While a $10 discount may have initial appeal on new video game releases, many have found the shipping costs of sites like Amazon.com enough of a deterrent to just shop at brick-and-mortar stores. To supplement the discount on the game itself, Amazon has announced that it will offer release date delivery at $.99, down from the original $5.99. Current games taking immediate advantage of the price drop include LittleBigPlanet 2, Halo: Reach, Fallout: New Vegas, and Call of Duty: Black Ops.
One thought on “Amazon.com Drops Delivery Day Shipping Cost”
Well since I use Amazon Prime I really don’t get hit with that shipping price. Really though if the game you are pre-ordering is high profile enough they will get you the game on release day. If you use Prime then a lot of the time you won’t have to pay shipping, or if you do then it is like half price.
But this is good for those who don’t have Prime, as it reduces shipping (and for me I have to pay for Tax and shipping (sometimes shipping)) because I like in Seattle (home of Amazon.com).
