I just called apple and they said don't worry be happy! Hah
He told me to upgrade to another model so I wouldn't have to wait.
He would even upgrade me to 2 day shipping.
He then went on the web site and found another mini refurb for $100 more,
that was available. He then read me the specs.
I told him that was the same mini as I bought for $100 less.
He said that it has the same specs but a different model number.
I think it was a boxing week price that they now don't want to honour and are hoping I'll just cancel.
He also said that apple would pay the return shipping for the items already shipped.
