Fish and I did the majority of our Christmas shopping for the girls today. Shopping for three kids is a lot more expensive than I thought it would be. Actually, I was fully prepared but seeing it in black and white on a receipt made me gulp a little. Something I found annoying at Toys R Us is that you can’t see your purchases adding up on the screen, that isn’t facing us as the items are being rung up. Instead I can see them one at a time on the touchpad payment thing in front of me. They don’t even tally up sale prices until the very end. I blame this for the fact that we weren’t charged for one of our items.
When we got to the car Fish asked me if they discounted the Calico Pet family that we bought. If you buy $100 worth of Calico Pet items, you get a family for free. I groaned and told him that I didn’t see a discount, but then! I scanned the whole receipt and I couldn’t see the $80 charge for the playhouse we bought. We didn’t have the time to go back and pay because it was getting close to time for Clarabelle to come home from school.
I wonder if there is any way that they would take a payment over the phone? I hate the idea of going back there this weekend when it’s crowded. Would it be bad to wait until after the holidays to pay them?
Edited to add: The numbers I wrote were a little confusing. We had purchased the Townhouse ($80 that we weren’t charged for), kitchen set ($25) and a family set ($20).
