Update!!!

So one of you ladies told me about the online coupon for for $10 off every $50 dollars you spend. Unfortunately I didn't know about it so I didn't use it when I placed my order. But after I was told about it I called Babies R Us and they said that when I got the stroller to bring in the packing slip and they would refund me the $90 for the coupon.

Well it came today and I took my slip down there and guess what happened...?! The lady doing my refund told me my stroller was now on clearance and instead of getting back $90, I got back $232! So that means I ended up only paying $246 for the triple stroller, extra seat and parent organizer. So I pretty much got back HALF of the original cost! Yessss!


Our youngest is only 9 months old and we are expecting twins in July. So I really needed a triple stroller. I searched ... and searched... and searched online for a decent priced stroller that would fit our needs and I kept coming back to the Joovy Big Caboose Tandem Triple stroller. It was expensive but there were others that were 3x as much. You can NOT find a "cheap" triple stroller. Period. They used to make a Baby Trend version that was around $200 but that is off the market now. Boo.

So I decided if I couldn't find something cheaper than the Joovy OR a used one for a decent price that I just would not get it and just figure something else out. But the fact is... there is no choice. I am going to NEED a triple stroller. I am not a baby wearer. I just don't like it and it's uncomfortable because I have back problems.

So yeah... I did it. I broke down and ordered the Joovy from Babies R Us. The actual stroller was $349. The rear seat was $69. And the parent organizer was $25. Plus tax. Holy shit. I could literally puke. I swear I was actually sick to my stomach when I hit "submit order."

This is what I'm getting for my $478....

$478 is not bad triple stroller, but this one looks really uncomfortable.

Did you just delete your first comment and then post this one? You are putting way too much time and effort into bashing my stroller purchase. lol

That's a great purchase. We had two boys 18 months apart and then 18months later twins. We bought one simular to this and used it daily. (We went to the zoo a lot, walked to the library, walked to the store, the children's museum, and mall). I thank god for that stroller. Especially since 11 months after the twins were born we had our youngest boy. (1st baby was planned, second one was minipill, twins I was on depo, after them I got my tubes tied and the last pregnancy happened. talk about fucking BC fails!

Did you try ebay and craigslist? Also call your local consignment/resale kids stores and ask if they can keep a heads up for you.
