    Alright,
    I always notice that they change their price PRETTY DARN OFTEN, but this is just crazy. I want to get a 3DS soon, and I actually browse amazon.co.uk pretty often. They have a policy I think, if the price goes down within a certain period of time then you can reclaim money(or something like that I think). BUT they have been changing the 3DS price like everyday! Cosmos Black was £174.99 yesterday, and it was £189.99 the day before. Today Cosmos Black is £164.99.
    I havent noticed the price of the Aqua Blue one, but it kept changing too o.o
    local retailer price is £220+.

    Maybe it depends on how many get sold a day?

    I am not sure if I dreamt about it, but their pricing policy changed o.O?

    It states the final price is not when you add the item to your basket but when you place the other. Literally meaning the price goes up and down.

    I was browsing a minute ago, Cosmos Black was 164.99 and now its 159 o.O.

    Super Monkey Ball went from from 17.99 to 14.99 lol.

    Amazon prices have always been interesting- see that thing a few years back where prices would be different logged out to logged in.

    yeah i have noticed that, i have a wishlist of stuff i want to buy and i am always checking the prices they change every day, so just make the most of it when the item you want to buy is at a good price just go for it.

    Yes, but just when you see the price is very low and order it, the next day its even LOWER lol.
    But at least they sell it cheaper than highstreet markets [​IMG].

    I lost about 30 pounds just on my 3DS.
    The two games I bought were each at £29 and 3DS was £164.99.

    Now black 3DS is 159.99 and the games are 19.99.
    Oh well, like I said, still cheaper than anywhere else [​IMG].
