The PowerUp rewards program from GameStop is a free service that allows customers to earn points when purchasing or trading items in-store. These points can be redeemed for rewards, such as exclusive merchandise or certificates.
The PowerUp rewards program is free to join, requiring only an email address to sign up and receive a membership card. Once the membership has been activated via the website, rewards points that have been accrued are available for redemption.
Points can be earned by purchasing games, consoles and accessories or through game and console trade-ins. Once enough points have been earned, members have the opportunity to redeem them for items in the Rewards Catalog, which is available online. Points are available 24 to 48 hours after a purchase or trade. Points are not earned when purchasing gift cards or electronic certificates. If there is no account activity for a period of 12 consecutive months, points are liable to expire, and the account may be closed.
While basic membership is free, customers have the opportunity to upgrade to Pro membership for a yearly fee. Pro members are eligible for extra benefits, such as point bonuses and additional entries into giveaway promotions. If Pro membership is not renewed, the account status reverts back to a standard free membership, and perks are discontinued.
