And Shaikh Ahmad bin Yahyaa bin Muhammad an-Najmee said in volume one, page 68 of his book "Fathur Rabbil Wadood fil Fataawaa war Rasaa'il war Rudood", issue # 30:

(What is the) Hukum of the statement (Shukran) (said to the one) who does a favor (or the like) for someone?

The Shaikh answered: "Whoever does that has left off (something) more excellent (or bountiful), and that is, the statement "Jazaakallaahu khairan"!

And with Allaah is the Tawfeeq!
