Build-A-Bear® Bonus Club Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Build-A-Bear Bonus Club?

The Build-A-Bear Bonus Club is a fun way for Guests to unlock special perks and exclusive offers! Members earn one point for every dollar spent (before tax, after discounts) in participating U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico Build-A-Bear Workshop locations or online at buildabear.com.

Members earn points that convert to Reward Certificates. Reward Certificates are provided after every 100 points earned.

Is there a membership fee?

No, becoming a Build-A-Bear Bonus Club member is free.

How do I earn points?

When shopping in store, give your phone number, email address or account number to your sales associate.

When shopping online, sign in or enter your Bonus Club account number at checkout.

Points will be awarded for every qualifying purchase. Qualifying purchases for which points can be awarded include all purchases of regular and sale items, as well as purchases of gift cards and e-gift cards from participating Build-A-Bear Workshop retail stores or online at www.buildabear.com. Points are not awarded for gift card redemptions.

Members may also earn points on non-purchase activities pursuant to the terms and conditions governing those activities.

No, we require an email address to join the Build-A-Bear™ Bonus Club because your Reward Certificates are issued via email.

Transactions will take 24-48 hours to post to your account.

What can I buy with my Reward Certificates?
