BBB warns to be aware of e-receipts
CHICAGO — As technology has become more advanced, stores have found different ways to incorporate technology into the shopping experience. In the past few months some retailers and banks have started offering consumers the option of receiving e-receipts. This paperless option helps to reduce clutter and waste, but the Better Business Bureau serving Chicago and Northern Illinois (BBB) reminds shoppers to be aware of identity theft while using this new technology.
These e-receipts offer new opportunities for both stores and consumers. For many stores the e-receipts are tied to the store card or the clerk can quickly enter your email address at the end of the purchase. It is a way for the store to save money and offer another option for the customer.
E-receipts also offer an easier way for consumers to keep of track and file away receipts to help with a return or exchange at a later date. They also help to cut down on waste and clutter for the consumer.
