They have a double stroller on clearance for 103.00. I have it in my cart, and I have free shipping, and I have a 10% discount code for it. After tax, it's still less than a hundred bucks!

Should I or should I not? I will need a double stroller, for sure... but is 99 bucks too much for one?? I don't have a clue... I had one when my other girls were little, but it was a gift, so I have no clue...

Oh, and I linked through boxtops, so 1.5% would go to our school.

Double strollers are pretty pricey. $100 sounds like a good price to me!

That is an awesome price! I bought my double stroller (with the infant carseat included) for 270$.

That sounds like a good price to me. I see them on Craigslist used for that much. I say go for it.

I think it sounds good. The single stroller I bought was $50 (the cheapest one they had) so $100 for a double sounds very reasonable.

Yup, buy it now! That is an awesome price, especially with free shipping.

I need a double stroller too, will have to go and check it out.

I am holding off until this afternoon... my mom and dad have my old double in storage (I had forgotten). My dad's checked it out, and he said that here aren't holes or anything in the fabric... but it needs a good cleaning. I'm going to see if I can clean it up. If not, then I'll hit the purchase button tonight. If I can, then I'll save the dollars on the GC to get other stuff.

Def see if you can clean up the one you already have (bc it'll give you more $$$ for later). But 100 bucks for a double is awesome. Is it a side by side or a tandem one? Luckily since the kiddo will be 3 by the time the next one arrives we shouldn't need one! Whew!

I remember looking at the graco tandems, but they wouldn't fit in the trunk of my car, and were heavy (I have bad knees and can't lift very heavy things). I think it would work so much better for a van. =-) They're awesome strollers though, especially since you can put the infant seat on it too. I think 103 is a great price =-)

I had a tandem that I never used because it was a BEAST to push. I ended up just using a single stroller and slinging the baby instead. Worked out much better.

That said, $100 is an AWESOME price for a double.

When I first started watching the girls, our son was 2 months and their daughter had just turned 2. I took them on long walks carrying my son and she was in the stroller. It worked well until she was old enough to walk herself and my kiddo was killing my back!!

Did the stroller clean up well? I'd for sure go with that option and save the GC for other stuff later. $100 would seem like a pretty solid price for a new double, though, especially including shipping, etc. That's a big ole box to have shipped.

$100 is a great price for a dbl stroller. I have a used dbl stroller I pd $70 or $80 on ebay for it. I use it every day when I walk to pick up Alexis....I put Claire in the sling, Paige and the 9 month old I watch in the dbl and the 25 month old either walks or gets pushed in an umbrella stroller by the neighbor. I look like a walking circus!!! lol
