Have you been looking for the ultimate play thing for your kids? At Home Depot, the Playstar Great Escape Ready To Assemble Gold Play Set was originally priced as high as $3365 but is now on sale for just $929, which is a nearly 73% discount. Shipping is $199.
Oh man, if I had the budget and the yard space for this play set, I would totally get it right now! You won't find it at your local Home Depot store as it's only sold online and though it's on backorder, you can still purchase it right now and the estimated ship time is 10-16 days.
The Playstar Great Escape play set features all of the following activities:
- spiral tube slide
- adventure tunnel
- climbing wall
- monkey bars
- finished lowered deck
- rock wall
- climbing robe
- play handles
- bronco rider
- gym rings
Plus, it even has a clubhouse and a picnic table! So, even though shipping is $199, I say it's worth it because it will be delivered straight to your door and you won't have to worry about lugging all the pieces around. Chances are that if you were to buy it in-stores, you would need to rent truck, so at least it saves that headache!
Even though the initial "regular" price has probably been upped to make it seem like a more shocking deal than it is, there's no debating that it's still an awesome offer from Home Depot. I had a look around and found the Playstar Super Star build it yourself silver play set on sale for $899 (reg. $2100). Yes, it's slightly cheaper and shipping is only $99 but, and here's the real kicker, you need to supply all of your own lumber, whereas for the gold one, all the pieces come pre-cut and ready to assemble.
What's funny is that for the build it yourself one, it even says: "build yourself and save", which could perhaps hold true if we compare the regular prices of the play set but when you think about its current sale price vis-a-vis the built one but it just goes to prove even more just how awesome of a deal the gold one is and this, even with the shipping fee.
It will probably take a couple of days to assemble but at least you won't have to worry about buying all the lumber and cutting it yourself. The boards on this set are all marked for easy identification and assembly.
