One thing I forgot to point out in my “Effort to Be More Personable” post relates to refunds from Amazon. For example, if you bought a Kindle in the last 30 days for $259, I am sure you are a little bit peeved you didn’t get in on the new price of $189. I would, as $70 can still buy a few things – imagine if you are one of those who bought it the day before the price drop?
Historically, Amazon has refunded the price difference between the old and new price – last year, my Dad had that happen to him when they had the price decrease to $259. He called Amazon’s Kindle customer service department (1-866-321-8851) and explained how he was disappointed he paid the higher price. Amazon promptly refunded him the difference between what he had paid and the new price.
To me, that makes sense as you have the right to return it within 30 days. If everyone did that, then ordered another one at the new price, Amazon would have a restocking inventory nightmare.
If you got burned with the new pricing, why not give them a call? After all, it might add $70 to your pocket!
