There are several options to consider when buying your own popcorn machine. The first is buying directly from the manufacturer. Buying directly from the manufacturer can save you substantial amounts of time and money. A few minutes surfing the internet and you can find dozens of manufacturers of popcorn machines. Feel free to check out the manufacturers on this site but be sure to conduct your own search, as manufacturers and resellers both will come and go.
Remember that this is a great place to check out warranties and your ability to actually contact a manufacturer directly to test lines of communication, so find a contact number and start dialing away.
Another great option is to buy from an authorized reseller. This is always a good way to go if you want to save some money on a quality machine. With an authorized reseller you may be able to buy both discounted factory overstock or slightly blemished popcorn machines (though these are also often available directly from the manufacturer as well).
Because resellers receive potentially deep discounts from manufacturers they often turn these savings directly over to their customers and you may find rock bottom deals that are practically wholesale. This is a great way to get a best deal on a good looking old fashioned popcorn machine.
Two examples of reseller sites are MotorCityPopcorn and Superior Popcorn, both resellers of Great Northern Popcorn models and good illustrations of competing resellers with competitive prices.
Another fantastic online resource that saves both time and money is using comparison shopping sites. I have used NexTag and mySimon to compare prices on practically everything in my kitchen and found both sites helpful when buying both popcorn machines and popcorn supplies.
Comparison websites are easy to navigate and allow you to view multiple sellers of the same machine and product. Using these sites is simple and can end up saving you a ton of time.
First choose a comparison shopping site. Enter the popcorn machine model you are interested in comparing into the site’s search engine and sort by any filter available.
