Many people out there might not realize this, but Amazon has an ongoing promotion that saves Prime subscribers 20% on video games they preorder ahead of launch. In other words, if you’re an Amazon Prime member and you buy new video games from anywhere other than Amazon, you’re crazy. This coming Friday, July 13, there are two hot new Nintendo Switch games coming out and that means there will be a rush to snag them. That also means today is your last day to preorder them from Amazon and get them on Friday or Saturday with free two-day Prime shipping.

One is Octopath Traveler, which just so happens to be the #1 best-selling new game on Amazon right now. And the other is Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, which just so happens to be the #2 best-selling new game on Amazon. They’re both going to be fantastic, and you’re going to end up buying them anyway, so why not order them right now and save 20%? Of note, if you’re not already a Prime member you should sign up for a free 30-day trial immediately so you can take advantage of these deals and everything coming on Prime Day 2018 next week.
