{it pays to pay attention}

This week while I was at my local Staples picking up some school and office supplies, I had an experience that I wanted to share with you all.  One of the advertised deals this week was the Kingston 16GB Flash Drive for $9.00.  flash driveHowever, when I got to checkout this flash drive rung up at $16.99.  Knowing that I spent several minutes in the store searching for exactly the right product advertised, I was a little confused.  I asked the cashier to double check the price for me and she confirmed that the flash drive did indeed ring up for higher than the advertised sale price.

 

This is a really good example of why it pays to pay attention during checkout.  If I had been distracted with something else during the process, I likely would have completely missed seeing the flash drive ring up at the higher price.  And while it’s only a difference of $7.99, missing a discrepancy like this one multiple times over the course of a year or longer will really start to add up.
