Toys R Us is giving store credit for the full retail price of your used Avent bottles. No proof-of-purchase, receipt, or anything else is required. All you have to do is bring in your bottles and they'll give you a store credit.
Due to concerns over BPA (bisphenol A) found in the bottles, Avent issued a warning. Toys R Us has decided to buy them back in an effort to eliminate these bottles from the market. It's not a recall. The FDA hasn't gotten there yet (although Canada just declared BPA toxic, and Europe did a while ago...).
I know, it sounds to good to be true, but it isn't! I took some back to the Toys R Us in Fayetteville, AR yesterday and walked away with $50 in store credit.
Be thrifty and get some extra funds for Christmas toys (they have a good selection of wood and other eco-friendly toy options) and be green by getting rid of those toxic bottles. What a great Thursday!
