Toys R Us gift cards are likely to become worthless within weeks.

Toys R Us gift cards are good for next 30 days


Toys R Us gift cards are likely to become worthless within weeks.

The best advice: Spend them immediately, if possible.

Make haste because after the big-box icon of American retail said Thursday that it would close all of its U.S. stores, there's not much time left.

The chain plans to honor gift cards for the next 30 days, Toys R Us spokesperson Taylor O'Donnell told USA TODAY on Thursday in an email.

In bankruptcy, retailers technically don't have to honor gift cards at all. But most ask a bankruptcy court judge for permission to do so — at least for a while. Toys R Us has been honoring gift cards since it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in September. But now that the company has filed to liquidate its U.S. operations, the end is near.
