I know this probably seems like a silly question since I NEED a carseat, but should I buy it now? Target has this travel system on sale for $90 (free shipping) and the original price is about $30 more. I know realistically that no one is going to buy my carseat for me, but I'm afraid of buyers remorse...but I also would hate to miss the sale. Here's the system...

Graco Snugride Infant Carseat Plus Stroller Fram... : Target

I did some research on the carseat and it only goes up to 22 lbs, which is really ok by me because by that point, I would buy a convertible and I figure just having the stroller frame would be great for just me and baby while I'm on maternity leave and Noelle's in school.

It would be more expensive to buy a larger carseat and a frame separately...so...what do you think? I think the sale ends today.

I would buy it and keep the receipt just in case you need to return it. Even if no one actually buys you a carseat, you may get a few gift cards later and there could be another sale.. I would buy it now and keep an eye out.

Yeah, that is a great deal. I know the snap and go strollers along usually go for $80 on their own. I would buy it.

I agree - I'd definitely do it, and just keep the receipt in case. You have to snag the deals when they come, IMO!

Ok, I just checked and I can return the item to the store if I need to and Target has a 90 day return policy...so nothing to do but check out right?

Right! We'll hold your hand as you do it if you need, hon! I am the same way with more expensive purchases, so I get how you're feeling...but totally think this is a good idea for you

And you know I still haven't hit submit yet?

I'm checking out my registry and seeing if there's anything else I can order...may as well with free shipping.

If I were you I would get an ebates account (you get a $10 gift card for signing up right now and spending $25) click the target link there and you get an additional 3% back on your purchase.

I am so cheap and always have buyers remorse too, but that does seem like a pretty good deal so I would do it.

Yeah I have a hard time with big and expensive purchases too. Especially one like that where I can't have a couple days to think it over.

Even if it's something I absolutely need...I still have that twinge of guilt
