Well we ordered it because we thought heck these car seats are usually over $200. I told several friends about it so they could buy one too. Then I get this email from

We were so very bummed! I was so looking forward to having another car seat to use in the other car and now we won't have one. UGH!

OH my goodness! It seems like they should honor it since they had it posted at their website! Walmart will honor a price..even if it is wrong! What a bummer!!

I'm with was Target's mistake...they should have honored the orders they had and ate the money they lost. I'm sure they make up for the difference in other things. Ugh. Bummer :(

I was so very bummed as well. For a few hours, I felt like I'd won the lottery with that price.
