Top 12 Ways To Save Money On Gun Safes in 2024

Buying a gun safe is no easy task; saving money when buying a gun safe is even harder. However, there are ways to save money on pretty much any gun safe out there; it just takes some patience and some know-how.

So, how do you save money when shopping for a gun safe? To save money when shopping for a gun safe, you should be joining manufacturer and retailer email lists. Don’t trust that the most popular retailers have the cheapest and best pricing, and when in doubt, ask for a discount!

Let’s dig in a little more, talk about this, and give you even more ideas to start saving money on your gun safe buying journey!

1. Join email lists

Most every gun safe manufacturer and retailer out there has an email list that they send out emails to! For them, this is the best way to get people to their site looking at their products. In these emails are regular discounts that you may not know about unless you were on that list.

Make sure to sign up for an email list with your favorite retailers and favorite safe manufacturers to see if they will send discounts. I am personally signed up for quite a few, and I get a lot of discounts. One of my personal favorites is SecureIt Gun Storage (which you’ll find on this list), as they always feature different products that they are having special sales on.

2. Shop manufacturer direct

A lot of manufacturers sell their product directly on their website. Many times it’s the same or similar price as you will find anywhere else, and they will know their product better than anyone else. Now this isn’t always the case, and in fact could be considerably more expensive than retailers! So don’t rely on this one only, and always shop around.

3. Don’t trust that major websites will have the lowest prices.

Just because a retailer is huge, doesn’t mean that it is going to be the least expensive to buy from! You should always shop for your gun safe at smaller online retailers, and even local stores. These companies are generally specialized in gun safes, and can both get you the best support, but also the best price due to their relationship with the manufacturer.

4. Ask for discounts

It never hurts to ask! If you are someone who really likes to save money, and is comfortable having an awkward conversation, then just asking for a discount is a great way to lower the price.

The easiest way to do this is to call and get someone on the phone to see if they have coupon codes or manual discounts that they might be able to offer you.

Many retailers will also give a military discount in the gun safe industry, so make sure to make that call to see if that applies to you (do not lie about this).

5. Shop at certain times of the year

It is no secret that shopping for gun safe at a particular time of the year can make all of the difference! You can get great deals during the Christmas season, along with black Friday and that time.

Another great time is Memorial Day and any other veteran or military-based Holiday, as retailers like to give extra discounts to those people who sacrificed so much.

6. Consider the cost of having movers move the safe.

Now, as we move a bit away from retailer, and purchase point ideas, we should also talk about other costs that come along with buying a gun safe, and how to save money there.

In this case, you should always consider the cost of moving a gun safe into and out of your home. This can cost hundreds of dollars, as it takes multiple people to make this move safely.

A great way to save money if you need to move the safe multiple times is with a good modular gun safe. These safes can be put together where you want them and don’t require more than one or two people to make this happen.

Another great option would be to opt for a good gun cabinet, as they are considerably more lightweight than their safe brethren.

7. Buy a safe that comes with the accessories you want instead of separately.

Another thing that can be costly in your after-purchase life is accessories! Gun safe accessories can get really expensive, so shopping around for gun safes that come with accessories built in can save you a lot of money.

Another good option (along the lines of asking for a discount) is to see if retailers or manufacturers might throw in some accessories to save you so money on that side of things.

Either way, see what you can do to lower your cost by getting good deals on accessories like dehumidifiers, lights, and more.

8. See if other manufacturers sell the same safe for less.

It’s no small secret that many manufacturers sell the exact same safe, just with different small stickers and features! So make sure that you are digging into the market to see if a different brand is selling the safe you like but for a lower price point.

9. Get quotes from manufacturers direct

Gun safes are just like anything else out there. Getting quotes, much like buying a car, may save you money.

It also will allow you to compare apples to apples if you are getting what you need. It also may allow you to negotiate pricing if you decide you don’t need specific features or accessories.

10. Shop different places for the same product.

Always shop around! There are tons of great retailers out there that sell the same products but for an array of pricing depending on how much they want to sell it.

11. Negotiate the sale

Negotiating is always key to getting the best price possible. Making that call, sending that email, and shopping around to get the best deal possible is imperative to negotiate a good price on such an expensive item.

Just like in selling a car, the advertised price is never the final price if you don’t want it to be.

12. Don’t pay just for a brand unless it warrants it.

Gun safe manufacturers are much like any other brand out there; there are really well-known ones that you tend to pay for the brand on.

When shopping for these safes, really compare the safes you are interested in and be sure that you are buying the best value for what you are getting.


I hope that this article helped you think about a few great ways that you can use to save yourself a bit of money when shopping for your gun safe! My top ideas for you would be to negotiate and make the call to see if an actual person can save you a few bucks.
