Me:HP is supposed to be crediting all TouchPad owners the difference of the original purchase price to their current "firesale" prices. (see BREAKING: HP Crediting Fire-Sale Difference to Current TouchPad Owners | Featured, News |webOSroundup
) When will this credit be applied for my TouchPad purchased via Amazon?
Ade:Hello, my name is Ade. I'll be happy to assist you.
I understand you want to know when you will be credited the price difference on the HP Touchpad. Please bear with me for a few moments while I pull up your information.
Thank you for waiting. I see this order was placed back on June 19, 2011. In this case what we can do is have you return the item for a refund, but we would not be able to match the price seeing as with the exception of TVs, Amazon doesn't offer a price match guarantee. We do spend considerable effort to ensure our prices are the lowest in the marketplace at any time. Because the marketplace is constantly changing and we strive to offer the lowest price, you'll see some fluctuations in our prices over time.
id you read the link? The retailers are supposed to refund the difference (in this case 599 to 149). I like my TouchPad and don't want to return it. It is out of stock everywhere that I've checked.
Ade:I understand your concern however Amazon.com does not comment about rumors or speculative news reports. However, I can assure you that we have not announced any dealings with HP. I'm sorry I can't provide any additional information.
Me:It is not a rumor. I've called HP and they said to contact the retailer - Amazon!
Ade:Like it is stated on the link, not all retailers have been confirmed to honor this price difference. Amazon is not one of the included retailers. We are not offering this price match.
