Ready to buy a trampoline? If your kids are bouncing off the walls and you’d rather have them bounce on a springy platform, you’re not alone.

Hundreds of thousands of trampolines are sold in the U.S. every year, and before you walk into your favorite big box store to get one, we’re gonna help you save some serious cash.

How much does a trampoline cost? What’s the best trampoline for you? Where can you find trampolines for sale year-round? We’ve got you covered.

Let’s jump into it. (Trampoline pun.)

What size trampoline do I need?

Always, always, ALWAYS measure the area where you want to place your trampoline before you buy. Trampolines range from 8 to 15 feet in diameter and require a flat surface to be placed on. Make sure you have the right space for your new trampoline.

 

Who is jumping on the trampoline?

Each trampoline that is on this list can have around 2 to 3 people on at a time, but each trampoline will list a total weight threshold for you. For example, if there is a weight limit of 200 lbs, it’s not 200 lbs per jumper; it’s 200 lbs for the total weight of simultaneous jumpers.

If you end up breaking a spring or the mat, retailers do sell separate parts, but each piece is pretty expensive. Be sure to check out the safety features of the trampoline. Don’t risk it.

 

The best time to buy trampolines is early fall.

We’re constantly watching trampoline deals here at KCL (so you’ll want to bookmark the page and get our app so you don’t miss a single one), and the best deals we find consistently happen in early fall.

In 2021, Walmart had their best prices of the year on 14-foot trampolines the third week of October, during Early Black Friday sales. Trampolines from Airzone and Bounce Pro cost just $184 — $65 less than the cheapest 14-footer we could find the rest of the year.

The best deal we found anywhere this year was at Target in early October; the 15-foot Little Tikes Mega Trampoline for $165.49 — 50% off the regular price.

 

Walmart almost always has the best deals on trampolines, so look there first.

Walmart has incredible sales on trampolines in the fall, but even when there isn’t a sale, they consistently have the best prices on trampolines, and the best price-per-foot of trampoline diameter.

This isn’t just about total price, though; it’s also about unit cost, quality, usability, and more. We found a 14-ft ALEKO trampoline at Walmart for just $245.17 — more than $100 cheaper than their closest competitor. Among all trampoline sizes and brands, this one has the best price per foot of diameter at $17.79. (The second-best we could find was $18.69/ft for a 10-ft trampoline.)

(It also has a weight limit of 200 lbs — same as all 12 to 15-ft trampolines.)

 

Want a tiny trampoline for the kids? Don’t spend more than $45.

The standard price for one of these trampolines is around $70, but we’ve seen them on sale for $39.18 at Target, $39.81 at Sam’s Club, and $44.97 at Walmart.
