There are many reasons you may be looking for a foot massager. Maybe you are suffering from sore or tired feet. Maybe you want to get a great gift for someone. If that is the case, you may be asking yourself “Where can I buy a foot massager?”
This is a great topic to research because there are a wide range of shops online and in person that you can explore. In this post, I will show you some of the major online stores that you can buy from as well as some of the top brands that you can explore.
Major Online Stores
Online stores make the whole purchase process simple. You don’t have to leave your home, you can store your information and purchase with just one click, and shipping is often free.
If you would rather just buy from a store, you can often check a website to see if the massager that you want is in stock.
In addition, even though you cannot physically see the foot massagers, you can learn all the important details and even read real customer reviews and see videos of the massager online.
Amazon.com is the largest online retailer. You can buy just about anything from this website, especially foot massagers. Amazon carries a variety of brands including some of the top luxury brands like Brookstone. In addition, it is easy to get all of the information that you need about the massagers.
I think that it is especially useful to look at the customer reviews- but beware of the fake ones! Sometimes you come across a massager that has a really high customer rating but not one verified review or customer photo.
In my post about the best foot massager machines I point out what I believe are the best foot massagers on Amazon.
If you have Amazon Prime you can enjoy free shipping on most foot massagers. In most cases, items shipped by Amazon can be returned within 30 days of receipt of shipment. Of course, it is extremely important to check the sellers policy and whether or not it is fulilled by Amazon.
Overall, Amazon is simple to use and navigate and has a great selection of foot massagers.
Walmart may not be as huge as Amazon, but it still has a great selection of foot massages. In some ways, the selection at Walmart is better than Amazon because Walmart carries newer products that Amazon doesn’t have yet. However, the reviews are more sparse so it can be difficult to tell if a newer product is a good one.
Shopping on Walmart is easy, also. Millions of items on Walmart have free 2 day shipping without having to pay a membership fee. In addition, you can also take advantage of the free in-store pickup. Just check to make sure that the massager is in stock. It would be wise to actually call rather than just schedule a pick-up because a miscommunication can sometimes happen online.
If you are not happy with the massager that you ordered online, you can actually return, exchange, or replace it at a nearby store as long as they are not sold by dealers or resellers. In other words, it is extremely important to pay attention to the seller on walmart.com. Walmart has all sorts of benefits but these benefits don’t necessarily extend to the 3rd party sellers on Walmart.
Overall, Walmart is an excellent place to buy a back massager. You don’t need any sort of membership to get free 2 day shipping and you can return items in store. However, you need to be aware of any risks of buying from a 3rd party seller.
One of the best advantages of shopping at Target is that you can get a 5% discount if you have a redcard. You automatically can save if you shop at Target. Target has a pretty good selection of foot massagers. You are more likely to see established brands like Homedics and Human Touch at Target and less likely to see lesser known brands such as Nursal.
Target also has a price match policy, meaning that if you find a price for a lower price from a qualifying competitor, they will match the price. You can request the price match at any time of purchase.
The shipping from Target is pretty good. Depending on your purchase, you can get free shipping as well as 30 additional days to return your purchase. You can also pick up your purchases in store, same as Walmart. Just make sure that you check and double check before you pick something up in store.
Overall, Target is a fantastic place to get a foot massager. You can get free shipping, a price match, and a 5% discount if you use the redcard. They go above and beyond to make sure that you are satisfied and that you get the best price.
Bed Bath and Beyond is the reason that I even know about foot massagers. Unlike Amazon, Walmart, and Target, Bed Bath and Beyond is less broad. They don’t offer everything, like these stores but they do have a great selection of the items that they do focus on.
Bed Bath and Beyond tends to focus on more established brands such as Human Touch and Homedics, brands that are dedicated to customer satisfaction. Speaking of customer satisfaction, Bed Bath and Beyond is a good place to shop if customer reviews are important to you. Their customers are pretty vocal.
Like Walmart and Target, Bed Bath and Beyond offers free shipping as well as in-store pickup. Their free shipping offer is for standard shipping so it might take a little longer that if you used Amazon prime.
Returns at Bed, Bath, and Beyond are fairly easy, though they do not take back everything (think monogrammed items ond used baby items). It is best if you have a reciept. If you do not have one, they will work with you but the process will be more difficult.
Overall, Bed, Bath, and Beyond is offers a great selection of established foot massagers and is a pretty good place to shop.
Overstock has some of the lowest prices when it comes to foot massagers. It is not unusual to see some of the more popular foot massagers from Amazon show up on Overstock.
Overstock doesn’t have the largest selection of foot massagers but you can get good discounts on lesser known brands from there. Just glancing at Overstock, I found several foot massagers that were marked down.
The return policy is not as clearcut as, say, Walmart, but you can return most new and unopened items within 30 days. After 30 days, you can get a partial refund depending upon the condition of your foot massager.
Overall, you won’t get a huge selection of foot massagers from Overstock, but you will find great discounts for the ones that you do come across.
While shopping around for a foot massager, it helps to become acquainted with some of the bigger brand names. These brands have a reputation for quality massagers that do not break down easily.
In addition, if you search brand websites you can often discover massagers that are hidden or buried on the larger retail websites. Also, they tend to have better product descriptions of brand websites and customer service tends to be excellent if you need to call with a question.
Oftentimes, brand websites offer many of the same benefits as a larger retailer such as free shipping and easy returns. Below, I will show you some great massage brands that you should check out when shopping for a foot massager.
Human Touch has been making massagers for over 35 years. They are highly involved in developing products and even use their own patented technology in some of their foot massagers.
I would recommend checking out their website because you can easily see their whole selection of massagers. You can discover massagers that are more difficult to discover on websites like Amazon.
For many people, Brookstone is the place to get a foot massager. Their massagers are of high quality and they offer great customer service. It is also easy to try out their massagers in a store, if there is one near you.
Theraflow has an entire line of rolling foot massagers. These massagers usually cost less than the electric massagers. In addition, it is easy to transport them from place to place since they are small and you don’t need an outlet. I think that it would be a great idea to have a Theraflow massager in addition to an electric massager.
There are many wooden foot massagers that imitate the Theraflow, but the quality and design of a Theraflow massager is tough to beat.
Homedics is one of the most well-know names when it comes to massage. It is easy to find their products on Amazon, Target, and Walmart.
Even though it is fairly easy to find a Homedics massager at a retail store, you will have a wider choice if you buy directly from their website.
In conclusion, if you want to by a foot massager, you have plenty of options. You can look some of the large online stores and discover the variety of massagers that are out there. You can also learn about some of the top brands and visit their websites. Many of these brands are not as expansive as an online store, but they have many of the same benefits that they offer.
In the comments, let me know your experiences with online stores. Have they been mostly positive experiences? If they made a mistake how was the customer service?
Be sure to check out some of these stores so that you can find the best foot massager for you.
