Anyone still getting the A9 discount from Amazon?

hard to search for "a9" ... so...

Anyone still getting this discount? Even using A9, I can't seem to get the discount to "pop up" anymore (i.e. pi/2 discount)

Here are the previous threads on A9 at Amazon. I was able to find them easily using "Amazon" and "search" as the subject.

Ok, ok, be smart - but "A9" doesn't work.

just do a search for a few days...it'll eventually come back.

A9 is set up so that you'll have to search at least once in a while or you'll lose the discount.

I lost mine for about a week(after not ordering anything from amazon for about a month), but searched the A9 for a few days and it magically reappeared.

The deal is that if you use their search engine enough times, you'll get a discount on orders at Amazon. As mentioned in this thread, you have to keep using their search engine to get the discount. And as Seeker said, it's Pi/2 (approx. 1.570795), so it's not much, but every little bit helps.

I got the discount on orders placed on the 5th, 6th, 11th and 12th of this month, but on it's not showing on the order I want to place now, so I'll search for the next few days and hope it comes back. (Gee, I order from Amazon too much).

It disappeared for me sometime in the past few days , but fortunately it was there last week when I placed a few STL orders. Guess I've a little searching to do, so I can get that little bugger back before I want to place another order.

I lost it for first two weeks of December but I have had ever since. Funny thing is that I have not been searching that much.

I'm still getting my discounts, but they're pretty small (like $1.98).
