Target Stores annual child car seat trade-in event every April allows you to trade in an old car seat and receive a 20%-off coupon toward a new car seat, stroller, or other select baby gear. You must be a member of the Target Circle™ loyalty rewards program, which is free and easy to join online.
How does the target car seat trade-in program work?
To participate in the trade-in and receive a coupon you must be enrolled in the Target Circle™ Rewards program. It’s free and easy to join (and quit). Every time you shop you have a chance to earn rewards to apply as a discount on future purchases. Target circle members also get access to other special offers.
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.
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 other 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.
The coupon expires in a couple of weeks, so be sure to use it soon.
Target introduced its first car seat trade-in program in April 2016. Since the program launched, Target has recycled over 2 million car seats, or more than 36 million pounds car seat materials. So, you’re doing your part to reduce, reuse and cycle. Materials from the old car seats will be recycled to create new products such as pallets, plastic buckets, and construction materials.
