I can't figure it out. Some items are cheaper the more you get, and some are more expensive! Even by those which are officially "smart cart" items

I don't know why it's like that but thankfully it helps me cap how much stuff I end up buying.

My guess is it might have to do with current inventory of the cheapest retailer. Or it could be there's an incentive to add an item from the same retailer to your cart, but not much incentive to keep on adding the same item. I usually find that 1 or 2 of each item is the cheapest. I'll sometimes buy 1 of each size for the best price.

Jet needs to continue tweaking the smart cart but hopefully they don't ruin prices with that.

1 to 2 is usually a huge jump in savings but if you by three it sometimes gives you less saving per item then 2.
Its a funny algorithm sometimes

Game theory would suggest that they have to include some randomness and illogical results to prevent you from figuring out the algorithm and optimizing it. My guess would be that if you treated counterintuitive changes as red herrings and excluded them, you could figure out the rules very quickly.

I just realized that the 35 minimum for free shipping goes by the original price and not by the price after savings in cart. So even if it goes to below 35 after instant savings it will still be free shipping

Just to get free shipping if I don't have enough in my cart I would add an item which Its cost is very high but savings takes up most of it and get free shipping even if I don't need the item

Haven't been following at all, but am I reading this correctly - they turned prices and shipping into a game. And y'all believe that this is a model that will succeed in the long term
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

no, they offer cheaper prices then amazon 94% of the time off the bat, and you have the possibility to get it even cheaper then that if you add stuff to cart,waive returns...
