NordicTrack (owned by iFIT) has quietly made significant changes to the pricing on some of their equipment. One of the biggest changes is that you no longer have to pay extra for shipping and assembly on the S22i and S15i Studio Cycles.
In the past, I have suggested that it makes the most sense to purchase NordicTrack equipment like the S22i Studio Cycle on Amazon. This is because it was the same cost, and Amazon included free shipping (whereas NordicTrack was charging $199 for delivery).
Now, a lot of that has changed.
The NordicTrack S22i and S15i have both gone up in price on Amazon by $200. The price has not increased on the NordicTrack website, which would make the purchase after shipping the same price.
But now, the S22i and S15i offers free shipping and free assembly when ordered through the NordicTrack website, so purchasing through its website is now the better deal.
The same free shipping and installation has also been added to the NordicTrack Vault (which I just reviewed), as well as the fusion CST and Fusion CST Pro.
Unfortunately, treadmills, rowers, and ellipticals do not yet seem to come with free shipping and installation. Currently on the website they still show as $199 for shipping, and that doesn’t include installation. I wouldn’t be surprised to see this change in the future, and I did notice that the X321 did get a sudden $200 price drop.
