It adds the difference between normal price and the deal price as a "promotional or gift card balance". You see the full price through the whole check-out process but then it applies the "promotional/gift card" balance when finalizing.
It'll show regular price on the actual invoice too, and shows the lightning discount towards the bottom with the total. If the discount isn't there, give Amazon a ring. They've always been very helpful for me. :)
The same thing happened to me, only I caught it before I finalized the purchase. I just went back to the Amazon homepage and went through the checkout process again and the lightning deal price stayed the second time around.
Amazon is a transparent company and will show the regular price and the discount and yes you must meet the cut off time to get the discount, so ont't blame Amazon they will almost always make it right!
there, fixed for ya Ralph E. Amazon service is fantastic. It's also among the worst. Nearly just as many times as I've had great service I've had awful service. It's just a matter of getting through to a Rep who actually a crap. More often than not, in a situation or problem such as this they have always been great. Unfortunately not 100% of their staff is great. So they don't always make it right but usually they will...
Well, I will first say It's what you put into it is what you will get out of it. I would like to say you are entitled to believe your situation to be 50/50 good and bad. One thing I will say you are the customer and will remain right as long as you are transparent about the situation, computers are date stamped on transactions and some people get all upset if they miss the deal and then they turn against the company they are purchasing the deal from. I have had a 99.999% good experience with Amazon and will say they do the very best considering the volumn they deal with on a daily work load. 19. 5 million customers a day use there business and I feel your entiled to not be perfect, but this company by far is closer to perfect than any walmart, target,jcpenny....... I have been in. They have customer service in the right frame of mind.
