GameStop’s New Rewards System Unveiled

gamestopToday Gamestop has announced their new rewards system, ala a rip off of Best Buy’s reward system. Just late last year Best Buy had started a Gamer’s Rewardzone Club for of course gamers. Instead of the normal 250 points (where 1 point equals a dollar) and a $5 coupon, gamers were getting $10 for ever 150 points. They also started offering coupons and special deals on games. So it seems Gamestop is answering back with their own rip off. In a survey that was sent out to customers who’ve signed up for the company newsletter they were shopping around a new free customer rewards program that would see you earning points for every dollar spent or game traded, which can then be redeemed for various prizes and special benefits. Full Press Release below:
