Where are Those Credit Card Receipts?

Date: July 19, 2022

Do you find yourself frantically searching for credit card receipts when the time comes to reconcile your monthly credit card transactions?  Well, you are not alone. I, like many cardholders, spend more time than I would like trying to find receipts that I have placed in various folders, drawers, and other locations. One solution that I have found most helpful is immediately taking a picture of the receipt as soon as I get it.  This has made it so much easier to not only find the receipt but also upload it to my banking app. Taking a picture is also very useful in instances where a terminal cannot print out a receipt.

If you happen to be someone who is worried about running out of space on your smartphone, another option would be to keep a receipt organizer or small pouch at home or in your car to store receipts.

As technology continues to advance, more and more organizations are adding the option for an email or text receipt.  You may find it more convenient to choose this option in addition to getting a printout.
