Parents can get up to £150 free cash to go towards essentials by Mamas & Papas – but there’s a catch | The Sun

PARENTS can get up to £150 free cash to go towards essential items from Mamas & Papas, but there's a catch.

The baby brand sells items like prams, clothing and bottles.

And a new scheme from Mamas & Papa's will give parents and carers the chance to cash in their old baby products for cash.

Parents whose little ones have outgrown their prams can swap them for a voucher worth up to £150.

However, the retailer is currently only offering trade-ins on five of its pushchairs and each one will get a different voucher

These are the pushchairs the store will accept and how much you could get:

  • Ocarro – £150 (RRP starting from £629)
  • Strada – £125 (RRP starting from £749)
  • Airo – £100 (RRP starting from £149)
  • Flip XT2 – £75 (RRP starting from £549)
  • Flip XT3 – £75 (RRP starting from £579)

If customers have a carrycot that comes with the pram, you can trade this in for an additional £10.

You don't need to have purchased the pushchair from Mamas & Papas as long as it is one of the above models.

The condition of the pushchair will determine how much money will be put on the voucher.

For example, your pushchair should still fold and stay in place, the brakes should work, the fabrics should be in good condition and the seat should move the way it should do.

Shoppers who have previously purchased a pram from the retailer can book an appointment online via this link:

You'll then need to take your old pram to one of 20 participating Mamas & Papas stores.

Your pushchair will then be reviewed before you receive the voucher – bear in mind that you may not get a voucher if the item is in really bad condition.

Once received, your voucher will be valid for two years and can be spent online and in any Mamas & Papas store.

Here are the stores where you'll be able to book an appointment:

  • Birmingham
  • Cardiff
  • Croydon
  • Edinburgh
  • Fareham
  • Farnborough
  • Gateshead
  • Glasgow
  • Hull
  • Huddersfield Outlet
  • Leeds
  • Liverpool
  • Nottingham
  • Southampton
  • Stockton
  • Stratford
  • Swindon
  • Thurrock
  • Trafford
  • White City

Mamas & Papas isn't the only store offering trade-ins.

Currys allows shoppers to swap in old devices, that are still in good condition, for cash.

You can get an instant valuation online and then you'll be able to bring your item into store.

You'll then be given a gift card to use at Curry's.

Clothing stores also have schemes that let you recycle clothes.

PrettyLittleThing and Boohoo shoppers can get money off new items when they trade in old purchases.

You'll just need to download the reGAIN app.

Hand in a full bag of unwanted clothes from any brand at the tills in the store and you can get a voucher giving you £5 off when you spend at least £25.

Donate a piece of M&S-branded clothing (exclusions include swimwear and underwear) or an item of soft furnishings to an Oxfam charity shop to earn a voucher that gets you £5 off a £35 spend on full-price items at the department store.

If you have something that you no longer use, but aren't sure if the shop you bought it from offers swap schemes, it's always worth asking.

If not, you could sell it on secondhand sites like Vinted, eBay and Depop.
