I bought some Safeway pasta sauce. It was on a $5.00/Friday special.
I was charged for 7 bottles instead of 6. Once I got home I realized this and wrote to Safeway in Pleasanton, CA. After reminding them 3 times that I have NOT heard from them, they responded. They then asked me to take my receipt to the manager for a refund.
I threw the receipt away after a couple of weeks and did not have it. I wrote to Safeway about this also but never heard back (to no surprise). The special was 3 bottles for $5.00. For $1.67 I was not going to go back to the store (cost more in gas) but hoped they would have made it right.
When I initially wrote to them I sent my receipt number, phone number to track it, etc. Unfortunately Safeway is the closest store in the area.
I may have to *** the bullet and travel farther to Sprouts in the future. Good customer service-NOT.
