Amazon Changes Price Drop Refund Policy
Amazon is now changing the way they handle price drops. It used to be that if you bought an item and then the price dropped within seven days, you could contact customer service and get a partial refund for the amount the price fell. But apparently this will no longer work – unless you are buying a television.
The written policy has always been – just for televisions. Evidently anyone else who received a partial refund was given an exception to the rule. But it appears that Amazon isn’t granting those exceptions anymore.
“Amazon.com consistently works toward maintaining competitive prices on everything we carry and will match the price of other retailers for some items. Amazon.com will price match eligible purchases of televisions with select other retailers. For all other items, Amazon.com doesn’t offer price matching.”
Sad day in the price match world 🙁
