Best Buy’s My Gamers Club Unlocked offers up solid discounts on newly released titles as well as bonus trade-in credits, special game guide deals and much more. The membership brings all those perks for 2 years at just $30. You’ll make that money back with just 3 game purchases/pre-orders at 20% off. You will find even more information about GCU right here.
You were previously required to physically visit a Best Buy location to unlock/activate your membership whether you purchased it online or not. However, Best Buy is now allowing customers to purchase the GCU membership and activate it entirely online. You can even purchase it alongside games you are interested in and receive the discount on the spot.
Your Gamers Club Unlocked membership will be activated on your My Best Buy account. If you do not have an account, you can create one during checkout.
Amazon launched a similar program for gamers a few months back, extending a 20% discount on just about all pre-orders and newly released games. It is, for the most part comparable to GCU, but Amazon has rolled its promotion into the extremely popular Prime membership that comes with a host of other benefits. If it’s just the games you want, the $30 option from Best Buy might be the better bet, considering both retailers will carry all of the newest and best games (for the most part). But if you already have a Prime membership or are looking to get one, the same disocunts will be available to you on Amazon.
