Where to find the cheapest hot tub deals

Hot tub deals December 2023

Best hot tub deals

CosySpa 4-Person Inflatable Hot Tub | £199.99 at Amazon

CosySpa 4-Person Inflatable Hot Tub | £199.99 at Amazon
This inflatable CosySpa hot tub doesn't need to be on sale to be great value. There's a 4 or 6-Person option available and both offer spacious capacity at great price points, especially compared to the cheapest Lay-Z-Spa deal right now, which offers less room for more money.

Miami Hot Tub | was £499

Lay-Z-Spa 2-4 Person Miami Hot Tub | was £499 now £244.99 at Amazon
Currently one of the cheapest Lay-Z-Spa hot tub deals available, the Lay-Z-Spa Miami inflatable hot tub isn't huge, but if there are only two of you using it then this is a great option for soaking your cares away. It benfits from Lay-Z-Spa's usual easy set-up and 120 massaging airjets to aid your relaxation.

Hot Tub | Was £349

Lay-Z-Spa 2-4 Person Cancun Hot Tub | Was £349 Now £269.97 at Appliances Direct
Another cheap Lay-Z-Spa hot tub deal, the compact Cancun hot tub is similarly small at just 669 litres, but it's the perfect place for two to soak in the bubbles. It ups the ante slightly with 140 massaging airjets and benefits from Lay-Z-Spa's 'FreezeShield' technology for year-round use.

Hawaii Hot Tub | was £699.00

Lay-Z-Spa 4-6 Person Hawaii Hot Tub | was £699.00 now £348.99 at Amazon
What's the difference between a round hot tub and a square one? To be honest not much other than personal preference, and the fact that sometimes a square design can be a better fit in smaller spaces. Either way, if you prefer the look, then this square Lay-Z-Spa inflatable is now better than half-price and its larger capacity means there's room for 4+ users at once.

Lay-Z-Spa Hollywood Built-in LED Light Inflatable Hot Tub | was £699.00

Lay-Z-Spa Hollywood Built-in LED Light Inflatable Hot Tub | was £699.00 now £412.94 at Amazon
Want to really get the party started? Then this Lay-Z-Spa hot tub with built-in LED lights is the way to do it. The remote‑controlled multi‑coloured LED lighting shines through the semi‑transparent liner to illuminate the water and creates patterns through the designs outside the liner. Choose from 7 colourways to light up the night.

Lay-Z-Spa Helsinki 7-Person Inflatable Hot Tub | was £899.99

Lay-Z-Spa Helsinki 7-Person Inflatable Hot Tub | was £899.99 now £499.99 at Robert Dyas
A spacious inflatable that's ideal for families or parties, the Helsinki is somewhat unique in its thin, rigid inflatable walls that means it holds 1123 litres of water. More stylish than most thanks to its wood-effect exterior it also offers 180 airjets and an anti-freeze feature for year-round use.

Sale shopping advice

There are a few key points worth mentioning to help you find the right hot tub for you:

Size: Thinking about how many people will regularly use your hot tub at any one time is one of the most important aspects to consider before you buy. Hot tub capacities can often be a little optimistic, so if a hot tub says it will fit four people, then that can often mean four adults will fit seated, but, it’s likely to be a fairly snug fit – and not necessarily the relaxing experience you envisaged. Fine for a one-off evening, but if there will regularly be four people using the spa at once, sizing up to a six-person capacity is likely to be a decision you won’t regret.

Water capacity: One of the best ways to compare hot tubs – rather than relying on the manufacturer’s guidance on how many people can fit comfortably which can differ between brands – is to compare water capacity. This will give a truer picture of the internal space a hot tub offers – and you might find some ‘4-person’ hot tubs that are actually roomier than those advertised as ‘6-person’ this way.

That said, the more water your hot tub holds, the more that water's going to cost to heat. Make sure to check out our guide to how much does it cost to run a hot tub for the latest energy calculations.

Airjets: The airjets are what create those relaxing bubbles we all love, so generally the more of them the better in an inflatable hot tub. This differs slightly in hardshell Plug & Play hot tubs which generally have a lesser number of more powerful jets.

When to shop

The best time to look out for hot tub deals is generally as the summer season is drawing to a close; between between August and October in the UK. This is when retailers launch end-of-season sales to clear summer stock and free up space in-store and online for Christmas stock. 

Of course, that tends to mean that the weather for enjoying your new purchase is coming to an end, but if you don't mind storing your bargains away for the year ahead, then shopping for a hot tub deal at the end of the season is a great way to save cash. Plus, if you opt for a hot tub that has an anti-freeze feature then the fun needn't stop and you'll be able to use your hot tub all year round.

That said, retailers can launch hot tub deals earlier in the season too, especially if spring weather has been wet and cool and they're getting nervous about sitting on excess summer stock.

If you have your eye on a particular piece then the best way to stay in the loop regarding sales is to sign up to the brand's email newsletter, this way you're likely to be the first to hear about hot tub sales when prices drop – or you could bookmark this hot tub deals page, of course!

Amazon Prime Day hot tub deals

Amazon Prime Day – the brand's yearly price-slashing event – can mean some great Prime Day hot tub deals. 

This year, Prime Day hot tub deals ran from the 11th to the 12th of July, with some particularly good Prime Day Lay-Z-Spa hot tub deals on offer.

Usually, Prime Day hot tub deals are a once-a-year event, although in 2022 Amazon did launch a second price-slashing event in October. Keep an eye on our Amazon Prime Day deals to be the first to hear if details of a second event are unveiled this year.

In the meantime, you could sign up for Amazon Prime membership so you're all set to shop when the next Prime Day hot tub deals take place. Generally, you need to be a Prime member to take advantage of the biggest discounts on Prime Day. You can sign up or renew your membership below.

Black Friday hot tub deals

The term 'Black Friday' originated in the US to denote the first day following Thanksgiving when retailers would cut prices to draw holidaymakers to shop their store's sales. Driven by global brands, the price-slashing event soon crossed the pond, and now Black Friday – closely followed by Cyber Monday – has become one of the UK's biggest consumer extravaganzas, rivaling traditional Boxing Day sales. 

Often hailed as the biggest shopping day of the year, Black Friday always falls on the last Friday of November, so the next time it will roll around is Friday 24th November 2023.

That said, in recent years, the event has spread to encompass more than just one day, with retailers starting Black Friday discounting earlier and earlier so that a full Black Friday 'week' of discounts isn't uncommon. Last year, we even saw retailers running Black Friday promotions throughout the whole month of November.

Whether or not you agree with the rampant consumerism Black Friday has now come to represent, there's no denying it can be a great time for Black Friday hot tub deals and Cyber Monday hot tub deals. Although some lines may have already sold out in the end-of-summer sales, if there is still hot tub stock around by Black Friday then it's likely to be discounted to very good price.

Last year, Black Friday hot tub deals saw some great prices on popular Lay-Z-Spa models, so we'll be keeping our eye out for all this year's top Black Friday hot tub deals and Cyber Monday hot tub deals as they drop.
