Target Stores annual child car seat trade-in event allows you to trade in an old car seat and receive a 20%-off coupon toward a new car seat, stroller, or select baby gear when you trade in your old car seat. You must be a member of the Target Circle™ loyalty rewards program, which is free and easy to join online.
Your car seat 20%-off trade-in coupon can be applied to a selected list of childcare items, including a new car seat, car seat base, travel system, stroller, or select baby home gear. Select baby home gear includes a wide range of options such as play yards, highchairs, swings, rockers, bouncers, walkers, entertainers, and jumpers.
How does the target car seat trade-in program work?
To participate in the Target car seat trade-in, you must be enrolled in their free loyalty program, Target Circle (it’s free and easy to join).
You must take your trade-in to a Target store. All Target stores are participating in the program, except a few small format stores. In Hawaiʻi, there are two Target stores on the Big Island (Hilo, Kailua-Kona), one each on Maui (Kahului) and Kauaʻi (Lihue), and three on Oʻahu (Honolulu, Kailua, Kapolei).

All types of car seats are accepted for trade-in, including infant seats, convertible seats, car seat bases, harness or booster car seats. It doesn’t matter if the car seat is expired or damaged—these are also accepted.
When you arrive at your nearest Target store, head to Guest Services and look for a drop-off box. After you drop off the car seat, find the sign nearby with a QR code, and scan from your mobile phone into your Target Circle app. After scanning, you will see one coupon in your Target Circle account.
Trading in two car seats? You can redeem the Target car seat trade in offer TWICE and get TWO 20% discount coupons.
You’re doing your part to reduce, reuse and cycle, too. Materials from the old car seats will be recycled by Target’s partner, Waste Management, to create new products such as pallets, plastic buckets, and construction materials.
- Since Target introduced its first car seat trade-in program in April 2016, over 25 MILLION pounds of car seat material have been recycled from nearly two million car seats.
