If you are a GameStop PowerUp Rewards Member, go to the PowerUp Rewards site and one of the currently active offers is a "Buy 2, Get 1 Free" coupon.

Purchase Two Pre-owned Video Games and Get One Pre-owned Game of Equal or Lesser Price Free

Limit 1 coupon per customer. Coupon must be surrendered upon use. Free Game must be of equal or lesser value. Not valid with any other offer. Selection may vary by store. While supplies last. No substitutions will be made. Valid on in-store and in-stock items only. Not redeemable for cash. Offer valid in the United States only. Offer valid through 8/31/10.


Coupons look to be unique to each account, or else I'd post it.

Edit: Coupons might only show for certain members, so I guess it's "YMMV".
Edit 2: PowerUp Rewards program may not be available in your area yet. :(

Well yeah, that's one of the incentives of signing up. It says it in the brochure.

He said hopes up only to be dashed meaning he didn't want to sign up for their rewards card, he just wanted to print off a coupon and go.

I never got a brochure, and my active offers never updated until today. I've been a PowerUp Member since early June.

The program is active here in Oklahoma.

All rewards programs are "pretty stupid", but considering how it works (on trade-ins and buying stuff) you can make out with some serious rewards points. I'd say it's better than EDGE because you couldn't get free stuff with an EDGE card.

Not to worry, when it rolls out in your area they will convert your EDGE card subscription into a PowerUp Rewards card for free, since the PUR program is flat out replacing EDGE soon.

When I went to one last weekend, the sales guy behind the counter was asking me if I was aware of it because it was going to be starting soon. I live in Georgia, about 30 minutes NW of Midtown Atlanta.

Hey guys, if you're really that bummed out about not getting in on this deal, GS.com is still running the 25% off used games until the end of the month...that combined with your edge card makes a 32.5% discount, which is only about .8% away from getting b2g1...and you can buy as often as youu want until the sale is up, and you're not forced to buy any certain amount of games...

just my 2 cents...

I heard from a GS manager that the power rewards will replace the Edge card. This is just the trial run.

B2G1 combines with edge card as well, so it's 7.5% away from a B2G1. Additionally the 25% off is only good on games $19.99 and up.

Why don't they just augment the Edge membership to include all these menial Power Rewards trappings?

That's exactly what it is. All these questions pop up every time someone mentions PowerUp. Nothing about the EDGE system changes, you just get points on transactions now. They give you a new card and a B2G1 for signing up and that's it. Like any store's reward program, it's expensive and unless you spend a ton of money at Gamestop, it's not really something you're missing out on, either. But, still, free is free and I already got a $5-off coupon from it so there's no complaints, I guess.

So instead of getting actual $ amounts for traded in games, they are going to point system???

No. You get dollar amounts for your trade-ins, but on top of that you get "reward points" for each dollar amount you trade-in. For purely example purposes (this does not reflect GS Rewards whatsoever), say you trade in a $25 game. You get the $25 credit, as well as 2500 reward points to do with whatever you please.

No. You get the dollar amounts, you just accumulate points also which you then can get free stuff from the rewards website.

For example, right now I have 7500 points. I can't remember the points per dollar, but it is 10 or 20. You also get points for trading in.

1000 more points ($100? maybe? $50?) and I can turn in the points for a Wii perfect shot if I want.

500 more points I can get a coupon for $10 off any game.

15000 total points and I can pick out any strategy guide for any game.

It doesn't affect anything it is just a new perk to getting the edge card.

The Power Up thing is already in the system for the most part, since I believe my last trade transaction said something like 'Power Up points amount blah blah blah' on the bottom of the receipt.

I am starting to hate these damn "reward" cards. I already have 5 on my key ring (Borders, CVS, Toys'r'us, Best Buy, Hot Topics.) And yes I know I can just give them my phone number or e-mail but that is even more of a pain in the ass than scanning the card.

:lol::lol::applause: I remarked to a couple of cashiers already that I have enough of these damned cards. Mind ya, I don't even keep half of the ones I have in my wallet and when I sold my old car I left my Petsmart or whatever one on the keychain.
