Topic Wiki

I am trying to put a list together of the pro's and cons of the main bassinet strollers:

UppaBaby (UB)
PRO:
so easy to push
great basket (HUGE)
the bassinet is easy to take on and off
the wheels are easy to remove if need be
folds in a sinch
handle bar is great for tall and short people
the rumble seat lets the kid sit like a human being (not slide down)
the break is easy to push and doesnt break easily
the lay back position is great for kids who need to sleep on the go
the sun visor is a life savor
option to use with car seat (need to purchase the adapter)
fantastic customer service

con:
its wide but still easy to push
it can be heavy for some
the lock to close the stroller (it broke on mine)

Where is the cheapest place to but a bugaboo bee? I see it as $600 sold by amazon. Do they have a 20% off discount?
Where else is it cheap?
BBB with 20% off

I got the previous years UBV and it's fantastic.  The only difference was like color options but that's insignificant to me.

I have a stupid question, how does one go about BBB with 20% off? I know many brands don't qualify for a 20% off so how do I go about using it for a car seat?

Add item to bed bath registry.
Walk into store.
Have them print registry.
Point to item you want and have over coupon.
Pay for item and be sure to get free shipping as it's on a registry.

Just did it yesterday.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

or what i do. Its a bit more out of the way. Go in buy it. Bring back recipt with 20% and say i never got it from the product i was told to come back with coupons if i forgot them originally. They usually not looking at the product written. Only if its i from of them it makes more of an impression. If its just the receipt they would not realize.

I did this with my UBV (the first 20% off )7

You're talking about price matching and getting the 20% off.

Im confused, I thought they don't have strollers in stock in the stores. You first buy online and then bring receipt in to store?

I live in Chicago and I was not aware they stocked any baby items. I will call the store and find out. Thanks for your help.

I'm going to be taking my first trip with the little one.

Is it worth getting the UPPAbaby® Vista Travel Bag?

I see it for 89.99 on BBB and Amazon.

Whats you your opinion on it?

I have no patience to be busy going to BBB and fighting with them if I don't have to.

IIRC, you have a broken stroller now ;)

Get a generic bag. Works just as well and fraction of price.
It's not about the quantity of your posts.  It's about the quality.
