Always double check your receipt

WP_000171 WP_000170
I was at one of the large supermarkets in Beirut a while ago when I noticed they had an offer on one of KDD’s juice products, buy 6 for the price of 4. So I grabbed a pack and headed to one of the cashiers only to be surprised that they’re billing me 4,500L.L instead of the advertised 2,490L.L.

I decided to ask the customer service attendant for an explanation and it turned out the pack I picked didn’t have a promotional sticker on it, and they suggested that I just go get another pack with a sticker on, which was pretty stupid in my opinion since all the packs were placed on the same shelf!

Anyway, I’m not posting this to target a specific supermarket but rather to point out that you notice a difference between the shelf price and what you get billed almost everywhere and I’ve experienced it more than once, so you better double check your receipt next time you shop at one of those big supermarkets!

    I can’t tell you how many times this has happened to me, and it’s always such a hassle. The worst part is when management declines to give you the advertised price because the barcode rings differently. Can’t they override it? Idiots.
