I was at Target the other day and found a Britax Bsafe for 56.99.   I was like WOAH DUDE!

I about RAN to the checkout -even when the cashier rang it up it rang full price but because I saw that golden (orange) sticker.. she gave it to me for 56.99


We are due with a SURPRISE in Feb and all of my infant seats will be expired by then.  I had planned on getting this seat or a chaperone closer to my due date but saw this and felt like it was meant to be.  


After I got it home, I realized it was a customer return.  The seat was in a plastic bag inside, neat and clean -the latch clips still clipped in the storage position.   What do you think?  Outside of writing the original owner a snail mail letter (her address is still on the box), I can't think of what to do.   I really think I am okay.. but what do you all think?

I'd use it. If the latch clips werent even undone, its doubtful that it was ever used much. Did you take the cover off and make sure that nothing underneath it is cracked or not right?

I would inspect it closely, and if the seat is used I would return it. But it may have simply been a gift or wasn't compatible with their stroller or otherwise been returned unused for any number of reasons.


If there's no sign that it's been used I'd keep it.
