We’re big fans of Britax and have been for over a decade. Our first Britax purchase was a Cheetah print Roundabout in 2002. My oldest son (now 10 1/2) transitioned from his infant car seat to the Roundabout, in the rear-facing position, at 6-months-old and sat in a Britax seat for the next eight years – in a Roundabout, Marathon, Regent and finally a Parkway before he was old enough and big enough to use the vehicle safety belt.
So when I first learned about the Britax Registry Reward Program early last year, my initial thought was, “and why wasn’t this program around sometime in the past 10 years?!” Well, I already know the answer to that – it’s because Britax has grown and evolved so much over the past decade. While 10 years ago it was all about car seats, now they have just about everything you could need or want to get up and go with your baby in tow. And now that I’m taking inventory of what we have and what we need for the new baby, the Britax Registry Rewards Program has my full attention.
New and expectant parents may earn an extra registry gift from Britax – a Britax Boulevard 70-G3 Convertible Car Seat ($320 value) when they buy one designated Britax or BOB item from each of five baby gear categories on the Britax New Parent Checklist.
THE NEW PARENT CHECKLIST
The New Parent Checklist has you and your baby covered for years to come. Just purchase one item from each category: Stroller, Car Seat, Carrier, Large Accessory and Small Accessory, save your UPC codes from the box and ta-dah! You get your Boulevard 70-G3 Convertible Car Seat as your reward – for free!
For expectant parents, this program is like gold. Simply pick and get your stroller, infant car seat, carrier and any accessories you want – which is all the gear and stuff you’ll need anyway – and you have your convertible car seat ready and waiting for when the time is right to transition your baby out of the infant car seat. For new parents who might already have their infant car seat and stroller, I would say go with a convertible car seat and the BOB all-terrain stroller – and then get your second convertible car seat for free. We have a convertible car seat, for each child, in each of our cars (one of them is a Britax Boulevard 70-G3) and an all-terrain stroller in addition to our everyday stroller – and we use them all.
REDEMING YOUR REWARD
It doesn’t matter if you purchase the qualifying items yourself or receive them as a gift. To participate in the Rewards Program, just mail in the five UPC barcodes (found on each new product’s box) and complete a redemption form. More information about the redemption steps can be found on britaxusa.com.
ABOUT THE BRITAX BOULEVARD 70-G3
The Britax Boulevard 70-G3 achieves revolutionary safety through the use of Britax SafeCell Technology in the base of the seat, new HUGS with SafeCell Technology, integrated steel bars, side impact protection and an energy-absorbing Versa-Tether. With Britax, it’s 360 degrees of protection and safety you can see!
These safety features work together to minimize the forward movement of a child’s head during a crash. The Boulevard 70-G3 offers a five-point, no-rethread harness, a quick-adjust head restraint and harness and multiple buckle and recline adjustments. The Boulevard 70-G3 accommodates children between 5 and 40 pounds rear facing, and up to 70 pounds forward facing. The Boulevard 70-G3 is available in a variety of fashions with a suggested retail price of $319.99.
