You can return it and rebuy it.
Go to the Manage Your Kindle page and return it for a refund.

Everything goes on sale after someone pays full price. You can either only shop sales (although unless something is free there can always be a better sale sometime in the future) or take your chances that after you buy something it will later be offered at a lower price. My advice...don't pay more than you think something is worth. That way you can never get "ripped off".

No, you shouldn't. Would you volunteer to pay the higher price if the price increased?

That being said, since you bought it less than 7 days ago, you can return it and buy it again.

Was $4.99 not a fair price for the book? If it was not a fair price why did you pay it? If it was a fair price what is your complaint?

Is there any store that alerts you to the price dropping after you bought something?

Is Bookbub a store?

I meant does Best Buy call you up and say "We just reduced the price on that TV you bought last week and want you to get your money back."

I get email alert on the type of Books I like to read on sale or free even.

But Bookbub is not the store selling the books.

Amazon gives you 7 days to return an eBook. And you think Amazon should do even more for you? Wow!

And if she makes a habit of returning books, they'll take that privilege away.

Again, why? You obviously thought it was a fair price when you bought it. Would you volunteer to pay the higher price if the price increased?

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 12, 2013 10:59:20 AM PST
Yep. =)

Simple, don't buy books unless they are on sale. You obviously thought the $4.99 was worth the price. Most things go on sale from time to time.

I keep a rather lengthy Wish List of ebooks I consider to be priced higher than I want to pay for them, and await their price falling to a level I feel comfortable paying. I'd never complain about the price of anything falling after I bought it though, or expect a seller to refund me the difference if a purchase price changed after the fact. Just when you think the self-entitlement society can't get any worse.....(and, yes, I know some retailers have a price protection program that will do this for a certain time after purchase, but that's their choice, not your god-given right).

That is my point. If the books are "really good" then apparently $4.99 was a fair price. If the price had never gone down would you have been unhappy that you bought the book? If so you are leading a sad life. Why buy something that will make you unhappy?

I only return unopened if bought weeks earlier and there's a drastic price drop in that span. This happens with TVs a lot of times. Three weeks later you'll see your item reduced $50 or more. In such a case, common sense says return and rebuy. With software, there's no such luck- I bought Webroot Secure Anywhere for $29.99, and a week later I saw it for $9.99 on some special. Nothing you can do.

Book prices change all the time. I've never felt the need to return a book because of a price drop. But then again, i usually only buy during price drops. I do remember one particular book that I bought when it was $0.01, and the next day, it went free. That said, the book was really good, and I feel like I got my money's worth on it.
