GameStop Expands 2014 Holiday Layaway Program to Include More Products Customers Can Reserve and Pay for Over Time

New PowerUp Rewards credit card offers customers special financing throughout the holidays

DALLAS--()--To kick off the 2014 holiday gift-giving season, GameStop, a family of specialty retail brands that makes the most popular technologies affordable and simple, announced today that it will expand its 2014 holiday layaway program to include more products than ever before.

Beginning today, and continuing through Sunday, December 14, customers will have the option to reserve many of this year’s top holiday products including video game consoles, tablets, accessories, and headsets through GameStop’s expanded layaway program.*

In addition, through its new PowerUp Rewards credit card, GameStop is offering special financing. For a limited time, PowerUp Rewards Pro credit cardholders will receive zero percent interest on purchases of $500 or more for six months.

“The holidays are all about joy, spending time with friends, and giving gifts to loved ones. It should not be about stressing over how to pay for this year’s holiday wish list,” said Bob Puzon, senior vice president of merchandising. “By offering customers an expanded list of products they can purchase through our layaway program, GameStop is helping make it more affordable and simple for gift-givers to spread a little extra joy this holiday season.”

This year, GameStop is offering customers the opportunity to purchase the following items through its holiday layaway program:

Consoles:

  • Sony PlayStation 4
  • Microsoft Xbox 360 (500Gb)
  • Nintendo WiiU Super Mario 3D Bundle

Tablets:

  • ASUS MeMO Pad HD 7 Light Blue
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 7.0
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1
  • ASUS Transformers Book T100

Accessories:

  • Seagate 3TB External Hard Drive

Headsets:

  • Beats by Dre Solo 2 Black
  • PS4/PS3 Gold Wireless Headset
  • Xbox One X04 Headset
  • Astro A40 PS4 Headset
  • Universal Afterglow Prismatic

The newly expanded layaway program provides customers more gift-giving options this holiday season, while offering them the ability to pay for their items over time. A $25 minimum deposit is required to start a layaway contract, and all layaways must be paid-off and picked-up at the store location where the original deposit was made by the end of operating hours on December 19, 2014.

GameStop offers the best value and the most options to holiday shoppers this season. Customers have the ability to pay off any items on layaway through cash, standard credit card, store credit obtained through trade-ins, and the new GameStop PowerUp Rewards credit card.

The new GameStop PowerUp Rewards credit card will provide cardholders with convenience and benefits exclusive to account holders, including being able to make purchases online, online and mobile platform card management and payment services, as well as no annual fee and exclusive offers for savings throughout the year.
