Default Details for Very Important Bear (VIP) Program!

A new articles entry has been added:

Article# 367: Details for Very Important Bear (VIP) Program!

I contacted someone in Build-a-Bear corporate to get the details on the new VIB program that was referenced in the most recent Bearville Times in Build-a-Bearville. Here is what she had to say!

The VIB Subscription will launch on 5/20 in Build-A-Bear Workshop stores and online at buildabear.com.

With a membership, the user will get 5 Bearville Outfitters credits and 5,000 Bear Bills added to their account each month of their membership. PLUS, the ability to customize their backpack as many times as they want throughout their membership – a new function coming to Bearville!


The pricing is below:
$15
12.50£
VIB Subscription - 3 mth
$25
19£
VIB Subscription - 6 mth
$40
30£
VIB Subscription - 12 mth

So the best deal for your money is a 12 month subscription!

At the end of the year your account would have received 60 Bearville Outfitters credits and 60,000 Bear Bills!! That is lots of money to spend in the virtual stores!

I have a question: If your subscription runs out what happens to your backpack? Does it stay customized or go back to orange?

It's possible it might go back to orange. alot of other sites that have items that are only accessible with a paid membership become unusable until you re-new your subscription. Hopefully this won't be the case

thanks for the extra info Justin =0)

No offense. But I think they are charging you a lot for some online things.

I think the VIB is to keep BuildABearVille free. It is an optional service for those that choose it, thus keeping the costs of running the web site at a minimal and to keep Buildabearville free for those who can't become a VIB.

It is sort of like the cub condo. Even if you don't have a furry friend, you can still play on Buildabearville, The cub condo is to thank those who have purchased a furry friend from the BABW.


I am sure it will be a great enhancement and I need to start buttering up my mom now. That gives me a few weeks to do extra around the house and spring it on her slowly. lol
