Do you qualify for WIC? I will be getting a breast pump from them once the baby comes. It's probably the best benefit I'll get, though the food package is helpful right now, too.

I have it! Love it, actually bought it nip from someone whose company provides them for all new mothers, she only charged me 250 since she got it for free.

You can't always count on this. I tried to do it too, but they said they were short due to a large number of preemie births, which come as first priority.

OP - I would do it. You're charging $250. There's no way your interest is going to surpass the $200 savings. This is one instance where credit would be an okay choice. $50 a month for the next 6 months and it's paid off. You pay $550 for the pump instead of $700 still saving $150. You're going to need a pump. It's a necessity. I worked some 16 hour shifts when I went back to work and I wish I had a better pump. The one side of mine died after a short period of time and I kicked myself for not investing in a better one.
