Amazon.com -- Deal or No Deal?!?



Buying items on Amazon.com is like playing the game show Deal or No Deal. Amazon.com is the banker who makes you an offer (the current price of the item you want) and you say either Deal or No Deal. You have no idea if that item is going to drop in price or go up. There is no rhyme or reason to it.

Case in point: I bought this Vtech - V.Motion Active Learning System on Sunday for $39. I thought I was getting the best price. Today it's $29! And the Scooby Doo is now $14.xx and I paid $18 for it. That's a $14 difference. $14 would of bought a 3rd game!

I made a not so great deal.

I had the same thing happen to me the other day. I bought my son a gift on lightning deal and 5 days later it went on lightning deal again for $10 cheaper. I called Amazon during the sale time and they refunded me $10! She said they usually don't do it for the lightning deals but they made an exception for me. I was able to purchase the leapfrog word builder ( on lightning deal at 9.99)for free using my refund. :)
