Save Money By Using the Scanning code of Practice

When you are at the checkout in the grocery store or department stores such as Walmart, are you paying attention to what is being scanned in? More times than not we all forget to watch as our products are scanned in. To save yourself money, grief and maybe even score a free item up to $10, watch everything you purchase being scanned in. More times than not small items can be tagged wrong and scan in for more. If you miss that, you have just wasted your hard earned money! The Scanning Price Accuracy Code is there to protect us...the consumer. Use it! Be aware of it. And you will find that you will at least once score a free product because an item scans in wrong.

What is the Scanning Price Accuracy Code?

The Retail Council of Canada manages the Scanning Price Accuracy Code for us consumers to add an extra level of protection for us.

Here is just a snippet of the code that shows how it protects us and can actually get us a product free...

1.1 On a claim being presented by the customer, where the scanned price of a product at checkout is higher than the price displayed in the store or than advertised by the store, the lower price will be honoured; and

(a) if the correct price of the product is $10 or less, the retailer will give the product to the customer free of charge; or

(b) if the correct price of the product is higher than $10, the retailer will give the customer a discount of $10 off the correct price.

1.2 Where the same error recurs in scanning multiple units of a given product during a given transaction, the retailer will correct the scanning error in respect of each unit of the given product purchased, but is obliged to apply the policy set out in 1.1 (a) and (b) in respect of only one of the units.
