Amazon Canada - question about promo links

Has anybody ever seen this from pic below limited time deal? Like the deal isn't all that great but they're something that makes it all strange, can you notice what it might be?

I saw a auto part that said the same thing, but it was no deal. The dealership sells it for cheaper.

Like most "lightning deals", it's just another way to push a crappy item at a bad price. They're trying to get you to impulse buy for fear of missing out (Fomo marketing). Just ignore it like their fake list prices.

Yeah, okay, but how can they all have the same rating?

They all have the same rating because Amazon grouped them together on a product page and combined the reviews. In your example, they're grouped under "Color Name". Sometimes there are multiple different groups on a single page, where items in each group have the same amount of customer reviews.

Alright thanks for that explanation, just found it too be a little odd
