How Much Should I Expect To Spend On A Hot Tub From Costco?
There are two spa brands available to purchase through the Costco website, Aquaterra Spas and Evolution Spas. Costco offers very affordable spas, most cost well under $10,000.
The cheapest Aquaterra Spas model starts at $2,499 increasing to $6,699 for the most expensive spa. Evolution Spas models are slightly more expensive, starting at $3,999, and going up to $8,999. These are the basic starting prices so if you choose any upgrades, you will pay more money.
Costco also sells other brands, for example, Bullfrog Spas, Strong Spas, and Divine Hot Tubs at some of their roadshows. These events are run all over the country and you can often buy a brand not usually stocked by Costco at a heavily discounted price.
There are some additional costs to take into account before making your spa purchase. When working out your budget, don't forget about delivery and installation costs.
Bear in mind that some spa models, in particular, plug-and-play spas have a lower installation cost. They can just be plugged into a standard electrical socket and you don't need to hire an electrician for the wiring.

Benefits Of Purchasing A Spa From Costco
You can find Costco hot tubs for sale in-store, on their website, and at a Costco Roadshow, and you might notice that their prices are much lower than those of a traditional hot tub dealer. Costco's business model involves bulk buying their products and then passing on some of those savings to their customers.
If you are after a particular hot tub brand that doesn't appear on the Costco website and are not in a rush to make a purchase, it is worth checking out one of their roadshows.
Big-name spa brands such as Strong Spas, Divine Hot Tubs, and Bullfrog spas often crop up and you could find a great deal on a fancy hot tub or even a swim spa.
These events happen all over the country and you have to have a Costco membership to make a purchase but you can find details about this and which brand to expect at a roadshow on the Costco website.
Great Returns Policy
Costco has an excellent returns policy, if you aren't 100% satisfied with your hot tub purchase, it is possible to get a refund.
Make sure you read the small print and you understand what to do if you aren't happy with your spa before you the money changes hands.
Downsides Of Purchasing A Spa From Costco
Costco currently offers ten hot tubs online. These models are very much entry-level to mid-range hot tubs so it's great if you don't want to spend too much money.
If you are after a really fancy luxury hot tub with loads of high-end features, you might be able to find something suitable if you wait for a roadshow, but this may need some patience.
No Swim Spas
Swim spas are a combination of a pool and a spa or hot tub. Now often, customers may decide to go for one of these rather than a regular hot tub since you get the hydrotherapy advantages of a spa and exercise options of a pool in one.
At the moment Costco doesn't stock swim spas however it is possible that a swim spa brand may appear at a roadshow.
If you are looking for an affordable, good-quality hot tub then Costco offers a decent selection of models, that definitely won't break the bank plus their returns policy gives you extra peace of mind.
You can enjoy all the hot tub therapeutic benefits of hydrotherapy in the comfort of your own backyard with Costco hot tubs. I hope your search for the perfect hot tub model has come to an end!
