::Go to Groupon and sign up or log in.

::Click on Wichita, Houston or Tuscon and it will pull up a deal for a $20 voucher to any Build-A-Bear location for only $10. Just click through and purchase this (it is only available today and may be limited in quantity).

::Your Groupon voucher will show up in your account within 24 hours. This Groupon can be used in-store and online, however, it doesn’t apply towards shipping costs, so it would likely be a better deal to use it in-store.

::This Groupon is good at all Build-A-Bear locations. The fine print says Limit One Per Order or visit, but it appears you can purchase multiple vouchers if you’d like to make multiple orders or in-store visits.

::This Groupon expires March 31, 2011.

Thanks, Steals and Deals!
