RE: [IP] MiniMed Upsets Me Again

A lady on the Children with Diabetes list got credit...a copy of her
email with identifying information removed

" Just wanted to let anyone who updated their paridigm using this
program and paid the $450.00 fee to upgrade... they are now running a
"special" for $299.00 until the end of Dec.... I had paid the $450.00
and called today to complain... they offered a refund to my credit card
or to apply it to a balance that I have for supplies... customer service
was great about it, although I don't think it was right to run a special
to begin with, because if you didn't catch it and call you would not get

Maybe you all can put this into some kind of perspective for me.  Just
last month, I gathered all my spare diabetes supplies and sold them on
ebay to finance my upgrade from the 511 to the 512.  I paid $450.  Now
MM has announced that it has reduced the price to $299.  Most
electronics stores, like Best Buy and Circuit City, have policies where
if the item goes on sale within 30 days after purchase, they will refund
the difference.  I suspect most stores would do this as well.  The logic
being that within the 30 days, you could just return the item for a full
refund, then re-buy the item at the reduced price.  Is there any reason
I should expect MM to adhere to the same consumer standard?  Or not?  Is
this just another case where one has to cut one's losses and move on?
Your constructive input is appreciated.
