Okay, this isn’t exactly breaking news. The policy changed on April 30 this year. I just can’t believe it missed my radar! King Soopers no longer gives customers an item for FREE, when it scans incorrectly. As of now, the grocery store’s Scan Accuracy Guarantee states that they will simply give you the lower price. This is definitely bad news for eagle-eyed bargain hunters and receipt checkers, like me. (It was always a welcome surprise to get an item for free.) For me, it happens more often than you’d think and not just at King Soopers. I see price discrepancies all the time at most stores. It’s just that most people don’t review their receipt. The policy change should not discourage you from taking a quick glance at your receipt. Keep checking to ensure you’re charged correctly. For savers, every penny counts!
