When we use a self checkout, we should get a discount
Stores aren’t paying employees to check out my purchases, I’m having to do it. Discount for the time it takes to check out at the rate of minimum wage. Will probably not equal out to anything, but still. Self checkouts are only saving companies money, not benefiting customers much

Or slash prices on everything in the store if you aren’t paying as many wages

WalMart adding like 30 self-checkout lanes to their stores was one of the best changes they've ever made.

You are getting a discount. That discount varies based on him much an individual's time is worth.

No, because the people that dont know how to push buttons will be clogging up the lines

The discount is the fee you didn't pay for doing online pickup.

Or something like that.

Also, $1 off if you return a buggy to the store.

And the machines you operate are given to the store and also maintained completely for free?

And they do have someone working that area for issues like buying alcohol or things not scanning.

The discount is that I don't have to interact with store employees and I can quickly exit the place before I see someone I know.

Stores have loads of deals and price cuts every week. You have already been getting the deals.

No but they’re paying the checkout companies to maintain adequate machines, which in turn save me time.

I told my wife this long ago... there will be a slow transition to an added fee for not using self-checkout.

Have you ever got home and realized some of your stuff did not scan...Free or return it and pay? What did you do?

Way to propose making self-checkout a trash magnet.

Obviously. Selling it as "It'll save you time" without adding the second part of that sentence, "because we wont put cash in enough registers or schedule enough workers to man enough of them to check you out in a timely manner."

What's next...telling me It would be faster if I just rummaged through the fricking truck on the dock instead of walking up and down aisles?

As usual...Burr is correct.

The discount is in the form of time since you don't have to wait behind the only two registers open. I hate when I go to Rouse's after work for an item or two and I can't just do self check out. I've gotten real good at the Neighborhood Walmart and can do a full cart as fast as the checkout lines.

You actually pay more when using those.
