GameStop 'PowerPass' program gives you unlimited access to used games

The program is planned for a November 19, 2017 launch. You'll also need to pick your games from what's physically available in-store, no pulling from GameStop's online selection.
Once the six month term has ended, subscribers keep the last game they borrowed, meaning they can simply choose a near-new release and make significant savings.
This year has been a mixed one for GameStop and their newest strategy of Power Pass to rent out games from physical stores is quite a hard one especially when things have become completely digital these days.
Pre-owned video games have been money makers for GameStop for a long time. There's no limit to how many games you can effectively "rent" using PowerPass, but you can only take one one home at a time. The basic, free membership should be adequate for taking advantage of Power Pass, but you can get extra benefits for either $14.99 or $29.99 per year.
In effect, this partially puts GameStop in direct competition with RedBox, which already enjoys a bit of an edge in the game rental business with its widely dispersed units.
GameStop appears to be offering a new service that will let customers rent a used game, play it as much as they want, return it, and check out another title as often as they'd like, according to a leaked magazine ad spotted by user Virtua on the ResetEra gaming forum (via Polygon).
The last game you rent during your six-month subscription is yours to keep forever. One game can be checked out at a time.
This is an interesting move from GameStop, as it emulates rental services like GameFly.
