There are a few factors to consider when determining the best time to buy a hot tub. Some people may prefer to purchase a hot tub during the off-season, when prices are typically lower and there is less demand for the product. The off season tends to be during the fall and winter months of October thru February. Many dealers tend to offload floor models or overstock inventory around this time of year to make way for new models and/or next year’s models. Others may prefer to purchase a hot tub during the peak season, when the weather is warm and there is more opportunity to spend time in the backyard and use it.
One of the key factors to consider when deciding when to buy a hot tub is the availability of promotions and discounts. Many hot tub retailers offer promotions and discounts at different times of the year such as home shows or state fairs, so it can be beneficial to wait for these promotions if you are looking to get a good deal on a hot tub.
It is also worth considering the availability of promotional financing options when deciding the best time to purchase a hot tub or swim spa. Some spa retailers and dealers offer financing options or special financing promotions at certain times of the year, which can make it more affordable to purchase a hot tub. Specials such as “12 months same and cash” or low interest rate financing can make for buying opportunities.
In the end, the best time to buy a hot tub will depend on your individual circumstances and priorities. If you are flexible with your timing and willing to wait for a promotion or discount, you may be able to get a better deal on a hot tub. However, if you are eager to start using a hot tub and the weather is good, it may be worth purchasing a hot tub sooner rather than later.
Special Note: The last few years have been an anomaly for the hot tub industry as it saw unprecedented demand and major supply chain disruptions due to the pandemic. However, the last few months have seen a downward shift in demand and an oversupply of hot tubs sitting in dealer’s inventory around the country. There’s probably not been a better time to purchase in the last 3 years than now.
