Amazon Prime Promo: 20% Off Video Game Preorders; Star Wars Store Launches

Prime Members: 20% Off Video Game Preorders–Thanks to Twitch Prime

The latest announcement of Twitch Prime means Prime members looking to pre-order video games, will get 20% off. Twitch is a leading live video game streaming platform, acquired by Amazon two years ago.

Prime members will see new discounted prices on eligible games and other Twitch Prime benefits:

  • Free in-game loot every month, plus surprises: You’ll get characters, vehicles, skins, and boosts for games like Hearthstone and Smite, plus surprises like a copy of Streamline the day it launches.
  • Ad-free viewing plus a free channel subscription every 30 days: Support your favourite streamer, plus get exclusive emotes, more chat colours, and crown yourself with the chat badge of royalty.
  • Member discount on new release box games: Your exclusive pricing even applies to pre-orders and collector’s editions, plus get pre-order price guarantee and release-day delivery.

Twitch Prime is available in the United States, Canada, UK, Germany, France, Italy and Spain, including Prime Student members.

So with this new 20% off discount for Twitch Prime, Pokemon Moon is available for $39.99 after discount, much cheaper than any other retailer, for example:

Here are some games with their 20% off prices listed below (numerous Collector’s Editions are eligible):

The fine print reads “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.”

Again, even if you sign up for a free Prime trial account, you are eligible for 20% off video game preorders. Not a bad deal at all, if you’re waiting to get some of these new games.
