Until recently, Amazon was offering a very good incentive for pre-ordering video games. For select games, every pre-order saw Prime members receive a 20 percent discount. However, the offer changed as August came to an end. Now Prime members get $10 of store credit with a pre-order. Target's new, albeit limited time offer is better, though.

As Polygon reports, Target looks to be testing a new pre-order promotion this week. On select titles such as Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Red Dead Redemption 2, and Battlefield V, every pre-order comes with a 30 percent discount "off a current game." So pre-order one game, then buy another with this discount attached.

Depending on what games you choose to buy that are already available, you could save as much as $18 on a $60 game. It still means you're paying $60 for the pre-ordered game, but opting to then buy another game you want brings with it a big saving.

For now, this is just a limited time promotion by Target which is set to end on Sept. 29. However, if it proves popular it could certainly come back. There's every chance Target is running this promo following Amazon's pre-order offer change and Best Buy Gamer's Club Unlocked cancellation (this also offer 20 percent discounts) to see if it can grab some more sales.

The 30 percent offer is available when pre-ordering any of seven forthcoming Switch games, 10 PS4 games, and 11 Xbox One games. The full list can be seen over on Target's video game pre-order page. You'll also notice some games, such as Forza Horizon 4: Ultimate Edition and FIFA 19, offer the 30 percent discount on the actual pre-order rather than another game.
