Less if you have any SWYR offers etc.

Looks like a pretty good deal compared to other similar items I could find online.

No price history on amazon/CCC really, just 3rd party

Need to see how big this thing is in "real life". These companies have a history of placing dwarfs and midgets photo shopped to be even smaller in these pictures.

I mean.. the dimensions are in the description.

Banzai Speed Slide Water Park is 14ft 7in L x 9 ft 6in W x 8ft H

The kid in the far left is obviously not to scale but the one climbing the ladder looks about right.

Yeah I read the dimensions. Google images is totally devoid of any actual people using this thing and the people are not to scale in the image. I am still in for one! BTW, NO SYW rewards work on this product since it is a "Hot Buy". I chatted with rep and he confirmed it. However if you beg they might give you a 15 off code for complaining. Wink

did your order get cancelled as well? I placed one early this morning based on ebay resale value (basically didn't think I'd /lose/ money if I decided not to use it... I bought it thinking that it might be good for a birthday party for my nephew and then my son. Placed one via SYWR site first, got cancelled, then placed via sears.com, also got cancelled, and yet at midnight, full 18 hours after I saw the deal...it was still showing live.

I saw this post at 11am yesterday and went to order one, but couldnt add to cart. I contacted Sears and they said there was an "ordering issue and Sears couldnt order it" so he told me to check back next week, and contact them for same price or similar due to the issu,, then sent me an email with hot sale price and a note asking sears employees to honor pricing...

I have been frantically searching for a deal to buy something like this so I was really excited to find this for my son and 2 boys Im watching for the summer. Hoping to find something else today so I dont have to wait much longer. Also the price for this is back to 349.99. Thanks op for posting anyway Smilie

what channel did you use to contact them? I'm kind of irritated about this now and want them honor the deal.

I contacted them through live chat on their website and saved the entire conversation as well (in addition to the email he sent me) He clearly states throughout the chat that they will honor the deal, but when and if it will be available again I dont know... I would definitely contact them, good luck and let me know how it goes if you can...

I just noticed you are the op, I feel so bad that yours was canceled. I will let you know if/when I get a notification that its available, the rep told me I can order through the link he sent, he will place it and adjust pricing somehow (Ill have to call and check). We will see, I may not need it then but I will keep you posted.

My order was canceled as well. Really disappointed. Had shown my grandaughter the picture after ordering it and she was really excited.

Chat first said it was canceled due to price mistake. Then after a lot of back and forth agreed to the $200. Chat ordered it again, then I received cancel email again. Called support and they said it was OOS. Phone rep said she would send an email regarding being able to get it when available again, but I received no email. Many of the emails don't come to me anymore. I get the cancel email, but not the order email, (for other items as well). Changed email as well a couple of weeks ago, (read this might help), but it didn't.

If anyone is still looking for one of these, I bought what I think is a very similar item from Kohls. The Banzai Plummet. It looks to be the same to me as this sears one, other than it has a dumping pale at the end of the slide instead of the extra blow up arches on the Sears one. From Kohl's it came out to be about $142 after using 30% off coupon, discounted gcs at 9% off, Kohl's cash, and shopping portal. So pretty similar to what the Sears deal would have been.

Kohl's though, it appears has unlimited return policy, so that is much better than Sears, particularly because these appear to be able to go bad right away, or after a season. So I figure then, I will just return to Kohl's if that happens, even if it is over a year, and with a receipt I should get a refund, (though they subtract the Kohls Cash you earned from the return amount).

I can't even find this model Sears sells anywhere else or on the Banzai site.
