Last semester I bought my textbooks at the college campus bookstore, and then filed a claim on the 75th day after purchase for the same books on amazon.com; I ended up saving $170 on two textbooks. I also got $75 when I bought my iPhone 5s on preorder from Apple through shop discover, and then filed a price protection because it was cheaper on Black Friday. I've never been denied, even when the online sale said "out of stock." There are some items they don't allow, but you can really save on electronics which can often go on sale during the 90 day period they give you from the purchase date.
Things can get lost in the mail. Can they email you a PDF of the form?

augiedog wrote:Yes: You need to call Discover, or the direct claims number (1-800-638-8312) during business hours (they usually pick up right away) with an advertised (online, or weekly fliers) lower price. They will send a form to submit (it's very simple: state where you got it, the price you bought it at, the advertised sale and what store). Include with it a copy of your receipt and advertisement, and then they send a check a little bit later! The price difference covers up to $500 per claim... Strangely enough the check they send you is from Bank of America.

You have to know that they are not going to make it easier for you to get money back from them. ... if all you had to do was fill out a form online and upload your proof then everyone would do it. They do not want that. Rather have the benefit to put on their list. They bank on the fact that most people will not use it.
