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.

Much of the value of DevOps comes from a (renewed) focus on measurement, sharing, and continuous feedback loops. In increasingly complex DevOps workflows and environments, and especially in larger, regulated, or more crystallized organizations, these core concepts become even more critical. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Andi Mann, Chief Technology Advocate at Splunk, showed how, by focusing on 'metrics that matter,' you can provide objective, transparent, and meaningful f...

I’m going to cry tonight, long and hard. I’ll do so as I remember and mourn Jeremy Geelan. I knew Jeremy for almost 20 years, from the time he showed up one day at Cloud Expo’s headquarters in Bergen County, New Jersey, and went to work. The show wasn’t called Cloud Expo then, of course – it was still known as Java Edge, a pioneering event that grabbed developers, architects, and enterprise IT users alike for twice-yearly confabs. Jeremy didn’t have a job there, or even a job offer. He was s...
