Yes, thanks for the reminder. I saw Sears had it a while back (owned by K-Mart) but didn't jump on it.

I paid $48 for the last one I bought and the pump failed after 3 yrs and I didnt want to pay the cost for a new one so this is a nice price. I will get one though as I really like it but will put some clear coat on this one.

Our local K-Mart just closed last year but there is another one which isn't too far out of the way. Website said they have it in stock to even better yet! Just have to pick up some clear coat.

IM not positive but I read in one place that the sale price is only good for online. So you might want to call the kmart to see what their price is for the fountain. It also appears that sears is selling the fountain at the same price.

Interesting the Kmart price online is $48.99. Free shipping on orders over $49 sad.gif

Ditto with Sears....

Guess I was lucky then to get in on the sale price of $39.95 online only. Picked mine up at the store today. I noticed they had some of these fountains in the store priced at $69.95. On my previous one I had to pay the $48, whatever works for you.

I think they had $10 promo if you signed up first time you hit the website, but I didn't do that. Did you, or was it $10 cheaper when you made your purchase?

I didnt see any promo, hadnt checked the price for a while at the site , just happened to hit it just at the right time. Possibly it was at the end of a promo and I happened into it, not sure all I know is what I paid for it.

There was no promo at the time Steve posted. I didn't notice the tiny, little "on-line only" but did look again 5/2 when Steve mentioned that. It was late & was on my tablet instead of the desktop so I went on early yesterday morning to buy it & then pick up at store & saw the price had changed. They now have 10% off but that stinks. I'm waiting since I don't like playing those games, especially if you also have to protect it. $40 is still a little much so I'll stick to the mister for now. Hopefully, I will have enough time to get my water features going.

Joni -- Just keep a close watch out on the site and it may go on sale again and when it does , dont wait jump on it , that is if you want it.

Anyone that has a lot trees , filtered sunlight might not have to worry about coating the finish on the fountain, the only other option for me might be to have some tall ferns to protect from the sun. I noticed the fading only happened at the point where the water sits and the run off. A combo of sun and water.

Glad to see they have made some changes in the current updated version of this fountain at least compared to the one I had a few years ago. There is an adjust on the bubbler so you can control how much water the pump bring up. Also the plugin is changed it used to be an L shaped thing and you cound not put a weather protector on it for rain, but they have straightened it out on this model and you can. I put half a dozen coats of clear coat on this one and will recoat it each and every season, hope it helps.

Looked today & now its $56+. Keeps going up but will keep checking from time to time. Probably won't see it go down until mid summer now I'll bet. I've seen a green one similar to this with Hummers on it somewhere. I will have to check on that one again.
