GameStop Expo opens up to Power-Up Reward members - for 5 hours

GameStop Expo If you thought American Express was the only company touting "Membership has it's privileges," apparently GameStop is taking the famous 1987 to 1996 AMEX advertising slogan. GameStop is offering Power-Up Rewards members the chance to get the game-insider treatment.

Each year GameStop managers are whisked away to a boot camp that more closely resembles an E3 event. Each year GameStop managers are given some hands-on experience with upcoming games from all the big boys in the gaming industry.

This year they are expanding the format to offer all 18 million Power-Up Rewards members the same opportunity. Don't get your hopes up. This intimate gathering of gaming gurus only lasts 5 hours and is limited to 6,000 attendees. I guess it's first-come, first-served. Oh yeah, you also have to get to TX to attend. But if you meet the criteria, August 29, 2012 is your lucky day!
