Make your own bear at Build-A-Bear is offering upset customers $15 vouchers after its Pay Your Age event was cancelled due to overwhelming customer response.
Parents stood in line up to six hours to get a plush toy for the cost of their child’s age. Although the typical prices of the toys, $15-$25, the additional accessories can raise the total to more than $50.
Here’s how to get your voucher.
Here’s what to do:
- Log onto your Build-a-Bear Club account by midnight July 15.
- Click to print or screenshot the voucher.
- Limit one coupon per Bonus Club account.
- Valid in-store purchases only.
The voucher is good through Aug. 31, 2018.
Customers who were in line, but were turned away were given a $15 voucher. Now, customers who avoided the line altogether or otherwise missed the sale go get a $15 voucher.
Build-a-Bear representatives encourage customers to take their time using the vouchers in order to “enable us to better flow traffic to the stores over the next several weeks to avoid long lines and wait times as much as possible.”
