CVS today.......1 palmolive w/.25 q, 1 scott tissue w/2.00q, 2 lady speed sticks w/2 - 1.00qs, 2 colgate w/2 1.00 qs, and 4 drinks for the kids, total was 23.40 before qs...after my oop was Zero....the new cashier had a problem w/ a coupon, asked someone else, she scanned her card and forced it....for the total of 18.15! She said I must of had some good coupons... I walk out and look over the receipt and see the error...I should have used 12 ebs and less than $2 oop....went back in, I felt bad...she didn't know how to fix it, she called someone else, she didn't know how, they called the manager, she didn't know what to do..said it was too late...I was told today was my lucky day...and I got 16 in ebs back! At least my conscious is clear.

That's one of those little gifts from the universe. They couldn't/wouldn't fix it, so obviously you were meant to have it. Woot!

I appreciate that you went back in to try to fix the problem, and it just proves that honesty is usually a good thing in those circumstances

Awesome! I have to make a CVS run tomorrow, however, I know that I will not make out nearly as good as you!

If it had only been a few dollars, I probably wouldn't have wasted my time, but that was a big difference, so I felt guilty not speaking up....it paid off though, so
they did thank me for coming back in though....another reason I went back, they are starting to recognize me and I didn't want them to realize the screw up later and remember me....they have always been nice to me, I don't want that to change!
