Best Buy's Gamers Club Unlocked Membership Now $30

Two years of 20% off new games and amiibos for just $30 at Best Buy.

With gamers always looking for the best deal before buying a new game, retail giant Best Buy is doing a little something its gaming clients.

Beginning March 8, the My Best Buy Gamers Club Unlocked membership price will drop from $99.99 to $30, Best Buy announced today.

For your $30, you get a two-year membership to Best Buy's Gamers Club Unlocked, which includes:

  • 20 percent off new physical video game software
  • 10 percent bonus trade-in credit on video game software
  • 10 percent off pre-owned video game software
  • 2x My Best Buy points for every dollar spent on new video game software, digital gaming and game accessories
  • 2 My Best Buy points for every dollar of video game software traded in
  • Special one-time-use welcome coupons
  • 20 percent off Nintendo amiibos
  • Exclusive offers

With 20% off new games, your membership pays for itself upon purchasing just three new games.

For comparison, GameStop's PowerUp Rewards is $14.99 for a year also gives you 10% off all used games and a 10% bonus for trade-ins along with a one-year subscription to Game Informer magazine, but doesn't include a 20% discount on new games like Best Buy's Gamers Club Unlocked.

Reason for the price drop, you ask? Best Buy Southwest US media relations lead, Shane Kitzman, says: 

Why the great deal? Gamers are among Best Buy’s most dedicated customers and while Gamers Club Unlocked was already popular and well-regarded in the gaming community, we wanted it to be even more accessible.

With all the games coming out this year, this might not be a terrible bonus for those planning on buying more than three new games in the next two years.
