If you’re looking to buy a swing set for your children, you’ll find that when you choose to buy is going to make a world of difference in your deal.
While many of us think the warmer months are the best time to buy a swing set, that isn’t necessarily the case. The amount you’ll pay, as well as the time your swing set takes to arrive, will depend on the time of year that you order it.
So, when is the best time to buy a swing set?
Around November or December.
November or December is the best time to buy a swing set for many reasons.
While many parents choose to buy swing sets in the summer, November and December are better times to buy them. Here’s why.
Swing Set Prices
November and December is the time when Black Friday deals and Christmas deals start to pop up—because of this, buying playsets as a holiday gift may end up saving you a ton of money.
Not only do Christmas and Black Friday sales impact the price of swing sets, but the end of season sales start to happen once it gets colder. After summer has passed, dealers who sell swing sets are in a hurry to sell their inventory as their busy season ends.
If you’re ordering a swing set when everyone else is, it can take weeks to get to you. Also in the spring, starting around March, you will start to see many playsets go out of stock online.
The warm weather only sticks around for so long, so do you want to wait weeks for it to arrive? Plus, the assembly can take days.
When you choose to buy the swing set in November or December, it will get to your home much quicker since not as many people are ordering them. Plus, you have plenty of time to assemble it once it gets there.
Who said that children can’t still play outside when it gets cold?
While they may not spend the same amount of time outside as they did when it was warm, outside time is just as valuable in the winter. Without anything to play with, children often don’t feel motivated to get outside and play. Instead, they may find entertainment from the TV, video games, or any other electronics you have around the house.
If you’re lucky enough to live where it is warm in the winter, add a swing set to your yard as the temperature drops, and your children will be so excited that they’ll have no choice but to get outside and play on it.
The time of year that you choose to purchase a swing set is all a matter of personal preference.
If you’re not concerned with saving money or getting your swing set quickly, you can order it whenever you’d like. However, if you’re looking for the best all-around deal, it may be worth ordering your swing set in November or December!
