Since 2003, businesses have not been allowed to print anything containing your credit or debit card’s expiration date or more than the last five digits of your credit card number.

Clear receipts out of your wallet nightly, shredding the ones you don’t need. But for receipts you save, keep them safe by going digital. An app such as Shoeboxed lets you create and categorize digital copies of your receipts and business cards. Plans start at $15 per month.
