Target’s Car Seat Trade-In Event: 20% Off New Car Seat When You Trade Used One (Starts 4/17)

Hip2Save may earn a small commission via affiliate links in this post. Read our full disclosure policy here.

Starting April 17th and running through April 30th, Target is hosting a Car Seat Trade-in Event. Simply bring in any used car seat to your local Target store and trade it in for a coupon good for 20% off any car seat in store or at Target.com. This 20% off coupon will be valid through May 31st. For more information, head over here.

What happens to all those car seats they collect?

Target is teaming up with TerraCycle to make sure they get recycled, or upcycled into new products. Through the partnership, they expect to keep more than 700,000 pounds of car seat materials out of landfills.

    โค this! Thanks for the info

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re welcome!

    I wonder if I can stack my 15% registry coupon as well… :/

    • Jackie

      I was wondering this too!

    • DealGetterRN

      I’m guessing you can- not sure tho ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ
      I know we stacked our clearance stroller with a cartwheel & our completion discount on our red card ๐Ÿ˜

    I’m so happy to see the Target will actually recycle the expired seat. It’s my pet peeve of BrU that the old seats just go in the dumpster when so much can be recycled or reused!! Hopefully, target will soon give the 20% off on other baby gear. We have 2 old seats and need/want a new stroller! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • JA

      Terracycle is a really great company. They recycle things that you typically wouldn’t think could be recycled. I think this is awesome! I hope a lot of people take advantage of it!

      • Cassandane

        Love Terracycle! I have a huge box of plastic diaper & wipe bags ready to send in for recycling ๐Ÿ™‚

    Do you know the brand/name of the carseat pictured on the lower left? Thanks!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Hi there! Is THIS the one you are looking for? It is a Baby Trend Snap Gear Infant Car Seat. Hope this helps!

      • Jennifer

        It is! Thank you so much!!

        • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

          Awesome! You’re so welcome! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Amy

    Does anyone know if this coupon can stack with seats on sale or is it only regular price?

  6. Jamie

    Does this work on bases too?

  7. Kitty

    Does this happen every year?

  8. Chris

    Wonder if Target will raise their car seat prices back to regular price during the sale? Babies R Us does…very frustrating!

    • Ailar

      Yeah – i wonder the same thing? Anyone knows the answer? Will it make sense to go through this trouble if at the end you don’t get a good deal on carseat?

  9. Marissa

    omg, when did they start doing this?! I would’ve done theirs instead of toys r us ๐Ÿ™

  10. sydneyb

    Very timely post. I don’t need a carseat, but I’ve been looking for a place to recycle an old one.

    • Katie

      Def offer it around on a local tag sale or mom’s group – there’s probably someone there who will happily recycle it and also be able to use the discount! ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Caitlin

    I use my monthly bed bath and beyond 20% off coupons to buy car seats, etc. already on sale at buy buy baby, just an idea if they have a better price than target

  12. Alaina

    Are all targets participating? Just curious if there is a way to find out.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      It appears that it will be at all stores. You can always call ahead to your store to be sure, starting April 17th. Hope this helps!

      • Megan

        I called and both stores in my area told me they had no information on the event. They thought I was lying

        • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

          Maybe wait and check again closer to the 17th.

  13. Rita

    Can the discount be used online?

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Yes! Can be used in store or online, good through May 31st. ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Faye

    Does anyone have a coupon or the code that you won’t be using. I need to purchase 2 car seats online.
