    Using the forums' handy tagging system I have tagged this thread with the keyword "screwfix" so that in future anyone looking for screwfix related content only can do something, I'm not sure what that something is but there wouldn't be a tagging system unless it had some sort of use, surely?

    I've noticed a lot of places like to take your email address these days to 'email you a receipt'. Useful in Halfords when I bought a £200 bike rack. Not so handy when buying a £3 bottle of car shampoo...

    This is an evolving situation. Money Laundering Regulations are getting tighter all the time and some companies are ahead of the game in keeping an audit trail even for smaller amounts. That said @TH63 makes a very valid point regarding marketing.

    It's definitely for marketing, they'll send you catalogues and latest offers in the post. If you ask them they will give you a card with your details on so you just scan it when buying future purchases, Toolstation and b&q Tradepoint do the same.

    Incidentally, tomorrow will be 6 weeks since I last used cash. It's great.

    Until the shop's internet goes down, then you'll be buggered

    It's harsh they punish customers for their own internet going down but if that's what has to be done then I hope that shop stocks lube.

    As already stated, most shops these days can't sell things if their internets go down. Besides, if that were to happen I'd be on hand to offer advice on how to perform a three pin reset to get it all back online.

    "perform a three pin reset"

    aka switching it off and back on again.
