Whole Foods and "donations"

512window | Feb 21, 2014 04:37 PM

Was this an aberration or do they try this on everyone?

Went to Whole Foods after the gym. Get to the checker with my basket + reusable bag. I say, "there's a bag at the bottom." He starts to ask me if I want to buy a bag, but catches himself.

Checker: "do you want to donate your bag fee or deduct it?"
Me: "Deduct."
Checker: "Total is $37.19 - should I just round it up to $38 or $39 for a donation?"
Me: "No." delivered with my signature look.

I donate to the charities I want to donate to. I've never heard of any store doing this. How do you know what happens to that money?
