Does sonystyle do price adjustments?

I bought my PRS-350 right before they droped the price by $20. I bought it at a sonystyle store. I am wondering if I bring in the receipt will they do a price adjustment? I know some stores do things like this but I have never shopped with sony before.

Thanks, Jen

Well, we'll see if they'll truly honor this. I purchased a PRS350 for my daughter 1-6-11 for $179.88, then applied a $50 coupon for a trade-in item. Then I saw the reader at Best Buy for $139.99 and called Sonystyle. The 350 I had purchased had not even shipped yet and they wouldn't honor the lower price. Something about "when we have an item on sale, we will not honor another seller's sale price." They refunded me $10, but wouldn't budge otherwise. I did email them today about their price of $129.99 online and will see what they say.

Well. They do honor price matches. Here's my reply to my email asking them to match the current price:
"I have reviewed your request, and since you made a purchase last 01/06/2011 the item you bought from Sony Style is eligible for price match, because we have a 30 days price assurance policy.
I will make a request for an approval to credit $50.00 on your credit card account. Please allow us 3 to 7 business days for the processing of your credit, and it will reflect on your account within 1 to 2 billing cycles."

Thanks. I have the new Best Buy ad and I will birng it in along with my sonystyle receipt and see what they say. Sounds like I will get a $20 price adjustment. The Best Buy ad is now including a free case with the purchase of any ereader so I will see if they will through in a free case too. That would be great!

Jen.
