That’s about the size of it

    The CVS stores here now default — for loyalty card holders, at least — to emailing the receipt.

    I’m not aware of a self-checkout option though; if the local stores have it they’re not promoting it.

    I am off e-mailed receipts now after JoAnn’s made a bad mistake in ringing me up and I didn’t catch it until I was back home again (half an hour away). It was surprisingly hard to get it fixed.

    The only regular who sends me email receipts is the shrink, and I suspect this is the default of her payment-processing app.

    On the other hand, your home-tech types — plumbers and such — went down this road years ago, at least locally.
