I saw this healthy looking sarracenia at Lowes, and i thought i should give the plant a real home, so i bought it. Here it is:

Congrats on your new sarr! :)
My brother (who is 8 and is about to be 9 on the 28th) just got the same sarracenia as you at Homebase (type of Lowes in England) on Sunday 19th nut it looks like yours has bigger pitchers and is much more healthier! :lol:

Nice plants. Other than needing more sun, they look very healthy. It looks to me like S. x cobra nest. Although they do grow well with less sun than others, if you want them a nice velvet red, grow them in full sun. Just make sure to acclimate.
