Has your grocery store gone Hi-Tech with personal scanners?

I shop at Stop & Shop & I LOVE using the personal scanner! It saves me time, it let's me know how much I am spending, it alerts me to store specials & even gives me specials that are just for me based on my previous shopping trips. I also don't have to worry that my bread will be squished or my eggs broken since I'm bagging my own groceries as I shop.
If your store has these, what do you think of them?

  • Yes Giant Eagle has them. You scan as you shop and bag as you go - I love it too!

  • I've never heard of that! We have the scan your own check out lanes, which I love, but I've never seen the personal scanners.

  • We only have the "self-checkout lines" so far. And we have always bagged our own groceries.I do like self checkout...and bagging my own groceries...I have my own way. LOL.
    Target and Kohls has a price check thingy--I like that.

  • YES! At walmart they only have the self scans for 12 items or less. But At Meijer they have a full checkout lane for you to scan your entire cart full of groceries yourself. I love it. My husband and I, on the rare occassion we by groceries there (we moved to the next town that doesn't have a Meijer) we use the full lane self checkout. It's beautiful, saves us time, and we can put more then three items in each bag. Drives us nuts to have a cart full of bags with two items in each bag.

  • Not yet- But I know all about the technology. There is also work being done for an entire cart scan- Just pay, bag and go.

    Check out this article. It explains the technology and the convenience pretty well for those of you that that don't have it yet.

  • Wouldn't that be an easier way for people to shoplift though? I think it's a great idea, but how do they keep that from happening? None of the stores in my area have them yet.
