UPDATE: just heard from Bugaboo's publicist, who informs me the Frog is NOT being discontinued--it's just an even better value than before! I'll be looking into how this "Frog discontinued!" rumor got started. Stay tuned.
Last November, after word leaked that Bugaboo would be discontinuing the original Frog in "early 2009,' I predicted Frogs would go on sale sometime "in the near future."
Well guess what, the future--and early 2009--are right now, baby. Just as the clocks hit midnight, the price of a new Frog dropped from $759 to $629. [Actually, I saw a few Amazon retailers had already marked it down at 11:55pm. Oooh, trouble.]
So I wonder what'd happen at Right Start, where strollers are already marked down 20-30% or more. Could you get them to give you their discount on top of Bugaboo's own markdown? I await your haggling war stories.
