CSN Stores Review and Britax Giveaway *CLOSED*



You all know just how much I adore CSN Stores. This time I didn't just get something FREE with my certificate. I bought something we really needed. 

I'm all for keeping your child Harnessed as long as possible. The state law here in 4 AND 40 pounds minimum before switching to a booster and they must be boostered until 8 OR 4'9". Avery is almost 4, but she's also only 30 pounds. So I know we have at least another year before legally switching to a booster. 

She had outgrown her Eddie Bauer 3-in-1 (stupidest purchase EVER, don't buy one) in height so I knew we needed something new fast. Britax is a great brand of seats. You may remember my last review of the Marathon 70 last year. Well they have this GREAT Harnessed Booster seat called the Frontier 85. It harnesses to 85 pounds!!!! And then becomes a booster until 120 pounds. One of the highest on the market!

So I used my $75 certificate toward the seat and paid $153 (I think). So it was a FANTASTIC Deal!!
We bought it in Onyx.
I still love their box. It is formed to the seat for less waste!!
 That's a pretty cool seat. I was tempted to get it in the Red Rock. 
Love the DOUBLE cup holders!
 It does adjust in the back, but at this age it MIGHT need to be adjusted 1-2 times a year, so it's not that big of an issue.
You just pick up on the bottom to unlock it and then lift or lower as needed.
 How the latch works. I love their EASY to use system. Especially where it is placed in my truck and the latch bars are really tucked into the seat.
 3 crotch strap adjustments.
 She loves it!!
 And so do I!!
We have the Marathon in our car and the Frontier in the truck, which I drive most often. 
I'm hoping that by the time she outgrows her Marathon we'll have bought a van by then and this can go in there. We will NEVER need to buy another seat again for her!! I'm thankful for that. 

I really love this seat (and the whole Britax brand for that matter) It was SUPER easy to install and it is the BEST installation I've ever gotten. It can move up to 1" in either direction and be installed correctly. I honestly don't think I get 1/4" in either direction with this install. 

At first I struggled because I forgot to turn the platform on the bottom. It was in the back, it needs to be in the front. Once I turned that my install was AMAZING!! It's flush against the back and it's nice and tight in there. 

The latch is simple amazing. It snaps in place and it sticks out, so when you need to remove it you simply push the red button and pull it out. I used to have to push the old lever and then twist the latch so it didn't lock back on the bar. Not anymore. 
This Britax took a 10 minute job and made it into a 2 minute job! WHICH IS AWESOME!! Anything to make a mother's job easier right?

I love CSN stores and I really encourage everyone to check them out. 
Next on our list is a Wine Rack which of course they have plenty to choose from. I LOVE this place!!

Price: The Britax Frontier 85 retails for $368. It is on sale for $224 currently. Which is AWESOME!

Overall: ********** another one of those that gets a 10 our of 5 stars! This is an amazing store and an amazing product. Couldn't be happier!

GIVEAWAYCourtesy of Britax they have offered one Mommy Of 1 and Counting reader the chance to win a Britax Frontier 85 in the color of your choice!
