    I'm in the same situation, we have an expired seat a friend gave us (before it expired) but I don't need anything, lol. I could get a spare seat for my Mom to use the rare times she transports Jake, but I could get a better deal with 30% off at kohls...

    It all depends on if boosters are technically considered child seats or not, I would guess yes. You can trade in any of the items from the list and get a 25% off for other 1 any item from the list, they don't have to be in the same category.

    Looks as though the excluded brand list is much smaller than last time too! Appears Britax/Bob can use the 25% off.

    If all of the Frontiers are on sale- that means you can't use the trade in on them, right? I was hoping to pick one up with our just about outgrown RA50.

    This still has a lot of restrictions, right? I have a couple expired seats but all I need is a frontier zebra and that shows as only being available online.

    I have an expired seat DH is really tired of taking up space. I just "justified" in my head at least, why I need a new easy to install FF seat for a spare. Even if I don't find a good deal, I will at least be rid of the seat finally!

    Re: It's BaCk! The Great Trade-In Event at TRU/BRU!

    Does anyone know if they will accept a naked infant seat without a harness? I washed the straps (I know better now) to an old now expired snugride that a friend gave me and misplaced them... i gave the seat to my friend to trade in but she doesn't want to look like an idiot she read that if the seat don't have a harness its not a car seat and you can't trade it in (like boosters)?

    Thanks

    I see people asking why they won't take boosters but I don't see BRU answering - I think maybe it is a misunderstanding? they don't specify booster but they don't specify convertible or infant seat, either. Just "car seats."

    That Facebook thread is 2.5 years old? So policies may have changed or maybe they were thinking booster seats as in kitchen booster seats and not car booster seats.

    I hadn't heard the no booster seat thing and turned in 2 LBB and 1 combination. They were all saved from the trash and looked horrific. It was embarrassing to think they thought they were my seats!!

    Oh yeah, it IS embarrassing if they think it's yours! I peered into a filthy infant seat the other day and the preggy new mom was all, "Oh no, someone gave me that, I really think it's expired...." (actually not even close, but omg, you can't even imagine putting a newborn in that ).

    Boosters yes. Naked seats yes. Carseat bases no.

    Today, I gave a local mom two seats that had been in my garage and basement for years. I warned her that they were dirty and cobwebby.
