    Picking an online store

    Assuming that all prices are identical, how do you choose where to buy your stroller?

    What do you normally look for? Do you look at the return policy, what accessories are available, merchant rating on other sites? Anything else?

    TIA

    Assuming all prices identical, the first place I'd choose would be a car-seat.org Sponsor.

    If they didn't have what I wanted, second would be a place I had worked with before, with free shipping and the item in stock.

    I have had fantastic luck with Albee Baby--their prices are good, no shipping costs over 100 bucks, and fast delivery. They have great CS too, if anything goes wrong. I heart them....

    Re: Picking an online store

    I bought my stroller from Elitecarseats last time. The price of the stroller was a set price everywhere that I looked. I had never seen the stroller in person, so I chose them for their shipping insurance. It was $5.95 (I think) and they would pay for return shipping and not charge a restocking fee.

    I love Albeebaby. We ordered one of our MA's from there and it came within 3 days. I will be ordering our new stroller there as well.

    We ordered our Regent from Baby Universe and had it within 3 days. Customer Service was fantastic. I have also heard great things about Albee Baby, but haven't personally used them yet
