If you know of any other price protection policies to share, please send me a comment.
Amazon discontinued their price protection policy last year. However, they did give me a $60 credit when the price of the Kindle I bought dropped by $60.00. It doesn’t hurt to ask.
For items ordered online, check the store’s website.
