Moneysaver: Lost Planet 3, Tropical Freeze, XCOM iOS, BuffyS

August is the cheapest month.

Welcome to another Moneysaver, featuring pre-orders on Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Wii Fit U, and Lost Planet 3, along with a nice discount on XCOM: Enemy Unknown for iOS. Most importantly, don't miss out on the even-better-than-usual free trial for Amazon Prime.

Here's our coverage of all the QuakeCon deals.

Free Trials of Amazon Prime and Hulu Plus

As you probably know, we're bullish about Amazon Prime around here. Amazon always offers 30-day Prime trial, but today that trial includes $10 credit for those who decide to sign on once the 30 days is up. Corey of Deals.Kinja put it best: "All-time number one no-brainer."

Hulu is just giving you two months for free.


Best Buy Pre-order Credit

Best Buy is offering its Reward Zone members $10 credit back on select PS3/PS4 and 360/One pre-orders. That results in many price lows/first discounts ever on some next-gen titles. Check out the selection here.
