Can I legitimately ask why this is being voted hot?

Mental price! Have some heat....

This is a joke post right? COLD.

What on earth is that?



It's a meaningless graph, because Amazon themselves are out of stock. The 3rd party seller (who is selling for the same price) has a graph that looks like this.

Which I think you will agree is a much more impressive graph.;)

But still COLD!:p

You mean to tell me that is not the New York sky line?
Sir you are an artist.

Cold, I'm afraid. Got it for £239 on Aria with postage. Same on Dabs.

If you want them to lower the price, go to the exact product (not the one showing the 3rd party seller):

amazon.co.uk/gp/…OLE

Under the Product Information there is a feedback header, click on the link "tell us about a lower price?"

And submit the dabs and ebuyer prices.

I recently ordered a cheap AMD cpu for my htpc, it died after a days use, Amazon were excellent in replacing it, too many bad stories about ebuyer, scan, ocuk, dabs etc.... I am waiting for Amazon to lower the price so that I can order this for my main PC.

this is very exspensive, super cold.

Is this the exact same one as this aria.co.uk/Sup…ker


at £227.94? I mean sure theirs psotage costage but i doubt its £30.

What do you do, just email Customer Services? Often wondered about this.

Yes how do you do this with Amazon. Seen people mention getting Amazon to Price Match, but noone has said how to do it..

Chat with live support and give them the three links to the cheaper prices. If many people do so then it gives a better chance for Amazon to notice and make price changes.

Live support have always said that they will note the competitor price but that doesn't mean that there will be a price match.

True, but from some items I've seen previously, they "silently" price match other retailers.

An example of price matching policy is John Lewis, where if you meet their criteria, they will match the competitor's price.

The point of my post is to say they do not have price matching criteria or a policy so you cannot say with that it will be price matched. For all we know, the people monitoring market pricing have done their job in the instances you've come across and seen your live support message after the event.

An example of this non-existant price matching policy is that it's still the same price 1 day and 8 hours (at the time of posting this message) after yo've posted and probably requested a lower price via live support.

Sorry but this deal is cold primarily due the higher price compared to elsewhere but also for the reasons I've stated.

£250.44 now and I am fully aware that Amazon do not price match. I am also aware of how John Lewis' price match policy operates.

Furthermore, see my other deal here: hotukdeals.com/dea…088

Amazon "silently priced matched" OCUK, "silently" as in as you stated "the people monitoring market pricing have done their job" and made pricing adjustments. As far as I know, Amazon.co.uk and OCUK were the only two online retailers at the time who offered this particular SSD at £129.98.

OCUK dropped the price to £129.98 on 24th June forums.overclockers.co.uk/sho…476 and Amazon reduced the price on 15th July. So it seems Amazon do adjust prices eventually is the point I am trying to make with "silent price matching".

Don't get me wrong, I spend a vast amount with Amazon each year and they frequently appear on my monthly top spend list with Amex so I like shopping with them.

What I've found in the past is that Amazon have both overtly and silently failed to price match when I've raised it with live support. Live support have also said that Amazon do no have a price match policy.

And that's why I've suggested the deal is cold - there's no direct way to achieve the lower price. My suggestion is to expire it and re-post if they either match or better the price available elsewhere.

Deals on this site follow the "wisdom of crowd" process and whilst this is not without flaws or exceptions, this has voted it cold also.
