Hold onto those car seats! The can’t-miss Target car seat trade-in event returns in 2024.

Have you heard of the super popular Car Seat Trade-In Event at Target? Instead of September this year, the event will return in April of 2024, and here’s everything you need to know!

You can conveniently recycle an old, expired, or damaged car seat AND in return, you’ll score a 20% off one car seat, stroller, or select baby gear item Target Circle offer! 🎉

This year’s event already took place and Cam was there to explain all the perks:

If you’d like to participate in April 2024, hold onto your car seat a little longer.

To score the 20% coupon, all you will need to do is head in-store during the event with your undesired car seat and look for the giant recycling box like the ones pictured. Discard your seat and scan the barcode on the sign with your phone to load the 20% off Circle offer to your account. Easy peasy!

If anything should change with this process for 2024, we’ll be sure to update you prior to the event!

Note that a Target Circle account (free to join) is required to take advantage of the 20% Circle discount. If you don’t already have one set up, be sure to take a minute to make one so you’re ready come the event.

Car Seat, Stroller and shopping cart at Target

Use the 20% off discount immediately in-store and online. It’s usually also valid for a couple of weeks after the event ends. Last year, the offer was able to be redeemed TWO times!

Even sweeter, you can take advantage of this discount and use it on car seats, strollers, or other baby gear even if they are already on sale! Plan to stack the sale prices with your 20% off Target Car Seat Trade-In Event coupon for BIG savings! This is seriously the best time to trade in your old car seat and save on the next seat that your baby or kiddo needs!

Hip tip: For even more savings, stack this 20% discount with your Target RedCard discount. 💵

What is the Target Car Seat Trade-in Event?

Target was the first retailer to start the car seat trade-in trend back in 2016, and lucky for Target shoppers – when you bring in an old or expired car seat to Guest Services during set dates, you’ll receive a 20% OFF coupon to redeem on a future purchase of a new car seat, stroller or other select baby gear.

Since the program launched, Target has recycled over 2 million car seats and over 32.9 million pounds of car seat materials!

Here are a few more easy ways to score even more baby goodies!
