Bring in a used crib, car seat, or other baby product and get 20 percent off a new item at Toys R Us or Babies R Us starting Friday, Aug. 28 and going through Sept. 20. They are accepting used cribs, car seats, bassinets, strollers, travel systems, play yards and high chairs. The 20 percent off coupon is for buying a new baby item in one these product categories.
Caveats: the new baby items are restricted to certain manufacturers, including Baby Cache, Babi Italia, Baby Trend, Bertini, Britax, Chicco, Contours by Kolcraft, Cosco, Delta, Eddie Bauer, Evenflo, Graco, Jeep, Nature’s Purest by Summer Infant, and Sorelle.
A press release for the trade-in deal says it is designed to call attention to safety concerns over car seats and cribs being (unsafely, they imply) handed down or resold. I wonder what the discount program will do to sales.
