#2) Buy Directly From The Treadmill Manufacturer
Some treadmill manufacturers will sell their treadmills directly to consumer. By skipping middleman (the store) you also save on mark up price that 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 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 money to fix it or out money you spent to buy it (if you choose not to repair treadmill).
If you do decide to go this route, make sure you know make and model of treadmill and that you've checked store price of treadmill. This will give you more bargaining power and ensure you don't overpay for treadmill.
So those are several ways to get a legitimate discount on your treadmill. For a list of treadmill manufacturers visit:
Enjoy and have fun!
