Attention, soccer fans! FIFA 19's worldwide release is coming up on Sept. 28 for Xbox One, PS4, PC, and Nintendo Switch, but you may just want to shop early to get the biggest bang for your buck. We're taking a look at some of the current FIFA 19 pre-order options to see which stores have the best deals.
Choose Between Three FIFA 19 Editions
Pre-ordering FIFA 19 gets you exclusive access to certain perks depending on which edition of the game you choose. There are three editions of FIFA 19 available (Standard, Champions, and Ultimate) so you'll need to decide which best suits your preferences and budget. You can check out the specifics of each version on EA's website by following this link.
The Best FIFA 19 Pre-Order Deals (On-going)
- $10 coupon
- Trade-in credit for FIFA 18
- Free copy of Destiny 2 for PlayStation or Xbox
- $10 reward certificate and 20% off for Gamer's Club Unlocked members
If you already own FIFA 18, Best Buy may be your best pre-order option. Now through Sept. 30, the retailer is running an in-store trade-in offer that lets you trade in FIFA 18 for a $10 coupon toward FIFA 19. That's in addition to the game's trade-in value.
Plus, you'll receive a free copy of Destiny 2 for Xbox or PlayStation when you purchase the Standard or Champions Editions for either one of those consoles. But that's not all.
If you're a member of My Best Buy, you'll also receive $10 in reward certificates just for pre-ordering. Gamer's Club Unlocked members receive an additional 20% off. Now that's a slick deal.
As Slickdealer TheBigHouse points out, "For in-store pre-orders, the (Gamer's Club) discount is applied when you pick up and purchase your pre-order; for BestBuy.com pre-orders, the discount is applied when you check out."
Several of our forum users encountered issues when they initially tried to redeem this offer, so your mileage may vary (and you'll probably need a copy of the advertised promotion).
Slickdealer ralu, for instance, received a $10 coupon plus $9.38 for the trade-in for a total savings of $19.38. And CHENGY4037 "ended up getting a $10 gift card plus trade-in value, with free Destiny 2 as well."
- $10 off full price
- Slightly more expensive digital downloads
- Free shipping
Newegg is also running a sale on FIFA 19 pre-orders for the PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. Prices range from $49.99 to $89.99, and you'll get free shipping with your purchase.
- $10 promotional credit on most editions
- Potential trade-in credit
- Amazon credit card bonus for new accounts
Amazon is offering Prime members a $10 promotional credit when they pre-order most editions of FIFA 19 (the Ultimate Edition appears to be excluded). This credit will be sent 30 to 35 days after the game is shipped or digitally delivered.
Keep in mind that Amazon also offers trade-in credit when you ship the retailer select games and accessories for free. You can browse the payouts from a drop-down menu on FIFA 19 product pages.
Also, if you've thought about applying for an Amazon Visa, consider this: you'll receive a $50 or $70 Amazon gift card once you're approved that you could then use toward your new game.
