LEXINGTON, Ky. (WYMT) - The 'Pay Your Age Day' promotion is coming back to Build-A-Bear Workshop this year, but this time around we will see changes.

The promotion allows people to buy a bear for the price of the child's age if you are registered for the Bonus Club.

This year, the company will try to prevent long lines and angry customers. When it tried the promotion last year,  the company eventually had to cut off the lines at all U.S. stores completely due to local authorities' concern for crowds and safety conditions. Those turned away got a $15 voucher for their time, but many were still upset.

This time around, more than 200,000 Bonus Club members can register online to get a limited ticket for a discounted bear.

They will be able to redeem it during two periods from June 24-28.

You can sign up for the promotion here.
