Spare a minute

I got a mail from a friend about billing issues with Big Bazaar, Personally I too was a victim in many places about this, Also this mail reminded me a brief write-up by Ushabangalore- shoppers’ paradise or? ” some times back.

Just have a look on the below picture about the product price & billed amount, Oops… it’s a huge difference!!!


As per my observation many people don’t even care to have a look on the bill, They just throw in a trash once out of shop, So next time be careful and spare a minute to check the bill…. You may save some of your hard earned money.

    yes, this is becoming a very common scenario as such descrepancies are not taken serious by the authorities and are allowed to be rested. Many stores having the billing system continue do this wonders..

    In our recent experience we have seen that the original MRP tags are overpasted with increased MRP by Fab Mall in Indira nagar for an item not even produced by them…

    That happens all the time in the States, too. They always blame it on some “computer error.”

    Hmm, forget looking at the bills, might as well give Big Bazaar a skip!

    Levin, happens in the US too? Really? I have never once been billed wrong there and I have ALWAYS checked my receipts too. And if it really happened to you, you can sue them and make money off of it.

    One particularly large American retailer, who shall remain unnamed, but obvious since I mentioned that they were “paticularly large”….(lol!) has been in more hot water than a teabag over just these sort of “errors.” Never thought of getting litigous over it.
    Incidentally, one thing I found kind of funny/interesting, with one specific Indian product having it’s price grossly inflated here, is Chandrika. One shop was splitting up the 3 bar packs into individual units and selling them for over $3.00 U.S.D. a piece. I bought the soap seperately, but didn’t get the free talc offered on the sticker.
    I wasn’t too upset by the price, but I want my free talcum powder!
