I would guess, it is oh maybe you don't know about this department so let's offer you a little money to try it.
But I've been offered Prime Pantry for over 9 months, so I already know.

I suspect you are correct. But it seems like a bad business strategy. Amazon is obviously offering credit because they save on the 'no rush' option. All these pantry and furniture credits do is push me to always use two day shipping. Maybe it would make sense to offer the pantry/furniture credit once (or perhaps for a month) and see if the customer bites. Then, if not, go back to the credit the customer actually prefers.

I suppose there's some bean counter in the basement dungeons of Amazon that would tell me I'm wrong though.
Pantry credits I can pretty much say I will never use, and I always opt for the two-day shipping when they're offered, even though I'm in no rush for my order. I'll go for the digital credit except in the rare case when I need my order quickly. I would take a $10 furniture credit even if I didn't have specific items already on my wish list, in the expectation that I might use it eventually.

You and me both, sister.

Yeah, a digital credit I could use on e-books I would take almost every time. I would never use $10 in furniture credit, but would happily take $1 digital credit.

It seems to be they would just be better off offering everyone $1 no-rush credit that could be used sitewide. But again, I'm certain someone with a sliderule has already proven me wrong.

That is why you keep getting it lol. The bot thinks maybe if they keep offering you will eventually fall into their web.

When I don't like what they are offering, I sometimes choose the option to send all items as they are available so they have to send multiple packages. I don't do that a lot, but if I am annoyed with them for any reason that's what I do. Otherwise I do like you and choose two day shipping even if I don't need it that quickly.

For anyone that's been offered a furniture credit how long does it stay active? If it's too short of a time it might not be worth it.

I almost never have more than one item per order--mostly because there's no need to consolidate orders to meet a free-shipping minimum threshold with Prime. And even if I am ordering several things the same day, I'll place separate orders just to see what no-rush perk I might be offered.

Amazon tends to consolidate packages anyway, though, when they're all coming from the same warehouse.

I've had times when I got to checkout and saw that I would receive it in more than two days and it's been one item holding the others back. I do buy multiple items because I tend to forget what I need. Or I started an order and get distracted. When I get back to it there's more stuff I wanted!

What do they say about doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results?

Seriously, if a customer has not taken the pantry credit once in nine months, maybe it's time to change your tactics.

Sorry...it seems like it's just totally random. I ordered 5 things between July 28 and July 30 using no-rush shipping, and they've all been delivered already, and the $5 in digital credits have been spent.
