    Thanks. I have a UK 1st pressing that I always thought sounded rather aggressive and with a digital sheen. I'll try this remaster and hope some additional warmth and some dialing back of that aggressive hard sound will have been done. At that price, might as well give it a go.

    oh well, I really only want the second album anyway.

    Maybe Amazon is trying to beat Walmart's price.

    Probably, they are simply coupons, with no ulterior motives behind them.
     
  8. It's an experiment by Amazon trying to beat the pricing bots that index every price drop by Amazon.

    That is what all these hidden coupons are about. The lower price never shows up in the item's pricing history. There are good reasons why Amazon wants this information kept hidden. I've honestly been surprised they haven't bought out CamelCamelCamel simply to shut it down.

    If it was up to Amazon, all pricing history would be kept hidden from customers.

    This actually makes sense.
    But it makes me wonder why their pricing goes up and down with no rhyme or reason.

    If you save items in your cart or saved for later then each time the price changes you get a message. Sort of an additional plug for the item. That’s my guess other when they’re price matching the competition, what little is left.

    I haven't received mine yet, but for about $12/LP, that's a pretty favorable way to check it out.

    I ordered this, arrived last week. Kind of a no brainer at this price given that I like Smashing Pumpkins a lot. This album is a pleasant surprise and well worth it.

    The price had shot back up above $20 but is down to $5.79 again. Temporarily out of stock but this seems like something which will show up again so placing an order shouldn't be futile.

    What are the good reasons they want that price and discount hidden? Just curious.

    I assume it’s a computer algorithm based on how many sold recently, how many on hand, wholesale cost.

    If customers know an item has been sold at a lower price, they won't buy at the higher price unless they need it quickly. They'll wait to buy when it returns to the lower price.

    Always a big IF though if it returns to a lower price, but I get your point.
