    They're not saying they made any savings.
    They're saying the prices dropped almost immediately after they'd made their respective purchases :idea:

    It does seem that their prices change somewhat randomly. There have been a few times where I checked a price in the early afternoon and by the time I checked again in the evening it had changed by a couple dollars.

    oops. i did a stupid thing and made an assumption. I assumed that because they knew right away about the price drop that it had been applied to them. I know of a few retail stores that will give you a price match thing for 30 days after you buy something, in case the price suddenly drops after you buy something.
