Forgetting credit card in Migros check out.

A friend of mine forgot to take his credit card after paying for the goods with the cashier( not the self checkout ) He came back to the store later to ask about the card but someone had stolen it. If one uses the self checkout this would not happen because the transaction only finishes when one takes the card out. Its stupid that the same system does not apply when one pays with the credit card at the cashier desk.

Are you sure about that? I completed a transaction and left my card in the reader. I retrieved it from the security guard minutes later.

So you blame the store because your friend couldn't/didn't read the message on the machine that said transaction okay, please remove card.

Always blame somebody else.....

It's stupid that I once lost my key, the manufacturer should have tied it to my neck since necklaces do exist....

With certain cards you have to. Also some people deactivate the contactless option for security reasons.

So how do you pay and is it quicker?

And anyhow using the new bought handy to pay is just a " look at my new handy ( eg iphone crap )" statement

That more people use cards than cash now? Certainly much quicker and easier by card than faffing about with money.

Re: Forgetting credit card in Migros check out.

I never carry cash nowadays, since a much missed CHF200 was stolen with my purse (detailed on EF) a few years ago. I have also not activated the passcode free ability of my EC card, nor do I allow credit facility on any of my credit cards for the same reason.

I like the on-line easyness to always check my account at anytime, and make immediate transfer to a card for purchases when required.

Twint is apparently really good, and I'll sign-up once it's proven.

I don't get any paper invoices either anymore. Definitely an improvement to the 'old days' of having to watch a stack of bills with one eye closed and then reconcile the pain.

Contactless card. You still put your PIN in for transactions over about 40CHF. Saves the 0.5s that it takes to put the card into and pull out of the machine.

Unless it doesn't read first time. Or you forget to press OK after entering the PIN.

Very true. But I'm not really worried if it can be checked that I bought frozen peas in Migros.
