    I go to Menard’s instead of Home Depot. I stick my card in the machine and I get a receipt. Boom! :1drink

    Used to do that until we lost our local lumber/building materials place a couple of years ago.

    My local Co has bought the competition; prices are high and service sucks.

    It ain't what it once was. :deal

    I use Samsung Pay, which works most places, even when they only have an old stripe reader. Samsung has some additional chip in there that emulates a magnetic swipe.

    It's not just Home Depot. Last two times I went to Lowes, even though I could pay via the phone, they wouldn't accept the four-digit code that the app produces, and I had to dig my card out of my wallet anyway. Real half assed way to catch up with the rest of the world.
