What Is Powerup Rewards?Powerup Rewards is a rewards service offered by the video gaming retail store chain Gamestop. The service allows customers to accrue points on every purchase or trade-in, which they can redeem for various rewards, such as coupons, exclusive merchandise, and entries into a variety of sweepstakes, among other items. Powerup Rewards has two membership tiers: Basic and Pro. The Basic membership is free, and gives members access to news and exclusive offers, along with the ability to gather points on every purchase or trade. A Pro membership costs a small fee of $15 per year, but this tier has much more to offer customers, such as discounts on all previously owned games and accessories, a bonus to all points gained, and a 10% to all credit given on trade-ins. Below, you can read up on how to sign up for either a Basic or Pro membership, and then how to activate your card.
Step 1: Signup
To sign up for a Basic or Pro membership, you need to first locate the Gamestop location closest to your home. To do this, you can head to the official Gamestop website at gamestop.com and click the “Find A Store” link at the top of the home page.
From there, you will be taken to a page with search box. You can search for a Gamestop location by city, state, or zip code. Depending on how many locations are in your area, you could end up with several results.
After that, simply locate the store closest to you by looking at how many miles each location is from your home and drive to the store itself. It’s usually worth checking to see if the store is open before heading there. After you arrive at your closest store, let the clerk know that you would like to sign up for a Powerup Rewards account. You will be asked which kind of membership you’d like to sign up for. Remember that a Pro account is $15 per year, which you can pay with using either your card or cash.
Step 2: Card Activation
After you successfully sign up for an account, you will be given a plastic membership card which you must activate at home on Gamestop’s website. Following that, click the Powerup Rewards link at the top of the page.
After that, click on the gamestop.com/activate link to be taken to another page where you can then create an account.
After you have created and confirmed your account, you will need to type in your card number, following which you should be all set!
