Target’s popular car seat trade-in program is returning this Monday, April 5 through Saturday, April 17, 2021!
For this limited time, you will be able to turn in an unused or expired car seat at guest services and receive a voucher for 20% off your next purchase of a car seat, car seat base, booster seat or stroller, and select baby home gear at Target stores or online at Target.com.
You must be enrolled in the Target Circle program to take advantage of the offer and you’ll have to redeem that voucher by May 21, 201.
Why is Target hosting a Car Seat Trade-In Event?
To help save the planet! The car seats you turn in will be recycled by Waste Management which will turn your old seats into things like shopping carts, buckets and construction materials!
Target has held several recycling programs like this since 2016 and has recycled more than ONE MILLION car seats which equals out to 17+ million pounds of waste that DID NOT end up in land fills! Pretty cool.
So, how does it work??
During the program dates, you can drop off your old car seat at one of the car seat collection boxes near Guests Services at your local participating store. Make sure you’ve already registered with the Target Circle program to save time. There will be scan sheets near the collection boxes to scan into your Target Circle account from your phone.
Pretty simple process and it’s a win-win since you get to save $$ while doing a small part to save the planet!
We knew we already loved Target, but now we love them even more!
Speaking of love…we are loving all of the valuable information Michelle Pratt of Safe in the Seat shared with us during our Facebook Live a couple years ago at the Target on Gandy Blvd in Tampa.
