Target is trading used car seats in exchange for discount coupons

Have an old car seat you’re little one has grown out of and need to purchase a booster seat?

Then you’re in luck! Target’s car seat trade-in program is back again this year. Wahoo!

Target’s used car seat trade-in is back!

From September 3rd to 13th, parents who bring in their old car seats will be given a 20% coupon to use to buy a new car seat.

But if you don’t need a new car seat, you can also purchase a range of other items such as booster seats, car seat bases, strollers, high chairs, bouncers as well as other baby equipment!

All you have to do is drop off your old car seat at Guest Services and one of the store’s team members will give you a coupon.

Target say they will “accept and recycle all types of car seats, including infant seats, convertible seats, car seat bases, harness or booster car seats and car seats that are expired or damaged.”

The store has recycled about 11.98 million pounds of material the trade-ins first launched in 2016.

The law when it comes to kids travelling in a car:

According to the Digest of Motor Laws, each state has its own laws regarding child car seats.

However, overall it seems that children aged between 4 until 8 must ride in a child safety seat or booster seat unless they are over 4 feet 9 inches or weigh more than 40 lbs.

Children under the age of 4 must be restrained in a child passenger restraint system.

New study reveals children are being taken out of their booster seats too early

The five step test to decide whether your child is too big for their booster seat:

  1. Their back is against the seat
  2. Their knees bend over the edge of the chair
  3. The seatbelt sits in the middle of their shoulder
  4. The lap belt sits across their hips
  5. They stay seated like this the whole trip
