Scanning Code of Practice (SCOP)
What is SCOP? If the scanned price of a non-price ticketed item is higher than the shelf price or any other displayed price, the customer is entitled to receive the item free, up to a $10 maximum. When the item has a price tagged, the lowest price applies. When identical items are incorrectly priced, the second one will be sold at the correct price.
What happens if two or more identical non-price ticketed items are incorrectly scanned?
- Customers are entitled to the first item free (up to a maximum of $10) and the subsequent item(s) at the correct price.
Will the cashier give me the product free without mentioning the SCOP?
- It is likely that you will have to ask the cashier to apply the Scanning Code of Practice. If the store is a participant they must give it to you for free or $10 off if the priced scanned is higher than the shelf or other displayed price.
I never forget this rule, as alot of times, you can get stuff for free and dont even realize it. And it is worth the wait while they make sure of their mistake! 🙂
**You must pay attention because they won’t just give it to you, you gotta mention it..
