Amazon kills 20 percent game preorder discount, you'll get $10 off instead

Amazon has announced that, effective August 28, Prime members will no longer receive 20% off of video game pre-orders. Next week, it'll be replaced with a different bonus system.

On that day, existing paid Amazon Prime (and thus Twitch Prime) subscribers will continue receiving an ad-free viewing experience on the site, which revolves primarily around video game live-streaming. You'll have 60 days to use the promo credit before it expires.

"More limited" has been the trajectory of the Amazon Prime pre-order deal for some time now. When it first started, Amazon offered the 20%-off deal to Prime members who bought a game within two weeks of launch. Members with monthly subscriptions will continue to get ad-free viewing until October 15.

One of Twitch's big perks for Amazon Prime members is going away: Universal ad-free viewing will no longer be part of Twitch Prime for new members, starting September 14.

It noted: Universal ad-free viewing will no longer be part of Twitch Prime for new members, starting on September 14.

However, the Twitch Prime program offers one free subscription to a Twitch channel, so users can still get ad-free viewing on a single channel if that creator has enabled that feature. "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". (Twitch Prime comes free with Amazon prime subscriptions.) In most cases the difference will only be a couple of bucks, but as a matter of principle it's not a great look.
