Yesterday, for the first time, I was able to put The Scanning Code of Practice into effect on one of our grocery purchases! It’s never happened to me before, so I was pretty excited.
For anyone not familiar with the SCP, this is it:
The thing is, I didn’t catch it myself. We were putting our purchases through and a lady came up to our cashier with her receipt and said “The McCain frozen pies I purchased were $1.29 and they scanned at $2.19.” I said “Really? Cool, we bought one too! Did you know we now get it free?” The lady said “Yep! Terrific isn’t it?”
We both waited for about 10 minutes for someone to check the price (wasn’t thrilled about that), and sure enough, we both got 1 pie free. I told the cashier that this was the first time it happened to me and she told me that I should really watch the register at the store because it happens ALL the time. I walked out feeling great about saving $2.19
We also saved a bit of money on couponing yesterday too. Pampers, Underjams and Easy Ups were on sale at Metro for 12.99 (which is good for brand name Pampers). We had one $3 off and one $2.00 coupon for those products. So we got $39.98 worth of diapers for $20.98. Not a bad savings there, I would say. Although I wish we could coupon here like they do in the U.S.A. That would be awesome.
Hope you all had a great weekend…it’s a scorcher here, we’ve spent the majority of the day inside.
