    But when you are in the returns period, it costs them more to get you to return the item. Not only do they have to pay for return postage, but they then end up with a used item which they have to sell at a reduced price. I've had generally good luck with getting a credit for the difference

    Probably only if it was actually sold by Amazon rather than a third party.

    yes - you don't get free returns on any item you purchase from Amazon
    .. you return a ninja ,and the postage costs you £25, to save £25 on a now reduced product.

    AO share price hit 25% !([email protected]) because they have seen poor supply, and also expect soft market , doesn't bode well when black friday finally arrives.

    I literally just did this item I bought was 50% cheaper.
    Just rebought it and returning the old. Free return Amazon prime.
    Would be easier if they just credited but hey let's waste tons of money and co2 on shipping costs which are probably Close to the item cost.

    Doesn't that depend on the reason for return, item not as described is usually free. Maybe not for all third party sellers as I don't return much but in general I've very rarely had to pay.

    Any good deals on beauty advent calendars? Saw a good one on John Lewis yesterday but was out of stock in a flash.

    I got the MAC one. Usually get the M&S one.

    These things sell out fast even the MAC one at £135 sold out pretty much on release day.

    Amazon are probably one of the most data driven companies in the world. There will be a reason they do it this way.

    If it were done to be easy by issuing refunds instead they'd be inundated I guess. They're offering a returns window to match or better industry standard. It wouldn't be in their interest to offer a guaranteed lowest price within x days of purchase or the difference refunded unless they could spin it as an additional paid purchase protection insurance.

    Indeed, can you imagine all the scripts that would link people to camelcamelcamel for their recent purchases and let them know if there has been a reduction.
