1.) Use the purchase Gift Certificate option rather than the regular membership option. Buying 2+ month certificates is much cheaper than paying regular membership each month.
2.) Add one released game that you want to the top of your queue.
3.) Fill the rest of your queue with games that have NOT come out yet.
By keeping only one released game in your queue, you ensure that you will receive it when you want it. Furthermore, having unreleased games in your queue will ensure that you will get them as they become available.
