Looks like the Game Group is a step closer to coming out of administration.Administrators have started honouring GAME reward cards again, with remaining stores now redeeming them for purchases and allowing you to earn points on new games.
The use of reward and gifts cards at GAME was suspended when the company went into administration on Monday. As soon as it did hundreds of stores were closed and thousands of jobs were lost.
Things are looking increasingly brighter for those stores that remain though, with current rumours suggesting the company could be brought out of administration tomorrow, following the acceptance of a buyout from RBS (Royal Bank of Scotland).
Although other sources claim that a counter offer from the owner of Comet is also being considered.
That's all still just rumour at the moment, but reactivating reward cards is definitely happening, according to Twitter posts from GAME themselves.
'Reward Card Update 1: Your Reward Cards have now been reactivated by the Administrators for redemption against pre-owned stock,' said the first post.
'Reward Card Update 2: This means that points can be earned on all products AND redeemed against pre-owned items as of now,' added the second.
What's also encouraging is that the use of reward cards is also now mentioned on GAME's website. The site still isn't open for business but again this seems a positive sign that it might be returning soon.
