CSN: review & giveaway

REVIEW

my january review for CSN turned into a march review, whoops! 
i have good reason though & here's why:

i had some amazing options lined up to review, i was pretty much set on some quirky indoor or outdoor lighting i showed you in december, but then i learned of baby #2 and buying frivolously just didn't seem like a good idea anymore. babies are many things, but cheap isn't one of them. so i switched gears and CSN was kind & generous enough to send me the Safety First "Air" car seat. it's a forward facing car seat and their are laws against using it before your baby is one year old & twenty pounds in weight. so it sat in the box for a few weeks and now, Hayes is 22+ pounds and one year old next week.
i figured a week early would be kosher.

sidenote: can you believe he's almost ONE YEAR OLD?

i have nothing but good things to say about the car seat & Hayes is loving it too. what i was completely surprised to see was that CSN's prices were cheaper then any i could find on my old go-to amazon.com.
i can only compare CSN to Amazon because it's really the only thing close, 
you can find anything & everything there.
on top of the cheaper car seat price (by about $20) CSN had free shipping, while Amazon did not. CSN's price for the same car seat is about $40 less when all is said and done. 

their site is easy to navigate, & signing up as a member has resulted in great e-mail coupons like 20% of your entire purchase, etc. 

GIVEAWAY

to give you a chance to see how great CSN really is, they're offering one reader $50 to any one of their 200 section shop. i'd tell you to tell me your pick in the comments, but i fear you wouldn't be back until 2012 - the possibilities are endless. 

just leave a comment (one for each entry, please)
you can get extra entries for following or subscribing to Ruffling Feathers & tweeting, facebooking or blogging about the giveaway.

the giveaway closes Monday March 7th at 11:59 MST & the winner will be announced March 8th.

This car seat was our final answer in our search for the perfect forward facing. It's sleek, and dash loves it.
