Bed, bath and beyond will start accepting Toys “R” Us gift cards as part of its “Card Cash” program. This is where gift cards from more than 200 retailers can be turned into store credit. The home goods store said it would accept Toys “R” Us gift cards until Thursday, April 5 at midnight. In order for your gift card to be accepted by the Bed, Bath & Beyond, it must be worth at least $20, and it must not have an expiration date.
