Did you know that car seats expire? This was news to me when I became a parent. If you have an expiring or expired car seat or even just an extra one your child has outgrown, hurry to your closest Walmart! From September 16th - 30th you are eligible for a $30 Walmart gift card with every car seat trade in.

Walmart Car Seat Trade In Details

Walmart’s first ever car seat trade-in program is September 16th - 30th, 2019. Walmart has teamed up with TerraCycle to recycle used car seats. Not only will you benefit from a $30 Walmart gift card, but you can also feel good knowing that your car seat is avoiding landfills.

Here’s How It Works

  1. Find a participating Walmart Store - a super fast search will show you all local stores accepting car seat trade ins.
  2. Bring your seat to the Customer Service Desk to be recycled
  3. Receive a $30 Walmart Gift Card that can be used in store or online.

It’s really that simple! In recognition of the Best of Baby month, many Walmart locations are also hosting free events. From Diaper Challenges to Stroller Testing these informative and fun events are a great way for parents to learn more about their child’s safety and test out the latest gear. 

For additional details, check out the Walmart event page.  If you aren’t sure when your child’s car seat expires, now is a great time to find out!
