    So weird... I don't like that Target does that. I would check first thing next Monday morning - that's definitely the markdown day!

    I think I'll take the car the rest of the week to keep checking on them. $99 is still a good price, but since I don't NEED it then I'd rather wait until they are $49. I think I'll call the store that is supposed to be out and just ask them to look for them, sometimes those stock things are a little inacurate, and if they DO have one, dh could stop by on his way home.
    Holly, did they actually scan the box/input the numbers? Sometimes it's less but not marked down yet...

    OT - Is it okay to use something like this since it doesn't have any strap covers?

    Re: RA50 $49.98 at Target!

    I just got 2 of them and am trying to get one more. I went this morning and they were still $139. When I got home I decided to call just in case after seeing this thread and they said they were indeed $49. I sent my sister to pick them up. One was marked $139 and the other wasn't marked at all.

    I called another target in my area and they said they had one for $49 as well. I am going to try to have my dad pick it up on his way home.

    She took them to a price scanner to double check before heading to check out.

    Hey, when they mark them down, is that done in the computer or do they have to go and scan each one to mark it down?
    If I bought one now for $100 and waited a week or so when they should be $50 even if they sellout before they'd go to $50, could I go return it and have my dh or Anne turn around and buy it again and have it ring up $50?
    Does that make sense?

    If I buy one or two now for $100 each, and therefore they sell out of them, will the price go down in their system even if they are sold out?

    You may still want to call (or stop in if it's not too far away), I don't know how reliable the locator is (it seemed to be pretty good for the Chicagoland area, but who knows!?)

    Also, if you call, I wouldn't trust what they say about the price unless they actually SCAN it. Someone on another thread reported that they told her that the seat was FULL price, but she went in anyway - turns out they just hadn't marked it yet - it was 49.98...
    HTH!
    ETA = Holly, you must have been typing at the same time as me - sorry! I think they continue to mark down whether they have it or not. So if someone returned one that they had bought at $139.99 and the store had none, when they put it back out, I believe it would be $49.98.... The problem is you have to actually wait for them to put it back out on the floor, which might not be right away. I guess you could have one of them wait behind you to return something else and say "hey, wait, I want that - can I buy it?" Ha ha.

    Re: RA50 $49.98 at Target!

    That might be an option then. I really want to get one of these! I may just do that, if it would work.

    Yep, that's exactly what I'd do!

    Re: RA50 $49.98 at Target!

    I went to the Target close to where I am visiting right now and nothing seemed to be marked down. After reading this I thought maybe I should have had someone scan one, so I called and asked what they scanned. She said $199, but I don't know whether she scanned it or just looked at the shelf. Oh well, not that I really need one right now.

    DId they have more than one? Maybe you buy one to be safe and then you check next week if they have another. To be safe I'd wait two weeks to return. Then make sure you buy something else on a different receipt to have DH or a friend return and then ask about the item to buy it. I'm sure the teenage sales clerk with the streaked hair and body piercings won't care. One less thing for her to do before her shift ends!

    FWIW - I was ready to buy mine at $99, which is what I was checking for. I was SHOCKED that it was $49!

    Re: RA50 $49.98 at Target!

    Yeah, Anne said they had 3 when she was there. I called the store about 15 minutes ago to see if maybe they reduced the price later in the day, and they said they had 2 for $99 each. So I'm going to head over there and try to get one today after dh goes to his 2nd job, I'll have to take dh to work to have the car, but thats not a big deal. I'll call Anne before I go and see if she wants me to pick up one for her too if they still have at least two.

    ETA, this will be great, then I won't have to stalk them each day!

    Re: RA50 $49.98 at Target!

    I just got the last one in Spokane for $49.98. I'm sooo excited. DS loves it and it is very pretty! I always loved our Roundabout but don't like that his head is over the top (even though it still fits him). This one just makes me feel better because it is taller. And for such a great price, I can put the other one in my daughters car for the occassional time she needs to transport him. That is so much easier than shuffling seats.

    Re: RA50 $49.98 at Target!

    I thought I posted from my Iphone... but you know how that goes.

    I scored!! I found three priced at $49.95 and snatched up two of them. My DD is playing with the buckles as I type. I'm so happy! My mom has been wanting a better seat since she only has a scerena and the straps allways seem to twist when she puts DD in.

    Yayayyyyy!

    Re: RA50 $49.98 at Target!

    Utahns, it was still $139 at Ft Union (checked at the scanner).

    and you don't have to drag boxes over. You can just enter the DPCI with the keypad on the right of the screen. It's 030-09-1930 (no dashes when you enter it).

    someone on Slickdeals posted that Lafayette IN has 2 for $49 as of noon today.
