Thanks for posting, however, all games are 20% off for prime users for pre orders and within 2 weeks after release.

Looks like it. Just added the Final Fantasy preorder to my cart and showed $16 in prime savings.

It is still there, just not for the already E3 discounted games ie. Death Stranding, God of War etc.

The games that are not on sale on Walmart for 49.96 will be eligible for 20% off. It will say so on the product page under Promotions.

And now Amazon has changed it stealthily to 10% -- for example, if you look at the $100 Ni No Kuni II edition, it now says that with Prime, the preorder is $90 instead of $80. Already that I had to fight with them several times to get to apply the 20% discount, that really sucks. If it's only 10%, I may as well just start ordering from videogamesplus.ca again.

I just wanted to finally pre-order a game that I was thinking about and they changed it to 10% off, much to my disappointment.

There's less incentive to pre-order from them anymore. Might as well look for a deal in the flyers when the game is released.

First the discount on amazonbasics, now from 20% to either 10% or 0% (checked NHL 18, now no discount). Soon it will be free shipping as the sole benefit of prime.

Yeah, 10% off takes most of the motivation out of preordering. Guess it's back to waiting for E3 week for a decent discount.
