This game piece includes a 50% trade bonus good for use when trading towards their next purchase* and a code they can enter at for a chance to win prizes.

Each week for five weeks, GameStop will choose one person who has ‘shared’ a tweet to win a $100 GameStop gift card. Tweeters can enter their entry code from a recent GameStop transaction to register at and then click to ‘share’ to enter.

Additionally, since any summer getaway is about fun, gaming fans can look for original content that will be posted to GameStop’s Facebook page,, to share and repost as well as participate in polls about how they are preparing for their own Summer Playcation.

Consumers are encouraged to tag photos on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter showing how they are spending their Summer Playcation by using the #SummerPlaycation hashtag.
