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 1.97 million car seats and over 29.6 million pounds of car seat materials!

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

    Thank you! I missed the last one and the foam cracked when I moved our extra one, so this is exactly what I need

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      YAY! Happy to hear that this is popping up at the right time for you, Gscribble! 🤗

  2. stephanietaylor

    We did this last time for our baby girl who was born in February! We got a $150 Car seat for just under $70! It was on sale, we got the 20% off and the extra 5% from our redcard

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      WOW! Awesome deal! Thanks for sharing! 💗

  3. Caroline

    Does anyone know if you can combine a baby registry discount with this deal?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey there! I did speak with customer service and they let me know that will work for you! 🎉❤️

      • Caroline

        Thank you SO MUCH! Super excited and will be sure to wait to buy the seat until this deal!

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          You’re so welcome, Caroline! Glad to help! 💖🥰

    • DealGetterRN

      was a few years ago but we did!!!

  4. Michelle

    Would I be able to use the coupon on a backless booster seat?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Michelle! I just spoke with customer service and they were not able to confirm that for me as the coupon details are not yet available, however I believe it did work for those in past years. Hoping this is helpful! 🤗

  5. Elizabeth

    Does anyone know if Pack and plays are one of the pieces of that you can use the coupon on?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey there! When I spoke with customer service, they had very limited information on what the offer details will be. They did suggest checking back when this is available! Hoping that helps! 🥰

    • Carolyn

      Hi! I checked in the app after my trading my car seat in today. Some of the pack and plays are eligible and some are not! Not sure how they decided, but the Cosco brand one at my store was not eligible for the trade-in

  6. Josie

    Does any one know fi this works on the Mockingbird stroller?

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey Josie! I did find this in their FAQ – “Guests who trade in their old car seats will receive a 20% off coupon toward a new car seat, car seat base, travel system, stroller or select baby home gear. Select baby home gear includes playards, high chairs, swings, rockers, bouncers, walkers, entertainers and jumpers.” Hoping that it would include the stroller that you’re wanting to score, but you might call your nearest location before making a trip to be sure! 💗

    • Carolyn

      Yes! I just purchased today with my trade in!

  7. Cindy Craig

    Is this available at all Target stores?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes! I did find the details on that – “All stores, with the exception of select small format stores, are participating. Contact your local store for more info.”

  8. Carolyn

    Anyone have an idea if the car seats on sale will change next week? Have my eye on a Chico MyFit, and wondering if there is any chance it may go on sale in addition to the trade in?

    • Gscribble

      I have the same question! I want the Chicco high back booster!

      • Stacy F (Hip2Save Sidekick)

        There is definitely a good chance they will change. Next week’s ad usually comes out for preview on Friday so I’d check back then.

  9. Kate

    If anyone doesn’t need the second use of their discount please consider passing it my way. I’m taking in two little girls under 2 and will be purchasing car seats soon. kdanehy@hotmail.com (apologies and please delete if this comment isn’t allowed)

  10. Stephanie

    If anyone has an extra 20% coupon they won’t be using I would love it! I need a booster for my son. Sportsmom1313@yahoo.com –Thank you so much!!
