How much of your hourly wage are you ready to give to the store for Free?
I have heard many who say, “it’s not worth it” or “I can’t be bothered” but have you really taken the time to realize the impact? Prime example was today, I purchased her Blackberries, she loves her berries, they were $3.49 each. Normally I am pretty good at watching, but the store was full of people and I just wanted to get out of there. I noticed on the way home that I was charged $4.99 for each 1/2 pint of berries.
I know many people who wouldn’t bother. Saying , “well it’s only $3.00”. No it’s not only $3.00. There is a little thing called SCOP
Now some of you may say what is SCOP ?
What Scop basically means is that if the price that rings in at the cash is different than the posted/advertised price you get the first item for free up to $10 ($10 off if it’s over $10) and the rest of the items at the sale price. In this case it would be $6.49 back. Do you make minimum wage? That’s over 1/2 an hours pay! Do you realize how common this is? Very common! What if this happened 1 time, every time you went grocery shopping every week and it was approx the same value of a mistake. That would be $337.48 in a year. Is there anything else you could think of to spend that money on rather than overpay for your groceries!
** Your purchase does not need to be rung off for Scop to apply. The moment your item is scanned and it comes up wrong, you are eligible for scop**
*You must bring it up, the cashier will not*
