Tis the season to buy! Beware My son is 19 and went shopping just before going to the movies. They went to Wal-Mart . He went into the check out line to buy a coke. Price should be a dollar 36 cents. He gave his debit card trans action. He did not get paper receipt. Yesterday he checked his account and found that Wal-Mart charged him for One hundred thirty-six dollars and some cents. He thought he was screwed. Hubby went with him to Wal-mart and first they started with the excuse game. Hubby being aware of program glitches told manager to look transaction up in the computer. They wanted to keep money of son and so they gave cash back to him at store. Now if you know what they pulled with excuses of new employee, he payed for next person in lines grocery etc. Don't take no with Wal-mart . Do be civil and remember from this It is better to pay with cash or check. Computers do have glitches. Hope no one else has this happen. Robin

Have anyone else have this happen?

Wow scary!
Glad your DH went with ds though & it basically worked out.
Not had it happen to me but if it does you bet I will let them know.

Thanks for the heads up :)

I definitely never leave the line with out a receipt. I have been known to hold the line up because the cashier for whatever didn't give me my receipt.

 Never happened to me. I try not to use my debit card for little things.  I always watch the total and it will ask you again if $xxx.xx is okay.

Glad he was able to get his money back!

As soon as the Christmas musci goes on I don't go into Wal Maart unless I absolutely have to...which I don't.  I refuse to enter stores who begin their Christmas slaes before Halloween.  Last week was my last time in Wal Mart until after the first of the year.  Wile I stood in line waiting fro my scripts I heard "Siglent night" I turned to the guy behind me and asked..."Did I miss Thanksgiving?"

We had it happen. We were at Checkers and did not get a reciept. When I asked the cashier she said she threw it away. I said, well you just did it so get it. she couldn't. bull..I asked for another to be printed and was told it could not be. dh said forget it. The next day I checked the bank! OMG our $22.27 meal COST US $222.70 , took 2 managers and over a week to get my money back!
