I bought a Delta 28-206 14" Band saw through Amazon last month. It
was $499.99 at the time, minus a $50 off promotion. Yesterday I saw
post on the group talking about the same saw at a much lower price. I
check Amazon and now the price is $379, with a $75 off promotion
available (though the code didn't work on it for me when I tried it).
I was already peeved a bit to begin with because if the saw had been
priced a penny higher it would have qualified for $100 off instead of
$50, but this was just too much. I sent Amazon customer service a
polite email yesterday, not expecting anything. I woke up to this in
my inbox today:
"The discounts we offer for items on our web site do vary from time to
time. I've checked your order, and found that we now offer a greater
discount on "Delta 28-206 1 HP 14" Professional Band Saw, Closed
Stand" than at the time you placed your order.
Since this item was shipped so recently, I have requested a refund of
$120.99 to your credit card. This amount reflects the difference
between the price you were charged and the discounted price. The
refund should be processed in the next few days and will appear as a
credit on your next billing statement."
Wow! I would go and buy another tool from them, except I already did
and it's due for delivery tuesday ;)
