Found 21st Nov 2007
I purchased 4 X Creative Labs EP-630/A Earphones
for the family for £9.99 last week that deal is now reduced to £7.99, This week I emailed Amazon for the price reduction to be applied, simple yeah 4 x £2 difference total £8 right, no this is Amazons workings,

Please note that, you have been charged 8.5 GBP for each item and
totally you have been charged 34 GBP for 4 copies. For your
information, I am listing the cost details below :

Subtotal: 34.00
Shipping: 0.00
VAT: 5.96
Total: 39.96

less than thirty days have passed between the date on which an order
was dispatched and the time that an item is reduced in price on our

I have therefore requested a refund of 2.04 GBP to your payment
card. This amount reflects the difference between the price you were
charged and the current discounted price. The refund should appear
as a credit on your next bank statement.:x

I can see that they have subtracted the vat on what I paid and left the vat on the £7.99 ones to leave the difference. I've not had trouble on a previous item when the price was reduced and had the price drop correctly, Has anyone else come across this ?
