Found a way around the Prime vs Globalsaver thing, dun think it's an exploit but it seems like a natural and "innocent" approach. I contacted CS to cancel my WD2 PO (due in Nov) and stated I wanted to upgrade to the Gold Edition. So CS canceled my PO and told me I could go ahead to order the WD2 Gold Ed.

So I effectively broke the Globalsaver requirement for the previous order (Deus Ex, Tomb Raider, WD2) since I don't actually have to re-order WD2.

Depending on your idea of "Worth", Deluxe physical editions purchased from Amazon Prime might be something for peeps to consider since you get a 20% discount on the Season Pass as well.

Have you ordered the wd2 before they ship your tr? I mean they could always slap the shipping cost on your invoice when they ship tr.

That's why I still don't wanna waste my free prime on standard edition stuffs. Still waiting for a collectors edition to catch my eyes. Actually the last guardian ce looks good. Too bad pre-order sold out.

Prime's 20% discount for videogames is off the List Price. Which won't be a very good deal if the game itself goes on discount. Case in point, Tomb Raider is now US$51, but Prime members buy it for US$48, which is 20% off the List Price of $60. If you sign up for Prime just to get the game at the discount, then you end up paying more for the game, US$8 more to be precise.

Yet another stark reminder not to pre-order games. I dodged a bullet with Mafia 3, and have since canceled my PO of Watch Dogs 2.

Ya I haven't re-pre-ordered WD2... think I won't liao. Skali released like Mafia 3 or No Man's Sky, half baked. Nowadays over-hyped games tend to be half-baked. Pre-ordering Tomb Raider and No Man's Sky both turned out to be mistakes.

If u wanna turn on your free Prime, from a cost savings pov, pre-ordering WD2 is a good deal cuz you get 20% off the game and the SP.

Why you say regret pre-order tomb raider leh? I tot it's quite a good game ma..

Sorry mate. Not interested in watchdog 2 and I don't buy season pass at original price one. In fact all the so called bad practise of the gaming industry, I totally avoid. E.g. preordering games, season passes, micro transactions...

Oh shit. I forgot... I have 2 preorders coming in the next 2 months. Cos kana enticed by that play ee spend 150 cash back 100 promo...

Regret only cuz of the price thing. I paid US$10.99 to renew for Oct to get this game, and I paid $48 for the game, so really I paid $59 but the price now is $51. So I overpaid $8.

All the fault of no man's lie I guess... Lol

But then even if you wanna buy it at 51, you still need something to add on to get the free shipping. Unless of course you got diapers to buy...
