Receipts

I've always been lead to believe that receipts contact enough of my credit/debit card details that I should be shredding them. I know they use to show the whole number, but now only show the last 4 digits. So, do I still need to shred these or are they fine to just bin.

I'm stick of having to collect them to then have to shred.

Digitize what you need and I would shred anyways.

I think burning would be a lot safer than keeping an electronic copy on your computer.

Well I will keep receipts for record and proof of purchase for property purposes but not all receipts need to be kept. If the receipt is for a edible panties for your girlfriend and you don't want the wife to know pay cash and throw the receipt out the window on your way home. :blink:

Thanks for replies. However, the question really was do I need to shred and burn them. I'm already aware of doing this and shred mine. But do I need to? Can info be gained from them? We're talking about receipts when I go and fill up with Petrol or getting food from Tesco Express.

Of course I won't be keeping those for records, unless needed, I just want to know if I can safely dump them in the bin. Rather than having to horde them till I get loads to them burn.

It's an annoying hassle.

Do they contain any credit card details or any sensitive information at all. If not you can dispose them without shredding or if you are concern that other people might use it to collect information on what you buy, just burn them and you will be safe.

Hope this helps

They have the last four digits of the card and the expiry date.
