Bought some Asda boxed Egg Fried Rice (250g) in Lower Earley store today. After self scanning it, the machine asked me to weigh it. I did, and it came up at 20p. It's supposed to be 73p, but has been entered at 73p per kg. (I guess it should have been 18p, but the box weighs....)

did you go to CS to get the £2.50 coupons as they undercharged you?
buy a lot first before you do so

Probably a one off, miss print off lable at that store.

it was the printed label on the cardboard box, not any other kind of store label.. and it came up on the scanner as EF Rice, so it can only be an error in the price of it. If Asda do this centrally, it's likely to be more than one store... until they spot the error. If you use the self serve lanes, you'll probably be safest....

Just watch out for the tap on the shoulder as you leave the store:p

Can't see that you could have done anyhing wrong.. You picked something off the shelf, scanned it, followed the instructions, paid, then left.... You can't be in the wrong if they misprice it...

I hate to get picky but it's technically theft if you realise that it is a misprice.

s.1 Theft Act 1968 - A person is guilty of theft if he dishonestly appropriates property belonging to another with the intention of permanently depriving the other of it.

An individual can dishonestly appropriate property even with the consent of the owner (i.e. the shop). Whilst this may seem unfair, it is unfortuantely the law.
