I went to drug store to get a few items. I am buying things on sale. First I was going to write a check, then she was giving me a hard time saying the check number had to be in the 500's my check was like 256 # so she wouldn't take it. then she wouldn't take a 100.00 bill. so I ended up using my credit card. I get back home she over charged me. I went back to the store. she was 5.36 off

I've had this happen before... they wouldn't take my check because it wasn't over a certain number. i thought that was so stupid. you can start your checks at any number that you want when you start a new account. i think that's crazy

Yes only at some stores. but most stores will not hassle you. as long as your spending.

i most certainly would have raised cain in that store when she told me that i couldn't use my money. I would have told her to go get her manager, and when i got done there, i would have written a letter to the better business bureau as well as their corporate headquarters.

I would have gone straight to the manager. I'm sorry you had that experience. I too have had trouble being overcharged. I always report it.

It is totally wrong. I've never seen store not accepting checks because of numbers. Cash? by law they have to take cash, regardles of bill. Call Chamber of Commerce or report it online.

I have seen and heard of companies that do put a limit on their check numbers. I think that it should be a requirement for them to post this information somewhere near the cash register and large enough that you can see it. It would probably save from a lot of this happening to people. I can not believe that after all of that you were still over charged that is just horrible.

I have had this problem with checks befor also. It has to be above a certain number or they will not take it. It is dumb, but not worth getting bent out of shape over. It sounds like they gave you a really hard time. As hard as it is though when this happends, you need to just brush it off. Life it too short to let the little things like this get you upset.

They should have their check accepting policies written on a sign by the cash register. I've never heard of such a policy before and don't understand it. I would go back and ask to speak with the store manager and regional director.
