How to Get Refurbished Peloton Bikes?

Peloton doesn’t always announce the sale or reconditioning of bikes. They do occasionally announce the sale of refurbished bikes, but not always.

Due to the limited supply of bikes for sale, the Peloton bike refurbished offer is only available in a few states. Peloton sent emails to eligible digital app users during the September 2021 sale. If you did not receive the email from Peloton, you would be disqualified.

Once you have received the email, you should immediately log onto the Peloton website to apply for the offer. Unfortunately, the number of offers is usually not enough to meet the demand.

You can ask a friend who is a Peloton member to update your account in case of sales if you aren’t a member of the digital app. You can then use their account to purchase the bike, as the offer only applies to active digital app users. As in the previous case, you should apply immediately for the offer.

Talk to a Peloton representative. They will always be aware of any refurb bike sales. You can ask them to put you on the list. You might end up at the top of the list. You might be the first one to ask for the season, giving yourself an advantage.

Where Does Peloton Get the Refurbished Bikes?

Every Peloton fan was eager to test the new model after Peloton introduced the new Peloton bicycle plus. This group included people who had previously bought the standard Peloton bicycle. Peloton offered standard bike owners the option to exchange their bikes for the new plus model. They would pay $700 more to get the bike plus than the $2495.

Peloton received thousands of bikes in return for the new bike plus. These bikes included bikes that were relatively recent and others that were as old or as new as the Peloton platform.

Peloton also offers a one-year warranty for all bike owners. Peloton will replace your bike if it has a major problem this year. Peloton also offers a 30-day return policy. Peloton offers a 30-day return guarantee if customers are not satisfied with their bikes.

These are the reasons why Peloton has used bikes that they repair and resell.

Is it worth the cost to purchase a refurbished bicycle?

At $300 less than the regular price, is it worth buying a used Peloton? Unscientific review of comments in this Reddit thread has led me to conclude that users are divided.

Refurbished peloton bike from pelotoncycle

Many people said that they finally “pulled the trigger” on a Peloton. They were compelled to take action by the offer. Others felt that $300 was not enough to buy a new bike with a longer warranty.

That is what I understand. This was my conclusion when I considered buying a new or used Peloton. It seemed like a better deal to pay a bit more for a bike, but have the assurance of coverage.

Important to remember that my example was used for purchasing a second Peloton for our vacation home. We purchased the Bike Plus. Our first Peloton was an OG bike. It was purchased in 2016.

Except for a pedal problem in 2016, when we received it back, and Peloton sent us new pedals free of charge under their warranty, we haven’t had any problems with this bike. I just wrote that down on my wooden desk to not jinx the bike. A warranty is great for peace of mind. However, if you are lucky, it may not be necessary in the long-term.
