Hottest Build-A-Bear Workshop Deal EVER! Pay Your Age for ANY Furry Friend on July 12th Only

Hip2Save may earn a small commission via affiliate links in this post. Read our full disclosure policy here.

On July 12th only, head into Build-A-Bear Workshop where Bonus Club members (free to join) can enjoy a Pay Your Age Promotion where you can pick out any Furry Friend for the price of your kiddos age (minimum $1)!

Note that you must be 18 years old or older to sign up but your children under 18 are not required to sign up for the Bonus Club. They only need to accompany a Bonus Club Member.

What happens if you come with lots of kiddos?

As long as you are a Bonus Club Member, you may pay the age of any and all children who are with you in the store. There is a limit of one furry friend per guest who is present in the store on July 12th.

This is a HOT HOT promotion if you have little ones! For example, if you take a 3-year-old AND 4-year old on this day, you’ll pay only $7 total for TWO furry friends. How cool is that?!

What if your age is higher than the price of the furry friend you want to purchase?

On July 12th, no in-store guest will be a day over 29 years old—meaning that no matter your age, you will pay no more than $29 (plus tax) for any furry friend in stock in the store.

Don’t want to wait in line to stuff your bear that day?

You can pay your age for an unstuffed furry friend on July 12th and come back to have the full Build-A-Bear Workshop experience at a later date. However, Pokémon plush may not be purchased unstuffed.

No vouchers or rainchecks will be given so shop early for the best selection! And keep in mind that outfits and accessories are sold separately.

    I was told by an employee at our local ammusment park (Kings Island) build a bear was also participating :). The employee suggested if you have a pass head there. they open 30min. before the malls and are expecting less of a crowd :).

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      SWEET! Thanks for the helpful tip!

    • Melissa

      No way! I was wondering if they would be doing it at the Build a Bear at Kings Island! Might have to go to that one, instead of the one in Beavercreek.

  2. Sara

    Does anyone know if there any way to get this offer online?

    • nkis

      unfortunately, the online website says it’s in store only.

  3. Rhett mommy

    I signed up as a bonus club member. Is there a coupon they will be sending me or do I just give my email/phone number?

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      You can just give them your email address or phone number associated with your account! 🙂

  4. Jessica

    Once the build a Bear is stuffed, is it sewn closed? Just wondering if my littlest will be pulling all the stuffing out once we get it home 😂

    • ros

      its closed very well. the stuffing wont get out. 🙂

      • Jessica


    • Karen Lynn

      They stuff it closed very well, but if it does open up because it is well loved you can take it back and get more stuffing and they will resew it. Or at least our does.

    If anyone has a Gymboree parents magazine I will pay for postage and a cup of coffee if you mail it to me 😍 having a boy next week and need to get him some things ! Thank you

    • H

      I may have one- let me look when I get home. Please feel free to remind me if I forget, lol.
      Congrats on your baby next week!

    • mac

      If you just need a coupon someone can just email the number under the bar code. They can type it in at the store or you can use it online. So no postage needed.

    • Julie

      I think I have one I will check

    • Elizabeth Bennett

      I have a coupon. Is that what you are looking for? I can email you the code.

  6. Heather

    ***gymboree 20% coupon from the parents magazine

  7. Sue

    Wow! lots of Beavercreek locals use this site.

  8. Jiya

    This is my first time going to such an event at Build a Bear. Do you have to go really early or going in the evening would work? Thanks!!

    • Laina

      this is the first time they are having this event, so no one knows

    • 50ShadesofLipstick

      Safe to assume that lines will be crazy and they may run out of stock pretty early…besides in the evening, you’ll have ppl coming after work so it might be even more crowded. If you’re gonna go, then I’d aim to be among the first in line.

  9. Mommyof5

    does anyone know if the little pony and trolls will be included in this sale?

  10. Monica

    How much does it cost to stuff it?

    • Holly (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      It doesn’t cost to stuff it. You would only pay for the bear/character and any accessories you might want.

  11. Pooja Garg

    My daughter already has 3 build a Bears we are going to sit out on this one too crowded and after 5 minutes of playing with any toy my daughter just looses interest

  12. Esme

    I went to mall on Monday and asked if the kiosk build a bear was participating and was told yes and all stuffed bears etc would be included except Pokémon and a new pony that was new addition. My first time so never have purchased will see how it goes!

    • Ann

      Thanks for the info. Since Pokemon is not included, no need to go.

  13. MaaMaaBear

    They have a Teddy Bear Picnic Sale online for two days only, starting today! Select bears are $10! Does anyone know if you can bring these unstuffed into the store to stuff?

    • Stormy Stanford

      Yes ma’am – if you order them online, there is a place somewhere to check “delivered unstuffed”. We’ve done it. I take my receipt in and they do it in person whenever is easiest for you. I’ve done this for gifts…for my kids….it’s easy!

  14. Milka

    Do we as a parent need to purchase something or can you just go in with your kids and they get something and pay for their age?

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      You do not need to make any additional purchases to grab the offer! 🙂

      • Milka

        Thank you!

        • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

          You’re welcome!

  15. MaaMaaBear

    Thanks so much!! I think I’ll spend the $10 and skip the lines! Lol!!!

  16. Marybeth Boyle

    If you are thinking of heading early to your store in the morning, check and see if they are opening earlier for the sale. My local location is opening at 9 instead of the normal hour of 10.

  17. Shannen

    Can you use gift cards with this promotion
