Which Stores Frequently Scan/Charge Wrong Price
« on: December 26, 2018, 12:57:21 PM »
Ill start this one:
Usually easier by grocery stores/supermarkets as shopping for numerous items and in a rush or with kids etc

Many years ago  one of the "cheap" grocery stores on 13th Ave (different owners) that was known to "scan" anything that was on the counter even if not yours. You would come home and realize that you got charged for stuff you never purchased, nor recieved.

There are quite a few that are known for it. Just curious to hear other experiences that people had.

I personally find Shop-rite to be the worst by far. On a large average weekly shopping trip, at least $30+ monthly in errors.

(and I always watch the screen by checkout)
Examples:
Soda 4-$12 Max 4 per flavor-  Cashier inputs all of the same flavor so don't get discount.
Grape Juice- $2.99  (doesn't say exclusions) Shelf has "tag" sale price by all flavors. Sure enough scans the low carb at 2 times the price of a regular non sale grape juice
Cereals: End of Aisle, large display, only for then to stock the entire display with the wrong OZ amount
Tags frequently have the wrong sale week prices on them.

The biggest problem is that discount doesn't credit until after rings up totals so can't tell if priced right.

Then Who is going to shlep back to the store with a few 12pk soda and wait on line in from of this not interested teenager for 30 min by customer service.

If you enter ShopRite plus at the beginning you see all the discounts as they're posted.

-1. Some discounts show right away and some don't. 
And when purchasing numerous, it sometimes fly by so quick you can't even see it (Especially if your bagging your own and by must purchase 4 etc.) When they hit subtotal, then the screen flies by all the discounts.

I find Costco to be very spot on. So far haven't found a mistake yet, but don't shop as often there.
