But I paid CASH!

But I paid CASH!

Post  BethG on Fri Sep 18, 2009 7:48 pm

So after work today I went to the supermarket and paid for my week's worth of groceries in cash. Just as we completed the transaction, I caught that the cashier had charged me for a 24-pack case of beer instead of a 12-pack. She just waved me towards the customer service counter and said they'd fix it for me. Grrrr. Not my mistake but now I'm wasting my time getting it fixed. Grrrr.

So I wait in line again. The next person has to return the 24-pack and refund the money before I can purchase/pay for the 12-pack. No problem, but she grabs a card and says "we'll just put it on this." And not knowing what she was doing, I didn't say anything.

Oh, I get it now. She refunds my money on a store gift card and then pays for the new purchase using the card. But then gives me the card and shows me the balance on it. WTF? I PAID IN CASH AND I WANT MY CASH BACK! When I return something on my Visa debit card, it has to go back on that they always tell me, so what gives them the right to put my CASH on a gift card? Pisses me off. It's not a huge deal but for someone on a tighter budget, they're out that cash.

I should have returned something else for CASH and then paid for it that stupid gift card. That would have showed 'em, right? Duh

That's exactly what I'm talking about Nika. There's been times in my life when that money was very much needed for something else during the week. It's the principle of the thing.

Nope, my husband HATES Wal-Mart! I was a Meijer store, which is actually quite similar except they actually pay their employees decent wage. And still manage to have pretty much the same prices, go figure.

lol, i think i remember beth saying how much she HATED walmart and will even pay more for an item at another store just to avoid it... but yeah ive more than once had to go to customer service to get a refund for being charged more than once for a single item at walmart, one time i bought a new swiffer wet jet and the lady rang up THREE of them and i didnt notice till i had already paid, so i had to stand in another line to get my money back! UGH! luckily they gave me back my cash though lol! same thing happened once with a BOX, not a package, but a big expensive box of diapers, and that is the reason i scan my entire receipt before i ever leave a walmart lol!

Last time I went to walmart I bought a sobe for my husband who was with me at the register. The cashier lady was this old skinny heroine addict looking woman. She put the glass sobe bottle too far over the edge of the counter and it fell on the ground and shattered cutting my toes and ankle.

I was waiting forever for a manager to come, and they were supposed to call me because they couldn't find the right accident form for me to fill out and they never called.

So lame.

I've never heard of Meijer though, they must not have them here in the west.

Sorry you are short on cash, that really does stink that they didn't refund you the money even though it was THEIR mistake.

Meijer is based out of Grand Rapids, Michigan and has stores in Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Illinois, and Kentucky. So just a midwestern type of thing!

We don't have Winn-Dixie, Piggley-Wiggley (I think that's what it's called?), Food Lion, or Jewel here. Just Kroger, Martins (popular local chain), Meijer, and the almighty-Walmart!

I hear you about their mistake at your expense!! I've never of a grocery store giving you a store gift card if you have your receipt and paid cash for it, that's crazy of them!!!

Tiff,
My sister had something similar happen to her where a jar of pickles fell out of my mom's basket, broke, and she slipped trying to get away from the mess. They mailed her a $500 check for the incident. I will admit, I love Walmart. I don't know how much they pay their employees, but their prices are great. The only things I don't like about them are 1)not enough open checkout lines and 2)produce isn't very good. I do shop at Winco a lot too, but they only except cash, check, or debit card, and one of my debit cards is a check card, which means I can only treat it like a credit card when I swipe it, so I can't use it at Winco. But, I love that Winco had a bulk food section(kind of) where I can scoop up how much I need depending on my needs at home, cereal, rice, spaghetti, sugar, flour, etc.

That is soooooo lame, Beth. I can't believe it - so much hassle, and then get a stupid gift card with the money on it. Lame......

Yeah, I so hear you. I try to avoid Walmart at all cost. We do have Meijer's here too and I usually go there instead of Walmart - but I guess I never had to return anything and get a gift card.
