vereinbarter Preis

"grandfathered" / "grandfather clause":
a clause in some legislation forbidding a certain activity, which exempts those already engaged in it before the legislation was passed.
Here: a price was agreed upon before the price was change (too bad for the other poor suckers :-))

refurb = refurbished, (to polish up, to brighten) here: meaning the price was changed after their agreement
