Video games just got a whole lot more affordable thanks to Amazon Prime.
Amazon recently unveiled a new benefit for Amazon Prime members. The new deal is centered around new physical copies of videogames sold and shipped by Amazon. The new games can be pre-ordered prior to launch or purchased within 2 weeks of launch to score the deal. Best of all, games that are pre-ordered through Amazon are delivered on launch day. If you are a Prime member, you are entitled to a 20% discount off the regular price. So, for example, a $59.99 game would run about $47.99 before taxes. That’s a savings of $12 on a $60 game!
This certainly is a sweet deal for gamers. Taking a look at 2016, it is shaping up to be a fantastic year for gamers with an abundance of highly-anticipated titles like The Legend of Zelda, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, The Last Guardian, Tom Clancy’s The Division, Quantum Break, Hitman, Far Cry Primal, and more. This equates to a ton of savings on all your favorite games. There is plenty of buzz and excitement in the videogame industry and this is simply icing on the cake. Interestingly, Best Buy has a similar deal, offering 20% off. Best Buy’s Gamer’s Club Unlocked membership costs around $30 for 2 years. But with Amazon Prime you score the 20% off deal on new videogames, get free 2-day shipping, not to mention access to a wide array of streaming content. An Amazon Prime membership costs $99/year.
