Best Buy Gamers Club And Gamers Club Unlocked Allegedly Closing


It is looking like those interested in the Best Buy Gamers Club or Gamers Club Unlocked program may be out of luck. What is said to be an official Best Buy memo has appeared online stating the two programs will no longer accept new members and current members will only enjoy the benefits of the service until their current subscriptions expire. (Thanks, Wario64!)


The Best Buy memo, which was dated May 20, 2018, states that all enrollment prompts have stopped, employees should not offer membership and people should be directed to the My Best Buy membership instead. The official website no longer allows people to purchase a two-year membership for $30.


The free Gamers Club membership offered people double points on game trade-ins, special reward certificates, gaming offers and points on gaming consoles. The paid Gamers Club Unlocked membership included all of those features and special welcome coupons, double points on games, digital content and accessories, 20% off e-guides for games, 10% off pre-owned games, 10% bonus trade-in credit and 20% off of all new games.
