Keeping receipts from fading
Any tips on keeping receipts from fading. This can be a problem especially for items with extended warranty.
I recently bought an Xbox arcade console from Big W. As the console didn't fit in a bag and I walked out with the receipt in hand some sweat went on the receipt and faded out some of the ink. I went back and was told as long as the numerical code could be read and entered into the system I'd be fine. Thing is there is a faded line down the middle where the printer didn't print it out properly. This might assist in fading out a didgit.
I went into the store for a re-issue and they said they don't re-issue receipts. I tried explaining that these consoles have 3 year warranties and asked to speak to a manager. Instead the lady spoke to the manager and again repeated no, we don't re-issue receipts. As long as the numerical code on the receipt was legible I'd be fine.
Some stores seem to be notorious for having poor quality paper and ink or just don't bother re-stocking when ink is low. MSY and JB Hifi are two I can think of. Apparently keeping receipts in plastic is bad as it assists in rubbing off the ink. I usually fold my receipts over and over and put them in a bag or box.
