I took Sam to Target yesterday to pick up some clothes for him and Lucy with some money my mom gave them. I also needed to pick up some other stuff. Well, I had a few coupons for chocolate and baby wash. One of the coupons was for free chocolate from M&M Mars HERE. I got up to the check-out, and the guy scanned all my stuff. I gave him the coupons, and he scanned those as well. On a free coupon, the store has to enter the amount of the product for reimbursement. It rang up as .94, so he had to go in and enter the coupon for that amount.
I noticed that I had saved a lot of money on that receipt--like +/-$13, and really, I should only have saved a few dollars from my coupons. I headed out the door with Sam, got my bags in the car, and then looked closely at the receipt. Instead of .94 for the chocolate coupon, the cashier had entered $9.45!!!!
I explained to Sam about how to make it right, and that the cashier would get in trouble at the end of the day because there wasn't enough money in his drawer. We went back inside, and I found the cashier. I explained his mistake to him, and he called his manager over. She looked at it and was so glad I had come back in. She didn't know the easiest way to have me pay the deficit. She told me to hang on a second while she stepped away to talk to someone, I guess. She came back and told me, "We appreciate your honesty. Don't worry about it. You can have it."
Target paid me $8.50 for telling the truth.
