Shopping Reform & Modernization Act Claims

Were you shopping and realized after you paid, that you were overcharged? You may have a “scanner law” claim. Thousands of Michigan consumers are overcharged daily putting money in the deep pockets of super centers, pharmacies, and smaller chains, such as Meijer, Rite Aid, and Dollar General.

If you think you have been overcharged, go back to where the item was stocked and take another look at the displayed price. If you can, take a photo of it. If you think you may have a claim, let a store representative know. Ask to be given the difference in the price displayed and the price charged, and ask for your scanner law bonus. Many stores will not offer the bonus, so make sure to specifically inquire. If they need time to investigate (the law requires they pay within 48 hours, so they have a small window of time to investigate), or if they deny your bonus, insist on giving them your name, phone number and address so that they can send you your money in the mail.

Stores make an enormous amount of money through overcharging.  The store thinks that you won’t follow-up, so the general policy is to deny you your bonus and save $5.00!

Go home and document the event, including the name of the persons involved, and the reason why they denied the claim.
