Apparently concerned that it’s not already doing enough to undermine local physical retailers across the country, Amazon.com announced it will pay customers up to $5 to go into a local store, scan an item, walk out, and buy the same item on Amazon. Please don’t do this cheap, sad thing. To get 5 percent off, up to a max of $5, you’re supposed to use Amazon’s “Price Check” iPhone and Android app to scan in the bar code of certain qualifying items and then indicate what price the item is being sold at. This gives Amazon valuable intelligence on how various retailers are pricing various items.
Read the article then come back and leave a comment. What do you think is this good or bad or can it be both?
