Earny

Apparently they monitor your inbox and Amazon accounts to claim refunds on price drops, and keep 25% commission.

I'm just afraid when it comes to a substantial price drop, the claim would be more likely denied due to "abuse" in the past, in addition to being worth your while and not pay 25% for it.

I use Sift. I think they don't take any commissions

Amazon doesn't refund on price drops anymore

I used to have Paribus but I noticed they missed a few big ones that I had to fill manually. I signed up for Earny two weeks ago and already got $100 in multiple checks and I have another $100 coming soon. Their algorithm is pretty good and they detect price drops very quickly! Perhaps @Dan wants to make a referral code and post about it?

Have you tried sift?
And what happened to the new policy of no price matching?

Wouldn't mind signing up but rather signup through a referral link, so waiting a day for dan or jj to create an account. :)

Talking about price matching, don't most cc or a couple out there offer money back for a price adjustment? 
 Only benefit here is for all the purchases you make and don't ever plan on tracking it to see if it went down in price. And saves you all the time spending having a rep. Compare the two and agree and reimburse you.
 Very cool site.
Interesting that I'm just stumbling upon it now.
 Surprised dan hasn't had a post on this, as if it's as simple as it says on the website, dan could be making a nice amount of cash from referrals, as I'm sure he does from all of his other referrals, amazon, cc, and lots more.. B"H.

yes but not amex, and we want return protection too. Plus, as you said, this is automated.

Doesn't Chase have return protection? I only use Chase for online purchases, earny fills in claims for price drops (not automated otherwise) and I have to do is upload my statement to the link they send. 20 claims in 2 weeks, they were wrong for like 2.

Cool trick: they'll keep on fillng claims even if you don't enter a card for the 25% payout. This might get fixed anytime though.

Yes but you have to pay to ship the item to Chase (unless something changed recently)

Thanks guys!

Any point in actually using this? Officially could have saved $30 or something from Amazon if I used an eligible card, though it's hard to beat Amex return protection and bonus points.

Never needed to use it so I wouldn't know. I don't mind paying a few bucks if I really needed it, although I can't think of a scenario where I would need to return something after 30 days or a final sale, and not being able to sell it on eBay for a profit :D
