As of right now, there are only small pre-order bonuses available to gamers who pre-order copies of Pokemon Sword and Shield. On Amazon and Best Buy, these pre-order bonuses are essentially the same, the only thing different is the location of pre-order. Pre-ordering from Amazon or Best Buy will get you $10 back on your order, though both offers require you to have a membership.

At Best Buy, your $10 back comes in the form of rewards points. On Amazon, you’ll get $10 credited to your Prime account to use however you like. Overall, this bonus makes it so that you’re getting Pokemon Sword and Shield at $50 (USD) rather than $60 (USD). While it’s a minor discount, $10 is still $10. If you plan to pre-order Pokemon Sword and Shield via The Pokemon Center, you’ll receive a Plush Key Chain Gift.
