Dang, so sorry to the mamas who aren't able to get through. I am so glad I got my order in! I am definitely very scared. I am going to be stalking my email every few minutes until delivery in January at this rate.

Yowza. I just tried to send a link to a friend, and I can't even get back to the page. I am thinking nearly every MDC mama that is online right now is crashing the Target server.

I also don't need one, but couldn't resist. I've had "car seat envy" for so many years! I can't believe I will, hopefully, soon be able to put my toddler in an Marathon!!!!!

Extra tip: if you're a AAA member, you get an extra 10% off! Start at aaa.com/target, I believe.

btw, for those who said their order didn't go through, mine just did, including w. the 10% off and free shipping. Wow. I can't believe this!!!!!

Me too... I'm so hoping mine goes though. We *need* this seat (we had a car accident last week, so DD's seat is now unsafe to use)

Nope... can't do it... Well, I guess if anyone wants to take pity on a new mom with a colicky baby and a husband that's been out of work for 5 months and feels the need to re-sell one... feel free to contact me!

Dang, if you do a search for Britax Marathon on the Target website now, the cheap seats are not even listed. I am betting they have sold out. Hopefully they didn't oversell.

I am so grateful that DS would not go to sleep tonight and I was toodling around on MDC way past my bedtime!

Are these still available??? I NEED a carseat for dd2 and I can't find them now on the target website. We are so broke, I wasn't even considering a britax for her, but at $42 it's less than any other seat! Please, if someone can link the page to me I would LOVE you!

They're gone.

We really needed them. Both of our littles need new carseats. I'm so upset.

I'm trying to call target customer service, and it's saying they are experiencing heavy call volume at this time... wait time is "several minutes long". Anyone else calling?

No. Calling is a no no in the deal finding world. I'm serious.

Though MANY others are calling according to other sites. Sigh.

WOW! I bought it *just* in time. Like, right before 9:30pm. I was talking to my mom on the phone about it (she is going to pay me back for it b/c she wanted to buy us a car seat). I told her "I don't know how much longer this will be on sale," and then bought it! I also found a coupon code for 10% off: CWOFFERS . :

Anyway, slightly disappointed that it's not good for newborns, but now I can go with a Graco Snugride for the first few months since they only hold up to 25lbs. I couldn't buy a Britax Companion for the price of a Snugride + Marathon.

If anyone does get through, please post and let us know if this is a legit deal. I so desperately need this seat!!!

I am almost half tempted to call and wait on hold to talk to a CS agent just to double/triple check that I can get my seat.

Good point! I will definitely not call. Dang, I am sweating bullets over here.

Anyone else hit the "new posts" button and giggle at the sheer volume of new threads that are about this seat?

I found this deal over on another board, and figured I'd pop over here and see if people were talking about it here.

I did get an order placed about 10 minutes before the error message went up and about 15 minutes before the items were pulled. I also got the ship date of 12-15.

We'll see what happens. It would be a blessing if it were true.

It's been said on another board by at least two people that they called and it was a price mistake.

Someone I know from another board called & spoke to a lady on customer service. She did say the prices were correct, though she wasn't 100% sure, her info said those 2 patterns were being cleared out for a newer model & said the sells would be honored. So not 100% I guess, but according to at least 1 phone call, we'll be getting seats.

What board was it if you don't mind sharing? Or can you quote what they said at least?

I got one just in time too -- it was in the shopping cart in time I guess...

I really hope this is going to happen.

Some of you who got lots might consider the Holiday Helper thread!!

Can you imagine what a wonderful Xmas gift that would make for one of our needy moms?

I would LOVE to hear if anyone actually talked to Target on the phone. Wow. If this actually happens at this price I will be SOOOO excited!!

Wow. I sure hope so!

Side note: I feel sorry for their Customer Service Reps! I work at a call center, and I can't begin to tell you how CRAZY it gets when there is some sort of outage/issue that 5 million people call in about. I mean, yeah, consumers have a right to know, but trust me, as much of a PITA as it is to wait to talk to a Rep, it's a PITA to have to explain something to the 100th person that day.

I know I'm going to upset more people but don't count your chickens yet.. not until the egg (err, car seat) has SHIPPED.

People have called Target and other retailers about similar deals in the past, been told by the employee that yes, it's a legit deal and then bam, they receive THE email "Sorry it was a price mistake" or "Sorry, we're out of stock" (LIE!), etc. etc.

I'm crossing my fingers for you all.
