If you’ve been following the news, you’ve probably seen that the iconic Toys"R"Us is winding down its business operations in the U.S., and closing its stores across the country, including stores in Puerto Rico.

According to Toys"R"Us, you have only until April 21, 2018 to use your Toys"R"Us gifts cards. Advice from Toys"R"Us customer service representatives is to use your gift cards as soon as possible, whether in-store or online. 

Something else to consider, purchases from a company that’s going out of business are usually “final sales.” That means you should choose wisely because you probably won’t be able to return the item for a refund. Even if store credit is an option – you’d want to use that quickly too. If you have questions about refund and return policies, ask before you make any purchase.

In addition, Toys"R"Us says its other customer programs, including Endless Earnings, are being honored until April 21, 2018.

Note: This blog post was updated to reflect the new deadline date of April 21, 2018 to redeem gift cards.
