Electric skateboards are becoming a popular way to get around town, but there’s still one very important thing to think about…
What is the price?
You can get an electric skateboard for as little as $150 or as much as the upper $2,000s or even more for a customized model.
And somewhere in that range is the famous and powerful Boosted brand.
Let’s look at each Boosted model and how much it costs to see if we can get it for less…
Every few years, Boosted has updated its first electric skateboard, which was actually a longboard. The model doesn’t change, but the way it works gets better.
The current version of the Plus can go as fast as 22 mph and has an extended range of 14 miles. It costs $1,399 all together. Quite expensive…
But if you are willing to take the risk, you can pay for it over a few months. Here are the choices that can be made.
- The total price is $1,440.81 if you pay $240.14 a month for 6 months.
- The total cost is $1,477.27 if you pay $123.11 a month for 12 months.
- The total price is $1,512.25 if you pay $84.12 a month for 18 months.
The financing options are great because over a long period of time, you only end up paying a few extra dollars. If you don’t have $1,399 in your bank account, the 12-month payment plan is a great choice.
The Stealth is the most powerful Boosted board. It can go up to 24 mph and has a 14-mile range.
Not bad, but it’s the most expensive model of the Boosted at a whopping $1,599.
Here are the ways to pay for it:
- The total price is $1,688.47 if you pay $140.70 a month for 12 months.
- The total cost is $1,730.73 if you pay $96.15 a month for 18 months.
- The total cost is $1,773.66 if you pay $73.90 a month for 24 months.
Since the Stealth costs even more than the plus, it looks like there are even better ways to pay for it.
Boosted Mini S
The Mini S is a smaller and more compact version of the Boosted skateboard.
Pressure was put on Boosted to come up with a cheaper option, so they made the Mini S. Demand was so high that Boosted made a mistake… So, the Mini S was made.
It’s the cheapest thing they sell right now.
The whole length is 29.5 inches, while the Boosted Plus and Stealth are 38 inches long.
The price of the Mini S is $749.
Here are the ways to pay for it:
- The total price is $761.80 if you pay $253.93 a month for 3 months.
- The total price is $771.40 if you pay $128.56 a month for 6 months.
- The total price is $790.90 if you pay $65.19 a month for 12 months.
All of these ways to get money are great ways to pay off the board.
The board costs $749, and you only pay an extra $12.80 for three months, $22.40 for six months, or $41.90 for twelve months if you want to pay for it over time. Not even close!
You shouldn’t have any trouble paying off this board.
Mini X got a boost
The Boosted Mini X is the same as the Mini S in every way.
Same board and frame, but now it works better.
The Mini X has a top speed of 20 mph and a range of 14 miles, which puts it on the same level as the Boosted Plus.
The total cost is $999.
Does it cost enough? Maybe. It depends on how far you have to go. Take the Mini X if you want more range. If you only have to go a short distance, take the Mini S and save $250.
Options for getting money are:
- The total price is $1028.85 if you pay $171.48 a month for 6 months.
- The total price is $1054.87 if you pay $87.91 a month for 9 months.
- The total price is $1080.28 if you pay $60.07 a month for 12 months.
Like the Mini S, these financing options are very reasonable, so if you can’t come up with $999 all at once, you should definitely think about them.
Look for deals on EBay…
I used to enjoy selling things on eBay.
Before Amazon blew it out of the water, it was the Amazon.
Now, eBay’s sales are going down. The good news is that you can find products for a lot less money than you could on other sites or stores.
For example, I just looked for “Boosted Mini S” on eBay and chose the “new” filter to find only brand-new boards that have never been used.
I looked at the sold listings and was amazed by what I saw. One brand-new Boosted Mini S sold as a “buy it now” item for a total of $447.38, including shipping… Incredible in every way. You’d save more than $300 if you bought the Mini S from Boosted’s website ($749).
Next, I did the same kind of research for the $999 Boosted Mini X. I looked through the sold listings and found boards that had sold for $775 and had free shipping. I even found a bidding process that was like an auction. The item sold for $721.11 plus $13.78 for shipping. That’s a savings of $264.22!
And finally, the Boosted Stealth, which sells for $1,599, was the best deal I could find. I found two listings that were set up like auctions. One of them sold for $1,026 and the other for $1,243. The total amount of money saved is $573 and $356.
Don’t worry about waiting and looking around eBay.
Even if you only save $30 to $80, that’s a big deal.
A word of warning: eBay is a great place to look for deals, but you need to know one thing. Demand and supply. If the board you want is “sold out” on Boosted’s website and at other stores, there’s a good chance that eBay sellers will take advantage of this and raise the prices way up. You’ll have to wait until Boosted gets the model back in stock (s).
Is there a discount code or a coupon?
One more tip for finding discounts and coupon codes online.
I found the discount code “BANGBANG” on Knoji.com, which gave me $75 off any Boosted board.
Here’s where to go!
Now, if you read this too late, the discount code might no longer work, so you’ll have to do your own research to find other deals.
Just search for “boosted board discount codes,” and you’ll find a wide range of websites and deals. You’ll have to do your own research because many of the codes won’t work.
Go to Boosted’s website, add a board to your cart, check out, enter the coupon code, and click “apply.”
If the price went down, you’re good to go. If you get a message that says “Enter a valid discount code or gift card,” look for a new code and try again.
As we’ve already said, different codes will pop up now and then, so keep an eye out, especially around the holidays.
