Home Depot plastic resin sheds back in stock -- as low as $499 prices VERY YMMV

+12 Deal Score

I've been scouring the internet for a new resin shed to house my bikes and mower. I thought I had missed out on the deal posted here for rubbermaid big max 7x7 [homedepot.com]. However, it's back in stock now. (Edit: just refreshed and it's ymmv local pickup only once again.)

Also in stock is Suncast Vista 7x7 shed [homedepot.com], which is similar to the Craftsman 7x7 [lowes.com] at Lowes. (Suncast makes the Craftsman sheds).

The weird thing is that the prices of the sheds keep changing, even in the same ZIP code. Also changing is store pickup availability I just submitted an order for the suncast at $499 with $55 shipping. When I linked to post this deal, price had gone up to $679. Likewise, Big Max a few minutes ago was $549 and now is $579.

I have no idea if the system is glitching out, if I simply landed a unicorn, or what. I just wanted to let SDers know that there might be a shot to land a great deal on a shed if you're in the market and patient.

Also 5% back with paypal via Discover card.

Hope this helps!

EDIT: try using different browsers and/or incognito mode. thanks iLikeMild

edit 2: I'm having success getting 499 on Android chrome

Click the BigMax 7x7 shed and scroll down to suggestions where it shows different sheds. The Suncast shows $499.

Try a different browser if it doesn't work. Maybe even incognito.

Is the extra 5" height on the BigMax worth the $80 premium if you can get the suncast for $499?

I tried doing that and I got prices of 629 and 679. I was going to mention that in the op but I figured it was long winded enough already. laugh out loud

I switched browsers multiple times to get it to work. Safari, chrome, Firefox focus.

It depends on your needs for sure. The extra few inches may make the difference for some people's ladders or kayak but most users stashing bikes, mowers, rakes probably won't notice the difference.

- be sure these are installed on VERY flat (and ideally level) bases. Don't try "just dirt" or "good enough" as you will soon find things not lining up in assembly, or excessive warping. I built ours on a plinth I made from treated 2x6 and plywood (painted with enamel for good measure) which made leveling it super easy. In essence it's very similar to the first steps of a regular shed
- don't plan on really hanging much if anything. No plastic shed is really designed for this and they lack structural rigidity for the purpose. Some include hangers and even shelves (mine did), but seriously they are super light weight. Too much weight will either break them or bow the walls.

Put a washer and dryer in one of these 20yrs ago. Cut an opening for the vent/ pipes extending from a guest house.
Engineer from the company returned my call and reassured no fire hazrd. Saved a ton of time/money constructing/painting/upkeep due to 300+ days sunshine.

+1 to assembly pain if base is not level. Some sheds handle it better but even millimeters can end up difference between you getting built, filled, and beered before sunset...and you kicking a wall in in frustration and having a whole new problem. Uhm...Or so I've heard...

I've been cruising sheds in this size for a few months now. $499 -- $579 are the cheapest around. Next cheapest is $650 (craftsman at lowes). Once you get past that, you're paying $800+.

The Suncast shed at $499 is regularly $679. 26.5% off is pretty solid on a big ticket item. plus 5% paypal cashback with discover.
