Conflicting Prices of Crayola Crayons at 7-Eleven Edsa-Quezon Ave

We went to 7-11 Edsa-Quezon Ave to buy a basic set of Crayola crayons. I saw the price (P17) so I handed a P20 bill to the cashier. I was surprised that he asked me to give him P9 more. I thought maybe I saw the wrong price so I gave him the P9.

I checked the receipt and it said P29 alright.

Out of curiosity, I went back to the school supplies section. Sure enough, the tag said P17, almost half the price encoded in their computer!

I hope they check and correct any conflicting prices soon.

    1. That was my only purchase that time so it was easy to notice. I've read from another site that even the big stores have inaccurate records, we just don't notice the discrepancy because we buy a lot of items and thus are unable to keep tabs on the total.

  2. Oh, wow. It's a good thing you noticed. Did you complain ? Diba lowest price prevails ?

  3. That is awful. Isn't there a DTI policy that the price tag prevails. That store should be reported.

    1. I think there is such a policy. I called 7-11 Philippines' attention to this post via Facebook and they promptly replied that they would double check their prices and tags.

  4. Why 7-eleven? I'm sure Divisoria is way way cheaper.

  5. Nyeks! Seriously P17 to P29!? False printing if I must say.. If I were you, I would've showed them the tag on the display. If they won't change it, I won't buy from them.

  6. Ang layo naman ng difference. They should do something about it. Hopefully, they apologized to you in a way they should.

  11. This has happened to me more than once not just in 7-eleven. They always give an excuse. Oh well...

    1. I think it happens a lot, we just don't notice because we buy a lot of items. It is another reason why I dislike the trend of groceries not putting tags on individual items. It's harder to check the prices and the total.

  12. hope you get their attention to correct the error... masisira sila sa mga customers nyan. Yahweh bless.

  13. Ouch! This is bad.. Hope 7-11 would take action on this. Most of their branches ksi walang managers to supervise the store. Most of the tiime, its just the cashier and the guard. Tsk tsk.

  14. Being in keen is just fine.
    We really have to get what our money's worth.
    I am not very particular with comparing prices because
    every shop or store has prices lower than the other or higher
    in some goods but I never encounter such experience.

  15. wow..it's so keen of you to notice it. But it's helpful anyway. At least we are warned where to buy and not to buy. For practicality's sake, buy the item where it is cheaper.
