Amazon stinks!

Has anyone else seen this "add to cart to see price" thing on Amazon?

Here's an example.

Perhaps they are trying to stop people price comparison shopping or using automated methods of downloading price lists. Either way it still seems fraudulent, or just plain BS.

Amazon's explanation says an additional discount is in effect, and this discount is calculated in the shopping cart. It still seems extremely shoddy, as in they are giving logged in people different prices based on what they've bought in the past. It seems this is called GROI, or gross return on inventory. It's still BS
