That's how I bought my last radian, but it was with price matched with $10 plus 20% off! It looks like they've changed it though.
I bought mine a month ago at the $239 price.

Thanks, ladies. This helps. It looks like Amazon's not going to drop the price any further, right?

Silly question - but what is the difference between the versions?

Is there a difference other than extra comfort padding? The specs for weight and height all look the same. Is it just an extra plush version?

Actually the shell is essentially the same .... with the following distinctions:

R100 weight limit is 40lbs
R120 weight limit is 45lbs and comes with infant support padding
RXT weight limit is 45lbs, comes with infant support padding, and has "head wings" for better SIP.

But in terms of how long the seat will last height wise, they are the same.
HTH!

Thanks - that makes sense. My kids are peanuts - my 2 1/2 year old is rear facing and weighs 25 lbs. My 4 1/2 year old only weighs 37 lbs. LOL So if she was rear facing she would still be in the safe zone in our R100.

TY!!

I do recommend the Radian to anyone looking. It allowed me to keep my car when we had 3 kids (instead of getting a bigger car to fit car seats) - and it allowed me to be able to keep my kids in car seats longer. A lot of people I know go to the booster seat at 4 and I was able to keep all three of them five point harnessed past that.

See, I know this is silly, but ebay makes me nervous... how do I know it's not a second hand seat? Like I said, silly but still...

We got ours from Just Kids Store for a good price. And they had super quick shipping!
