If you still love buying physical games and picking up your amiibo at a discount, there’s some sad news to report on regarding the last bastion of lower rates. Best Buy’s Gamers Club is no more, effective earlier today. Along with that means the end of Gamers Club Unlocked, the paid extra membership that gave you two years of a 20% cut on games, amiibo, and more for just $30.

The service is unavailable to purchase online or in-store, with signage to come down to try and wipe the service from their stores. For those who are currently members, you’ll still get your benefits until your membership expires at its natural date two years from your initial purchase.

It’s an unfortunate blow to collectors and consumers. Best Buy has yet to make a public statement on the matter.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
