We love video games here at Techaeris. Many of us play all sorts of games and enjoy time spent behind a controller immensely. Amazon understands this love of games and has recently unveiled some new benefits for Amazon Prime gamers.
Starting today, Amazon will offer 20 percent off of brand new videogames starting with pre-orders and lasting two weeks after the game launches. There are a few caveats involved, and we’ll get to those shortly, but on paper this seems like a pretty fantastic way to get a great deal on brand new games.
First the good news: This discount will apply to any game that is sold by Amazon (no third party sellers), for any system (see caveats/bad news below). Amazon Prime members that have current pre-orders open for games will also see this discount on their purchase. Collector’s editions are also included. Game console bundles are left out, of course, but otherwise collector’s editions are go.
Even if the game is already discounted, Prime members will always receive at least 20 percent off of the list price during pre-order and the first two weeks after launch. If that weren’t good enough, Amazon still promises release day delivery for eligible video game purchases and of course their price-match guarantee.
Next the not-so-good news for digital download junkies. This offer is only good for physical products, so download codes are ineligible. This will undoubtedly make some people angry, and understandably so. It does seem that digital codes are rarely ever part of overall discounts even though these codes take up no room in inventory, do not require shipping, packaging, etc. That said, as long as you don’t mind having some disks laying around the house, this seems like a pretty fantastic deal for Amazon Prime members.
