Good Deal on a Pioneer?


Active member
I'm shopping ahead for a combination seat that won't get used until at least next summer, most likely. The only one I like that fits in my car is the Pioneer. Well, I am sure the Frontier and Pinnacle would fit the same, but they are way overkill for my petite LO!

LO got very excited about having a pink seat in the other brands, but current year Pioneers don't have a pink fashion, and Confetti is more purple than is desired. If I keep an eye out for a good sale in the next couple months, I would want to try to find a pink cover, which adds expense. Then I found this: I know this is last year's fashion, but I don't mind. Even 7 years of use will get LO to age 10.

Am I likely to find a better deal than $170 with a pink cover? How long is this likely to be available? Thanks!

Edit: What could I expect for a great Cyber Monday deal on a Pioneer with a current fashion?

I think you could probably get a slightly better price ($10 or so less) on a Pioneer at peak deal. I'm not sure about in the fashion you want.

So if you like this fashion and price I'd say go for it.

Thanks! Just when I thought this was the seat, V tells me she will want a different color when she is older and actually using the seat! I am hoping some info about the secret Chicco seat will come out before the big sales so I can make sure the Pioneer is what I really want. We have loved our Chicco seats, and I was sad when our NextFit was crashed out and I had to get the 4Ever.

Can you give me an idea of the lowest prices I might be able to expect on the Frontier and Pinnacle too? They might get into my budget with a really good sale, I think.

I paid $190 for a Frontier when I bought one. That's about the lowest I've seen. I've seen $205 for the Pinnacle (though I got mine as an open box return at target for $135.)
