Do you check your shopping receipts?

When you go shopping, do you always check your receipt to make sure the prices are right and everything tallies? Do you check the totals before you sign if you're paying by credit? I find myself careless sometimes and do not check especially when I go grocery shopping and with so many items on the list, I just take whatever amount is churned out. But I do check when I go home and unload the groceries. So far, I have not had any discrepancies. Are you vigilant in doing your checking?

I hardly ever check my receipts when I go shopping. I know I should probably pay a little more attention to it, but when I'm at the store and I have three kids to worry about the receipt is the last thing on my mind. I'm more worried about making sure I leave the store with all the kids and that they didn't take anything off of the shelves when I wasn't looking. *LoL* I don't bother to check once I get home either because the stores that I normally shop at are 30 minutes away from my home. By the time I get home and unload everyone and everything, the last thing I want to do is find that they missed something and then have to drag everyone back to the store. I guess in my case, ignorance is bliss. :P

I check the prices as they scan or if i am still unloading the trolley i will do it when i get the reciept. I have caught quite a few discrepancies doing this. Some things have been scanned more than once, other things have been over priced - i have even had some things scanned that i don't even buy! Recently I went to the butcher shop and got about $20 worth of meat. I took it up to the register and it was scanned. The lady told me i owed $150! I asked her to check it and she fixed it for me..

I always check my shopping receipts just to be sure I didnt pay more than what I had bought. Sometimes cashiers make mistakes and inout wrong data. Its imporatnt to check so we could refund any more amount that we had paid by accident.

When I purchase something or have my grocery shopping I always check my receipt if they punch the right price of the item.

When I go shopping, I always check my receipt to make sure the prices are right and the number is right. I find myself careless sometimes and do not check especially when I go grocery shopping and with so many items on the list, I just take whatever amount is churned out. But I do check when I go home and unload the groceries. So far, I have not had any discrepancies. Once the casher forgot to put a dish into my pags and I called them ,then they give me money back, but the dish is back to former price.

I always check my receipt to confirm the production on receipt is what I take .And if paying by credit,I will check the amount so that I won't make a mistake. In fact,I didn't do this before . But one day,I found the receipt included what I didn't take after go home,after that ,I always check and confirm when paying .
