Consumer campaign to keep receiving printed till receipts looks like a good move – on paper

Or just have the till edit a programmable RFID with the transaction details on it - wave your phone over it and the phone grabs the details and stores the receipt in your own device, synched to whichever data-slurper you want, but encrypted and the store has nothing on you.

Have to agree that giving email details to a store to get a receipt is not what I want, but paper ones do tend to get lost/torn/wiped clean by the ravages of time (I have lots of blank receipts, it would seem).
