Think about the many times a bank statement or credit card statement has verified a payment that you were unfamiliar with. Certainly, you want to reference the purchase on your printed receipt; but if the printed receipt was faded or was lost over time, it is always a safe solution to have a digital copy on your preferred mobile device.

Receipts are critical for many scenarios such as:

  • Refunds- proof to merchants to issue an amount back to your account
  • Reimbursements- business travel costs, work-related purchases
  • Tax deductions- deductible expenditures on IRS returns
  • Warranties- proof of item purchased for coverage

Always keep in mind; rather it is ‘short term’ or ‘long term’ reasoning for keeping your receipts, receipts play a major role in your life! There is no escaping the need for receipts, both printed and digital. We all know it can be difficult to remember your receipt, that’s why Star Micronics is here to help!
