How to Take Advantage of Target's Car Seat Trade-In Event
Looking for an excuse to make a Target run? We have you covered. Starting Sunday, April 22, Target’s car seat trade-in event is back. That means you can bring any old car seat—in any condition—to the store to be recycled, and you’ll receive 20 percent off a new seat or stroller.
The initiative, tied to Earth Month, aims to reduce the hundreds of thousands of pounds of waste generated by car seats that need to be tossed each year. Because car seats expire every 6 to 10 years and because they’re not eligible for most curbside recycling programs, they often end up in landfills. So Target has partnered with Waste Management to recycle car seat parts.
Here’s where you come in. Bring your seat to the drop-off box located near the Guest Services counter at your local Target. An employee will give you a 20 percent coupon per seat dropped off. The coupon, which is good through May 19, 2018, will earn you discounts on any new car seat, booster seat, car seat base, travel system or stroller.
You have until May 5 to trade in your old seats! But, let’s be honest, you’ll definitely make it to Target before then.
