I haven't tried to return based on price change. I've always returned due to damage. Its free if there is something wrong.

I have had enough items come damaged it wouldn't surprise me if they flag me. I've heard of them doing that. Don't know if its true. But they are so inconsistent with their packing quality.  :speechless-smiley-004:

I think we should be able to argue that there was something wrong with the order .   The problem - I paid too much . 😀

I think I did that once and they waived the return shipment cost as long as I bought the new lower price one right away.  Can't remember.  Was a while ago.

I was chatting with another collector friend about this just last year i.e. why do some customers get banned by Amazon.  There was an online article that highlighted people who seemingly get kicked off Amazon and who claim that they don't know why, they didn't do anything wrong.

Personally I think that Amazon has an algorithm that analyzes how many times they have to pay for the shipping when you return a product back to them (referring to genuine returns due to damage or some problem with the product), and how often customer service has to do some kind of special refund because you call to complain, and if the algorithm decides that you're costing them more money than they are making from you, they'll just boot you off without any warning.   

They have hundreds of millions of customers, so kicking off a few hundred (or even thousand) unprofitable customers each year, probably doesn't hurt their overall sales, it likely saves them money.

You can try preordering from here:
https://www.djccollectibles.ca/collections/new-this-week/products/pre-order-4

I've ordered from them before and they tend to get their stuff a while after the big-box stores, but the service has been great.

It is just the placeholder page that is up right now.  They have not started accepting the pre-orders yet.

Wow, that didn't last long on EBGames then.  I ordered it about half an hour before bobafett108's post.

Yeah, I've been watching to see how low he goes.  I might pull the trigger if he drops to like $25.

Now if only the deluxe Boba Fett would do the same (ha! fat chance of that)

If collectors can hold off from buying Jar Jar, I think it might drop down as far as $35.  Although usually Amazon's algorithm seems to work in cycles.  The first time it starts discounting, it doesn't ever drop as far down as 30%, I think it usually stops at around 20% before it resets.

My guess is that the algorithm also has a time factor involved e.g. how long as Amazon had this item in stock?  If it's been 6 months to a year, then you'd likely see a 40 to 50% drop like we did with the freezing chamber.  Jar Jar is still fairly new so a 20% drop would take it to about $36.

Maybe by Sept-Oct if he hasn't sold out, then the second or third pass of the algorithm might get him down to $25 to $30.

Right now I wouldn’t touch anything coming out of the Brampton Fullfilment Center.  That building has been hit with a big Covid infection.  Nine bus drivers taking employees there each day have also been infected so they have stopped all buses on that route.
