Elliptical Deals: 4 Ways to Find a Bargain

You can get some good elliptical deals on name brand machines from Precor, Smooth, NordicTrack, and more. Not only are ellipticals great for your body and cardiovascular health, you can find a quality machine that fits your budget.

Clearance Specials & Returns

One of the first places to look for a deal is with elliptical trainer clearance specials, which are usually discontinued models. For example, Smooth Fitness is well known for its line of trainers that offer a fluid elliptical motion and quality construction, making them highly sought-after machines. Your best bet is to check the website regularly until the model(s) you are interested in become available at the price range you want. Special sales and discounts last only a week so you need to be quick when these elliptical deals become available.

Open-box models (i.e., “returns”) from Smooth also give home users a chance to buy at a discounted price. The reason for these returns varies: the buyer may have refused the shipment, it could be a slightly used model that was returned during the 30-day free trial period, or perhaps the unit was slightly damaged in shipping.

Once they are returned to Smooth, however, these ellipticals are fully tested and evaluated, and then reboxed. While some units may have scratches or other cosmetic blemishes, the trainers functions like new. As a bonus, they are sold with a full warranty even though you are getting them at a clearance price. The only catch with these deals is that they are not available with the 30-day home trial, and only curbside delivery is offered.

E-Mail Special Offers

You can sign up at the manufacturers’ websites and receive email alerts for special offers. Companies with online websites such as NordicTrack and ProForm promise exclusive pricing to registered participants. Just fill in the form at the website and receive alerts on elliptical deals as well as treadmills, bikes, incline trainers, steppers, skiers, and strength training equipment.

Reconditioned Models

Finding the better elliptical deals and clearance specials on cross trainers isn’t limited to cheap ellipticals. Virtually all levels of elliptical trainers can be had for a better price than the MSRP. For example, we have articles about the advantages of buying used elliptical machines – most of which are high-end reconditioned models that were in service in health clubs and hotels. Rebuilt from the ground up, these refurbished commercial models are then sold for up to 60% off their original commercial price. You get a phenomenal machine that will last for years.

Promo Codes

We have posted promo codes (a discount code used at checkout) throughout this website for you to grab and use whenever they are offered by a manufacturer. The code may be good for a particular model only, or for a period of time on all models. The savings can be anywhere from 5% to 20% off, and since most manufacturers offer free shipping, these are some of the best elliptical deals you will find. They are easy to use – simply write down the code and keep it handy. You will need to enter it during the checkout phase of your purchase. Good luck and happy bargain hunting!
