YMMV as it is clearance... B&M only!

$79.98 for either of these seats (these are the Deluxe/DLX versions), which normally sell for $159.

Great seats for 50% off! Bought two with identical DOMs of 4/2012!

Note: Walmart and Amazon have the "LX" (target clearance is an upgraded version) model for $129. I guess this clearance is a result of the newly released Graco MyRide 70 which Target now sells for $159.

I have both and find them to be very much equal. Britax built that name as the first, but all the current contenders are just as good..and are the reason Britax had to bring down their prices Smilie
thanks for the info! will have to look at the carseats again as my daughter will be ready for front-facing seat in a few months.

btw, know very few moms who are that ribbed! Wink

They changed the law recently in MI so we have RF till 2 years of age. I find teh GRaco to be HUGE.. however very comfy. the marathon has three recline positions is a bit easier to swap out and is narrower.. but besides those things, if you have the space for the big MYRIDE, I have no complaints.

I'm hoping to be that ripped again.. I'm 6 months pregnant right now.. ! That was taken about a month before I found out about my little surprise # 2 Smilie thx!

I saw this carseat in all 4 of my Targets today...They seem to have a lot of the green but not that many pink...So if you dont find it at your regular Target try another.

The baby gear has now been marked to 50% off. I purchased this carseat for $149 today...It says not sold in stores on the website but I saw 3 today at 2 different Targets.

Please understand how Target Clearance deals work. They will ALWAYS be YMMV because each and every store sets their own clearance and markdown schedule. This means that one store in your town may have an item clearance for 15% off, another won't have it on clearance at all, and a third may have it at 90% off. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme nor reason to this. It just depends upon how fast specific items turn in a given store. If your closest Target sells tons of car seats, then the markdown schedule will most likely be slower than at a store that doesn't sell that many. They don't need to mark them down much, or at all in order to clear out excess inventory. For instance, the Amazon Kindle's that Target discontinued? My local stores still have them in inventory at full price. They have never been marked down a dime, while they were blown out in many other markets for 50-75% off! So if your local store doesn't have this price, that's just the breaks. Wait it out if you can to see if the price finally drops to where you want it, or drive to another store and see what their price is.

Oh, and to save you the trouble of asking... Target stores will NEVER match another Target store's clearance price.

That said, great car seat and a great price if you can find it!

I'm incredibly happy to hear that MI changed their law to RF until age 2! That's awesome! However... It's still a minimum requirement. Your child is 500% safer rear facing than they are forward facing up to age 4. That's the age we REALLY want to shoot for if at all possible, as the bones in their neck will have finished fusing. So rear face to age 3-4! Your child will be MUCH safer that way.

If you have ANY car seat related questions, do not hesitate to ask!

And that was my point in my earlier post. I think it is insane that FL law only requires children under age 4 to be in a separate car seat (and does not specify which one), and then from 4-5, can be in a separate seat or other child restraint such as a seat belt. I know every state is different, but there should be some basic Federal standard. I have relatives in MD, and there I believe you have to be in a booster until age 8 and 65 lbs., but in FL my 4 year old can be in nothing but a seat belt.

Yeah, some states have car seat laws that truly suck. Texas is one of the worst. I'm glad you are going the safer route. Always remember, my physics beats your state law any day of the week! Wink

I'm glad it is the law so I can preach it- I'm a car seat nazi...so no worries here.. the only reason my daughter turned aroudn in her seat 5 years ago is becuase she was over the weight for RF! LOL. they didn't have a seat past 35 lbs RF 5 years ago.. So now they seats have higher limits and the baby boy will hopefully be able to RF the full 2 years// hopefully longer

(My daughter hit 32 lbs at a year!)

I know it's all about individual preference, but do you really need a seat like this or the marathon that go up to 65lbs or would the britax50 be ok? By the time a kid grows out of the 50 won't they be ready for a booster anyways rather than a bulky car seat?

depends on the child...MOST often, a child will outgrow the height before the weight.. so you are really looking to maximize the height and weight on what you purchase. Some children are tall and slender, they outgrow a seat based on height, and really they are still light enough to be in a 5pt harness. A harness isn't a huge deal in a front or rear collision(still better though! Racecar drivers wear a harness!), but in a side impact, roll over, or multiple impact, it helps prevent ejection. Plus with a harness it offers more over all safety versus a shoulder/lap belt combo. I spend the money on the carseats and don't cut corners. I bought a Nautilus just for a couple extra inches (that's what she said) but to me, it is worth it.... And now ther are LOTS of seats with increased weight and height, it makes me happy to see this... Too many mismatched vehicles on the road and while a VW bug collides with an Excursion, I want all children to have a chance to be safe. I cringe when I see parents rushing their kids into "the next seat" Nothing is as safe as the seat you are outgrowing.. use your carrier as long as you can, rear face for AS long as possible (kids who have never faced forward have NO IDEA they are "missing" anything (we are imposing those perceptions on them) When they do face forward keep them in that harness and do not rush to put that in that piece of crap glorified phonebook of a booster seat. (The most basic seat before a child is in the car with nothing but a shoulder and lap belt) Protect your child, keep them RF, in the back seat and in seat until they truly outgrow it. Don't rush this stage.

Appropriate ages and emotional maturity for booster usage:

4 years AND 40 lbs is the BARE minimum for booster seat usage! No child younger or smaller than this should EVER be in a booster seat! Most children at that bare minimum do not fit properly in a booster seat, regardless of what your state law says. My physics trumps your state law each and every time!

Boostering is about 30% fit and 70% maturity. Firstly, your child has to properly fit in a booster seat. That means the shoulder belt lies across from the shoulder and through the sternum. If it rides high on the neck, then the fit is wrong. If it doesn't bisect the strongest part of the chest, then the fit it wrong. Next is the lap belt. That has to ride low on the hips. If it is riding high on the abdomen or into the stomach area then the fit is wrong.

If all these things are correct, then we have to look at the emotional maturity of your child. They must be able to sit 100% correctly in the seat 100% of the time. Not some of the time. Not most of the time. Not almost all of the time. 100% all of the time. Every single time. If your child fails that test at all, then they are not ready for a booster. Even then, you need to make sure that you put the child safety locks on the back doors so they can only be opened from the outside.

Now, tell me... Is your child ready to stay boostered? If all of the above answers are correct, then keep them boostered. If your child fails any of the above tests, then no. They are not ready for a booster and should still be in a 5-point harness until they are. If you have any other questions, do not hesitate to ask.

Is your child ready for an adult seatbelt? Do the 5-Step test below:

1) Does the child sit all the way back against the auto seat?

2) Do the child's knees bend comfortably at the edge of the auto seat?

3) Does the belt cross the shoulder between the neck and arm?

4) Is the lap belt as low as possible, touching the thighs?

5) Can the child stay seated like this for the whole trip?

If you can answer "yes" to every question, your child is okay to ride without a booster. If you answer "no" to any of these questions, your child still needs a booster in order to be safe.


Is my child ready to sit in the front seat?

The bare minimum for a child to sit in the front passenger seat is 12 years old. Period. End of discussion. This is the law in most states. If it isn't in your state, then your car seat laws suck. My personal preference is to push it to 13 years old because that extra year will give them both the height for a better seat belt fit, and the weight to better control the weight sensors in the seat for airbag deployment.

Ok, after getting the Graco I went back and looked to see what else they had on clearance. I also picked up a Baby Trend Encore convertible stroller/car seat for half off ($84.xx). They also had a the Britax Classic car seat half off ($99) and a few other things on clearance (baby monitors, etc. for 50% off).
