Our shopping came to £115 yesterday. (my DP sneaked 3 bottles of value vodka through). Checkout lady was so busy asking a greying 37 year old for ID? that she tapped in 3 x vodka, then scanned 2 as well. plus sausages were buy 2 for 2.50. We were charged the normal price. It's not often i check the receipt. But hey result. CS gave us refund and items for freeeeeee. we ended up having 30 odd pound back.

yes, only in last few weeks because for the first time dp asked what a specific item had cost -

and low and behold noticed had been charged for the same thing three times

Mistakes happen, but I'm not paying for them.

I tend to count it up (nearest 50p) as I load it onto the belt. If it's vastly different I will check it. I do check that offers have been added correctly though.

I have noticed an over charge before, but not until I arrived home, it was a while ago now, i phoned tesco after i put the shop away, they said no prob when you are next in, we'll sort your refund out. Again, it was refund and the item for free. DP was a little concerned yesterday, as the refund went over a certain amount, therefore the duty manager had to be informed and the checkout opperator would be spoken too. I said tuff, should be concentrating. Sorry can be buvvered to check this, enjoying my free vodka, with DC ofcourse

I normally check my receipt as we are walkibg out of the shop, just to make sure the offers went through. I have worked in supermarkets and now a small shop where offers don't always work. It's feeble and probably petty, but was in somerfield the other day, bought some eggs, label said £1.05 and i got charged £1.35. (I know it's only 30p but still..) And couple months ago on some wine we bought every saturday to go with pizza (typical sat eve - we have no lo's yet) label said £3.99 we got charged £5.99. They finally put price up to £5.99 after about a month!! I am so my mothers daughter! (I hate that sometimes)

yep = I check every week after I've put everything away. My local sainsburys are very good and always refund me even smal 50p-£l amounts if something hasn't been charged right. Feel like a right tittletattle asking but I feel it's better in my purse than theres.
