How Long Do You Have To Use Your Toys R Us Gift Cards?
In case you missed it, Toys R Us is closing all of their US locations.
On Wednesday, March 14, Toys R Us filed a motion to begin closing or liquidating all of their US stores. Back in September 2017, Toys R Us filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy. People are now wondering how long they can use their gift cards for.
A corporate rep for Toys R Us told USA Today that people with gift cards have 30 days to use them.Otherwise, they will be completely worthless and will not be reimbursed. US Senator Charles Schumer is fighting for the company to reimburse outstanding gift cards. But if this goes to the courts, it will most likely lose, just like when this happened with Borders.
If you're looking to spend your gift cards, you know to get their money's worth, Toys R Us still has locations in Poughkeepsie, Middletown, and the Woodbury Commons. The Kingston location was planned to close in April 2018, but that plan will most likely fall through and close when the all the other stores do.
You're probably better off using them sooner, rather than later because there won't be anything good left in the stores as we get closer to the 30-day mark
