    Can you request discount retrospectively? 5th Jan 18 at 9:59 AM
    Hello,

    I bought two pairs of shoes in the Adidas sale online yesterday. The items haven't even been dispatched yet.

    Since then, they've knocked another 20% off the price. Now I know I can send them back for free returns within 100 days, but am I able to request they simply apply the discount retrospectively?

    Do companies do this?

    You can ask and they may give the discount they may not.


    Politeness is the key here - I got a discount from Argos once because I was cheeky enough to ask but was polite about it.

    Why not order at the reduced price and cancel the original order as it hasn't dispatched yet. Probably easier than trying to deal with customer service.
