Check your register tape

May 3, 2008 - Heather Ziegler
It happened again and I did not catch it until I got home. I was overcharged on a sale item at a store. In today's economy 79 cents is more than I want to be overcharged especially on a store-advertised special. Now I have to decide if it's worth the gas to drive back to this particular store outside of my usual driving pattern to get my 79 cents back. Something tells me I should just suck it up as my own fault because I didn't pay attention sooner. But at this particular store, you don't see what the prices are as they are being entered into the cash register computer. I have to admit there are stores that go above and beyond in correcting an error. Kroger, for instance, gives you the item free if they charge you the wrong price. I once felt sorry for them when I was charged $3.69 for a loaf of bread when it cost $2. They not only gave me all my money back but the bread was free. I was willing to pay but they didn't bat an eye at the refund. My grilled cheese sandwich tasted better than ever on that bread. Thank you very much. In today's economy, it pays to pay attention.
