You’ll find Walmart everywhere you go and get the lowest price around almost always. This is a great motivation to buy a Walmart trampoline for the family.
The cost of buying a trampoline on Walmart is sometimes not too different from other places but there is always one form of discount Walmart offers that you won’t find elsewhere.
There are lots of good indoor trampolines for sale at Walmart you can get for the kids. And if you’ve never bought one before, you can get your first trampoline on Walmart safely with this guide.
There is palpable risk today buying things online and for a good reason. You cannot afford to buy a bad indoor trampoline for your kids. The risk you would expose them to is better not told.
We could suffer the risk of buying a fake brand name, a substandard indoor trampoline or the risk of being scammed or paying for a refurbished trampoline presented as new.
The actual risk is not the finances we lost but the real risk is that our kids get exposed to fatal injuries and even death. This is much more than any amount we may lose. Think about the emotional trauma and psychological pain you and the child will go through after a trampoline accident.
The risk becomes high when you buy from some third-party vendors (other sellers besides the brand or authorized retailers). This is not to say there are no genuine third party sellers, there are plenty of them out there. And I’ve done business with a number of them online without any hitch or glitch.
These online retailers have done their best in curbing these menaces but there are fraudulent people still hovering around. A big online retailer like Walmart makes huge investments in machine learning and automated systems.
They also get the third party sellers on their platform to adhere to a strict anti-counterfeiting policy that prohibits selling fake or sub-standard products but these scammers still seem to find their way in.
We cannot just leave our online security hanging, we must do our due diligence to ensure our safety and security when buying online. Your best protection is to be vigilant.
You can get almost all trampoline brands and types (like kids or baby trampoline, mini trampoline, rectangular, round, square trampoline), accessories and replacement parts are also available. Common items like trampoline nets, trampoline mats, trampoline chairs, ladders, kids trampoline, etc are available at reasonable prices. You can also get trampoline patch kits, little tikes trampoline, trampoline basketball hoop, etc.
Here are tested and proven tips for buying the right and best trampoline on Walmart.
Know What you Want
Yes, you want to buy a trampoline but there are several types of trampoline, several sizes, several colors, several shapes, several quality, and brands out there on Walmart. If you are not sure what you want you may get confused and settle for something you may regret later.
There are various sizes like 10ft, 12ft, 14ft 15ft trampolines, mini and large trampolines all available on Walmart for sale by various sellers. Decide what size is best for the family.
Trampolines come in several designs and quality and that impacts the prices. What can your budget get for you? My advice is always to buy a trampoline that is safe not one that is cheap. Your kids’ life sure matters a lot.
Research the Seller
Like I have pointed out earlier, not every item is sold by accredited retailers or the brand itself. There are third party vendors on Walmart selling various products including a trampoline.
Let’s say you find a 14ft trampoline on Walmart, find the seller’s name and click on it. You’ll be taken to his profile where you will find the seller’s contact details, feedback from other buyers, and return policy. Reach out to the seller and ask a few questions if you have any.
Be Wary of Those Unbelievable Discounts
When a product sells for less than it established price even the price on the brand website then that’s a red flag.
What are Other Customers Saying
Look out for customer reviews. If the seller has poor reviews then you know you must stay off. For instance, if you see a selling who sells trampoline nets, check the reviews customers made about the product and the seller.
Check the Trampoline Packaging
A brand will always use its official packaging to package whatever they send to customers. Genuine third-party vendors will also have those packagings.
Leverage Walmart In-Store Pick Discount
This gets you an automatic 5-10% off select items. Ensure you check to confirm if the particular trampoline you’re buying is qualified. So let’s say you’re buying a skywalker trampoline worth $1,000 you’ll be saving $100.
Leverage Mobile Express Returns
Walmart’s customer service can be as long as long can be. This can be really frustrating. Sometimes you have an item to return but when you remember the cost and stress of having to wait in the long queue you just decide to let go.
Walmart has solved that problem. The new Mobile Express Return makes things a lot easier. You can now simply get a QR code on the Walmart app, go to the store scan QR code on the credit card machine and follow the process to have the trampoline returned. You do all these without the long queues.
Pay Attention to Price Tags
Price tags ending with ‘0’ or ‘1’ are final sale at Walmart. Those prices ending with ‘7’ are full price. And prices ending with ‘5’ are the first markdown price. If you find a clearance tagged item ending with ‘5’ and you see that there are tons of them left you could decide to wait some more. You could get it at a cheaper price.
Use Paribus to Get Back Your Money if Trampoline Arrives Late
If for any reason your trampoline arrives late after you paid for guaranteed shipping just reach out to Paribus and they’ll take up the case from you and get you a refund.
10% Off for Walmart Staff
Walmart employees get 10% off and those staffers who have worked with them 15yrs get a lifetime 10% off on all their stores. So if you’re staff at Walmart, good for you.
These tips will guide you to get the right trampoline for your family.
