How do I redeem a gift card? You can redeem gift cards online, in any Build-A-Bear Workshop retail store, or by phone—it’s that easy!

Where can I find my gift card number and PIN? If you have a physical gift card, you’ll find the card number and PIN on the back. The PIN may be covered by a scratch-off coating. Just scratch it off to reveal your PIN.

For e-gift cards, your card number and PIN will be included in the email confirmation that is sent for the e-gift card purchase.

How are physical gift cards shipped? Your gift card will be shipped USPS First-Class Mail, which takes 7-9 days to deliver. If you purchased other items along with your gift card, the card will be shipped separately from the rest of your order, via USPS First-Class Mail, for security purposes.

What if I had my order sent FedEx 2-Day or Next Day? If you had your order shipped using FedEx 2-Day Express or Next Day, we will make sure your gift card goes out with your order and will not be shipped separately.
