Yes, correct me if I'm wrong, I do believe the seat has to be empty.

Like Target, the intent of the trade-in was to use toward the purchase of an upgraded car seat of other needed baby items, and a limit of 2 per household.
But unlike Target the terms were lite to say the least- they just gave you a $30 giftcard to use how you please.
So you had people getting old car seats from wherever they could, and several using different IDs or other family members to get past the 2 per household.
It got so excessive that managers started ending their store participation, and Walmart corporate officially pulled the plug 9 days earlier than the announced run.
I'd normally agree with your statement about planned obsolescence. With the potential temperature extremes however in a typical car, plus all of the inevitable spilled drinks and food, bodily fluids, plus general wear and tear... After a good 6-7 years, I'd venture that sometimes it's worth it to upgrade car seats (if your child hasn't already outgrown it by then)
Anyone know if Walmart is doing the $30 deal?
