Check Those Receipts

I mailed off my car payment, car insurance payment, phone bill and put the leftover money from the weekend back in my credit union account. I did not stop at the bank yesterday to get my food shopping cash, I got busy doing some errands on my lunch break and just by-passed the bank.

One of the dogs has to be on a special diet and thus her food is a little more expensive than what I feed the other animals. I noticed the past few months that my local feed store put on sale that specific brand of dog food the last ten days of the month. I was getting low on her food, I had enough to last a few more days, but figured I'd take advantage of the sale NOW. I trucked over to pick up a bag, total savings on the bag of food was about $11. I chatted with the clerk and got back into my car. I took another look at the receipt. I was charged the full price for the food. I thought the total seemed high, but I had purchased a couple other small items and did not question it at check out. I trotted back into the store, pointed out the error and got a refund to my account. Her explanation, "Oh the computer recognizes this as the last day of the sale and that the food goes back to full price". Humm that makes no sense to me. If the sale goes through to June 30th, would the computers not automatically charge the full price on July 1 not on June 30th?

Moral of the story, check your receipts, check the sale flyer and question the difference if you need to!

Did they give you the difference then?

I once found a discrepancy in the amount I should have been charged for a whole bunch of cereal, and went back to the store. I didn't realize it but that meant I then got all that cereal free.

I've been a receipt-checking believer ever since...
