(No Longer a) Rumor: GameStop to Issue Credit Cards

28 July 2014 - 06:43 PM

http://arstechnica.c...g-credit-cards/

From the article:


Destructoid reports that it has "obtained photographs" of a purported brochure advertising a credit card tied to the retailer's existing PowerUp Rewards program. Signing up for the card nets customers anywhere from 5,000 to 15,000 PowerUp Rewards Points (worth roughly $5 to $15 in value), according to the images, as well as benefits like "special financing offers." We'd expect that having a GameStop credit card would also provide Rewards Points for everyday purchases, but there's no mention of such a benefit in the report.


Those signup bonuses are… kinda weak. And of course, it has a ridiculously high APR :lol:

Again, this is all based on one Destructoid report, so who knows if it'll come to pass. It sounds like just the sort of thing GameStop would get into, though.

ETA: They really exist now. Thanks, Bezerker!
