    I wonder if I can convince ICBC to let me trade my crashed restraint in, in order to save them 20%?

    ARe they usually sticklers about getting old seats back? I'd give it a try - your receipt would reflect the 20% coupon as proof.

    I don't have any idea yet. It starts tomorrow and I haven't been at work since last Saturday. I'll be sure to post if I'm able to get a straight answer though.

    In the States, all traded in items were kept in a secure area (behind the counter, in the back) and loaded onto trucks to go to a central regional location where they were destroyed.

    Britax has shipped new Frontier XT stock to the warehouse, so I would expect it will be about 3 weeks before it's on shelves. But never know - could be sooner I suppose. (I haven't actually looked on our system to see when it's expected to arrive in the warehouse - it's possible it's there already, I just happen to know through other channels that the replacement stock was shipped to BRU just a little bit ago.)

    So if I trade in a car seat does it have to have a certain amount of usable years left? Or can I trade in my Evenflo Chase that expires in December?

    Any seat; expired, crashed, or just plain "you don't want it anymore".

    So... will they trade a used stroller for a 20% discount on carseats?

    Also, what about one purchased with a sale raincheck

    Hmm if it includes expired seats maybe I might hold onto my expired Eddie Bauer then for when/if they do it again. Good thing it was way too hot for me to start trashing it this week.

    When DD outgrows the Marathon I plan on getting her the Frontier and that would really help with the cost of one.

    Off to post the link on my FB and hopefully some people will take at advantage and get rid of their expired seats.

    thanks for this, I'm going to be letting my friend know, she's got an expired seat she's still using, because she is having a hard time affording a new one, and she's already got my spare, and no one else has one she can use

    Maybe i'll trade in my rear adjust Evenflo Embrace and get a True Fit as I'm never going to use the Embrace again and I'm still waiting for Zellers to have a sale on the True Fit.
