Reminder-Check Those Receipts
A friendly reminder-check those receipts. I used to be an obsessive checker. I always checked my receipt before I left the store parking lot. But then at the market, I started to worry about all that frozen stuff in my trunk, and I stopped being so vigilant. Well, today when I got home, I checked my receipt and found 3 items were wrong, for a total of $2.33. If there is a $2 error every week, that's enough for 2 massages or three pedicures per year!
I've learned to always check as well. And some store's (our grocery store) will refund you the total price if it it ring's up wrong. "A penny saved is a penny earned"...i live by that motto especially in these time's.
Related to this topic, if it's a clothing store that's close by, check the receipt to see if they have a 14 day price guarantee. Many do. That means if the price of the item you bought went down w/in the 14 days after you made your purchase, just bring in the receipt (not necess. to bring the item) and they will refund you the difference. That can add up! Esp. important if you paid full price for something....
