Build-A-Bear: FREE Shipping on ANY Order + $7 off $10 Coupon Code=$3 Bears & More!

UPDATE: The Promo code 94477 is NOT working anymore and will not take off the $7! They must have changed this since I posted this deal because it had been working for awhile! Sorry!

Build-A-Bear is offering up FREE standard shipping today, 11/12 ONLY! Plus, you can use coupon code 94477 to receive $7 off the purchase of $10 or more! You can snag these $10 bears for just $3 shipped after the coupon code! Or you can snag $10 worth of accessories and/or clothing and again, you'll only pay $3 shipped after the coupon code!

This is a very sweet deal and I would jump on it while you can! I'm guessing most of the $10 or less items will sell out quit quickly! Let us know what you score!

Thanks so much!! I bought 2 BABs last week at the store and today I was able to purchase an outfit. I also had an old gift card to add to it making the cost $0 without making a trip to the mall!!

Thanks so much!! Just got 2 - one for $5 OOP and the other for $3 OOP. My boys will LOVE going there to have them stuffed. I had trouble with firefox with errors on the page - so I switched to IE and was able to check out. Thanks again!!

Got 2 of the 6" bears for $3 total. Nice for stocking stuffers. Thanks!

Anonymous said...

does anyone know if the bear comes stuffed or if you go to build a bear to stuff it yourself. I thought it would come "empty" but now I can't find anything on the site saying that. thanks!

I got two of the mini furry pals for my daughter to put in her stocking. Thanks!!

Tangela said...

You can request in the comment section for the animal to come unstuffed and you can bring it to the store to stuff for free.

Thanks! I got 5 unstuffed bears and 5 birthday T-shirts for $30! This is going to be an awesome birthday party for my 3 year old! Just make some cupcakes and then we are done!

It is going slow and having a hard time processing my order. Hopefully it works! What a great deal. I am going to do it 4 times and get a bear and an outfit for both of my kids. So fun!!

E said...

$3.18 for a mini tiger and mini bear, SO cute!!

Anonymous said...

I am also having a hard time checking out. How do you change from IE to Firefox or the other way around?

Emily said...

There must be a lot of traffic on the site b/c my order is processing slowwww! I got the light colored bear for $3.15 - YAY!

Anonymous said...

I keep getting errors at checkout. The site must be crazy.

Marci said...

THANK YOU!!! I got animals for 2 of my 3 kids with the last deal and didn't want to have to pay full price for the 3rd one. I got her a cat for only $7.56 shipped! You're the best :-)!!!

Can you do this more than once?

E said...

I was only able to check out through safari and not FF, didn't try IE

Anonymous said...

Just a heads up, when they had the $5 bear promotion I requested on two seperate orders in the comment section that the bears arrive unstuffed.
One order did, one order did not.
I was ok with it, but just a heads up that I am sure with the volume of orders human error can occur.

Lorianne said...

Sweet I just ordered 3 bears and 3 outfits!! So perfect for Christmas!!! Thank you!!!

Jess said...

I didn't really want to get my son another stuffed animal that would never get played with, but after looking around I was able to find a frosty the snowman dvd for $3 after the code :)

Anonymous said...

THANK YOU, yet again! I got a b-day present for my godson for $3. Wow - you rock!

Jeanette said...

From the Chipmunks - I got Simon and a Santa Hat for $4.50 ; then again for Theodore and a Santa Hat for $4.50! My son will love these!

Anonymous said...

Is anyone SURE that we can bring an unstuffed bear in and get it filled for free? I can't find anything about it on the website. Had anyone done this yet?

teeniebeenie6 said...

Thanks!! I got a camo tent for my kids to use with all their toys. They are going to be hyped.

Anonymous said...

Now I'm trying to order 2 for my nieces and I keep getting error codes when I try to place the order. I guess they're getting slammed!

Rosie said...

thanks so much! My mom was just talking about taking my daughter to BAB before we move across the country. I'll either get a bear or an outfit. =) And the site must be swamped... its very slow.

Has anyone received their bears yet from the deal that was posted a few weeks back?

Anonymous said...

Im so excited! I was able to get the little beauty kit my daughter has been eyeing for a long time now for 3 bucks! WOOHOO!!!

christi said...

I wish my kids didn't like it so much.
Thank God for the coupons.

do these bears come stuffed?

Rita said...

Placed an order, used the code and a gift card I had - charged me full price anyway. I was on hold for customer service for 45 got disconnected and now they say the line is down call back later.

Been trying for over a hour. Site is so slow.

I received a receipt in my inbox for my order but the website hasn't shown that I ordered it yet. haha

Guy, Do you have any gift suggestions for a toddler? I'm yet to buy a gift got my friend's daughter.

Keep getting error messages.

I have heard there's a place to put unstuffed in a "note" field or special instuctions so look for that. hope that helps

Kristin from Couponing to Disney said...

Ugh this is so irritating! I really want to order the Sleeping Beauty dress for my daughter. Sigh.

Anonymous said...

I keep getting errors. Everyone must be ordering and crashing the site. 800 number says it is not accepting calls

Anonymous said...

2 hours of trying, an hour on the phone with customer service, an no bears. This is the second time (cyber monday the first) that I've spent several hours trying to get one of these bears. In all honesty sometimes the deals just aren't worth it. I'll gladly pay the 10 bucks not to have to listen to their annoying build a bear music.

Melissa G. said...

Yay! Thank you for sharing this! I was kind of sad i missed the last deal and here this one comes and is even better! I got the brown bear for my little boy.

Colette said...

I was charged the full price too after it showed the code taking my purchase down to $3.26. My purchase price went back up to $10.68. Sent them an email since I can't get through the phone lines. I give up.

Michelle said...

Is the site down? I got my stuff in my cart then there was an error! grrr

christy said...

This would be a sweet deal...but I can't seem to get to the final ordering page. It errors out every time : (

Anonymous said...

Just FYI, the grandparents sent both grandkids an outfit earlier this month for Christmas present from buildabear.com. Both outfits came packaged individually and contained coupons! It was a great treat-- got a $7 off $10 Q packed in with each outfit :) :)

Bonnie said...

just finish and it never took off the $7! bummer....and for some reason i can't call the 877 number on my cell. I give up.... $10 isn't that bad.

Melody said...

It charged me the full amount and I replied to the email confirmation I got. Hope someone corrects this!

Michelle said...

this is nuts i have 3 windows opened trying to place one order!!

Anonymous said...

Finally I got my order go through. It took me almost 1 hour to order one light color bear for $3.15. Sweet! Thanks.

Lisa said...

After trying for 15 minutes to complete my order, I gave up. Got to the part of applying the code and it wouldn't take off the $7. Not worth my time.

Anonymous said...

this site is soooooo sloooooow! I've been trying to check out for over 30 min now

Natalie said...

I just gi=ot off the phone with customer service and she said the $7 discount code can't be combined with the free shipping offer. I placed my order for $3+ and when I got my order confirmation it was for $10.60. She said that she can't change it and that if anyone was able to combine the freeship with the other code, she would be surprised. Beware!

Janae said...

FYI- There is a "note" when you go to checkout under the promo code entry that the $7 off $10 is not valid on the web.... They must have changed the online site to stop accepting the code.

Anonymous said...

My first order for accessories went through with free ship. Now a second order is not. Its been 3 hours and all I have are accessories. This is not worth my time and I will be returning the order that came through.

Michelle said...

promo code not available on the web peace out

when I tried to use the 94477 code it came back saying "NOTE: THE $7 off $10 PROMO IS NOT GOOD ON THE WEB"...not sure where else it would be good.

Am I doing something wrong, the code says not valid on a web purchase!!

Anonymous said...

I just got the same code Janae got at checkout. I tried the code anyway and it gave me an error page and then wouldn't let me go back to my order. Looks like they wised up and are now not letting people use the code. Hopefully those that ordered earlier won't be charged back the $7. I was ordering a baby gift for my new neice/nephew and was excited to get one for $3 because my husband is currently unemployed. Thanks for the coupon code...and all of the great deals you post. It's just like couponing..sometimes the deals work out sometimes they don't. Just goes along with getting good deals!

Anonymous said...

This code no longer works. A message that the $7 off $10 purchase is no longer valid on the website comes up now. bummer :-(

Alison said...

I called them and they are not allowing the code today because of the free shipping. You can't get both discounts. Lame!!!

Anonymous said...

Thank you Anon 7:35 AM on the heads up for switching from firefox to IE. I am switching right now since that's all I've had was errors and slowwwwwww loads... We'll see if this speeds it up.

offer not valid on web would have been nice to know that ahead of time!!!!!!!

Build a Bear has changed their website and is not letting you use promo codes, i.e. $7.00 off. They just changed it.

Anonymous said...

I just went to order and it said that the $7 off $10 code is NOT available for use online :(

Tina alabama said...

looks like some got it and when they saw what wewere doing they stopped the offer.. BUMMER it took forever to do my bear now gone Im not doing that..

Anonymous said...

I wonder if the coupon code is valid in the store then? Since I only have the numbers, would they accept that if I just walked in with it memorized? I will wait to hear news on how long this code is valid and if it is indeed valid on a walk-in visit. Hmm not many other options though, since it is not valid on the web. :::shrug:::

Anyone that has an order placed should check their accounts. They billed a lot of people the full price without notification or consent.

They have changed the rules mid-promotion if they are saying that it isn't valid on web orders because I have the 7$ off $10 coupon hard copy, from the build-a-bear B&M and it says right on there that you can use it on a web purchase by entering the 5 digit code (94477). People have been using it online since the promotion started on Dec. 1 with no problems. Furthermore, there is no option for you to cancel the free shipping to be able to use your coupon if the "offers cannot be combined". Just some info if you want to push it and argue, but I filed a dispute.

Just in case you still feel jaded and spiteful at any company that pulls this, ahem, *Fannie May*... I used to head the chargeback department for a third-party processor company and they cost the company $35 a pop. The merchant will have it's account suspended if too many CB's are filed in too short of time. Death by a thousand cuts!

Anonymous said...

Okay that's a "No" to using the coupon numbers in the store without the actual coupon coded paper they had been giving out so I am not going to make that drive. This deal is in my opinion DEAD. :)

On to other deals. Besides, I sank MANY MANY hard earned dollars into build-a-bear items years ago.
I have lived and I am still learning!

I just wrote to build a bear describing how frustrating placing an order is (I wasn't able to place one cyber monday or today, despite hours of trying and call). And how frustrated I am that they falsely advertise promotions and then pull them when demand is high (umm who works in marketing? they should be fired) Who couldn't have seen this coming?. If they can't follow through or have the foresight to think about what it would mean when the post such lucrative deals they shouldn't be in business.

Anonymous said...

It says the the code is no longer valid. I already placed my orders and two charges of 3.22 are pending in my checking account. I wonder if they will honor the charges. I hope they don't turn around and increase the price like fanny mae.

Natalie said...

I cancelled my order because they wouldn't honor the price shown when I checked out. I didn't think it was fair to raise the price after I checked out.

nikki said...

i think you all need to give collin a break. she just gives us the deals as she sees them- which is awesome. its not her fault that build a bear is being stupid with their codes. i think their are several apologies in order.

I would like to say thanks for everything that you do, collin.

Use Code #94475 for $5 off any animal priced $10 or more

kristin m said...

Ugh...I just remembered that I had a coupon for $5 off any animal & I tried to use it online & it said it was overwritten!!!! WTH??? I am so freaking mad! It was the same code as above.....94475

Anonymous said...

I just placed an order using the code #94475 and it took it just fine. It took the $5 off a $10 bear.

ILona said...

Does anyone know if there is a good printable online for $5 off $10 Bear?

Anonymous said...

Nikki- I don't think anyone is mad at Collin, she just posts deals when she finds them (which saves us all a ton and we are very thankful for). We're, ok I can only speak for myself, but I'm annoyed with a build a bear for not having the foresight to anticipate that when they offer a $7 off $10 order and free shipping at the same time people will be excited and order. I wasn't able to order, but for the folks that did, changing prices after orders were placed seems dishonest (and possibly illegal?). If my statement showed a price other then the price I was quoted at checkout I would certainly file a dispute.

Anonymous said...

Thank you anonymous 7:24 pm the code 94475($5 off any animal $10 or more) just worked for me and I was able to order 1 bear with free shipping for $5....YAY!! The system was super fast and it took all of 5 minutes to pick the bear and pay.

Anonymous said...

Nikki, I don't think that any of us are mad at Collin. We are just discussing the mistake the build a bear made and sharing our experiences. It is not like she made up the deal, she just reported it and so she is not responsible if anything bad happens with it.
i am sure we are all thankful for all of the work that she puts in here or else we would not keep checking the site. :)

Tracy said...

yay! ... they shipped all three of my orders for $3.xx .... Thanks hip2save! My sons are very excited :O)
