    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

    Target 11st 3lbs by end of April 2017

    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.
