Since $7.99 - 30% equals $5,59, they basically sell them without profit?
I don't expect this to be a long-term deal. The terms of their agreement with S&S only changed within the last week or so; previously they couldn't discount at all.

My assumption is that they're selling "at cost" for now to hook purchasers, then will lower the discounts to a more sustainable level in the near future.
