Although Brent and I hadn’t planned on making baby purchases anytime soon, a spring baby lines up too well with holiday deals that we just can’t resist!
Stroller & Car Seat
After much research and debate, we ended up with the Britax B-Safe car seat and B-Agile stroller. The car seat was a simple choice, but the stroller was a much more difficult decision. I admit, I love the Orbit car seat, but other than the rotating car seat I just don’t like the accessories/attachments….or the price.
What we wanted in a stroller:
- Not ugly (gender neutral, particularly black) and, ok, I do like the trendy strollers :)
- If it is $$$, it needs to be able to accommodate a second child (and not be an awkward arrangement)
- Easy to use
- “Fit” us…Brent is a little tall
- Not too pricey–at our house we will need an “off road” jogging stroller also (no pavement people)
We had decided that investing in the B-Ready Stroller would be best. Although it was a bit pricer than the 3 wheeled model, it fit the bill and a second seat could be attached.
However, early one Saturday morning (while Brent was out hunting) I noticed Target was matching the Black Friday deals on Amazon and the B-Agile Travel System was on sale for about $120 off the regular price….seriously. No brainer! I texted Brent to make my case and it was a done deal. Between free shipping, my Target Red Card extra 5%, and Ebates we snagged this set for about $150 off ticketed price!!! (I wanted black on black…but for the deal, I can settle for this. It is still really sharp).
Brent set the stroller up so we could try it out around the house….a test drive to make sure we are 100% sure.
Although getting a great deal is awesome, I might have had a secret motive….I knew our new savings would help in my campaign for a BOB Revolution Flex. We need some sort of jogging stroller with tires equipped for our white rock driveway and road. And who wouldn’t want a BOB?
While I was back in Wymore hunting this weekend, my sister gave me a heads up that BOB strollers were on sale. Same story…Target was matching a Black Friday Deal on Amazon. Between free shipping, Target Red Card 5% and Ebates the savings was $170 off regular price. Of course we were up at 5 am to get to the blind, so I shot a message to Brent (who was still in Wahoo
hunting sleeping). I didn’t think he would go for 2 stroller purchases in one week….let alone at 5 am. Sure enough, he agreed and gave me the green light!
Needless to say….Baby Cernik is doing pretty well in the baby gear department already. That, or this is one spoiled mama!
