Getting discounted hammocks is a lot easier than you might think. If you’re going to buy your hammock in the middle of the spring or summer, you will probably expect to pay a higher price. If you wait to buy a hammock until fall or winter, it will be much easier to find discounted hammocks, as retailers will be trying to get rid of excess stock.
You can also find discounted hammocks at overstock retailers such as Big Lots, and also online at places like Overstock.com. Shopping online is a very easy way to comparison shop, and it sure beats driving from store to store looking for the best deal.
Even if you are shopping for a hammock during peak seasons, you can keep your eye on the local sales circulars. Sometimes you can find really good deals in these sale papers if you are patient.
Online auction sites are another great locale for discounted hammocks. Many people grow tired of their hammocks, or move to a place that doesn’t have a lot of space for one, and they may sell one in very good condition at a very low price. You can often get good discounts on brand new items at these online auction sites, as well. Fierce competition keeps prices very reasonable at these sites for everyday merchandise. In fact, some people sell at just pennies above wholesale, making their money through mass volume and shipping and handling.
Just remember, it is ALWAYS best to shop during off-peak seasons. If you are shopping during spring and summer, prices are going to be higher on average than they will be if you buy your hammock in the colder months. It may be harder to find hammocks locally during the cold months, but when you do, you will probably get a great deal.
You can also post a wanted message on local bulletin boards or classified ad websites. Just put a note that you want to buy a hammock in good condition, and how much you are willing to pay. Be sure to describe the type of hammock you want.
One last thing to keep in mind is to ask around to your friends and family. Someone you know may own a hammock that they no longer use and would be willing to sell to you very cheaply, or even give to you!
There are plenty of ways to get discounted hammocks if you’re willing to put a little effort into it. I wish you the best of luck!
