Inflatable McGruff BalloonThe McGruff inflatable is free, but you must pay the cost of shipping, which is $600 roundtrip (U.S. destinations only). A $200 refundable deposit and a $175 nonrefundable administrative fee are also required to reserve the inflatable. Please allow six business days for ground shipping.
