I try to remind you of this tip every so often, and my trip to Kroger yesterday is a good reason why. Fighting allergies the evening before and morning of my trip, I was a little more groggy than normal. When I checked out and my total was $27 and change, I thought it was high, but I couldn’t figure out what had happened. As I always try to do, I stopped out of the way and checked my receipt before leaving the store. I realized that two errors had been made. The first was that a coupon had become stuck in the depths of my pocket, and I failed to give it to the clerk. Since it was an $8/2 Cover Girl coupon, that amount took a serious dent off of my total. Also one of the three bags of candy I had bought for Halloween had a different price than I had thought--$3.59 instead of $2.50. I asked the front desk manager to see if I had made an error or if it were marked incorrectly. He went to the seasonal aisle with me, and I was pleased to learn that the error was theirs. This meant that I received the candy for free due to their scan right promise! The cost of not checking my receipt and discovering those errors would have been $11.59. Always double check!
