E -receipts
« on: December 18, 2017, 10:15:01 AM »
So whenever you go shopping for goods now you seem to get the offer of having an e-receipt sent to you ...which of course requires you providing your email address.

Now I quite like the idea of having an e-receipt as I can save them all in a folder and am less likely to lose them unlike the papery version.

However what it does mean is that you then automatically get subscribed to the organisations hourly, weekly , monthly updates, newsletters and promo offers and then have to unsubscribe individually from the variations of this bumf.

I want to be able to unsubscribe at source and say you can only have my email address for the receipt and the receipt only . I tried this at the weekend and was assured that this would not be used for any other purposes.

Since then I have an email saying when their sale starts, another welcoming me to their site, another with this months promotions and another with their christmas opening hours  Banghead cussing: cussing: Banghead cussing: Banghead cussing: Banghead cussing: censored:

Didn't read it ...I was too busy struggling to find the size 2 font, that is no longer underlined or in bold, to direct me to the unsubscribe function  evil:

Anything that requires some sort of guarantee then I would go through this process of an e-receipt and hassle of email flooding.

But for usual crap or toot I refuse to give my email address and require a paper receipt  evil:
