Do you think if you went to a best buy and tried to buy a $4000 TV and it rang up at 4 cents they would honor the price?

Yes you do have a Receipt showing 4 cents as the Price of the 500$ Phone Card, but you knew all along that the price was 500$ and still decided to keep it as the Cashier did not realize his mistake.
What is the practice in the US? I did experience price error in a US store and I got it honored as tagged price. In Canada, the store will sell it to you at tagged price plus 10% of price difference between tagged and actual price up to $10. It's all about what the "tagged price" is. It seemed andyh64000 means a "tagged price error", but you guys are more talking about a card transaction mistake.
