ROANOKE, Va. - After last year's debacle that was Pay Your Age Day, Build-A-Bear is tweaking the offer in 2019.

Now, rather than simply showing up on a given day and waiting in a massive line, Build-A-Bear has a three-step process for a chance to pay your age for one of the stuffed bears.

The deadline to complete the following three steps is 11:59 p.m. on June 16.

First, make sure you're a member of the Build-A-Bear Bonus Club. The club is free to join

Next, you'll need to complete the new birthday profile, which Build-A-Bear says only takes a minute.

Lastly, once you do all that, you'll be able to enter for a chance to receive a Pay Your Age ticket or even win a birthday party experience valued at $250.

Build-A-Bear plans to award tickets to 200,000 customers across the globe.

Rather than forcing all the tickets to be redeemed on a single day, the winners will have to redeem the offer between June 24 and 28. Guests will be able to make one furry friend per child present, with a limit of two furry friends per ticket.

The 10 lucky individuals who win the birthday party experience,  must redeem the prize in the next 12 months.

So good luck!
