Amazon instant discount for no-rush shipping

+3 Deal Score

I searched SD and couldn't find anything related to this; if it's a repost please delete.

I was shopping for a cutting board and came across this product:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00005JRI9

it's a low price for 3 cutting boards, but the interesting thing I noticed was the following:

"Save an extra $1.46 when you choose FREE No-Rush Shipping at checkout. "

seems amazon is testing a new no-rush shipping program, instead of giving out prime pantry or digital credits or even the $3 general credit. The discount was applied immediately. Maybe this is their way of combatting Walmart's new pickup discount?

I found more info here:

I dont understand, isn't this a convoluted way to charge extra for prime shipping?
