Target [target.com] is offering free child car seat recycling from September 10 to September 23, 2017. Take in your car seat and they will recycle it via Terracycle [target.com] and give you a coupon for 20% off on a new car seat, booster, base or travel system as incentive to trade-in. The coupon will expire October 7, 2017 and can be used in-store or online, please see wiki for details. Last time they did this, a few days before the expiration of the coupon they had some really good deals on car seats. YMMV.


We all know how hard it is to properly dispose of a child car seat. Many recycling places do not take the seats for recycling unless you dismantle them piece by piece into their core components. But you can just take them into Target during this event.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

I hope you're joking, plastic degrades over time. Is your child's life not really worth the $200 it costs for a new one rather than chancing it with a free old expired seat? That works out to less than $1 a day if the seat only lasted a year which they don't.

Strollers and bottles are not meant to protect your child in the event of a serious crash...

Uhm, even the manufacturers say 10 yrs plastic life. But obviously, make it 6 yrs and you guarantee revenue streams AND minimize lawsuits for recommending 10yrs.

I own two car seats, one with a 5 year expiration, another with a 10 year expiration. They're both from the same manufacturer, use the same type of plastic, same thickness of plastic, and both have a steel bar in them for reinforcement. The 10 year one just so happens to be branded as an All-In-One, whereas the other is just a regular 40 pound max car seat.

So please go ahead and explain to me why the identical plastic in the All-In-One has twice the rated lifespan as the plastic in the car seat.

Plus if plastic really degrades in the way people like to claim, then your car itself needs to be thrown out after five years. I mean that literally, since the back of the seat is made of plastic which is exposed to the sun, so how come vehicle seats don't have an expiration date?!

I can absolutely believe that a plastic safety product has a natural lifespan (particularly when exposed to sunlight). I just don't believe that lifespan is under 10 years; and nobody has released any studies/tests/data suggesting otherwise. There's also no government regulation on this (either US, EU, or Canada) it is all "voluntary."

The fact manufacturers can change their expiration with a flick of a pen (when the product design demands it) suggests to me they're taking advantage of people's paranoia to sell more seats which people happily lap up (and make up their own rationale for why, even while not applying that same rationale towards other plastic safety critical products in their lives).

The question is.... is target generally price competitive when it comes to car seats?

Generally they are fairly competitive. There may occasionally be a better deal from Amazon or the same deal from Albee Baby with the sales tax savings for anyone outside of NY, but with the 20% off added in, these are some of the best prices you can find. They also have many of the premium brands available online, and the coupon is valid online.

Does anyone know if the 5% red card discount stacks with this?

Can we combine 20% coupon with cartwheel? And can we still do the price match?
Thanks

That's fine as long as the seat isn't near expiration. Respect car seat expiration dates, as they could be the difference between a functional car seat and one that loses structural integrity and falls apart when it's needed most.

Expiration on car seats? Is there an expiration on strollers and baby bottles too? Just another way for manufacturers to keep the revenue stream flowing
