Amazon No Longer Offers Price Drop Guarantee!

That’s right, according to The Consumerist [3], who received an email from a reader, the Amazon Price Drop guarantee [4] is gone for items purchased after September 1st, 2008. Booo!

Here’s the email:

Hello from Amazon.com.

Thank you for contacting us to take advantage of our Post-Order Price Guarantee.

I’ve confirmed that we now offer a greater discount on item than at the time you placed your order.

Since your purchase shipped within the past 30 days, I’ve requested a refund of $5.78 to the original payment method used for your order.

This amount reflects the difference between the price you were originally charged for the item and the current price offered by Amazon.com. This refund should be processed in the next few days.

Only orders placed before September 1, 2008 are eligible for a price difference refund under the Post-Order Price Guarantee policy. As of September 1, 2008 we are no longer offering discounts if prices change on our website after you make a purchase.

Thank you for shopping at Amazon.com—we hope you’ll visit us again soon.
