Patio swings are a great staple of those lazy summer days when it’s too hot to do anything except let yourself waft in the breeze! And patio swings with a canopy are an especially popular purchase thanks to the built-in sun and drizzle protection they offer thanks to that top.
Fortunately, finding a deal on a patio swing with a canopy is easy if you know where to look!
Where to find a deal on a patio swing with canopy
After looking back over the deals we posted on patio swings here at ClarkDeals.com in our archives, we noted several strategies and places to find the best price.
One of the best approaches is to look at off-brands or store brands. For example, Walmart has this Costway patio swing with canopy for $159.99. It gets 4 out of 5 stars from more than 150 reviews. One reviewer noted this model was, “Great for the outdoors. It was easy to assembly. Very sturdy. Comfortable for two people. It is relaxing to sit on.”
Stepping a bit up in price point, Ace Hardware offers its store brand Living Accents 3-person black steel frame swing for $249.99. Reviewers gave it 4.4 out of 5 stars and noted, “The swing is amazing. It is comfortable and the canopy blocks the sun perfectly.” However, the same reviewer also said, “The assembly instructions were very confusing.”
Perhaps that’s because this particular Living Accents model is unique in that it features side tables on both ends of the unit. Meanwhile, compared to a similar swing set at Lowe’s Home Improvement for $298, you’re saving $48.01.
Use the calendar as your friend when buying a patio swing
Like so many purchases, you’ll save money on a patio swing if you’re able to be flexible on when you buy it. We analyzed prices for three popular models on CamelCamelCamel.com to identify the best time to purchase:
- Goldsun 3-person patio swing seat with adjustable canopy (taupe) (B088P58JSQ)
- Mainstays New Belden Park 3-person hammock swing (red) (B07C94RL3S)
- Esright outdoor patio canopy swing chair (B083QGGG66)
The data on these models indicates that February and March are the best times to buy. These three models had low price points of $147.99, $277.50 and $99.98, respectively, during that time frame which coincides with the lead-up to spring.
However, if you’re reading this and want a patio swing right now as we get ready for summer, you might want to consider Lidl.
The only drawback with Lidl is their wares are not available online. So you’ll have to find a store and act quickly if you want this great deal. (Note that stock may be limited, so shopping early is advised.)
