Tax-free weekend savings, Aug. 10-11: Get your Baby Jogger City Select this weekend

When Jill, a guest reviewer on The Stroller Girl blog, discovered that her second baby was arriving swiftly on the heels of her first, finding the right double stroller was priority #1:

“When discussing strollers, particularly double strollers, it is appropriate to realize that the better the stroller, the less overwhelming two babies can feel. When it comes to transportation, getting around, having an active lifestyle, and feeling like I’m not trapped in my house, finding a good stroller was priority number one. This is exaggerated by the fact that my husband is in the military and gone a good portion of the time. I am outnumbered and needed the comfort of a high quality stroller.”

Her review of the Baby Jogger City Select stroller enumerates the virtues that make it a favorite for parents of two, including:

  • cityselectconfigurationsNo less than 16 possible unique seat / bassinet / car seat configurations;
  • A “polite” footprint for a double stroller, making the City Select easy to use in stores and on sidewalks without antagonizing passersby;
  • Excellent maneuvering for a tandem stroller, with swiveling front wheels;
  • A nice smooth ride for little passengers, with forever-air tires and front-wheel suspension;
  • A HUGE, easy to access basket, accessible from multiple sides, so no seating configuration fully blocks it off;
  • A telescoping adjustable handlebar;
  • Baby Jogger Quick-Fold Technology;

…and much more! But of course, if you’re reading this, you’re probably already considering a City Select to accommodate your growing family. This blog is about why you should buy your City Select and all the trimmings this weekend – because you can get it tax-free! This weekend, August 10-11, all Massachusetts purchases are exempt from the 6.25% sales tax, so it’s the perfect time to shop and save.

The City Select is a great single stroller (one of its most celebrated virtues is the ability to convert BACK to a single when your older child no longer needs a stroller), but it really shines as a double. So we’re going to concentrate on the accessories you’ll need to get the most out of your City Select as a double for kids of two different ages, with an infant and a toddler. You’ll be starting out with:

  • City Select Stroller: $499.99
  • City Select Universal Adapter: $59.99
  • Chicco Keyfit 30 Infant Car Seat: $189.99 (of course, you can get any seat you like since the Universal Adapter goes with everything, but we’re using the Keyfit as an example since it’s so popular)

Total Tax-Free Weekend Savings: $31 + $4 + $12 = $47

That’s enough to get your toddler passenger a Snack Tray ($19.99) and a Belly Bar ($24.99). But of course, you’re going to need two of those, since your infant will need them as she grows, and you’ll want a few other things too. So let’s look at how the add-ons to fully equip your City Select stack up:

  • City Select Second Seat: $169.99
  • City Select Rain Cover: $39.99 x 2 (one for each seat)
  • City Select Belly Bar: $24.99 x 2
  • City Select Snack Tray: $19.99 x 2
  • City Select Carry Bag: $59.99

The total tax savings on this treasure trove of accessories is $26 – almost enough to get your Baby Jogger Universal Parent Console ($29.99). Or, your total tax savings on your entire City Select package is $73. There are a lot of nice things you can get with those savings:

Skip Hop Treetop Friends Activity Gym ($74.99)

Phil & Teds Lobster High Chair ($79.99)

Boba Air Lightweight Baby Carrier ($64.99)

Skip Hop Via Messenger Diaper Bag ($79.99)
