Friday Fail: Register Checkout Mishaps
I have to go ahead and post this again, as a reminder to everyone (mostly myself!) LOL! It's so important to make sure you read your store receipt and check your bags before leaving the store. Just this week alone, (1) I forgot a bag of 4 razors at Target, (2) was overcharged $4 at Winn-Dixie, (3) didn't get a $5 Target Gift Card. Major Fail! Thanks to a friend who picked up the razors for me, I saved one trip to Target. I have to make another trip to fix the other mistakes.
On a funny note, the cashier I had last night at Target was new. I bought two Venus Embrace razors to get a $5 Gift Card. When the Gift Card prompt on the register computer came up, he got a bit confused. "You need to give me a gift card", he said. I explained, "No you need to give me the gift card." Then I had to tell him where to find it! I successfully kept my laughter inside my head.
One of my coupons also wouldn't work even with two supervisors helping (I was supposed to get another free bodywash.) I was already tired from the skating party and was ready to go home that I forgot to get the gift card from him. (They normally hand it to you right away.) After combing through my bag 5 times with no luck, I finally called Target. They had their Loss Prevention person watch the video to see what exactly happened. I now have some Target coupons (instead of the gift card) waiting for me at the store.
