You get many incentives with an Amazon Prime membership, the big ticket item is that you get free two-day shipping on countless items sold through Amazon. The membership also provides access to an online video and music streaming service as well as free cloud storage. Members get discounts on products and are able to access deals before non-members. Now there’s yet another incentive but this one will appeal more to gamers.

Amazon Prime is now offering a 20 percent discount on pre-ordered games as well as new releases, Amazon is defining the “new release” window as the first two weeks after a game has been launched.

That’s 20 percent off new physical games during pre-order or the new release window, the discounts are automatically applied at checkout, and the important thing to keep in mind is that this offer only applies when the game is shipped and sold by Amazon itself and not from a third-party seller.

Release Day Delivery is also free for Prime Members and they get pre-order price guarantee as well. From the looks of it, this is going to be a permanent affair for Prime members since the company hasn’t indicated that this is only a limited time offer.

If you’ve been on the fence about subscribing to Amazon Prime, which costs $99 per year, perhaps this will convince you. Those who tend to purchase a lot of games will certainly appreciate flat savings of 20 percent, buy enough physical games throughout the year and the Prime membership will even pay for itself.
