    Britax's - Newest Manufacture Date?

    It's time to order Joshua's new carseats and I'm going with Marathons or Decathlons, not sure yet. I've only ordered from Albee Baby before and all their seats say 2006 on them. I want to get the most recent manufacture date possible, but I also want a good price. What's the best online store to go through for that?

    I have no means of hijacking I just wanted to pose a few ?'s about this seat in the link.

    It says it's a 2006 marathon? Is the manu. date less than 1 mo old still?

    Also is it a great deal because of what? Just because of a discontinued color (whic I like bTW ) or what?

    TIA!!!!

    I was calling around recently and www.bambinibaby.com has some 2007 DOM's. Also they were very nice. I also called BestBuyBaby, TravellingTikes, Albee baby and DreamTime Baby (this last one won't give out DOM's) because they had good prices on the MA.

    www.arunningstroller.com will match any price you find, and she'll tell you the DOM over the phone of the exact seat she's shipping.
    I'm glad you're a safe driver. I'm eating cereal and applying mascara using my rear view mirror while playing bejeweled on my iPhone. And I'm driving right behind you. 
    You're only as safe as the most dangerous driver on the road. Buckle accordingly.

    I ordered a Blvd. (Shannon cover) from Baby Catalog during their big sale in mid-February and received it last week (due to a back order) with a March 6, 2007 DOM, woohoo.

    How is that possible? Unless somehow you picked it up from the Britax factory.
