    Our Toys R Us (Richmond, VA) had the Triumph Advance on sale for $119.99, but I didn't check the DOM. (Also, while I was there, I showed the T.A. to a confused-looking mom who was thinking of buying a Cosco combo seat; not sure if she took my recommendation, but I tried!)

    Was it maybe the old Triumph LX and not the Triumph Advance?

    I am not sure when the new Triumph was released so perhaps that is why it has an older DOM and was on sale.

    Off to see when the Triumph Advance was released....

    eta I see that the new version was released last summer..so I guess it could be new version. Too bad it has such a old DOM.
    *DD N 5 Years 46 inches/44 lbs FF in a Marathon/Parkway SG/Turbo Booster/ and Harnessed Nautilus
    *DS H 7 Years 49 inches/51 lbs in a Monterey and Turbo Booster
    and a Harmony and Radian as back up seats

    We got an EFTA in Raven for $97 (tax included) at TRU on Friday--it was on clearance for $129, plus 20% off clearance items, PLUS I had a 15% off coupon!!! (DOM was 01/08). Apparently, our TRU isn't going to carry this particular one now, but that had a EFTA in Sandbox that they are going to carry.

    "Oooh - is that the one with the alligator LATCH clips?"

    No, sorry, it's not. It's pretty much the "lowest" end model--no real extra frills. It has EPS foam, a decently padded cover, and an infant body pillow (bottom/sides and for behind the head).

    I'm pretty sure the only one w/the alligator LATCH clips is the most expensive one at BRU for $169 or $179 (it's grey/black, too).

    Re: Evenflo Triumph Advance LX-Clerance at babies r us

    The newest Evenflo Advance car seats are being marketed as having passed Evenflo's Side Impact Protection crash test. I just spoke with Evenflo and was told that after the Discovery recall (coming off it's base in side collision tests) they tested their Triumph Advance models and found they passed. So..the newer Triumph Advance models (orange & blue box) now state that these seats now pass Evenflo's side impact crash test. Per Evenflo there is no difference in the seats. Babies R Us is changing their SKU numbers for the newer seats coming in, which is why the older models are clearanced. So grab those older seats while they last!

    It should be noted too, that there is no federal standard for side impact crash testing and that this is Evenflo's own test.

    "The newest Evenflo Advance car seats are being marketed as having passed Evenflo's Side Impact Protection crash test. "

    Very nice!!! The extra testing that Britax does is what reassures me about our Britax seat (and Fisher Price seat) and why I like it so well, so it's nice that Evenflo is at least doing more testing of their own now. I know it's not the same as standardized tests that all seats should be tested w/but it's better than nothing!

    Thanks!
