Toys “R” Us

If you’ve been following the news recently, then you probably know that Toys”R”Us is planning on closing its stores across the United States.

At the end of last week, Toys”R”Us announced on its website that people have only until April 15, 2018, to use their 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.

The Federal Trade Commission recently reminded consumers on its website that “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.”
