QVC refunding $110 plus price match to TouchPad purchasers

We might mock QVC for being, well, QVC, but there’s something to be said for customer service. While most retailers offer price match and price drop policies, they require customer intervention to make it happen. QVC, on the other hand, doesn’t want to deal with you calling them to get your price drop refund. Instead, they’re just giving it to you automatically, and QVC cut the price by another $10 over HP’s price cut. So if you purchased an HP TouchPad from QVC before the recent $100 price drop, you should be looking at your inbox for news of a $110 refund. Needless to say, we’re going to be dialing back our QVC mockery. A copy of the discount letter is after the break.
