Good news, parents. With the Toys ‘R’ Us Christmas Savers Club card, you can earn 3% cash back to spend on toys, clothes and more for the holidays at Toys ‘R’ Us, Toys ‘R’ Us Express, Babies ‘R’ Us, and the store’s respective websites.

If you plan to do a lot of shopping at Toys ‘R’ Us or Babies ‘R’ Us this holiday season, this savings program will yield a greater return than many bank or online savings accounts.

Overview

Following in the footsteps of Sears and K-Mart, Toys ‘R’ Us has introduced a Christmas Savers Club card to help you save money for the holidays.

This card offers a 3% bonus for any money you’ve placed on the card by October 16. You can begin using the card for your holiday shopping on October 31.

How This Card Works

Like the Sears Christmas Club card, this card permits shoppers to save money to use for the holidays.

Simply add funds to the Christmas Savers Club card at any Toys ‘R’ Us or Toys ‘R’ Us Express location. You can open a Toys ‘R’ Us Christmas Savers Club card with as little as $1.

Any money you’ve placed on the card by October 16 will receive a 3% bonus, up to $75. You can store as much as $2,500 on the card.

You can begin using the card at Toys ‘R’ Us and some of its affiliates on October 31. After October 31, you can also continue to add funds to the card like a regular gift card — but you won’t receive a bonus for this money.

Where Can I Use My Christmas Saver Club Card

You can use your Christmas Saver Club card at:

There is no activation fee, annual fee, penalties for non-use or expiration date on the card.

Rewards and Benefits

You will get a 3% cash bonus for every dollar you place on the card, up to a $75 value.

The Toys ‘R’ Us Christmas Savers Club card offers a few other unique benefits. You can go online to download the savings tracker and keep track of the money you load onto the card. When you sign up for the card, you’ll also receive a hard copy savings tracker and envelope to keep all your deposit receipts.

If you lose your Christmas Savers Club card, but still have your account number, you can call to receive a new card.

Additionally, although the Christmas Savers Club is designed to help shoppers save for the holidays. If you face financial hardship or special circumstances, you can call Toys ‘R’ Us customer service at 1-800-TOYS-R-US and ask to access funds prior to October 31.
