My mom came across a scrapbook she kept when she was in grade school, mom is in her mid-fifties now, and wanted to transfer all the stuff into a 12x12 album. That poor scrapbook is held together with a couple threads of the binder and a wish these days. Lol

Anyway, we go to M's, and they have a big display of their Recollections albums out. They're priced at $9.99, and all their albums are 50% off, so my mom figured shed get one because that was a good deal. She picked up some page protectors, too. We get to the register and, after her 40% off coupon, her bill is a little over $5 - because get album rang up for one cent. The cashier immediately told the manager so they could fix it, but they let my mom keep the album. Since she really isn't into scrapbooking, it was a total win for her.

Great deal lucky her. I'm glad they let her keep it. I hate when they do the price change. For instance, while pumping gas it goes up 9 cents. Like seriously they can't let you finish pumping first.

That is awesome!! I got a Spellbinders stamp and die cut set on BF for a penny. The cashier didn't catch it and I didn't notice it until I was outside and going over the total in my head. I knew it had to be wrong and pulled out the recpt. Sure enough, a penny!

It really made her day, so I was happy for her. We found her hold scrapbook while we were cleaning out a room to turn it into a craft room, and I know she was bummed because the cover had fallen off, and things were coming off the pages. This score got her excited to transfer her stuff over, so I'm happy for her

That is illegal. If you are already pumping, they are required to let you finish pumping at the price the pump read when you began.

There was a gas station near where I live that one of the workers accidentally put in 2 something a gallon for the price when gas was over 4$ a gallon after Katrina. All the pumps were going and they had to let them finish what they were pumping at the price they were pumping. It made the news when it happened. And it sounded like it was a Federal, not state thing.

Yay! It is good to hear a "happy ending" Michaels story for a change.
