5 Saving Hacks For Video Games
For those who can’t afford the latest title, or just don’t want to dish out $60 for a game; I’ve got you covered. Here are 5 ways that you, and everybody else, can save on games.
1. Xbox and Playstation sales
If you own a Playstation or Xbox, you’ll probably have noticed that you can occasionally find sales for many games during certain times throughout the year. Some of these discounts include up to as much as 80% off on games. So, be sure to check them out. Many popular games go on sale during the year.
It’s not always the best idea to buy the newest game right after release. You’ll end up spending less money if you wait. New games tend to go on sale a couple weeks or maybe a month or two after its initial release. “NBA 2K20”, the latest installment of the “2K” series, dropped for $60 on September 6th, 2019. It is a prime example of this. As of April 22nd, 2020, “NBA 2K20” is around $30. If you can hold off on buying that new game for the moment, your wallet will thank you.
3. Amazon Prime
Not only does an Amazon Prime membership give you many perks, like FREE fast shipping, unlimited music streaming, and much, much more; It also gets you 20% off all pre-release video games, for those who must have their precious games on release day. If you want to save some cash, consider getting an Amazon Prime subscription. Aside from the 20% off on pre-release games, it offers so much more.
4. Buy Used Games
Second-hand games offer some of the best deals you could possibly get. Second-hand games could range from just a few dollars less to half the original price, or even less. Though nothing is wrong with most of these used games, the price immediately falls as soon as it is used. If there is an issue with the used game you bought, you can just take it back for an exchange or return it for no extra cost. Go for used video games!
5. Try It Out First
If you’re set on buying a game, I’d recommend renting it before anything else. You can easily find out if that certain game is worth the commitment or not. Renting other games is a cool way to discover new games as well. Websites like GameFly let you rent many kinds of games at a cheap cost. Check it out.
