Sam's Club To Stop Checking Your Receipt At the Door

Sam’s Club shoppers are about to get a major reprieve from one of the biggest headaches of shopping at the warehouse club. The company will soon abandon the practice of manually checking receipts as consumers exit stores. Instead, locations will use artificial intelligence and computer vision technology to analyze the contents of shopping carts in real time. With AI working in the background to continually speed the process, this digital innovation not only streamlines the member’s exit, but also allows exit greeters to refocus their time and expertise to assisting members and ensuring they have an enjoyable shopping experience. Sam’s Club recently introduced Scan and Go, an app-based shopping alternative that allows members to scan barcodes on their phone and skip the checkout line entirely. Scan and Go shoppers will also be able to make the same streamlined departure.
