Count Your Candles: Pay Your Age
Exclusively for every youngsters birthday the Count Your Candles promotion allows Bonus Club Members to bring their child into any store during their birthday month to make their very own special Birthday Bear. The best part you just need to 'pay their age' for it. For example, a child turning 5 will just pay $5 for their new friend. But this is just the beginning because you will also score an extra special birthday heart and when you ring that birthday bell you will get a cool hat, sticker, and your picture taken with the birthday cake prop, how fun!

Build-a-Bear loves bringing kids into their store so much they often run in-store special events*, usually exclusively for Bonus Club Members, and the best part they are always free. There are also special weekend appearances by mascot Bearemy in December and a FREE in-store Christmas scavenger hunt all season long! Click here* for the latest in-store events.
Build-a-Bear Gift Card Offers
If you are a regular spender at Build-a-Bear or are planning a big purchase gift cards are the way to save some extra cash and make that next bear even cheaper.
If you're spending $25 or more online at Build-a-Bear you will be offered the chance to add a $10 gift card for just $5 at the checkout.
Costco* also sells a great bundle with $100 (4 x $25 cards) worth of Build-a-Bear e-gift cards* for $69.99, so you're saving yourself 30%. If you aren't a Costco member then you will incur a 4% charge which will make your total purchase just a bit higher.
Costco's are e-cards so you receive them via email rather than a physical card, and you can either use them online or print them off to use them in-store. They come as four $25 vouchers so that you can split them up for separate gifts or occasions and the best part you could even gift 4 separate kids this holiday season.
