The stroller I want (Britax B-Agile in kiwi) just came out, it’s on Amazon, but not on Babies R Us or Target yet.
Right now, I can get it for $212 on Amazon. Retail price is $250.
I’m really torn if I should wait or get it now. I can’t even add it to my registry because the stores I’m registered at haven’t listed it yet. (My shower is June 17.) Do you think anybody would even buy us a $250 stroller?

We’re getting the B-Agile as well! I’m so excited for it! I wouldn’t doubt that some people may go in on a big item, like a stroller. At the same time, if you really want the stroller in that color and can get a good deal on it, I’d say go ahead and buy it and take the other one off your registry. If you’re like me, and I’m assuming most people, there will be plenty you’ll need to buy off your registry after the fact – probably more than the $212 you’d spend on the stroller – and those who would maybe have gotten you the stroller can get you something else off your registry or maybe even give you gift cards. Unless you have very few things on your registry, I’d go ahead and get the stroller. And now you have me interested in what the kiwi color looks like. 🙂

When is your shower? And when will they be having it in stores?
If the stores will be carrying it before your shower then I would wait and put it on your registry. If someone doesn’t buy it then you can always purchase it after the shower and I’m sure people will give you money and gift cards.

Could you buy it and just return it if you get one for your shower? As for someone buying a $250 stroller, it depends on your family but I’d say definitely! I’ve found that close family members have no problem splurging when it comes to the first baby. My BIL/SIL got EVERYTHING that they registered for between both families. A $250 stroller would be a good aunt/uncle gift in my family.

And now I’m hooked on the Britax line of strollers. Thanks! lol
To answer your question I say buy and return if you get it at the shower.

Just as an FYI, I have now gone ahead and bought my stroller from Amazon because it was $70 cheaper than my registry. Totally unplanned but Darling Husband and I both were in agreement that we should just get it and if we get another one at the shower, we’ll return that and use it to fulfill our registry or for formula, diapers, etc after baby comes. Never would have happened if I didn’t read this thread. 🙂

I’d wait. I was shocked at the sorts of big items people got for us at our shower. It was pretty insane.

I am actually registering on Amazon because I realized everything I was registering for at BabiesRUs was so much cheaper on Amazon! Highly reccomend it. Also, I am registering for the Britax B-Agile Travel System, it is a great deal for the stroller and car seat.

I would go ahead and buy it if it’s one you really want. If you’re registering, most people should buy what’s on the registry. If you happen to get a stroller at your shower, you can always return it for store credit.

I would wait. I was surprised at the things people brought us. We only brought our baby’s bedding and the grandparents brought pretty much everything else.
