Then this morning I went for my Monday morning errand/deal run. I went to Walgreens (where you can get have FREE Soft Scrub ), plus they had Soft Scrub's new product, Soft Scrub Total (which I really like) as a BOGO, and when I saw that I ran back to the car and grabbed a couple coupons I had, in the end I paid $1/ea for the Soft Scrub Total (I bought two). Then I stopped back at CVS where I saved $29 and only spent just under $4 for some items I didn't get the night before. Then I ran to Winn Dixie for a couple of items. Then I stopped at Publix. Where they are having FABULOUS deals on dog treats and food right now.
When I checked out at Publix and the lady total me my Out Of Pocket (OOP) I kinda thought it was a bit higher than I expected, but I paid, and went to the car. I pulled out my receipt & calculator, tallied it all up, and realized that the treats I bought (I bought 4 of them) they rang up as $4.99/bag, instead of the sale price of $3.50/bag. Publix's policy is that if the items don't ring up correctly they will give you one of those items for free. I overcame my fear, went back, showed them my receipt and the ad. And I was given $10.08 back. I actually ended up making money on this trip to Publix, I made just over $7. Yeah I was pretty happy about that.
So, the moral to these two stories is that you need to be sure to CHECK all your receipts and check for any errors. If there are errors, ASK, don't worry or FEAR that you'll be "that person", because it's alright. If I hadn't gone back I would have lost $20! That's a big deal.
