Have your say

And there I was thinking I was going doolally folks.

That was until I watched a Which? report on ITV’s Daybreak on supermarket prices.

I’ve been warning you to always check your till receipts. Earlier this year, on both my Sainsbury’s and Co-op receipts, special offers were not deducted from my bill.

In both cases the supermarket’s answer was that the tills are programmed from head office, so go contact them. Not good enough.

Which? has revealed that some of our top supermarkets are putting many product prices up before offering them as a multi-buy.

So the ‘offer’ isn’t that great, and in some instances is actually dearer.

The supermarkets have apologised, admitting they occasionally make mistakes.

But it just shows you should always check those prices.
