If you want to enter for a chance to get a ticket and be entered in the grand prize raffle, you'll have to be a Bonus Club member, according to Build-A-Bear.

After last year's debacle that was Pay Your Age Day, Build-A-Bear is tweaking the offer in 2019.

More than 200,000 people are expected to win a Pay Your Age ticket. Once the ticket is in hand, you can redeem them at Build-A-Bear Workshops between June 24 and 28.

You have until June 16 to enter the "Count Your Candles" promotion for a chance to receive a ticket to "Pay Your Age" for a new furry friend or win a birthday party experience.

In the "frequently asked questions" section of the website, the company acknowledged changes in this year's event.

Most furry friends available for purchase are included with the ticket, with some exclusions. Those who entered will receive an email by June 21 on whether they were given a ticket or not.

As part of a separate query, the company noted that while it has taken efforts to guarantee a good customer experience "with minimal wait times", they "do expect higher than normal traffic at the Workshop during this period".

The offer in 2018, let customers buy a bear and pay their current age with a cap at $29.

Last summer, Pay Your Age Day was a one-day event held in U.S., Canadian and U.K. Build-A-Bear stores that ended abruptly due to crowd sizes.
