Pre-ordering Kindle books

A book that I want to read on my Kindle will be released soon. Is there any advantage in pre-ordering it?

I'm looking forward to the impending release of The Wise Man's Fear
enough that I'm probably willing to make an exception to the "never spend more than $10 for an e-book" rule (which I usually follow). As of today, it costs $14.99 to pre-order, and I'm trying to figure out if there's any incentive for me to do so.
Hive mind: what are your experiences with pre-ordering Kindle books? Do you think there's a reasonable chance that the price will change (in either direction) between now and just after the official release? Amazon doesn't give any guarantees about refunds if the price drops before the release date (as it does with hardcovers).
