Disgruntled Woolworths shopper noticed an extra charge on his receipt for using his own shopping bags.
Cairns customer, Jason Taylor, took to Facebook to vent his anger after discovering an eight-cent charge on his shopping.
His receipt shows ‘#BYO Bag’ priced at one cent each, for which he had brought eight.
“Go Woolworths. Charging us to use our own bags. Sneaky little…,” he wrote on Facebook.
“This is disgusting,” one user wrote.
“That’s absolutely terrible!” another comment said.
A Woolworths spokesperson told Yahoo7 News that the charge had been a technical glitch.
“This customer appears to have been impacted by a technical error during the switchover from the old Rewards offer on Wednesday,” the spokesperson said.
“We sincerely apologise to the customer for this error and ask them to keep their receipt so they can get this rectified by a store manager or service desk manager next time they’re in store.
“At Woolworths, our customers receive 30 Woolworths Rewards points for bringing their own reusable bags when shopping with us.”
