I went grocery shopping yesterday. The lady at the register looked like a rook and had no idea what she was doing. A rep came over and took several people out of the line and put them at a different cashier aisle. I decided to stay. I had my own reason why. Mainly because there was a hot girl in front of me I was checking out and eventually started talking too. Dimples get em all the time. Moving on from my narcissistic attitude, I wasn't paying attention when I finished at the register and swiped my card.

Now today I noticed that they charged me $334 more than they were suppose to. Looking at the receipt, it didn't add up. There are voids however the charges for the voids still show up. Not sure how that can be the case. Its a day later (less than 24 hours), is there any way they could deny that refund? I'd like to know what I may face before going there. Not sure whats going on but this is my second instance of an overcharge. First was mlb.tv

It's easy to say I should have paid attention, I can also say that this shouldn't have happened to begin with. Anyone here have any advice before I go back? If they deny the refund and say the charge is legit, I might just request them to provide me footage from yesterday. Most likely they would deny that so I would have to go through legal channels. I'd rather take care of this a more civil (and quick) way. What should I do and what to expect?

Assuming you're not going to take Mr. Nitelight's advice, they should be able to resolve it if you go to customer service. Alternatively, assuming you used a credit card, if you call and tell them it's an improper charge they might fix it for you without the hassle of Walmart customer service.

I have no legal basis for this, however, I would think if you have your receipt you will be fine. Walmart prides itself on matching and beating all competitors' prices. Based on that, I can only assume they would not want to deal with the PR nightmare you could cause for them as a result.

Done. Took care of it about an hour ago. I was compensated well by the store manager as well. Bought some sporting goods and went on my way.

I walked away satisfied and it only took a few minutes. Bravo wal-mart. Although I aint shopping at no wal-mart again :lol:

sting me once, shame on me, sting me twice, Ima #@$@#$# you up and end up in jail. I'll take my shopping elsewhere. Wish they had a pathmark here in MI :lol:

We shop at Walmart all the time. Never really have bad experiences, and many of the prices dwarf the other stores, including BJ's, Costco, etc.
