How to Get an Amazon Price Adjustment
Update Fall 2022: Amazon has changed their price adjustment policy several times over the years, and continue to do so today. What you can get a price adjustment on is constantly changing. But our method to getting a price adjustment on Amazon is still worth giving a try.
In every amazon post, we add a line at the bottom reminding you that amazon prices change quickly. Sometimes this works to your advantage and sometimes it works to your disadvantage. I recently purchased a cool new Lego Minecraft set for my kids. The next day I noticed that the price had dropped down to $34.99! I was super bummed that I did not get to save the extra money on this purchase.
One of our Facebook friends pointed out that you can request a refund for the price difference.
So I decided to give it a try and it worked! I’m super excited to share it with you!
By the way, if you want to automate Amazon price adjustments, check out Paribus! They do everything for you! 😀
How to get an Amazon Price Adjustment:
Go to the Amazon help page. Click on the Need More Help at the bottom, then Contact Us.
You will then have to log in to your account and the following page will appear. Your most recent purchases will appear below. If you do not see the purchase that you are inquiring about click on the button that says, “Choose a Different Order”.
You will then see your other recent purchases in a pop up box. Select the item that you are inquiring about and click “done”.
You will then see a drop downs menu form. In the first box choose, “Returns and refunds”, then a second box will appear. In the second box select “Other return or refund issue”. Then in the fill in the blank type, “Partial Refund Price Change”. Then you can email them, (this is what I did) call them, or start a live chat. All three methods work, but I prefer the email. All three methods should work.
If you choose email just explain what you would like done, and click “send email”. I have posted my example below.
I hope this is helpful for you. I was sure excited to learn about it. I have found that amazon is has fabulous customer service. Each time I have contacted with them they have been very helpful and they always resolved my issues. Come to think of it I think I got a $10 price adjustment last year via live chat for Just Dance 4! So if something goes wrong with your order don’t be afraid to ask for help at the amazon help page.
Items to note:
