    I just got an awesome deal!

    Having twins and we had registered for two britax B-safe seats. Bru retails them at 159.99. They are also currently having a sale and have them priced at 149.99. They are ALSO having a trade in event, so we traded in 2 old alpha omega elites to get 25% off each new seat. And because we are having twins, we AlSO got a 10% twin discount on each seat. We paid (before tax) $107 for each seat! Tell me I didn't work it! I'm so pleased with myself!

    I didn't know they still did a twin discount. I thought they stopped doing that because twins have gotten so common?

    Wonder if they will do it for existing twins or do you have to be pregnant?


    Good deal though!

    Re: I just got an awesome deal!

    Wowzers, what a deal! (technically they can't do all that, a manager really had to override things to make all that work, but I'm always happy when things end up in the customer's favor, I always try my hardest to stack things for people, it makes people come to my line more, lol ---I hope they were on your registry so you get the 10% back 10 weeks after the due date, and also a 1 year return policy instead of 90 days)

    Yinzermama, yeah, they still have 'multiple birth' as an option for a discount when someone buys 2 or more large identical items, but it's a manual option in the checkout computer, so the cashier has to know about it (which is... uh...rare), or the customer has to ask.

    I thought you couldn't do the trade in on sale prices?

    That's what I thought too. Curious to know if there's a way around it.

    You technically can't according to the fine print. Sounds like she just for a super generous manager that let it go through.

    Yeah, the 'hot deal' and 'hot sale' prices are absolutely not supposed to combine with the trade in. But it's definitely better to break a rule and lose a dollar to have a happy customer (with twins, who will come back shopping at your company for years... I've had managers both ways, the rule followers with angry guests and the people pleasers who generate lifelong BRU love).

    I've been known to happy dance for real when coupons work out in the customer's favor (I'm a major dweeb... )
