I bought a Chicco carseat, and have been putting off buying the carseat adapter for my stroller until I had some other stuff done (lower on the list of "must haves"- but still there). Well, I was looking tonight and just found out that the dang thing won't fit the model of stroller I have! The Chicco carseat adapter is made to fit the 2011 model and later, and I have a June 2010 model.
I am so frustrated. These strollers are expensive...way too expensive to not make an adapter for the "older" models that aren't really old. The worst part is that I JUST took the carseat out of the box last week. So, now what the heck do I do? I had wanted to just get the Baby Jogger City Select, but didn't want to spend another $400 on a stroller, plus $60 on the adapter, and $100 on the boogie board for DS1. I'd just decided to keep my BOB and get the adapter and boogie board (scooter) thing as a cheaper option, but now it's not going to freaking work!
WELL, I've wasted my night stressing over this, and I just pulled the trigger and bought the new BOB. I think mine should easily sell for $250 even though I listed it for $300 with the carseat adapter I have the doesn't fit my carseat. I found the new BOB priced at $321 tonight on Amazon, and our account had a $15 off coupon, so I bought the brand new one (that's $400 elsewhere) for $300 shipped. You know how prices fluctuate on Amazon, so I was worried that if I waited, the price would go back up. Plus we have the Amazon Mom thing that gives free 365 day returns- so if my stroller happens not to ever sell, I can ship the thing back for free.
We needed to buy DS a new seat since his expires in 2013, and the carseat adapter and a cupholder are the other two things we'll be buying anyway, so there's only 1 thing on the list of eligible products that we weren't planning to buy before the April 1, 2013 deadline (the carrier). I'm pretty excited to be able to get a free Britax Boulevard for this little guy's next seat by spending an extra $70 (and maybe reselling it for a little less so that it's not really that much out of pocket if I'm lucky enough to get that to work!). That's a big $320 purchase we won't have to worry about a year from now if this all works out.
Anyway, lots of if's, but I'm at least feeling less panicked about not having a stroller that would work with Bub's seat that we already forked out $200 for and can't return!
P.S.-- DH is really loving me for coming in at 1:45 AM and waking him up to make sure he was on board. LOL. I got the typical "do what you need" response, but I would feel terrible not at least discussing it a little before I purchased it, even if it's returnable.
Sounds like something I would get myself into! I normally have that luck! I am glad you guys had the money and you figured out a solution though! I really hope your other one sells. Sounds like such a bummer and stressful too! Good luck on that and I hope your new stroller works out great.
