Amazon US Offers Prime Users Cheaper Games
Gareth Andrews / 3 years ago
You remember that feeling when you’ve really wanted a game and the best place to buy it is online? Releases in a few days and you want to make sure you have it ready for when you get in, ready to stare and watch as it starts up and the world disappears. Now remember that $99 Amazon asked you for that next day delivery through Prime? Seems like the two could now be one and the same, with Amazon Prime offering discounts on all new releases and pre-orders of video games.
Amazon’s site now reveals that when you are a prime member you will receive (if its Amazon shipping the game) 20% off. Have you been burned by recent pre-orders not living up to expectations? For those burned by games like Colonial Marines fear not, the discount not only counts towards pre-orders but also for the first two weeks after its release.
Not only does the offer extend to those who have already pre-ordered games via Prime but it will also include Collectors editions of games. I’m sorry to say that product bundles, such as consoles and games releasing at the same time, will not be included in the deal.
Saving 20% may not seem like much, but if you purchase several games over the year the savings quickly stack. Sadly the offer seems to be limited to Amazon.com for now, so hopefully other Amazon sites will quickly follow suit. Check out the terms and conditions and FAQ’s before buying all those games you’ve been putting off pre-ordering.
