99 Cents For Release Day Delivery From Amazon
I’ve been a fan of Amazon for a long long time and it looks like I’m going to like them even more. The reason for it is the drop in the release day delivery rate.
Amazon is known for its frequent $10- and $20-off deals. And to establish its name in the gaming market, Amazon told customers via email that it would drop release day delivery rates of certain video games from $5.99 to just 99 cents.
This news is even more interesting with 2 huge games being released in the upcoming weeks. The first one is Halo Reach, which you can now buy for between $59,99 and $149,99 (plus the 99 cents for the release day delivery) and it will be out on September 14th.
The second game is the one we’ve been waiting for eagerly for a while now, Call of Duty: Black Ops. Depending on which version you buy, you pay between $29,99 and $149,99 (plus the 99 cents for the release day delivery). As we all know, Call of Duty: Black Ops will be out on November 9th.
All in all I think the drop in the release day delivery rate will convince more gamers to get a copy of their favorite game from Amazon instead of their usual shop. What do you think about the drop in the release day delivery rate? Do you think more people will order their games from Amazon, or isn’t this going to make a difference?
And what about you? Will the drop in the release day delivery rate make any difference to you? I’d like to hear your thoughts.
