    Angry Cosco Scenera up $10 !

    has anyone else noticed the price jumped $10 for the scenera? i went in to my local walmart to pick one up, only to find it was $49.xx. i figured maybe the $40 price was online only, so i went back home and pulled it up online, and lo and behold... $49.xx online also!!! damn, i shouldn't have waited so long!

    I haven't noticed that....but I did notice that the Uptown is down from 99.99 to 89.99 at my local Walmart - and that's not a sale price!

    That stinks that the great $40 seat is now $50!

    Wal-Mart does that. It'll be $39.88 for a while, then it will go back up to $49.88 for a while, then it'll drop again, and then back up. It's insane. if you don't need it right now, keep your eyes open, it'll drop again, probably when BRU sends out their next round of $10 off coupons.

    What skaterbabscspt said is true.

    It'll go down in a month or two. I don't know WHY walmart does it, but they do.
    apparently, people put stuff here.

    Definitely check back.

    Also, sometimes, they actually tag the seats individually, a sticker on the box. If you are lucky enough to find one that is tagged $39, and it rings up $49, our particularly WM will sell it to you for the lower price, AND give you $10 or something like that, for your inconvenience.

    I bought my Scenera like that.

    Once, I found an endcap display of highback turbo-boosters. The big sign above it said $2.00.

    It is so they can put their "price cut" sign up and make people think they really did lower the price. Meijer does that here too. I really have to watch prices because they go up and down so much. If they really cut prices as often as they say they do, everything would be free by now. It must trick enough people into shopping there however. I've had several people tell me, "I can't afford to shop anywhere other than Wal-Mart." But the truth is Meijer is cheaper in a lot of things, at least at times. When my dd was on Pediasure, Wal-Mart's price for a 6 pack was $2 more than Meijer. I really need to make a price book comparing each, but then Meijer is closer, usually faster and doesn't have those annoying TVs blaring. I don't shop Wal-Mart often. Also, with them both playing price games, it is hard to keep up.

    Re: Cosco Scenera up $10 !

    I dont have a meijer near me and i am not even sure of what that is. I love wal-mart but i like the super center one better and the closest one is 45 mins away. I am used to everything being 20 mins away to get it. I have 4 or 5 baby stores 20 mins from my house. I love it. Driving 45 mins not my idea of fun.

    Re: Cosco Scenera up $10 !

    Oh yea, sorry. Meijer is a mid-west thing. It is very much like Super Wal-Mart, groceries, toys, pharmacy, housewares, electronics... I'm not sure which came into being first. We had Meijer first in our area by many years. There are no Meijer stores without groceries, unlike Wal-Mart.

    I have Meijer a few blocks away and Wal-Mart less than 3 miles away. Now, baby stores, those are all 40+ minutes away. So are all the Pediatric specialists, ugh, I have driven too many times to count to those places.

    Re: Cosco Scenera up $10 !

    The 5-point Scenera is usually $39.xx at the local Target, so I agree with the previous poster about checking out Target's price in your area because it might be lower than WalMart.

    Yes, I think Indiana has Meijer. It is a great store. We also live very near Meijer Gardens a botanical and sculpture gardens financed by the man who developed the Meijer store. The Garden's has one of two of the DaVince horses, really COOL!

    Re: Cosco Scenera up $10 !

    At my targets (there are 3 within a 15 minute radius) the scenera is $59! It kinda ticks me off since that is the one I will probably end up with cause I like blue. Now to wait until the price goes down.

    (My walmarts don't carry the uptown either. Rhode Island/Mass sucks for baby goods! )

    Re: Cosco Scenera up $10 !

    What is with all the different prices? It's crazy. When I bought mine a couple of weeks ago, both Walmart and Kmart were $49, but Target was still $39. I actually like the Target one the best. For some strange reason, it just seemed the most plush to me.

    Re: Cosco Scenera up $10 !

    i will try target tonight. i will not pay more than $40 for a scenera. granted, it's safe and RFs to 35, but it's pretty bare-bones and flimsy feeling.

    i spoke with a mgr at walmart and he said that store prices can vary from region to region to stay "competitive" with other regional brick and mortar stores. also, the internet prices are the same way-- they compete with other online retailers. walmart's (and target's, i guess) websites are not geared to compete with the brick and mortar versions of the same store, but other e-tailers. still, it's kind of infuriating.
