    Want to be the first to get the latest gadgets and gizmos? Amazon is a great place to preorder the latest products before they hit the market. But you might wonder if you’re getting the best deal possible, especially if the price changes a lot before the launch date. Don’t worry, Amazon has you covered with their Pre-order Price Guarantee. Here’s how it works and what you need to know.

    Amazon’s Pre-order Price Guarantee Details

    Whenever you see a product on Amazon that hasn’t been released yet and has a “Pre-order Price Guarantee” message on the page, you can order it with confidence. Amazon will charge you the lowest price that they offer from the time you place your order until the day the product is released. You don’t have to do anything else, Amazon will automatically adjust the price for you.

    This applies to digital content (digital games, software downloads, Kindle books, or Amazon music) too, as long as it has the “Pre-order Price Guarantee” message.

    What Are the Limitations?

    Of course, there are some rules and restrictions that you should be aware of. Here are some of them:

    1. The price match only applies to products sold by Amazon, not by other sellers or on other websites owned by Amazon
    2. The price match only applies to products that have the “Pre-order Price Guarantee” message on their page, not to all preorders.
    3. The price match does not stack with any other discounts, such as coupons or promotions

    What if There Is a Price Drop on the Day of the Release?

    If the product ships before the release date and the price goes down on the launch day, Amazon will automatically give you back the difference. This refund will be calculated based on the price difference when the product starts the shipping process before the release date and the price at the end of the day on the launch day. You’ll receive the refund on the same card you used for your purchase.
