Reward Cards are BACK!
In a huge turn of events within a few days of the Game Group entering into administration, Administrators Pwc have re-activated the reward card system for both Game and GameStation…with a catch. In a statement today the retailer has said “Your Reward Cards have now been reactivated by the Administrators for redemption against pre-owned stock. This means that points can be earned on all products AND redeemed against pre-owned items as of now. This is only applies to Reward Cards only, at present moment.” The points you collect are no longer to be able to be used to purchase NEW software or hardware, only preowned items .
All Gift Cards for both retailers remain suspended for the time being. We hope that this is not the new start of an image following game developers to make you purchase online access if you buy a preowned game, hopefuly this is only a temporary measure until the retailers can get their finances in order.
Those of you with pre-orders with the retailers should have them automatically transferred to your nearest Game or GameStation, but please contact the stores, as my own nearest store still cannot guarantee pre-order stock (my pre-order- Xbox 360 Kinect Star Wars Console) to cover everybody at this time and may run on first come, first served basis until they have any further details.
