    Tesco is the best place to be over charged imo , as long as you don't query is at the checkout and take it up with CS instead

    Double the money back plus the item , I love when they over charge

    Asda give you a £2 gift card if they overcharge you, although you sometimes have to ask for it as they seem to conveniently forget.

    I was overcharged £2.79 the other week in Tesco - the one time I forgot to check.

    Contacted Customer Services who asked my clubcard number, said I had been a good loyal customer and sent me a £10 moneycard.

    My peeved state turned into a

    Also check receipts for cashier errors - bought three items the same, got charged for four, YS scanned at original price or first reduction price if reduced twice or more, loose produce weighed as more expensive item. For example, I was charged for an organic butternut squash not the standard one. It's 60p more a kg.

    I have always done this - much to the annoyance of my OH when its only pennies - but look after the pennies and pounds will look after themselves - habit I got from my late mother. I have now got an A$da savings xmas savings card and each time I get the £2 from them it goes on it - think I have accumulated £64 since 2015 - always handy at back of the purse just in case.

    I think it's double the difference not double the actual price.
    E.g. If you were charged 50p instead of 40p - you'd get double the difference = 20p.

    I always find I have to ask.

    Also once my shop came to more than I expected so I checked my receipt before leaving the store and the very first item was for a £34.99 printer ink cartridge that I'd not bought!
    Apparently the cashier had done a price check for another customer and forgotten to clear it.
    They refused to give me double because they said it was cashier error.

    Not sure

    We bought a microwave for £40 in with the Christmas shop. We had drink and printer inks and kids clothes so really didn't know we were over charged. I did say at the check out "how much?" In a jokey sort of way

    Weren't till we got outside and lit a smoke that I saw on the receipt the microwave had gone through twice -£80

    Off to CS and we were refunded £80 and given the microwave

    Happened before with a 2 piece child's outfit. Went through as two items, was refunded £35 and given the outfit

    Much as I dislike this sleazeball rag, this link to The Sun explains DTD:

    https://www.thesun.co.uk/living/1888357/how-you-can-get-free-food-and-money-back-at-tesco/

    For example, you bought a large box of soap powder which was priced at £5 on the shelf but you get charged £10 at the till.
    All you need to do is go to the customer service desk, explain there has been an error and say you want “double the difference”.
    You should then receive back £5 for the overcharge AND an additional £5.


    Tesco is shy about promoting the policy but a spokesman told The Sun Online that it was “a way to provide a little extra help to its customers”.


    Last week, a Tesco customer bought a gift box that was in the sale for £12.50 but they were charged £30 instead.
    He posted on the 10 Ways Facebook group about how he had got £30, plus an extra £5 for the inconvenience.


    A Tesco spokesman said: “In the unlikely event that we charge you more than the price shown on the shelf or on the product at the time of purchase, we’ll give you double the difference.
