September is National Baby Month and Walmart wants to ensure your kids are riding safely. They are even offering a $30 gift card when you bring in your old, unused, or unusable car seats. There’s a two-seat limit per household, but that still means $60 back in your pocket if you have two or to put towards a new car seat to keep your baby safe.
Walmart will also be keeping those old car seats out of landfills as they have partnered with Terracycle to ensure they are recycled. This offering from Walmart started Monday and will only be valid for the remainder of Baby Safety Month, ending on September 30th.
Car Seat Expiration Dates
Most car seats are only good for about six years. Many people don’t know that car seats have an expiration date. They do – they all do. The date is generally printed on the manufacturer label, and/or could be stamped into the plastic on the car seat. Most of the time, if it is stamped, it can be found on the bottom side of the car seat.
Walmart Protecting Babies
The Walmart offer includes expired, unused and unusable car seats. If your child simply does not need a seat any longer, or if your current seat has any safety flaws or is expired – you can get $30. It’s vital for your child’s safety that you get a new seat if you have an expired one or one that is unsafe – Walmart wants to get these seats out of cars and keep them out of landfills.
It’s a great time to check to ensure your baby is riding safely. Through September 30th, Walmart will give you a $30 Walmart gift card to use towards a new seat or anything you want at Walmart. To take advantage of this limited-time offer, check the Walmart car seat trade-in page and find a participating location near you.
To get your gift card, take your car seat into a participating Walmart and they’ll trade you for a $30 Walmart Gift Card. The program is designed to keep the plastic out of landfills – and be sure parents are checking their car seats for safety. Check yours today!
