I pre-ordered the Kingdom Hearts Ultimania right when it was announced, even though I'm unsure if I'm even going to actually get it. Since Amazon does these random price drops during the pre-order period, I pre-order any art book I have even a passing interest in to get the lowest price. They don't do pre-authorizations and don't charge until they ship, so it's best just to pre-order and cancel later.
Yeah, this is the way to go, as I often miss the first discount, but will get in on the 2nd or 3rd, just depending on how long the pre-order period is and when you place your order. Often times, the first discount is the lowest, but it most certainly is a YMMV type situation, as the earliest you can get in the queue, the better off you'll be.
