Kindle Price Drop! You may be entitled to a $40 refund!

http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html

Amazon.com has a 30-day price-matching guarantee. The Kindle's price dropped to $359 today (or maybe yesterday). For those who want to buy a Kindle, it's a great time. To those who have bought one in the last 30 days, apply for your $40!

Sent an email this morning and 2 hours later they let me know I would be credited. I have only had one for 5 days.

Requested the $40 refund and received an affirmative within an hour of the request (via email). That's prompt service. I've had my Kindle about a week. $$ will be credited to my credit card. Yay. More money to buy Kindle books

I'm guessing because the title is letting Kindle owners know they may be entitled to a credit. It's kind of a PSA.

I just emailed my other half to get in on this. I've only had mine a week and a half.

Many thanks. Sent an email to amazon yesterday, got a reply within 1 hour. Confirmed that I was eligable. This morning another email saying the money had been refunded. I bought my kindle on the 8th May.

Thanks.
