I would get an incomplete picture with the information provided in the OP post with regards to the regularly available price for this item.
Hi Steeve Smilie good morning to you

I wasn't saying that Amazon usually charges $21, I was simply showing that current comparison to another store (Walmart) is $21.
Google Shopping price comparison shows other stores at $21 (see here [google.com])

Saying the regular or comparison or current price (e.g. the reference price) of this product is $21 is as technically correct as Amazon listing their reference price as $21 by changing the price for 24 hours prior to the price drop.

If I were considering this product I would want to know the non-manipulated pricing information: the effective savings is about ~15% ($2.58) rather than ~40% ($8.08) from the true reference price. In this case, I can consider other options more carefully without worry about missing a big sale.

I wouldn't be posting this if the price were available last month or even 3 days ago but this appears to be a planned price change that happened from 5am yesterday to 5am today. I read the forum to avoid these types of business strategies that attempt to manipulate my evaluation of a product's value when making a purchase decision.

Haven't had my coffee yet Smilie.
