Crutchfield never discounts anything. That's the current list price. Denon is unloading that 2015 AVR model because its 2016 model-year replacement (AVR X2300W) is now becoming available, although still in somewhat short supply in some areas.
If you call some other authorized Denon dealer on the phone, they'll be able to quote a lower price if they can still get you one. They just aren't allowed to publish in public anything other than list price.
P.S. the 2200 is a fine receiver, but be sure to check its feature list to make sure it has what you want. Some people prefer the next higher model, the AVR-X3200W, because it has pre-amp outputs, allowing you to add external amps if you want. It's also being discounted. My understanding is that the 3300 won't be available for a few more weeks, though.
Marantz SR7009 avr + MM9000 amp --> Atmos 7.1.4
Fronts=NHT 2.9+AC2, FH+TM=DefTech PM1000, LCR+TM amped
