Citi Price Rewind is a bit of a crapshoot. Some stuff gets big refunds, other stuff gets nothing. Some ordinary items won't be in the database, and some unusual ones will have multiple listings. Obscure things can get refunds, and ubiquitous ones may get no matches. When a receipt gives little detail, I photograph the receipt next to the item as a secondary file, and haven't had any refunds denied yet. It's easy to register something, but if you really want a refund, be prepared to do some of your own research if the database produces nothing in the first few days
. I just tend to photograph receipts and put stuff on there to see what I can get before I think about submitting a manual claim.
My best refund has been getting a laptop battery down from like $110 to $30. I bought it directly from the manufacturer's website, and Citi found some really obscure (and frankly, sketchy) clothing retailer that apparently had the battery listed for sale for $30.
I've not done any manual refund requests...yet. I might submit a manual refund request for some shoes, since Price Rewind has only managed to save me $0.05 and I can probably get $30.
One other warning: I don't think Price Rewind looks at Amazon prices. It looks at Zappos, which is owned by Amazon. It looks at Walmart, though, which is where some prices finally settle.
