Build-A-Bear bringing back ‘Pay Your Age’ Day with changes after chaos last year


Build-A-Bear has announced the return of its “Pay Your Age” promotion but with some limits to avoid the issues they encounter last year.

The sale last year led to safety concerns at stores around the country as parents and kids were stuck in hours-long waits with some stores closing.

This year, the deal will be available to only 200,000 people. In order to enter, adults must become a Bonus Club member and fill out a birthday profile.

Those selected will receive a ticket from Build-A-Bear which allows them to come into a store and get up to two bears for the deal.

The winning tickets will be valid for a three-day window – June 24-26 or June 26-28.

Children up to age 23 months will pay $1. Anyone older will pay whatever their age is in years.

Registration is open through June 16. To register and for more information, click here.
