Discount on S/C surf or good first purchase discounts on store cards?

I've decided to go for the Silver Cross Surf for DC3. For our funds it's very expensive at £500, but last child and been saving furiously so decision made.

Does anyone know of where I can purchase one with a discount, or if there are any store cards (or catalogues) that sell this model that offer a discount off first purchase (as far as i can see, Mothercare, Babies R Us and John Lewis all stock it)?

Any reviews would also be appreciated!

I dont know anything about the cost of a Surf, but there is a discount nursery supplier on Ebay who I often browse through (I bought a 'returns' Silver Cross pushchair from them that was immaculate but only 5% of the usual cost!!) and I noticed last night they had a few Surfs for sale - and I was going to have a look at the discount when I had opportunity. I don't know if that is of interest or whether you want the warranties etc of a brand new one. A friend had an issue with one pushchair she bought from these people and they immediately offered to sort it all out for her and did so.

Are you anywhere near the north east? Fenwicks in Newcastle currently selling them with a free car seat but they don't do Internet shipping!

There are a few Mothercare codes here that could work if you really want to nuy new.

Thanks for the replies-I'd seen the eBay store and was a bit concerned that they were shop returns, but reassured now by the positive experiences mentioned by Guildfordnanny, i'm not precious about it being immaculately oxed etc, just don't want to spend £400 for a shop soiled pushchair!

I think there will be a mixed bag IYKWIM but as you read through they do seem to say the condition. Mine had clearly been pushed along the ground (it may even have just been in the warehouse. It was missing a raincover which I knew about. But the fabrics were as new on mine. Like I said a friends fabrics weren't as clean but they apologised and offered her options. Apparently everything gets checked over before listing / sending out. If it's no good I am sure they do returns because they offered my friend that option.
