I haven't seen anyone else post this so I thought I'd just mention it since many of us signed up the first day we could last year and our subscription is almost up.

Got an email about a week ago stating that if we renew our Gamer's Club Unlocked membership "before it expires" that we will receive 250 Reward Zone points ($5) for doing so. Effectively making the yearly membership only $10 (an even sweeter deal for those of us paying for the membership with trade in credit). There didn't appear to be a special link or anything like that, and the easiest way to renew would probably be when you are already buying something else (if your membership is almost expired it will prompt the cashier to ask if you would like to renew when you use your RZ card while checking out). Remember to grab a copy of this month's issue when you do!

A nice bonus for singing up for an already great program.

I tried renewing yesterday and the cashier was clueless and told me to go to customer service. I didn't have time but I've got another week or so before it runs out and will be back in there before then.

I renewed the other day, hope I get the 250 points. Does it state how long it will take to get the points because I never got said email.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Did not. Only time frame mentioned was that it had to be before your membership expired. 30 days for points is usually pretty standard, promo points can sometimes take longer.

I renewed mine last weekend (8/25).. it was the usual gaming guy I see all the time. He was looking in the system and didn't see any special way to renew it, so he just signed me up for another year (I wasn't purchasing anything at the time, but knew my membership would expire soon). I went in yesterday to buy something and the gaming guy asked me if I wanted to renew my membership..so apparently, it hasn't updated yet? I'm not sure. I didn't have a problem with my magazines or anything the first time around.. hopefully it updates and continues on without any issues.

If your store has one of the big touchscreen information displays for gaming (my store has it on an endcap), you can search for and print out the slip for GCU renewal to take to the register.

Renewed mine yesterday afternoon, just got an email about 10 minutes ago 'thanking me for reloading.' No mention of 250 points in the email and nothing showing on my account...yet. I'm Premier Silver too so I guess we'll see.

I renewed early, in July, because I didn't want magazines to lapse. I didn't receive any bonus points or even the renewal/sign up coupons I think we are suppose to get.

So maybe the bonus points is a new thing and the coupons were just for the first sign up last year?

Tagged to remind me to look into this. I don't expire until December, but if I can get $5 back for renewing, it's a no-brainer.

Me too, but i checked my current subscription on @gamer site and it doesn't say renew, so I'm worried that it'll start a new subscription, and it'll be a 2 months lapsed. It's not bad since u can go to the store and ask for a copy but it's just a hassle. I hope that's not the case.

Wouldn't surprise me if it wasn't the most efficient process. I signed up in September last year and it took 6-8 weeks to even reflect on my account, let alone to get any coupons or magazines. Of course, that won't stop my sub from expiring in September, so here's hoping they got their shit together.

I called up RZ and told them about the email and that I just renewed 2 days ago. Just wanted my account noted just in case the system does not automatically give me the 250 points. He looked at my account, told me to log out and log back in. I figured he was just going to give me the 250 points, but for some reason he was nice and actually gave me 750 ($15) worth of points.

When I renewed in July, I think it took about 2 weeks before my GCU status at RZ website changed expiration to October 1, 2013 from Sept 2012.

If I was to renew my subscription now, before it expires in October, would a new subscription period begin on the date of renewal or would the new year simply kick in when the October date comes around?

Uh...I guess that answers my question. #-o

I wonder if the 250 points is only if you hold off on renewing till the last minute.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

This is kind of why I'm hesitant to renew right away; I don't want to forget to renew (I hope I get the email so I won't have to worry about that :roll:), and I also want those 250 points.

Just got back from BBY and updated my membership. They just scanned the barcode from the flyer and it is already updated on the RZ website that my membership goes through 9/23/13. Painless once I knew what to do.

I renewed today, as in like 20 minutes ago, and it already says my membership goes till 2013. Hopefully it will be seemless as I'm not a new member, just simply continued my subscription. Got an extra copy of this month's magazine along with it, cause why not?

I will post if/when my 250 points gets added. I copied everything the email said to me (it was sent from rewardzone by the way), so that's all I know. As I said, I am a silver member and I got this about 2 weeks ago so the email came about a month out from my subscription running out. All the info I have to give.

What flyer did you use? I got the email saying my membership ends soon (no mention of the 250 RWZ points though) but there's no link or barcode.

I got the original email about renewing and getting 250 RZ points on 8/12. One month before my expiration on 9/12. Even asked about it here http://www.cheapassg...&postcount=2613 but no one responded. I also received the "Restart your quest" email today, but it didn't mention anything about the 250 RZ points. Hopefully they make goo on this and I don't have to call them.
