Do you want a receipt? Do you want a bag?
Does anyone else experience this now?

What's up with this?

Do I want a receipt? Duh. Yes, I want a receipt. I have asked them countless times, what that is about.

I have asked if their boss or proprietor of the store has instructed them to ask this. They don't answer but talk right over me and say "Oh, people usually don't want one." On what planet? Ever try to return something with no receipt?

Also, do I want a bag. I purchased two hot 'sammiches' and 2 coffees (also hot). Would I like a bag? Uh, no, I am a juggler.

Is this to cut back costs? To keep returned product to a minimum?

I don't like it, do you?

 Quoting: Starbird


Hahahaha. I don't experience that here. They're just very nice, though. They are not that inquisitive.

Publix is omitted from this complaint that I have, though. They will take things back with no problem, and they don't ask if you want a bag or a receipt.

Aldi's (do you have those?) will give you the product for free, if you bring something back that you didn't like. I mean, if you take an item back, they will say, okay just get what you want, i.e. another kind of coffee and give your money back, too. lol.

Of course, they don't ask you if you want a bag, because they don't have bags - you have to bring your own, and they always give a receipt.

It's mostly gas stations (WaWa's), Walgreens, etc. etc. I mean, they don't make enough money with their jacked up prices?

I'm working in California for about 6 months. When I got here I encountered the bag thing. Was strange at first being asked if I want a bag for my 12 items. They charge .10 to .15 cents depending on the store. Nice, heavier plastic bags suitable for repeated use. Most everyone carrys their own cloth bags into the stores.

Is this at any store, or just the take your own bag store?

I like the bags for my dog's business, as well. I don't like being asked if I want a bag, if it's clear that I need a bag, and especially if I have given them a good amount of money.

the plastic bags are infinitely useful. imagine having to pay for the something to put dog waste in, or put over your hands when gardening around nettles or thistles.... I like the bags because they can be discarded after use where poison ivy is a possibility.

Re: Do you want a receipt? Do you want a bag?
Honestly only reason I keep a receipt is for bank, not to return anything.Out of town or something yes, I would hold on to it for that just in case. Where I am? They damn well better give me my money back or exchange lol, without a paper.Debit etc usually comes out auto but at times it has not and my mind has gone these days so try to keep up with it.Some one making me crazy around here,AND enjoying every minute of it.

 Quoting: Starbird


We have several Aldi's, but one is very close by. I haven't ventured into the fresh produce really. I got some bagged organic kale there which was super-duper, and a 10 lb. of taters for three bucks.

I like the cheeses because they are from other countries and taste good and are reasonable. I got a choc. bar from Austria the other day for severe and occasional choc. emergencies. Also, some different kinds of bread and pastries from Germany are nice.

So, I sort of pick only certain items from there. That's where you take your own bag with you, and put a refundable quarter in the buggy (southern for grocery cart), but I just put my few items in my bags that I take in, because I'm a buggy tard, in that I haven't worked out the buggy mechanics.

The stores that I go to regularly, when I check out, look at me and say "Oh yeah, a receipt and a bag." Hahahaha.

No. I am not sleepy. I slept all afternoon.

What'chall wanna do next?

Re: Do you want a receipt? Do you want a bag?
We had one store doing this, and I am talking supermarket grocery type, where you are buying several items with a value of $40 on up.

Now we have three supermarkets doing this in our area.

Let's say you have a problem with something you purchased and want to return it but you have no receipt. Sounds like there's going to be a bit of a problem getting an exchange or a refund?

So when they ask me if I want my receipt I say YES.

Re: Do you want a receipt? Do you want a bag?
Probably to reduce paper waste. There was a scare a few years ago about the toxic chemicals in the paper and ink. One of the recommendations was to forgo receipts on small purchases to reduce contact with them.
