At Rebecca's first meeting at Successful Savings, she pulls out a small notebook and lays a pencil to the left of it. In the next shot, as she pulls out a small pencil sharpener, the pencil is on the opposite side of the notebook.
While Rebecca is in the interview at Successful Savings, the desk behind her is alternately occupied and empty between shots. In one shot, Hayley talking on the phone, with the green scarf on her lap. In the next shot, she is gone. In the next shot, she is at the door, giving Rebecca her scarf.

Factual errors 

When Rebecca takes the green scarf to the counter the cashier says "That's $120." Rebecca gives her $50 cash, $30 on one card, $10 on another card, and tried to put $20 on yet another card which was declined. Although she does get the $20 in cash, the total of all of that is only $110.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

When Rebecca goes to Alette to retrieve the envelope that she mailed, she rapidly presses the elevator button, and it appears she is trying to go to the 20th floor. However, the floor numbers are listed on their respective buttons, and she is pressing the 17th floor button, but her hand is covering the number.
The bridesmaid dress had sleeves at the beginning of the movie, but is sleeveless by the end. However, when Rebecca first tries on the dress, you can clearly see it's still in the middle of alterations. Why she took it with her at that point is up for debate, but there is time between the two scenes for the alterations to be completed.
After Rebecca talks to the Nokia man, Janne Virtanen of Finland, he claims "We Scandinavians like her." Although Finns didn't used to consider themselves Scandinavians, this view has been changing more and more.
When Suze and Rebecca are going over credit card statements, Suze asks Rebecca how she will pay off "16 thousand, TWELVE hundred, 62 dollars, and 72 cents" without a job. Both women are very drunk by this point, so she probably is too drunk to read the number correctly.

Revealing mistakes 

When Rebecca is riding in a cab, you can see a close-up of the window. Two billboards are reflected in the window, but the images are not reversed.

Spoilers 

The goof items below may give away important plot points.

Crew or equipment visible 

When Rebecca first throws the block of ice to free her credit card, the block falls from the stove to the floor. As the camera follows it, a crew member is kneeling down, in black jeans and tennis shoes.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

Derek Smeath violates the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act at least 4 times: calling Rebecca at work, refusing to leave her job when asked by the receptionist, telling his colleague to threaten her with public humiliation, and his entire diatribe during the television show. However, many *real* debt collectors ignore FDCPA, since it's not enforceable if no one complains, and many debt collectors assume that most debtors don't know about it.
