Analysis: If you think it's important to offer a wide range of variety, it's definitely worth the extra few hundred dollars to get the Seaga Infinity INF5B (which has slots for a whopping 40 different soft drinks).

If you think 18 selections is enough (and you don't care about the machine having a glass front), the Seaga Prosper PR2018 will save you a little cash. (That said, if you're planning to finance the purchase of your vending machine, you're only looking at a $16 difference per month and may want to spring for the Seaga Infinity INF5B instead.)

Analysis: Just looking at the picture, the SM16SB countertop snack machine may seem too small to justify the price tag; but the little bugger packs a serious punch! It has an impressive 16 slots (8 for chips/pastries on the top two rows + another 8 for candies/bars on the third row) and can store 168 snacks. This countertop machine has been surprisingly popular!

If you're looking for a full-size snack vending machine, it seems like a no-brainer to get the Seaga Infinity INF5S (rather than the slightly smaller INF4S). The 5S model is a few inches wider than the 4S and gives you an extra 8 slots (a total of 40 slots - 20 for snacks/pastries and 20 for candy/bars). That seems well worth the extra $200 (which is only a $6/month difference if you're financing the purchase).

Analysis: If you're pretty price-sensitive, the Seaga SnakMart SM23 is the way to go. It's Seaga's best-selling vending machine of all time for a reason! It's a bit more limited than our other combo vending machines (with only 7 beverage slots to go with 16 snack slots), but that's sufficient for many customers. Another reason it's so popular is that it's very compact, measuring 30" wide by 29" deep (compared to our other combo machines that are 39" x 37"). Note: If you're planning to use our financing option, this machine will actually cost more per month than the next 2 higher models due to it being 24-month financing rather than 36-month financing.

The main differences between the middle two models (the Seaga Quick Break QB218 and the Seaga Infinity INF5C) are 1) aesthetics (which you can see in the pictures) and 2) beverage capacity. Both machines offer 20-21 snack options (so there's very little difference there), but the Infinity INF5C offers twice as many beverage options (16) than the Quick Break (8). So if you don't think 8 beverage options are enough, you'd be better off going with the Infinity INF5C.

The 4th model (the Seaga Infinity INF5CX) is virtually identical to the Infinity INF5C, but it has a fancy 'X' on the end of the model name. That 'X' means it's specially constructed and rated for outdoor use. If you're planning to place your vending machine outdoors, this is the one to get!

Analysis: This cold food & drink vending machine is not like our combo vending machines, which are divided into a) an unrefrigerated section for snacks and candy and b) a separate refrigerated section for beverages. The Seaga Infinity INF5F is entirely refrigerated, allowing you to sell both drinks and pre-packaged meals (along with other cold food items). This machine is ideal for break rooms and kitchen areas that have a microwave for heating up refrigerated food items (though you can obviously sell other cold food items that don't require heating up as well).

Analysis: A countertop vending machine? Why not! The SM16PPE countertop PPE vending machine allows you to sell 16 unique products (4 wide products on the top row, plus another 8 narrow products on the 2nd and 3rd rows). Its total capacity is 168 units (56 wide plus 112 narrow). This countertop Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) vending machine gets the job done for less for most businesses and establishments!

If you think your location justifies a full-size PPE vending machine, we'd recommend getting the Seaga Infinity INF5S-PPE (as opposed to the slightly smaller INF4S-PPE machine). These two vending machines are almost identical, but the 5S model is several inches wider than the similar 4S model, which gives you an extra 8 slots and the ability to offer 40 different selections (instead of just 32). The price difference is only $496 (which translates to a mere $14/month difference if you decide to finance the purchase through Klarna).

Analysis: If you own or operate a bar, night club or another establishment restricted to adults over the age of 21 (or plan to place a vending machine in such a location), the Seaga SM16CIG countertop cigarette vending machine is perfect. It offers 24 unique selections with a total capacity of 336 packs of cigarettes. Like all of our vending machines, you can add a card reader for just $299 so you can accept debit card and credit card payments (as well as cash).

The Seaga CM1250 Bill Changer is a great add-on for any vending machine and can even be mounted right onto it. By default, it accepts $1 bills and $5 bills; but for just $75 more, you can upgrade it to also accept $10 bills and $20 bills. It holds 1,000 quarters, equivalent to $250 in change. If you'll be placing this machine in an arcade or another location that uses tokens, you can also upgrade this machine to dispense tokens (rather than quarters) for just $40.
