Target always offers big savings on all things baby!

And while their big car seat trade-in event isn’t currently going on, you can still head over to our site for all of the best baby deals that we’re sharing ALL YEAR LONG!

What is the 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.

“Target will accept and recycle all types of car seats, including infant seats, convertible seats, car seat bases, harness or booster car seats and car seats that are expired or damaged. Materials from the old car seats will be recycled by Target’s partner, Waste Management.”

When do you think the Car Seat Trade-In Event will happen in 2020?

Last year, the Car Seat Trade-Event ran during the beginning to middle of September, which is National Baby Safety Month. So if they host this event in 2020, we are expecting it to start sometime in September again.

Fun Fact: Did you know that since the program launched, Target has recycled half a million car seats, and counting? Plus, through their trade-in programs, Target has recycled more than 11.9 million pounds of materials, and counting to date!

Here are two easy ways to score free baby goodies right now!

    Does the coupon expire tomorrow as well or just giving them the car seat ends tomorrow? Thanks in advance 🌺

      Hi there! The coupon will be valid through the 14th. 😊

    Double check prices at other stores. Target’s price for the seat we need is 20% higher than BBBaby. We may buy a BBBaby gift card at Kroger (4x fuel point digital coupon!) and do the car seat trade in at WalMart for the $30 GC.

      Thank you for the tip, cassandane!

    Would I get 2 coupons if I traded in 2 car seat ? Thanks!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes! Customer service did let me know that should work, however you can always call ahead to your location to be certain before heading in. Hope that helps!

    Walmart is giving $30 gift card for a car seat trade in starting September 16th-30th. I was about to trade in to target but decided to check other trade in programs.
