Pre-Ordered Item Price Increase?



I preordered the following on August 10th, 2019 and for $64.99 before tax and notice the price has increased to $74.99 before tax. I was wondering if my preorder will still be honored at the $64.99 price?

Re: Pre-Ordered Item Price Increase?

You should still expect to see the lower price. Conversely, if the price had lowered after you placed your pre-order, then you'd be charged the lower price instead. The Entertainment Pre-Order FAQs go into more detail about this below.


Q: Can you ensure the price listed at the time the pre-order is placed will remain the same?

A: Yes and no. When a price is assigned to a pre-ordered item, we are reasonably certain it will remain at that price. However, from time to time--given how far in advance we make items available to our customers--a price change will occur. If this happens, you will always receive the lower of the two prices. For example, if you order an item for $49.99 and the pre-order price is later dropped to $39.99, you will be charged only $39.99. If you ordered the item at $49.99 and the price rises to $59.99, you still pay only $49.99. When you place a pre-order, you are assured our lowest pre-release price.
