Target giving 20% off coupons to people who trade-in old car seats

The retailer's annual trade-in event runs through April 17.
Publish date:

Target's car seat trade-in event is underway, with those who return old seats getting a discount on select baby home gear.

People can bring their old seats, including those that have expired or are damaged, to any Target store now through Saturday, April 17, the Minneapolis-based retailer said.

Anyone who trades in their old car seat will get a 20% off coupon that can be used toward a new car seat, car seat base, travel system, stroller or other select baby home gear, such as high chairs, swings, rockers and bouncers. 

The more contactless version of the car seat trade-in event will feature drop-off boxes near guest services and something you can scan with your phone to get a digital coupon in the Target Circle app (you must be enrolled in the free Target Cicle program to get the coupon). 

The 20% off coupon, which can be redeemed twice if you have two car seats to trade in, is available for both in-store and online purchases through May 1. 

Target will accept and recycle all types of car seats, even those that are expired and damaged. Materials from the seats are recycled via Waste Management. 

The retailer held its first car seat trade-in program in April 2016. And since then, it has recycled more than 1.1 million car seats, equating to more than 17 million pounds of plastic.
