BRU 'Great Trade-In Event'

I know it was posted before somewhere on DS, but the trade-in even is going on at BRU where you turn in any piece of major equipment (there are participating brands) and you get 25% off the purchase of a new piece of major equipment (cribs, playyards, bassinets, strollers, etc...).

What I saw on here before though, was someone said the car seat you turned in had to not be expired - WRONG! I called BRU and they said that you take in your equipement NO MATTER the age and NO MATTER the condition (stained, ripped, missing pieces, etc...) and they will accept it. It could be from 1905 and they'll take it. The point of the trade event is to get unusable and unsafe equipment out of circulation.

Just thought I'd let you all know! So hit up the free section on craig's list and find some idiot trying to give away an expired car seat (instead of throwing it away) and using it to your advantage! Free coupon! I'm taking in my old beat up PnP and getting a new one! Hooray!

Re: BRU 'Great Trade-In Event'

I was wondering about how this works. We have a car seat we are getting ready to replace, and then an infant carrier with base that IS expired (I was just going to use the carrier portion when running into Walmart using it in the actual cart part..) So if I turn both in can I purchase two more car seats for 25% off. Is it an item for item kind of thing?

Re: BRU 'Great Trade-In Event'

Yes, it's an item per item kind of thing. You can get as many 25% off coupons as items you bring in, but you have to use them same-day and you can only use one coupon per new item. At least that's what I understood reading the ad. Did that make sense?

I was also wondering about the in-store vs online thing. There's a few items I want that they only carry online...

Re: BRU 'Great Trade-In Event'

Item for Item - You turn one in, you get one 25% off coupon valid for one item's purchase.

ONLY in-store.

And ONLY same-day.

I brought in a high chair yesterday and got my coupon... the item I wanted wasn't in stock and the coupon went to waste. I could have gotten the chair back buy my husband was in a tiff mood last night and I basically just donated the high chair :'( Oh well, the chair was unusable and at least it saved me money from having to take it to the dump (glass half full, right?).

So make sure you go in BEFORE you turn in your item, and check to see that what you want is THERE, IN STOCK and will qualify for the coupon. Then go out to your car, get your trade-in, get the coupon for it, and be done!

Re: BRU 'Great Trade-In Event'

yeah, was going to post this too as just learned about it. I have an expired Britax in garage and want to trade in to get a crib. However, I'm guessing the least expensive ones will be gone come payday when we get around to getting over there.
