Amazon.ca Prime Members Get 20% Off Pre-Orders

Canadian buddies, guys, and friends...we now get 20% off pre-orders if you are a Prime Member.

My wife accidentally signed up for Prime last year and there wasn't a ton of savings until now. Pre-order a few games and you have paid for Prime pretty quickly (not to mention the free express shipping).

For $80 a year, you only need to pre-order 5 games to pay it off with the pre-order bonus alone. If you regularly buy from Amazon, like I do, then Prime is almost a solid value (if only we had Amazon video )

So now you can get 20% off incomplete and unready games that you shouldn't be pre-ordering in the first place.

This has been going on in the US for months now, guys. Between this and GCU at Best Buy I can't remember the last time I paid full price for a game.

You bought something at full price last year (PC game of course) but it was something that important you mentioned you only did for that game. If I only could remember what it was.

Yah, our Prime is pretty much worthless compared to your Prime. This is one nice step in adding better value for us and will probably lead to me re-subbing this year.

I don't really use Twitch much, but it's always nice to hear that my Prime subscription just got new features.

Yeah, that Amazon discount has been around for a while. Keep in mind that the pre-order discount doesn't work with digital copies of games, and the discount is available for 2 weeks after a game's initial launch date.

They're offerings aren't that great, but The Man in the High Castle premieres tonight, so the timing couldn't have been better. Sneaky Pete looks interesting, and I'm always open to rewatching Justified.

Any other good recommendations?

Prime video is available everywhere in the world now, almost.

No China or North Korea.

"The choice was Universal Health Care or Cheap Games. Canada obviously made the wrong choice, so next time you're visiting the doctor, remember, you could have had cheap games instead" --deadend, EvAv forums, ages ago

The tables have turned. You got healthcare, we gots cheap games.

The life expectancy of Americans is among the lowest of developed countries, and is falling annually.

The US likely has the worst health care of any developed nation. Especially due to making it so expensive that only the rich can afford to get sick.

The US has excellent healthcare, it just isn't available to everyone.

FYI - Watchdogs 2 is $49.99CDN right now on Amazon with free shipping via Prime.
