Putting the "er" in Greater Trade-In

Guess what's back? Back again? Trade-In's back, tell a friend!

to February 5, 2018 by Taylor O'Donnell

One of the questions we get the most on social media? When does Great Trade-In Start? Well get ready, because it’s here! The Greater Trade-In event is here (with a new name too). Over the past 8 years, the Great Trade-In event has helped parents and caregivers remove millions of used, damaged or potentially dangerous items out of homes by offering ah-mazing discounts in exchange (win, win!). Safety has always been the goal of Great Trade-In, and that hasn’t changed – but that doesn’t mean we can’t also make it Greater (#punintended). 

This year, we’ve added clothing to the Greater Trade-In event in addition to gear and furniture. Babies“R”Us and Toys“R”Us are working with local charities across the country to help clothe children in need. And with every gently-used clothing item traded-in, not only are we taking one step closer to that goal, but in return, we are giving you a 25% discount on your entire purchase of clothing in store through March 18. 

Here’s a quick look at what bargain hunters need to know:

  • The Greater Trade-In event begins Sunday, February 11 for loyalty members, or Friday, February 16 for all other customers, and will run through Sunday, March 18.
  • We’ve added crib and toddler mattresses to the trade-in gear and furniture list (can I get a whoop, whoop?)
  • By trading in an old gear, furniture, or clothing item, customers will receive a 25% discount on a new gear or furniture item or the entirety of their clothing purchase*.
  • Customers using their “R”Us credit card will receive a 30% discount when trading in gear, furniture or clothing in store**.
  • No Trade-In? No problem! From Friday, February 16 through Sunday, March 18, customers can take advantage of a 15% off discount on any one gear or furniture item online at Babiesrus.com – and in-store only, shoppers will receive 15% off any one baby item***.

At stores that are currently undergoing liquidation, customers will be offered a 25% coupon on their trade-in which can be utilized at local participating Babies“R”Us stores or online at Babiesrus.com, valid through March 18.

About Taylor O’Donnell: As a child, Taylor could generally be found with her nose in a book, coloring away in her notebook (and once on the wall—sorry mom!), or acting out epic dramas (ok, recreating soap operas…) with her stuffed animals -- anyone would agree that she certainly had an active imagination. As an adult, Taylor loves that every day, she gets to cultivate the imaginations of children through toys by working her dream job at Toys“R”Us! Well that, and being able to play with all of the hottest toys herself!
