If you haven’t had the chance to read the title of this post yet, you should. It’s all about getting a duplicate copy of your receipt after a purchase. Wal-Mart only takes paper receipts, so a duplicate copy of the receipt isn’t as easy as a copy of the receipt in the store.
You’re going to want to make sure that you’re on the same pay plan as the place you got the purchase, which means that when you’re buying something, you’re going to want to make sure that you can’t take the receipt with you to Wal-Mart. The easiest way to do this is to look within the receipt itself to find the last date on when that receipt was issued.
If you had a receipt that was issued after July 1st of any year, you will almost certainly find it has a date for the year after July 1st of the same year. If that date is the same as the date of your purchase, youll probably want to try to get the receipt from a different store like Costco or Sam’s. It’s true that Wal-Mart can take your receipt, but they only take paper receipts.
That’s a problem. When you look at the receipt you can see that you paid in full for the items, but that doesn’t mean the cashiers can’t give you a duplicate receipt you can use at other stores. But Wal-Mart has a way to make this process a little easier. They make it possible to get a duplicate receipt from Wal-Mart at a certain store by making it so that you can only get one in the first place.
Its a little confusing because if you try to get two receipts for the same purchase, you end up getting a duplicate receipt for the second transaction, but not the one you intended. This can cause problems if you want to shop at another store that has a Wal-Mart near you or if you have a card that lets you use a store near you, but still have to take the receipt to a different store for the second transaction.
Wal-Mart’s copy-and-pasting system is one of the largest in the entire world, so it’s no surprise that it’s one of the easiest ways to get duplicate receipts. To avoid this, however, make sure that the store that you’re going to use the receipt for has no duplicate receipts for the same product.
If you have a card with a Walmart store near you, you could use this trick to get a duplicate receipt for the same item from the same store.
Wal-Mart uses a copying system called “countershipping” where it copies the card details on the receipt for the second item and then changes the serial number on the item to match the one in the store. So, for example, if the item is a $20 item that Wal-Mart copies the $20 and then changes the serial number to match the $20, you can still get a duplicate receipt.
It’s actually a good idea. Wal-Mart says in its security video that it keeps a record of all the cards it issues. If you’re near a Wal-Mart, just visit the store and get a copy of your card and serial number. There’s a little bit of math, but there’s no need to go to the trouble. And it’s worth the effort because the store never changes the prices on the items.
So I wanted to check out the Walmart appstore. I’ve been trying to get the app for a few weeks now and each time I try to go to a Wal-Mart and pick up something there, the app automatically starts creating a duplicate receipt. I’m starting to lose hope in the appstore, but I think they’re working on a fix.
