I just can't seem to pass up a good bargain when I find one, and dang...I just seem to happen upon them all the time!
Before finding the Graco 65, I had been researching the Britax seats as well as others, but they were so expensive. The Britax seats came so highly recommended from other moms, but I couldn't justify spending $300 on a seat when there were others that were a lot less and probably just a good.
I had read online that someone found the Britax Marathon seat for $139.99 last week at Target, but I figured they were probably all sold out. So you can imagine how excited I was to find a Britax box hiding on shelf at Target. When I looked at the clearance sticker is said $199.99 (originally $289.99). I flung the HUGE box up on the cart and headed for one of those price checkers, praying the whole time that it had just been missed when they reticketed clearance items. I finally was able to scan it and TADA...it said $139.99!! SCORE!!! I headed straight to the checkout with my awesome find!
