I went to costco today. Pants were on sale for 12.97. Went to the cash and the price said 33 dollars. They got a cashier to check the price and came back and said I was right and told the other cashier to charge me 12.97. I was going to mention the price scan error code but I didn't bother. Could I have done this? Can I go back and get the pants for 2:97$+ tax assuming they didn't fix it yet?

Thanks

Yes you could go back if it's not fixed.

Was at Walmart customer service desk. The multi-buy savings on salad didn't show up on receipt. Clerk offered me the multi-buy price, so I had to chime in with, "But what about SCOP?" Tsk tsk.

It is very rare to find a cashier who automatically applies SCOP free (or $10 off)...usually they just change the price to what you tell them. But the policy states they are supposed to do it automatically.
