I have been waiting for this event to trade in an old car seat for a new booster seat. Anyone with experience who can comment on how this works?

I'm wondering if the item you want has to be stocked on shelves, particularly. I went in yesterday to browse and they only had 1-2 of each booster seat on the shelf.

Thanks for the start date! Do you know how long it lasts? I have an old stroller I'd like to trade in, and I don't know how it works either. Are there any major exceptions as far as manufacturers?

What do you get if you trade something in? Can can this discount be combined with the regular 20% off babies r us coupon?
Thx

Definitely no stacking coupons, just the one (though *maybe* a registry completion coupon or credit card approval work, generally those will stack, but I never know what will happen till I try to ring it...).
If they run out of stock of a regularly stocked item (we keep way less stuff visible now, the stockroom is probably stacked to the roof in preparation for the event), then they will order it from online (word of warning, this can be a tedious procedure...).
Every year things are a little different, the first year, no Britax! :eek: Looks like Fisher Price is still too cool to play along :rolleyes:...I'll update if there's anything really weird this year.
No, you don't have to have a cover or harness on your carseat (if it's gross, they will be happy you spared them the funk...), and unfortunately, a carseat base doesn't work. It all gets piled onto pallets and taken to the dump wrapped in huge amounts of plastic wrap, so seriously, don't bring in anything with good resale value.

What if the car seat I want to buy with 25% off is only sold online?

It's iffy, I think. I was able to get a Coccoro this way in 2013. The store was actually happy to do it but the TRU employee had to make some phone calls and it took awhile to get it squared away on the computer. It shipped to the store.

That's exactly what I would be doing if I did it. Don't know if I want to spend the money tho.

Definitely maybe. The coupons we get for online are really kind of meant to be for out of stock items, but then again, the rules change every year...so...definitely maybe, lol. It can't hurt to ask, and make sure you are asking a manager who hopefully knows all the procedures.

Yay, I was able to give two naked, strapless expired seats to friends to get new seats! :) Wish I needed something now, but won't until next year, and will have more expired seats by then!

Is this the best price I will get on a car seat at BRU? I am not prepared to spend a lot of money this month as my baby is still only 7 lbs, but will need a convertible car seat before February 2016.

One coupon per trade-in. Cannot be combined with any other ''R''Us offer for same item(s) or on prior purchases."

For the most part, it doesn't seem that great. The Car Seat Deals group on facebook posts amazing coupon stacks for Kohls and Target and Amazon has had some great deals as well (especially leading up to Black Friday). I'll only be participating because I have a crashed seat and $150 in store credit from returns:p

The thing is...it may cost you money to toss an old seat if you don't have locals recycling. So for me it's totally worth it to bring an old seat in, get the coupon booklet and see if I can get a deal even if it's not on another car seat. Hoping this year to use it on a Space saver high chair.

On another blog, a woman claimed to stack coupons at target and get a NextFit for $125. That is awesome.

Does it have to be Graco? The car seat you purchase with the 25% off coupon after trading in a seat?

It's all brands of carseats they carry in most stores (not peg or maxi cosi), and all the brands of everything else (just NOT fisher price) :)

There was a week a month or so ago where there was a glitch in target's system that if you did store pickup with the red card, the nextfit ended up being about $110 out the door.
