Target's Semiannual Car Seat Trade-In Program Is Back For Fall! Here's What You Need to Know

Target's semiannual car seat trade-in event is back for fall 2021! From Sept. 12 through 25, customers can visit their local Target (check here to make sure your store is participating) to recycle old car seats in exchange for a 20 percent off coupon that can be used on a new car seat, car seat base, travel system, stroller, or select baby home gear.

Used car seats can be left in the labeled drop-off boxes located at Guest Services, which will have codes that customers can scan from their mobile phones to activate the coupon. To receive their coupon — which can be used in stores and online — customers must be signed up for the store's free reward program, Target Circle.

Target has been running its car seat trade-in program since April 2016, and has recycled more than 22.2 million pounds of car seats — and counting — with its partner, Waste Management.
