In anticipation of the holiday season, Toys “R” Us (TRU), Inc., announced today its Christmas Savers Club program, which can help members start saving for holiday gifts. After adding as little as $1 during registration, members of the free program receive a card that acts as a pseudo-savings account for future Toys “R” Us and Babies “R” Us purchases.
Funds added to the card, which has a cap of $2,500 each, can also earn a one-time, 3-percent bonus if added to the card before Oct. 16. With this bonus, a card with the maximum amount of funds can be awarded an additional $75. The card may be used after the holiday season; however, the 3-percent bonus is only granted once. Lost cards can be replaced if either the card number or deposit receipts are available. The initial registration packet includes a pouch for storing receipts.
