I've found that I can get a whole package with colour pack, carrycot and car seat for approx £450.00

The question is before I go to this shop can anyone find it cheaper for me online??

I know it's been too long really! I've had a time of it (of course). Got over my tiredness only for it to come back and feel like poo. Found out it was pneumonia. Always bloody me! Then we went on holiday last week and now were back. Trying to find a day to meet up with you guys before next week........ Bumps good now and hard to miss!! Got my scan tomorrow the time has flown something chronic this time! How are you all?

Thank you grin

we are all good,but ive mainly been stuck in due to a major lack of buggyshock
we borrowed em's single which is FAB but DS is FAR to heavy to carry for long periods so only been out when i had to be!
it's okay now though i have a p&t verve on it's way! i went to see it at the oxford pram center and i think it's going to be brilliantgrin

im so sorry you've been feeling rubbish, pneumonia sounds awful! i hope your'e feeling better now!and that MrBlueEyes has been looking after you.
you can always call if you need anything.

have you got a due date yet? or a sex??!! will you be keeping it a secret? ooooh its so exciting!grin

blueeyedmonster Mon 29-Aug-11 21:08:30

shock shock shock I can't believe you've had a lack of buggy. Where did they all go?? Yay for a new one long will this p&t last ha ha. Hope it is as good as you're hoping!

It wasn't the best!! Felt like i'd been hit by a bus but I am feeling so much better now thanks. He has been looking after me really well bless him. Ds did too. Thank you, i'll make sure I do.

Yes jan 18th and hoping to find out the sex tomorrow. I am so excited, there's no way i'll be able to keep the sex a secret if we do manage to find out but names will be until baby is born grin

I want to buy this buggy soon. MrBlueEyes told me today it's a lot to spend on a buggy and he's not sure............pft like i'll be listening to him on that score wink

Before I get excited bargain hunting I have questions:

Stroller - which colour chassis?
Stroller Colour pack - have you chosen a specific colour yet?
Car Seat - which one? Oyster Pearl, Oyster Black, Maxi Cosi or Britax Baby Safe?
Carrycot - Which one? Black Pearl, Pearl, Smooth Black or Plush? Also with or without a colour pack?
Car seat adapters - are these included in your package?
With or without footmuff?
With or without coloured apron?
With or without changing bag?

blueeyedmonster Mon 29-Aug-11 21:19:55

Forgot there were so many options with it!!

stroller - silver chassis (for dp sake) but if you can find black for the same price then fab
stroller colour pack - That's one thing I have to do is chose the colour
car seat - most likely the oyster black
carrycot - black pearl with colour pack
car seat adaptors - not included as far as I know
without footmuff apron or changing bag

I think that's everything!

FriggFRIGG Mon 29-Aug-11 21:20:56

oh good im glad you found this saorise grin

FriggFRIGG Mon 29-Aug-11 21:21:44

or is that aswellas in disguise??

blue,i want to see you SOON!grin good luck with the scan!

blueeyedmonster Mon 29-Aug-11 21:30:22

You will I promise, trying to see if anyone is free thurs for a little bit. If not i'll be at group for a couple of weeks before ds starts pre0school <sob> Thank you grin

aswellasyou Mon 29-Aug-11 21:33:52

Frigg! grin
It really does depend on what colours you want and which carseat, but the cheapest places are usually, and

saoirse86 Mon 29-Aug-11 21:53:17

It is actually Saoirse! I like to do a bit of research too I just don't spend as much time on here as aswell does! wink

Ok, a quick look and on Boots you can get that list for £481.50 with £100.48 in points if you're in the parenting club. But they have only a few colour packs for the stroller.

What I'd do if you go with boots is swap silver chassis for black, swap black pearl carrycot for smooth black (£10 cheaper) and add car seat adapters (£15). That would make it £486.50 + £101.28 in points. Then use the points to get other essentials so the £100 worth of extras and the adapters only cost you an extra £36!

I know lots of people have found boots helpful when they've had problems so definitely worth considering.

Oh and if you don't like the colours they have available as colour packs then delete that so you have £436.50 + £93.28 in points and get the colour pack from here or here

You can get the same package you found originally except smooth black carrycot for £433.05 at Baby Equipment Complete. The adapters are £13.50 extra, having a black chassis is another £27. I got mine from there, although in store, not online, and they were very helpful. Also, if you find any of your bits cheaper within a week they'll match it plus 20% of the difference.

Thank you aswellas and saoirse86 smile

aswellasyou Mon 29-Aug-11 22:17:51

I just came on to say pretty much exactly the same as Saoirse.hmm Anyone would think we were twins or something!grin

You could buy everything except the carrycot for £381.50 with 8448 points. Then order the carrycot instore and pay using your points plus £20.52. That way it costs you £402.02 and if you go through Quidco you'll get an extra 6% cashback. smile

You can get the plush package in raspberry for £482 on if you find out you're having a girl! It's an offer where you add the stroller (which comes with changing bag and footmuff) to your basket then it asks if you want to add the carrycot for half price. And that's with the black oyster car seat and adpaters. Then if you "like" them on facebook you get a £10 discount code. The whole lot for £472! Or you could google to find better discount codes, and maybe cashback.
