Baby gear is costly, so it’s no surprise parents love to save wherever they can—and trade-in programs are a great way to do so. Not only do trade-in programs provide the gear with a second life and home, but they’re also a lot more sustainable. Now GoodBuy Gear, an online marketplace dedicated to extending the life of great children’s gear, is making it easier than ever to trade in your outgrown items.

In an extension of last year’s flourishing partnership with buybuy BABY, GoodBuy Gear and the retail giant have announced that parents can now trade in a wider assortment of used baby gear any day and time that works for them.

Under the previous agreement, parents could only drop off items once a week, but starting today, US buybuy BABY stores will accept drop-offs every day of the week during regular business hours. In exchange for your trade-in, parents can receive up to $600 in buybuy BABY gift cards to reinvest in their child’s next stage of essential gear.

Parents shopping for used gear for low prices can rest assured that their child’s safety is protected. Once the items are traded in, GoodBuy Gear performs quality and safety checks to ensure gently-used products meet needed safety standards.

“Most children’s gear is designed to have a usable life that far exceeds the average time a caregiver actually needs an item. GoodBuy Gear serves as the leading arbiter for the quality and safety of secondhand baby items and helps families shop smartly, save money, and reduce consumerism,” said GoodBuy Gear CEO and Co-founder Kristin Langenfeld in a previous statement.

The expanded list of accepted gear includes loungers, strollers, carriers, bouncers and high chairs from brands like Keekaroo, Veer, UPPAbaby, Bugaboo, Maxi-Cosi and more.

"More than doubling our list of accepted items during everyday drop-offs at all US buy buy BABY stores allows families to recoup spend on the baby and kid gear they’re no longer using in an incredibly convenient and sustainable way,” said GoodBuy Gear’s Director of Customer Care Amanda Brown in a press release. Since expanding the program, GoodBuy Gear has collected thousands of items and since recirculated 98% to new families.
