Need a car seat? Here's a great deal on the Dionier rainier convertible and booster car seat that I just took advantage of myself! Originally priced at $399.99, it's now on sale for $339.99 and you can save an additional $75 by entering the Bargainmose exclusive Shop.ca coupon code MOOSE75OFF300JULY at checkout. Shipping is free as well!
A couple of days ago, I finally decided that enough was enough and that I would be getting a new car seat as my little one is over a year old and still riding around in her bucket seat. She fits within the weight restrictions but getting her in and out of it is a pain. Plus, the combination of her weight and that of the car seat makes it impossible to carry her from the car to the door or vice versa.
Since my baby is tall, I had a look around for the kind of convertible car seat that I could potentially get and after asking in a number of forums, I settled on getting either the Diono Radian RXT, which is currently priced at $379.99, or the aforementioned Diono Rainier. Both are awesome car seats and have high weight and height restrictions but ultimately, I settled on the Rainier because it's currently on sale. Unlike the RXT, the Rainier also has reinforced sides, which means that it should, in theory, provide even more protection in case of the unspeakable.
A quick note about the price: the $75 credit is only applied after the order total has been calculated with the taxes. I found this part to be quite disappointing considering it doesn't make much sense for taxes to be calculated before the applied credit but it's just something to keep in mind:
Even with the credit being applied afterwards, the price is still a fantastic one for this car seat, so don't let it deter you if you're tempted by this deal! Depending on the province you're located in, the taxes will also vary. Mine were adjusted for Quebec.
You can get the Rainier car seat in either the limited edition white houndstooth colour or in either orchid (purple) or black houndstooth. In terms of features, you can sit a baby as young as 5lbs. You can rear-face up to 50lbs, forward-face from 22 to 65 lbs and then convert it to a booster seat up to 120lbs. The amazing part about this car seat is that, along with the Radian RXT, these are the only ones on the market that will allow you to rear-face for that long!
