The offer expires tonight at 11:59 p.m. PT, so make some time to place your order over $50 today. There are some exclusions: the offer only applies to products sold by Amazon.com, and the discount doesn't apply to digital content; video games; Amazon gift cards; or orders placed via Alexa, Prime Now, Amazon Restaurants, or any mobile app other than Amazon Shopping.

A discount of $8.62 might seem super random, but Amazon has a good reason for that seemingly arbitrary figure. The company ranked No. 1 in the annual Harris Corporate Reputation Poll, earning a score of 86.27 percent, so it's offering the discount as a thank you to customers.

"We're energized by this recognition and will keep working and inventing on your behalf," Amazon chief Jeff Bezos said in a statement. "These accolades are a direct result of the whole team's obsession over customers, pioneering spirit, commitment to operational excellence and willingness to lean into bold bets."

    Harris Poll surveyed more than 23,000 people across the US on various aspects of corporate reputation, covering everything from products and services to financial performance and social responsibility. Amazon rated "excellent" in all areas, earning a record-high score for the 18-year survey.

    Amazon ranked above companies like Wegmans (which came in No. 2 with a score of 85.41), Publix Super Markets (82.78), Johnson & Johnson (82.57), Apple (82.07), and UPS (82.05). This is Amazon's second consecutive year at No. 1 and ninth straight year in the top 10.
