Looking To Buy A Stroller For A Good Price? Try eBay
We decided on the relatively new Valco Baby Twin Runabout Trimode stroller (wow that’s a mouthful). Since the model was so new no one was selling any used ones on Craigslist. So that left us with buying a new one. Valco strollers are expensive and if you are planning to buy a new one expect to pay over $650 (including shipping) for one.
After doing several searches on the web and discovering that every online retailer is charging the same price for a Valco I decided to check out eBay.
As it turned out, a store was auctioning off the exact same model we were interested in with a starting bid of about $50 and with no reserve price. No reserve price means that there is no minimum price for winning an item on ebay. The highest bidder wins at the end of the auction regardless.
In the case of the Valco, we won the auction at $515. Thats savings of about $85. This was 8 months ago. Just a few days ago I was checking out a shopping website and discovered that these Valco Baby Twin Runabout Tri mode stroller no reserve auctions were still taking place on eBay.
So before you decide on paying the full retail price (even from another online retailer that offers free shipping) for your next baby stroller check out eBay first and maybe you’ll save too.
