Accumulation of Points
- Points cannot be accumulated on purchases made before a Member initiates an Account and Members cannot view the accumulation of their points or redeem their points for rewards until the online Account is fully set up at www.PowerUpRewards.com.
- Members accumulate points for every $1 spent on any eligible product purchase when a Member's account number is provided at time of purchase of eligible products in store or online. Purchases accumulate points at the following rates, subject to change without notice:
- 10 points will be accumulated for every dollar spent, excluding the purchase of GameStop gift cards.
- Select other products may, at any or all times, accumulate lower or zero point values at GameStop's sole discretion.
- At this time, non-Pro Members will not accumulate points for trade-in credit.
- The dollar amount of any eligible product purchased will be rounded up to the nearest whole dollar before accumulated points are calculated.
- Points will post to a Member's Account within approximately 24-48 hours from the time of in-store purchase. No adjustments to a Member's Account will be made after 30 days from the actual purchase date, except at GameStop's sole discretion.
- Point calculations are based upon dollars spent at checkout on eligible purchases less taxes, fees, delivery charges, rebates, or other excluded charges.
- Members do not accumulate points for the amount of any coupons redeemed or discounts applied or other ineligible tender type. When Members return products to the store, points previously posted to a Member's Account for that purchase will be deducted from the Member's Account. Other exclusions and limitations may apply.
- Except as may be required by law, in the event that a Member returns merchandise that was partially or wholly paid for with a coupon(s), the coupon(s) and points used in connection with the purchase will not be reissued.
- PowerUp Rewards points are valid for one year from date of posting to the Member's Account provided the Member remains active in the Program. "Active" is defined as making at least one purchase or trade in every 12-month period. If at least one qualifying purchase or trade is made every 12 months, the expiration date of the accumulated points is extended for 12 months from the date of the qualifying purchase. If a qualifying purchase is not made within 12 months, all accumulated points shall be forfeited.
Account Activity Statement
- Members are responsible for ensuring that their points are properly credited. If proper credit does not appear on the Member's activity statement, the Member should contact Customer Service within 30 days of the purchase.
PowerUp Rewards Pro® Membership
- At time of enrollment, or at any time after initial enrollment, a Member may purchase a PowerUp Rewards Pro Membership ("Pro Member" or "Pro Membership") in store. Purchase price and terms may vary and are subject to such other and further T&C as may be communicated at the time of purchase. Subject to change without notice, a Pro Member is entitled to the following benefits commencing immediately following the purchase of the Pro Membership:
- 10% bonus trade-in credit for 1 year;
- 10% off previously-owned games and accessories for 1 year;
- A 12-month subscription to Game Informer magazine; and
- Periodic and/or temporary programs that may increase the amount of points awarded to a Pro Member.
- A Pro Member may cancel their Membership and receive a full refund within 7 days of purchase of the Membership, subject to certain conditions. Upon returning the Pro Membership materials, the Pro Membership will be downgraded to the basic PowerUp Rewards (non-Pro Membership). A Member may cancel his or her Pro Membership at any time by notifying Customer Service by mail, email or telephone. GameStop, in its sole discretion reserves the right to cancel an individual Pro Membership by refunding the purchase price. Cancellation will result in the loss of any bonus points accumulated during the Pro Membership.
- In the event a Pro Member does not pay to renew their Membership after the 1-year period, the Member's Account will be downgraded to the basic PowerUp Rewards Membership. Downgrade for failure to renew will not result in the loss of accumulated points or applicable expiration dates.
Redemption of Points and Point Management Preferences
- Points may be redeemed for reward certificates of $5, $10, $15 each. The timing of when reward certificates are issued is governed by the reward preferences a Member sets and their point balance. A Member may elect to save or “stockpile” their points to use in the Rewards Catalog, or to have their points auto-redeemed for reward certificates. This reward preference can be managed from the Member’s dashboard once they log in at www.PowerUpRewards.com.
- Basic Members that do not manually select a reward preference will by default be set to receive an auto-issued $5 reward certificate. Pro Members that do not manually select a preference will by default be set to save or “stockpile” their points. All settings that have been manually managed by the Member, will persist when a membership status changes between Basic and Pro. If a Pro member’s preference is not manually selected, and a default is used, the default setting will adjust to an auto-issued $5 reward certificate, should a Pro Member downgrade to Basic status.
- For the current Rewards Catalog, Members should log on to the Member website at www.PowerUpRewards.com. The Rewards Catalog is subject to change at any time without notice in GameStop’s sole discretion. GameStop also reserves the right to make different offers to different members at different points in time.
- GameStop may, from time to time, elect to automatically redeem a member’s points for a particular reward selected by GameStop from the then current Rewards Catalog.
- Reward certificate and offer expiration dates are as listed on each certificate or offer.
- GameStop is not responsible for communications, including reward certificate and/or offer communications, lost due to change of contact information.
- Members redeeming points for merchandise outside of GameStop stores will receive an email confirmation including instructions for redemption. Partner coupons are provided by and are the responsibility of the partner. GameStop assumes no responsibility for their continued validity or the continued operation of the partner.
- Members redeeming points for a reward certificate for use at GameStop stores must present the reward certificate along with valid proof of identification at time of use.
- Reward certificates may be used in conjunction with most other discounts, but the total discounts may not exceed the purchase amount. Limit of three (3) of any coupon, discount, or other offer per person, per account, per day. Reward certificates of the same value are not stackable.
