Parents of littles, LISTEN UP!
Target's car seat trade-in program is running September 9th - September 22nd with even bigger discounts and promotions offered than ever before!
The basics are this:
- Bring any carseat into a Target store, receive a 20% off coupon from the customer service desk.
- Any carseat or booster no matter the make or model qualify for trade-in. Carseat/Booster can also be expired or damaged, ALL ARE WELCOME!
- There are large bins set up in the front of the store to accept used carseats, simply deposit yours there and collect your coupon from the customer service desk.
- 20% off coupon can be used toward the purchase of any new carseat or stroller from Target or select baby and home items including play yards, high chairs, swings and bouncers.
So, that's pretty rad, right?
Target introduced its first car seat trade-in program in April 2016. Since the program launched, more than 306,000 car seats, or 4.6 million pounds of car seats, have been recycled. Seems like a WAY better option that just dumping your old seat in the trash or trying to find a recycling center to accept it.
ALL Target stores are participating in the Trade-In program, except the small-format ones so if it's time to upgrade your child's carseat, get your buns into Target and hand off that crusty old one that's covered in glued on fruit snacks, juice stains and Chick-Fil-A sauce anyway, and score major discounts on a new one for your little darling to break in just right.
Is it even a carseat if there's not crackers crushed up somewhere near? I really can't say.
You feel me on this. I know you do.
*Be advised that the AAP has updated its recommendations on carseats and restraints to advises the following:
"AAP recommends children remain in a rear-facing car safety seat as long as possible, until they reach the highest weight or height allowed by their seat. Previously, the AAP specified children should remain rear-facing at least to age 2; the new recommendation removes the specific age milestone." Read the full recommendation HERE.
