    Default Baby store sales

    Does anyone know when the biggest sales are on? Wanting to purchase some new stuff for baby number two and not sure whether to wait a bit longer, as warranties start from the day you buy the product... My local stores have a sale on at the moment that ends tomorrow. Weird timing considering it's the end of financial year soon. So I was wondering if there is usually a massive sale for EOFY?

    Baby Bunting have a sale on now, check their website. We got our car seat on lay by at $120 off. Have settled on a pram but feel like I've seen it on sale sporadically anyway so won't rush to get that yet.

    David Jones also have a big sale on, 15% off prams and car seats etc and lots of different discounts on baby clothing and nursery stuff.

    It's definitely a good time of year to be buying because next guaranteed big sales are usually after Christmas and I'm due November so that won't work for me. It helps if you've been doing some price checking before now to know whether something is really on special sale or if they drop the price regularly.

    PS Baby's r us price beat by 10% apparently, so get a price from Baby Bunting and see if they'll beat it!

    Edit: Did I mention I'm a bit of a bargain hunter?? 😂

    Default Baby store sales

    Baby Kingdom have a 21st birthday sale that goes until 3rd July (I actually thought it went until end of fin year so I'm cheering because NT is 1st of July) and they have anywhere between 15-30% off pretty much everything. Most things being 21% off.

    They also do an even better price when you package items up which is good if you buy most things from one store and the Alexandria store is huge and has pretty much everything you could want.

    We went there with some friends when they were looking and there was a guy Robbie who took us through the whole store and was so helpful. We will be going back on the 2nd of July (after our NT) to put everything we want on layby because it locks in the sale price.

    The friends we went with put everything on layby but sadly lost their bub at 17 weeks and they gave them a full refund of their deposit and even sat him down with a glass of water while they sorted it all out which was caring as he understandably wasn't coping well. It's good to know they have compassion because a lot of stores don't do that.

    Oh and they also price beat haha. Can you tell I'm a fan of this shop?!

    The warranties start when you pick it up. So if you can layby, do it! I bought my pram early on sale but then put it on layby at the suggestion of the shop assistant, so the warranty didn't start until much later.

    Baby bunting will price match a cheaper price found online in Australia. So if you find something online $200 cheaper you just show them the website when you purchase/layby and they will match it.

    Eofy sale are no diff then other sales it just a way for business's to clear out stock for the upcoming tax season and obviously boost sales. If you compare catalogues each time from the same business they are pretty much identical apart from maybe a few new lines

    Thanks everyone, I knew there'd be a wealth of knowledge here!! The fact the Baby Kingdom sale goes until the 3rd July makes me feel heaps better, I've more time to research and made a decision now. I think a lot of stores price match so I should be able to pay the same price at my local until the 3rd

    Thanks again
