Price drop policy at Amazon

Rob at BusinessPundit (via Mario) highlights a price drop policy at Amazon.

Did you know that if the price on something you buy drops within 30 days of your purchase date, Amazon.com will credit you the difference if you ask for it? It’s a not-advertised price drop policy that most people don’t know about and it’s saved me tons of money over the last few years.

Rob comments

I’m sure the reason they don’t hype it is that they don’t want people to use it. But I think it’s a big reason to buy from Amazon and they should promote it

Sounds to me like the promotion is being done for them… it’s not so easy to keep secrets like this anymore.
