Amazon brings back Gold Treasure Chest

I used to make a lot of purchases at Amazon from the gold treasure chest at the top right which offered special discounts on a list of items they think appeal to you. Then last year it seemed to have disappeared. Now I see it is back, and improved. Now you can hold on to one item while you step through the whole list, thus avoided the anguish of the 'optimal stopping problem'. I think they might suck me in again, except that the extra discounts seem to be quite minimal compared to my recollection of the past offers.
