Ways to Save Money

Hey, Gamers: Amazon Prime Just Became an Even Better Deal. Here’s Why

Amazon Prime, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways:

Fast, free shipping. Exclusive savings for parents. Early access to lightning deals. Unlimited streaming TV and movies…

As if we needed another reason.

Save 20% on Video Games

Amazon just rolled out a brand new offer for Prime members: 20% off new video games, starting at pre-order and ending two weeks after their release.

Discounts are automatically applied at checkout, so there aren’t any annoying codes to remember.

And, if you already put in your order for Final Fantasy: Explorers or The Division, don’t worry — they’ll automatically extend the deal to all existing Prime pre-orders.

Game On

This deal applies to any physical new release video game. Sorry, PC-players — it won’t work for your digital downloads.

Plus, Amazon offers a pre-order price guarantee.

“Whenever you pre-order a video game, the price we charge when we ship it to you will be the lowest price offered by Amazon.com,” the site says.

So you can rest assured you’re getting the very best deal… and the quickest delivery.

In fact, Amazon will even offer release-day delivery, depending on your location.

Get the full details over at Amazon, and don’t forget that you can try Prime free for 30 days. After the trial period, you’ll pay $99 per year.

But it easily pays for itself — especially if you’ve got a gamer in the house!

Your Turn: Are you an Amazon Prime member yet? Will you take advantage of this deal?
