Did I get scammed?

So I recently bought a service package from my dealership for 3 services for $1300 on my 2015 C300 4matic Sport. I have a service at 30,000 miles coming up, which will be the first one. I was told $1300 was a good deal because depending on my vehicle condition, Service A can cost $200-$400 and Service B can cost anywhere from $500-$950. People are telling me their services usually just cost $200 and $500. Did I get scammed? Has anyone had services in the upper end of those ranges? Should I see if I can just pay for Service A and if they'll let me use my maintenance package starting with Service B in 10,000 miles?

I'm going for the A Service tomorrow and the dealer quoted me $380.00. One year old and over 10,000 miles already and it is my second car, not my everyday driver.

Dang, $380 is at the high end. Thanks for replying, it's a bit of relief that Service A CAN cost over $200 lol

From what I've read on forums this varies based on the dealer competition in the area. Here in Atlanta there's about 6 Mercedes dealerships within a 30-40 mile radius. You can get a dealer Service A for around $120 and a typical Service B for around $400.

My dealer is the closest one (100 miles away). Not much competition here.

Service A is nothing but a simple oil + filter change. You can go to any oil change shop and get it done for much less. Just make sure they use the Mobil 1 synthetic or equivalent MB approved oil. I usually the the oil filter from AutoHausaz and the oil from Walmart and go to a local Indy and get the service done in front of me for $20.
