First of all, I need to preface this by saying that I don’t work for Amazon. This blog is not intended to be an Amazon fan blog. It’s just … kind of turned out that way. I have some other posts in the pipeline that don’t involve Amazon, like a review of Google Inbox and our newly-purchased Roomba.
But, in the meantime, here’s a little more Amazon fanboy’ing. I just received an automatic refund to my account b/c the price dropped on my Roomba about 3 weeks after i bought it. I thought the policy was 1 week, but it’s clearly been raised. This happened seamlessly, without me even knowing a price drop had occurred. Cool, huh?
Here’s the email I received:
We’re writing to let you know that we recently offered a lower price on iRobot Roomba 780 Vacuum Cleaning Robot for Pets and Allergies. We’ve issued a refund of $29.01 on Order #xxxx-xxxxxxxxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxxx.
Refunds are applied to the payment method used for the original purchase and typically complete within 2 to 3 business days. Thanks for buying this from Amazon.com. We’re happy we could offer you the additional discount.
