So I've FINALLY settled on the seat I want. However it's been difficult to find. so far I've only had luck finding it in store at Canadian tire, although online it lists Walmart as a carrier, the Walmart websites and stores I've been in today don't seem to have it in stock.

My parents are buying it for me and my mom is convinced she can get it cheap (this woman live for Ebay!) And wants to know if car seats go on sale regularly? Specifically The First Years True Fit....

Any help?

I wouldn't say regularly but randomly. Check amazon and babies r us. Amazon has it for $191.

I would also check at car-seat.org's Canadian page.

I got my True Fit for $150 in the US, and I don't think I have seen it for less than that. It looks like it is available from Walmart.com in the US...do they not ship to Canada?

you cant buy a car seat in the US and use it in canada (legally) even if they sell that same exact car seat sold in a canadian store - so OP if your mom does want to get a good deal for you make sure she buys it in canada

now the chances of anyone ever inspecting your car seat to make sure it has the transport canada sticker on it (or whatever its called) is pretty slim, but its something to be aware of

Customs actually checks and will confiscate it at the border. (dh is a border services officer) I think the plan is she'll just keep an eye out at the store and if it is reduced she'll pick it up and if not she'll pay full price right before we need it.

Thanks for the insight.
