If Amazon Prime is known for one thing, it’s the amazing deals it provides to customers. Video game consumers rejoiced when Amazon announced that all Prime members would be receiving a 20 percent discount on all game preorders if they purchased through Amazon. The service was similar to Best Buy’s Gamers Club Unlocked which also ended up closing down.
Amazon announced that the deal would be coming to a close soon and would be replaced with a $10 credit on certain games. Clearly, this is a bummer for fans of the service as it’s a severe downgrade in savings. The service will switch to the new model on August 28th, but buyers should be aware that by preordering over the next few days you will still get the 20 percent decrease in price.
Savvy buyers should get their holiday shopping done in August to take full advantage of these savings through Amazon. Here are a few key titles that gamers should add to their shopping carts as soon as possible! Links to purchase each title are provided.
A few key games that will be coming out in the near future that are eligible for this deal include Super Smash Bros Ultimate, Assassins Creed Odyssey, Dragon Quest XI, Kingdom Hearts 3, and Fallout 76.
Additionally, some games are up for preorder on Amazon that will not be coming out any time soon but is still available at a discount through this deal. Cyberpunk 2077, Metroid Prime 4, and Final Fantasy VII Remake are all highly anticipated games with no firm release date that can be bought on the cheap.
It should be noted that not every game is eligible for this deal so if they were not mentioned, that is why. There are many more games available at a discount with the deal so be sure to check the listings on Amazon if they were not mentioned in this article.
