Target Car Seat Trade-In: April 2024

Target is skipping the annual September 2023 car seat trade-in event and the next one will be April 2024. During that time, you can earn a 20% coupon from Target towards a new car seat, stroller, or select baby gear when you trade in an old car seat or base. Even if you don’t need new baby gear, having a coupon to put towards new baby gear for a new mom or a family in need would be pretty awesome. The coupons will only be given through the ◎circle Target app. Target recycles the old car seats and gear, having already recycled more than 22.2 million pounds so far.

Your 20% off coupon from Target usually needs to be redeemed within the month following the trade-in event.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Drop Off: Drop off an old car or base to the designated drop-off spots at Target inside the store. There should be signs. Hopefully.
  2. Scan: Open the Target app and scan the code on the box.
  3. Find: Open your Wallet in the Target App to find your coupon.
  4. Save: Click the red “+” to save the offer and place your order online, or scan your barcode at the register.

You can bring in any car seat in whatever shape they are in. Target accepts convertible car seats, infant car seats, car seat bases, and harness and booster seats.

The 20% off coupon from Target can be used on car seat, car seat bases, travel stroller systems, high chairs, swings, bouncers, rockers, and play yards.
