Gamestop has announced it will start accepting new and extended credit cards starting on December 1, as well as a new credit card to allow customers to pay for items online at its stores.
The news comes after a massive holiday season that has seen nearly $2 billion in transactions at the chain.
In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, the chain’s CEO Brian Goldner said that consumers who shop at its retail locations will not have to carry a credit card.
Gamestop said it expects the move will save customers $100 per year, and will be available to all customers.
The chain will also introduce a new debit card in the coming months.
“We want to offer our customers the most value and the most flexibility possible,” Goldner told the WSJ.
“We’ve always been about giving our customers as much flexibility as possible, and that’s what we’re doing now.”
