I paid $1000 Canadian for my Yamaha RX-V1300 receiver just under a month ago. Just the other day I was looking at the paper and there was a sale advertising the RX-V2300 for $777. I phoned up the store I bought my receiver from and asked if the price for the V1300 had changed. It had, it was now 700 dollars! Since It was less than a month ago that I bought the receiver, I was entitled to get a refund of the difference! So, I went in and they gave me 265 dollars back! Now, after tax the RX-V1300 cost me 750 Canadian. Not bad! And the real beautiful thing? The way it works with the store's system is that when I got my refund, they basically told the computer I returned the receiver and re-bought it for the lesser price. That means I get a whole new receipt for the new price, and ANOTHER 30 days in which I can return the receiver or get another refund! What's nice about that is if new models (such as the RX-V1400) come out within a month, I could thearetically return this current receiver and buy a new one - no questions asked! I don't think I would (I would feel too guilty) but it's nice to have options! And at the very least, I can hope that the price of the RX-V1300 drops again within a month. Jonny K.
