I raised this issue before, that Amazon seems to charge a higher price on S&S items when they actually ships. Other pointed out they subsequent shipment price does change to the latest price at the time. Fine, I could have missed the email confirmation before the entire S&S ships so I watched closely this time.
So I got on this Izzy soda deal here and got the initial email:
Item(s) Subtotal: $16.52
Shipping & Handling: $0.00
Subscribe & Save: -$2.48
Your Coupon Savings: -$4.96
Total before tax: $9.08
and now I just got the before shipment email:
IZZE Sparkling Juice, Clementine, 8.4 oz Cans, 24 Count
Price : $14.04 (after 15% discount)
which matches the price as shown on the S&S status page of $13.59 + tax
btw, this is the first time I ordered this product on Amazon. So, which price am I actually getting charged?!
