Here where I live, there is something called price adjustment.
Basically if I purchased something for $50 and 6 days later the item is $40, I take the receipt to a store, and I get $10 plus tax back.
The grace period for price adjustment varies.
Plus, if the item has not been used, and has all tags, even after the grace period, as long as I'm entitled to return it for a full refund, I can ask for a price to be adjusted.
I'm not sure what's your problem. If the item has not shipped yet, you'll do a favor to the seller by canceling, instead of returning it.
You feel obliged towards the seller?
With full respect, I usually feel ripped off, so no mercy. Their profits are based on huge margins which are usually unthinkable to an average buyer.
As long as you could survive the political life, I would always vote for guys like you. :)
