    Today I went to store to buy iPhone. They have a device to scan my credit card and they also displayed my email in receipt. How did they know my email?

    Is your CC linked to your apple ID?

    Well if you have that credit card listed in an apple registered device or account it will show up.

    You probably linked the CC with your Apple ID via iTunes or the App Store.

    Interesting that someone with the OP's screen name would post this question.

    Every time I buy something at the Apple Store I have them email me the receipt. :)
