I felt Cheated

The other day, I bought a 9watt bulb and I pay it around 3.5 USD which I think over for the actual price but I was not sure because it's been how many months since I last bought the same and in my estimate, the price was just over a little of 2 dollars at other shop. I ask for the price again because I doubted in which the attendant had confirmed so I just paid. I'd suppose to buy it at the usual shop where I'm a regular customer but I have some favorite snack being sold the area where I bought the bulb so I went straight there so that I can do it one time. I found out later that I'd paid more than the price should be with that particular bulb wattage.

Honestly, I get mad and I want to call the store or go back at there but I realized that I was not given an official receipt so I do not have the advantage.

@m_audrey6788 I should have demanded it. Some shops do not use cash registered machine so it will not generate auto sales tape/receipt so an OR must be demanded if you're not given in which one thing I failed to do.

Such a sad experience. Sorry to hear that. Make it an experience to be more careful next time.

Yes, that is right. I must assert my inquiry about the price.

You have to be careful next time you buy something. Sometimes you paid more than it should be.

Sometimes we also need to look at the brand, not all led 9 watts bulb are made the same, a Philips bulb would cost more than an Omni of the same wattage and a made in China Firefly would cost much less. Sometimes led temperature like cool white, daylight and warm white differ in price even if they have the same power. I'm very sorry that you felt cheated, what brand did you get?

It's Philips (my preferred brand) cool day light LED bulb and it is only 110 at store where I am a regular customer.

It's very hard to know sometimes if you are being charged too much or not.
