I’m going to assume that the first question that popped into your mind reading the headline was, “Why $8.63?”, so let’s get that resolved for you right away. Amazon earned the top spot in the Harris Corporate Reputation Poll for the 2nd year in a row and this year set a record high with a score of 86.27, hence the $8.63, and praise be to mathematics they did actually round up that last penny.
The poll surveys 23,000 people across the U.S. on their opinions on corporations across 6 metrics: Emotional Appeal, Workplace Environment, Products & Services, Financial Performance, Vision & Leadership and Social Responsibility. Amazon was one of four tech companies to make the top 10 this year, with Apple, Google and Tesla slotting in behind them at Nos. 5, 8 and 9, respectively.
You can check out the full results and poll on the Harris website if you are interested, but let’s get on to that discount.
Today only, if you order at least $50 worth of anything on Amazon, you can knock $8.63 off the total by entering “BIGTHANKS” into the promotion code box at checkout. So go ahead and load up that cart and save yourself some cash to help Amazon celebrate its big day.
