I don't keep supermarket receipts. I don't take that careful a note of repeat buy pricing. I did notice the price on the bag of coffee beans I bought the other day was £1.49 and thought I'm sure they were £1.29.

I remembered the Lidl app stores your bills.
7 Jan I got some £1.29
18 Jan £1.49 over 15% more

Still we get our 3% pension rise in a couple of months. We cleary didn't need the 8% we were promised under the triple lock.

It's good to moan.

I don't trust supermarkets one bit, and think you would be wise to keep and check your receipts.  Yesterday Morrison's "done me" for £2.10, the four pasties I bought were marked up as special offer at £1.25, the till charged me £1.80.  I got my money back when I queried it.  This sort of thing has happened on numerous occassions, they are getting away with a lot of money from people who  don't check their receipts.

I just pay up and leave the store.. Me and a few thousand others..
I never think to check my bill.. I do notice that I seem to be paying more than usual..
Don't ask me.. I know nuffink..

I used to check my receipts but can't be bothered now as they whizz you through the check out so quickly.   I do have a look when I get home though.  Over the years I found Iceland to be the worst offender.

.. and the bloody people standing behind  in the queue would 'Sigh' loudly if you was to query a bill.. Everyone is in a hurry..
Don't ask me.. I know nuffink..

we had Fish an Chips yesterday, or at least i did, my mate had Scampi he only got six pieces, where he usually gets ten, "thats a 25% increase" he suggested "its actuall 40%" i told him ... still they think they are clever, Fn idiots we will never order from them again....

I whizz through the Asda receipt while Paul is unpacking the trolley and getting rid of it.  I was overcharged by £4.75 a few days ago so took the offending shopping back in and got a refund.


Another time a crusty baguette was labelled as two baguettes and the price doubled.  I went back in and the assistant reckoned someone had a hangover!  It it's pointed out to the staff, it saves other people being overcharged.

but if you try leaving the store without paying its a crime... why isnt it criminal when they do it?

Scrumpy




My mate left a clothes store with an item still on the hanger attached to her bag.. !!
The alarm never sounded and she was unaware of the mistake..
Don't ask me.. I know nuffink..

My wife keeps and checks all receipts where they come from and at times she has found a few  discrepancies where  items was swiped twice through the checkout. of course we got our money back , how ever it isn't every time but it does pay to check .........................just in case,

I always check my till receipt before I leave the store.  :upvote: I find mistakes too often and it's easier to check before going home and then having to return along with all the messages.  :angry:

My husband was stopped by security taking the trolly of shopping out of Asda.  I had gone to the loo and I had the receipt in my bag, he waited ages with people looking at him as if he was a shoplifter until I came out.  We were not best pleased, what if we had no receipt , many people don't bother with them. They said it was routine, but I don't think you should be stopped like that without good reason, really upset us and I avoid Asda these days.  I get a receipt for everything however small.

My ADSA self sevice checkouts give you the choice of no receipt. In fact they don't print one unless you press yes within 10 seconds. I always take one to avoid any problem. As I always pay by card the transaction would be recorded so I'd have no legal issue but there could be inconvenience.

It's good to moan.

I thought that store security staff had to have a reason for checking a customer's shopping, not have random checks.

Were you given a reason?

No we were not, only that they made random checks, I don't think they are actually allowed to do that without good reason we complained to the manager  as it was quite busy and everyone was looking at us as if we were shoplifters. he just backed up his security men, should have taken it further really.
