If you’re in the market to buy a pull up bar, your timing couldn’t be better. Pull up bars are giving you more value for your money every year. In fact according to a recent Runner’s World article:
“Today’s pull up bars are better than ever. In particular, most brands have improved their stability and controls. Meanwhile, they continue to offer a dazzling variety of features.”
If you’re buying a pull up bar no doubt you want to get the best price. Having been researching and reviewing pull up bars for over 3 years, I’ve seen some killer deals and some completely overblown, overpriced exercise equipment.
I’ve also seen the same pull up bar offered at vastly different prices – sometimes the difference is as much as $800! And people are still buying the overpriced items!
There are ways to getting the best price that many people don’t know about. So to help you save some money, here are 3 key tips to getting the best price on your home gym apparatus:
#1 Buy Online
If you want to save money, buy online. This is the case with most items from computers to DVD’s to electronics and especially pull up bars. Because when you buy online, the dealer doesn’t have to pay to rent a storefront, pay salespeople, water, heat, and other establishment costs. They can ship directly from their warehouse, saving a lot of money and in turn these savings are passed on to you in the form of lower prices.
Obviously you don’t want to just buy from anyone online. Make sure the online pull up bar dealer offers secure ordering, prevalent contact information (phone numbers, email, online help, address), at least a 30 day money back guarantee and of course – a high quality product. It also helps if they offer customer and/or expert testimonials.
#2 Buy Direct From the Brand Manufacturer
Buying your pull up bar direct from the manufacturer means you skip the middleman (i.e. the store), which always has to mark up an item to make their profit (and pay their employees, rent, etc.) There are several pull up bar manufacturers that sell online direct to the consumer at wholesale prices and it’s a great way to get a brand name pull up bar for a discount price.
Also, if you watch closely, many manufacturers will drop their prices even more when they are phasing out a certain model. I’ve seen a $1500 treadmill go for $899 when the manufacturer was trying to close the model out.
Again, make sure these dealers offer secure ordering, prevalent contact information, at least a 30 day money back guarantee and high quality.
#3 Save on Shipping and Sales Tax
Whether it’s an online store or an online store, many online dealers offer you free shipping. Some offer free shipping all the time whereas others offer it at certain times of the month.
Shipping your pull up bar can cost you as much as $200 – so why pay for it if you can get it free? I’ve yet to see an actual physical store offer free shipping on pull up bars – it’s always an add on at the cash register.
Another area where you can save money is on sales tax. Many online dealers won’t charge you sales tax (depending on the state) which can also save you a considerable amount on your purchase.
So those are 3 key ways to get the best price on your pull up bar. If you want a list of the most popular online stores and pull up bar manufacturers run a Google search online.
That’s it – follow these 3 tips and you’ll easily save hundreds on your next order for home gym apparatus.
