I come bearing bad news, friends. Amazon has done away with their 7-day price protection policy. There’s one exception: TVs. If you buy a TV from Amazon and then it goes on sale, you can request the difference.
I confirmed the death of Amazon price adjustments this morning:
Once you make a purchase at Amazon you can’t get an adjustment if the price drops or if you see a lower price somewhere else. Use CamelCamelCamel (a site dedicated to tracking fluctuations in Amazon pricing) to make sure you’re getting the lowest price. The site not only allows you to see the historical price fluctuations of any Amazon product, but it also lets you set price drop alerts for items you want to buy.
