RE: Amazon [no CPAP sales]
Amazon use to sell machines through a number of vendors at some of the lowest prices available. I'm nearly certain that this was seen as a violation of the minimum advertised price policies and undercut the DME reseller chain which both Resmed and Philips are highly motivated to protect. You can bet that Amazon was threatened with legal action by at least one of those manufacturers. The sellers on Amazon were often legitimate distributors that were selling at near wholesale prices. One of them was Sistemma which is currently Supplier #33.

Many of these back-door sales have moved to Craigslist. You can find brand new machines for sale, often from the Northwest or Florida, at very low prices. If you know what you are looking for, you can contact those sellers and get a very low price on new equipment. These are relatively safe sales and are usually transacted by PayPal or similar payments. If you want to look on multiple Craigslist locations, use SearchTempest.

RE: Amazon [no CPAP sales]
i am not looking for lowest possible price. i am looking for machine with 0 run hours and no headaches if i have to return it in 30 days. reason i was hoping for amazon, may be it is naive, but in at least 10 years i bought from them regardless if fulfilled by them or by another vendor i never had any headaches returning anything. But i never bought anything close to 500. one more thing i want and i dont even know it is possible, is 24 months warranty from resmed.

RE: Amazon [no CPAP sales]
Even my slightly used machine from Supplier #2 (top of this site shopping cart) has a one year warranty and I paid 49 more for a 2 year warranty. They have new machines also - but I'm not sure what their warranty is on those.

RE: Amazon [no CPAP sales]
If price isn't an issue, then start with the Supplier List. (Link at top of page)  

We list these DME's as a convenience for our members, and can't necessarily vouch for one over the other.  Ask the Vendor questions as far as return policies, and warranty.

See disclaimer.

Warning:  This is a list of links to traditional Durable Medical Equipment suppliers (DMEs) who maintain their own online store. They have not been reviewed or rated by Apnea Board.  Please do your own research and use your own judgement prior to making any purchase.  Apnea Board receives no remuneration from any supplier listed here.  Alternatively, some members have purchased equipment via non-traditional venues such as Amazon, eBay, DOTMed, craigslist, garage sales & want ads etc. with varying levels of risk and success.

RE: Amazon [no CPAP sales]
so looks like if i want  resmed approved  supplier all roads lead to [Commercial Link Removed]  Supplier #1
. i asked them about 30 day return policy. they will allow me to do it once on resmed machine that have 30 day return policy but after that no 30 days return policy no matter what website states.  it sounds like this is my best chance getting machine with 0 run hours. I am assuming it is impossible to reset run hours to 0 even by resmed.
i am also assuming that getting DME with all my requirements that will bill my insurance simply impossible. this is simply not how their business model works.

RE: Amazon [no CPAP sales]
For what it's worth, there's a lot of good online DMEs, but I've been using Supplier #1 since Apnea Board started back in 2004 and have always had super-fast shipping, no issues whatsoever, and they have relatively competitive prices.  Johnny Goodman runs a tight ship.  You won't find a more solid and responsive DME* online, IMHO.



* DME = "Durable Medical Equipment supplier"
