Just a reminder
That if you can, keep your eyes on the register screen as your groceries are being rang up. I know this can be hard with impatient munchkins, but if you can, you will probably catch several mistakes! This has happened to us twice this week, once at Fred Meyer's, where a frozen pizza rang up at $4.50 instead of the sale price of $3. Yesterday it happened again, this time at Safeway. The tub of organic greens rang up at $4.99 when the sale tag on the shelf said $3.99. $1 is a pretty big difference so I spoke up. Turns out yes it was on sale for $3.99, and Safeway has a policy where if it rings up incorrectly, the first incorrectly scanned item is free! So we walked out of there with free salad. Not bad for just paying attention as our items were scanned.
