Amazing. No worries about comparison shopping, no anxiety about waiting until the book is released to see if it’s going to be cheaper elsewhere, just a completely automated system that ensures customers get the best possible deal, even after they’ve placed their order.
Kudos to Amazon.com, again.
Imagine if your cellphone bill worked this way, btw…
