Disappearing Store Receipts 11/2018
I’m sure you have bought something in the past and needed the receipt.
Maybe the item broke or you want to return it or maybe an insurance claim.
Then you think you have the right receipt but all the words and dollar amounts
can’t be read! The receipt information has disappeared!
Now you don’t have a receipt to prove you bought the item.
It’s all because stores use a thermal paper that slowly disappears.
The hotter the environment the fast the words and numbers go away.
What to do?
The easiest way to beat this problem is to use your phone and take
a picture of the receipt. Save the picture for proof of purchase when you need it.
