Interesting. I wonder what the thought process was. Ripping CDs to computers is easy enough that I would think that most people who wanted digital versions of their CDs would have done that. I guess it's good for new purchases (waiting for the CD to come in the mail)

I don't see how this would motivate anyone to buy physical who otherwise wouldn't

This does nothing for me at all.

Also, why not offer FLAC? Or at least non-shittily encoded mp3s? When is Amazon gonna get its head out of its ass about encoding?
Amazon doesn't know what FLAC is

Yeah I guess you're right. But seriously, they should hire someone who actually knows at least a little bit about encoding...a lot of their mp3 albums are supposedly VBR but look like whack-as-fuck mutt rips, some actually are mutt rips and are partially 256 and partially VBR, and they've also been known to sell transcoded stuff before. Some shit man, some shit.
I usually only buy digital through Bandcamp or straight from the label for the same reason. I think anything I have on my computer that came from Amazon is the result of one of their $2 mp3 promotions
