This could save hardcore gamers some money
Play lots of video games? Got Amazon Prime? Then you’ll love the online retailer’s latest announcement.
Amazon Prime members will now get 20% off the cost of new video games ordered through the site, the company announced Tuesday. That knocks about $12 off the price of a $60 title.
The discount applies to physical copies of new games either pre-ordered before their release date or purchased in their first two weeks of availability. Games pre-ordered on Amazon are shipped to be delivered on release day.
It’s worth noting that Best Buy has a similar deal, Gamers Club Unlocked, with a lower cost of entry. Best Buy’s program offers the same 20% discount, along with other perks, for $30 every two years. Amazon Prime, meanwhile, costs $99 a year. But Prime also comes with a host of other non-gaming benefits, like free two-day shipping, access to Amazon’s streaming movie and TV catalog and lots more.
