As part of its ‘Re-Fun Your Refund’ program, GameStop announced today that it is offering customers a chance to get more with their IRS tax refund check than ever before. Starting today, through March 23rd, customers can get great deals on new and pre-owned video gaming systems, tablets, game titles, and accessories.

PowerUp Rewards members, 18 years or older, who spend at least $75 will be entered into a sweepstakes for a chance to win a Toyota of their choice, MeMO Pad HD 7ASUS tablets, a next-generation Turtle Beach headset, one of thousands of PlayStation® Plus memberships and Xbox Live gift cards, and more.

“We know our customers work hard for their money and we look forward to offering them fun ways to put their tax refunds to good use,” said Ashley Sheetz, chief marketing officer for GameStop. “With ‘Re-Fun Your Refund,’ we want our customers’ refunds to go further by offering them a chance to win exciting prizes and great deals on the video game products and accessories they want.”

GameStop is partnering with Toyota to offer one lucky grand prize winner the chance to take home a 2014 Toyota vehicle of his or her choice between a Sienna LE, Highlander, RAV4, Camry, Prius, or Corolla. To enter the sweepstakes, PowerUp Rewards members, who are legal residents of the United States, Guam or Puerto Rico, who are at least 18 years old, must make a purchase of $75 or greater at any GameStop store, or at www.GameStop.com/refunyourrefund between February 17 and March 23.

"We have a strong relationship with GameStop because of their sponsorship of the No. 20 GameStop Toyota in the NASCAR Nationwide Series. We are happy to extend this partnership beyond the racing program to other opportunities such as the Re-Fun Your Refund campaign,” said Paul Doleshal, motorsports marketing manager for Toyota.

Trade-in to Help Trade Up

To help customers make the transition to a next-generation console this tax season, GameStop is also offering a 50% extra in-store credit when customers trade-in any video game systems toward the purchase of a new Sony PlayStation® 4, Microsoft Xbox One, or Nintendo Wii U. Customers can also receive 30% extra in-store credit when they trade any items toward the pre-order or purchase of some of the hottest next-generation games coming in March such as Titanfall, Infamous: Second Son and Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
Enterprise architects are increasingly adopting multi-cloud strategies as they seek to utilize existing data center assets, leverage the advantages of cloud computing and avoid cloud vendor lock-in. This requires a globally aware traffic management strategy that can monitor infrastructure health across data centers and end-user experience globally, while responding to control changes and system specification at the speed of today’s DevOps teams. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Gray, Chie...
