Ride On Swing Plasma Cars Only $38 Each or $68 for Two (Price Includes Shipping)

by Cassie on December 11, 2013


UPDATE: we posted this last night and woke up early this morning to see that all have sold out except one color.  We hope you are able to get one or two of them at this amazing price before they are ALL GONE! Also, today is the last day, so to find them, just click on the last day tab at the top to find this sale quickly!

Wowee! This is a super hot deal for a very fun toy! The Ride On Plasma Swing Cars are on sale for $27.99 until Thursday at 11:59 pm.  The shipping is $9.95 for one or $11.95 for two. This means that one car is $38 and two cars are $68 with the shipping! Basically, you can get two cars for the price of one since they normally sell for $70 each!

These cars sell for $70 normally, but Amazon has them on sale for $55 shipped for each one.  This will save you a lot more over the manufacturer, even over Amazon’s special sales pricing!


This is the sales price on Amazon right now! 

This is one the hot holiday toy list for 2013 and this is a HOT price!  Our kids have wanted these for a couple of years.  We might just have to get them this year as this is the lowest we have seen, even with the shipping considered!

Head to the Zulily site HERE where you will find these on sale for $27.99 until 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, December 12th.

To find this sale, scroll to the bottom of the page and look for this image:
