Amazon’s giving Prime members stealthy game discounts

Amazon is now offering game discounts in yet another effort to call seduce you to a $99 Prime membership. If you’re thinking “what game discounts?”, that’s because the company rolled them out with little fanfare and is offering them in a rather sneaky fashion. When searching, all titles still show the regular prices for everybody. However, if Prime members carry a purchase through to the checkout page, they’ll finally see the discount. And it’s not just nickle and dime reductions on obscure games, as Destructoiddiscovered. You can find significant savings like $7 off the brand new Splatoon and a similar deal for Halo 5, which hasn’t even been released yet.

The only sign that the discount even exists is a note on qualifying titles saying “Members of Amazon Prime qualify for a lower price on this item when shipped and sold by Amazon.” We’re not sure why the retail giant is being so furtive about it, but you may want to jump on anything you like before it changes its mind.
