Black Friday and hot tubs do not typically go together outside of internet promotions which we touch on in various other articles as being a gamble when it comes to getting good 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 Home Depot or 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 to get good value as well as decent post-sales support.
What about the world of brick and mortar hot tub dealers and retailers? Do they offer good Black Friday savings and specials on more premium brands of hot tubs, swim spas, 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 November and December) they are less advertised. With that said, if you’re looking for local dealer Black Friday hot tub specials then we recommend being proactive and calling your local hot tub stores who carry the top 10 brands and ask about the Black Friday hot tub promotions. 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.
