GameStop and Amazon have teamed up to offer GameStop customers the ability to transfer their in-store credit to Amazon starting on the 7th June. GameStop employees are measured in part on their trade-in numbers, pre-orders and Power Up Rewards Program subscribers so this incentive will hopefully help them reach their targets easier.
Starting in June, Amazon shoppers will be able to apply their GameStop trade credit and cash towards their Amazon account! This exciting addition to our trade program is intended to drive incremental trades into stores, helping your team meet trade and inventory goals.
On 6/7, The GameStop logo will appear on Amazon’s website to promote this program. Interested shoppers will request a barcode on amazon.com/cash that can be used in GameStop stores like an Amazon POSA card.
The added store traffic driven by this program is sure to increase digital sales and the potential for guests to purchase other products in your store. How will your team make the most out of this fantastic new partnership?
