YMMV: Amazon offering product discounts when you select No Rush Shipping

This is YMMV! While surfing around on Amazon I noticed a new promotion on some product pages. Amazon offers you a discount on products IF you select “No Rush Shipping” instead of a faster shipping option. I tested this with a Prime account, a non-Prime account, and without being logged in, and all three show the same promotion. However, Amazon runs all kinds of experiments on offers, so I have no way of knowing how well spread out these are.

Here is an example. You get offered a $10 off discount on the current price of the 2TB Western Digital External Hard Drive. What’s interesting the discount varies. For example, the 4TB is $7 off instead of $10 off.

Here’s a screenshot to make sure I’m not making it up 🙂

With Black Friday 2017 just three weeks away, perhaps these promotions are designed to help optimize their shipping and delivery?

(ENDED) Free shipping: 32GB Sandisk Ultra Fit Flash for $10, 4TB WD External HDD for $100

These sales ended, the prices are $12 and $110 respectively as of 11/2/17 recheck…
