Bargain hunter reveals how to get £20 Studio 8ft pool for just £10

06/10/2021

STUDIO is selling an 8ft pool for £20, but one bargain hunter has revealed how to get it for only half that price.

Pools have been flying off retailers' shelves as Brits try to beat the heat by taking a back-yard dip.

Studio's answer to the current heatwave is a Summer Wave pool for £19.99 and it's the perfect size for a family dip or kids' pool party.

The pool is constructed with durable, puncture-resistant materials and it has an inflatable top ring that helps the sides rise up when you fill the pool with water.

One shopper, keen to save some money when splashing out, explained on the Facebook page Extreme Couponing and Bargain Hunters how you could nab the Studio pool for only £10.

You'll have to set up a Studio credit account to do so, then you'll be rewarded with £10 off your first order as well as free delivery.

How to compare prices to get the best deal

JUST because something is on offer, or is part of a sale, it doesn’t mean it’s always a good deal.

There are plenty of comparison websites out there that'll check prices for you – so don't be left paying more than you have to.

Most of them work by comparing the prices across hundreds of retailers.

Here are some that we recommend:

  • Google Shopping is a tool that lets users search for and compare prices for products across the web. Simply type in keywords, or a product number, to bring up search results.
  • Price Spy logs the history of how much something costs from over 3,000 different retailers, including Argos, Amazon, eBay and the supermarkets. Once you select an individual product you can quickly compare which stores have the best price and which have it in stock.
  • Idealo is another website that lets you compare prices between retailers. All shoppers need to do is search for the item they need and the website will rank them from the cheapest to the most expensive one.
  • CamelCamelCamel only works on goods being sold on Amazon. To use it, type in the URL of the product you want to check the price of.

The catch is, you have to spend at least £20, and the 8ft Summer Waves pool is just 1p shy of that, so you'll have to add another cheap thing to your basket to qualify.

Once your order is at least £20 though, you can use the code "012" to redeem the money off.

Setting up a credit account will mean you'll be more tied in than if you just bought the pool outright, and you'll have to keep on top of paying off the account once it's set up depending on which plan you go for.

There's an interest saver or buy now, pay later option and Studio's website has more details on what setting up the credit account will mean for you.

You don't have to set up a credit account with Studio in order to buy the pool, but the £10 offer is only available if you do.

If you decide you're happy just paying the original £19.99 for the pool though, you'll have to factor in an extra £4.99 delivery fee that's charged on a standard debit order.

A downside to ordering the pool from Studio is that you'll have to wait 28 days for your pool to be delivered, but they have plenty in stock to order right now, though it's going fast due to demand.

Studio doesn't have any physical stores either, so you won't be able to pick up the pool in person or use a click and collect option.

The retailer is also offering a 10ft Summer waves pool for £35, it's £15 more expensive than the 8ft one for only 2ft more swimming space, although you could get it for only £25 with the same credit offer.

As always, its best to shop around to see if you can find a better deal elsewhere, as just because something seems like a bargain, it doesn't make it the best on offer.

You can buy an 8ft inflatable pool for only £23 from Argos but stock is running low from the retailer.

It's only £3 more expensive than Studio's is without the £10 off, but you do get the option of heading into your closest Argos to nab the clearance bargain and save on delivery fees that way that would normally cost £6.95.

You can buy another 8ft pool from Smyths for £30 too, that makes the toy store's deal £10 more expensive than Studio's, minus the credit offer, but you have free click and collect and free home delivery options available.

But always make sure you read the fine print on what you're buying, as one dad was left red faced when the £1 pool he bought turned out to be no bigger than a foot spa.

We have a round-up of the cheapest swimming pools available to buy and they're definitely big enough for a splash about – here's where you can pick them up from including shops like Aldi and Argos.

Plus we couldn't leave pets out of the summer fun, as B&M has brought back its £5 cooling mats, and they look just like fun fruit slices.
