Why is it that ....

every week when we do our family shop at Sainsbury's the bill is always, for example, £64 for 64 items or £70 for 70 items or £105 for 105 items, etc, etc?

And, no, we don't buy the same items every week.

Is this some strange marketing/pricing ploy?

Seems a good deal to me.

Get a crate of scotch and nothing else!

Strange how everything is averaging out at £1. Perhaps as Pine Man says you should try for a crate of scotch on its own!!!

You count your shopping items?

Pine Man

I like your thinking, but, unfortunately, I don't think it quite works like that. ;-)

No we don't count our shopping items. It's detailed on the Sainsbury's receipt.

Mentioning store receipts, I seem to gain free items or/and/plus cash vouchers with the weekly/monthly shopping. Always seems to be incorrect prices on the receipts, so usually a customer services adjustment required.

Never use to bother checking receipts, but I sure do now.

Always check your receipts, mistakes are easily made no matter how computerised the tills etc. are. Besides some supermarkets will correct the mistake in your favour (Please don't berate the checkout chick) and you may well walk out of the store with a bargain. ..Bingalau..

What's that, some new form of pre-cooked poultry product?

When you get to my age any female under 60 is considered a *chick*.

As a very early riser, I tend to do my Supermarket shop very early in the morning after training...24 hour Tesco is close.. used to be that real "checkout chicks" were on hand to take your cash...Not anymore... Now we have automatic talking tills! "Please re-scan this product" "Product not recognised" are but two of the regular responses I get when trying to scan my items through. This results in a supervisor being called, till crashes and yep, back to the checkout chick....don't knock em, beat the machine every time!
