    • That's almost a game changer for me... Almost because at the absurd prices games are at right now 20% off upfront just isn't good enough of a savings for anything but stuff that's so niche that won't get a discount later (Or at least for a lot longer time then most triple A stuff)

      Saving enough to outweigh the cost is also pretty tough for someone on a tight budget. I guess this does mean that our annual e3 deal for preorders is officially deader then dead now and we aren't likely to get anything for cyber monday either. Bullocks

    • Pretty hot because it applies to collector's edition. I wonder if it applies to preorder made months ago?

      Wondering this as well. Price hasn't changed with my e3 preorders, might have to use chat to have it adjusted?

    • If this stacks with previous offers it would be scolding hot. I still have a couple e3 30% off game pre orders. So has anyone tried adjusting?

    • It's not supposed to stack according to terms.

      The 20% discount applies to an items List Price and does not apply to an items already discounted price.

    • Hit or miss, I re-ordered Persona 5 Collector's edition and the prime discount applied (no E3 discount on collector on old order). I tried FFXII Zodiac Age and got nothing, same thing for Detroit: Becoming Human...

      I noticed both FFXII & Detroit didn't have an estimated release date and only says "This item has not yet been released." whereas games where the Prime discount showed up had a release date or a placeholder date eg) December 31, 2017.

    • Canceled COD:IW standard edition from my e3 preorder and ordered the LE (IW + MW), also preordered dishonored 2.

    • This is huge. No point pre-ordering from anywhere else unless they have a really attractive pre order bonus. I know we shouldn't support pre ordering games, but 20% is pretty good if you plan to buy the game regardless

    • This is awesome, especially since it applies to Collector's Editions! Nice to see us finally getting some more Prime benefits that the US gets.

      Shame the Horizon Zero Dawn CE is unavailable, would love to reorder with this discount.

    • Thanks OP, this just might make it worth it for Prime now, I do frequently order stuff on Amazon, but being in Toronto, I usually receive all my shipments from them within 2 days anyway. Oh well, going to give it a shot for this year to see if it's worth it in the end (my free trial is available again too.... so 13 months in total I guess for the first year).

    • Can I just apply for the free trial, make a bunch of preorders and cancel the trial before I get charged? Will the 20% off still apply?

      No.

      "Customer must have an active free trial or paid Prime subscription at the time of placing an order and the time of shipment to receive offer."

    • Here's my math tell me if i 'm wrong (don't wanna sign up for no reason) Please note that i am using Quebec taxes which is about 15%

      Buying a 79.99 game at any retailer (including amazon with free shipping) Game is about 92.38$ with taxes
      Buying a 79.99 game at Amazon with the 20% should bring the game to 73.90 with taxes (79.99-20%) + taxes

      Which means that in that scenario you save about 18.48$ per game (with taxes)

      Prime in Quebec is about 91$ per year, so if you only buy video games, you need 5 games to equal the price of prime (with the saved money) Which means you need to buy minimum 6 video games at 89.99 per year to start saving money.

      Did i forget something?

      Also Exept video games (Accessories, games consoles amiibo etc) what else on amazon.ca count as pre order?

      On phone with them, you'd have to reorder

      Trying to complain because I have FFXV at 49$ and i want to assign prime shipping to it and they are trying to force me to reorder it (at 79.99 -20%)

    • Woot was able to buy prime and call amazon.ca to remove the shipping fees

      Now have FFXV for 57$ with taxes and free 2 days shipping :)

      Also reordered KH 2.8, KH3 and FFVII with the deal :)

      Sasdly atm FFXII doesn't make the deal

      If all you do is preorder games then it's not worth it. This is added incentive to those of us that may use Amazon to sign up for Prime. Knowing that they have the E3 promo every year it's still hard to say yes to 80-90 bucks for Prime IMO.

      Nah if my math is good then it's still worth it, I just prodered 5 games that are not in the E3 deals so i'm already saving money off my prime membership for this year, if needed i'll just cancel it next year :)

      It might be worth it if you're into day 1 collector's editions. Not going to lie I'd love to apply it to that Pokemon Sun/Moon Steel Book dual pack for my son. I have 6 preorders pending right now, one of which would benefit from this promo, the rest all have the E3 discount making this a scratch for me.
