And a real gem from Amazon. The online shopping giant has a little known price drop policy where if they lower the price on something you've bought within the past 30 days, they'll credit you with the difference.

If you've paid more than the current price, here's how to claim your money back:
1) Go to the 'Contact Us' section of the website
2) Go to 'Return and refund questions'
3) Select 'I have a question about returns that's not listed above'
4) Sign in
5) Do as instructed to claim!
Just bear in mind - this policy applies only to Amazon sales - not any Marketplace purchases.
