Build-A-Bear's 'Pay Your Age' promo is back - with limits

First, make sure you're a member of the Build-A-Bear Bonus Club.

Build-A-Bear Workshop is bringing back its Pay Your Age promotion, but the company is putting in safeguards to prevent having extremely long lines and angry customers.

Up to two people can use the ticket to pay their age for a new plush toy.

The sale allows customers to buy a stuffed animal for the same price as their age.

This year the St. Louis company is limiting the promotion to 200,000 tickets in the U.S., Canada and the United Kingdom from June 24-28.

Most furry friends available for purchase are included with the ticket, with some exclusions.

Here's how it works: 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 win will find out via email around June 21, according to Build-A-Bear. Redemption period runs from June 24-28.

In the "frequently asked questions" section of the website, the company acknowledged changes in this year's event.

Build-A-Bear ended up issuing an apology and giving out vouchers to those who were unable to get into the insanely crowded stores. "We have closed lines in our USA stores".
