This disastrous scheme *1 seems to have taken a turn for the worse with everywhere that now sells them *2 telling me or my girlfriend to "keep hold of the receipt, or they can fine you". What is the point of me bothering to carry the Walrus Card round if they're going to ask to see my receipt anyway, if only there used to be some sort of paper version which you could purchase :roll: Reportedly Northern have issued a briefing to staff to not accept a Walrus card without a valid receipt, can anyone from Northern confirm that? I've checked the Terms and Conditions and it doesn't support needing to show a receipt. I've emailed Mersey Travel, Merseyrail and Northern to get some clarification on this, but has anyone else had similar? *1 - I used to be able to buy a them in bulk in advance and scratch off when I wanted to use them, now I have to buy them on the day, usually walking in the opposite direction to the bus I want to catch in order to buy it. *2 - A lot of places now can't sell them, either there machine hasn't been updated, they don't have a stock of the cards, or the staff just aren't sure.
