@roxy821:  Craigslist?

We got ours at REI when they were having a 20% off sale for members.  I’m not sure how often they have the sale.  We also had a gift card so it made it about the same price as the used ones I had seen on craiglist. 

I’m only 24 weeks so I can’t give you any reviews yet, but it seems awesome and I can’t wait to use it when baby boy gets here (we plan to get the infant car seat adaptor so we can use it right away).

My sister-in-law got hers on Craigslist– not sure how much she paid but she was really happy with the price. She did get a few new accessories for it (cup holder type things).

I got mine from LL Bean when they were having an online sale to compete with REI. I used that and a free shipping code, bam!

Also check baby re-sale stores. I work at one and we get Bob’s in every so often. Once upon a child, kid 2 kid are chain stores you can check.

I just have to pop in to say, the BOB is so worth the expense! It’s been are most used baby item since DS was born (3 years ago) and we’ll also use it for Dirty Delete. I’ve seen quite a few on Craigslist though.

@roxy821:  Not sure of the final cost.  I think it was listed at $399 regularly at REI.  We got the Revolution.

 

I’ll be interested to see if anyone comments about infants.  I saw on their site the 8 week recommendation, but then I have read where others have taken infants out right away just on easy walks.  I don’t see how it would be different from other strollers with car seat adaptors.

We just got a used BOB revolution stroller on kijiji for 375! It comes with the adapter and tray. Regular price here for all of that is probably close to 600. I would check websites and go to retailmenot.com for discount codes. I found lots on different sites but shipping from US to canada was not worth it! Good luck!

@roxy821:  we started using it when DS was 6 weeks with the adapter/car seat. I wish they made more adapters for different brands…we didn’t love our graco carseat so we’ll have to wait until Dirty Delete is 3 months to use the stroller without the carseat/adapter (since we bought a safety first carseat this time). Also, we still keep it in our car even though DS just turned 3, sometimes he’s asleep and it’s easier to cruise around with him in there while taking a nap.
