Let’s face it, being a parent is not easy, or cheap.
Your parenting to-do’s are exhausting and the must-have goods list is long and expensive. Each November, parents have a great opportunity to save a lot of money and time when shopping for larger items for their young children. Cyber Monday and Black Friday shopping, specifically online, is a time-honored holiday tradition for many Americans, and retailers know that big bargains bring in shoppers.
One of the most expensive (and important) items new parents need is a travel system. A travel system is a set of equipment that transports an infant from riding in a car to moving around from place to place. A travel system typically includes an infant carrier car seat, a separate base for the car and a stroller which can be used in combination with the carrier seat, or as a stand-alone stroller.
Parents love these items because they allow them to transport a sleeping baby without ever having to disturb the child to move from one place to the next. The downside of the travel system is price. Because this equipment needs to be safe, comfortable and easy to use, manufacturers often establish higher price points.
But back to Cyber Monday and Black Friday— this is the best time to find great bargains on travel systems and the biggest shopping day of the year! Retailers large and small offer incredible deals for baby items, and if you’re in the market for a travel system, this is the time to buy. But don’t drive from store to store in search of the best deal, just fire up your smartphone or computer because all these deals can be found online!
Here are some of the best deals we found in 2016 on travel systems in a wide range of styles, features and price points:

Remember: each family and child have different priorities and needs when searching for the perfect travel system. Size and weight of the stroller are very important for function and storage, and safety ratings for the car seats are high priorities for all shoppers, but we have found that there’s a travel system for every budget, and both Cyber Monday and Black Friday mean great opportunities for a bargain. Shoppers can get an upgraded travel system for their budget, or save money by buying their chosen system at a discounted price.
And even better, all of these systems can be purchased from home with the touch of a button. Many online retailers offer free shipping on Cyber Monday and Black Friday, so you don’t even have to go to the store and find a way to get those large boxes in your vehicle! Online shopping for travel systems is quick and easy and it allows you to compare features and prices from home. Be sure to find the best deals and features when shopping for this important part of your baby equipment needs!
