I recently purchased this Arden B. Silk Trapeze Dress for $64 (originally $130) to wear to a friend's upcoming nuptials. Two days later, I revisited the site and found it had gone on sale for $30. What?!
First I was thrilled, but then I was mad I had paid the higher price. I pondered whether or not I should call customer service for a price adjustment. Despite my initial hesitancy, I sucked it up, dialed, and waited a good eight minutes to get an operator on the line. I calmly explained my situation and firmly ended with, "I'm calling to get a price adjustment." Without giving me trouble, Arden B. rewarded me my difference of $34.
Notice I didn't ask for a price adjustment; I told. I'm slightly changing the saying "ask and you shall receive" to "demand nicely and you shall receive." Moral of the story? The next time something you bought goes on sale so quickly after, don't shy away; instead, demand nicely and you'll get your deserved deal.
