October 23, 2009, Newsletter Issue #98: Check Your Receipts

Tip of the Week

Don't count on a supermarket scanner to give you all of the grocery discounts you're entitled to. Some sales never make it into a grocery store's computer, causing you to be charged regular price for sale items. Furthermore, some grocery stores add up your total discount at the end of the purchase, making it difficult to monitor scanned prices during checkout. To make sure you're getting the grocery deals you came in for, pay attention to the price of items you put in your cart and check your receipt. If you are overcharged for an item (or several), complain to management. Some stores will give you the item for free or refund double your money if you uncover their computer errors.
