Mike Segar/ReutersThe Insider Picks team is always on the lookout for deals, but they are rarely as easy to spot as this one from Amazon.

Today, Amazon customers can receive $8.62 off of any purchase totaling more than $50 by entering the code “BIGTHANKS” at checkout.

The deal comes as a celebration and thank you to Amazon’s customers after the company scored the top spot in the Harris Poll of Corporate Reputation, beating out brands, like Wegmans, Johnson & Johnson, and Apple.

Amazon received a score of 86.27, a record high in the 18-year history of the poll, hence the oddly specific discount. While I have little understanding of what precisely that score means in context, the most pertinent information here is that you can save a few bucks on almost any purchase you make today.

While the deal excludes a few items including video games, digital content, and Amazon gift cards, everything else on the site is fair game for you and your wallet. Just remember to use the code “BIGTHANKS” at checkout. And if you need some ideas on where to start, here are a few of our favorite Amazon-centric posts.

Between this and the recent announcement that the minimum for free two-day shipping for non-Prime members was dropped to $35, it’s been quite a good week for online shoppers.
