Do You Like E-Mailed Receipts For Offline Purchases?

Our smart-shopping colleagues over at ShopSmart magazine recently noticed a promising trend at some high-end retailers: stores e-mailing your receipt to you rather than printing it out on old-fangled paper. Stores trying it out include Apple Stores, Nordstroms, Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters, and a few Whole Foods stores.

Customers have a choice: I always opt for the e-mailed receipt at Apple, for example, because I am way less likely to lose an electronic receipt.

Paperless receipts coming soon? [ShopSmart]
