Shopper charged £50 for cabbage

Romsey Advertiser: Asda has apologised after a customer was charged more than 50 for a cabbage at a store in the West Midlands Asda has apologised after a customer was charged more than 50 for a cabbage at a store in the West Midlands

Supermarket chain Asda has apologised after a customer was charged more than £50 for a white cabbage.

Jean Hudson noticed the error after doing her weekly shop at the store in Tipton, West Midlands, with her husband Graham.

When she got to the car with her items, Mrs Hudson checked her receipt to find she had paid £53.55 for the vegetable.

The 61-year-old, from Sedgley near Dudley, told the Express and Star newspaper: "We were at the checkout and we went to pay and my husband said that the bill was a little steep, but I didn't think anything of it, to be honest.

"It's not unusual for us to spend a little more if there is a deal on. We had bought extra items including biscuits and a few items for the Tipton Food Bank and coffee for my son, so I thought nothing of it, but my husband kept grumbling about the amount all the way out of the shop and across the car park."

Asda has now fully reimbursed Mrs Hudson and given her a £2 voucher as a gesture of goodwill.

An Asda spokesman said: "A system glitch meant that the cabbage was scanned at the wrong price. We're sorry for any inconvenience caused and we'll ensure this doesn't happen again."

It comes after another customer was charged £450 for a loaf of bread at an Asda store in Wolverhampton last week.

Warehouse worker John Brown was also fully reimbursed after the over-the-odds transaction at the store in Jack Hayward Way.

I can't believe they didn't notice a £53 item in their shopping! Shows they have more money than those of us who cringe when the total bill is more than £10.
Even more unbelievable is that someone was charged £450 for a loaf of bread and didn't notice so he had to go back for a refund?

Easily done. People pay on plastic and never look at the amount, just type in their pin number and off they go.

I can't imagine what it would be like to do a shop and not know to the nearest £1 or so what the bill was going to be when I reached the checkout.

I was once charged £95 for a smart price chicken, I did notice and get a refund before leaving the store and I thought nothing of it at the time. Did wonder though what would have happened if somehow i had accidentally walked out of the store with something worth £95 without paying!!!

I was overcharged £45 recently by Wilkinson's, and did not notice until I checked my bank balance, which I do every other day.
The story management was very helpful and refunded the money, even though I was stupid enough not to keep the receipt. It just goes to show we can all make mistakes.
Lesson - always check the receipt.

I used to do my shopping online with Asda until they tried to charge me twice for a Christmas order which had already been paid for! I NEVER USED THEM AGAIN! That was THREE years ago but just two weeks ago I recieved TWO emails demanding payment for shopping worth £62 55 which they claimed had been delivered to me the previous day at the address they "always" delivered to. I might add I moved from that address almost TWO years ago!! They are notorious for doing these things.I won't touch them. All i was told when i contacted them was that no order had ever been generated by them so not to take any notice of the emails. Don't know if antone else remembers but on the television news two Christmases ago there was a hue and cry as Asda had been debiting customers cards up to FIVE times the value of their shopping!

Even when l pay by debit card l always look at the amount which comes up on the screen beforehand, but l`m still wondering if these " incidents" really happened, or maybe they happened on April fools day, only reported now, but then again l can be cynical, but only when l hear suspicious stories like someone being charged £450-00 for a loaf of bread !!!

I can assure you ,where Asda is concerned these things MOST CERTAINLY DO HAPPEN! Though it has not happened to me instore (probably because i've never been into one of their stores) but it came very close to happening with their online shopping....i was lucky!!!!

SO SMUG!! When you shop online there is no screen apart from your laptop and when that clearly tells you the total and then Asda calmly debit a different amount from your bank you don't know until its too late and i think you may well find that,when paying by card at the checkout of the store,its quite possible that what comes up on the screen is'nt necessarily what you may get debited for. People lead busy,hectic lives and at times are so rushed they may not spot these things till its too late. I do hope you remain so very perfect in all you do that you never make a mistake and overlook the incompentance of Asda,though i doubt you'd admit to it if you do. The fault in this matter lies firmly with Asda and no-one else!

Don`t be so STUPID, I am NOT smug, that`s just YOU being defensive, and looking for an argument by the sound of it, but OBVIOUSLY only able to do it anonymously, online, as all keyboard cowards do, you certainly WOULDN`T have the guts to say it to my face that`s for sure, pathetic !!!

To your " point" if it can serously be called that, l CLEARLY SAID, that l DON`T shop at Asda, l also DID NOT specify whether l shopped online OR NOT.
IS THAT CLEAR ENOUGH FOR YOU??

So, OBVIOUSLY, i wouldn`t know how things go online. You really need to be more discerning in your reading, my comments were CLEARLY meant for in store shopping and l have nevewr mentioned anything other than that, so it`s not my problem if you are too dense to see that.

l also check my bank statements so even IF it happened, l would soon contact my bank and get it sorted out, and would contact my supermarket to let them know what happened.
lt ISN`T a question of being " perfect" l have my faults like everyone else, but l AM always careful with my shopping and my finances.

lt sounds like yoou have an attitude problem to go insulting people who just post a comment about THEIR OWN experiences, and for someone who leads such a busy, hectic life you seem to be able to come on here and make quite a few, unnecessary comments till late in the evening, the solution for anyone getting ripped off at Asda is simply don`t shop there, simple!

When you shop online there is no screen apart from your laptop and when that clearly tells you the total and then Asda calmly debit a different amount from your bank you don't know until its too late and i think you may well find that,when paying by card at the checkout of the store,its quite possible that what comes up on the screen is'nt necessarily what you may get debited for. People lead busy,hectic lives and at times are so rushed they may not spot these things till its too late. I do hope you remain so very perfect in all you do that you never make a mistake and overlook the incompentance of Asda,though i doubt you'd admit to it if you do. The fault in this matter lies firmly with Asda and no-one else!
Don`t be so STUPID, I am NOT smug, that`s just YOU being defensive, and looking for an argument by the sound of it, but OBVIOUSLY only able to do it anonymously, online, as all keyboard cowards do, you certainly WOULDN`T have the guts to say it to my face that`s for sure, pathetic !!!

To your " point" if it can serously be called that, l CLEARLY SAID, that l DON`T shop at Asda, l also DID NOT specify whether l shopped online OR NOT.
IS THAT CLEAR ENOUGH FOR YOU??

So, OBVIOUSLY, i wouldn`t know how things go online. You really need to be more discerning in your reading, my comments were CLEARLY meant for in store shopping and l have nevewr mentioned anything other than that, so it`s not my problem if you are too dense to see that.

l also check my bank statements so even IF it happened, l would soon contact my bank and get it sorted out, and would contact my supermarket to let them know what happened.
lt ISN`T a question of being " perfect" l have my faults like everyone else, but l AM always careful with my shopping and my finances.

lt sounds like yoou have an attitude problem to go insulting people who just post a comment about THEIR OWN experiences, and for someone who leads such a busy, hectic life you seem to be able to come on here and make quite a few, unnecessary comments till late in the evening, the solution for anyone getting ripped off at Asda is simply don`t shop there, simple!
Oh dear,oh dear.....so touchy....must be past bedtime. Silly attitude.

I'd be more p'd off with Asda only giving me a £2 voucher for my troubles. That's tight for a company with so much money.

Easily done. People pay on plastic and never look at the amount, just type in their pin number and off they go.
Even when l pay by debit card l always look at the amount which comes up on the screen beforehand, but l`m still wondering if these " incidents" really happened, or maybe they happened on April fools day, only reported now, but then again l can be cynical, but only when l hear suspicious stories like someone being charged £450-00 for a loaf of bread !!!

Not as silly as yours though, eh !! and touchy, no, not really, l just get annoyed when people make silly comments or accuse me of things that l have never mentioned, like online banking, develop your reading skills before you comment, saves a lot of aggro on both sides!
