I'm kicking myself for not getting the r100 model last week when it was $164 from amazon. Now they're up to $181. I have 5 more months before I'll need this seat. Would you take advantage of $181 or wait and see if the price goes down again?
anyone price-watching radians?
Is $181 below normal price for the r100 where you live? If you still have 5 months, I would wait a little more. Not so much for the $17 but maybe you'll get a seat with a newer expiry that would extend its life if you bought it closer to the time you need it. I'm in a very similar situation, DD will probably outgrow her truefit RF limit soon and we have a baby due in July. If I saw the r120 on sale now, I'd get it but that's because it never goes on sale - that I've seen.
Yes, I saw amazon went back down, thanks!
List price is $250-something, but I see them commonly for about $207. Since radians have such a long life and this is my last baby, I'm not so worried about expiration.
Turns out, our 2nd car may need replaced more quickly than I was hoping, so I'll hold out anyway... If we have 3rd row seating, I don't need a radian. I was hoping to have longer to save up and pay cash; however, I also found used auto loans for .49%! It's from PenFed, a credit union with government affliation, but anyone can join with a small donation. If you use their sponsored cur buying service and get a loan fot 36 months or less, there is a promotional rate of .49%. Or you can shop wherever you want and still get 1.49%. As much as a hate debt, I think this is better than nearly stopping retirement contributions to get more cash.
