I seriously doubt it.  Purchase of goods is a contract.  It may not
seem like one to the layman, but it is most basic to commercial law: 
you and the seller have agreed on the price and goods, and the
exchange of money for goods closes the contract. Retailers will often
allow goods to be returned and exchanged, or issue a voucher for later
purchase of other goods, but it very common that such an exchange
policy does not apply to goods on sale:  1) the retailer doesn't want
to see them again = discontinued stock;  2) to avoid the situation
suggested by the question, that someone could return goods, get a
voucher, and turn around and buy the same article at the lower price,
plus something else.
Even if the goods that you had bought were faulty, and the company
took them back and replaced them with identical faultless items, this
would be an adjustment under the original sales contract (and if the
retailer was still offering the goods at a now lower price, he would
have them).

Sorry,  Myoarin
