    I shopped in New Look last week and was asked for my e-mail address for a receipt.  I declined and asked for a paper receipt and was given one, no problem.

    Can't see the fuss with people that have email and access to the internet. Much easier having a digital receipt then a paper one.
    Just set up a free email account for receipts, or use receipts+powerfulroge@gmail.com

    Get a second email address that you are quite happy to give out in such instances.
    I have an old yahoo account I use and then I forward anything important to my correct account.

    Makes it a lot easier to save them.
    Rather than lose a bit of paper.

    It's odd that someone posts as old school, but at a guess is possibly using name & year of birth as their username.

    I returned a faulty item to Lidl once - I didn't have the receipt, but knew which day I had bought it and which card I used, so the manager went through their records and printed out a receipt for me. I didn't get the logic, but it was excellent customer service.

    I wouldn't be so sure in this day and age... ESG is increasingly becoming a thing investors are talking about etc. Sure it's great when you can combine it with data and cost savings but I wouldn't be as cynical as to say the environmental benefits are an unfortunate consequence. 

    Set up an insurer that will only write ESG positive clients, normally getting the investors to back broad spectrum insurers is really hard because some will like Casualty but hate Property or some don't want any more North America exposures etc. Our ESG insurer however was massively over subscribed by those wanting to support it and got highly favourable terms. Surprisingly even certain clients explicitly wanted to be insured by the ESG part of the business rather than the regular.

    Read, staff have been told to push for email receipts to save costs & capture details for further marketing.. Might even get a pat on the back for the number they do.

    Rather than they have gone paperless.
    They can't use it for marketing communications unless you opt-in to receive them. They could use it (like Clubcard/Nectar) to monitor spending habits, but not to send you marketing emails.

    If you need to return it you show the email receipt.

    What if you don't have an email address?

    Or you don't have a printer to print off a receipt?
