marathons for $42 at target.com - Page 3

post #41 of 377
The strap colors are different as well. Most likely these are 1-2 years old. Still, a great deal if it comes through.

I want one. I don't need one. How dumb is that?!?!

I'm giddy with excitement! Just got 2. Thank you so much for posting this. I was planning to get a Nautilus for DD who is about to grow out of her Roundabout in DH's car and also get a Nautilus to bring home to Ireland for my Mum to use for her grandkids - this is soooo much better! We use a Marathon already in my car and I love it but I didn't want to spend the $$$ on another one. My order said est ship date of Dec15-29. I'm leaving for Ireland on the 27th so we'll see. Hope this is a real deal......

My ship date is tomorrow and deliver date says Nov 21-25. I sure hope this pans out.

My guess is that they're the slightly older seats that only rear face til 33 lbs, not the newer ones that rear face to 35 lbs.

As of February 2008 all Britax convertbiles RF to 35lbs, prior to that it was 33lbs.

Even if they are old I snatched one up because I almost bought a Scenera since I need another backup in a few months. I'm so glad I didn't!

DH has no idea why I'm so giddy.

I'm not saying that they don't come with latch... I just find it odd that they don't picture the latch connectors.

Anyways, SWEET DEAL!!!!

I already placed an order but it does seem strange that the pics do not have the latch connectors and all the other regular priced marathons do. Maybe this is the catch?? Can you get Britax to send them to you if they don't ship with them?

if it's not what you want you can return it to all target stores- that's what it says.

I'm hoping this works too.. although I don't think it WOULDN'T work.. Target can't just put up a sale like this and then un-do it.

I literally tripped and twisted my ankle when I was RUNNING for my wallet. I am so crazy low income and am using a borrowed Comfort Sport and Scenera with DS and my daycare boy. Both are such crappy seats. It is nearly impossible to gets the straps tight and not twisted and to have the seats tight all at the same time. Spending nearly $100 on new seats for both boys will put a serious crunch in my budget, but I would NEVER be able to afford it otherwise. I was just praying that I could come up with enough for ONE new seat for DS and my daycare boy was going to stay in the Scenera. I am absolutely over the moon at seeing this deal. Just praying it actually goes through and the seats are delivered safe and sound.

They can and have. Not always but sometimes, yes. It's in the TOS when you purchase something on their site (you automatically agree to their TOS when you hit the "submit purchase" button). Their TOS, like many other retailers, states they can cancel orders for any reason at anytime. :/

I hope they don't, but I am pretty sure they can if they are going to literally lose thousands and thousands of dollars because of a typo. Heck, if they were going to put it on sale for $150, people would have still been scrambling to buy them. Less than $50 definitely seems like a typo.

I am so praying that it isn't though..... :

Wow! Thanks ladies- I really hope this works out. Mine also said that it won't ship until late december/early january, so we'll see....
post #57 of 377
I literally feel sick to my stomach that this may not be true. I so desperately need a new seat! There is no way I could afford a Marathon otherwise. When do you think they would notice the typo and send out an email saying the orders are cancelled if that were to happen? Would then even send out an email, or would it just not arrive?
post #58 of 377
Dead!

Kim - From previous experience, the cancellation emails could start coming at anytime. You usually do get an email.

Just got this when I tried to take a closer look:
We're sorry!

Uh oh

And when I went to order --
