GameStop Celebrates Veterans Day by Introducing New Military Discount Program
GameStop Salutes Active and Former Military Personnel by Offering a 10% Discount on Select Video Game and Collectibles Merchandise

GRAPEVINE, Texas, Nov. 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In celebration of Veterans Day, GameStop is introducing a new military discount program to salute the brave men and women who have served – or are currently serving – our country.

Starting today, all active and former military personnel will receive a 10% discount off all new video game software and accessories; all pre-owned software, hardware and accessories; and all collectibles in GameStop U.S. store locations. The new military discount program will be available all year long to all military personnel with a proper ID, including a military or Veterans ID, Form DD214, or by authenticating their military status through other online verification platforms such as ID.me.  

“On this Veterans Day, we pause to take a moment to honor and say, ‘Thank You’ to all the brave men and women who have, or are still serving our country,” said George Sherman, CEO of GameStop. “We don’t take lightly the sacrifices our service members make daily to preserve our freedom. As a small token of GameStop’s appreciation, we are proud to offer a much-deserved discount in our stores all year long.”

Available only in-store, the new military discount program does not include new video game hardware platforms, digital currency of any type, point-of-sale-activation cards, or any other type of gift cards. Additionally, the discount does not apply to sales, clearance or any other GameStop promotional items.

Finally, in addition to the new military discount program, today only, GameStop will donate 5% of all proceeds from the sale of select Call of Duty: Modern Warfare merchandise to the Call of Duty Endowment, which helps find high quality jobs for unemployed veterans.
