Self check out?

do you like using the self check-out or do you prefer going through a cashier's line? just wondering because i went to walmart today for the first time in a while, and my location finally put in a bunch of self check-out registers. i prefer it because there are usually no lines and im not big on talking to people anyway.

  • Depends on how much I have. If its a full shopping trip I go to the normal lines but if it's just a couple of items I do self-checkout

  • I like self checkouts if I only have a few things

  • I prefer to use one with a cashier not sure why everytime I use self checkout the machine goes crazy.

  • depends on how much stuff I have. Today I went to Wal-Mart and had a large haul, so I used a cashier, then I went to Albertsons and only had about 6 things so I used self check out since they only had 1 register open with a line.

  • It depends on how much I have in my own cart/basket. If it's just a few items, I generally go to the self-checkout because it tends to be much faster than cashier lanes. However, if I have a full cart of things, or anything electronic, I'll go to the cashier and stand in line.

  • I like it at Wal-mart, hate it at Target! Never fails, I have something that someone needs to come and check out, the last time it was allergy meds.

  • I agree with the others- that it depends on the size of my shopping trip. If it's just a few items, I will use the self-checkout.
