I was at Wal-Mart the other day. I purchased 9 items, 5 of the 9 rang up for more than the actual price! 3 of the items had a sign listing them at 90% off, they were marked $8.00 but rang up for $2.00. The cashier gave me the overcharged amount. I also had 2 […]

Hi Annette, I feel like a victim of this scanning law problem as well. I went to Rite-Aid to buy a few items and try to find a cheaper brand of face powder than what I normally buy from the very high-end stores (my husband has been laid off since October and I cannot in […]

I have an ongoing problem with Meijers pricing problems! Seems like the problems are getting worse, but enforcement is non-existent. Just last week I purchased gourmet coffee for $6.99 a pound, listed as buy one, get one free. When the cashier scanned the item, the charge was $7.99 a pound. I caught the mistake and […]

I recently decided to go through a couple of my receipts before I threw them away. I know I waited a long time, but I will for now on check them before I leave the store. I went to the¬†Rayville, Louisiana Wal-mart, the day before Christmas and bought a large variety of items; Christmas presents, […]

Does the scanner law go far enough? I am diligent about checking my receipts and I have to tell you, it’s the rare occasion that I shop at a major grocery or department store and not find a mistake on my receipt. To be honest, sometimes the mistakes are in my favor, but not nearly […]

My disagreement is with Meijers in Michigan. On November 18 while shopping for vitamins I decided to purchase the much higher priced ones then I would have because the sign in front of them and other vitamins clearly said buy one get the second free. With the name of the vitamins clearly stated on the […]

Browsing the new Meijer ad in the Sunday paper, I noticed Scott Toilet Tissue and another brand our household likes were both on sale for “¬Ĺ price.” That’s a great buy! So Sunday afternoon, I make a trip there especially for that, but picking up a few other things I needed at the same time. […]

I was shopping for linens at the Target store on Haskell Avenue, Dallas, Texas. I chose several items that were shelved directly behind a huge red “clearance” sign. Having been overcharged on sale items at this store before, I asked the checker to make sure the items scanned at the discounted price. They did not. […]

On a recent visit to Meijer I purchased a bag of potato chips, the price was not marked on the bag of chips, but on the shelving unit below. The price marked on the sticker was $2.50. However, when I checked out, the chips rang up at $2.99. I am in the habit of checking […]

Annette: I have been impressed reading info on your site but am also confused about the MI Bounty Scanning Law. I live in MI and recently stocked up on kid’s clothes that were on clearance at Kohl’s. The pants were marked $16.00 as the original price and had a $6.00 clearance sticker on them. A […]

I stopped shopping at Meijer for a long time because of the scams they run. I recently went back to shop at Meijer thinking I would pay better attention to the sale signs and find a price scanner, which are mounted though out the store, so I could check any unpriced item. Well, all of […]

This weekend I was overcharged at two different Meijers at two separate times. On Thursday, I went to a Meijers in Grand Rapids, MI. I bought some Margarita mix. The price tag was marked $15.88. When I got home, I checked the receipt and the item had rung up for $17.95. I called the store […]

Several times a year, after buying many items at Wal-Mart (and being distracted by my young child) I have found small items on the receipt that I did not purchase. Items such as; a 20 ounce ice tea for $0.98 (this has happened twice). I have also found that I have been overcharged for items. […]

I have been reading your site as I reside in Grand Rapids Michigan and had a problem at 4 a.m. in the Grandville Meijer. I purchased a set of pajamas which were advertised in their ad and on a sign at 40% off. I noticed as soon as I got my receipt that I was […]
