So, I am getting some stuff from the US. 

 

I have been watching 5 items closely for specials, set some price alerts etc. 

 

Time was getting tight, so I ordered from Amazon (My preferred supplier) 2 days ago. 

 

Today 2am I get an email from Amazon saying my items have shipped. 

 

Today 2:12am I get a price alert on 1 item which is $25 USD cheaper

 

Today 2:31am I get a price alert on another item $25 USD Cheaper

 

Today 3:01am I get a price alert on third item $50 USD Cheaper!

 

 

 

Doh!

Amazon used to be very good about refunding after shipping; try contacting them about it.
*heard they may have changed policy, so maybe try several people?

Unfortunately the price drops are with other companies like best buy.

Everything I buy is cheaper the next day. Told my friends not to buy anything new until I have one, because the price ALWAYS drops straight afterwards.

On this topic we had some family over from Ireland, they picked up some All Blacks gear on the Thursday, one on the items they later realised was the wrong size.

 

We took it back and changed it over for the correct size, not only was the process quick and easy when we changed it over there was 25% off that day so they also gave them a refund of the difference, all without being prompted!

 

Good on you Rebel Sport!

Yeah, we have had some good experiences like that with RS too. Some bad ones though when they overfilled a ball (seriously) and it was a hot day. Exploded in the car, nearly caused a car accident.

Had an interesting thing like that at Bunnings, where I bought a bunch of LED's (@ $20 a pop), a couple blew after less than a year, so I took it back and they were about half the price so go the cash difference...awesome when it works in your favour....dumb when it doesn't :(
