Personally, I have done quite a bit of research on car seats for my one year old and I narrowed down the choice to this Recaro and Britax Advocate (the current top of the line Britax). I went through 100s of online reviews and personally checked out both of them at a local Baby R US. The Advocate shape is just a little too big for my preference (about 22 inches across when I measured it) and Recaro seat looks better
So are a lot of Recaro ProRide buyers at Amazon comparing with Britax brand. If you search "Britax" in Recaro's Amazon reviews, you will see a lot of happy Recaro buyers. One of the reviewers pointed out that the Recaro seat is tested according to German's safety standard of 45 miles/hour car accidents while the Britax is tested under US standard of 30 MPH accident.
Anyways, I got a lot out of SD over the years, and I am just doing my part to help out parents in SD. We all can use extra $ especially those of us with kids

Just woke up like one of the post said, you have to be in Amazon Mom's program to make use of the coupon, it is free to join a trial for 90 days (and thats what I have done). It is the same as Amazon Prime with free 2 days shipping, just make sure that you turn off the auto renewal if you decide not to renew.
The coupon only applies to the car seats sold by amazon only (not the third party sellers).
If you just joined Amazon Mom to buy this, one of the conditions for the coupon said you have to wait for at least 24 hours after joining Amazon Mom program before using the coupon So if you are on the fence about purchasing the car seat, join Amazon Mom program today or tomorrow just in case and buy it by Friday. If you wait till Friday to join, it will be too late as the coupon expired on Friday.
