Even Adele can’t pass up a good bargain! The Grammy winner is a big fan getting in a little retail therapy at stores like H&M and Target while on tour in the U.S., but she did have one awkward experience.

“I went to H&M and my card got declined. Oh, my days, pretty embarrassing,” she told the crowd during her performance at San Jose’s SAP Arena in California on Sunday. “Nobody knew it was me, but I was mortified.”

According to Forbes, Adele is the ninth highest-paid celebrity in the world (and earned $80.5 million between June 2015 to June 2016), but even she knows the power of a good bargain-shopping trip. The singer told her sold-out audience that her first stops in California are In-N-Out Burger and Target.

“They have everything!” she said. “Literally, I spent $100 on stuff I do not need. I never need anything I buy at Target but it’s amazing.”
