Target is having a truly amazing sale on the Britax Marathon car seats - $60 each ($280 is their normal price). These are apparently the old style seats, which work for up to 33lbs rear-facing instead of 35lbs.

Just thought I'd pass it on in case any of you are in the market.

(ETA: Wow, this one is $42.99!)

(I ended up buying one even though we're pretty happy with our current seat a Graco ComfortSport. Based on my 5 1/2 year old's measurements, it should work for us until she is six or nearly so, eliminating the need for a high-back booster.)

ETA2: According to thystle: A friend of mine just posted this: "i just got off the phone with target. the price was an error. the people in charge are discussing the situation now and no decision has yet been reached about whether or not they will honor the price. we should all get an email in the next couple days."

I checked the website, and both models are now listed as out of stock.

Does anyone know if these are legal in the UK? I know its a weird question, but I REALLY want a seat with one of those clips by the chest. NONE of the UK seats have that. :(

If they are, I would seriously consider importing one, if I could figure out how to get it shipped here!

I don't know about the UK...I'm in Australia and I wanted to bring back a Britax to use here but was told by a child safety person here that it wouldn't legally be okay? Different safety standards. But the maximum rear facing weight for car seats here is only 12 kgs. so that is kind of disappointing. Anyway, all this to say that I don't know but I understand wanting to import one!!

Oh my gosh, thank you!! I'm taking my kids to visit my family in the US in February and was planning to buy a car seat to use while there. THis is perfect.
