I got overage today at Lowes Foods to the tune of .76. I was shocked. I thought they "fixed" their system and it would not allow this, but it happened today.
I DID, however, expect to have a zero total. I purchased 4 bags of the Quaker mini rice cakes, 4 boxes of the Keebler Right Bites and 1 bag of the No-Yolk Egg Noodles. Here's the breakout below:
4 Quaker mini rice cakes = 1.00 x 4 = 4.00
4 Keebler right bites = 3.29 x 4 = 13.16
1 bag No-Yolk Egg Noodles = 2.15
4 Quaker qs for .75 doubled = -6.00
4 Keebler mfg qs for .75 doubled = -6.00
LF 3 week 1.49 q for the Keebler = - 7.20
1 No-Yolks mfg q for .75 doubled = -1.50
1 Insta-Save q for .75 for the No-Yolks= -.75
This was not my total. My total was -.76. The system "auto" adjusted some of the the qs. That's why I'm a little puzzled. I quickly grabbed a gift card AND gave the cashier my $5 Fresh Rewards that I previously earned, so technically, I received $5.76 overage. I paid $4.24 for a $10 giftcard.
Yipee, Yippee, Yippee!!! and, for the cherry on the sundae, we actually eat these snacks - what ??? "buy" something that you will actually use!?!?! What a novel concept!!!
