We come bearing bad news, friends. Amazon has done away with their 7-day price protection policy. Which brings some even sadder news for all of you Paribus users — Paribus no longer works with Amazon, with one exception.
You used to be able to get money back on your Amazon purchases if the price dropped within seven days. And Paribus users even got those refunds automatically. However, Amazon no longer offers price adjustments.
We confirmed the price adjustment change with Amazon support this morning:
Once you purchase at Amazon now, it’s final — no adjustments. We recommend using 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, it also lets you set price drop alerts for items you want to buy.
Feeling sad like I am? The good news is, Paribus still has your back with late delivery monitoring on Amazon purchases. If a package doesn’t arrive within its guaranteed delivery window, Paribus will automatically negotiate some type of recompense on your behalf (for example, a gift card or free shipping). The service is completely free. No catch.
