WHY IT'S AN INVESTMENTYes, the Doona is quite a pricey car seat however it's worth it to purchase it new because then you are fully covered under warranty from Doona. A brand new Doona bought from a reputable retailer comes with a 2 year warranty so you know that you are covered no matter where life takes you. Doona really stands behind their warranty and their products, so you are in good hands. When you purchase it new, you also don't need worry where the car seat has been before you purchased it. Who wants to wonder about germs?
MAP PROTECTED & WHAT THAT MEANS
If you've been shopping around for Doona and wondering why everyone's prices are the same it is because Doona is MAP protected so it's not easy to find a good deal on it. MAP stands for minimum advertised pricing and pretty much means the brand sets the lowest price a retailer can advertise the product for sale. MAP protection makes it a little harder to be able to find good deals on the coveted Doona but there are still ways to get a Doona at a cheaper price point.
TIPS ON GETTING A DEAL ON YOUR DOONA
1. Two words: BLACK FRIDAY. Black friday is a great way to find deals and savings. Be sure to follow us on Instagram or sign up for our emails to stay in the loop, especially that time of the year. The Doona usually does not go down in price, but there can be a gift-with-purchase offer which makes the price easier to swallow.
2. When Doona discontinues a fabric, it will usually go off MAP a few months later. Be sure to watch out for deals on these fashions that include free gifts with a purchase or a lower price point.
3. Check out our Open Box section on our website to see if there are any recent returns that we have to sell as an open box. These car seats are unused and fully covered under the warranty but they may have the box opened or some packaging missing.
