Target And Walmart Are Making A Change That Could Speed Up Checkout Lines!


When you go to Target and everyone is using their credit cards, time adds up when everyone has to sign their receipts.
That's why major retailers, like Target and Walmart are getting rid of signing your receipt at checkout altogether.

Most major credit card companies are phasing out the requirement that you have to write your signature to verify that it's truly you.

EMV chips in cards have made the practice less necessary, the New York Times reported, with one Walmart spokesman deeming it "worthless."

MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover have all announced plans to cut out this step in the checkout process, so it makes sense big brands would follow suit.

You won't have to sign for credit card purchases starting this month at Target, though Business Insider reports that it may take a while for the change to trickle down to mom-and-pop shops. 

It's hard to say just how much of an impact this will ultimately have on wait times at the checkout, though it should save a few seconds.
