    Default 60% off or a pram I actually like???

    What would you do?

    A friend of DH's works for mountain buggy/phil and teds and can get 60% off any pram for us. Problem is I don't like any of them....

    BUT, I cannot stand spending $700+ on a pram, to me it just seems so wasteful.

    If I bought a pram from him for 60% off the price, I would have to keep it as we see him quite regularly so I couldn't just get it, sell it and buy a pram I like.......but if I don't accept his offer, i'll probably end up spending $400 on a pram that I do really like...and $400 is such a lot of money!

    I don't know what to do.....

    personally i would take him up on the offer, if you dont get a pram you like you are more likely to go out and by pram after pram until you do find one. (well i did anyway)

    so i would take your friend up on the offer, plus they are just better lol

    I would never have a pram I didn't like. My prams reflect my personality and also have to function the way I want them to.

    I don't think $400 is much to spend at all for a good pram.

    It depends on how you are financially.

    If spending $400 on a pram that you actually do like is within your means, and you wouldn't have to make sacrifices in order to pay for it, then I would go for it. A pram is something you will be using on almost a daily basis and you need to be happy with it.

    That being said, if your family would have to go without (less money for food/bills etc) in order to buy a pram you like then I think you should take him up on his offer.

    Good luck with your decision!

    Have you tried www.pramwarehouse.com.au? They have loads of baby stuff for heaps less than retail price - and it's all brand new. I really liked a pram that was nearly $900 and they had it for $650 - and delivery was only $20. Worth a look anyway! Good luck!

    I wouldn't if you don't like it. 60% off something you don't really want or need is moot. I'm sure I could get 60% off something totally irrelevant to my life but it's pretty pointless.

    Maybe ask him if he'd mind if you bought one with the intention to sell, otherwise just save your pennies and get something you really like

    Well, we aren't rolling in cash,if I spend $400 say on a pram, I will have to spend less on the cot and other stuff. All up I have about $1000 to spend on pram, cot,mattress, sheets etc.

    4 wheelers with not too small wheels and with reversible handlebars so I can either have baby facing away from me or toward me. Im so not a fan of the 3 wheelers, they just aren't me for some reason....

    I sound picky don't I...

    What benji said. Even at 60% off; if you don't like it, it's a waste of $X. Buy the pram you really want.
