*Expired* Target Almost Giving Away Britax

by Freebies4Mom on November 16, 2008 7:01 pm

I rarely post shopping deals, but since we all need carseats for our children I thought I’d pass along what surely must be a limited-time clearance offer. *UPDATE: Granite and Cowmouflage are both now out-of-stock.* Target is selling the Britax Marathon in Granite for $42.99 with free shipping (thanks goes to Mommies with Cents for sharing this with me). Yeah, pretty much an unbelievable deal considering this is savings of 85% from the original price of $279.99. I just ordered mine for my youngest son. Baby Cheapskate also has posted this deal: “Holy Moly: Britax Marathon for $42.99!”

If you think this may be a glitch on Target’s website, take a look at the Britax Cowmouflage priced at $59.99. I’m guessing they are clearancing out a limited stock of these specific models. I hope a few of you are able to get in on this great deal!

Just placed my order through target.com without any problems. Used promo code CWOFFERS to get an additional 10% off. I really, really, really hope Target doesn’t cancel our orders. It seems too good to be true!

Ordered from Target at 8:30 pm Said ship date would be mid Dec. For this great a deal it is worth the wait.

I just ordered one. I used the 10% off code – thanks for that! The shipping says Dec 18- January 6th. Which is fine – for free shipping!

Hi Heather! Thanks so much for this…we’re trying to get pregnant and decided to buy this in anticipation of our success!

P.S. The promo code worked just fine too! We used CWOFFERS, got free shipping (delivery expected b/w Dec. 18,2008-Jan.6,2009) and total w/tax came to 42.03. Completely awesome deal!

Wow…I ordered this as soon as I saw your post. We have a 3 yr old but are going to be trying for another one. Even if it doesnt happen this car seat would make a great gift! I cant believe they are already gone! Thanks!

I got mine before it ran out! Yay! I’m praying they don’t cancel the order. This is really a blessing for us as money is tight and we have a 2 month old who will be needing a bigger seat in several months. Thank you!

We ordered ours in Granite, got the free shipping, and spent just under $47 with the tax applied. We’ve been looking at Britax seats for some time, but just couldn’t afford them. This is such a wonderful deal! Thanks!

How did I miss out on this??? I have been searching for a new carseat for my daughter! Ugh….I’m so, so bummed!!!! Anyone want to sell theirs for a profit?

Melanie November 17, 2008 at 8:33 am

I ordered one as soon as I saw your post! Can’t thank you enough! I was going to order a new cover for my son’s Britax Roundabout but it was only $10 less than a new seat with this deal! Plus, he will be 4 in six months or so but I would rather keep him in a harness for longer and with this seat I can until 65 pounds! Britax are the best car seats in the universe and now I can relax until a booster seat deal comes along!!!

I am so mad, my order went through, and went to check it today and it was canceled, so be sure to check your orders to make sure you will get it ๐Ÿ™

My order is missing from target.com as well. I sent an email to target to ask about it.They say in their small print, that prices are effective when the item ships. I bet they got thousands of orders last night!

Naturally Frugal Mama November 17, 2008 at 5:44 pm

Yes, many of my friends ordered this, and all their orders disappeared. It doesn’t seem right!

I ordered this, and the next day I got an e-mail from Target stating that it was a misprice error, and my order had been canceled. Good luck to the rest of ya!

I just got my canceled email as well…what a bummer…

My order was cancelled as well for the granite. Was anyone’s order for the Cow Print cancelled?

Reply

Anonymous November 17, 2008 at 8:56 pm

Mine was canceled also. Target claims there was a misprint in the price. Such a bummer!

Melanie November 18, 2008 at 8:15 am

Yep. Cancelled. That sucks.

roughneckwife77 November 18, 2008 at 9:51 am

Cancelled as well!

A friend of mine that ordered said that she called about the issue and they compensated her with a $20 gift card credit to keep her business…I called and they said that shouldn’t have been done for her and wouldn’t do it for me. Worth a try though! At least they will know how we all feel about the situation!

Jeff & Nicole November 20, 2008 at 10:41 am

Yup, canceled! So frustrating…I love target but I am NOT a fan of their customer service.

Tonie November 20, 2008 at 4:31 pm

We also ordered a carseat and received an email saying that it was priced wrong and that it happens periodically. Since it was a mistake they canceld our order; but we can order it at full price. Bummer, very disappointing. I don’t know about Target anymore.
