Can anyone beat the price i've found for the oyster?
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?
we are all good,but ive mainly been stuck in due to a major lack of buggy 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 brilliant
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!
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?
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
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!
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.
I just came on to say pretty much exactly the same as Saoirse. Anyone would think we were twins or something!
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.
You can get the plush package in raspberry for £482 on preciouslittleone.com 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.
