That's very true. I think places do indeed do this. Maybe I haven't noticed it in a while, but Walmart receipts faded really fast I remember.

These days, just about all reciepts/slot tickets/etc. are printed on thermal paper. It is an inkless process where heat is applied to the paper to the pixels to be printed, causing the desired areas to turn black.

These will fade over time. Exposure to heat and light will accelerate this process.

A lot of public transportations services do this

Like busses where the driver doesnt carry change. But usually this due to convenience and convincing people to purchase electronic tickets in advance. Not to scam or hustle people out of small amounts

For awhile in NYC a $.99 cheesburger with tax at McDonalds was $1.08 but only $1.07 at Burger King. The 8 3/4% tax left a fraction. Mcd rounded up burger king rounded down

I was certain McD paid the rounded down figure to the state and pocketed the extra penny

Serving Billions can really stack those pennies up

It would be more like if you went to the grocery store and the self-checkout line didn't give you change, but the normal lines with cashiers did.




Pretty much exactly what it is. And that would be just as stupid to get a voucher for the odd change. We've got automated machines and they design the machines to be frustrating? Lord have mercy. I hope this trend doesn't spread to other areas of automation.

It's getting so the self-checkout lines at certain big stores don't stock their self-checkout lines with cash and won't accept cash. Only electronic transactions. I went to a WalMart and they had 6 self-checkout registers but only one accepted cash. That's just LAZY!

I get the feeling TITO Kiosks could switch to accepting only your bank card in the near future because countries are going cashless nowadays. It could make figuring your taxes easier at the end of the year, and it could make it easier for your bank to block you for suspicious activities.

It's because the machines are either full or empty of cash. That's the only reason.
