Amazon will absolutely refund you the price if it drops lower than when you bought it. It has to be within 7 days(used to be 30). So unless this wasn't the case then you should have zero problems in getting a partial refund. I've done it multiple times over the years. On pre-orders. I've never placed a pre-order unless I know for a fact that it is going to limited edition like Twilight Time for example. Prices come down all the time, and sales are held consistently between various online retailers. My rule is if I waited for years for a title to come to DVD/Blu then I can wait a few more weeks or months even. You know how many times I cleaned up on Kino sales at DDD? Gotta have patience. A tip, which I've said over and over and over again in this thread. NEVER ask for a refund using email or chat. Always talk to a live person. I never heard the word NO from a Amazon Customer Service rep. Maybe it's just my charm, but I've yet run into a rep that couldn't handle my problem.
