Update your library with some amazing titles and accessories
You can never have too many video games, so Amazon’s annual Prime Day — actually two days this year, July 12 and 13 — is a great opportunity to add to your collection. Whether you prefer computer titles or chilling on the couch in front of a console, you’ll no doubt find something that piques your interest.
But remember that you can only take advantage of the steep discounts if you are a Prime member. It’s definitely worth signing up for, as you get access to all the deals, Amazon’s Prime streaming service and Prime Gaming.
Get free games on Prime Day
Amazon Prime members need to clear some hard drive space before Prime Day arrives. Not only will you get amazing deals on gaming hardware and accessories, but Prime Gaming is throwing in some free games, too.
There is already a huge selection of free games that include popular titles such as Far Cry 4, World Rally Championship 8 and a bunch more titles from independent developers. But free games on Prime Day include Need for Speed Heat, three “Star Wars” games that include “Star Wars” Republic Commando and the fantastic racing game GRID Legends. More titles are always being added, so check the library often — you might discover a gem a few weeks later.
Deals cover all gaming categories
The gaming deals that come with Prime Day aren’t just limited to titles. The entire gaming category will have steep discounts — anything from headsets and hard drives to keyboards and TVs.
Before Prime Day arrives, it’s a good idea to add gaming accessories and titles to your wishlist. That way, you’ll get a notification when an item’s price drops or when it’s featured in Amazon’s Deal of the Day. It makes it easy to then add items to your cart and check out before stocks sell out.
