Amazon Prime Day 2020 is back again as of today, October 13th, and we’ve been seeing a slew of deals on all sorts of fitness equipment of all shapes and sizes. It’s a little light on the treadmill front, but as you’ll see below there are a few offerings that we thought would be worth calling out. These deals are on more entry-level units for those with smaller budgets in mind, but we’re ok recommending them for those more focused on walking or jogging than running.
If you’re looking for something of higher quality, our recommendation would be to start from our list of Best Treadmills On a Budget. Those treadmills deliver better overall quality from reputable brands we trust in the industry. That said, there’s nothing wrong with wanting to stick to a tight budget if you need to, especially in these uncertain times. If that’s the situation, these picks from Amazon will get the job done for the right price.
Word to the wise, Amazon is notorious for staggering their Prime Day deals throughout the day, so if you don’t see what you’re looking for right away, best you check back in the next hour or two. It’s frustrating, but when it comes to discounts of between 20 and 45% or more, it’s worth the added effort. With that in mind, the link below is your new best friend; this is the landing page for all things treadmills on Amazon, and if there’s a deal to be had, you’ll find it here rather than spending your time searching blindly across the e-commerce giant’s pages.
Much like in previous years, the best deals and fastest shipping will come to those with an Amazon Prime membership, so we highly recommend you take the time now to sign up for a 30-day-free trial membership. This will save you time on the day of the sale, and will allow you to take full advantage of the deals found across Amazon on everything and anything you might need for your home, home gym, or elsewhere.
And now, here are the Amazon Prime Day treadmill deals we’ve seen thus far:
With a 2.5hp motor, only 6 degrees of incline, and a top speed of 9.2 miles per hour, this unit is definitely geared towards a lighter pace—a configuration that’s fine for some but not all. A 264-pound weight capacity is decent given its other specs, though its compact 47.24-inch by 16.93-inch running surface is definitely below our standards. If you’re on the shorter side, prefer a brisk walking pace to a sprint, and are both low and budget and short on space, this unit could still be a contender.
Once again playing the budget card here, this little unit has a trick under its sleeve that we’re pretty keen on. Its handrails fold flat, allowing you to tuck the treadmill under a standing desk—et voila, you have a desk treadmill! Again more of a walking and jogging unit, with a small 2.0hp motor, this machine also offers a warranty of 10 years on its frame, 2 years on its motor, and 1 year on parts, which is surprisingly on par with many of the bigger fitness equipment brands these days.
