant Rebates or $$$ off: A great option for those that don’t really care for financing, but want the best possible price when purchasing a hot tub.

Warehouse Sales: Warehouse Sales or Truckload sales will usually have the absolutely the lowest possible prices on hot tubs. This is usually because the dealership orders in larger quantities allowing them to save money on the entire spa order. So, if you see one of these promotions, BUY!

End of year or new year clearance sales: Another great time to buy if your ultimate goal is to save money is either the end of the year or the beginning of the year. Often times, dealerships will have inventory they want to get rid of to make room for new inventory. They also have specific quotas that need to be met!


Ask For Cash Savings $$$

If there aren’t any special offers at the local dealership you want to purchase from, ask if they can give you a cash or check deal. Unfortunately, there’s no getting around paying sales tax. However, by paying cash or check, the dealership can save on processing fees. This can save you hundreds of dollars!


What is your timeframe?

If you’re new to shopping for hot tubs, just like nearly every other product during this pandemic, they’re in very high demand. Manufacturers are having trouble getting certain materials to build hot tubs quickly enough to satisfy demand. So, your timeline is very important to consider when trying to figure out when the best time to buy a hot tub is. If you’re looking to have a hot tub by a certain holiday or season, or you have a project that needs a hot tub by a certain time, check with your local dealer to see what the wait time is. If you’re going to be waiting 6-12 months for a hot tub, the best time to buy is NOW.


Beware hot tub expo’s

Although they’re heavily advertised & tempting to take advantage of – BEWARE. Often times, these expo’s sell any brand hot tub at high volume and high prices to make as much profit as possible. They are sold straight from the manufacturer which means there are no local dealers that are able to help you with the delivery, installation, and servicing of your hot tub. So, usually you’re left to figure out all of the details from preparation to maintenance of the hot tub. If you’re a person who likes to do things on your own & can fix nearly anything, you might be just fine with this experience. However, also be aware that these hot tubs usually aren’t known for their quality and performance.

Best Time To Buy A Hot Tub Summary

So, when is the best time to buy a hot tub? Ultimately, as we said before, it comes down to your timeframe and your ultimate hot tub purchasing goal (saving money, 0% financing, in stock hot tub etc.). Check with your local dealer often about their monthly promotions, ask if they have your preferred promotion coming up, and ask about delivery timelines. Make the best decision that meets most of the goals you have set for your hot tub shopping experience. Also, make sure you’re always purchasing from a reputable dealership. It’s so important for your overall hot tub ownership experience.
