Black Friday Treadmill Sales Are Here…Get Ready!
It’s that time of year again…you know…post Halloween, pre Thanksgiving, weather is getting cold and you’re running outside less and less.
It’s time to start thinking about finally buying that new treadmill for your home so you can work out through the winter without freezing your behind off.
Well you’re in luck. The 2018 Black Friday treadmill deals are here, followed by Cyber Monday sales, and there’s no better time to pull the trigger on a new machine.
Most of the major manufacturers offer significant discounts, even up to 50% on brands like NordicTrack and ProForm, two companies known for giving great deals during the holidays.
Here are a few tips to make your Black Friday treadmill shopping easier:
UPDATE: Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals are currently on. See the best sale prices here.
1. Do your research ahead of time. That will, you will have an idea of which treadmills you like so you’re ready when the time comes. For example, if you have it narrowed down to two models, but one is heavily discounted while the other not so much, it will make your final decision much easier.
You can start with our Best Treadmill section and work your way from there.
2. If you see something you like, don’t wait! This especially holds true for closeout models, where you’ll get some great Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, but inventory might be limited.
Oftentimes, companies will give additional discounts on treadmills that are being discontinued just to get them out the door. And there is nothing wrong with them, they are just making room for the new models. They may even run out of newer models and you might get stuck with a higher price or long wait for delivery. So jump on a deal if you see it!
3. You might see some pre Black Friday or pre Cyber Monday treadmills deals…these are often as good as the ones they give on the actual day. So if you see a great price on a treadmill a few days before, don’t hesitate to buy. Also, you can get it over with and avoid the rush that sometimes slows down the manufacturer’s sites.
Are Cyber Monday treadmill sales as good as Black Friday?
That’s a question we get a lot here at Run Reviews. And it’s a very difficult question to answer.
In year’s past, Black Friday deals were much better than Cyber Monday’s. Recently, however, we’ve actually seen some better treadmill deals on Cyber Monday. Perhaps it has something to do with leftover inventory that they have to move.
For example, let’s say ProForm is replacing the Sport 7.5 model that we’ve seen under their Limited Time Offers umbrella for quite some time. They have 1000 units left, and it’s on sale at $799 for Black Friday. Come Monday, they still have 85 left and they need to move them to make way for the replacement model. You might see it on sale on Cyber Monday for $699 so those last 85 are sure to move.
However, most of the time the best deals are on Black Friday, and although the discount might remain throughout the weekend, it won’t likely go down, especially on continuing models.
So if you see something you like on Black Friday, by all means pull the trigger and buy it then. It’s likely a very good price that you might not see again!
