Well over $10,000. This was a few years ago at my Super in the South. The guest purchased one of every single piece of furniture in seasonal at full price. Not just one of every piece from one collection, it was one of every piece from EVERY collection. He ended up with like 6 gazebos, 6 patio tables, all the chairs and side tables to go with, rugs, crazy amounts of stuff!
My biggest order on the lanes was $1,500 in gift cards and one guest purchased $800 of kids' clothes just for two kids. Her order filled 7 of those big red bags. She told me it was their Christmas gift. $400 per child just for cheap kids' clothes is a lot of clothing!
I take back what I said... rang up over $4,000 in giftcards at guest service once so that an employer could give them to his employees! Not really merchandise or anything, but, still a solid chunk of my annual earnings that some people seem to be able to drop on a daily basis!
When you guys ring something up over $2000 and its not a tv. Don't you get kind of fidgety? I get paranoid these days every time someone buys a bunch of giftcards or visa giftcards because it will come back to haunt me in a week by my AP ETL.
Reminds me of this one time when I had a middle-aged man buy rubbers in my lane. Our HR TL was covering GSTL break, and after the man walked away (without a bag - he declined one), she came over to me and said "someone's got a hot date tonight".
Yesterday I had a guest spend $1,600 on random merchandise and no electronics or relatively expensive items. I don't think she was mentally stable based on how she was acting. Also, when I told her her total, she didn't even bat an eye and said "that's better than last time." Most of my guests who spend even more than $200 have some sort of buyers' remorse or anxiety when they hear their total.
We've been having a ton of problems with our registers crashing recently, but it seems to be completely random which ones do it and what causes the crash. I'm not really sure what to do about it, other than breathe a sigh of relief when the receipt for each transaction goes through.
