Amazon Heavily Discounts New Video Game Releases
I have to post this before the regularly scheduled time next week because of just how awesome a deal this is. When I went looking for preorder bonuses on The Division, I stumbled across something incredible. Amazon.com is offering 20% off video game titles to US customers for new and preordered titles. It’s probably trying to compete with grey market sellers like Green Man Gaming, but the reason really doesn’t matter. The savings do. There are a couple of caveats, but they aren’t really caveats because the “fine print” isn’t so bad this time. Make sure you read through everything below!
Prime Customers Only
This is the big one. You must subscribe to Prime to get the discount. Prime costs $99/year. With the average new $60 game title, that’s $12per game. The Division comes out in March 2016, Total War Warhammer comes out in April, and DOOM comes out in may. The new World of Warcraft expansion hits in September. That’s $46 already saved, almost half the cost of Prime in video games alone. On top of the 20% off video game preorders, you get free two day shipping on nearly everything. And there’s streaming music AND video services too. I also use it to get some groceries cheaper than in stores, and delivered right to my doorstep. The banner here is my affiliate link, and will get you a free 30 day trial of Amazon Prime. According to Amazon’s FAQ, everything you order during your trial still gets all the savings. I subscribed to Prime in September of 2015, well before this promotion was available. It was well worth the $99 price then, and worth even more now!
Must Order Physical Copy
The discount doesn’t apply when buying game downloads, but it’s still not a problem for those of us that like to have games on launch day. If you select the 2-day Prime shipping (which is free), it will be delivered on the day it’s released, GUARANTEED! So you really don’t miss much of anything. Not to mention you still get the usual low price guarantee when pre-ordering through Amazon.
Buy Prime For Games, Save Money On Everything
This is something pretty new, as I didn’t see this last week when I went looking for The Division on Amazon. I already confirmed it works for DOOM, World of Warcraft, and so on. There are lots of upcoming titles, and I have (affiliate) linked the main page below. No matter when you come across this, you can see what Amazon has to offer!
As always, if you have any questions about this offer, feel free to leave them in the comments below!
