pennywatching • Did you know that Amazon has a program where if the price of your purchase drops within 30 days you can apply for a refund of the difference? neither did I. Here’s a site called Amazon Price Watch which helps you watch the prices at Amazon: “
This website is designed to check prices daily. If the price of your items drop, then you will receive a single message detailing the new price. If the price drops within 30 days of purchasing an item, you can request a refund for the difference. The e-mail you will receive when the price drops, has a link to the support page where you can request your refund.”
