Problem with that is that the barcode corresponds to a certain product in their database, and its name will show on the cash register. I'm affraid no cashier will let you get away with buying a 20EUR pack of steaks that on scanning registers as a 50 cent 'tomato'.. For example
The name and prices are both looked up at the same time from the barcode.. Not much room to mess with there.. Of course you can for example try to buy a very expensive wine for a cheapass one.. And hope they wont notice a different name (or just have it in the system as 'red wine' for example )

Just an idea....
