Save $50: A 10′ x 30″ above-ground pool by Intex (28200EH) is $50 off at Walmart with free delivery as of May 4, dropping the price to $239.99.

Inflatable and above-ground pools were the toilet paper of summer 2020. (OK, maybe a bit less of necessity, but also… kind of necessary.)

Despite summer 2021 being far more open in terms of vacations to the beach or day trips to the lake, no one expects the pool or waterpark scene to be back to normal. Access to a personal backyard pool will still be clutch. Before everyone has the same thought, consider grabbing this 10′ x 30″ Intex model on sale at Walmart — you probably won’t find a well-reviewed above ground pool for less than $250 by June.

Put that saved $50 toward a pump, which is sold separately.

The Intex 28200EH is one of Intex’s most beloved prism frame models, posing an affordable middle ground between a whole steel-walled pool or an inflatable. Easy assembly seems to be the most frequent takeaway in the reviews, and people are impressed by its sturdiness. Intex claims the PVC walls are resistant to impact and sunlight, and the frames are coated for rust resistance.

Throwing a hose in the drain plug is all that’s required on your end after the pool itself is set up. Hitting the max 1,185 gallons of water shouldn’t take more than a few hours. Once that’s done, grab three family members or friends (four people total) and take advantage of a ridiculously hot day.
