Did you know that you are more likely to research elliptical machines at Amazon than most any other site on the web? It is because the giant retailer has an industry-leading reputation for trust, value, and dependability according to Forbes online.
Amazon.com, Inc. was founded in 1994 by Jeff Bezos as a web bookstore and was one of the first websites to popularize online shopping. The name was chosen to reflect the Amazon, not only one of the largest rivers in the world, but a name that suggests a large, mammoth size. Amazon is now the largest online retailer in the United States, and maintains separate websites for Canada, Germany, France, Italy, Great Britain, Japan, and China.
You can find just about every brand and model of elliptical machines at Amazon.
The top sellers include Precor, Proform, Horizon, Kettler, Life Fitness, Schwinn, Smooth, Sole, Stamina, Star Trac, Weslo, and many more. Not only will you find the very latest models, you can also get great deals on discontinued models until they sell out, special sale item weekends, affordable remanufactured commercial models, and even slightly used models.
With Amazon’s competitive pricing policy, it is rare that you will find an elliptical priced lower anywhere else on the web. In addition, they offer all types of trainers from the cheapest under-$100 manual trainers to high-end health club ellipticals that sell for thousands of dollars.
Since feedback from current and prior owners is important to would-be buyers before making a major purchase such as an elliptical machine, Amazon provides an easy way for users to submit comments and reviews. It does not delete negative comments so you are sure to get honest feedback on a product. In addition, reviewers rate a product on a scale of one to five stars, with one being the lowest score and five stars indicating the product is superior and exceeds expectations.
Elliptical machines at Amazon are available from either Amazon directly or from a third party merchant (a “Seller”). If you need to return a product to Amazon for a refund or exchange, check at the website’s easy Online Returns Center to request a pickup and read instructions regarding any restocking fees or restrictions. If you need to return an elliptical fulfilled by a seller, it must be returned directly to the seller according to their return guidelines.
With Amazon’s Super Saver Shipping rate, you can get your elliptical trainer shipped free to a U.S. address. The machine’s information page will say “Eligible for FREE Super Saver Shipping” next to the price. Orders are generally delivered within a week to 8 business days.
Generally, you will find most buyers who experienced problems with a malfunctioning or defective machine included comments in their reviews that Amazon’s customer service department was responsive to issues and made the return process trouble-free. With everything considered, the low competitive price, free shipping, complete item description, user feedback, and helpful customer service are the top reasons online shoppers choose to buy elliptical machines at Amazon.
