Si has estado siguiendo las noticias, es probable que hayas visto que el ícono de las tiendas de juguetes Toys"R"Us está poniendo fin a sus operaciones comerciales en EE. UU. y cerrando sus tiendas en todo el país, incluso las de Puerto Rico.


Según Toys"R"Us, tienes tiempo hasta el 21 de abril de 2018 para usar tus tarjetas de regalo de Toys"R"Us. El consejo de los representantes del servicio al cliente de Toys"R"Us es que uses tus tarjetas de regalo lo antes posible, ya sea en las tiendas o en internet.


Algo más a tener en cuenta, habitualmente, las compras a una compañía que está cerrando se consideran “ventas finales”. Eso significa que deberías escoger lo que compres atinadamente porque es probable que no puedas devolver el artículo a cambio de un reembolso. Incluso si una de las opciones es obtener un crédito para gastar en la tienda – también te convendría usarlo rápidamente. Si tienes preguntas sobre las políticas de devolución y reembolso, hazlas antes de comprar algo.


Además, Toys"R"Us dice que hasta el 21 de abril de 2018 seguirán en efecto sus otros programas para clientes, incluidos su programa de recompensas y ahorros llamado Endless Earnings.


Para más información, lee Tarjetas de regalo y Ventas de liquidación final por cierre.


Este blog ha sido actualizado para reflejar la nueva fecha límite del 21 de abril de 2018.

Gift card holders SHOULD be primary creditors, since the company has been using their money just like a lender.

They already filed Chapter 11 last year. Gift certificates are not a primary creditor under this chapter. They are now insolvent and the trustee can order that gift certificates will not be honored. So don't complain.

I agree. I just went to use over $120 in gift cards and was declined. This is a debt just like any other, and it should be included in the bankruptcy.

Does a company giving credits have to disclose they are liquidating? Scrivercreek Notebook company is changing real money for products that they collected 6+months ago but didn't fulfill into online credits and putting conditions on their redemption. Is this legal? Many complaints are being filed. Hopefully, you can investigate and shut them down.

You can report a problem you have with a company at The information you give goes into a secure database that law enforcement uses for investigations. The comments you put here on the blog don’t go into the law enforcement database.

What about gift cards for Babies R Us (which is owned by Toys R Us)?

If you want to get good choice of merchandise, you need to use those gift certificates NOW. If you are looking for “bargains “ then wait because there will be markdowns but all sales will be final no returns or credits. Unfortunately there’s too many cheap sales seekers who will find this a problem. I feel more sorry for the workers who besides losing their jobs have to deal with these complaining “customers “

Thank you for the information. Question, is there going to be another store for parents to purchase toys for their children? This is one of the only companies on the West Coast that provides a large stock of items sold inside the store to take children into to choose a real item in person. Can the FTC please explain further the information surrounding ToysRUS not selling the store to pass on the tradition of having toys for the American people available for special occasions, holidays like christmas, and for general use to buy products for newborns. As a Educator it has been a long time friend to the business of Education. Please share with us what changed.

I just don't understand how stores are suppose to be alright, when everything is closing. These employees what are they suppose to do? We, my husband and I, have done everything right, but still owe $16,000 on our house. Being 65 and 67, we will like failures. But we always gave everyone a break. (Roofing & Siding) I pray the employees and consumers can find something good of this.

Do not use gift cards on-line. I entered $125 in gift cards and $75 on a cc to make an online purchase. The cc charged remained pending for a week and then disappeared from my bank statement. Toysrus cancelled my order and took the value of the gift cards with it. Check the web and you'll see this is not an isolated incident and basically a theft scam.

Can the get away with this exact scenario (which I’m currently fighting) legally?? They are still a company that is open and held accountable for their customers protection in these instances surly?!?!

En respuesta a por DO NOT USE ON LINE

I unfortunately made a purchase online using my gift card with a balance of almost $130 and now after a week I get an e-mail that they won’t ship or charge my account until 05/02 and I just went to the store and they said the gift cards have zero balance!!! The store folks were absolutely horrible and didn’t help me at all... granted they are losing their job and all but this is terrible... do you know how this could be solved?

Toys R Us lied about accepting loyalty rewards for an addtional 30 days. Is the FTC going to ensure that restitution is provided to customers as part of the bankrupcy settlement, or are they now totally cool with fraudulent, deceptive and unfair business practices in the marketplace?

According to Toys"R"Us:

  • you can use Toys"R"Us gifts cards until April 21, 2018, and
  • its other customer programs, including Endless Earnings, are being honored until April 21, 2018

You can tell the FTC about a problem you have with a business at

How can I even check the balance in the un used gift cards to fill up the complain, if the #system is down and the customer service doesn’t even pick up the phone?

I need to know the same thing, it says balance $0 on the website but I think I have money on them
May 03, 2018
Does anyone know if the website gift card balance is accurate? Meaning do all of the gift cards say $0.00 on Toy R Us since they aren't accepting? I have cards that say $0 but I believe there is money on them
May 18, 2018
Same thing with our gift cards!! People paid money for the cards, toys r us already has the funds and for them not to honor gift cards is ridiculous!! Can we have a class action suit???

I am in agree with you. I did not see that you could not use the gift card after April 21st until it was too late. There has got to be something that we can do.

All Gift babiesrus gift card holder, file a complaint at the FTC and BBB. If enough people filed complaint things will get done. Done through away your gift and type a complaint.

Same here! If you find some place or way to redeem, let me know!

I just located my gift cards and find it to be unfair that this company is allowed to get away with peoples money. These funds should have been placed in an account for redemption. Movies tickets didn't expire so why should these gift cards expire because you messed up.

Family service member just arrived home and realized he had several gift cards. Is there anything we can do to get redemption?

August 20, 2018
This should not be allowed to happen to the people that bought these cards in good faith from a company that knew it was in financial ruin but sold them anyway. That's no different than putting a check into the bank that you know is NSF on the account its drawn from and receiving cash back on it. What would happen there? Let's keep it real.!!! A crime is a crime. This is big business taking advantage of little America,we the people need to be heard here! People,together we stand,united they fall.
