GameStop offers extra rewards in October ahead of holiday season


As the holiday begins to creep closer, GameStop is looking to generate store traffic by unveiling a series of new loyalty incentives during October for PowerUp Rewards program members. The specialty retailer is also offering special financing for new PowerUp Rewards credit cardholders.

In addition to accruing points for purchases and early access to exclusives, PowerUp Rewards Pro shoppers will be able to maximize their loyalty earnings during the month of October, the company said.

“Our 28 million loyal PowerUp Rewards members told us that they wanted more benefits, features and offers,” said Frank Hamlin, chief marketing officer at GameStop. “We have heard them and are pleased to offer them the extra perks they wanted in ways that matter most to them.”

Some of the deals that GameStop is offering to customers during October include the following:

  • Buy any two pre-owned games or accessories and get one free. The Buy 2 Get 1 free offer will now print on the PowerUp Rewards Pro customer’s receipt at time of purchase. The offer is valid for the next transaction and must be used within 90 days.

  • PowerUp Rewards Pro members receive a minimum of $50 in value every month. The offers will be printed and featured in-store, in Game Informer magazine, on GameStop TV and in monthly email communications to members. A coupon is required. Members must access the coupons in their Active Offers.

  • PowerUp Rewards Pro members will continue to receive 10% off the purchase of any pre-owned games and accessories, 10% bonus trade credit on any games and accessory trades, 12 months of the Game Informer magazine.

  • $50 more in credit when trading in a PlayStation Vita, from now until October 31

  • $50 off the purchase of pre-owned smart phones, from October 8-31

Additionally, the PowerUp Rewards Credit Card, which the specialty retailer launched in early September, will provide cardholders with benefits that include promotional financing for larger purchases, online and mobile platform card management and payment services, as well as no annual fee and exclusive offers for savings throughout the year.

PowerUp Rewards points are awarded for purchases and trades and can be redeemed for gaming gear, collectibles and coupons.
