Amazon removes its 20 percent preoder discount on games

Pay now or kiss Twitch Prime’s no-advertising perk goodbye starting Sept 14 Amazon Prime will no longer offer 20% off games, company switching to $10 gift card with select titles

Luckily though, Amazon is once again following Best Buy's lead and will begin offering a $10 promo credit with the purchase of select video games beginning August 28.

Cutting corners: One attractive perk to being an Amazon Prime member besides the free shipping is discounts on pre-orders for upcoming video games and some newer but already released titles.

The company announced the upcoming change in an email to Prime members, noting that all pre-orders placed on or after August 28 will no longer receive a 10% discount, while any pre-orders placed before August 28 will still be eligible to receive the discount until the game is shipped.

The previous Prime policy was a flat 20% discount on video game pre-orders, so Prime members would save $12 on a $60 game. And before you think you can take advantage of this, the credit is canceled if you return the game.

Some big changes are coming to gamers with Amazon Prime subscriptions.

"Advertising is an important source of support for the creators who make Twitch possible", the company said in a blog post announcing the move.

Just like with nearly every other entertainment platform, Twitch has announced that their Prime subscription service will be removing its universal ad-free viewing status, including advertisements for all new members starting September 14.

Other Twitch Prime benefits like free monthly games, in-game loot and chat badges are not being taken away.

Twitch Prime is a great way to earn a load of extra goodies if you consume a lot of content on the streaming service. This change will strengthen and expand that advertising opportunity for creators so they can get more support from their viewers for doing what they love.

If you're still looking to get an ad-free experience across all channels, you can subscribe to Twitch Turbo, which is a $9 per month service. In other words, you have a week to pre-order games and still get the 20% off discount.
