trade in event

If your child is due to a new car seat, don’t miss this event! Toys R Us and Babies R Us are hosting a One & Only Car Seat Trade-Up Event.

You can bring in any car seat or travel system to get a coupon for 25% off a new one. If you have a Babies R Us or Toys R Us Credit card, your coupon will be for 30% off. If you don’t have an old car seat to trade-in, you can still get a coupon for 15% off.

This is a really great chance to make sure your child has as safe of a seat as possible. If you’re curious if your child needs a new seat, check the expiration date. It is found near the base and if it has expired, it needs to go.

When shopping for a new car seat we like to take both of our cars and test out seats before purchasing to make sure we can get the proper fit. Keep in mind that AAP recommends rear facing till at least age 2. You’ll want to make sure this is possible with the seat you pick in your vehicles. The safest seat for your child is the one you can install correctly in your car every single time. You can go here for a list of top recommended car seats.

The event is September 1st-30th.

      Does anyone know how old your used car seat can be before trading? Ours is getting ready to expire at the end of the year, so we will be upgrading–but does this matter? Does your previous purchase need to be from Babies R Us as well…?

      • LeAnn Taylor

        It doesn’t matter. I have taken an expired one before! And it doesn’t matter where it was from.

    • Cynthia Gustum

      Is it just car seats the coupon is good for? I just bought my son a new convertible carseat but want to get rid of the old one ( I also had a couple given to me, I didn’t use them since I didn’t know the hustory)

    • Nikki

      Does anyone know if you can trade in just the car seat from a travel system? We want to keep the stoller but get a new car seat.

    • Brenda

      I’ve done this before. When we did it, we traded a carseat and stroller, but they were not a matching set. We got a discount coupon for the carseat AND another one for the stroller. So as long as they haven’t changed it, you get a coupon for each item you trade in. It doesn’t matter if the seat is expired or recalled, they take them. Reason is so that you can have a safe one and they can make sure the old ones get properly disposed of. It’s a great program!

    • Lee

      We took the cover off our expired seat and sold it. Can we trade in the bare car seat?

    • Anna

      How long is the coupon good for? I have to get a couple of car seats and would like to get one now and one later. Do the coupons have an expiration date?
