WAYNE, N.J., Oct. 27, 2010 -- Toys"R"Us, Inc. today announced that new and current members of its popular loyalty program, Rewards"R"Us®, can earn 10 percent back on purchases made in its stores and online this Christmas season. Members can take advantage of this offer by showing their loyalty card when making qualifying purchases* at any Toys"R"Us® and Babies"R"Us® store nationwide or entering their loyalty number online at Toysrus.com beginning this Sunday, October 31 through Christmas Eve. Customers, who are not already enrolled in Rewards"R"Us, can sign up for the complimentary program at any "R"Us® store or online to begin reaping the enhanced rewards.
"Members of our loyalty program enjoy exclusive deals and special perks every day, and we're pleased to offer them our biggest reward offer yet at the time of year when we know they are doing the most shopping with us," said Greg Ahearn, Senior Vice President, Marketing and e-commerce, Toys"R"Us, Inc. "In addition to the incredible deals that customers can expect from us all season long, we're tripling our usual rewards offer to give customers the opportunity to earn money back for post-holiday purchases."
Rewards"R"Us is open to anyone with no credit approval required. Members have the flexibility to make purchases using any payment method, including the credit card of their choice, allowing them to earn not only "R"Us Rewards but also any of the usual rewards offered by their credit card company, such as airline miles and hotel points.
The 10 percent back bonus amps up the program's usual offering of $5 "R"Us Dollars for every $150 spent during select earning periods, providing members the opportunity to earn triple rewards during the holiday shopping season. And, Rewards"R"Us members will be invited to attend exclusive Member Shopping Events, during which they will have special access to in-store sales. They are also among the first to be notified when "R"Us stores receive shipments of in-demand items.
This holiday, Rewards"R"Us members will earn 10 percent back in "R"Us Dollars for every dollar spent** on qualifying purchases in Toys"R"Us or Babies"R"Us stores nationwide or online at Toysrus.com. All members have to do is make sure their Rewards"R"Us card is scanned each time they make a purchase. "R"Us Dollars will be sent to customers by e-mail post-Christmas and can be used toward savings on future purchases made in-store.
Becoming a Rewards"R"Us member is free, and customers can sign up at any "R"Us store nationwide or at Toysrus.com/Rewards. Once enrolled, members can begin taking advantage of a variety of exclusive benefits and promotions, including:
