:HECK YOUR RECEIPTS BEFORE LEAVING THE CHECK-OUT



> > I bought a
> bunch of stuff, over £150, & I glanced at my receipt as the cashier was
> handing me the bags. I saw a cash-back of £40. I told her I didn't
> request a cash back & to delete it. She said I'd have to take the £40
> because she couldn't delete it. I told Her to call a supervisor.
> Supervisor came & said I'd have to take it.. I said NO! Taking the £40
> would be a cash advance against my Credit card & I wasn't paying

> At that point I told the cashier & she deleted it. The total came out
