Issued by video games retailer GameStop, Inc., PowerUp Rewards Cards are part of a nationwide customer-loyalty program that enables the holder to accumulate points whenever they make a purchase or trade. These points can be exchanged for games for PCs, the Xbox 360, Sony PlayStations, the Sony PSP, the Nintendo Wii and the Nintendo DS. The points can also be exchanged for consoles and accessories. For a small annual fee of $14.99, as of April 2011, holders can upgrade to a PowerUp Rewards Pro Card that offers benefits such as additional discounts and bonus points.
