Where can I find cheap infant car seats?

My baby is due in 23 days, and I have not had the funds to get a seat. I have not yet called the car seat program here in SoCal because I want to be able to choose mine. I know that there are a few sites, I just can't remember them. Please help!

Ask your hospital. Ours will let you purchase one from them if you don't have one.

you could try craigslist but I would never get a car seat second hand as you can't guarantee their condition unless it is someone you know personally. You don't know if it's been in an accident, expired. You can get a Graco Snugride for around $60. That's just the seat, not the travel system.It's a good price for a safe seat.

Between $50-$80 in Graco. I would prefer to use my stoller to make it a travel system, but if not I'm cool with that too.

You can get infants seats at Walmart or Kmart for $40 and up.

I can't find one for 60!! They all run like 79.99 or more but that is online, I haven't really checked in stores.

i'm sure it's not like this everywhere, but the k-mart around here had a bigger selection than walmart... but they are both cheaper than going to other stores.
