Babies “R” Us Announces Annual Trade-In Event

Is that rattling stroller wheel rattling your nerves? Starting January 23, consumers can start trading in defective, recalled, or simply older baby gear and get 25% off a new item. The Babies “R” Us “Great Trade-In Event” is the annual, month-long opportunity to upgrade items like car seats, strollers, and cribs, and products in many other categories.

Since 2009 – when the program began – over 1 million pieces have been removed from circulation. The company notes that the Great Trade-In Event raises awareness about potential dangers from used and older products.

Here’s how it works: Bring in an old item (Toys “R” Us locations are also included), and get a 25% discount coupon towards any new product in that category, from the participating manufacturers. There is no limit, either; consumers can get separate coupons for as many items as they bring in, although coupons cannot be combined.
