The watch face "faces" are a little too esoteric for me.

If that labels me as provincial, so be it. Kinda reminds me of the modern art that was so popular in the 70's when I was a child.

Still nicer than the Memoji watch faces though.

Historicalmly, apple was very strict with discounting. When they came out with the Apple Card, that offers a 3% discount on all apple purchases, the FTC required them to allow other authorized retailers to discount up to that discount at any time.

Retailers have been discounting Apple products quicker for quite a while. Microcenter is a retailer notable for doing it. Your claim doesn't make sense because the retailers aren't competing against cashback on the Apple Card. Take this exact situation. If you use the AC to purchase the watches from Amazon, you get the discounted Amazon price AND the 3% cashback from the AC.

Got a source for that claim?
Edit: As was pointed out, you don't get 3% back from Amazon purchases. Immaterial to the point of the claim of FTC requirement.
