For example, if $100 is loaded onto the V.I.B. card, "R"Us will contribute $10, for a total of $110.

How do gift-givers use a Baby Registry to add funds to a V.I.B. card?
Gift-givers can add funds to a registered Mom's V.I.B. card in store or online at Babiesrus.com. To add funds in-store, obtain a registry printout and a Team Member can complete the transaction at the register. To add funds online, gift-givers simply add the V.I.B. card to the cart from your Baby Registry, select the dollar amount to be added, and proceed through checkout.

How much money can gift-givers add to a V.I.B. Card?
There is no limit to how much a gift giver can add to your V.I.B. Card. However, the V.I.B. card can hold only a maximum balance of $1,800 from gift-giver or cardholder contributions at any given time.
