Update: This deal is now dead. However if you bought one while the deal was alive you’ll want to read the reports from several people on DDF and DDFB.
Here’s how it works.
For a limited time the Amazon Kindle , the Kindle Paperwhite, and the Kindle Fire HD are $20 off the list price and the Kindle Fire HDX is $30 off the list price. The 16GB Kindle Fire HD is $40 off list price. This promotion is open to all.
Amazon gives price adjustments within 7 days, so by chatting with Amazon reps, people have been able to get a refund due to the “price drop” that happened today off of the list price. Apparently the adjustments are being made despite the $50 or $75 targeted discounts that people got off of the list price.
In other words the Kindle’s list price is $69 and targeted people got $50 off, dropping the price to $19. Today it is $49 for all. What people are reporting is that they have been getting Amazon chat reps to make a $20 adjustment to match the price drop of $69 to $49. Effectively making the price they paid negative $1.
Anyway, YMMV of course. But that’s one crazy price adjustment policy. Post a comment if you try for an adjustment.
