This happened to me today when I was in the supermarket. It was a sale sign that listed chips at $1.79 and when the cashier rung up the chips I was charged $4.29. Now that I shop with cash in my hand I know what amount I can't go over so I immediately told the man to take the chips off because on the rack it said $1.79. So that means if I was using my debit card and not paying attention I would have arrived home to see I was overcharged and would have accepted it. lol

Hm? Never heard of that. Anytime it happens to me, they simply adjust the price and continue on.

I've never gotten anything free because there was a discrepancy in price.
Nor would I ask anything more than them to give me the correct amount.

King Soopers (Kroger) here in CO has that policy. Got free rotisserie chicken and other various items free. And they don't flinch, simply null out the transaction.

Harris Teeter in my area gives them for free. Walmart also, it's written right on their policy stickers on all the registers where the card swiping machine is.

That's not so at my Walmart and I've never been in one that had that sticker. If something scans wrong we void and fix it.
