Amazon discontinued their price protection policy, 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.

A More with Less Today money-saving tip…..

How do you organize your receipts? You must be able to furnish an original receipt to get the difference back. If you are a frequent customer, you may want to have customer service simply scan your old receipts to see if anything has gone on sale. I have done this with great success at Target.

Keep your receipts and get money back if the price drops! If you know of any other price protection policies to share, please let me know! If this is useful to you, please use the share buttons and pass it on.
