Did you pay $399 for your Kindle? then get you $40 back

40 dollars

You may be noticed that Amazon cut the price of the Kindle to $359 today, whilst $40 isn’t the big price cut many people people were hoping for, its still better than nothing. There is good news for you early adopters out there who paid the original $399, Amazon doesn’t mind giving you back the $40 extra you paid in the form of credit into your Amazon account.

Paul Robichaux, a Kindle owner wrote on his blog:

Excellent! Amazon dropped the price on the Amazon Kindle, which I’m still using quite a bit. (David has been trying to steal it to read that free Star Wars book I downloaded, too). The price is now $359, so I e-mailed them to ask for a price credit– which they promptly issued. That $40 will buy me at least four more books, O happy day.

You too can shoot Amazon customer support an e-mail asking for a price credit, just follow the link and then press the yellow contact us button on the right hand side. Good luck!

Let us know if you got your $40 back and what you purchased with it.

UPDATE: It appears that Amazon is only giving credit to the people who bought their Kindle on the 27th April onwards under their 30 day price drop policy, I apologise for any confusion.

    Amazon (twice) denied my request. First for a refund, then for a credit. I was told this falls under the 30 day price drop policy. Mine shipped on April 16th, and they won’t give it to me.

    They’re not just giving the $40 to anyone who asks, which was the tone of your post.

    Concur with Joe. Here’s what they said to me:

    Hello from Amazon.com.

    I’m sorry, but I can’t accommodate your request to honor this lower price for Amazon Kindle.

    As stated on our website, we can only honor price changes that occur within 30 days from the time your order is shipped.

    Ditto I bought mine April 24th, so within 3 days later of that 30 days and so I will not be getting that refund.
