Target's Car Seat Trade-In Deal Is Back, But Only Until September 22nd

If you’re looking to upgrade your child’s car seat in the next few days look no further than Target. Their popular car seat trade-in deal is back this fall, and it runs from September 9th to September 22nd.

Target will take your old child safety seat (no matter its condition) in return for a 20% off coupon. If your child is outgrowing their seat and it’s time for a new one, you can take it in. Even if you have a car seat that’s been collecting dust, Target will take it off your hands.

The store will accept infant car seats, convertible seats, car seat bases, booster car seats, and expired or even damaged car seats. They’ll accept any brand regardless of where it was purchased.

You can use the coupon on a wide variety of items that your baby may need. The discount can be applied to a new car seat, booster seat, car seat base, a stroller, or a new travel system. If you don’t need any of those items this year, Target is giving parents more options. Customers can use the coupon on select baby gear that can be purchased at the store – this includes high chairs, swings, rockers, and bouncers

You can bring the car seat to guest services, just look for the drop-off boxes for the unwanted car seats, and you can pick up your coupon in-store at the same time. But, beware! You’ll have to use the discount before October 6th, 2018, or the coupon will expire. It can be used in-store or for an online purchase.

So why would Target take any baby seat? Even old expired seats? The retail giant is teaming up with Waste Management to recycle car seat materials. Your baby’s old seat will eventually be turned into a new product. Part of your old car seat might be turned into pallets, plastic buckets, or construction material.

The Target car seat trade-in program started back in 2016 and according to the company, more than 300,000 car seats have been dropped off since the start, helping recycle 4.6 million pounds of material.

Before you upgrade your seat, make sure you read up on the AAP's newest car seat recommendation. If you're ready to upgrade, this could be a great deal to take advantage of or an excellent way to clean out baby gear you don’t need any more while helping the environment.
