The terms for Discover's Price Protection include this line:
12. Computer components including but not limited to external and internal hard drives, CPUs, power supplies, batteries, DVDs, video cassettes, CDs, audio cassettes, printed materials, or any other informational and recreational media

In your opinion, are books excluded under this? What about textbooks? Audio CDs? AA batteries used to power something other than a computer?

I filed a price protection claim for a textbook and the benefit administrator denied it citing that term. I argued that the cited exclusion was only for computer parts, they refused to budge saying Discover set the terms and interpretations and it was out of their hands. I called Discover and the customer service rep agreed with me and credited my account for the amount of the claim.

  Book might fall under "printed materials".
Not saying it is, in the current context of "computer component". But that is probably how the person denying the claim interpreted it.

They more or less exclude anything that depreciates quickly.

You got a bad seed. It is pretty clear to me that they mean "Anything that is shipped with a computer (a component) or used by it (media)".

A textbook wouldn't fall under that.

I talked to two different reps and a supervisor twice (same guy both times), he said they had very detailed guidelines about what was excluded.
