Electronic Receipts for Traditional Purchases Printer Friendly Version
Purchases made in person in stores have a disadvantage for customers in that there is no electronic record of the purchase available for the customer, only a paper receipt. Since receipts are often needed for returns, proof-of-purchase, rebates, etc., there is motivation to mimic internet sales with electronic receipts. If the customer was willing to give their email address to the store clerk, these could be sent by email (along with advertising). If the customer wanted to remain anonymous, but still wanted a receipt, there could be a swip-able card that could record the purchase information (and advertisements).
Reward: Recognition for development of the idea.

Sodexho debit cards Printer Friendly Version
Use of sodexho coupons is a sheer waste of paper and adds a lot of manual work overhead (printing, distribution etc.,). Ideally, if Sodexho debit cards were issued, that get auto recharged as per eligibility, it would save a lot of time, effort and most importantly paper. Even department stores could identify only those articles/items that qualify as food products eligible against Sodexho when the card is swiped for payment.

Yahoo "Launch" meets shopping centers Printer Friendly Version
Yahoo has a service / website called "Launch." Launch will play videos & music for you, and you can tell the system if you liked the selection or not. With that information (and comparing it to other users' music taste), Launch will figure out your preferences, and ideally only play pieces that you like, including new ones you have never heard before.
It would be cool if a similar system could be used in shopping centers. In most of them, the choice of music is really horrible, and I'm pretty sure that most shoppers don't like it either. The situation could be easily solved by storing information about the individual shoppers' music taste on a customer card. Before shopping, you could "check in" to the shopping center, the system would know who's currently "in" and mix the shopping music to their taste.
Reward: Give me a special customer card that will give my music taste higher priority.
