changes to Prime for games

starting on August 28, Prime members will now get a $10 Amazon credit when pre-ordering select games on This credit can be used on almost anything sold by This new pre-order benefit is replacing the current discount on physical game pre-orders. All eligible pre-orders placed before August 28 will still receive the 20% discount under the existing benefit once the game is released.

Darn, first BBY gets rid of the 20% discount, now Amazon?! I guess I shouldn’t pre-order games anyway.

It’s like they want to make money or something

Preordering items of effectively infinite quantity is stupid anyway.

I want them to always operate at a loss though!

I think I’ve only ever pre-ordered games like 5 times in my life. Only for sequels to games I really loved. Usually I’ll wait to see if its bad or not. Sucks that you’re losing discount though.

I work for them and I don’t have a discount. Fuck amazon but I love amazon
