Check Your Receipts Before Leaving The Store.

This Sparked Me!

Yesterday at Walmart I checked my receipt and thought I was overcharged for my haircoloring - so I left the buggy with DH and checked the shelf. Well, the price had gone up - but not on my color! They gave me back $8.56 - well worth the bother.

Sometimes I write the price on the items (I always carry a pen) and then it is easy to check as items are being scanned.
My GF takes a picture with her cellphone to prove the prices at the register.
Whatever works, money in your pocket!

    I have learned to always seriously consider listening to KISSFAN1 she's got very good money handling skills and is amazing at finding bargains. I will start checking over my receipts a lot more carefully before leaving a store.

    I check my receipts constantly, including bills you get at a restaurant. You'd be surprised at how often something is incorrect.
