There was a mathematical error in Grocery Game.  Three packages of the soap would have been $6.24, not $6.34, which would have brought the contestant's total to $19.14.  This mistake ultimately didn't matter as the contestant won the game, but it would have have been an issue if he went over by 10 cents or less.

It's very strange to see such low number choices in Safe Crackers these days considering inflation and that there is a $500 minimum for main three-digit prizes in pricing games (small prizes excepted).  Also, that computer and printer were shockingly cheap, even for 1998.
