One day, I purchased toilet paper that was in the sale ad at Publix. When I checked out, the toilet paper was higher than I expected. I commented that it was on sale for $6.49. The cashier assured me it was not, so I purchased it anyway at $9.99.
I thought it over and decided I was correct, but somehow the ad was discarded when it expired. All the while I was ill last week, I planned my next move. I had Tommy check with his credit card company and see when a purchase was made for a little over $10. With that information in hand, Sunday, I asked at the service desk if someone could find the receipt. Within minutes I had a copy of the receipt.
Then, I told the CS person the problem and asked her to find the receipt ad, she did. She produced the ad, and, sure enough, It was on sale. She gave me back a $10 bill and almost a dollar in change. It seems if the price is wrong in Publix, the whole amount charged is refunded. I was not aware So, I was able to hand Tommy almost $11. He was so happy to have money in his wallet. He never has money unless I repay something I have borrowed...lol.
When he bought cereal for me, it was bogo. However, the two boxes were rung up on the receipt with no evidence of bogo. I had paid full price for each. When I pointed this out, I received a little over $10 back. Good deal!
Check your receipts! Between us we received over $21. Plus, I have a large pack of tp and two boxes of cereal I did not have to buy. $$$ and free merchandise are my kind of deals.
Usually, I challenge the price when I believe it is wrong. If not, I go back to the shelf and check the price again. Very seldom am I wrong about what price I thought I saw.
Right now, I have receipts sitting here to challenge at a big box store. There are a variety of problems with them, so it will take more than just returning items.
Often, in the case of the toilet paper, I am tardy with my return.
Do you check receipts at the time of purchase or at home? Are you willing to take things back or challenge a price you were charged? Are you really happy to receive your own money>
