Main Event Redeeming Toys “R” Us Gift Cards for $20 in Game Play
Main Event Entertainment announced that starting April 23, guests can bring any unredeemed Toys “R” Us plastic gift card to their favorite Main Event center and exchange it for $20 in game play. Guests can use it to earn points playing in the games gallery featuring more than 100 of the latest interactive video games and redeem them for toys.
Guests will receive one $20 FUNcard, good for game play only, for each Toys “R” Us gift card, regardless of the value remaining on the card. Limit two gift cards redeemed, per person, per day.
“We wanted to take a challenging situation and make it more positive for our guests,” says Brendan Mauri, Senior Director of Marketing at Main Event Entertainment. “We understand that parents and kids all across the country were upset by the closing of one of their favorite retail brands, so we wanted to offer a silver lining to them by turning their expired gift cards into $20 of pure fun.”
All Toys “R” Us gift cards expired on April 21. The retail chain filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in September and is in the midst of a liquidation and asset auction overseen by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Virginia.
Main Event is only offering this fun exchange program through May 31, so be sure to act fast and head into your nearest Main Event center today.
