resident evil origins ps4 gets discounted to 34.99 after the prime discount and who knows how much more it will go down if it has a great sale price once released 

 

this also works on kingdom hearts 3 and street fighter v

Uncharted 4 CE, Odin Sphere CE both get discounts. So does the Overwatch CE (If you get the expensive one it's 26 dollars off.)

 

Life is Strange CE also has one. Eight dollars off.

So the way the description of these sales work is, if you already have it ordered and are a prime member, these discounts should automatically get applied. But that doesn't seem to be happening...

I may end up shifting the bulk of my physical game purchases from Best Buy to Amazon. I've been a loyal GCU member since the program was introduced but now that Amazon is offering discounts + no tax here in Mississippi, the price is much closer to GCU + the $10 certificate.  I've always made enough purchases to hit Elite or Elite Plus at Best Buy but this year may be the end of that. I typically spend around $10K at Amazon each year already and they've always had superb customer service anytime I've had an issue.  I'm glad they're getting more serious towards gaming.

So is this 20% discount going to be permanent for all games in the future? 

I wish they would let us know so i can plan on getting games from amazon going forward.

Im tired of the loose discs in case from BB. (& Too bad i have all my saved credit in BB  :wall: )

The only advantage of GCU is that it's off all new games. This amazon stuff is limited to preorders.

I hope this is true since I pre-order three lucas amiibo from the last time it was out for pre-order.

Yeah I just went ahead and canceled my previous preorders and re-did them to make sure I get the discount.  Weird, but whatever.  Gotta save them bucks.

A good deal of my pre-orders from Amazon are out of stock. Hoping they still get the 20% off treatment. If not, oh well, not the hugest problem in the world.

I still have my order of KH3 from when it was 40.99 for some reason.  Definitely will buy the rest of the games stated though.

Look under "Special offers for this item" on the product page.

Thanks for the heads up. Preordered Senran Kagura Estival Versus just in case Best Buy doesn't have it.

Add it to your cart and go to the checkout page. 

Thanks, I see it now.

 

But oddly enough, anything I might want either:

 

-I've already preordered at Best Buy (RE Origins Collection, Dark Souls III)

-can wait for a price drop/sale because I have too dang much to play already (M&L: Paper Jam, Rise of the Tomb Raider PS4, Gravity Rush Remastered, Odin Sphere Leifthrasir, Senran Kagura Estival Versus)

-may get a worthwhile Collector's Edition (FFXV, FFVII Remake)

Meh, GCU + 10 dollar certs plus 45 day price guarantee means GCU is way better.

Just shoot them a message to be sure.

People should also keep in mind if they let Amazon put every B&M retailer out of business, they sure as hell will never offer another discount on anything.  At the same price, you should certainly be supporting local.

Well almost nothing has $10 cert right now. 45 day is great if you happen to be elite plus.

Out of worry, I cancelled my Odin Sphere PS4 order and then re-ordered it both by Amazon. I notice that the Gravity Rush Remastered is also among the pre-order sales, but I'm leaving that prior pre-order alone to see what happens if my old order's price automatically reduces overtime. It's only $30.

Maybe this will encourage BBY to put up some more $10 certs?

Exactly. It's taken them this long to just do the 20% discount on select preorders. They wouldn't be offering anything if it wasn't for Best Buy offering it first. The few bucks you might be saving on tax or the convenience of prime shipping will seem insignificant when you're no longer saving 20% anywhere because Best Buy is out of business.

 

And yes, I understand some people have Amazon credit, don't live near Best Buy, getting games not at BBY, etc. This post is not about you. Support the price leader when you can.

Best but normally refreshes the list around the beginning of the year. I'd expect it to update soon

Yup always try to support the stores that are CREATING sales, and not just matching them. Amazon has become a defacto price match store. I only use them as a last resort if I can't get something elsewhere.

If you preorder stuff with the Prime discount today but your Prime expires before release, does the discount still apply?

I'm not sure what to think of the sale for the FFVII remake. If the game will be sold in episodes, and the game will be as big and true to its source, I don't think what's being sold on Amazon will reflect what the game will be sold as. Just a thought.

Ordered Gravity Rush since Best Buy doesn't have it but I think I'll keep my sales to Best Buy. My store is actually really great especially with in store pick ups and the staff is all pretty good too, plus it's a 7 minute drive versus waiting for UPS to drop off my package
