Help - just paid £349 for a pine chest of drawers and seen it online for £260

I've just paid £349 for a chest of drawers on my credit card and seen exactly the same one online for £260.

Am I right in thinking that the shop has no obligation to offer me a refund? The drawers are due to be delivered on Tuesday

I would give it a good go that is a huge difference!Which shop is it?

It's a local posh pine shop

You can ask. Or try to cancel/return the order.

Ring them and be honest they may price match for you.It is a massive difference and a bit cheeky.Otherwise cancel the order

Some shops will refund the difference - others won't. However, some credit cards sometimes give you a refund in your circumstances (I had that with my platinum barclaycard, as long as it was not a special sale or something).

But what is the shop's policy for returning items?

Don't distance selling regulations state that you can cancel at any time up to 10 days after delivery of the goods?

Oops, might have misunderstood, did you buy them in a 'normal' shop and ask for them to be delivered?

thank you for your suggestions - I phoned the shop, referred them to the website, they said they will check that it is exactly the same as "it may be a cheap imitation" and get back to me.

Which is a result of sorts
