Evenflo EuroTrek Travel System Now Only $100 & Free Shipping @ Walmart.ca (EXPIRED)

Evenflo EuroTrek Travel System Now Only $100 & Free Shipping @ Walmart.ca (EXPIRED)

A combo pack with kids gear? Yes, please! The Evenflo EuroTrek Travel System is now only $100 @ Walmart.ca. Walmart offers free shipping with no minimum every day, on every item. A travel system is a big item to ship and the free shipping really seals the deal.

There is an excitement in the air when you are a new parent as you prepare for the big arrival. Check one more thing off your list to buy with the Evenflo EuroTrek Travel System. This combo pack includes a rear facing Evenflo bucket car seat designed to hold a baby up to 35 pounds. Down in the Q&A, a Walmart representative says the minimum weight limit is 5 pounds. This car seat includes a 5 point harness system to keep baby snug and secure.

The stroller includes a weight limit up to 40 pounds, which would still fit my 3 year old. Another great feature is a one handed folding system. A pivoting snack tray also allows kids to get in an out easily or to dump those crumbs on the go. There is also a parent consul by the handle to stash a drink or other small items. That parent consul is more important than it seems. I ended up buying a soft consul to Velcro onto my stroller since my Britax did not have that feature and paid about $30 bucks for it. The colour looks to be a yellow or green colour but most consumers are reporting it to be green in colour.

I did a little price checking on this item and it seems this particular pack is not sold often anymore. Amazon has it for $337 and it only qualifies for free shipping if your sign up for their Amazon Family discount program. Sears has a comparable Evenflo Flexlite travel system in green but get ready to shell out $229.49 for that make and model.

Reviews are a mixed bag on this travel system. People either praise it as being the next best thing to sliced bread or are thoroughly unimpressed. One person complains the stroller is too long and bulky while another claims it goes in and out of their Honda Civic with ease. Most reviewers agree they like the sun shades and that the system folds easily.

Now do not be fooled, folks. Whether you enjoy being a parent or not is not the fault of the stroller. Your life changes usually changes a bit after you have children. Someone should have clued in this UK Dad. He seems a bit bitter now that he is selling his own “green albatross” double stroller on Ebay as mentioned by The Yummy Mummy Club. He waxes on and on about how for “just £9.99 you too can screw up your life.” His humour is a genius stunt, as last I checked bids were over £156,706.00 on ebay. There are still 4 days to bid if you want to own his stroller.

Buy this stroller from Walmart instead. This travel system will come with better karma and the price tag is much better.

$70 Off Evenflo Triumph LX Convertible Car Seat @ Toys R Us Canada – Now $100

Posted by on January 17, 2015 at 5:00 PM

$70 Off Evenflo Triumph LX Convertible Car Seat @ Toys R Us Canada   Now $100

Have you been shopping around for a car seat? The Evenflo Triumph LX convertible car seat in on sale for just $99.97 at Toys R Us. It was originally priced at $169.99, which puts it at a $70 discount (over 40% off).

According to the description, it’s recommended to be used as rear-facing for up to 40lbs and forward facing for toddlers between 22 and 65lbs. This isn’t a recommendation I would follow too closely, except for using this car seat only until a maximum weight of 65lbs because my little one is 8 months, weighs 20lbs and yet is nowhere ready to be forward-facing as Transport Canada recommends keeping children rear facing as long as possible.

Here’s a review I found for it:

I ordered this two weeks ago from toys r us. I did so much research and went and looked at many car seats but honestly wasn’t impressed with any of the more expensive seats. I found them very awkward looking and not enough padding and cushion. When I saw the triumph on sale at toys r us I ordered one immediately. I love it, my husband loves it and most importantly my daughter loves it.

In short, it features:

  • Infinite harness slide adjustment (makes it easy to get child in/out)
  • 5-point hardness system
  • TensionRight knob at the side
  • ReclineRight: seat is adjustable to either an up or reclined position
  • Adjustable headrest
  • Pads and pillow are both removable and washable

As for a price comparison, the Evenflo Triumph LX is nearly $145 everywhere else. Sears is selling it for $144.49, while at Costco, it’s $149.99. Both websites also boast positive reviews for it, just like Toys R Us’ site. Here’s a review that someone posted on Costco’s site:

Bought this car seat for my grandson and we have been very happy with it. The seat is comfortable and plush great for long travel trips. It’s sturdy and easy to install. It fits in my small car with room for the front passenger to sit comfortably .

Since a $10 shipping discount is applied at checkout, you will only pay $8.62 to have it shipped straight to your home. It’s unavailable for in-store pickup.

I also found the Baby Trend EX Flex lock infant car seat on sale for $99.97, up from $149.99. It’s not a convertible car seat like the Evenflo but could be a great car seat to start out with as it’s good up to 22lbs.

Amazon Canada: $45 Off Diono Olympia Car Seat & Free Shipping – Now Just $255

Posted by on January 11, 2015 at 12:15 PM

Amazon Canada: $45 Off Diono Olympia Car Seat & Free Shipping   Now Just $255

I was browsing around Amazon’s Deals Store and stumbled on a great deal on the Diono Olympia cat seat in shadow. Originally priced at $299.99, you can now get it for just $254.99, along with absolutely free shipping.

The Diono Olympia car seat is a convertible booster seat that can be used for up to 49.90kg (110lbs). It has a 5-point harness and has been NCAP crash tested.

Reading about the specs is great and all but it also has the reviews to prove its worth. There are 35 reviews with a general consensus of 4.5/5 stars with positive comments like this one:

Overall I love this seat. It is narrow, easy to get my child into and comfortable for her. It is quite heavy, but not impossible to carry. I almost bought the next model up, but after reading some reviews where kids hate their head supports in it, I decided on this. So happy I did. This is definitely the seat to buy once your child outgrows the infant carriers.

Don’t like the Diono Olympia in black? No worries, there are plenty more Diono car seats to save on:

  • Diono Olympia seat graphite in grey/black: was $299.99/ now $254.99
  • Diono Pacifica seat sunburst in orange/grey: was $339.99/ now $288.99
  • Diono Pacifica sea graphite in grey/black: was $339.99/ now $288.99
  • Diono Pacifica seat shadow in black: was $339.99/ now $288.99
  • Diono Rainier seat shadow in black: was $379.99/ now $322.99
  • Diono Rainier seat glacier in blue/grey: was $379.99/ now $322.99
  • Diono Rainier seat graphite in grey/black: was $379.99/ now $322.99
  • Diono Rainier seat orchid in purple/black: was $379.99/ now $322.99
  • Diono Rainier seat houndstooth in black: was $379.99/ now $322.99

They all come with free shipping as well.

Just to give you an idea, I had a look around at Toys R Us’ site for Diono car seats and the cheapest one I found is the Diono RadianRXT on sale for $305.97 (reg. $359.99). It’s a different model from the ones being sold at Amazon right now but in comparing the specifications, they’re nearly identical with the main difference being that the RadianRXT holds less weight, has an included cup holder and can be folded flat. You’re basically paying more for the bells and the whistles but the safety of the seat remains unchanged.

The only Diono Pacifica car seat I found at Toys R Us is the one in shadow black and it’s currently regularly-priced at $339.99, whereas at Amazon, you can get it for just $288.99. Another point to mention about shopping for a car seat at Toys R Us is that unless you pick it up in-stores, you would need to pay shipping fees.

Future Shop Canada: Evenflo Big Kid DLX Jonah Booster Car Seat | Was $100 Now $50 (EXPIRED)

Hey there, my fellow deal hunters! Future Shop’s daily deal is for an Evenflo Big Kid DLX Jonah Booster Car Seat, which normally costs $99.99, but today you can get it for $49.99! You’ll also qualify for free shipping, which is always a nice bonus! Having a safe car seat for your child is crucial, and especially nowadays when there have been so many recalls for older car seats, it’s very important to purchase a newer car seat from a respected and reputable company, like Future Shop.

This Evenflo Big Kid DLX Jonah Booster Car Seat has plenty of great features. You can easily adjust this car seat to 6 different heights,   It even has integrated activity lights (with two light settings; 2 AA batteries required), which can allow your child colour, read, and relax when it’s getting dark outside. This great booster car seat also has built-in speakers, and 2 elastic cup holders.

The Evenflo Big Kid DLX Jonah Booster Car Seat supports forward orientation only in your backseat, and it’s specifically for children that are 48 to 96 months, with a maximum height of 145 cm and weight of 49.8 kg.

This looks like one cool booster seat! The fact that it has integrated speakers can make it convenient for your child to listen to their own music, and I really like the integrated activity lights feature. It can certainly help keep them occupied, relaxed, and satisfied during those long trips!

If you were to purchase this Evenflo Big Kid DLX Jonah Booster Car Seat from Best Buy, it would cost you $99.99. It’s also $95 at WalMart. I’ve included a snippet of a review from a satisfied WalMart customer below:

I received this car seat as gift for my son and he loves it. When we travel on the road, the built in lights are great as my son loves to read. Also, the speakers are great, too.

Future Shop Canada: Safety 1st Comfy Carry Elite Infant Car Seat | Was $100 Now $40

Posted by on October 30, 2014 at 10:39 AM

Future Shop Canada: Safety 1st Comfy Carry Elite Infant Car Seat | Was $100 Now $40

Future Shop has done it again – they have an intriguing deal of the day for a product that you wouldn’t even think they’d carry! It is a web-only deal, so that may be one of the reasons why most people wouldn’t expect them to carry infant car seats, like this Safety 1st Comfy Carry Elite Infant Car Seat. It normally sells for $99.99, but today you can purchase this infant car seat for $39.99! You’ll also qualify for free shipping, which is always a nice bonus!

This Safety 1st Comfy Carry Elite Infant Car Seat certainly looks like one cozy car seat! It has a 5-point harness, side-impact protection, a lightweight carrier, and even an aajustable canopy that can help protect your child from the sun. You can learn more about this infant car seat by clicking on the link above.

Since it’s so important to have newer infant car seats, especially since they do so many tests to ensure that they’re perfectly safe, this is a notable deal. Most people will tell you about the dangers of older infant car seats that were manufactured before a specific date, so make sure that you avoid purchasing one that’s used or that was given to you.

If you were to purchase this Safety 1st Comfy Carry Elite Infant Car Seat from Best Buy today, it would cost you $99.99. Listed below is a brief review of this infant car seat from a satisfied Amazon customer:

We purchased this car seat because it’s lightweight and reasonably priced, with good safety ratings. It’s easy to install and easy to use. While most friends of mine have fancier car seats, they constantly complain about how hard their seats are to carry (with babies under a couple of months old), and admire the size and weight of this one. I don’t see any reason to purchase an infant car seat with a higher weight capacity if you can’t carry it.

Limited quantities are available, so check out this deal when you have a chance. I hope you all enjoy the rest of your Thursday!

If you were to purchase this Evenflo Triumph LX Convertible Car Seat at Sears, it would cost you $144.49, and it retails for $169.99 at Toys R Us. I found a review from a satisfied Sears customer that I think you should all read – I’ve included it below:

I bought this car seat about a year ago. I was recently in a terrible accident with my son. We were hit from the side by a tractor trailer. He was able to walk away from the accident with not even a seat belt bruise. After the crash we checked the car and the seat didnt move one bit. The seat belt has always been easy to use and after this accident I know it does that job. I am buying the same one.

This sale ends today, so check this out while you still can. I hope you all enjoy your Thursday!

Toys R Us Canada: Snugli Harnessed Booster Car Seat Only $136

Posted by on August 16, 2014 at 10:00 AM

Toys R Us Canada: Snugli Harnessed Booster Car Seat Only $136

Toys R Us has a great online only deal on the Snugli Harnessed booster car seat, now only $135.97, with a regular price of $265.99.

This deal is on the camo fabric, which I think is great for a girl or boy as it is black and grey and white. I think it’s also a good pattern of fabric to hide stains, which inevitably happen in the car seat. This is a two in one booster car seat, which means you can use it as a car seat or a booster seat, just don’t forget that each car seat has an expiry on it and it doesn’t mean it will last your child’s whole buckled-in life. You’ll have to check what Snugli’s limits are for car seats and booster seats.

It also has Outlast technology on the fabric, which means it regulates temperature, which is awesome. There is not too much worse than hearing “I’m hot” from the backseat. This seat starts with children who are a minimum of 22lbs, which my oldest has far surpassed at age one.

Besides looks and comfort, this is also a safe seat that has SureLatch, one-hand, six-position height adjustment and an adjuster that turns green when the top tether is securely tightened, so you know you are doing it right.

I looked around for comparable prices and only found higher ones like from Shop.ca, which has this seat on sale for $172.49. Otherwise, I didn’t see it at any other Canadian stores. In general, this is a great price for a car seat/booster seat.

Shipping is going be $10 off, and for me came to about $25, which still makes it cheaper than Shop.ca’s price (which includes shipping).

I found various reviews online, which were good, stating the cupholders were handy and the fabric kept them cool/warm when they needed to.

Babies R Us Canada Freebie: Free 3-Pc Car Seat Accessory With Purchase Of Any Britax Car Seat ($50 Value)

Posted by on July 20, 2014 at 10:00 PM

Babies R Us Canada Freebie: Free 3 Pc Car Seat Accessory With Purchase Of Any Britax Car Seat ($50 Value)

Shopping for a car seat? Toys R Us has a great freebie going on right now: with purchase of any Britax car, you will also get a free 3-piece car accessory value pack.

Valued at $49.99, the Britax 3-piece car accessory value pack comes with:

  • a vehicle seat protector
  • an EZ-Cling window shade with 30+ UPF
  • a full-size kick mat

Just the other day, I was driving with my little one in the backseat and I had to make sure that the sun wouldn’t be beaming down on her in full force from our positioning in the parking lot. Whether I was being overprotective or not makes no difference but a window shade could have definitely simplified the whole process of driving around with her in the back. In fact, I have often found myself trying to shield her from the sun as hubby drove and I was in the backseat with her.

Although this accessory pack may not seem worth it to those of you shopping around for an infant car seat, I actually wish I could have taken advantage of such a promotion when I was shopping around for a car seat, just to have all of these items for when the time came to officially switch car seats to a forward facing one.

I particularly like that the window shade has a 30+ UPF to protect little ones from the damaging rays of the sun. In general, this accessory pack has some pretty great reviews, like this one:

All you would need to protect your car and toddler from each other. The mat is very rugged and can withstand a beating. The kick mat looks sleek and blends in with the car’s seats without wanting attention. The UV protector on the window is clingy and doesn’t fall like some other brands.

The only other place I found this value pack at is at Amazon’s Marketplace and even there, it’s actually $79.99.

As for shipping rates, I individually added the Britax B-Safe infant car seat at $199.99 and the Britax Pinnacle CT Harness 2-Booster for $399.99 and the fee stayed the same at $40 ($50 minus a $10 discount automatically applied). The car seat accessory value pack was also automatically added at checkout.

Best Buy: The Eddie Bauer Pilot Stroller Travel System is $199.99 ($130 Off)

Posted by on April 18, 2014 at 7:30 PM

Best Buy: The Eddie Bauer Pilot Stroller Travel System is $199.99 ($130 Off)

You can pick up the Eddie Bauer Pilot Travel System (car seat and stroller) from Best Buy for $199.99 through April 19.

If you’re in the market for a new infant car seat and stroller, the Eddie Bauer Pilot Travel System at Best Buy is definitely worth checking out. This travel system normally sells for $329.99 but is $130 off right now. I did a little price checking and discovered that this is a pretty hot deal, since the same system currently sells for $369.99 at Sears, $329.99 at Babies R Us, and a whopping $393.96 at Amazon.ca. Almost makes me wish I had another baby on the way so I could justify buying one. Almost.

Back when I did need a stroller, I didn’t purchase a travel system, but wished I had. The convenience of being able to take your sleeping baby right from the car and into the stroller without unstrapping and waking him/her is a real plus. I also really like the look of this stroller. With it’s oval shape and modern colour scheme it has some of the flair of the higher-end stroller systems, but without the higher-end prices.

The sun canopy, multi-position recline, and lightweight frame are also handy features in a stroller. Particularly the lightweight frame, I used to walk everywhere with my son when he was in a stroller, and once I added a diaper bag and groceries I was grateful I hadn’t chosen a large heavy model (especially when he started to get bigger and heavier, as we live at the top of a large hill!).

Quantities are limited on this item and the discounted price is only available through April 19, so best to shop soon if you’re interested.

This item will ship for free.
