Target Car Seat Trade-In program

Target’s Car Seat Trade-In Program Returns in April!

Target’s popular car seat trade-in program is returning April 14-27, 2024!

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 one car seat, booster seat, stroller, or other select baby home gear at Target stores or online at

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 11, 2024.

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 2.6 MILLION car seats which equals out to 39 million pounds of waste that DID NOT end up in landfills! Pretty cool.

So, how does the Target Car Seat Trade-In program 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.

I recycled my youngest son’s old infant car seat during the last Target Car Seat Trade-in event and it was super easy!

As I said, it’s a pretty simple process and it’s a win-win since you get to save money while doing a small part to save the planet!

We knew we already loved Target, but now we love them even more!
