RIP Best Buy Gamer’s Club Unlocked



Best Buy is ending its gaming subscription services including the Gamers Club Unlocked (GCU) program, which offered discounts on new games for customers, as spotted by SlashGear. The GCU originally cost $99.99 for a two-year membership before being slashed to $29.99 back in March 2015. With membership, customers could receive 20 percent off new games, including pre-orders, and other benefits like better trade-in credits.

According to a memo released to employees and shared on Twitter, Best Buy will shut down its Gamers Club programs including free membership and paid tiers, and will no longer accept new members. Current members will still receive benefits, but won’t be able to renew their membership once it ends.

  1. And then these larger brick & mortar retailers wonder why they're getting mauled down like dogs by Amazon's monopoly. First it was Sears. Then it was circuit city. Recently it was RadioShack and Toys-R-Us.. now these halfwits (Best Buy) are going to filing for protection soon enough, I guarantee it. Hell, Amazon is getting so big that even the likes of Google sees them as a significant threat. They're investing in cloud-based services, aerospace, even game engines.. virtually any industry that they can get their grubby mitts on

    It's exciting, yet worrisome all at the same time.. and fuck Best buy! You snooze you lose

  2. If you do the yearly subscription for Amazon Prime you get the same discount off of new games plus you get release day delivery on preorders. I preordered God of War before it came out for about 45 bucks was in my mailbox when I got home from work on release day. Also you get free 2 day shipping on anything you buy from Amazon
