Best Buy establishes Gamers Club, a Reward Zone program

Posted by: Randy at 10/14/2008 11:58 PM
Best Buy is expanding its Reward Zone program specifically for gamers with its Gamers Club loyalty program.  For every $150 you spend on qualifying gaming software and accessories (certain exclusions apply) Gamers Club members will receive 500 points/$10 reward certificates.  And while 6.7% off your next gaming purchase -- which is what $10 off $150 amounts to -- isn't the greatest bundle of savings, membership to the Reward Zone is free, so you gain nothing by not signing up.  And to kickoff the Gamers Club, you can win a Saleen S281 Super-Charged ($85,000 value) if you're a Gamers Club member; you can enter up to once daily until November 30th in Best Buy's on-line giveaway.
