GameStop recently launched a new promotion that further increases the supply problem. The retailer has decided to allow its paid subscribers to cut the queue for the latest resupply of its Sony PlayStation 5 units.
PowerUp Rewards members received an email informing them that they will have a limited stock of PS5 and PC graphics cards on GameStop for the first time. “To show our appreciation, today at 10:00 CST we are opening Early Online Access for Pro members to purchase only PlayStation 5 or PC Graphics Card on gamestop.com. This doesn’t guarantee that you’ll get one of these products – the quantities are extremely limited – but we wanted to help give our best guests a better opportunity to rate one of these high-demand products.”
The promotion is an unexpected offer for GameStop‘s PowerUp Rewards membership, since the annual subscription normally only offers the opportunity to earn points with purchases and monthly discount coupons.
