    Re: Anyone still find FPSVD??

    It is looking like Albeebaby is the only place that has them anymore. Judi had said Laredo was showing they had two, but I just called and they say they do not have any.

    I wish Albee baby would knock their price down now!
    Are people even buying them at that price right now?

    Re: Anyone still find FPSVD??

    You're welcome. Judi has worked really hard on this so I figured while I had some time I would help. I think I called every state and asked them to check their computers for that state for the SKU. Then the three or four stores that came up as having them looked and could not find any. Of course, I could not go look in person but I was on hold for a while. I even called a couple stores twice to see if I could get a different person

    I can't believe albeebaby is selling very many. Maybe people just don't know they are a year old. It does not say that they are discontinued on there.

    Re: Anyone still find FPSVD??

    No prob. Ack, inventory started today, Lifesavers ended. I am tired! I won't get any shipments until after inventory, on Thursday. I did not see any, when I went to check on things today. It is bugging me too, the stores that supposedly have one, and they don't. When everyones inventory is over, the numbers should be more accurate.

    Re: Anyone still find FPSVD??

    I wonder does Albee baby price match? I would love another one for MIL if it was comparable to what an Uptown would cost me.

    Re: Anyone still find FPSVD??

    I did email albeebaby asking if they were going to lower the price considering the seats are getting old. It said, "We have a large number in stock. Have a nice day."

    I don't know if they price match but that would be great. I imagine they will come down if we keep watching.

    Re: Anyone still find FPSVD??

    I just emailed them, asking if there were any plans to mark them down considering that they are $29.99 at Baby Depot. We will see what they say.

    Re: Anyone still find FPSVD??

    I called Albee yesterday asking if they were going to mark down or if they would price match. The guy I spoke to said they had no plans to mark down. When I told him they were discontinued and that Baby Depot had them marked down to $29 - he said he couldn't/wouldn't match that.

    He also told me I must have been confusing the seat with the booster. I told him no - I knew what I was talking about and it was the seat.

    They emailed me back and said no as well. Their Email was very pert. You would think that if somone was trying to buy from you then they would be a little nicer.

    Re: Anyone still find FPSVD??

    Maybe ALL of us should email/call Albee Baby & bug them untill they mark them down? Hehe! That is what I think we should do! I want one so bad, exspecially after seeing Holly's! I even convinced DH to let me have one for $30, now I can not find one! I am !

    Re: Anyone still find FPSVD??

    You'd think that if they do have lots of them in stock that they'd want them to fly off the shelves (even at a lower price). Sorry, I won't be buying one since I just another seat and I couldn't wait until h*ll freezes over for them to mark down expired seats. And I knew I'd be too far down the list for the "Amazing Judi" to work her magic. Thanks!!!
