Operation Price Check #4

The managers over at Kroger may thank me for this.

It was close to 9pm when I left the gym tonight. I needed to grab a few things for dinner at the grocery store. There is a Randall’s on my way home; and I honestly didn’t feel like requesting a refund if Kroger overcharged me tonight.

Of  course, it happened at Randall’s. “Operation Price Check” is only a Kroger thing (for now) to find out how much the retailer overcharges me in one year’s time on groceries; but Randall’s has the same rule: If you are overcharged for any item, you are entitled to 1 of that item for free.

It was a small one… but fair is fair. Randall’s charged me .89 for a cucumber that was supposed to be .69. Tonight, I’m adding .89 to the Houston Food Bank donation envelope!

For a full explanation of how “Operation Price Check” works, go back to the post on December 13th.
