Gamers Buy Where?

When you think about buying your next video game, which outlet comes to mind, first? 
Most gamers probably start looking on Amazon or going to GameStop. Some will go to Best Buy or maybe even Wal-Mart (if I'm already there, and see something for $19.99!) Amazon is a great spot, we don't even have to get off the couch, and the prices are pretty sweet, too. Of course, GameStop has new games for regular prices, and you can always find a used title that you may want to check out for less than $30. And buying a game for a little one, like my 4 year old son, a used game is perfect. Now, GameStop has their Power Up Rewards program, where you can earn 10-20 points per dollar spent depending on what you buy, to spend on different merchandise, download content, etc., and get discounts on used games, strategy guides, and accessories. That will cost you $14.99 year, which isn't bad, or you can opt-in for the free one, but you don't get as many "perks".  Though, Best Buy has the Rewards Zone Membership, which is free, and also the Gamers Club, in which you can earn a point per every dollar you spend. Sometimes, you can earn extra points if you buy what’s hot on their list. I buy from both, GameStop and Best Buy. The only thing about Best Buy is they don't open for midnight releases, at least where I live. GameStop does, so if it’s a big title, like Call of Duty: Black Ops that I want at midnight I'm more than likely going to GameStop, even though I do love getting Best Buy Reward Zone certificates.
I have a well kept secret that I am going to share with all of my fellow gamers because I "got nothing but love for ya'"! I honestly just found out about this awesome store that rewards gaming purchases with great discounts right there at the time of purchase! Wait for it. Wait for it!
Next posts coming very soon, so please follow for the answer.
