Build-A-Bear Pay Your Age Event Returns
But this year, the process is little different.
The iconic Build-A-Bear is giving the Pay Your Age event another go round this year. Last year the event was, well, overwhelming with many young Build-A-Bear fans and their parents being turned away due to the extreme turnout. With the popularity of the event now known, Build-A-Bear is doing things a little different this year for it's fans.
The Pay Your Age event is part of the Count Your Candles birthday program at Build-A-Bear Workshop. To kick off the second year of Count Your Candles, the company has created the Count Your Candles Sweepstakes for the chance to participate in a limited ticket offer event to the Pay Your Age event happening June 24-28, and the chance to win a birthday party experience valued at $250.
So, how does it work? Now through Sunday, June 16, members of the Build-A-Bear Bonus Club rewards program that complete a birthday profile in their online account can enter the Count Your Candles Sweepstakes and Pay Your Age limited ticket offer. Those who are not yet Bonus Club members can sign up for the program and complete a birthday profile in order to enter the Count Your Candles sweepstakes and Pay Your Age limited ticket offer, redeemable in stores only.
More than 200,000 Build-A-Bear fans around the world are expected to receive a Pay Your Age limited ticket — so there are plenty of bears to go around. Those who win a ticket can visit a Build-A-Bear Workshop during one of two redemption periods in the week of June 24 through 28 and make one furry friend per child present, limit two furry friends per ticket. So if your child is 3, he or she can build a bear for $3, age 6, $6 and so on. Additionally, 10 guests will win the Count Your Candles Sweepstakes grand prize of a birthday party experience to use any time in the next twelve months valued up to $250.
