Black Friday and hot tubs are not exactly complementary outside of internet deals which we touch on in various other articles as being a gamble when it comes to quality, customer service, and post-sales support. If you are going to purchase online then we suggest buying from an online retailer that has an excellent return policy as well as a brick and mortar presence such as Costco. Costco.com offers a very limited selection of off-brand hot tubs and very little customization, however, the Black Friday hot tub deals can be enticing if you’re looking for bang for the buck.
What about the world of brick and mortar hot tub dealers and retailers? Do they offer good Black Friday savings and specials on your more premium brands of hot tubs and accessories. The short answer is yes, however, with more limited marketing budgets and time of the year (hot tub sales are typically slower in the winter) they are less advertised so it is always best to call a handful of local dealers representing the top 10 brands and ask about the Black Friday hot tub deals. Dealers are always looking to sell these profitable items and even if they aren’t offering a formal Black Friday hot tub promotion they will at least open the door to an on the spot discount (or room for negotiation) if you are ready and willing to buy.
Another more viable option for hot tub deals is “Small Business Saturday” as it is more in line with your mom and pop hot tubs stores so if you missed Black Friday then be sure to call around for Small Business Saturday hot tub deals.
