    Default La sirena Puerto Plata bad experience

    Went there yesterday. Lots of clothing on sale with 50% discount. At checkout none of the discounts were valid and some items were priced more than 2 times indicated prices. Ie childrens shoes for a 3 year old marked 300 pesos were 900.
    Lunch some pasta and some other things over 1000 pesos. WHat is going on???
    Don't buy anything without checking and verifying price at check out.

    La Sirena discounts only apply when you pass your Siremas card at checkout.

    Doesn't Sirena en PP have scanners spread around the store to check prices?

    Any time I see anything on sale in Jumbo I check it on a scanner to make sure the sale price pops up.

    Paying attention to the prices displayed on the cash register or at least casually checking your receipt before leaving the store is always a good idea, just like counting your change.

    An item scanning at the wrong price is not a rare event. I'm usually not too successful in getting the item for the lower shelf price, so I usually have the cashier void that item and leave it behind.
