The Build-A-Bear "Pay your Age" promotion is back this year, but without the long lines, crying kids, and angry parents. To get started you need  sign up for the Build-A-Bear Bonus Club rewards program using your email from June 11 through midnight on June 16. The Pay Your Age sale for a plush toy is exactly as it sounds — if your child is 2, parents pay $2, if he or she is 4, parents fork over $4.

According to USA Today: "Once you are enrolled in the rewards program, guests will be notified via email by June 21 if they are among the 200,000 guests in the U.S., U.K. and Canada to receive a "winner" ticket. The 200,000 tickets was how much the company's data showed the company's staff could accommodate. "

Last year the pay your age promotion was held just on one day and stores were overwhelmed with the crowds, some people waited up to seven hours to get a bear. So to avoid the crush of the crowds the promotion this year is being held over  3 day periods from  June 24-26 or June 26-28.  

The Winning Notifications will include a barcode they can print out or take to a Build-A-Bear store on a device to be scanned. When registering for this promotion, parents can use one ticket for up to two children. Good Luck to all the parents trying to score one of these adorable bears! Locally the Build-A-Bear Workshop is in the Miller Hill Mall.
