Default Amazon 10% off high-definition titles reduced to 5% off now?

Has anyone else noticed that the 10% off for high-definition purchased is now only 5% off? I have had this happen on two different orders over the last few days.

Here's an example:

Items: $19.95
Shipping & Handling: $0.00
Promotion Applied -$1.00

Total Before Tax: $18.95
Estimated Tax: $0.00
Order Total: $18.95


Normally I would get $1.99 off this order instead of $1.00.

Am I the only one this is happening to?

By golly, I just tested this out and found the same reduced discount. Not sure what's going on, except that the discount has been pretty wonky in the past. I've had one or two instances where the discount dissapeared completely for a day or two, only to mysteriously return again.

Of course this special discount was supposed to be discontinued over 4 months ago, so its difficult to complain too much

Yeah, that's true, but it is sad to see the discount go... even though it isn't a huge discount, it is still a big factor in my purchasing.

I love Amazon, but my discount(Which is now 0%) has bounced around so much in the last week, they sure do things differently at Amazon.

Thanks for the extra 4 months , I guess someone forgot to flip the switch in Jan!!

Just noticed it happening to me as well.

I also thought it was going to end in January, so I'll take the extra few months no problem.

I called today. They're checking into it.

The only I've notice it on so far is "Blades of Glory" Blu-ray. It gave me 5% off.

They're supposed to send me an email about it.

They saw my other orders with the extra 10% off.

OK now I am back to 5%, I wonder what the formula is to determine sales and discounts?

I wonder that too... I have been a steady 5% for a while now. Perhaps they are just trying to reduce it for a while before eliminating it entirely.

I wonder if the studios were paying Amazon to reduce the prices to stimulate sales and if they are lowering their payments.
