Car Seat Trade

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 1.7 million car seats and over 25.4 million pounds of car seat materials!

    Does anybody know if you can use the coupon toward a booster seat? Tia

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      In previous years, YES you could. I haven’t seen the coupon this year so I can’t verify it will work.

  2. Debbie scholl

    Can you only take them in on these dates or can you take anytime

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      They only take them twice a year during these events.🤗

  3. Rebecca mitchell

    Can I RECEIVE AN EMAIL WHEN THE CAR SEAT TRADE IN WILL TAKE PLACE?

  4. Chris

    Is this considered a great way to get a deal on a new car seat? Is it better to watch for normal sales from Target or other stores (e.g., Walmart, Buy Buy Baby)?

    Also wondering if I should hold out to September to see if Walmart will do their trade in for a more flexible gift card instead, thought I do need a new car seat before that. Any thoughts?

    • casey

      Did they do that program the last time? I thought they stopped doing it because people were abusing the program so badly (stealing car seats out of cars, etc)

      • Alikia29

        As far as I know, they haven’t done it the last few years. I try to pair the 20% with a seat that’s on sale for extra savings. I’m also hoping it will stack with my birthday discount 🤞🏼

      • Ashley

        That was Walmart and it was because they were offering gift cards. A 20% coupon isn’t nearly as enticing for thieves, especially since you can only use it on other baby gear (not even diapers, wipes, etc).

  5. Amy

    Does the coupon work on Britax brand car seats?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey Amy! It will likely apply to most car seats sold at Target. Be sure to keep an eye out for the official offer details once this begins! 🤗 We’ll keep a lookout as well!

  6. Pietra Leone

    Is it all car seats eligible for coupon? Looking to get the evenflow

    • Stacy F (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yup! The coupon will work on any brand!

    • Monica

      Do you know if you can trade in a carseat base?

      • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

        Hi Monica! That has worked in previous years. Be sure to keep an eye out for the specific details for this year’s offer when it is available. Hope this helps! 💞

  7. Amy

    Is there an expiration date for the 20% off coupon? Or how long do we have to redeem until expired?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Amy! GREAT question. 💖I did reach out to customer service about that and they do not have the details yet on when the offer will expire. Be sure to stay tuned!

    • Lexi

      Usually it expires in a few weeks

  8. christine9100

    Is this coupon good for all brands? Like the more expensive brands like Mockingbird or UppaBaby?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      It should be valid on any brand.🤗🙌

  9. cheapy

    If you are in the market for a car seat I suggest buying an old car seat from a yard sale and taking that in to exchange at target.

  10. Jenni

    Can you use the coupon the same day you get it? Is it only good for 1 carseat or can it be used on multiples? We have 2 carseats to trade in and need 2 highback booster seats, would we have to do them separately?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Great questions! Customer service does not yet have the specific details available for this offer yet. Be sure to to stay tuned as we get closer to April 18th!

      In past years I believe you could get more than one coupon, however they had to be used separately. Hoping this is helpful!

    • Lexi

      Because it’s a coupon that you scan at the drop box it goes straight to your target circle account. So if you are trading in 2 then you would need 2 separate target circle accounts

  11. Kendra H

    Can you stack the 20% trade-in coupon with a registry completion discount?

    • Lexi

      Yes you can. Last year I stacked the 20% off coupon from trade in, registry discount, plus my debit red card 5% and gift cards $125. Got a $475 car seat for $114

  12. Kimberly

    Do you know if booster seats are eligible to trade-in for the 20% off coupon? The small ones without a back on it. Not sure what they consider a “car seat”.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      In previous years, they have included them, Kimberly!❤

      • Kim

        Great, thanks so much for the reply!

        • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

          You are welcome, Kim! Have a great day!❤

  13. ImThatJennay

    Hey does anyone know- Can we trade in just a base? And is there a list of brands/ or strollers that qualify?

    • Stacy F (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      You sure can trade in a base! For the past couple of years, they have had shoppers just drop off their donation (any brand) in a box and then you scan a QR code on the box to get your coupon. The coupon is good for pretty much all brands of car seats and select baby gear. We won’t know of any brand exceptions until we are able to see the coupon, though.

  14. Bayli

    Does the 20% off go towards any car seat if it is already on sale? For example if the Chicco maxfit is already 20% off can you get an additional 20% off or does it only go towards specific items?

    • Klp

      Usually you can stack the deals

  15. Elizabeth

    What other baby gear does the 20% work on

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey thereJ! It appears to work on car seats, bases, strollers & travel systems, bouncers & rockers, playards, swings, jumpers, and walkers. Be sure to check the fine print of the offer when you snag it for more details. You can also get any additonal details from customer service before shopping. Hoping this is helpful! ❤️🤗

  16. Hanna

    I have two infant car-seat with their bases, do I get 20% off for each items(4) or just one for each car-seat and the base?
