Deal Details

The following Recaro ProRide rear facing/ front facing car seat is $179 at Amazon after applying 20% off Amazon Mom's Appreciation coupon "BABY2013". The coupon is going to be expiring in Feb 1st. This is the lowest price ever on this model according to SD search.

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 Smilie

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 Smilie

ProRide link to Amazon [amazon.com]

Note: They also has RECARO Prosport Car seat (non Rear Facing) for toddlers for the same price after coupon. Just search for it.

Edit:
Just woke up Smilie 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 FrownSo 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.

Walmart has the same price as Amazon before coupon

so if you have BabyRUs coupons, you can probably price match to Walmart.

Man glad I picked up the Recaro equivalent older model for $99 back in the day. I have 4 Recaro kids car seats and they are all solidly built. If your kids are on the wider side they might not be as comfortable. Britax I hear are just as good, but their foot print is a lot bigger, so trying to fit it in a smaller car would be tough.

Consider buying the ProSport instead. This model converts to a booster seat when your kid gets older. This can save you like bucks in the future. The ProRide does not convert to a booster.

ProSport doesn't rear-face. At least that was the reason I went with the convertible
ProRide.

ProRide: Rear-facing: appropriate for children who are 37.5" tall or less and who weigh 5 to 35 pounds/ forward facing: appropriate for children who are 50" tall or less and who weigh 20 to 70 pounds

ProSport: For a child 27 to 59 inches tall and 20 to 90 pounds; Booster Usage: For a child 27 to 59 inches tall and 30 to 120 pounds

In my case my infant car seat carrier is rated up to 30 pounds. After my child is too big for the infant car seat carrier I'll have him in the ProSport

Have a 4 month old son. He is in a graco snugride 35. He is thin and long so height limit will probably get him out of it before weight limit. Snugride will probably last him until he is a year old.

2 questions:

Which one should I buy? Proride or prosport?

Is this a good enough deal to sit on a car seat this long? Amazon's 365 day return policy makes it work I guess.

Smokin price, lowest I've seen yet. I bought one a few months ago for my (now) 1 yr old for $220 IIRC. He loves it, I love it. If you're on the fence I say jump on it!

Well, he needs to be rear-facing until at least 2. The snugride height limit is 32", so it seems likely that he'll exceed that well before he's 2. So, I think your best choice is to go with the proride. Once he exceeds those limits, then you can get him a decent belt-positioning booster like the ProBooster that's currently $72 with the coupon: http://www.amazon.com/Recaro-ProB...B003JUL83Q

Fits well in a 2007 Nissan pathfinder. Hope that helps at all.

I paid ~$225 for mine in Blue Opal and we've been using it for almost a year now. My kid is 30 pounds at almost 2.5 years and large for his age. This is his most comfortable car seat and he enjoys sitting higher. We were going back and forth between this, Britax, and Sunshine Kids (now Diono). Recaro won out. The seat is well constructed, sturdy, and HEAVY. may not be for smaller cars, but we have used it in a Mazda Protege, Honda Element, and daily in our Pontiac Vibe just fine. This is a steal.
