Edit: Refund for the price difference is offered only at Amazon.com. I am not sure about Amazon.in. In case you experience the following situation, Just give your luck a try!
Most of you might not be aware of this
If you have purchased an Item at Amazon just before it goes on a deal, you will Certainly fell sick for that. Wait!

Skip The Delivery Charges For Order Less than Rs 500
Amazon India Offers Thousands of Daily need Items and accessories like memory cards, pen drives, Soaps, Baby Diapers with great discount.
But, the only problem is, you have to Pay Rs 40 if the total order value is less than Rs 499.

You can add items like, Garnier skin naturals which are worth Rs 20 only.
You can also skip the Delivery charges by adding a Pre-order item like an unreleased book or video game.
Amazon India does not charge you for the Pre-ordered items till they ship, So it will be your choice whether to purchase the pre-ordered item or cancel the order. Amazon might terminate your account if you do this in a fraudulent manner.
Ask for a Refund or Replacement For a Defective Item Without Having to Ship it back
In case, you have got a damaged item which was shipped by Amazon (Amazon Fulfilled products), you will usually get a replacement order with an enhanced shipping order.
If the broken item were sold by a third party seller, you would get a refund for the full value of the order.
Let me tell you my personal experience which I had dealt with this kind of situation.
I have ordered a Philips QT4005/15 Beard and Stubble Trimmer at Amazon.in and I am out of the town on the next day, and my mobile was not in the coverage area.
I taught that the item would be delivered after a couple of days, but on the next day of the order, I received the ‘Item Delivered Successfully’ message.
I taught that my parents had taken the order and to my surprise, they told me that they hadn’t received any parcel.
I had contacted Amazon customer service about this issue, and they have asked me to wait for a couple of Days.
After 2 Days, I again contacted them and said that I hadn’t received the order.
Straight away, they issued a refund.
On the Next Day, I contacted the Local postman and found that the item was delivered to another person on the next street with the same name.
I told the Post Man about the item, and he contacted the other person and got the package back.
I Finally received my Amazon Order.
Due to a little confusion by Local Postal Service the item was wrongly delivered.
I emailed Amazon about this, and they told me to keep the item along with refund 😉
