I started May 29th, 2010 and have 54,271 lifetime points.


As CaptainJoel I was in a test market that started around this time and I had 40k points lifetime.

Yet another terrible steal of the week. This is getting a bit ridiculous.

That Dragon Quest slime they had available came and went. Glad I ordered one.

I know what the next steal of the week should be: Turn in your Gamestop rewards Pro card and receive your 14 bucks back.... I miss the days of gamecrazy

The time I wasted opening this thread feels like the steal of the week.

Not sure if anybody has mentioned this yet, but there is now a Power Up Rewards iphone app. Its free to download in the app store. It also has some bonuses that give you points.

This one confuses me, unless it stacks with the current +25 on hardware, if it does then it is a pretty good use of 1.5k points as long as you were already going to trade in a ds this week.

Even if it does stack with the extra $25 on hardware, it's only for trading up a DS to 3DS. How many people were planning on doing that this week? My guess is maybe a dozen or so, haha.

The Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman aprons are now available for order. Pretty steep at 14,130 points apiece, though.

I'm actually seriously considering selling my DsiXL and about 20 games since I never play it...I would've traded it to Gamestop for $85 but I have no interest in a 3DS...too bad.

If they just had Captain Marvel I'd be in for it. 8-)

It's Monday and no steal of the week posted yet. At least we don't have a reason to be disappointed yet.

They did add a new sweepstakes for preordering Deus Ex though.

For the buy 2 get 1 free coupon you receive when you sign up for power up reward pro, when you redeem it, can it only be used for 1 set of 3 games, or are you able to purchase additional sets of 3 games (as long as its in the same transaction) and get 1 free as well?. I know it is a time use coupon. Thanks to anyone who knows.

This was literally posted up 2 minutes after my last post, haha. It's as if PUR knew I was hunting for the new SotW.

Epic sad face. I thought at some point they'd have to get better, but no... progressively worse each week.

They also added a couple Gears of War tshirts, one for men and one for women.

A bit on the pricy side, but more rewards are better than no rewards.

50% trade in isn't a bad steal of the week.

It is when it's limited to certain titles being traded in to another certain title AND costs 500 of your PUR points... especially when you can get 40% extra trade in credit with no restrictions for free.

Bleah, missed the part of any 2011 sports game.

I figured it was just 50% trade in toward NCAA, which you could always cancel and ge your credit in the future.

But that 2011 Sports game makes it suck

Were it not for the restriction on the titles you're trading in, it would be a decent deal.

It's not quite the same, and of course it depends on how many points you have, but 10k points will get you a $10 off any purchase coupon. You could then use that to buy a $20 PSN card for $10. Overall a better deal that way but it would require more points and spending some real money.

Wrong Place to ask this but i doubt that the code thread would accept this? Can anyone trade me a coupon for $10 off a gamecube, ps2, or xbox? Im willing to trade for said coupon. I didn't have enough points to get it.
