Whilst chatting with a friend of mine at the pub the other day he mentioned that he’d made a cool find on. But one that they want to keep quiet !
You see, he was trawling through the terms and conditions on Amazon’s website and found this :
“Amazon’s prices for released items will change from time to time based on a variety of factors. If Amazon’s price for an already-released item decreases within 30 days after we ship the item to you, we’ll be glad to refund the difference in price if you contact us within that 30-day period.”
So if I buy something today and next week Amazon reduce it by 20% then I can claim that 20% price reduction back in cash! No wonder they’ve concealed that deep in their Terms and Conditions. It could cost them loads of money!
But the question is how do you find time to keep going back and checking and rechecking to see if their Amazon buys have gone down ?
This set me off hunting around the Internet for options.
It appears that up until relatively recently the only way that these price drops could be located was either by actually recalling all the purchases you have made or by wading through all your email receipts one at a time. And then visiting Amazon to check if the price has dropped. Boring!
Then I discovered Price Protector.
All you have to do is to enter the item reference, the price you paid for it, the date you bought the thing (get these from your Amazon account page) and an email address. The site will then let you know if the product drops in price 30 days after you bought it. Then all you do is follow the simple instructions provided to ask Amazon for the refund.
It’s so simple I was astonished !
So if you fancy saving some dosh try out the price protector site and saving money!
